      Lower Extremity Revascularization Using Optical Coherence Tomography–Guided Directional Atherectomy: Final Results of the EValuatIon of the PantheriS OptIcal COherence Tomography ImagiNg Atherectomy System for Use in the Peripheral Vasculature (VISION) St
      Purpose: To evaluate the safety and efficacy of a novel optical coherence tomography (OCT)guided atherectomy catheter in treating patients with symptomatic femoropopliteal disease. Methods: The VISION trial ( ClinicalTrials.gov identifier NCT01937351) was a single-arm, multicenter, global investigational device exemption study enrolling 158 subjects (mean age 67.210.5 years; 87 men) across 20 participating sites. In this cohort, 198 lesions were treated with an average length of 5340 mm ...

    6. Atherectomy catheters devices having multi-channel bushings

      Atherectomy catheters devices having multi-channel bushings
      Atherectomy catheters and methods of using them are described herein. In particular, described herein are optical coherence tomography (OCT) catheters that may include a distal tip that can be deflected away from the long axis of the device using a multi-channel bushing. The bushing may include at a hinge point that is offset (e.g., located on a side of the elongate body near the distal end of the elongate ...

    7. Optical coherence tomography with graded index fiber for biological imaging

      Optical coherence tomography with graded index fiber for biological imaging
      A system for optical coherence tomography includes a source of optical radiation, an optical fiber, and a graded index fiber attached to a distal end of the optical fiber. The optical fiber and the graded index fiber are together configured to provide a common path for optical radiation reflected from a reference interface at a distal end of the graded index fiber and from a target.
