    2. Plaque morphology predictors of side branch occlusion after provisional stenting in coronary bifurcation lesion: Results of optical coherence tomography bifurcation study (ORBID)

      Plaque morphology predictors of side branch occlusion after provisional stenting in coronary bifurcation lesion: Results of optical coherence tomography bifurcation study (ORBID)
      Objectives The aim of this study was to identify the predictors of side branch (SB) ostial stenosis developed after provisional stenting of the main vessel (MV) using optical coherence tomography (OCT). Background Provisional stenting remains the main approach to treatment of bifurcation lesions; however, it may result in the narrowing of SB ostium. There is little information about underlying plaque morphology of the MV lesion and its potential impact on ...

    3. Multimodality Intravascular Imaging to Predict Periprocedural Myocardial Infarction During Percutaneous Coronary Intervention

      Multimodality Intravascular Imaging to Predict Periprocedural Myocardial Infarction During Percutaneous Coronary Intervention
      Objectives The aim of this study is to compare the relative merits of optical coherence tomography (OCT), intravascular ultrasound (IVUS), and near infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) in patients with coronary artery disease for the prediction of periprocedural myocardial infarction (MI). Background Although several individual intravascular imaging modalities have been employed to predict periprocedural MI, it is unclear which of the imaging tools would best allow prediction of this complication. Methods We ...

      Plaques with high lipid burden: keeping the fat out of the fire
      Two recent papers published in Heart have evaluated the utility of advanced imaging modalities for the morphological detection and evaluation of high-risk atherosclerotic plaques. 1 , 2 While these studies employed differing methodologies (CT angiography (CTA), optical coherence tomography (OCT) and optic angioscopy), the results are broadly concordant and of major potential clinical significance. Notably, when subjected to percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), such high-risk plaques may embolise and release a slurry ...
