    2. Impact of lesion angle on optical coherence tomography findings and clinical outcomes after drug-eluting stent implantation in curved vessels

      Impact of lesion angle on optical coherence tomography findings and clinical outcomes after drug-eluting stent implantation in curved vessels
      Tortuous coronary lesions are associated with adverse outcomes after implantation of bare metal or first-generation drug-eluting stents (DESs). We investigated the impact of lesion angle on vessel wall injuries and stent apposition as assessed by optical coherence tomography (OCT) after second- and newer-generation DES implantation. We investigated 95 de novo lesions treated with a single DES (62 platinum-chromium everolimus-eluting stents and 33 bioresorbable-polymer sirolimus-eluting stents). Post-intervention OCT findings were compared ...

    3. Restenosis of a Polytetrafluoroethylene-Covered Stent Visualized by Coronary Angioscopy and Optical Coherence Tomography: A Case Report

      Restenosis of a Polytetrafluoroethylene-Covered Stent Visualized by Coronary Angioscopy and Optical Coherence Tomography: A Case Report
      An expandable polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE)-covered stent graft is beneficial for the treatment of coronary perforations. However, several reports have shown that restenosis and thrombotic occlusion occasionally occur in the stented segment after PTFE-covered stent implantation. A restenosis case after treatment with PTFE-covered stent against saphenous vein graft (SVG) perforation has never been evaluated with optical coherence tomography (OCT) or coronary angioscopy (CAS). This case report presents a 75-year-old man treated ...

    6. Impact of optical coherence tomography- and coronary angioscopy-assessed neointimal tissue characteristics on occurrence of periprocedural myonecrosis in patients with in-stent restenosis

      Impact of optical coherence tomography- and coronary angioscopy-assessed neointimal tissue characteristics on occurrence of periprocedural myonecrosis in patients with in-stent restenosis
      Several characteristics of neointimal tissues, including neoatherosclerotic progression, have been reported in lesions with in-stent restenosis (ISR). However, the effects of these characteristics on outcomes after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for ISR lesions remain unclear. We assessed the relationships between neointimal tissue characteristics and the occurrence of periprocedural myonecrosis (PMN) after PCI in ISR lesions. We investigated 72 ISR lesions in 72 patients with stable angina pectoris (SAP) who underwent ...

    7. Impact of chronic kidney disease stages on atherosclerotic plaque components on optical coherence tomography in patients with coronary artery disease

      Impact of chronic kidney disease stages on atherosclerotic plaque components on optical coherence tomography in patients with coronary artery disease
      The progression of coronary atherosclerosis has been influenced by the presence of chronic kidney disease (CKD). This study investigated the impact of CKD stages on coronary plaque components observed on optical coherence tomography (OCT). We investigated 296 native coronary lesions with stable angina pectoris treated with stent implantation. All lesions were divided into the three groups according to the values of estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR, mL min 1 1 ...

      Association of Intravascular Ultrasound- and Optical Coherence Tomography-Assessed Coronary Plaque Morphology With Periprocedural Myocardial Injury in Patients With Stable Angina Pectoris
      Background: Periprocedural myocardial injury (PMI) is not an uncommon complication and is related to adverse cardiac events after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). We investigated the predictors of PMI in patients with stable angina pectoris (SAP) on intravascular imaging. Methods and Results: We enrolled 193 SAP patients who underwent pre-PCI intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) and optical coherence tomography (OCT). Clinical characteristics, lesion morphology, and long-term follow-up data were compared between patients with ...

      In vivo detection of lipid-rich plaque by using a 40-MHz intravascular ultrasound: a comparison with optical coherence tomography findings
      iMAP has recently been introduced as a new tissue characterization method using the 40-MHz intravascular ultrasound (IVUS). However, few data have been published on the comparative findings of other imaging modalities in vivo. We examined 108 matched lesions from 70 patients (35 with stable angina and 35 with acute coronary syndrome) that underwent percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) using pre-PCI OCT and IVUS. Identification of OCT-derived lipid-rich plaques and thin-cap fibroatheroma ...

      Impact of Coronary Plaque Morphology Assessed by Optical Coherence Tomography on Cardiac Troponin Elevation in Patients With Elective Stent Implantation
      Background—Mild elevations of cardiac troponin frequently occur after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), and patients with elevated post-PCI biomarkers have a worse prognosis. We used optical coherence tomography (OCT) to study the relationship between pre-PCI plaque morphology and post-PCI cardiac troponin I elevations. Methods and Results—One hundred thirty-one patients with normal pre-PCI cardiac troponin I levels underwent OCT before nonemergency stent implantation. Clinical and OCT findings were compared between ...
