      Sheth et al 1 compared optical coherence tomography (OCT)guided versus angiography-guided primary percutaneous coronary intervention for ST-segmentelevation myocardial infarction among patients in the TOTAL trial (Thrombectomy Versus Percutaneous Coronary Intervention Alone). Patients (n=214) were imaged with OCT and were propensity-matched with 428 patients who had angio-guided percutaneous coronary intervention. There were clear OCT guidelines for stent optimization; however, operator compliance to follow those guidelines and whether optimal results ...

    3. Optical coherence tomography: A pathway from research to clinical practice

      Optical coherence tomography: A pathway from research to clinical practice
      For more than half a century, coronary angiography has been the goldstandard diagnostic test for the assessment of coronary artery disease, but it does not provide information about the components of the vascular wall, atherosclerosic disease burden, or the interaction of local devices with coronary artery walls. The development of intracoronary imaging techniques, such as optical coherence tomography (OCT), was conceived with the objective to overcome coronary angiography limitations.

    4. Optical coherence tomography appraisal of residual thrombus burden in patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction undergoing intraprocedural versus post-stenting prolonged bivalirudin infusion. Rationale and design of the MATRIX (Minimizing A

      Optical coherence tomography appraisal of residual thrombus burden in patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction undergoing intraprocedural versus post-stenting prolonged bivalirudin infusion. Rationale and design of the MATRIX (Minimizing A
      Aims: Residual thrombus accumulation around stent struts has been observed after the end of primary PCI and may represent a risk factor for acute stent thrombosis. The aim of this study is to test whether a strategy of prolonged bivalirudin infusion may reduce thrombosis of stent struts as compared to an intraprocedural only administration in subjects undergoing primary PCI. Methods and results: One hundred and sixty patients will be selected ...

    5. Frequency and predictors of thrombus inside the guiding catheter during interventional procedures: an optical coherence tomography study

      Frequency and predictors of thrombus inside the guiding catheter during interventional procedures: an optical coherence tomography study
      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is able to identify thrombus. We detect the frequency of thrombus inside the guiding catheter by OCT and its relationship with clinical and procedural factors. We screened 77 patients who underwent OCT pullbacks. Only patients with visible guiding catheter were finally included (35) and divided into thrombus (21) or no-thrombus group (14). Patients within thrombus group were mostly males (100 vs. 71 %, p = 0.05), with ...

    6. Coronary evaginations are associated with positive vessel remodelling and are nearly absent following implantation of newer-generation drug-eluting stents: an optical coherence tomography and intravascular ultrasound study

      Coronary evaginations are associated with positive vessel remodelling and are nearly absent following implantation of newer-generation drug-eluting stents: an optical coherence tomography and intravascular ultrasound study
      Objectives The purpose of this study was to assess the occurrence, predictors, and mechanisms of optical coherence tomography (OCT)-detected coronary evaginations following drug-eluting stent (DES) implantation. Background Angiographic ectasias and aneurysms in stented segments have been associated with a risk of late stent thrombosis. Using OCT, some stented segments show coronary evaginations reminiscent of ectasias. Methods Evaginations were defined as outward bulges in the luminal contour between struts. They ...

      Three-dimensional optical frequency domain imaging in conventional percutaneous coronary intervention: the potential for clinical application
      Two-dimensional (2D) frequency domain optical coherence tomography (FD-OCT) has enhanced our understanding of coronary atherosclerotic disease and is increasingly being used in conventional percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) to elucidate mechanisms of disease and improve our understanding of complex coronary anatomy. Since the first report of three-dimensional (3D) OCT applied in human coronary vessels,1 the technology has rapidly progressed.210 Currently, the main limitation of this technology is the need ...

    11. Angiographic maximal luminal diameter and appropriate deployment of the everolimus-eluting bioresorbable vascular scaffold as assessed by optical coherence tomography: an ABSORB cohort B trial sub-study

      Angiographic maximal luminal diameter and appropriate deployment of the everolimus-eluting bioresorbable vascular scaffold as assessed by optical coherence tomography: an ABSORB cohort B trial sub-study
      Aims: Bioresorbable vascular scaffolds (BVS) present different mechanical properties as compared to metallic platform stents. Therefore, the standard procedural technique to achieve appropriate deployment may differ. Methods and results: Fifty-two lesions treated with 3x18 mm BVS were imaged with optical coherence tomography (OCT) post-implantation and screened for parameters suggestion non-optimal deployment.

      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) of overlapping bioresorbable scaffolds: from benchwork to clinical application
      Fully bioresorbable everolimus-eluting vascular scaffolds (BVS: Abbott Vascular) are a novel approach to treating coronary lesions. The ABSORB cohort A and cohort B trials investigated the implantation of 3 mm BVS, up to a maximum length of 18 mm, in simple lesions only, The implantation of overlapping BVS in longer lesions has not previously been reported.

      Healing of a coronary artery dissection detected by intravascular ultrasound and optical coherence tomography.
      A 56 year old woman, active smoker with no other cardiovascular risk factors was admitted to hospital to undergo elective angioplasty on the proximal circumflex artery. A bioresorbable scaffold was implanted. Post-implantation IVUS showed a residual coronary dissection at the distal edge of the scaffold. In addition, OCT was performed showing an intimal flap reaching the first frame proxi8mal to the take-off of the side branch distal to the scaffold.

    18. Quantitative multi-modality imaging analysis of a fully bioresorbable stent: a head-to-head comparison between QCA, IVUS, and OCT

      Quantitative multi-modality imaging analysis of a fully bioresorbable stent: a head-to-head comparison between QCA, IVUS, and OCT
      The bioresorbable vascular stent (BVS) is totally translucent and radiolucent, leading to challenges when using conventional invasive imaging modalities. Agreement between quantitative coronary angiography (QCA), intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) and optical coherence tomography (OCT) in the BVS is unknown. Forty five patients enrolled in the ABSORB cohort B1 study underwent coronary angiography, IVUS and OCT immediately post BVS implantation, and at 6 months. OCT estimated stent length accurately compared to nominal ...

    20. A comparative assessment by optical coherence tomography of the performance of the first and second generation of the everolimus-eluting bioresorbable vascular scaffolds

      A comparative assessment by optical coherence tomography of the performance of the first and second generation of the everolimus-eluting bioresorbable vascular scaffolds
      Aims The first generation of the everolimus-eluting bioresorbable vascular scaffold (BVS 1.0) showed an angiographic late loss higher than the metallic everolimus-eluting stent Xience V due to scaffold shrinkage. The new generation (BVS 1.1) presents a different design and manufacturing process than the BVS 1.0. This study sought to evaluate the differences in late shrinkage, neointimal response, and bioresorption process between these two scaffold generations using optical ...
