    2. Clinical impact of optical coherence tomography findings on culprit plaque in acute coronary syndrome: The OCT‐FORMIDABLE study registry

      Clinical impact of optical coherence tomography findings on culprit plaque in acute coronary syndrome: The OCT‐FORMIDABLE study registry
      Background Aim of this study was to evaluate the clinical impact of the culprit plaque features assessed by optical coherence tomography (OCT) in patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS). Methods The OCT‐FORMIDABLE register enrolled retrospectively all consecutive patients who perform OCT on culprit plaque in patients with ACS in nine European centres. The primary endpoint was the prevalence of culprit plaque rupture (CPR) in patients experiencing major adverse cardiovascular ...

    5. Clinical Outcomes Following Intravascular Imaging-Guided Versus Coronary Angiography–Guided Percutaneous Coronary Intervention With Stent Implantation

      Clinical Outcomes Following Intravascular Imaging-Guided Versus Coronary Angiography–Guided Percutaneous Coronary Intervention With Stent Implantation
      Objectives The authors sought to explore the comparative clinical efficacy of different imaging modalities for guiding percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI). Background Coronary angiography (CA) is the standard imaging modality for intraprocedural guidance of PCI. Intracoronary imaging techniques, including intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) and optical coherence tomography (OCT), can overcome some limitations of CA. Methods Comprehensive hierarchical Bayesian network meta-analysis of randomized clinical trials and adjusted observational studies comparing clinical outcomes of ...

    6. Vascular response and healing profile of everolimus-eluting bioresorbable vascular scaffolds for percutaneous treatment of chronic total coronary occlusions: A one-year optical coherence tomography analysis from the GHOST-CTO registry

      Vascular response and healing profile of everolimus-eluting bioresorbable vascular scaffolds for percutaneous treatment of chronic total coronary occlusions: A one-year optical coherence tomography analysis from the GHOST-CTO registry
      Background Bioresorbable vascular scaffolds (BVS) have been heralded with potential benefits that are especially desired in long lesions, including chronic total occlusions (CTOs). Procedural feasibility and mid-term outcomes of BVS in CTOs have been reported. However, there is still a paucity of data regarding the vascular and healing response to BVS in CTOs evaluated by optical coherence tomography (OCT). Methods This study included prospectively 21 patients who had a CTO ...

    7. Culprit plaque characteristics in younger versus older patients with acute coronary syndromes: An optical coherence tomography study from the FORMIDABLE registry

      Culprit plaque characteristics in younger versus older patients with acute coronary syndromes: An optical coherence tomography study from the FORMIDABLE registry
      Objectives Culprit plaque characteristics in young patients who experience an Acute Coronary Syndrome (ACS) evaluated by OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography) have to be defined. The OCT-FORMIDABLE is a multicentre retrospective registry enrolling consecutive patients with ACS who performed OCT in 9 European centres. Methods Patients were divided in two groups according to age at presentation: juvenile-ACS (age50 years) and not juvenile-ACS (age50 years). Primary end-point was the prevalence of plaque ...

    8. Effects of statins on plaque rupture assessed by optical coherence tomography in patients presenting with acute coronary syndromes: insights from the optical coherence tomography (OCT)-FORMIDABLE registry

      Effects of statins on plaque rupture assessed by optical coherence tomography in patients presenting with acute coronary syndromes: insights from the optical coherence tomography (OCT)-FORMIDABLE registry
      Aims Chronic pre-treatment with statins may reduce mortality and morbidity in patients experiencing acute coronary syndromes (ACS), but mechanisms accounting for these findings are not completely understood. Methods and results The optical coherence tomography (OCT)-Formidable registry retrospectively enrolled 285 consecutive patients with ACS undergoing OCT in 9 European centres. Mean age was 60.412.8 years, 148 (51.9%) patients had hyperlipemia, 45 (15.8%) diabetes mellitus and 142 ...

    9. Optical coherence tomography compared with fractional flow reserve guided approach in acute coronary syndromes: A propensity matched analysis

      Optical coherence tomography compared with fractional flow reserve guided approach in acute coronary syndromes: A propensity matched analysis
      Aim To compare in patients with ACS (Acute Coronary Syndromes) a PCI (Percutaneous Coronary Intervention) approach based on FFR (Fractional Flow Reserve) vs. one based on OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography). Methods and Results Consecutive patients admitted for ACS and treated with a PCI approach based on OCT or on FFR (recruited in two different studies) were compared and matched with propensity score analysis. Target Lesion revascularization (TLR) was the primary ...

    10. Late self-apposition with one-year persisting uncoverage of malapposed bioresorbable polymeric struts

      Late self-apposition with one-year persisting uncoverage of malapposed bioresorbable polymeric struts
      This case reports the fate of a post-procedural incomplete struts apposition (ISA) of an Absorb bioresorbable scaffold. The 12-month optical coherence tomography showed the complete ISA resolution, apparently mediated by the passive reclining of struts from the lumen to the vessel wall. The lastly apposed struts appeared still uncovered, persisting a potential procedure-related mechanism of very late scaffold thrombosis.

    12. Embolization of Fractured Bioresorbable Scaffold Struts Insights From 2- and 3-Dimensional Optical Coherence Tomography

      Embolization of Fractured Bioresorbable Scaffold Struts Insights From 2- and 3-Dimensional Optical Coherence Tomography
      A 58-year-old diabetic man underwent implantation of 3 overlapping Absorb bioresorbable vascular scaffolds (BVS) (2.5/28, 2.5/28, and 3.0/28 mm) (Abbott Vascular, Santa Clara, California) in a heavily calcified left anterior descending artery stenosis. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) revealed multiple fractures of the 3.0/28 BVS, leading to in-scaffold implantation of a zotarolimus-eluting stent (ZES) ( Figures 1A and 1B ). The 4-month angiography showed a ...

      Clinical Impact of OCT Findings During PCI: The CLI-OPCI II Study
      Objectives The goal of this study was to assess the clinical impact of optical coherence tomography (OCT) findings during percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). Background OCT provides unprecedented high-definition visualization of plaque/stent structures during PCI; however, the impact of OCT findings on outcome remains undefined. Methods In the context of the multicenter CLI-OPCI (Centro per la Lotta contro lInfartoOptimisation of Percutaneous Coronary Intervention) registry, we retrospectively analyzed patients undergoing end-procedural ...
