    1. Role of optical coherence tomography for distal left main stem angioplasty

      Role of optical coherence tomography for distal left main stem angioplasty
      Objective The objective is to analyze the acute and midterm angiographic outcome of percutaneous treatment of left main coronary stem (LM‐PCI) guided by optical coherence tomography (OCT). Background LM‐PCI is a complex procedure, and several anatomical factors may impair its outcome. Intravascular imaging is emerging as a useful tool to guide the procedure. Methods We conducted a retrospective analysis of patients undergoing LM‐PCI at three European centers ...

    2. Relationship between coronary plaque morphology of the left anterior descending artery and 12 months clinical outcome: the CLIMA study

      Relationship between coronary plaque morphology of the left anterior descending artery and 12 months clinical outcome: the CLIMA study
      Aims The CLIMA study, on the relationship between c oronary p l aque morphology of the left anter i or descending artery and twelve m onths clinic a l outcome, was designed to explore the predictive value of multiple high-risk plaque features in the same coronary lesion [minimum lumen area (MLA), fibrous cap thickness (FCT), lipid arc circumferential extension, and presence of optical coherence tomography (OCT)-defined macrophages] as detected ...

    3. Long-term consequences of optical coherence tomography findings during percutaneous coronary intervention: the centro per la lotta contro l\'infarto - optimization of percutaneous coronary intervention (cli-opci) late study

      Long-term consequences of optical coherence tomography findings during percutaneous coronary intervention: the centro per la lotta contro l\'infarto - optimization of percutaneous coronary intervention (cli-opci) late study
      Aims: The role of intra-procedural Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) on long-term clinical outcome of percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI) remains undefined. Methods and results: In the context of the multicenter Centro per la Lotta contro lInfarto-Optimisation of Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (CLI-OPCI) registry, we compared long-term PCI outcome of 1211 patients from 13 independent OCT-experienced centers according to end-procedural OCT findings. OCT assessment revealed suboptimal stent implantation in 30.9% of lesions ...

    5. Optical coherence tomography or intravascular ultrasound to optimize coronary stent implantation

      Optical coherence tomography or intravascular ultrasound to optimize coronary stent implantation
      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) provides high-resolution tomographic images of the coronary arteries. 1 , 2 Spatial resolution of OCT (15m) is 10 times better than that of intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) (150m). 1 , 2 However, OCT needs complete blood clearance from the coronary lumen and, therefore, requires the use of contrast media. 1 , 2 OCT is unable to penetrate and see throughout red thrombus (that casts major dorsal shadowing) whereas IVUS is ...

      Expert review document part 2: methodology, terminology and clinical applications of optical coherence tomography for the assessment of interventional procedures
      Introduction This document is complementary to an Expert Review Document on Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) for the study of coronary arteries and atherosclerosis.1 The goal of this companion manuscript is to provide a practical guide framework for the appropriate use and reporting of the novel frequency domain (FD) OCT imaging to guide interventional procedures, with a particular interest on the comparison with intravascular ultrasound (IVUS).1–4 Technique for ...
