      Characteristics of Earlier Versus Delayed Presentation of Very Late Drug‐Eluting Stent Thrombosis: An Optical Coherence Tomographic Study
      Background The pathophysiology underlying very late drug‐eluting stent ( DES ) thrombosis is not sufficiently understood. Using optical coherence tomography, we investigated characteristics of very late stent thrombosis ( VLST ) according to different onset times. Methods and Results A total of 98 patients from 10 South Korean hospitals who underwent optical coherence tomography for evaluation of very late DES thrombosis were retrospectively included in analyses. VLST occurred at a median of 55 ...

      Coronary Plaque Characteristics Associated With Reduced TIMI (Thrombolysis in Myocardial Infarction) Flow Grade in Patients With ST-Segment–Elevation Myocardial Infarction A Combined Optical Coherence Tomography and Intravascular Ultrasound Study
      Background Previous studies reported that reduced TIMI (Thrombolysis in Myocardial Infarction) flow grade before procedure was associated with worse clinical outcomes in patients with ST-segmentelevation myocardial infarction undergoing primary percutaneous coronary intervention. The aim of this study was to identify specific morphological characteristics of the culprit plaque associated with poor TIMI flow grade at baseline in patients with ST-segmentelevation myocardial infarction using both optical coherence tomography and intravascular ultrasound.

    15. Coronary Calcification and Plaque Vulnerability An Optical Coherence Tomographic Study

      Coronary Calcification and Plaque Vulnerability An Optical Coherence Tomographic Study
      Background Spotty superficial calcium deposits have been implicated in plaque vulnerability based on previous intravascular imaging studies. Biomechanical models suggest that microcalcifications between 5 and 65 m in diameter can intensify fibrous cap stress, promoting plaque rupture. However, the 100- to 200-m resolution of intravascular ultrasound limits its ability to discriminate single calcium deposits from clusters of smaller deposits, and a previous optical coherence tomographic investigation evaluated calcifications within a ...
