    1. Biomechanical stress in coronary atherosclerosis: emerging insights from computational modelling

      Biomechanical stress in coronary atherosclerosis: emerging insights from computational modelling
      Coronary plaque rupture is the most common cause of vessel thrombosis and acute coronary syndrome. The accurate early detection of plaques prone to rupture may allow prospective, preventative treatment; however, current diagnostic methods remain inadequate to detect these lesions. Established imaging features indicating vulnerability do not confer adequate specificity for symptomatic rupture. Similarly, even though experimental and computational studies have underscored the importance of endothelial shear stress in progressive atherosclerosis ...

      Expert review document part 2: methodology, terminology and clinical applications of optical coherence tomography for the assessment of interventional procedures
      Introduction This document is complementary to an Expert Review Document on Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) for the study of coronary arteries and atherosclerosis.1 The goal of this companion manuscript is to provide a practical guide framework for the appropriate use and reporting of the novel frequency domain (FD) OCT imaging to guide interventional procedures, with a particular interest on the comparison with intravascular ultrasound (IVUS).1–4 Technique for ...

    5. A Multicentre Evaluation of the Safety of Intra-Coronary Optical Coherence Tomography

      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is increasingly being applied to the coronary arteries. However, the risks associated with the imaging procedure are not yet well defined. The purpose of the present multicentre registry was to access the acute complicaitons associated with the clinical use of intera-coronary OCT in a large number of patients.

    8. The influence of strut thickness and cell design on immediate apposition of drug-eluting stents assessed by optical coherence tomography

      Background Stent strut malapposition correlates with poor intimal coverage and this may increase the risk of late stent thrombosis. At present, there is limited data on whether stent strut thickness and stent design impact on acute apposition. We aimed to investigate the influence of stent strut thickness and design on acute stent strut apposition (SSA) immediately following drug-eluting stent (DES) implantation using optical coherence tomography (OCT), a technique with higher ...

    9. The use of intra-coronary optical coherence tomography for the assessment of sirolimus-eluting stent fracture

      Drug-eluting stents (DES) have made a tremendous impact on the practice of percutaneous coronary intervention. Recently however, long-term DES failures have become a focal point, particularly with restenosis and thrombosis. An uncommon, yet important cause of DES failure is stent fracture. Of the two established first generation DES, the sirolimus-eluting stent (SES) has been particularly linked to cases of stent fracture, likely as a result of its closed cell design ...

    10. Assessment of Culprit and Remote Coronary Narrowings Using Optical Coherence Tomography With Long-Term Outcomes

      Much currently known information about vulnerable plaque stems from postmortem studies that identified several characteristics making them prone to rupture, including the presence of a thin fibrous cap and a large lipid core. This study used optical coherence tomography (OCT) to assess culprit and remote coronary narrowings and investigate whether intracoronary OCT in living patients was able to visualize morphologic features associated with vulnerable plaque in postmortem studies. Twenty-three patients ...

    11. Novelties in cardiac imaging – Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)

      Novelties in cardiac imaging – Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)
      In order to improve our understanding of late stent thrombosis an dto access the individual risk of a patient or lesion, there is clinical need to assess vascular healing after stenting in vivo. We will discuss the potential and limitations of Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) for imaging of drug eluting stents (DES).
