    1. Frontiers in cardiac imaging: diagnostic and prognostic validity and safety

      Frontiers in cardiac imaging: diagnostic and prognostic validity and safety
      The heart is a hidden organ and was not accessible for clinicians until the discovery of the stethoscope by Ren Laennec in 1821.1Thereafter, there was little progress until the discovery of radiation by Wilhelm Rntgen in 18982and its application for chest X-rays and later angiography. In the 1970s, echocardiography was developed followed by magnetic resonance imaging or MRI3,4and computed tomography or CT.5These imaging tools have revolutionized the ...

    2. The REMEDEE-OCT Study : An Evaluation of the Bioengineered COMBO Dual-Therapy CD34 Antibody–Covered Sirolimus-Eluting Coronary Stent Compared With a Cobalt-Chromium Everolimus-Eluting Stent in Patients With Acute Coronary Syndromes: Insights From Optical

      The REMEDEE-OCT Study : An Evaluation of the Bioengineered COMBO Dual-Therapy CD34 Antibody–Covered Sirolimus-Eluting Coronary Stent Compared With a Cobalt-Chromium Everolimus-Eluting Stent in Patients With Acute Coronary Syndromes: Insights From Optical
      Objectives The aim of the present study was to evaluate vascular healing of the bioengineered COMBO Dual Therapy Stent compared with a cobalt-chromium (CoCr) everolimus-eluting stent (EES) as assessed by optical coherence tomography in patients with acute coronary syndromes. Background CD34+ cells promote endothelial repair after vascular injury. The bioengineered COMBO Dual Therapy Stent combines CD34+ cellcapturing technology with abluminal sirolimus release, but more data from clinical studies evaluating the ...

    3. 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 ...

      The bumpy road to evidence: why many research findings are lost in translation
      We have come a long way When, more than 2500 years ago, Thales of Milet (624547 BC) claimed that nature was ruled by laws and not by gods, he changed the world. 1 Such a concept allowed for the discovery and mathematical proof of impersonal causation of what, until then, had been a mystery ruled by unpredictable gods. Indeed, ever since then the understanding of naturetoday we would call it ...

    6. Optical coherence tomography to reveal vascular lesions after catheter-based renal nerve ablation with a novel multi-electrode EnligHTNTM system

      Optical coherence tomography to reveal vascular lesions after catheter-based renal nerve ablation with a novel multi-electrode EnligHTNTM system
      A 72-year-old female with a history of sleep apnoea syndrome was referred to the Andreas Gruentzig Catheterisation Laboratories for catheter-based renal nerve ablation (RNA) due to drug-resistant, uncontrolled hypertension. After intravenously loading with aspirin, the RNA was obtained using the first generation multi-electrode EnligHTNTM system (St. Jude Medical, Westford, MA, USA) delivering 8 ablation runs on both the left and the right renal artery. Before and after the RNA procedure ...

      Geometrically correct three-dimensional optical coherence tomography: first self-expanding bifurcation stent evaluation
      A 78-year-old female was referred to the Andreas Gruentzig Catheterization Laboratories suffering from angina pain CCS II. Coronary angiography demonstrated a bifurcation lesion in the middle left anterior descending and the first diagonal branch ( Panel A ). Based on these findings, percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) was performed with implantation of a
