    1. Incidence and Predictors of Neoatherosclerosis in Patients with Early In-Stent Restenosis Determined Using Optical Coherence Tomography

      Incidence and Predictors of Neoatherosclerosis in Patients with Early In-Stent Restenosis Determined Using Optical Coherence Tomography

      Summary In-stent restenosis (ISR) still exists after drug-eluting stent (DES) implantation, even up to one year. The incidence and risk factors for neoatherosclerosis in patients with early ISR have not yet been elucidated. Here, we used optical coherence tomography (OCT) to evaluate the incidence and predictors of neoatherosclerosis in patients with early ISRs. OCT was performed on ISR lesions in 185 patients in order to detect neoatherosclerosis. The median follow-up was 180 days, and neoatherosclerosis was detected in 37% of early ISR lesions. According to the presence of neoatherosclerosis, patients with ISR were divided into two groups: neoatherosclerosis (group A ...

    2. Comparison of Anterior Ocular Biometric Measurements Using Swept-Source and Time-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography

      Comparison of Anterior Ocular Biometric Measurements Using Swept-Source and Time-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography

      Purpose . To compare central corneal thickness (CCT), aqueous depth (AQD), and anterior chamber depth (ACD) measurements using the swept-source (CASIA SS-1000, Tomey, Japan) and time-domain (Visante, Carl Zeiss Meditec, USA) anterior segment optical coherence tomographers (OCT) in normal eyes. Methods . Sixty-eight eyes of 68 subjects were included. Three consecutive scans of each subject were obtained using both devices in a random order by one experienced operator. Standard deviation ( S w ), coefficient of repeatability (CoR), coefficients of variation (CoV), and intraclass correlation coefficients (ICC) were used to evaluate the intraoperator repeatability. Agreement was assessed using the Bland–Altman plots and 95 ...

    3. Association of circulating levels of neopterin with non-culprit plaque vulnerability in CAD patients an angiogram, optical coherent tomography and intravascular ultrasound study

      Association of circulating levels of neopterin with non-culprit plaque vulnerability in CAD patients an angiogram, optical coherent tomography and intravascular ultrasound study

      Background Neopterin is a pteridine derivative secreted by activated macrophages. Previous studies have shown that neopterin plays a pivotal role in coronary artery disease (CAD); however, the relationship between circulating neopterin and non-culprit plaque vulnerability in patients with CAD remains unclear. In this study, we investigated the correlation of neopterin and vulnerable plaque features in patients with CAD. Methods One hundred and thirty non-culprit plaques from 81 patients with CAD were assessed by angiogram and optical coherence tomography (OCT) as well as intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) imaging. According to the median value of serum neopterin (10.61 nmol/L), patients were ...

    4. Whole Eye Segment Imaging and Measurement With Dual-Channel Spectral-Domain OCT

      Whole Eye Segment Imaging and Measurement With Dual-Channel Spectral-Domain OCT

      BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: To image and measure whole eye segments using dual-channel spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) and to compare the results with those from the IOLMaster (Carl Zeiss Meditec, Dublin, CA). PATIENTS AND METHODS: Twenty eyes of 20 volunteers were recruited. Ocular dimensions, including cornea thickness, anterior chamber depth (ACD), lens thickness, anterior lens surface curvature, and axial length (AL), were calculated. The reproducibility of SD-OCT measurements, statistical significance of inter-instrument difference, correlation, and agreement were evaluated. RESULTS: No significant differences were found between independent SD-OCT measurements ( P > .05). The ACD and AL measured with IOLMaster were significantly shorter ...

    5. Accommodation-induced variations in retinal thickness measured by spectral domain optical coherence tomography

      Accommodation-induced variations in retinal thickness measured by spectral domain optical coherence tomography

      To research retinal stretching or distortion with accommodation, accommodation-induced changes in retinal thickness (RT) in the macular area were investigated in a population of young adults ( n = 23 ) by using a dual-channel spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) system manufactured in-house for this study. This dual-channel SD-OCT is capable of imaging the cornea and retina simultaneously with an imaging speed of 24 kHz A-line scan rate, which can provide the anatomical dimensions of the eye, including the RT and axial length. Thus, the modification of the RT with accommodation can be calculated. A significant decrease in the RT ( 13.50 ...

    6. Noninvasive Imaging and Measurement of Accommodation Using Dual-Channel SD-OCT

      Noninvasive Imaging and Measurement of Accommodation Using Dual-Channel SD-OCT

      Purpose : To investigate the feasibility and practicality of real-time noninvasive imaging and measurement of ocular accommodation (0–5D with one diopter step) using dual-channel , dual-focus spectral domain optical coherence tomography ( SD-OCT ). Materials and Methods : A custom-built, dual-channel , dual-focus SD-OCT was used to image the anterior segment, including the cornea, iris, and anterior and posterior lens surfaces. Three consecutive measurements were taken in each accommodative session for each subject. Changes in ocular dimensions during accommodation were calculated based on the acquired SD-OCT images . A Friedman test was used to test sensitivity of ocular dimension changes per diopter of accommodation . Results : With ...
