    1. Clinical outcomes of calcified nodules detected by optical coherence tomography

      Clinical outcomes of calcified nodules detected by optical coherence tomography
      Aims: The goal of the present post hoc analysis of the CLIMA registry was to establish the relationship between calcified nodules (CNs) with (CND) or without (CNWD) disruption of the superficial intimal fibrous layer and one-year occurrence of target lesion myocardial infarction (MI) and/or cardiac death. Methods and results: CND and CNWD were identified based on the presence or absence of superficial irregularities indicative of disruption of the intimal ...

    2. Prevalence and quantitative assessment of macrophages in coronary plaques

      Prevalence and quantitative assessment of macrophages in coronary plaques
      Although optical coherence tomography (OCT) proved to be able to identify macrophage clusters, there are no available data on the possibility to obtain reproducible measurements of their circumferential extension and location. The purpose of the present post-hoc analysis of the CLIMA study was to revise the clinical and demographic variables of patients having coronary plaques with macrophages and to investigate the reproducibility of their quantitative assessment. A total of 577 ...

      Clinical Impact of OCT Findings During PCI: The CLI-OPCI II Study
      Objectives The goal of this study was to assess the clinical impact of optical coherence tomography (OCT) findings during percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). Background OCT provides unprecedented high-definition visualization of plaque/stent structures during PCI; however, the impact of OCT findings on outcome remains undefined. Methods In the context of the multicenter CLI-OPCI (Centro per la Lotta contro lInfartoOptimisation of Percutaneous Coronary Intervention) registry, we retrospectively analyzed patients undergoing end-procedural ...

    7. Optical coherence tomography guided in-stent thrombus removal in patients with acute coronary syndromes

      Optical coherence tomography guided in-stent thrombus removal in patients with acute coronary syndromes
      The persistence of thrombus inside stent struts is a frequent event in patients with acute coronary syndromes (ACS) undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), and this phenomenon might be associated with an increased risk of stent thrombosis. We sought to quantify by means of optical coherence tomography (OCT) the presence of in-stent thrombus after achievement of an optimal angiographic result in patients with ACS undergoing PCI. In addition, we evaluated the ...

    8. Angiography alone versus angiography plus optical coherence tomography to guide decision-making during percutaneous coronary intervention: the Centro per la Lotta contro l’Infarto-Optimisation of Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (CLI-OPCI) study

      Angiography alone versus angiography plus optical coherence tomography to guide decision-making during percutaneous coronary intervention: the Centro per la Lotta contro l’Infarto-Optimisation of Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (CLI-OPCI) study
      Aims: Angiographic guidance for percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) has substantial limitations. The superior spatial resolution of optical coherence tomography (OCT) could translate into meaningful clinical benefits. We aimed to compare angiographic guidance alone versus angiographic plus OCT guidance for PCI. Methods and results: Patients undergoing PCI with angiographic plus OCT guidance (OCT group) were compared with matched patients undergoing PCI with angiographic only guidance (Angio group) within 30 days. The ...

    11. Head-to-head comparison of early vessel healing by optical coherence tomography after implantation of different stents in the same patient

      Head-to-head comparison of early vessel healing by optical coherence tomography after implantation of different stents in the same patient
      Objectives: Strut coverage represents the most powerful morphometric predictor of stent thrombosis and the best surrogate indicator of endothelization. The aim of this study was to get new insights on temporal patterns of vessel healing after stenting with different types of stent. Methods: Optical coherence tomography (OCT) was used to investigate the early strut coverage of lesions treated with CATANIA (CAT) stent, drug-eluting stent (DES) or cobalt-chromium bare metal stent ...

    12. Comparison of optical coherence tomography and intravascular ultrasound for the assessment of in-stent tissue coverage after stent implantation

      Comparison of optical coherence tomography and intravascular ultrasound for the assessment of in-stent tissue coverage after stent implantation
      At present there exists no direct comparative data for the detection of in-stent tissue coverage as assessed by intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) and optical coherence tomography (OCT) in clinical settings. To explore this subject, we investigated the correlation between the IVUS and OCT measurements derived from a contemporary population.

    13. Rapid Evaluation of Vessel HEaling After AngiopLasty (REVEAL) trial: rationale, objectives and design

      Background: Novel approaches to modify stents have been developed to address the limitations of bare-metal stents (BMS) and drug-eluting stent (DES), aiming for ideal features, such as decreased restenosis rates with decreased thrombogenicity and without the need for long-term dual antiplatelet therapy. Rationale: The Assessment of The LAtest Non-Thrombogenic Angioplasty Stent (ATLANTA) trial was the first-in-man study to show the safety and efficacy of the Polyzene-F coated CATANIA stent (CeloNova ...

    14. ClearWayRX System to reduce intracoronary thrombus in patients with acute coronary syndromes according to Optical Coherence Tomography after Abciximab Intracoronary Local infusion trial (COCTAIL): study rationale and design

      Background and objective: Prompt reperfusion with percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in the setting of acute coronary syndromes (ACS) improves clinical outcomes through salvage of myocardial tissue. Although use of intracoronary glycoprotein IIb/IIIa inhibition with PCI can result in improved rates of normal epicardial flow and myocardial perfusion, several unmet needs remain. The purpose of this trial is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of an intracoronary bolus of abciximab ...

    15. Rapid Evaluation of Vessel hEaling After angiopLasty (reveal) study: an optical coherence tomography comparative study versus bare and drug-eluting stent at 7 and 30 days

      The aim of the present randomized study was to address vessel healing at 7 and 30 days after Polyzene-F stent deployment by using optical coherence tomography (OCT) and performing a comparison with two distinct groups of drug-eluting stents [DES: sirolimus eluting stent (SES) and paclitaxel eluting stent (PES), and bare metal stents (BMS)].

    16. Optical Coherence Tomographic Results at Six-Month Follow-Up Evaluation of the Catania Coronary Stent System With NanoThin Polyzene-F Surface Modification (from the Assessment of The LAtest Non-Thrombogenic Angioplasty Stent [atlanta] Trial)

      Drug-eluting stents were devised as an answer to restenosis, but research has shown that the eluting drug can interfere with the blood vessel's healing process, thus increasing the risk of stent thrombosis. A stent coated with the new proprietary polymer Polyzene-F, is a novel technical solution that promises to decrease in-stent restenosis and tackle the risk of thrombosis. Fifty-five patients were enrolled in the first clinical human study (ATLANTA ...
