      In vivo tissue characterization of human atherosclerotic plaques by optical coherence tomography: A directional coronary atherectomy study with histopathologic confirmation
      Background The histopathological validation of optical coherence tomography (OCT) in visualizing atherosclerotic plaques has been reported only in ex vivo studies. We sought to evaluate the accuracy of OCT in tissue characterization in vivo . Methods and results A total of 25 patients with stable angina pectoris who underwent directional coronary atherectomy (DCA) were included in the investigation, whereby OCT was performed before and after a single debulking. The debulked region ...

    3. Impact on Optical Coherence Tomographic Coronary Findings of Fluvastatin Alone versus Fluvastatin+ Ezetimibe

      Impact on Optical Coherence Tomographic Coronary Findings of Fluvastatin Alone versus Fluvastatin+ Ezetimibe
      Although lipid lowering therapy by statin and ezetimibe has been reported to provide greater reduction in low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) levels than statin monotherapy, the effect of supplemental therapy on plaque stabilization is yet to be fully elucidated. Cap thickness of fibroatheroma evaluated by Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a major determinant of vulnerable plaque. The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the effect of ezetimibe in addition ...

    5. Morphological differences of tissue characteristics between early, late, and very late restenosis lesions after first generation drug-eluting stent implantation: an optical coherence tomography study

      Morphological differences of tissue characteristics between early, late, and very late restenosis lesions after first generation drug-eluting stent implantation: an optical coherence tomography study
      Aims Restenosis of drug-eluting stents (DESs) might be different from that of bare metal stent restenosis in diverse ways including mechanisms and time course; however, these have not been fully examined. To gain insight into the mechanisms and time course of DES restenosis, we evaluated the characteristics of restenotic lesions of first generation DES using optical coherence tomography (OCT). Methods and results We compared the morphological characteristics of early in-stent ...

    7. The impact of epicardial fat volume on coronary plaque vulnerability: insight from optical coherence tomography analysis

      The impact of epicardial fat volume on coronary plaque vulnerability: insight from optical coherence tomography analysis
      Aims Epicardial fat volume (EFV) has been implicated in coronary artery disease. Relationship between EFV and coronary plaque vulnerability has not been elucidated. The aim of this study was to investigate the association of EFV with coronary plaque vulnerability by using optical coherence tomography (OCT). Methods and results We enrolled 117 patients who underwent multislice computed tomography (MSCT) and OCT. EFV was quantified on MSCT. Patients were categorized according to ...

    10. Comparison of In Vivo Assessment of Vulnerable Plaque by 64-Slice Multislice Computed Tomography Versus Optical Coherence Tomography

      Comparison of In Vivo Assessment of Vulnerable Plaque by 64-Slice Multislice Computed Tomography Versus Optical Coherence Tomography
      The aim of this study was to investigate the possibility of 64-slice multislice computed tomography (MSCT) to detect vulnerable plaque derived by optical coherence tomography. From September 2007 through December 2009, 122 lesions in 81 patients were evaluated by 64-slice MSCT and optical coherence tomography. Based on optical coherence tomographic findings, lesions were classified as thin-capped fibroatheroma (TCFA; n = 37) and non-TCFA (n = 85). Mean computed tomographic density value of ...
