    2. 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 ...

    3. 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 ...

    5. Investigation of Oddi sphincter structure by optical coherence tomography in patients with biliary-type 1 dysfunction: A pilot in vivo study

      Background: Type 1 sphincter of Oddi dysfunction is a clinical entity characterised by biliary-type pain, elevated liver biochemical tests, and common bile duct dilation. Sphincter fibrosis is a common finding in this type of dysfunction and may require in some cases a differential diagnosis with a malignant intra-papillary disease. Optical coherence tomography permits high-resolution, real-time imaging of the sphincter of Oddi microstructure by a probe inserted into the common bile ...

    6. Optical coherence tomography in pediatric patients: A feasible technique for diagnosing celiac disease in children with villous atrophy

      Background and aim: Celiac disease is a common condition with many atypical manifestations, where histology serves as the “gold standard” for diagnosis. A useful new technique, optical coherence tomography, can depict villous morphology in detail, using light waves. This study examined the correlation between the sensitivity and specificity of optical coherence tomography in pediatric patients undergoing esophago-gastro-duodenoscopy for the diagnosis of celiac disease. Materials and methods: A total of 134 ...

    7. Optical coherence tomography in detection of dysplasia and cancer of the gastrointestinal tract and bilio-pancreatic ductal system

      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is an optical imaging modality that performs high-resolution, cross-sectional, subsurface tomographic imaging of the microstructure of tissues. The physical principle of OCT is similar to that of B-mode ultrasound imaging, except that it uses infrared light waves rather than acoustic waves. The in vivo resolution is 10-25 times better (about 10 mm) than with high-frequency ultrasound imaging, but the depth of penetration is limited to 1-3 ...

    8. An Intrapancreatic Cholangiocarcinoma Detected With Optical Coherence Tomography During Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography

      An Intrapancreatic Cholangiocarcinoma Detected With Optical Coherence Tomography During Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography
      The combination of endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) with intraductal brushing and endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) with fine-needle aspiration (FNA) in the differential diagnosis between benign and malignant lesions gives a sensitivity and specificity up to 71% and 100%, respectively.1, 2 A 69-year old woman was referred to our institute for jaundice (conjugated bilirubin, 9.9 mg/dL). Transabdominal US and computed tomography scan revealed biliary system dilation, common bile duct ...

    9. Pilot study on the correlation of optical coherence tomography with histology in celiac disease and normal subjects

      Background and Aim: Celiac disease (CD) is a common condition but often it goes unrecognized because characteristic histopathological abnormalities must be found to confirm the diagnosis. A way is needed to select patients who need biopsy of the duodenal mucosa to detect CD. No data are currently available on the use of in vivo optical coherence tomography (OCT), during real-time endoscopic imaging, in the small intestine and, particularly, in the ...

  2. About Azienda Ospedaliera San Paolo

    Azienda Ospedaliera San Paolo

    Azienda Ospedaliera San Paolo - Polo Universitario has 623 beds in hospital including 93 in day hospital or day surgery with a catchment area of about 500,000 people and was recognized by the Ministry of Health as a "major National Hospital". Since 1987 he University, home of the Faculty of Medicine, Surgery and Dentistry hosting the teachings of the degree course in Medicine and Dentistry. The San Paolo Hospital is part of HPH (Health Promoting Hospital) of the World Health Organization projects with health promotion. Also is part of the service call center phone Health Milano "free for the citizen, which allows you to book visits and examinations, specialized equipment at various facilities in Milan with one phone call. Since 2000, the Hospital has achieved the Dipartimentalizzazione units complementary and mutually dependent then. The Department articulated the relationship between the manner of organization and management that allow, through shared rules and functional complexes to achieve goals not otherwise achievable, thus improving the technical quality of care while streamlining costs, overcoming organizational dysfunction, increasing the research and the link between teaching and service.
