    3. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) strut-level analysis of drug-eluting stents (DES) in human coronary bifurcations

      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) strut-level analysis of drug-eluting stents (DES) in human coronary bifurcations
      Aims: We sought to evaluate the vascular response of stent struts deployed in bifurcation segments using optical coherence tomography (OCT). Conclusions: This study demonstrates a variable patter of strut coverage in the bifurcation among stent technologies, with a high percentage of PES floating struts remaining uncovered at 6-month follow-up.

    5. Assessment of Heterogeneity of Strut-Level Neointima Hyperplasia After Stent Implantation by Optical Coherence Tomography

      Background: Optical coherence tomography (OCT) permits a highly accurate NIH assessment at each strut level within a cross-section. The aim of this study is to evaluate heterogeneity of NIH among different stents. Methods: Patients enrolled in ODESSA were assessed. ODESSA was a prospective randomized trial designed to evaluate strut coverage of overlapped (OLP) vs. non-OLP stent segments for the treatment of de-novo, native coronary artery stenosis with four different stent ...

    6. Unhealed Plaque Ruptures After Stenting in Acute Myocardial Infarction Assessed by Intracoronary Optical Coherence Tomography: Incidence, Predictors, and Clinical Implication

      Backgrounds: Non healing after stenting a ruptured thin capped fibroatheroma in acute myocardial infarction (AMI) has been suggested to be a possible cause of late stent thrombosis. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) provides detailed information of ruptured plaques and stent strut coverage. We used OCT to assess the incidence, predictors, and implications of residual plaque rupture after stenting in AMI. Methods: The HORIZONS-AMI trial was a prospective, multicenter, dual arm factorial ...

    7. Expert review document on methodology, terminology, and clinical applications of optical coherence tomography: physical principles, methodology of image acquisition, and clinical application for assessment of coronary arteries and atherosclerosis

      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a novel intravascular imaging modality, based on infrared light emission, that enables a high resolution arterial wall imaging, in the range of 1020 microns. This feature of OCT allows the visualization of specific components of the atherosclerotic plaques. The aim of the present Expert Review Document is to address the methodology, terminology and clinical applications of OCT for qualitative and quantitative assessment of coronary arteries ...

      ODESSA Trial Looks Inside Drug-Eluting Stents With Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)
      October 20, 2008 / Washington, DC -- A new imaging technology, Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) popped up in a number of presentations and evening symposia at this year's Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics meeting (TCT 2008). OCT is very new: one of the two currently available systems was first used in humans only five months ago. OCT image from ODESSA Trial, showing covered and uncovered struts of a drug-eluting stent OCT is a ...

    1. Imaging is more accurate, helps guide decisions and facilitates tailored therapy, especially in younger heart attack patients who more frequently have plaque erosion or non-atherosclerotic coronary artery disease.
      In Expert consensus published on use of imaging to guide heart attack treatment
    2. OCT technology has become increasingly important to help diagnose and treat patients with coronary artery disease. The ILUMIEN OPTIS system is a significant advancement in intravascular imaging technology allowing physicians to comprehensively assess more vessel in less time and more easily plan their PCI procedure. The three-dimensional format of the ILUMIEN OPTIS system provides a more true-to-life perspective of the arteries, which allows for individual decision making and precise guidance of stent placement to optimize coronary interventions.

    3. We are doing a high number of off-label-indication cases, patients and lesions are becoming more and more complex, with more calcification and much less guarantee that in 20 seconds with one balloon, you can have good apposition of the stent and a good job done. And in this case, we need to increase the level of accuracy at the time of implanting and at follow-up: OCT is a new possibility to obtain the best placement. This could be very important in the future.
