    1. Optical Coherence Tomography and Stent Boost Imaging Guided Bioresorbable Vascular Scaffold Overlapping for Coronary Chronic Total Occlusion Lesion

      Optical Coherence Tomography and Stent Boost Imaging Guided Bioresorbable Vascular Scaffold Overlapping for Coronary Chronic Total Occlusion Lesion

      We report herein the optical coherence tomography (OCT) and stent boost imaging guided bioresorbable vascular scaffold (BVS) implantation for right coronary artery (RCA) chronic total occlusion (CTO) lesion. The gold standard for evaluating BVS expansion after percutaneous coronary intervention is OCT. However, stent boost imaging is a new technique that improves fluoroscopy-based assessments of stent overlapping, and the present case shows clinical usefulness of OCT and stent boost imaging guided ‘overlapping’ BVS implantation via antegrade approach for a typical RCA CTO lesion.

    2. Intracoronary dual-modal optical coherence tomography-near-infrared fluorescence structural–molecular imaging with a clinical dose of indocyanine green for the assessment of high-risk plaques and stent-associated inflammation in a beating coronary artery

      Intracoronary dual-modal optical coherence tomography-near-infrared fluorescence structural–molecular imaging with a clinical dose of indocyanine green for the assessment of high-risk plaques and stent-associated inflammation in a beating coronary artery

      Aims Inflammation plays essential role in development of plaque disruption and coronary stent-associated complications. This study aimed to examine whether intracoronary dual-modal optical coherence tomography (OCT)-near-infrared fluorescence (NIRF) structural–molecular imaging with indocyanine green (ICG) can estimate inflammation in swine coronary artery. Methods and results After administration of clinically approved NIRF-enhancing ICG (2.0 mg/kg) or saline, rapid coronary imaging (20 mm/s pullback speed) using a fully integrated OCT-NIRF catheter was safely performed in 12 atheromatous Yucatan minipigs and in 7 drug-eluting stent (DES)-implanted Yorkshire pigs. Stronger NIRF activity was identified in OCT-proven high-risk plaque compared ...

    3. Feature Of The Week 8/31/14: Fully Integrated High-speed Intravascular OCT/NIRF Structural/Molecular Imaging In Vivo using a Clinically-available NIRF Emitting Indocyanine Green to Detect Inflamed Lipid-rich Atheromata in Coronary-sized Vessels

      Feature Of The Week 8/31/14: Fully Integrated High-speed Intravascular OCT/NIRF Structural/Molecular Imaging In Vivo using a Clinically-available NIRF Emitting Indocyanine Green to Detect Inflamed Lipid-rich Atheromata in Coronary-sized Vessels

      In current study, we fully integrated near-infrared fluorescence (NIRF) molecular imaging into intravascular OCT structural imaging. The OCT/NIRF single catheter imaging clearly demonstrated the microstructure of atheromata and simultaneously identified ICG-enhancing macrophage abundant lipid-rich areas of the plaques. Ex vivo NIRF imaging evidently validated in vivo OCT-NIRF imaging. NIRF signals on ex vivo fluorescence reflectance imaging colocalized well with in vivo NIRF imaging. In vitro ICG cell uptake, correlative fluorescence microscopy, and histopathology corroborated the in vivo imaging findings. Herein, our research team have solved the issues critical for application of this OCT/NIRF imaging technology to clinical practice ...

    5. Coronary Stent Fracture Complicated Multiple Aneurysms Confirmed by 3-Dimensional Reconstruction of Intravascular-Optical Coherence Tomography in a Patient Treated With Open-Cell Designed Drug-Eluting Stent

      Coronary Stent Fracture Complicated Multiple Aneurysms Confirmed by 3-Dimensional Reconstruction of Intravascular-Optical Coherence Tomography in a Patient Treated With Open-Cell Designed Drug-Eluting Stent

      A 55-year-old man with a previous history of cerebral infarct and hypertension presented to our cardiovascular center complaining of angina in November 2011. Chronic total occlusion in the proximal left anterior descending artery was identified by coronary angiography (Figure 1A). The patient subsequently underwent percutaneous coronary intervention. Wiring was done successfully with a tapered stiff wire (Conquest Pro 20; ASAHI INTECC). After multiple predilation, a single drug-eluting stent (3.0 × 18 mm) of an open-cell design and bioabsorbable polymer (Nobori; Terumo, Tokyo, Japan) was implanted using a 3.5-mm noncompliant balloon (inflation pressure, 24 atmospheric pressure; Quantum Maverick Balloon; Boston ...

    6. A Prospective, Randomized, 6-Month Comparison of the Coronary Vasomotor Response Associated With a Zotarolimus- Versus a Sirolimus-Eluting Stent

      Objectives: We prospectively compared coronary endothelial dysfunction in patients with zotarolimus-eluting stent (ZES) versus sirolimus-eluting stent (SES) implantation at 6-month follow-up. Background: A ZES has been associated with uniform and rapid healing of the endothelium. Methods: Fifty patients were randomly treated with intravascular ultrasound-guided stenting with a single stent to the mid-segment of the left anterior descending artery (20 ZES, 20 SES, and 10 bare-metal stents), and endothelial function was estimated before and after intervention at 6-month follow-up by incremental acetylcholine (Ach) (10, 20, 50, and 100 µg/min) and nitrate (200 µg/min) infusions into the left coronary ostium ...
