    2. Optical coherence tomography in coronary atherosclerosis assessment and intervention

      Optical coherence tomography in coronary atherosclerosis assessment and intervention
      Since optical coherence tomography (OCT) was first performed in humans two decades ago, this imaging modality has been widely adopted in research on coronary atherosclerosis and adopted clinically for the optimization of percutaneous coronary intervention. In the past 10 years, substantial advances have been made in the understanding of in vivo vascular biology using OCT. Identification by OCT of culprit plaque pathology could potentially lead to a major shift in ...

    4. Optical Coherence Tomography of Plaque Vulnerability and Rupture: JACC Focus Seminar Part 1/3

      Optical Coherence Tomography of Plaque Vulnerability and Rupture: JACC Focus Seminar Part 1/3
      Plaque rupture is the most common cause of acute coronary syndromes and sudden cardiac death. Characteristics and pathobiology of vulnerable plaques prone to plaque rupture have been studied extensively over 2 decades in humans using optical coherence tomography (OCT), an intravascular imaging technique with micron scale resolution. OCT studies have identified key features of plaque vulnerability and described the in vivo characteristics and spatial distribution of thin cap fibroatheromas as ...

    5. Optical Coherence Tomography of Plaque Erosion: JACC Focus Seminar Part 2/3

      Optical Coherence Tomography of Plaque Erosion: JACC Focus Seminar Part 2/3
      Plaque erosion, a distinct histopathological and clinical entity, accounts for over 30% of acute coronary syndromes (ACS). Optical coherence tomography allows in vivo diagnosis of plaque erosion. Local flow perturbation with activation of Toll-like receptor 2 and CD8 + T cells and subsequent desquamation of endothelium and neutrophil extracellular trap formation contribute to mechanisms of plaque erosion. Compared with ACS patients with plaque rupture, those with plaque erosion are younger, have ...

    6. Optical Coherence Tomography of Coronary Plaque Progression and Destabilization: JACC Focus Seminar Part 3/3

      Optical Coherence Tomography of Coronary Plaque Progression and Destabilization: JACC Focus Seminar Part 3/3
      The development of optical coherence tomography (OCT) has revolutionized our understanding of coronary artery disease. In vivo OCT research has paralleled with advances in computational fluid dynamics, providing additional insights in the various hemodynamic factors influencing plaque growth and stability. Recent OCT studies introduced a new concept of plaque healing in relation to clinical presentation. In addition to known mechanisms of acute coronary syndromes such as plaque rupture and plaque ...

      Aqueous Humor Cytokine Levels Through Microarray Analysis and a Sub-Analysis Based on Optical Coherence Tomography in Wet Age-Related Macular Degeneration Patients
      Purpose: To evaluate the magnitude of change in optic disc, peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) and macular parameters measured by swept-source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT) in glaucomatous eyes after filtration surgery, and to determine any possible relationship between these measurements and baseline factors. Patients and Methods: This multicenter, prospective, consecutive observational study included patients with open-angle glaucoma who required glaucoma filtering surgery (surgical group, 29 eyes) and those with ...

    8. Quantification of retinal microvascular parameters by severity of diabetic retinopathy using wide-field swept-source optical coherence tomography angiography

      Quantification of retinal microvascular parameters by severity of diabetic retinopathy using wide-field swept-source optical coherence tomography angiography
      Purpose: To investigate the diagnostic utility of microvascular parameters for grading the severity of diabetic retinopathy (DR) with a range of views using wide-field swept-source optical coherence tomography angiography (SS-OCTA). Methods: This retrospective study grouped 235 eyes with diabetes into the five grades: diabetes without retinopathy (no-DR), mild non-proliferative DR (NPDR), moderate NPDR, severe NPDR, and proliferative DR (PDR). Foveal avascular zone (FAZ) metrics, vessel density (VD), and the capillary ...

    9. Predictors for Rapid Progression of Coronary Calcification: An Optical Coherence Tomography Study

      Predictors for Rapid Progression of Coronary Calcification: An Optical Coherence Tomography Study
      Background The role of coronary calcification in cardiovascular events and plaque stabilization is still being debated, and factors involved in the progression of coronary calcification are not fully understood. This study aimed to identify the predictors for rapid progression of coronary calcification. Methods and Results Patients with serial optical coherence tomography imaging at baseline and at 6 months were selected. Changes in the calcification index and predictors for progression of ...

      Gap in capillary perfusion and burden of treatment in branch retinal vein occlusion: A wide-field optical coherence tomography angiography study
      Purpose: To evaluate correlations between the burden of anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) treatment and microperfusion status in superficial and deep capillary plexus (SCP and DCP) using wide-field optical coherence tomography angiography (OCT-A). Methods: A total 19 eyes with branch retinal vein occlusion (BRVO) were included in this retrospective study. Area of foveal avascular zone (FAZ), capillary non-perfusion area (NPA), vascular density, and perfusion gap were compared between SCP and ...

      Predictors of Rapid Plaque Progression: An Optical Coherence Tomography Study
      Objectives This study sought to identify morphological predictors of rapid plaque progression. Background Two patterns of plaque progression have been described: slow linear progression and rapid step-wise progression. The former pattern will cause stable angina when the narrowing reaches a critical threshold, whereas the latter pattern may lead to acute coronary syndromes or sudden cardiac death. Methods Patients who underwent optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging during the index procedure and ...

    12. Neointima characteristics as a prognostic marker for drug-coated balloon angioplasty in patients with in-stent restenosis: an optical coherence tomography study

      Neointima characteristics as a prognostic marker for drug-coated balloon angioplasty in patients with in-stent restenosis: an optical coherence tomography study
      Background Research has shown that the prognosis of in-stent restenosis (ISR) lesions after drug-coated balloon (DCB) angioplasty can differ in relation to in-stent neointimal characteristics. However, changes in neointima characteristics after DCB have not been studied. This study sought to investigate changes in neointima characteristics after DCB for ISR. Methods From the Yonsei Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) registry, data on DCBs performed in patients with ISR were collected. Neointima characteristics ...

      Efficacy of coronary imaging on bifurcation intervention
      During the coronary bifurcation intervention procedure, imaging including intravascular ultrasound and optical coherence tomography is essential to provide precise anatomy of the lesion and morphological information. This consensus document between the Korean Bifurcation Club and the Japanese Bifurcation Club summarizes practical guidelines and current evidences on lesion assessment, device selection, procedural guidance, and the optimization of bifurcation intervention by the imaging.

      Spatial Distribution of Vulnerable Plaques: Comprehensive In Vivo Coronary Plaque Mapping
      Objectives The authors performed a comprehensive analysis on the distribution of coronary plaques with different phenotypes from our 3-vessel optical coherence tomography (OCT) database. Background Previous pathology studies demonstrated that thin-cap fibroatheroma (TCFA) is localized in specific segments of the epicardial coronary arteries. A detailed description of in vivo coronary plaques of various phenotypes has not been reported. Methods OCT images of all 3 coronary arteries in 131 patients were ...
