      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) in PCI for in-stent restenosis (ISR): rationale and design of the SEDUCE (Safety and Efficacy of a Drug elUting balloon in Coronary artery rEstenosis) study
      The optimal treatment of bare metal stent restenosis is still not defined. The most employed contemporary option is the implantation of a drug-eluding stent (DES). However, this procedure implies the addition of a second metal layer in the vessel wall, which is linked to delayed healing.

    2. Automatic segmentation of in-vivo intra-coronary optical coherence tomography images to assess stent strut apposition and coverage

      Automatic segmentation of in-vivo intra-coronary optical coherence tomography images to assess stent strut apposition and coverage
      The implantation of intracoronary stents is currently the standard approach for the treatment of coronary atherosclerotic disease. The widespread adoption of this technology has boosted an intensive research activity in this domain, with continuous improvements in the design of these devices, aiming at reducing problems of restenosis (re-narrowing of the stented segment) and thrombosis (sudden occlusion due to thrombus formation). Recently, a new, light-based intracoronary imaging modality, optical coherence tomography ...

    3. Automated stent strut coverage and apposition analysis of in-vivo intra coronary optical coherence tomography images

      Automated stent strut coverage and apposition analysis of in-vivo intra coronary optical coherence tomography images
      Several studies have proven that intra-vascular OCT is an appropriate imaging modality able to evaluate stent strut apposition and coverage in coronary arteries. Currently image processing is performed manually resulting in a very time consuming and labor intensive procedure. We propose an algorithm for fully automatic individual stent strut apposition and coverage analysis in coronary arteries. The vessel lumen and stent strut are automatically detected and segmented through analysis of ...

    4. Optical coherence tomography for guidance in bifurcation lesion treatment

      Optical coherence tomography for guidance in bifurcation lesion treatment
      Images acquired of coronary vessels during a pullback of time-domain optical coherence tomography (OCT) are influenced y the dynamics of the heart. T his study explores the feasibility of applying an in-house developed retrospective imaging-based gating method for OCT and the influence of catheter dislocation and luminal changes during the cardiac cycle on the outcome of quantitative OCT (QOCT).
