    1. Very late stent thrombosis complicating a previously lost and partially crushed stent: Demonstration by optical coherence tomography

      Very late stent thrombosis complicating a previously lost and partially crushed stent: Demonstration by optical coherence tomography

      Stent thrombosis (ST) is the most dramatic complication of coronary stenting. Mechanisms of ST are multiple, including procedural and patient-related factors. A considerable burden of metal inside the coronary has been associated with ST as suggested by the higher rate of ST in case of multiple overlapping or complex two stents procedure in bifurcation lesions. However, occasional stent loss and failure to retrieve it may be a substrate of ST, especially if multiple layers of stent struts are incompletely crushed. Here, we describe a case of very late ST on a partially crushed stent previously lost inside the coronary circulation ...

    2. High Levels of Systemic Myeloperoxidase Are Associated With Coronary Plaque Erosion in Patients With Acute Coronary Syndromes: A Clinicopathological Study

      High Levels of Systemic Myeloperoxidase Are Associated With Coronary Plaque Erosion in Patients With Acute Coronary Syndromes: A Clinicopathological Study

      Background— Systemic levels of myeloperoxidase predict prognosis in patients with acute coronary syndromes and are considered a marker of plaque vulnerability. It is not known whether myeloperoxidase is associated with different coronary morphologies (ie, rupture or erosion of the culprit lesion) in patients with acute coronary syndrome. Methods and Results— Twenty-five consecutive patients (aged 67±11 years; 15 men [60%]; 13 [52%] with non–ST-segment elevation acute coronary syndrome and 12 [48%] with acute ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction) were enrolled. Optical coherence tomography classified the culprit lesion as ruptured in 18 (72%) or eroded in 7 patients (28%) and detected ...

    3. Optical coherence tomography follow-up of the subintimal tracking and re-entry technique for chronic total occlusion

      Optical coherence tomography follow-up of the subintimal tracking and re-entry technique for chronic total occlusion
      A 44-year-old man, a smoker with dyslipidemia, underwent successful percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) of a chronic total occlusion in the right coronary artery (RCA). The site of occlusion was very proximal. An attemp to cross the leason was performed using an antegrade approach, during which dissection of the ostium occurred and the guidewire entered the false lumen.
