    5. Coronary Atherosclerotic Phenotype and Plaque Healing in Patients With Recurrent Acute Coronary Syndromes Compared With Patients With Long-term Clinical Stability An In Vivo Optical Coherence Tomography Study

      Coronary Atherosclerotic Phenotype and Plaque Healing in Patients With Recurrent Acute Coronary Syndromes Compared With Patients With Long-term Clinical Stability An In Vivo Optical Coherence Tomography Study
      Importance At one end of the coronary artery disease (CAD) spectrum, there are patients with multiple recurrent acute coronary syndromes (rACS), and at the other end there are those with long-standing clinical stability. Predicting the natural history of these patients is challenging because unstable plaques often heal without resulting in ACS. Objective To assess in vivo the coronary atherosclerotic phenotype as well as the prevalence and characteristics of healed coronary ...

      Purpose : To quantify peripapillary choroidal thickness (PCT) and the factors that influence it in healthy participants who represent the racial and ethnic composition of the U.S. population. Methods : A total of 362 healthy participants underwent optical coherence tomography (OCT) enhanced depth imaging of the optic nerve head with a 24 radial B-scan pattern aligned to the fovea to Bruch's membrane opening axis. Bruch's membrane, anterior scleral canal ...

    7. Procedural and One-Year Outcomes of Patients Treated with Orbital and Rotational Atherectomy with Mechanistic Insights from Optical Coherence Tomography

      Procedural and One-Year Outcomes of Patients Treated with Orbital and Rotational Atherectomy with Mechanistic Insights from Optical Coherence Tomography
      Aims: We sought to evaluate procedural complications and 1-year clinical outcomes for patients who underwent percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) with orbital (OA) and rotational atherectomy (RA). Methods and results: From a total of 13,467 patients who underwent PCI in our hospital between January 2013 and June 2016, 1149 consecutive patients were treated with atherectomy for moderately-severely calcified lesions (184 with OA, 965 with RA). Procedural complications were similarly observed ...

    8. Association of Myopia With Peripapillary Perfused Capillary Density in Patients With Glaucoma An Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography Study

      Association of Myopia With Peripapillary Perfused Capillary Density in Patients With Glaucoma An Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography Study
      Importance This study used optical coherence tomographic angiography to assess for impaired blood flow in myopic eyes with or without open-angle glaucoma. Objective To compare the peripapillary perfused capillary density (PCD) between eyes with and without glaucoma. Design, Setting, and Participants In this cross-sectional study at a tertiary glaucoma referral practice, we recruited patients with myopic eyes of spherical equivalent of more than 3.0 diopters with and without open-angle ...

    9. Optical Coherence Tomography for the Management of Fibrous Dysplasia of the Skull Base with Optic Nerve Involvement

      Optical Coherence Tomography for the Management of Fibrous Dysplasia of the Skull Base with Optic Nerve Involvement
      Background The skull base is the most common site of the craniofacial skeleton to be affected by fibrous dysplasia (FD). A significant proportion of such FD patients present with compression of the optic nerve, which can cause visual impairment, but most patients initially do not experience vision loss. Controversy exists regarding whether to proceed with a prophylactic surgical decompression of the optic nerve or to elect for watchful waiting. Optical ...

    10. Peripapillary Perfused Capillary Density in Exfoliation Syndrome and Exfoliation Glaucoma versus POAG and Healthy Controls: An OCTA Study

      Peripapillary Perfused Capillary Density in Exfoliation Syndrome and Exfoliation Glaucoma versus POAG and Healthy Controls: An OCTA Study
      PURPOSE: To compare the peripapillary perfused capillary density (PCD) among eyes with exfoliation syndrome (XFS), exfoliation glaucoma (XFG), primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG), and controls. DESIGN: Observational, cross-sectional study. METHODS: Optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) images (4.54.5 mm) of the optic nerve head were obtained using a commercial spectral domain OCTA system (AngioVue Avanti RTVue-XR, OptoVue, Fremont, CA). Two concentric circles with 1.95-mm (inner) and 3.45-mm (outer ...

    12. Optical Coherence Tomography in Dermatology

      Optical Coherence Tomography in Dermatology
      Optical coherence tomography (OCT), an emerging noninvasive imaging modality, recently received category III Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) codes from the American Medical Association, enabling tracking of its use in the medical community. In this article, we review OCT imaging and its variant systems, discussing its applications and limitations for clinical use. Future directions of OCT technology and goals for obtaining category I CPT codes and reimbursement also are discussed.

    14. Advanced Imaging of Intracranial Atherosclerosis: Lessons from Interventional Cardiology

      Advanced Imaging of Intracranial Atherosclerosis: Lessons from Interventional Cardiology
      ntracranial atherosclerosis is a major cause of ischemic stroke. Patients with a high degree of stenosis have a significant rate of stroke despite medical therapy. Two randomized trials of stenting have failed to show benefit. Improving peri-procedural complication rates and patient selection may improve stenting outcomes. Fractional flow reserve (FFR), intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) and optical coherence tomography (OCT) are intravascular imaging techniques employed to improve patient selection and stent placement ...

    Mount Sinai School of Medicine

    Mount Sinai School of Medicine is a medical school found in the borough of Manhattan in New York City. The official name is Mount Sinai School of Medicine of New York University due to its academic affiliation with New York University (NYU). However, Mount Sinai School of Medicine (MSSM) is independent of NYU; that is, MSSM has its own facilities, board of trustees, administration, student body, faculty, admissions offices, tuition fees, and endowment. MSSM also raises its own funds.
