      Myocardial ischemia due to a recanalized chronic coronary thrombus: Angiographic and optical coherence tomography imaging insights

      Chronic organized thrombus as a result of prior untreated myocardial infarction can determine myocardial ischemia. This entity appears as an angiographically irregular and hazy image; optical coherence tomography is useful to evaluate these ambiguous lesions and guide interventional treatment.

    2. Optical Coherence Tomographic Results at Six-Month Follow-Up Evaluation of the Catania Coronary Stent System With NanoThin Polyzene-F Surface Modification (from the Assessment of The LAtest Non-Thrombogenic Angioplasty Stent [atlanta] Trial)

      Drug-eluting stents were devised as an answer to restenosis, but research has shown that the eluting drug can interfere with the blood vessel's healing process, thus increasing the risk of stent thrombosis. A stent coated with the new proprietary polymer Polyzene-F, is a novel technical solution that promises to decrease in-stent restenosis and tackle the risk of thrombosis. Fifty-five patients were enrolled in the first clinical human study (ATLANTA registry), addressing the short-term follow-up results of the CATANIA stent with Polyzene-F. As a part of the study protocol, 15 patients were randomly assigned to optical coherence tomographic (OCT) examination ...

    3. First-in-Man 1-Year Clinical Outcomes of the Catania Coronary Stent System With Nanothin Polyzene-F in De Novo Native Coronary Artery Lesions: The Atlanta (Assessment of The Latest Non-Thrombogenic Angioplasty stent) Trial

      Objectives: This study sought to assess safety and efficacy of implantation of the Catania Coronary Stent System with Nanothin Polyzene-F (CeloNova BioSciences, Newnan, Georgia) in human coronary arteries with clinical data and comprehensive intracoronary imaging. Background: Novel approaches to modify stents (e.g., bioactive agents, coatings) have been developed to address the limitations of bare-metal and drug-eluting stents (e.g., restenosis, target lesion revascularization [TLR], late thrombosis). Methods: This first-in-man study using the Catania stent is a prospective, single center, nonrandomized, single-arm study of 55 patients with symptomatic ischemic heart disease with de novo, obstructive lesions of native coronary arteries ...
