    3. Immediate results of bifurcational stenting assessed with optical coherence tomography

      Immediate results of bifurcational stenting assessed with optical coherence tomography
      Background: A tubular stent may adapt with difficulty to coronary bifurcation lesions (CBLs).Methods: Time domain or frequency domain (FD) optical coherence tomography (OCT) was performed to assess strut apposition immediately after stent implantation across four segments inside the bifurcation, in a consecutive series of patients. OCT pullbacks were performed in the main vessel (MV).Results: A total of 13,142 struts in 45 CBL in 41 patients were assessed ...

    4. Thrombus Contribution to Very Late Restenosis of Bare-Metal Stent Treated by Excimer Laser Angioplasty: In Vivo Assessment with Optical Coherence Tomography

      Thrombus Contribution to Very Late Restenosis of Bare-Metal Stent Treated by Excimer Laser Angioplasty: In Vivo Assessment with Optical Coherence Tomography
      A 75-year-old, male ex-smoker with hypertension and family history of ischemic heart disease, previous anterior myocardial infarction, and angioplasty with bare-metal stent implantation to the left anterior descending artery 4 years earlier, developed effort angina. A nuclear myocardial scan documented a stress-inducible perfusion defect in the left ventricular anterior wall. The patient was taking 100 mg aspirin daily and a 300 mg loading dose of clopidogrel was administered the day ...

    6. Optical coherence tomography follow-up of the subintimal tracking and re-entry technique for chronic total occlusion

      Optical coherence tomography follow-up of the subintimal tracking and re-entry technique for chronic total occlusion
      A 44-year-old man, a smoker with dyslipidemia, underwent successful percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) of a chronic total occlusion in the right coronary artery (RCA). The site of occlusion was very proximal. An attemp to cross the leason was performed using an antegrade approach, during which dissection of the ostium occurred and the guidewire entered the false lumen.

    7. Simple versus complex approaches to treating coronary bifurcation lesions: direct assessment of stent strut apposition by optical coherence tomography.

      Simple versus complex approaches to treating coronary bifurcation lesions: direct assessment of stent strut apposition by optical coherence tomography.
      Introduction and objectives. Stenting of coronary bifurcation lesions carries an increased risk of stent deformation and malapposition. Anatomical and pathological observations indicate that the high stent thrombosis rate in bifurcations is due to malapposition of stent struts. Methods. Strut apposition was assessed with optical coherence tomography (OCT) in bifurcation lesions treated either using the simple technique of stent implantation in the main vessel only or a complex technique (i.e ...

    8. Optical coherence tomography assessment of a new dedicated bifurcation stent

      Optical coherence tomography assessment of a new dedicated bifurcation stent
      Dedicated bifurcation stents should facilitate deployment and improved coverage of bifurcational lesions. We used optical coherence tomography (OCT) to assess bifurcation lesions treated with a dedicated stent implanted in the side branch (SB) in conjunction with drug eluting stents in the main vessel (MV) in a culotte-like fashion.

    9. An optical coherence tomography study of a biodegradable vs. durable polymer-coated limus-eluting stent: a LEADERS trial sub-study

      Aims: Incomplete endothelialization has been found to be associated with late stent thrombosis, a rare but devastating phenomenon, more frequent after drug-eluting stent implantation. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) has 10 times greater resolution than intravascular ultrasound and thus appears to be a valuable modality for the assessment of stent strut coverage. The LEADERS trial was a multi-centre, randomized comparison of a biolimus-eluting stent (BES) with biodegradable polymer with a sirolimus-eluting ...

    10. A Multicentre Evaluation of the Safety of Intra-Coronary Optical Coherence Tomography

      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is increasingly being applied to the coronary arteries. However, the risks associated with the imaging procedure are not yet well defined. The purpose of the present multicentre registry was to access the acute complicaitons associated with the clinical use of intera-coronary OCT in a large number of patients.

    11. Quantitative analysis of intracoronary optical coherence tomography measurements of stent strut apposition and tissue coverage

      Abstract: Background: The introduction of optical coherence tomography (OCT) as an intracoronary imaging modality has allowed accurate assessment of strut apposition and neointimal tissue coverage. This study set out to assess the inter and intraobserver variability of measurements of acute stent apposition and strut tissue coverage using OCT.Methods: Thirty patients were studied (14 immediately after stent implantation and 16 during follow-up angiography [mean of 4.7±2.8 months ...

    12. Assessment with optical coherence tomography of a new strategy for bifurcational lesion treatment: The Tryton Side-Branch Stent.

      The Tryton-Side Branch StentTM (Tryton Medical, Inc., Newton, MA, USA) is a dedicated stent designed to provide complete carinal coverage of bifurcational lesions. After implantation of a 18 mm cobalt chromium Tryton stent from the left circumflex into the obtuse marginal branch, recrossing with an everolimus eluting Promus stent and final kissing balloon dilatation, optical coherence tomography (OCT) (LightLab Imaging Inc., Westford, MA, USA) was performed with a non-occlusive technique ...

    13. The use of intra-coronary optical coherence tomography for the assessment of sirolimus-eluting stent fracture

      Drug-eluting stents (DES) have made a tremendous impact on the practice of percutaneous coronary intervention. Recently however, long-term DES failures have become a focal point, particularly with restenosis and thrombosis. An uncommon, yet important cause of DES failure is stent fracture. Of the two established first generation DES, the sirolimus-eluting stent (SES) has been particularly linked to cases of stent fracture, likely as a result of its closed cell design ...

    14. In-vivo characterisation of coronary atherosclerosis with optical coherence tomography

      In-vivo characterisation of coronary atherosclerosis with optical coherence tomography
      The burden of atherosclerosis has triggered intense interest in the study of “vulnerable” plaques at high risk of rupture. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) has recently contributed to the in-vivo visualisation of plaque, providing unique insights into the atherosclerotic process, previously only attainable through postmortem examination. This technique uses near infrared light and an optical imaging wire attached to a patient interface unit with a pullback speed of up to 3 ...
