    4. Comparative analysis method of permanent metallic stents (XIENCE) and bioresorbable poly-L-lactic (PLLA) scaffolds (Absorb) on optical coherence tomography at baseline and follow-up

      Comparative analysis method of permanent metallic stents (XIENCE) and bioresorbable poly-L-lactic (PLLA) scaffolds (Absorb) on optical coherence tomography at baseline and follow-up
      Aims: Fully bioresorbable Absorb poly-L-lactic-acid (PLLA) scaffolds (Abbott Vascular, Santa Clara, CA, USA) are a novel approach for the treatment of coronary narrowing. Due to the translucency of the material (PLLA), the optical coherence tomography (OCT) measurement methods used in the ABSORB trials were unique but not applicable for permanent metallic stents. When the Absorb scaffold and metallic stents are compared in the context of randomised trials, it is challenging ...

    5. Error propagation in the characterization of atheromatic plaque types based on imaging

      Error propagation in the characterization of atheromatic plaque types based on imaging
      Imaging systems transmit and acquire signals and are subject to errors including: error sources, signal variations or possible calibration errors. These errors are included in all imaging systems for atherosclerosis and are propagated to methodologies implemented for the segmentation and characterization of atherosclerotic plaque. In this paper, we present a study for the propagation of imaging errors and image segmentation errors in plaque characterization methods applied to 2D vascular images ...

    6. Methodology for fully automated segmentation and plaque characterization in intracoronary optical coherence tomography images

      Methodology for fully automated segmentation and plaque characterization in intracoronary optical coherence tomography images
      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a light-based intracoronary imaging modality that provides high-resolution cross-sectional images of the luminal and plaque morphology. Currently, the segmentation of OCT images and identification of the composition of plaque are mainly performed manually by expert observers. However, this process is laborious and time consuming and its accuracy relies on the expertise of the observer. To address these limitations, we present a methodology that is able ...

    11. The fate of incomplete stent apposition with drug-eluting stents: an optical coherence tomography-based natural history study

      The fate of incomplete stent apposition with drug-eluting stents: an optical coherence tomography-based natural history study
      Aims To assess the fate of incomplete stent apposition (ISA) after deployment of sirolimus-eluting stents (SESs). Methods and results Thirty-two patients having intravascular ultrasound (IVUS)-guided PCI with SESs underwent assessment of stent deployment with quantitative coronary angiography, IVUS, and optical coherence tomography (OCT) pre-procedure, post-procedure, and at 10 months follow-up. Incomplete stent apposition was defined as separation of a stent strut from the inner vessel wall by 160 m ...

      A 69 year old man was admitted with unstable angina (Class IIB). He had a history of chronic renal impairment, diabetes melltus, hypertension and coronary bypass surgery in 1997 (LIMA graft to the LAD and diagonal branch, saphenous vein grafts to the RCA and first marginal branch of LCx). Diagnostic coronary angiogram revealed: occlusion of the proximal LCx and RCA.

    15. A Multicentre Evaluation of the Safety of Intra-Coronary Optical Coherence Tomography

      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is increasingly being applied to the coronary arteries. However, the risks associated with the imaging procedure are not yet well defined. The purpose of the present multicentre registry was to access the acute complicaitons associated with the clinical use of intera-coronary OCT in a large number of patients.
