      Lamina Cribrosa-Related Parameters Assessed by Optical Coherence Tomography for Prediction of Future Glaucoma Progression   Read More: http://informahealthcare.com/doi/abs/10.3109/02713683.2015.1052519
      Purpose : To evaluate the value of lamina cribrosa (LC)-related parameters assessed by optical coherence tomography (OCT) in the future prediction of glaucomatous progression. Methods : Glaucoma or glaucoma suspect eyes were followed up for more than 2 years. Glaucoma progression was defined by optic disc/retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) photographic assessment or serial visual field exams. LC thickness, anterior LC distance (ALD) and prelaminar tissue thicknesses were determined with ...

    3. Incidence and Clinical Significance of Post-Stent OCT Findings: One Year Follow-Up Study From a Multicenter Registry

      Incidence and Clinical Significance of Post-Stent OCT Findings: One Year Follow-Up Study From a Multicenter Registry
      Background Optical coherence tomography (OCT) was recently introduced to optimize percutaneous coronary intervention. However, the exact incidence and significance of post-stent OCT findings are unknown. Methods and Results A total of 900 lesions treated with 1001 stents in 786 patients who had post-procedure OCT imaging were analyzed to evaluate the incidence of post-stent OCT findings and to identify the OCT predictors for device-oriented clinical endpoints (DoCE), including cardiac death, target ...

    4. Comparison of Neoatherosclerosis and Neovascularization Between Patients With and Without Diabetes : An Optical Coherence Tomography Study

      Comparison of Neoatherosclerosis and Neovascularization Between Patients With and Without Diabetes : An Optical Coherence Tomography Study
      Objectives This study aimed to investigate the characteristics of neoatherosclerosis (NA) in patients with diabetes mellitus (DM) after drug-eluting stent (DES) implantation using optical coherence tomography. Background NA is an important substrate for stent failure. In vivo NA characteristics in DM patients have not been investigated. Methods A total of 397 patients with 452 DES who underwent follow-up optical coherence tomography examination after DES implantation were enrolled. Characteristics of NA ...

    6. A Hierarchical Cluster Analysis of Normal-Tension Glaucoma Using Spectral-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography Parameters

      A Hierarchical Cluster Analysis of Normal-Tension Glaucoma Using Spectral-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography Parameters
      Purpose: Normal-tension glaucoma (NTG) is a heterogenous disease, and there is still controversy about subclassifications of this disorder. On the basis of spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT), we subdivided NTG with hierarchical cluster analysis using optic nerve head (ONH) parameters and retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thicknesses. Patients and Methods: A total of 200 eyes of 200 NTG patients between March 2011 and June 2012 underwent SD-OCT scans to measure ...

    8. Usefulness of optical coherence tomography to detect central serous chorioretinopathy in monkeys

      Usefulness of optical coherence tomography to detect central serous chorioretinopathy in monkeys
      Many systemic drugs can induce ocular toxicity and several ocular side-effects have been identified in clinical studies. However, it is difficult to detect ocular toxicity in preclinical studies because of the lack of appropriate evaluation methods. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is useful because it can provide real-time images throughout a study period, whereas histopathology only provides images of sacrificed animals. Using OCT alongside histopathology, attempts were made to find effective ...

    9. Pancoronary Plaque Vulnerability in Patients with Acute Coronary Syndrome and Ruptured Culprit Plaque: A Three-Vessel Optical Coherence Tomography Study

      Pancoronary Plaque Vulnerability in Patients with Acute Coronary Syndrome and Ruptured Culprit Plaque: A Three-Vessel Optical Coherence Tomography Study
      Background Recent studies described different clinical and underlying plaque characteristics between patients with and without plaque rupture presenting with acute coronary syndrome (ACS). In light of the systemic nature of atherosclerosis, we hypothesized that non-culprit plaques might also express different morphological features in these two groups of patients. Methods Thirty-eight patients with ACS who underwent 3-vessel optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging were identified from the Massachusetts General Hospital OCT Registry ...

    10. Comparison of OCT Measurements between High Myopic and Low Myopic Children

      Comparison of OCT Measurements between High Myopic and Low Myopic Children
      Purpose: To compare the peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness, macular thickness, and total macular volume of high myopic eyes with those of low myopic eyes in children younger than 10 years. Methods: Prospective, randomized, comparative study. Time-domain optical coherence tomography (OCT) (Stratus OCT; Carl Zeiss Meditec) was performed on 15 children with high myopia (refractive error greater than or equal to -6.0 diopters [D], group 1) and ...

    11. Features of Coronary Plaque in Patients with Metabolic Syndrome and Diabetes Mellitus Assessed by 3-vessel Optical Coherence Tomography

      Features of Coronary Plaque in Patients with Metabolic Syndrome and Diabetes Mellitus Assessed by 3-vessel Optical Coherence Tomography
      Background The pathophysiologic basis for the association between metabolic syndrome (MetS) and coronary artery disease is not well understood. We sought to characterize coronary plaques in patients with MetS using optical coherence tomography (OCT). Methods and Results We identified 451 coronary plaques from 171 subjects who underwent OCT imaging in three coronary arteries. Subjects were divided into 3 groups: diabetes mellitus (DM, n=77), MetS (n=35), and a control ...

  2. About Asan Medical Center

    Asan Medical Center

    Asan Medical Center Korea’s largest tertiary referral hospital with 2,189 beds, was founded in 1989 by the late Chairman Chung_Ju-yung of Asan Foundation, with the philanthropic principles of meeting the growing demand for specialized treatments to the under privileged in society. Since then, this patient-oriented hospital has been caring more than 8,300 outpatients, 2,080 inpatients, and 180 emergency patients, while successfully performing 195 complex surgical operations on a daily basis. When AMC opens a 20-story new building in 2008, this hospital will be equipped with 3,000 beds and could offer upgraded health care services.
