    1. Intracoronary optical coherence tomography: Clinical and research applications and intravascular imaging software overview

      Intracoronary optical coherence tomography: Clinical and research applications and intravascular imaging software overview
      By providing valuable information about the coronary artery wall and lumen, intravascular imaging may aid in optimizing interventional procedure results and thereby could improve clinical outcomes following percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). Intravascular optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a light-based technology with a tissue penetration of approximately 1 to 3 mm and provides near histological resolution. It has emerged as a technological breakthrough in intravascular imaging with multiple clinical and research ...

    2. Optical coherence tomography evaluation of intermediate-term healing of different stent types: systemic review and meta-analysis

      Optical coherence tomography evaluation of intermediate-term healing of different stent types: systemic review and meta-analysis
      Aims The intermediate-term incidence of strut malapposition (SM) and uncovered struts (US), and the degree of neointimal thickness (NIT) according to stent type have not been characterized. Methods and results All studies of 50 patients in which optical coherence tomography was performed between 6 and 12 months after stent implantation were included. The incidences of SM and US were the co-primary end points, while NIT was the secondary end point ...
