      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 ...

    3. Simple versus complex approaches to treating coronary bifurcation lesions: direct assessment of stent strut apposition by optical coherence tomography.

      Simple versus complex approaches to treating coronary bifurcation lesions: direct assessment of stent strut apposition by optical coherence tomography.
      Introduction and objectives. Stenting of coronary bifurcation lesions carries an increased risk of stent deformation and malapposition. Anatomical and pathological observations indicate that the high stent thrombosis rate in bifurcations is due to malapposition of stent struts. Methods. Strut apposition was assessed with optical coherence tomography (OCT) in bifurcation lesions treated either using the simple technique of stent implantation in the main vessel only or a complex technique (i.e ...

    5. Optical coherence tomography assessment of a new dedicated bifurcation stent

      Optical coherence tomography assessment of a new dedicated bifurcation stent
      Dedicated bifurcation stents should facilitate deployment and improved coverage of bifurcational lesions. We used optical coherence tomography (OCT) to assess bifurcation lesions treated with a dedicated stent implanted in the side branch (SB) in conjunction with drug eluting stents in the main vessel (MV) in a culotte-like fashion.

    6. 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. Do unapposed stent struts endothelialise? In vivo demonstration with optical coherence tomography

      Although drug-eluting stents have dramatically reduced restenosis rates after percutaneous coronary intervention, concerns remain with regard to the potential risk of stent thrombosis. For bifurcation lesions, a stent thrombosis rate up to 3.6% has been reported, and incomplete stent apposition has been proposed as a possible mechanism. We report the case of a 52-year-old man

    10. Multi-modality intra-coronary plaque characterization: A pilot study☆

      Background The risk of rupture and subsequent thrombosis of the atherosclerotic coronary plaques is related to the presence of necrotic core with high lipid content. We conducted an exploratory pilot trial to compare the capability for lipid tissue detection using four intra-coronary diagnostic techniques: greyscale intravascular ultrasound (GS IVUS), IVUS radiofrequency data (IVUS RFD) analysis, optical coherence tomography (OCT) and intravascular magnetic resonance spectroscopy (IVMR). Methods Twenty-four matched target plaques ...

    12. In-vivo characterisation of coronary atherosclerosis with optical coherence tomography

      In-vivo characterisation of coronary atherosclerosis with optical coherence tomography
      The burden of atherosclerosis has triggered intense interest in the study of “vulnerable” plaques at high risk of rupture. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) has recently contributed to the in-vivo visualisation of plaque, providing unique insights into the atherosclerotic process, previously only attainable through postmortem examination. This technique uses near infrared light and an optical imaging wire attached to a patient interface unit with a pullback speed of up to 3 ...

      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).
