    1. 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 ...

    2. Stent-related defects in patients presenting with stent thrombosis: differences at optical coherence tomography between subacute and late/very late thrombosis in the Mechanism Of Stent Thrombosis (MOST) study

      Stent-related defects in patients presenting with stent thrombosis: differences at optical coherence tomography between subacute and late/very late thrombosis in the Mechanism Of Stent Thrombosis (MOST) study
      Aims: Subacute, late, and very late stent thrombosis (ST) may occur after stent implantation, but they are characterised by different underlying pathophysiological mechanisms. We sought to appraise differences between subacute and late/very late ST at the thrombus site by optical coherence tomography (OCT). The Mechanism Of Stent Thrombosis (MOST) study was a prospective multicentre non-randomised registry which enrolled six subacute ST and six controls (subacute ST study), and 17 ...

    3. Randomized trial of standard versus ClearWay-infused abciximab and thrombectomy in myocardial infarction: rationale and design of the COCTAIL II study

      Randomized trial of standard versus ClearWay-infused abciximab and thrombectomy in myocardial infarction: rationale and design of the COCTAIL II study
      Background: Patients with ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) are at substantial risk of suboptimal procedural results and late adverse events. Angiography and optical coherence tomography (OCT) studies have identified residual coronary thrombus and microcirculatory injury as potential culprits for these adverse outcomes. We hypothesized that coronary thrombectomy and local infusion of glycoprotein IIb/IIIa inhibitors by means of a dedicated infusion device can synergistically improve results of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI ...

    4. 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 ...

    5. Association Between Proximal Stent Edge Positioning on Atherosclerotic Plaques Containing Lipid Pools and Postprocedural Myocardial Infarction (from the CLI-POOL Study)

      Association Between Proximal Stent Edge Positioning on Atherosclerotic Plaques Containing Lipid Pools and Postprocedural Myocardial Infarction (from the CLI-POOL Study)
      Postprocedural myocardial infarction is an ominous complication of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). Despite several patient, lesion, and procedural factors that may affect its occurrence and severity, it is unclear if implanting a stent edge on a coronary lipid pool, as appraised by optical coherence tomography (OCT), adversely affects outcomes. The aim of this study was to assess the association between postprocedural myocardial infarction and the implantation of a stent edge ...

    7. 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 ...

      Reproducibility of Coronary Optical Coherence Tomography for Lumen and Length Measurements in Humans (The CLI-VAR [Centro per la Lotta contro l'Infarto-VARiability] Study)
      Frequency-domain optical coherence tomography (FD-OCT) is becoming a useful diagnostic tool for coronary imaging for quantitative coronary analysis. Second-generation FD-OCT produces detailed coronary lumen images. However, the reproducibility of coronary measurements using FD-OCT in humans has not been thoroughly explored. Our goal was to determine the intraobserver, interobserver, and interpullback reproducibility of the in vivo FD-OCT measurements of the lumen area and/or lesion length. Twenty-five patients undergoing coronary angioplasty ...

    10. Early vessel healing of the Avantgarde cobalt-chromium coronary stent: the ON-GARDE OCT study

      Early vessel healing of the Avantgarde cobalt-chromium coronary stent: the ON-GARDE OCT study
      Introduction: Uncoverage and malapposition of stent struts at optical coherence tomography (OCT) have been associated with stent thrombosis. Stent uncoverage by OCT is being used as a surrogate to address the propensity of a stent to develop thrombosis. We aimed to appraise early vessel healing in patients with ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) treated with the novel Avantgarde stent. Methods: Patients with STEMI and multivessel disease were enrolled. The stent deployed ...
