    1. Application and Evaluation of Highly Automated Software for Comprehensive Stent Analysis in Intravascular Optical Coherence Tomography

      Application and Evaluation of Highly Automated Software for Comprehensive Stent Analysis in Intravascular Optical Coherence Tomography

      Intravascular optical coherence tomography (IVOCT) is used to assess stent tissue coverage and malapposition in stent evaluation trials. We developed the OCT Image Visualization and Analysis Toolkit for Stent (OCTivat-Stent), for highly automated analysis of IVOCT pullbacks. Algorithms automatically detected the guidewire, lumen boundary, and stent struts; determined the presence of tissue coverage for each strut; and estimated the stent contour for comparison of stent and lumen area. Strut-level tissue thickness, tissue coverage area, and malapposition area were automatically quantified. The software was used to analyze 292 stent pullbacks. The concordance-correlation-coefficients of automatically measured stent and lumen areas and independent ...

    2. OCT guidance during stent implantation in primary Pci: A randomized multicenter study with nine months of optical coherence tomography follow-up

      OCT guidance during stent implantation in primary Pci: A randomized multicenter study with nine months of optical coherence tomography follow-up

      Aims To assess the possible merits of optical coherence tomography (OCT) guidance in primary percutaneous coronary intervention (pPCI). Methods and results 201 patients with ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) were enrolled in this study. Patients were randomized either to pPCI alone (angio-guided group, n = 96) or to pPCI with OCT guidance (OCT-guided group, n = 105) and also either to biolimus A9 or to everolimus-eluting stent implantation. All patients were scheduled for nine months of follow-up angiography and OCT study. OCT guidance led to post-pPCI optimization in 29% of cases (59% malapposition and 41% dissections). No complications were found related to the ...
