      New Volumetric Analysis Method for Stent Expansion and its Correlation With Final Fractional Flow Reserve and Clinical Outcome An ILUMIEN I Substudy

      Download figure Open in new tab Download powerpoint Abstract Objectives This study sought to compare conventional methodology (CM) with a newly described optical coherence tomography (OCT)-derived volumetric stent expansion analysis in terms of fractional flow reserve (FFR)-derived physiology and device-oriented composite endpoints (DoCE). Background The analysis of coronary stent expansion with intracoronary imaging has used CM that relies on the analysis of selected single cross-sections for several decades. The introduction of OCT with its ability to perform semiautomated volumetric analysis opens opportunities to redefine optimal stent expansion. Methods A total of 291 lesions treated with post-stent OCT and ...

      Optical coherence tomography imaging during percutaneous coronary intervention impacts physician decision-making: ILUMIEN I Study

      Aims ILUMIEN I is the largest prospective, non-randomized, observational study of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) procedural practice in patients undergoing intra-procedural pre- and post-PCI fractional flow reserve (FFR) and optical coherence tomography (OCT). We report on the impact of OCT on physician decision-making and the association with post-PCI FFR values and early clinical events. Methods and results Optical coherence tomography and documentary FFR were performed pre- and post-PCI in 418 patients (with 467 stenoses) with stable or unstable angina or NSTEMI. Based on pre-PCI OCT, the procedure was altered in 55% of patients (57% of all stenoses) by selecting different ...
