    3. Intracoronary Optical Coherence Tomography for the Assessment of In-Stent Restenosis

      Intracoronary Optical Coherence Tomography for the Assessment of In-Stent Restenosis
      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a novel imaging modality in interventional cardiology. With its clear image quality, it has attracted considerable attention as a tool to accurately evaluate atherosclerosis and coronary stents in vivo. It has a 10-fold higher resolution compared to intravascular ultrasound and utilises near-infrared light that requires temporary blood clearance during image acquisition. We present a case of in-stent restenosis in a patient five years after percutaneous ...

    4. 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.

    5. The Use of Intracoronary Optical Coherence Tomography in Interventional Cardiology: Safety, Feasibility and Clinical Applications (Thesis)

      The Use of Intracoronary Optical Coherence Tomography in Interventional Cardiology: Safety, Feasibility and Clinical Applications (Thesis)
      Interventional cardiology has witnessed tremendous change since 1977 when Andreas Gruentzig successfully performed the first balloon angioplasty. Whereas initial concerns revolved around maintaining vessel patency with issues of recoil and restenosis, the introduction of stents changed the landscape forever. Inherent with their use, stents, and, more specifically, drugeluting stents (DES), have become central to improved patient outcomes but, at some cost. Catastrophic, yet fortunately still rare complications such as stent ...

    6. Current and future developments in intracoronary optical coherence tomography imaging

      Current and future developments in intracoronary optical coherence tomography imaging
      Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) has become a key intracoronary imaging modality able to tranerse some of the limitations of angiography and intravascular ultrasound. In vivo imaging with high resolution (around 15 um) has given unique insights into not only atherosclerotic plaque, but also to the understanding of tissue responses underlying stent implantation.

    8. 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 ...

    9. 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).
