      Prospectively electrocardiogram-triggered high-pitch spiral acquisition coronary computed tomography angiography for assessment of biodegradable vascular scaffold expansion: Comparison with optical coherence tomography

      BVS polymeric struts are transparent to the light so that the vessel wall contour can be easily visualized using optical coherence tomography (OCT). Therefore OCT represents a unique tool for both the evaluation of the resorption process and for the assessment of acute BVS mechanical failure. Similarly, the metal-free struts allow unrestricted coronary computed tomography angiography (CCTA), thus this non invasive method might become the gold standard for a non invasive assessment of BVS. In this case we show the ability of CCTA, performed with a low X-Ray dose, to provide a good evaluation of scaffold expansion. The quantitative measurements ...

      Coronary artery aneurysm following stent implantation: insights from serial multiple intravascular imaging modalities

      Coronary artery aneurysms after coronary intervention are rare and most ‘aneurysms’ are, in fact, pseudoaneurysms rather than true aneurysms. A correct diagnosis is mandatory for optimal management of this rare coronary complication. Intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) has become the gold standard for providing crucial information on the anatomical composition of the vessel wall, necessary to achieve the diagnosis. On the other hand, optical coherence tomography (OCT) is the most accurate diagnostic tool for providing luminal coronary measurement,
