      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 ...

      Inducing Persistent Flow Disturbances Accelerates Atherogenesis and Promotes Thin Cap Fibroatheroma Development in D374Y-PCSK9 Hypercholesterolemic Minipigs
      Background Although disturbed flow is thought to play a central role in the development of advanced coronary atherosclerotic plaques, no causal relationship has been established. We evaluated whether inducing disturbed flow would cause the development of advanced coronary plaques, including thin cap fibroatheroma. Methods and Results D374Y -PCSK9 hypercholesterolemic minipigs (n=5) were instrumented with an intracoronary shear-modifying stent (SMS). Frequency-domain optical coherence tomography was obtained at baseline, immediately poststent ...

    7. Bifurcated Lesions and Optical Coherence Tomography

      Bifurcated Lesions and Optical Coherence Tomography
      Coronary artery bifurcation lesions constitute a complex subgroup that are encountered in 1520 % of all percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI). 15 Compared with simple lesions, bifurcations have been associated with lower procedural success rates, higher adverse event rates, longer procedures, and worse angiographic and clinical outcomes. 1,3,512 The less favourable outcomes associated with bifurcation treatment compared with non-bifurcation lesions may in part result from the inability of current devices ...

      Optical coherence tomography in bioabsorbable stents: mechanism of vascular response and guidance of stent implantation
      Fully biodegradable L-polylactic acid stents (biodegradable vascular scaffold, BVS), the latest breakthrough in the area of coronary implants, entered clinical trials in 2005 and became commercially available in 2011. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) was used from the first implants to study the vessel wall response and the timing of the resorption process in man. Analysis of BVS with OCT has several advantages over that of metallic stents. BVS polymeric struts ...

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

      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 ...

      Bioabsorbable scaffold optimization in provisional stenting: insight from optical coherence tomography
      Since the emergence of biabsorbable vascular scaffolds (BVS), treatment of bifurcation lesions with these devices has remained a source of question. Although SB dilatation has been previously performed with BVS, it is not yet clear how dilatation across BVS strut may impact scaffold structure. A 74-year-old lady with hypercholesterolaemia and
