      Optical coherence tomography guidance for percutaneous coronary intervention with bioresorbable scaffolds

      Background The effect of optical coherence tomography (OCT) guidance on the implantation strategy during all phases of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) with bioresorbable vascular scaffolds (BVSs) in a real-world scenario has been poorly investigated. Methods Consecutive patients undergoing BVS implantation at our institution were included in this registry. Frequency-domain OCT pullbacks were performed at the operator's discretion during all phases of BVS implantation procedures to optimize preparation of lesions, confirm BVS size, and optimize expansion and apposition of scaffolds. Results Between September 2012 and July 2015, 203 BVSs were implanted in 101 consecutive patients at our institution (2.01 ...

    2. Is high pressure postdilation safe in bioresorbable vascular scaffolds? Optical coherence tomography observations after noncompliant balloons inflated at more than 24 atmospheres

      Is high pressure postdilation safe in bioresorbable vascular scaffolds? Optical coherence tomography observations after noncompliant balloons inflated at more than 24 atmospheres

      Objectives Optical coherence tomography (OCT) was used to investigate integrity and expansion of bioresorbable drug-eluting scaffolds (BVS) after high-pressure postdilation (HPPD). Background Because of concerns about the risk of BVS damage, postdilation was not recommended and applied in the existing randomized studies and most registries. Recent real world data suggest incomplete BVS expansion cause higher rates of thrombosis. In vivo confirmation of the safety of high pressure postdilation is of paramount importance. Methods Data from final OCT examination of consecutive implanted BVS, postdilated with noncompliant (NC) balloons at pressure ≥24 atm were analyzed. The following stent performance indices were assessed ...

    3. Three-vessel coronary artery disease evaluation by multimodality imaging with Near-Infrared Spectroscopy (NIRS) plus Intravascular Ultrasound (IVUS) and Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)

      Three-vessel coronary artery disease evaluation by multimodality imaging with Near-Infrared Spectroscopy (NIRS) plus Intravascular Ultrasound (IVUS) and Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)

      There is a rapid evolution in hybrid intravascular imaging for identifying high-risk biological and structural coronary arterial plaques in vivo and searching the missing pieces of the complex puzzle that determine the pathophysiology of myocardial infarction [1].
