    2. Association of ABO blood groups and non-culprit plaque characteristics in acute coronary syndrome: an optical coherence tomography study

      Association of ABO blood groups and non-culprit plaque characteristics in acute coronary syndrome: an optical coherence tomography study
      Background: Cardiovascular disease (CVD) poses a serious threat to human health. Research shows that ABO blood groups, especially non-O blood types, are closely related to the incidence of cardiovascular diseases (CVDs). This study aimed to determine the associations of blood types with non-culprit coronary plaque characteristics using optical coherence tomography (OCT). Methods: A total of 257 acute coronary syndrome (ACS) patients (average age, 59.3910.08 years, 80% male) who ...

    3. Incidence and Predictors of Neoatherosclerosis in Patients with Early In-Stent Restenosis Determined Using Optical Coherence Tomography

      Incidence and Predictors of Neoatherosclerosis in Patients with Early In-Stent Restenosis Determined Using Optical Coherence Tomography
      Summary In-stent restenosis (ISR) still exists after drug-eluting stent (DES) implantation, even up to one year. The incidence and risk factors for neoatherosclerosis in patients with early ISR have not yet been elucidated. Here, we used optical coherence tomography (OCT) to evaluate the incidence and predictors of neoatherosclerosis in patients with early ISRs. OCT was performed on ISR lesions in 185 patients in order to detect neoatherosclerosis. The median follow-up ...

    4. Full-Range Line-Field Optical Coherence Tomography for High-Accuracy Measurements of Optical Lens

      Full-Range Line-Field Optical Coherence Tomography for High-Accuracy Measurements of Optical Lens
      A full-range line-field Fourier-domain optical coherence tomography (LF-FDOCT) system with an accuracy at nanoscale was proposed for high-accuracy measurements of optical lens surface profile. The LF surface curve information of optical lens could be obtained in one measurement which does not need point-by-point scanning used in the traditional 1-D FDOCT system. The measurement accuracy of surface profile curve could be improved from micrometer scale to nanoscale by applying spectral center ...

    5. Unexpected Findings and Tailored Treatments of In-Stent Restenosis: Novel Insights from Optical Coherence Tomography

      Unexpected Findings and Tailored Treatments of In-Stent Restenosis: Novel Insights from Optical Coherence Tomography
      A 68-year-old man was admitted to our hospital with unstable angina. His medical history was remarkable for an acute myocardial infarction one year ago, treated with a zotarolimus-eluting stent (3.530 mm) in the mid right coronary artery. Coronary angiography showed a diffused in-stent restenosis (ISR) with haziness and filling defects (Figure 1A, Video 1). In order to identify the underlying mechanisms of ISR, optical coherence tomography (OCT) was performed ...

    6. The association between glucose-related variables and plaque morphology in patients with ST-segment elevated myocardial infarction

      The association between glucose-related variables and plaque morphology in patients with ST-segment elevated myocardial infarction
      Plaque rupture (PR) and plaque erosion (PE) are main causes of acute myocardial infarction with different demographic and histology characteristics and need different treatment strategy. PR and PE can be identified with optical coherence tomography (OCT) accurately, but convenient and effective noninvasive markers for them are rarely found. History of diabetes mellitus (DM) was reported to be a potential predictor of PR in ST-segment elevated myocardial infarction (STEMI) patients, but ...

    7. Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography Evaluation of Ocular Changes in Patients With Carotid Artery Stenosis

      Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography Evaluation of Ocular Changes in Patients With Carotid Artery Stenosis
      A growing body of research indicates that abnormal ocular microvascular features may serve as a novel biomarker reflecting the severity of underlying cardiovascular, neurodegenerative, and microvascular disease. Since blood flow to the retina is predominantly supplied by the internal carotid artery (ICA), we hypothesized that ocular microvasculature and structure changes may reflect the disease status or therapeutic effects in patients with carotid artery stenosis. Optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) is ...

    8. Plasma Ceramides in Relation to Coronary Plaque Characterization Determined by Optical Coherence Tomography

      Plasma Ceramides in Relation to Coronary Plaque Characterization Determined by Optical Coherence Tomography
      Plasma ceramides (Cer), a subset of bioactive lipids, have mechanistic links to development of atherosclerosis and are related to major adverse cardiovascular events (MACEs). Previous researches have demonstrated vulnerable plaques contribute to acute cardiovascular events and poor prognosis. This study aimed to explore the associations between Cer and culprit plaque characterizations evaluated by optical coherence tomography (OCT). It was found that plasma Cer are associated with culprit plaque vulnerability evaluated ...
