    4. Radiofrequency ablation lesion assessment using optical coherence tomography – a proof‐of‐concept study

      Radiofrequency ablation lesion assessment using optical coherence tomography – a proof‐of‐concept study
      Background Radiofrequency catheter ablation (RFA) is an effective treatment for atrial fibrillation. However, ablation lesions are usually only assessed functionally. The immediate effect of RFA on the tissue is not directly visualized. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is an imaging technique that uses light to capture high‐resolution images with histology‐like quality. Therefore, it might be used for high‐precision imaging of ablation lesions. Methods and Results Radiofrequency ablation lesions ...

    6. Comparison of Optical Coherence Tomography-derived Minimal Lumen Area, Invasive Fractional Flow Reserve and FFRCT

      Comparison of Optical Coherence Tomography-derived Minimal Lumen Area, Invasive Fractional Flow Reserve and FFRCT
      Significant left main (LM) stenosis is associated with a poor prognosis, therefore, adequate judgement of the prognostic significance of LM stenosis is essential to improve patients' prognosis. Recently, fractional flow reserve (FFR) has become widespread practice and carries a Class Ia recommendation to assess functional significance of intermediate coronary stenosis in patients with stable angina. Intravascular ultrasound (IVUS)-derived minimum lumen area (MLA) represents an accurate measure to determine LM ...

    8. Changes in Coronary Plaque Composition in Patients With Acute Myocardial Infarction Treated With High-Intensity Statin Therapy (IBIS-4): A Serial Optical Coherence Tomography Study

      Changes in Coronary Plaque Composition in Patients With Acute Myocardial Infarction Treated With High-Intensity Statin Therapy (IBIS-4): A Serial Optical Coherence Tomography Study
      Objectives This study assessed changes in optical coherence tomography (OCT)-defined plaque composition in patients with ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) receiving high-intensity statin treatment. Background OCT is a high-resolution modality capable of measuring plaque characteristics including fibrous cap thickness (FCT) and macrophage infiltration. There is limited in vivo evidence regarding the effects of statins on OCT-defined coronary atheroma composition and no evidence in the context of STEMI. Methods In the ...

    9. Evaluation of vascular changes in intermediate uveitis and retinal vasculitis using swept-source wide-field optical coherence tomography angiography

      Evaluation of vascular changes in intermediate uveitis and retinal vasculitis using swept-source wide-field optical coherence tomography angiography
      Purpose To evaluate vascular changes in patients with intermediate uveitis with or without retinal vasculitis using swept-source wide-field optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA). Methods This is a prospective cross-sectional study. Consecutive patients with intermediate uveitis were evaluated using wide-field OCTA. Wide-field OCTA and en-face OCT images were analysed for the presence of capillary non-perfusion and reduced perfusion, disruption of ellipsoid zone, and abnormalities on en-face wide-field retinal thickness maps, respectively ...

    14. Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography (OCT-A) in Children (≥ 6 <14 Years of Age) (OCTAC)

      Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography (OCT-A) in Children (≥ 6 <14 Years of Age) (OCTAC)
      Optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) is a new non-invasive imaging technique that employs motion contrast imaging to high-resolution volumetric blood flow information. OCTA compares the decorrelation signal between sequential OCT b-scans taken at precisely the same cross-section in order to construct a map of blood flow. At present, level 1 evidence of the technology's clinical applications doesn't exist. The investigators plan to compare OCTA as an imaging modality ...

      Müller Glia Cell Activation in a Laser-induced Retinal Degeneration and Regeneration Model in Zebrafish
      A fascinating difference between teleost and mammals is the lifelong potential of the teleost retina for retinal neurogenesis and regeneration after severe damage. Investigating the regeneration pathways in zebrafish might bring new insights to develop innovative strategies for the treatment of retinal degenerative diseases in mammals. Herein, we focused on the induction of a focal lesion to the outer retina in adult zebrafish by means of a 532 nm diode ...
