    2. “Bringing on the light” in a complex clinical scenario: Optical coherence tomography–guided discontinuation of antiplatelet therapy in cancer patients with coronary artery disease (PROTECT-OCT registry)

      “Bringing on the light” in a complex clinical scenario: Optical coherence tomography–guided discontinuation of antiplatelet therapy in cancer patients with coronary artery disease (PROTECT-OCT registry)
      Background Cancer patients with recently placed drug-eluting stents (DESs) often require premature dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) discontinuation for cancer-related procedures. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) can identify risk factors for stent thrombosis such as stent malapposition, incomplete strut coverage and in-stent restenosis and may help guide discontinuation of DAPT. Methods We conducted a single-center prospective study in cancer patients with recently placed (1-12 months) DES who required premature DAPT discontinuation. Patients ...

    4. Comparison of scanning electron microscopy and optical coherence tomography (OCT) for imaging of coronary bifurcation stents

      Comparison of scanning electron microscopy and optical coherence tomography (OCT) for imaging of coronary bifurcation stents
      Background: Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a new intracoronary imaging modality that has excellent resolution and image quality and has been used to image neointimal coverage after stent implantation. OCT has been compared to histologic, intravascular ultrasound, and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) studies. However, OCT has not been compared with SEM for imaging stent coverage over side branches. Objective: The aim of this study was to compare OCT with scanning ...

    5. Do we have a future with transcatheter adventitial delivery of stem cells?

      Do we have a future with transcatheter adventitial delivery of stem cells?
      Critically evaluating the methodology of the adventitial delivery of stem cells, some specific options should be underlined. Adventitia as the most superficial layer, consisting of connective tissue has to be distinguished of perivascular tissues. By strict definition, an adventitia is the outermost connective tissue covering any organ, or vessel. The adventitial delivery of stem cells with a 1 mm micro-needle means a delivery to superficial so called pericardial myocardium, perivascular ...

    6. New Imaging Tool Shows Blocked Arteries 10 Times More Clearly than Ultrasound

      New Imaging Tool Shows Blocked Arteries 10 Times More Clearly than Ultrasound
      Cardiologists at Texas Heart Institute at St. Luke’s Episcopal Hospital recently became the first in Houston to use a new imaging tool that shows unprecedented detail of arteries, allowing interventional cardiologists to make more informed decisions when assessing and treating heart arterial blockages. The cutting-edge technology, known as Optical Coherence Tomography, or OCT, allows physicians to be extremely precise when performing such heart procedures as placing a stent to ...
