    2. Optical coherence tomography evaluation of intermediate-term healing of different stent types: systemic review and meta-analysis

      Optical coherence tomography evaluation of intermediate-term healing of different stent types: systemic review and meta-analysis
      Aims The intermediate-term incidence of strut malapposition (SM) and uncovered struts (US), and the degree of neointimal thickness (NIT) according to stent type have not been characterized. Methods and results All studies of 50 patients in which optical coherence tomography was performed between 6 and 12 months after stent implantation were included. The incidences of SM and US were the co-primary end points, while NIT was the secondary end point ...

    3. Comparison of Stent Expansion Guided by Optical Coherence Tomography Versus Intravascular Ultrasound : The ILUMIEN II Study (Observational Study of Optical Coherence Tomography [OCT] in Patients Undergoing Fractional Flow Reserve [FFR] and Percutaneous Co

      Comparison of Stent Expansion Guided by Optical Coherence Tomography Versus Intravascular Ultrasound : The ILUMIEN II Study (Observational Study of Optical Coherence Tomography [OCT] in Patients Undergoing Fractional Flow Reserve [FFR] and Percutaneous Co
      Background The most important predictor of adverse outcomes (thrombosis and restenosis) after stent implantation with IVUS guidance is the degree of stent expansion achieved. Methods We compared the relative degree of stent expansion (defined as the minimal stent area divided by the mean of the proximal and distal reference lumen areas) after OCT-guided stenting in patients in the ILUMIEN (Observational Study of Optical Coherence Tomography [OCT] in Patients Undergoing Fractional ...

    4. OCT Versus IVUS: Accuracy Versus Clinical Utility

      OCT Versus IVUS: Accuracy Versus Clinical Utility
      The technology of optical coherence tomography (OCT) has evolved from time-domain to frequency-domain imaging. Time-domain OCT is most often performed using proximal balloon occlusion; as such, dimensions are smaller than measured using intravascular ultrasound (IVUS), presumably due to diminished perfusion pressure. Conversely, frequency-domain OCT does not require proximal balloon occlusion, theoretically resulting in more accurate measurements. With this background, Kubo et al. ( 1 ) in this issue of iJACC , conducted a ...

    7. A Prospective Natural-History Study of Coronary Atherosclerosis

      A Prospective Natural-History Study of Coronary Atherosclerosis
      Background Atherosclerotic plaques that lead to acute coronary syndromes often occur at sites of angiographically mild coronary-artery stenosis. Lesion-related risk factors for such events are poorly understood. Full Text of Background... Methods In a prospective study, 697 patients with acute coronary syndromes underwent three-vessel coronary angiography and gray-scale and radiofrequency intravascular ultrasonographic imaging after percutaneous coronary intervention. Subsequent major adverse cardiovascular events (death from cardiac causes, cardiac arrest, myocardial infarction ...

  3. Quotes

    1. As the interventional cardiology landscape has shifted to the treatment of more complex patients, intravascular imaging and fractional flow reserve have emerged as critical tools for enabling physicians to make more informed treatment decisions during PCI... “By integrating these tools directly into cath lab infrastructure, we can enhance access to technology and have them readily available during PCI procedures.
      In St. Jude Medical Announces Launch of OPTIS Integrated System
    2. For years, interventional cardiologists have been focused on using angiography to identify blockages and to restore flow. PROSPECT teaches us that looking at the angiographic severity of the blockage is not enough, and we must understand the type of disease present in the vessel wall.
      In Results From Landmark PROSPECT Trial Demonstrate the Ability of Volcano's VH(R) IVUS Imaging to Identify Plaques Most Likely to Cause Heart Attacks
    3. But if we can predict heart attacks, can we do anything about it? We will need studies to see if new drugs, stents or other treatments can improve outcome.
