      Mechanisms of Atherothrombosis and Vascular Response to Primary Percutaneous Coronary Intervention in Women Versus Men With Acute Myocardial Infarction : Results of the OCTAVIA (Optical Coherence Tomography Assessment of Gender Diversity in Primary Angiop
      Objectives This study sought to assess in vivo sex differences in the pathophysiology of ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) and vascular response to primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). Background There is no consensus on whether differences in the pathophysiology of STEMI and response to primary PCI between women and men reflect biological factors as opposed to differences in age. Methods In this prospective, multicenter study, 140 age-matched men and women ...

    3. Impact of different stent alloys on human vascular response to everolimus-eluting stent. An optical coherence tomography study. The OCTEVEREST

      Impact of different stent alloys on human vascular response to everolimus-eluting stent. An optical coherence tomography study. The OCTEVEREST
      Background: New generation drug-eluting stents (DES) incorporate thinner struts and novel alloys to improve clinical performance. Nevertheless, the impact of novel stent materials and designs on human vascular response to DES remains elusive. We sought to evaluate the in-vivo coronary artery response to platinum-chromium (PtCr) versus cobalt-chromium (CoCr) stents featuring the same durable polymer and antiproliferative drug by optical coherence tomography (OCT). Methods and Results: A total of 42 patients ...

    5. Serial Assessment of Coronary Artery Response to Paclitaxel-Eluting Stents Using Optical Coherence Tomography

      Serial Assessment of Coronary Artery Response to Paclitaxel-Eluting Stents Using Optical Coherence Tomography
      Background—The paucity of longitudinal, serial high-resolution imaging studies has limited our understanding of in vivo arterial response to drug-eluting stents. We sought to investigate the human coronary response to paclitaxel-eluting stent implantation, using serial optical coherence tomography assessments. Methods and Results—Thirty patients with at least 2 significant coronary lesions in different vessels were treated with a paclitaxel-eluting stent. The most severe stenosis (lesion A) was treated at the ...

    7. The impact of an eccentric intravascular ImageWire during coronary optical coherence tomography imaging

      The impact of an eccentric intravascular ImageWire during coronary optical coherence tomography imaging
      Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) provides high-resolution imaging which enables characterisation of atherosclerosis and vascular response to injury, but to ensure optimal analysis, one must realise potential sources of image distortion. We designed a series of analysesl, using coronary stents as a model, to investigate the influence of wire position on OCT-derived vascular images.

      Angiographic, IVUS and OCT evaluation of the long-term impact of coronary disease severity at the site of overlapping drug-eluting and bare metal stents: a substudy of the ODESSA trial
      Background A potentially adverse vascular response to overlapping drug eluting stents (DES) has been suggested in current research. Objective To evaluate the impact of baseline disease severity at the site of stent overlap. Methods and results This is a substudy of ODESSA, a prospective, randomised controlled trial designed to evaluate healing of overlapping stents. 71/77 patients with a total of 86 overlapping stents were studied: 25 sirolimus, 24 paclitaxel ...

    14. Assessment of Heterogeneity of Strut-Level Neointima Hyperplasia After Stent Implantation by Optical Coherence Tomography

      Background: Optical coherence tomography (OCT) permits a highly accurate NIH assessment at each strut level within a cross-section. The aim of this study is to evaluate heterogeneity of NIH among different stents. Methods: Patients enrolled in ODESSA were assessed. ODESSA was a prospective randomized trial designed to evaluate strut coverage of overlapped (OLP) vs. non-OLP stent segments for the treatment of de-novo, native coronary artery stenosis with four different stent ...

    15. Unhealed Plaque Ruptures After Stenting in Acute Myocardial Infarction Assessed by Intracoronary Optical Coherence Tomography: Incidence, Predictors, and Clinical Implication

      Backgrounds: Non healing after stenting a ruptured thin capped fibroatheroma in acute myocardial infarction (AMI) has been suggested to be a possible cause of late stent thrombosis. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) provides detailed information of ruptured plaques and stent strut coverage. We used OCT to assess the incidence, predictors, and implications of residual plaque rupture after stenting in AMI. Methods: The HORIZONS-AMI trial was a prospective, multicenter, dual arm factorial ...
