    2. Clinical outcomes of calcified nodules detected by optical coherence tomography

      Clinical outcomes of calcified nodules detected by optical coherence tomography
      Aims: The goal of the present post hoc analysis of the CLIMA registry was to establish the relationship between calcified nodules (CNs) with (CND) or without (CNWD) disruption of the superficial intimal fibrous layer and one-year occurrence of target lesion myocardial infarction (MI) and/or cardiac death. Methods and results: CND and CNWD were identified based on the presence or absence of superficial irregularities indicative of disruption of the intimal ...

    3. Prevalence and quantitative assessment of macrophages in coronary plaques

      Prevalence and quantitative assessment of macrophages in coronary plaques
      Although optical coherence tomography (OCT) proved to be able to identify macrophage clusters, there are no available data on the possibility to obtain reproducible measurements of their circumferential extension and location. The purpose of the present post-hoc analysis of the CLIMA study was to revise the clinical and demographic variables of patients having coronary plaques with macrophages and to investigate the reproducibility of their quantitative assessment. A total of 577 ...

    5. Cracking the Plaque With Coronary Lithotripsy: Mechanistic Insights From Optical Coherence Tomography

      Cracking the Plaque With Coronary Lithotripsy: Mechanistic Insights From Optical Coherence Tomography
      A 38-year-old male underwent successful recanalization of a chronic total occlusion (CTO) in a bare-metal stented segment of the mid right coronary artery (RCA) via retrograde approach. However, the in-stent restenotic lesion was undilatable despite pressure up to 35 atm with non-compliant (NC) OPN balloons (SIS Medical AG). The patient was discharged with plans for a future attempt. Six months later, coronary angiography revealed patency of the RCA with residual ...

    6. Prospective evaluation of drug eluting self‐apposing stent for the treatment of unprotected left main coronary artery disease: 1‐year results of the TRUNC study

      Prospective evaluation of drug eluting self‐apposing stent for the treatment of unprotected left main coronary artery disease: 1‐year results of the TRUNC study
      Objectives To assess long‐term safety and efficacy of the Xposition S self‐apposing stent in the treatment of unprotected left main coronary artery (ULMCA) disease. Background Percutaneous intervention with stents has emerged as a valid alternative to surgical revascularization to treat ULMCA disease. Conventional balloon‐expandable stents face technical challenges, particularly in large left main diameter requiring extensive optimization and side branch access in distal bifurcation. Xposition S allows ...

      Relationship between coronary plaque morphology of the left anterior descending artery and 12 months clinical outcome: the CLIMA study
      Aims The CLIMA study, on the relationship between c oronary p l aque morphology of the left anter i or descending artery and twelve m onths clinic a l outcome, was designed to explore the predictive value of multiple high-risk plaque features in the same coronary lesion [minimum lumen area (MLA), fibrous cap thickness (FCT), lipid arc circumferential extension, and presence of optical coherence tomography (OCT)-defined macrophages] as detected ...

      Long-term consequences of optical coherence tomography findings during percutaneous coronary intervention: the centro per la lotta contro l\'infarto - optimization of percutaneous coronary intervention (cli-opci) late study
      Aims: The role of intra-procedural Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) on long-term clinical outcome of percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI) remains undefined. Methods and results: In the context of the multicenter Centro per la Lotta contro lInfarto-Optimisation of Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (CLI-OPCI) registry, we compared long-term PCI outcome of 1211 patients from 13 independent OCT-experienced centers according to end-procedural OCT findings. OCT assessment revealed suboptimal stent implantation in 30.9% of lesions ...

      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 ...

      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 ...

      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 ...

      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 ...

      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 ...
