    2. Type 2 diabetes mellitus is associated with a lower fibrous cap thickness but has no impact on calcification morphology: an intracoronary optical coherence tomography study

      Type 2 diabetes mellitus is associated with a lower fibrous cap thickness but has no impact on calcification morphology: an intracoronary optical coherence tomography study
      Background Patients with type 2 diabetes (T2DM) are at high risk for cardiovascular events, which usually arise from the rupture of a vulnerable coronary plaque. The minimal fibrous cap thickness (FCT) overlying a necrotic lipid core is an established predictor for plaque rupture. Recently, coronary calcification has emerged as a relevant feature of plaque vulnerability. However, the impact of T2DM on these morphological plaque parameters is largely unexplored. Therefore, this ...

    5. Correlation between optical coherence tomography-derived intraluminal parameters and fractional flow reserve measurements in intermediate grade coronary lesions

      Correlation between optical coherence tomography-derived intraluminal parameters and fractional flow reserve measurements in intermediate grade coronary lesions
      Background Fractional flow reserve (FFR) measurements accurately assess functional relevance in intermediate grade coronary lesions. A significant relationship between hemodynamic stenosis severity and optical coherence tomography (OCT)-derived intraluminal dimensions has recently been demonstrated. However, morphologic thresholds to identify significant stenoses are variable and exploration of this correlation in patients with diabetes mellitus (DM) remains currently incomplete. This study aimed at comparing the diagnostic value of intraluminal parameters as determined ...

    6. Optical coherence tomography derived differences of plaque characteristics in coronary culprit lesions between type 2 diabetic patients with and without acute coronary syndrome

      Optical coherence tomography derived differences of plaque characteristics in coronary culprit lesions between type 2 diabetic patients with and without acute coronary syndrome
      Objective : To compare optical coherence tomography (OCT)-derived plaque characteristics of coronary target lesions between diabetic patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS) versus stable angina pectoris (SAP). Background : In vivo assessment of plaque composition of coronary culprit lesions in a cardiovascular high-risk population with diabetes mellitus is incompletely elucidated. Methods : 102 diabetic patients with coronary de novo lesions were enrolled and categorized into an ACS-group (40 patients) and a SAP-group ...

    7. Plaque vulnerability of coronary artery lesions is related to left ventricular dilatation as determined by optical coherence tomography and cardiac magnetic resonance imaging in patients with type 2 diabetes

      Plaque vulnerability of coronary artery lesions is related to left ventricular dilatation as determined by optical coherence tomography and cardiac magnetic resonance imaging in patients with type 2 diabetes
      Background Patients with type 2 diabetes are at increased risk for both, left ventricular (LV)-dilatation and myocardial infarction (MI) following the rupture of a vulnerable plaque. This study investigated the to date incompletely understood relationship between plaque vulnerability and LV-dilatation using optical coherence tomography (OCT) and cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMR) in patients with type 2 diabetes and stable coronary artery disease. Methods CMR was performed in 58 patients ...

    8. Predictors and incidence of stent edge dissections in patients with type 2 diabetes as determined by optical coherence tomography

      Predictors and incidence of stent edge dissections in patients with type 2 diabetes as determined by optical coherence tomography
      Patients with type 2 diabetes are at increased risk for post-PCI complications including stent thrombosis and restenosis. Stent edge dissections (SEDs) have been associated with these complications. This study assessed incidence and predictors of SEDs in patients with type 2 diabetes using optical coherence tomography (OCT). Intravascular lesion parameters and plaque morphology were investigated pre- and post-PCI using OCT in 73 type 2 diabetic patients with 90 lesions and 166 ...

    9. Relationship between optical coherence tomography derived intraluminal and intramural criteria and haemodynamic relevance as determined by fractional flow reserve in intermediate coronary stenoses of patients with type 2 diabetes

      Relationship between optical coherence tomography derived intraluminal and intramural criteria and haemodynamic relevance as determined by fractional flow reserve in intermediate coronary stenoses of patients with type 2 diabetes
      Background The relationship between functional relevance and optical coherence tomography (OCT)-derived measurements of coronary lesions is incompletely understood and of critical importance, particularly in cardiovascular high-risk patients with type 2 diabetes. Objective To investigate the association between functional relevance of intermediate grade coronary stenoses as assessed by fractional flow reserve (FFR) and OCT-derived lesion parameters in patients with diabetes. Methods In 46 diabetic patients with stable coronary artery disease ...
