    1. Novel ultrahigh molecular weight amorphous PLLA bioresorbable coronary scaffold upsized up to 0.8 mm beyond nominal diameter: An OCT and histopathology study in porcine coronary artery model

      Novel ultrahigh molecular weight amorphous PLLA bioresorbable coronary scaffold upsized up to 0.8 mm beyond nominal diameter: An OCT and histopathology study in porcine coronary artery model

      Objectives The aim of the study was to evaluate the biomechanical properties and healing pattern of novel sirolimus-eluting, ultrahigh molecular weight amorphous poly-L-lactic acid bioresorbable scaffolds (S-BRS) that have been postdilated by 0.55 and 0.8 mm beyond the nominal diameters within the pressure-diameter compliance chart range. Background Due to the inherent limitations of bioabsorbable polymeric materials, overexpansion/upsizing may be very limited for some BRS such as the benchmark Absorb BVS. The unique biomechanical properties of the novel S-BRS may allow it to be safely upsized. Methods and Results 12 coronary arteries of 4 healthy Yucatan mini-swine underwent ...

    2. Peri-strut low-intensity areas in optical coherence tomography correlate with peri-strut inflammation and neointimal proliferation: an in-vivo correlation study in the familial hypercholesterolemic coronary swine model of in-stent restenosis

      Peri-strut low-intensity areas in optical coherence tomography correlate with peri-strut inflammation and neointimal proliferation: an in-vivo correlation study in the familial hypercholesterolemic coronary swine model of in-stent restenosis

      Background: Peri-strut low-intensity area (PLI) is a common imaging finding during the evaluation of in-stent neointima using optical coherence tomography (OCT). We aimed to determine the biological significance of PLI by comparing in-vivo OCT images with the corresponding histological sections obtained from the familial hypercholesterolemic swine model of coronary stenosis. Methods: A total of 26 coronary vessels of nine familial hypercholesterolemic swine were injured with 30% balloon overstretch and then immediately followed by everolimus eluting or bare metal stent placement at 20% overstretch. At 30 days, all stented vessels were subjected to in-vivo OCT analysis and were harvested for histological ...

    3. Neointimal patterns obtained by optical coherence tomography correlate with specific histological components and neointimal proliferation in a swine model of restenosis

      Neointimal patterns obtained by optical coherence tomography correlate with specific histological components and neointimal proliferation in a swine model of restenosis

      Aims Although optical coherence tomography (OCT) is capable to detect microscopic peri-strut changes that seem to be related to neointimal inhibition and healing, its ability to characterize these components is still limited. In this study, we aimed to compare different OCT morphological characteristics with different in-stent neointimal tissue types analysed by histology. Methods A total of 69 stents (39 drug eluting and 30 bare metal stents) were implanted in coronary arteries of 27 swine. By OCT, neointimal type was classified as homogeneous, heterogeneous, or layered according to its pattern of backscatter and optical intensity. The resulting optical patterns were correlated ...

    4. Correlation of Angiographic Late Loss With Neointimal Proliferation in Stents Evaluated by OCT and Histology in Porcine Coronary Arteries

      Correlation of Angiographic Late Loss With Neointimal Proliferation in Stents Evaluated by OCT and Histology in Porcine Coronary Arteries
      Objectives We aimed to evaluate the correlation of angiographic late loss (LL) with the degree of in-stent neointimal proliferation assessed by optical coherence tomography (OCT) and histology. Background Angiographic LL is the most common endpoint used in clinical trials for the evaluation of the efficacy of drug-eluting stents (DES). However, there are few data in regards to the accuracy of angiographic LL in the evaluation of DES displaying lower degrees of neointimal proliferation. Methods A total of 49 stents (36 DES and 13 bare-metal stents) were deployed in coronary arteries of 23 domestic swine and followed up for 28 or ...
