    1. Difference in Neointimal Growth on the Stent Struts Crossing a Side Branch Between Sirolimus-Eluting Stent and Bare-Metal Stent: An Optical Coherence Tomography Analysis

      Difference in Neointimal Growth on the Stent Struts Crossing a Side Branch Between Sirolimus-Eluting Stent and Bare-Metal Stent: An Optical Coherence Tomography Analysis
      Background: A bifurcation lesion has been demonstrated to be the high risk lesion for late stent thrombosis (LST) following drug-eluting stent implantation, resulting from disturbed laminar blood flow and delayed endothelialization of unapposed stent struts. We examined differences in neointimal growth on the stent struts crossing a side branch between sirolimus-eluting stent (SES) and bare-metal stent (BMS) using optical coherence tomography (OCT).. Methods and Results: Of the 41 stents (34 cases) implanted across side branches, 70 struts of 28 SES and 23 struts of 13 BMS, which crossed over a side branch, were analyzed 9 months after stent implantation using ...

    2. Neointimal coverage of sirolimus-eluting stents 6 months and 12 months after implantation: evaluation by optical coherence tomography

      Background  Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a new imaging modality with resolution of approximately 10 μm and can be employed to visualize intracoronary characteristics. Sirolimus-eluting stents (SES) are susceptible to late thrombosis due to delayed re-endothelialization over the stent struts, which may result in acute myocardial infarction or death. This study was designed to evaluate the re-endothelialization and neointimal coverage of SES with OCT 6 months and 12 months after implantat

    3. Safety and Feasibility of an Intravascular Optical Coherence Tomography Image Wire System in the Clinical Setting

      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a fiber-optic technology that enables high-resolution intracoronary imaging. The aim of this study was to evaluate the safety and feasibility of intracoronary imaging with OCT in the clinical setting; 76 patients with coronary artery disease from 8 centers were enrolled. The OCT imaging system (ImageWire, Light Imaging Inc., Westford, Massachusetts) consists of a 0.006 inch fiber-optic core that rotates within a 0.016 inch transparent sheath. OCT imaging was performed during occlusion of the artery with a compliant balloon and continuous flushing. Intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) imaging was performed in the same segments. We assessed ...
