    1. Multiple complex coronary atherosclerosis in diabetic patients with acute myocardial infarction: a three-vessel optical coherence tomography study

      Multiple complex coronary atherosclerosis in diabetic patients with acute myocardial infarction: a three-vessel optical coherence tomography study
      Aims: The main cause of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) is the disruption of a thin-cap fibroatheroma (TCFA) and subsequent thrombosis. Mortality increases in diabetic patients due to cardiovascular events; there may be differences in the vulnerable plaques between diabetic and non-diabetic patients. We used optical coherence tomography (OCT) to assess the incidence of vulnerable plaques in diabetic patients with AMI. Methods and results: OCT was performed in all three major ...

    2. Endothelium-dependent coronary vasomotor response and neointimal coverage of zotarolimus-eluting stents 3 months after implantation

      Endothelium-dependent coronary vasomotor response and neointimal coverage of zotarolimus-eluting stents 3 months after implantation
      Background Zotarolimus-eluting stents (ZES) have a higher rate of neointimal coverage than the first-generation drug-eluting stents on optical coherence tomography (OCT). Objective To determine whether neointimal coverage of stent struts detected by OCT can be used as a surrogate for endothelial function after ZES implantation. Design Cross-sectional observational study. Setting Three months after ZES implantation. Patients and methods OCT was performed in 20 patients with a ZES at 3 months ...
