    1. Impact of Statin Therapy on Plaque Characteristics as Assessed by Serial OCT, Grayscale and Integrated Backscatter–IVUS

      Impact of Statin Therapy on Plaque Characteristics as Assessed by Serial OCT, Grayscale and Integrated Backscatter–IVUS

      Objectives: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of statin treatment on coronary plaque composition and morphology by optical coherence tomography (OCT), grayscale and integrated backscatter (IB) intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) imaging. Background: Although previous studies have demonstrated that statins substantially improve cardiac mortality, their precise effect on the lipid content and fibrous cap thickness of atherosclerotic coronary lesions is less clear. While IVUS lacks the spatial resolution to accurately assess fibrous cap thickness, OCT lacks the penetration of IVUS. We used a combination of OCT, grayscale and IB-IVUS to comprehensively assess the impact of pitavastatin on plaque ...

    2. The fate of incomplete stent apposition with drug-eluting stents: an optical coherence tomography-based natural history study

      The fate of incomplete stent apposition with drug-eluting stents: an optical coherence tomography-based natural history study

      Aims To assess the fate of incomplete stent apposition (ISA) after deployment of sirolimus-eluting stents (SESs). Methods and results Thirty-two patients having intravascular ultrasound (IVUS)-guided PCI with SESs underwent assessment of stent deployment with quantitative coronary angiography, IVUS, and optical coherence tomography (OCT) pre-procedure, post-procedure, and at 10 months follow-up. Incomplete stent apposition was defined as separation of a stent strut from the inner vessel wall by >160 µm. At follow-up, 4.67% of struts with ISA at deployment failed to heal and 7.59% which were well apposed did not develop neointimal hyperplasia even after 10 months. Lesion ...
