    5. 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.

    7. 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 ...

    8. Clinical Impact of OCT Findings During PCI: The CLI-OPCI II Study

      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 ...

    10. Cyphering the Mechanism of Late Failure of Bioresorbable Vascular Scaffolds in Percutaneous Coronary Intervention of the Left Main Coronary Artery

      Cyphering the Mechanism of Late Failure of Bioresorbable Vascular Scaffolds in Percutaneous Coronary Intervention of the Left Main Coronary Artery
      A 48-year-old woman with history of multiple percutaneous coronary interventions and bypass grafting on the left anterior descending coronary artery presented with unstable angina. Coronary angiography showed a patent left internal mammary artery and de novo critical stenoses of the mid-shaft left main and the unprotected left circumflex coronary artery (LCX). Both lesions were treated with 2 nonoverlapping bioresorbable vascular scaffolds (BVS) (Absorb, Abbott Vascular, Santa Clara, California) 3.5 ...

    11. One-year coverage by optical coherence tomography of a bioresorbable scaffold neocarina: is it safe to discontinue dual antiplatelet therapy?

      One-year coverage by optical coherence tomography of a bioresorbable scaffold neocarina: is it safe to discontinue dual antiplatelet therapy?
      This is a case reporting on the 1-year coverage status of side-branch bioresorbable vascular scaffold (BVS) struts protruding in main vessels. The 1-year optical coherence tomography demonstrated a tissue neocarina forming over protruding BVS struts, although the coverage was widely inhomogeneous and perhaps still incomplete in some portions, thus leading to cautious extension of dual antiplatelet therapy beyond one year.

      Optical Coherence Tomography Assessment of Late Intra-Scaffold Dissection - A New Challenge of Bioresorbable Scaffolds
      A 48-year-old man was admitted because of a nonST-segment elevation myocardial infarction. Fifteen months previously, he had received a 3.0 28-mm bioresorbable vascular scaffold (BVS) (Absorb, Abbott Vascular, Santa Clara, California) in the mid-left anterior descending coronary artery for stable angina. Coronary angiography showed a focal in-scaffold restenosis (Figure 1 ). Optical coherence tomography (OCT) (Ilumien, St. Jude Medical, Saint Paul, Minnesota) revealed a heterogeneous pattern consisting of neointimal hyperplasia ...

    13. Optical coherence tomography for coronary imaging

      Optical coherence tomography for coronary imaging
      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a novel invasive imaging technique that produces high resolution intracoronary images. Its general principle of operation is similar to IVUS, however OCT uses infrared light, not ultrasound. In the last years, the need for more precise information regarding coronary artery disease to achieve optimal treatment has seen intravascular imaging becoming an area of primary importance in interventional cardiology. OCT in this area has grown and ...
