    2. Bioresorbable Vascular Scaffolds in coronary chronic total occlusions. Clinical, vasomotor and optical coherence tomography findings at 3-year follow-up (ABSORB-CTO study)

      Bioresorbable Vascular Scaffolds in coronary chronic total occlusions. Clinical, vasomotor and optical coherence tomography findings at 3-year follow-up (ABSORB-CTO study)
      Aims: Percutaneous treatment of coronary chronic total occlusion (CTO) is associated with important arterial remodelling after successful recanalization. Bioresorbable vascular scaffold (BVS) implantation in CTO has been shown feasible and can be of interest when the scaffold achieves complete bioresorption. We sought to evaluate the 3-year results in terms of clinical events, serial imaging outcomes and the vasomotion response in CTO lesions successfully treated with BVS. Methods and results: A ...

    3. Effect of the Endothelial Shear Stress Patterns on Neointimal Proliferation Following Drug-Eluting Bioresorbable Vascular Scaffold Implantation : An Optical Coherence Tomography Study

      Effect of the Endothelial Shear Stress Patterns on Neointimal Proliferation Following Drug-Eluting Bioresorbable Vascular Scaffold Implantation : An Optical Coherence Tomography Study
      Objectives The goal of this study was to investigate the effect of endothelial shear stress (ESS) on neointimal formation following an Absorb bioresorbable vascular scaffold (BVS) (Abbott Vascular, Santa Clara, California) implantation. Background Cumulative evidence, derived from intravascular ultrasoundbased studies, has demonstrated a strong association between local ESS patterns and neointimal formation in bare-metal stents, whereas in drug-eluting stents, there are contradictory data about the effect of ESS on the ...

    4. In vitro performance of different methods in detecting occlusal caries lesions

      In vitro performance of different methods in detecting occlusal caries lesions
      Early caries detection is essential for the implementation of preventive, therapeutic and intervention strategies within general dental practice. Objective: The aim of this study was to compare the in vitro performance of the International Caries Detection and Assessment System (ICDAS), Digital Photographs scored with ICDAS (ICDAS photographs), Fibre-Optic Trans-Ilumination (FOTI), Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT), SoproLife camera and two implementations of Quantitative Light-Induced Fluorescence a commercial (QLF-Inspektor Research systems) and a ...

    6. Three-dimensional optical frequency domain imaging in conventional percutaneous coronary intervention: the potential for clinical application

      Three-dimensional optical frequency domain imaging in conventional percutaneous coronary intervention: the potential for clinical application
      Two-dimensional (2D) frequency domain optical coherence tomography (FD-OCT) has enhanced our understanding of coronary atherosclerotic disease and is increasingly being used in conventional percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) to elucidate mechanisms of disease and improve our understanding of complex coronary anatomy. Since the first report of three-dimensional (3D) OCT applied in human coronary vessels,1 the technology has rapidly progressed.210 Currently, the main limitation of this technology is the need ...

    7. Angiographic maximal luminal diameter and appropriate deployment of the everolimus-eluting bioresorbable vascular scaffold as assessed by optical coherence tomography: an ABSORB cohort B trial sub-study

      Angiographic maximal luminal diameter and appropriate deployment of the everolimus-eluting bioresorbable vascular scaffold as assessed by optical coherence tomography: an ABSORB cohort B trial sub-study
      Aims: Bioresorbable vascular scaffolds (BVS) present different mechanical properties as compared to metallic platform stents. Therefore, the standard procedural technique to achieve appropriate deployment may differ. Methods and results: Fifty-two lesions treated with 3x18 mm BVS were imaged with optical coherence tomography (OCT) post-implantation and screened for parameters suggestion non-optimal deployment.

    10. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) of overlapping bioresorbable scaffolds: from benchwork to clinical application

      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) of overlapping bioresorbable scaffolds: from benchwork to clinical application
      Fully bioresorbable everolimus-eluting vascular scaffolds (BVS: Abbott Vascular) are a novel approach to treating coronary lesions. The ABSORB cohort A and cohort B trials investigated the implantation of 3 mm BVS, up to a maximum length of 18 mm, in simple lesions only, The implantation of overlapping BVS in longer lesions has not previously been reported.

    11. Healing of a coronary artery dissection detected by intravascular ultrasound and optical coherence tomography.

      Healing of a coronary artery dissection detected by intravascular ultrasound and optical coherence tomography.
      A 56 year old woman, active smoker with no other cardiovascular risk factors was admitted to hospital to undergo elective angioplasty on the proximal circumflex artery. A bioresorbable scaffold was implanted. Post-implantation IVUS showed a residual coronary dissection at the distal edge of the scaffold. In addition, OCT was performed showing an intimal flap reaching the first frame proxi8mal to the take-off of the side branch distal to the scaffold.
