    1. Intracoronary pressure increase due to contrast injection for optical coherence tomography imaging

      Intracoronary pressure increase due to contrast injection for optical coherence tomography imaging

      Background Optical coherence tomography (OCT) requires intracoronary injection of contrast media to remove blood from the field of view during image acquisition. Contrast injection may cause a temporal increase in intracoronary pressure. The aim of this study was to compare the intracoronary pressure during contrast injection between OCT and coronary angiography . Methods We measured intracoronary pressure by using a pressure guidewire during contrast injection for OCT and angiography in 30 coronary arteries (mean fractional flow reserve = 0.90 ± 0.03). Contrast media was injected into coronary artery through the guiding catheter by using a mechanical injector pump. Results Intracoronary pressure ...

    2. Imaging assessment and accuracy in coronary artery autopsy: comparison of frequency-domain optical coherence tomography with intravascular ultrasound and histology

      Imaging assessment and accuracy in coronary artery autopsy: comparison of frequency-domain optical coherence tomography with intravascular ultrasound and histology

      ptical coherence tomography (OCT) is a coronary artery imaging technique with high resolution. Second-generation frequency-domain OCT (FD-OCT) technology allows safer and faster clinical application compared with first-generation time-domain OCT (TD-OCT). Only limited validation studies compare FD-OCT with other modes of analysis: histology, which is the current gold standard, and intravascular ultrasound (IVUS). This study therefore aims to demonstrate the accuracy of FD-OCT images compared with IVUS and histology. FD-OCT and IVUS images were acquired from 203 segments from 31 coronary arteries obtained at autopsy from 20 cadavers. Of these, 30 randomly-selected pairs were used to create three classifications of plaque ...

    3. Stabilization of High Risk Coronary Plaque on Optical Coherence Tomography and Near-Infrared Spectroscopy by Intensive Lipid-Lowering Therapy With Proprotein Convertase Subtilisin/Kexin Type 9 (PCSK9) Inhibitor

      Stabilization of High Risk Coronary Plaque on Optical Coherence Tomography and Near-Infrared Spectroscopy by Intensive Lipid-Lowering Therapy With Proprotein Convertase Subtilisin/Kexin Type 9 (PCSK9) Inhibitor

      A 70-year-old woman with hypertension and dyslipidemia underwent drug-eluting stent implantation in the mid-left anterior descending artery (LAD) due to acute coronary syndrome (ACS). Optical coherence tomography (OCT) during the index procedure showed lipid-rich plaque in non-culprit lesions of the proximal LAD and mid-right coronary artery (Figure B,E). Near-infrared spectroscopy-intravascular ultrasound (NIRS-IVUS) showed plaque with high lipid burden in both sites (Figure C,F). Intensive lipid-lowering therapy with combined strong statin and proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin type 9 (PCSK9) inhibitor was started after the index procedure. Scheduled 10-month follow-up OCT and NIRS-IVUS showed increase in minimum fibrous cap thickness ...

    4. Role of Optical Coherence Tomography in the Diagnosis of Spontaneous Coronary Artery Dissection

      Role of Optical Coherence Tomography in the Diagnosis of Spontaneous Coronary Artery Dissection

      Spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD) is an infrequent and often missed diagnosis among patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS), especially young healthy females. Unfortunately, SCAD can result in significant morbidity, such as ischemia and infarction. Currently, there has been a surge in the diagnosis of SCAD due to the widespread use of new intracoronary imaging modalities, especially optical coherence tomography (OCT).However, no specific guidelines exist concerning appropriate treatment for SCAD. Moreover, the role of intracoronary imaging with OCT has yet to be fully established. The aim of our review is to provide a comprehensive contemporary update of SCAD; the ...

    5. Effect of Early Pitavastatin Therapy on Coronary Fibrous-Cap Thickness Assessed by Optical Coherence Tomography in Patients With Acute Coronary Syndrome : The ESCORT Study

      Effect of Early Pitavastatin Therapy on Coronary Fibrous-Cap Thickness Assessed by Optical Coherence Tomography in Patients With Acute Coronary Syndrome : The ESCORT Study

      Objectives The aim of the present study was to assess the effect of early statin therapy on fibrous-cap thickness in coronary plaques of patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS) by using optical coherence tomography. Background Statins can contribute to the stabilization of coronary plaques. Methods This is a prospective, randomized, active-controlled, single-center study. Patients with ACS and untreated dyslipidemia were enrolled and randomly allocated (ratio 1:1) to either the early statin group (received pitavastatin 4 mg/day from baseline) or the late statin group (received pitavastatin 4 mg/day from 3 weeks after the baseline). Optical coherence tomography was ...

    6. Two-year vascular responses to drug-eluting stents with biodegradable polymer versus durable polymer: An optical coherence tomography sub-study of the NEXT

      Two-year vascular responses to drug-eluting stents with biodegradable polymer versus durable polymer: An optical coherence tomography sub-study of the NEXT

      Background This study aimed to compare very late vascular response after stent implantation between everolimus-eluting stent (EES) with a thin, non-adhesive, durable, biocompatible fluorinated polymer and biolimus-eluting stent (BES) with a biodegradable polymer by optical coherence tomography (OCT). Methods and results In the NOBORI-BES Versus XIENCE V/PROMUS-EES Trial (NEXT), a formal OCT substudy investigated 48 patients (27 EES-treated lesions in 23 patients and 28 BES-treated lesions in 25 patients) with 2-year (18–30 months) follow-up imaging at 18 centers. The percentage of uncovered strut by neointima was significantly lower in EES compared with BES (2.1 ± 4.7% vs ...

    7. Optical Coherence Tomography Predictors for Edge Restenosis After Everolimus-Eluting Stent Implantation

      Optical Coherence Tomography Predictors for Edge Restenosis After Everolimus-Eluting Stent Implantation

      Background— Stent edge restenosis (SER) remains a potential limitation of drug-eluting stents. The aim of this study was to determine optical coherence tomography (OCT) predictors for angiographic late SER after everolimus-eluting stent implantation. Methods and Results— We retrospectively analyzed 319 patients who underwent OCT immediately after everolimus-eluting stent implantation and scheduled 9- to 12-month follow-up angiography. The binary angiographic SER rate was 10% (32/319) in the patients, 8.4% (32/382) in lesions, and 4.4% (33/744) in stent edge segments. In the stent edge segments at post stenting, OCT-derived lipidic plaque (61% versus 20%; P <0.001 ...

    8. Reduction of in-stent thrombus immediately after percutaneous coronary intervention by pretreatment with prasugrel compared with clopidogrel: An optical coherence tomography study

      Reduction of in-stent thrombus immediately after percutaneous coronary intervention by pretreatment with prasugrel compared with clopidogrel: An optical coherence tomography study

      Background Prasugrel is a new-generation thienopyridine antiplatelet agent that provides more consistent and prompt platelet inhibition than clopidogrel. The aim of this study was to compare in-stent thrombus inhibition effect of pretreatment with prasugrel and clopidogrel by using optical coherence tomography (OCT) immediately after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for acute coronary syndrome (ACS). Methods We performed OCT immediately after PCI in 108 ACS patients pretreated with either prasugrel ( n = 51) or clopidogrel ( n = 57). OCT detected thrombus/plaque protrusion in all stented segments. Results Although stent volume (190.4 ± 119.1 mm 3 vs. 189.4 ± 95.8 mm 3 ...
