    1. 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 ...

    2. Comparison of in-stent neoatherosclerosis and tissue characteristics between early and late in-stent restenosis in second-generation drug-eluting stents: an optical coherence tomography study

      Comparison of in-stent neoatherosclerosis and tissue characteristics between early and late in-stent restenosis in second-generation drug-eluting stents: an optical coherence tomography study

      Optical frequency domain imaging (OFDI) was utilized to compare the prevalence of neoatherosclerosis (NA) and morphological characteristics of the neointimal tissue in second generation drug eluting stent (G2-DES)-treated lesions between early (<1 year, E-ISR) and late (>1 year, L-ISR) in-stent restenotic phases. Data comparing NA and in vivo tissue characteristics between early and late in-stent restenosis (ISR) after implantation of G2-DES is limited. An OFDI analysis was performed in 50 G2-DESs {35 everolimus-eluting stent [22 cobalt-chromium (CoCr), 13 platinum-chromium (PtCr)], and 15 biolimus-eluting stent [BES]} ISR lesions (46 consecutive patients) undergoing target lesion revascularization, classified as E-ISR (n = 22 ...

    3. In-stent neoatherosclerosis and tissue characteristics of restenotic lesions following implantation of second generation drug-eluting stents in unrestricted coronary lesions: Optical frequency domain imaging study

      In-stent neoatherosclerosis and tissue characteristics of restenotic lesions following implantation of second generation drug-eluting stents in unrestricted coronary lesions: Optical frequency domain imaging study

      BACKGROUND Differences in stent platform, polymer coatings, and antirestenotic drugs among the current in use second-generation drug-eluting stents (G2-DESs) may induce significant variations in neointimal response and vascular healing, which may impact the prevalence of neoatherosclerosis (NA) and morphological appearance of the restenotic tissue. METHODS AND RESULTS Utilizing Optical frequency domain imaging, two independent reviewers, retrospectively compared the prevalence of neoatherosclerosis (NA), and the morphological differences, and tissue characteristics of 50 G2-DESs in-stent restenosis (ISR) lesions (35 everolimus-eluting stent [22 cobalt-chromium (CoCr), 13 platinum-chromium (PtCr)], and 15 biolimus-eluting stent [BES]) implanted liberally in unrestricted coronary lesions. More than half of ...

      Comparison of neointimal coverage between everolimus-eluting stents and sirolimus-eluting stents: an optical coherence tomography substudy of the RESET (Randomized Evaluation of Sirolimus-eluting versus Everolimus-eluting stent Trial)

      Aims: The aim of the present study was to compare vascular healing response between the first-generation sirolimus-eluting stent (SES) and the second-generation everolimus-eluting stent (EES) by using optical coherence tomography (OCT). Methods and results: The RESET was a prospective, multicentre, randomised, open-label trial comparing EES and SES. Of the 3,197 patients enrolled in the RESET, nine-month follow-up OCT after stent implantation was performed in 100 patients (48 EES-treated lesions in 44 patients and 62 SES-treated lesions in 56 patients), thus constituting the OCT substudy population. The percentage of uncovered struts per lesion (8±15% vs. 14±19%, p=0 ...

    5. Association between tissue characteristics assessed with optical coherence tomography and mid-term results after percutaneous coronary intervention for in-stent restenosis lesions: a comparison between balloon angioplasty, paclitaxel-coated balloon dilata

      Association between tissue characteristics assessed with optical coherence tomography and mid-term results after percutaneous coronary intervention for in-stent restenosis lesions: a comparison between balloon angioplasty, paclitaxel-coated balloon dilata

      Aims Morphological assessment of neointimal tissue using optical coherence tomography (OCT) is important for clarifying the pathophysiology of in-stent restenosis (ISR) lesions. The aim of this study was to determine the impact of OCT findings on recurrence of ISR after various types of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) including plain old balloon angioplasty (POBA), paclitaxel-coated balloon (PCB) dilatation, and drug-eluting stent (DES) implantation. Methods and results Between June 2008 and August 2013, we performed PCI for 428 ISR lesions in 379 patients using POBA (78 lesions, POBA group), PCB dilatation (202 lesions, PCB group), and DES implantation (148 lesions, DES group ...

    7. Outcomes of everolimus-eluting stent incomplete stent apposition: a serial optical coherence tomography analysis

      Outcomes of everolimus-eluting stent incomplete stent apposition: a serial optical coherence tomography analysis

      Aim The aim of the present study was to evaluate the natural course of acute incomplete stent apposition (ISA) after second-generation everolimus-eluting stent (EES) when compared with first-generation sirolimus-eluting stent (SES) by using optical coherence tomography (OCT). Methods and results From the OCT substudy of the RESET trial, we identified 77 patients (EES = 38 and SES = 39) who successfully underwent serial OCT examination at post-stenting and 8–12-month follow-up. The presence of ISA was assessed in the OCT images, and ISA distance was measured from the centre of the strut blooming to the adjacent lumen border. Incomplete stent apposition was ...

    10. Optical Coherence Tomography Findings in Lesions After Sirolimus-Eluting Stent Implantation With Peri-Stent Contrast Staining

      Optical Coherence Tomography Findings in Lesions After Sirolimus-Eluting Stent Implantation With Peri-Stent Contrast Staining

      Background—We have sometimes noted abnormal angiographic coronary dilatation, <50% of the reference vessel, at the site of sirolimus-eluting stent implantation, suggesting contrast staining outside the stent struts and named this finding peri-stent contrast staining (PSS). Little was known about optical coherence tomography findings of lesions with PSS. Methods and Results—Between May 2008 and March 2010, we performed optical coherence tomography for 90 in-stent restenosis lesions after sirolimus-eluting stent implantation. We found PSS in 20 of the 90 lesions by coronary angiography. The differences in optical coherence tomography findings, including incomplete stent apposition, multiple interstrut hollows (MIH), strut coverage ...

    11. Multiple Inter-strut Hollow, a Unique Finding of Optical Coherence Tomography After Sirolimus Eluting Stent Implantation: The Prevalence and Clinical Characteristics

      Multiple Inter-strut Hollow, a Unique Finding of Optical Coherence Tomography After Sirolimus Eluting Stent Implantation: The Prevalence and Clinical Characteristics
      Background: It has been reported that Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) revealed cavities formation between and outside of the stent strut, Multiple Inter-strut Hollow (MIH) after Sirorimus eluting stent (SES) implantation. However, the incidence and the clinical characteristics of MIH are unknown. Methods: We analyzed the findings of OCT, in 60 cases with in-stent restenosis (ISR) after SES (n=52) and bare metal stent (BMS) (n=8) implantation. MIH was defined as multiple cavity formation which maximum depth was over 0.3mm between and outside of the stent strut in OCT. Furthermore, we examined the relation between the maximum depth of ...
