    2. An optical coherence tomography study of two new generation stents with biodegradable polymer carrier, eluting paclitaxel vs. biolimus-A9

      An optical coherence tomography study of two new generation stents with biodegradable polymer carrier, eluting paclitaxel vs. biolimus-A9
      Background Tissue coverage and strut apposition of drug eluting stents (DES), which can be assessed with optical coherence tomography (OCT), may be associated with late stent thrombosis (LST). Methods Prospective observational angiographic and OCT follow-up at 6months post-implantation of a biolimus-A9 eluting stent (BES) vs. a paclitaxel eluting stent (PES), with biodegradable polymer carriers. The primary outcome was the percent difference of uncovered struts between BESs and PESs. Results A ...

    3. Intracoronary Optical Coherence Tomography for the Assessment of In-Stent Restenosis

      Intracoronary Optical Coherence Tomography for the Assessment of In-Stent Restenosis
      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a novel imaging modality in interventional cardiology. With its clear image quality, it has attracted considerable attention as a tool to accurately evaluate atherosclerosis and coronary stents in vivo. It has a 10-fold higher resolution compared to intravascular ultrasound and utilises near-infrared light that requires temporary blood clearance during image acquisition. We present a case of in-stent restenosis in a patient five years after percutaneous ...

    4. Neointimal tissue rupture as a mechanism of myocardial infarction very late following implantation of bare metal stents. Insights from optical coherence tomography

      Neointimal tissue rupture as a mechanism of myocardial infarction very late following implantation of bare metal stents. Insights from optical coherence tomography
      A 49-year-old male presented with an ST-elevation acute myocardial infarction 6 years following implantation of a bare metal stent (BMS) in the left anterior descending artery (LAD). Coronary angiography (CAG), before primary angioplasty disclosed severe restenosis of the stent (A, arrow). In B–F, five successive optical coherence tomography (OCT) image frames acquired at the level of restenosis, show complete burying of stent struts (asterisks), under thick neointimal tissue with ...

    5. Neointimal coverage and stent strut apposition six months after implantation of a paclitaxel eluting stent in acute coronary syndromes: An optical coherence tomography study

      Neointimal coverage and stent strut apposition six months after implantation of a paclitaxel eluting stent in acute coronary syndromes: An optical coherence tomography study
      Abstract: Objectives: Prospective optical coherence tomography (OCT) study of strut apposition and neointimal hyperplasia thickness (NIH) of a paclitaxel eluting stent (PES), (Infinium, Sahajanand Medical Technologies Pvt Ltd.).Background: Few data exist concerning neointimal coverage of PES. Uncovered and malapposed struts are more common following stenting in acute coronary syndromes (ACS) than in non-ACS lesions.Methods: All consecutive patients with ACS, treated with the above PES for single native coronary ...

    7. Late asymptomatic sirolimus-eluting stent fracture in a female with systemic lupus erythematosus

      Abstract: We report a case of a sirolimus eluting (Cypher, Johnson-Johnson) stent fracture (SF) incidentally depicted 3 years post PCI in an asymptomatic female with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). The vessel was assessed with intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) and optical coherence tomography (OCT). Different imaging modalities results are presented. OCT may offer superior imaging of SF compared to fluoroscopy and IVUS and might prove useful for the detailed assessment and tailored ...

    8. Intimal hyperplasia by optical coherence tomography after BMS and DES implantation in the same artery

      Drug eluting stents (DES) by inhibiting neointimal proliferation are associated with a much lower in-stent restenosis rate compared with bare metal stents (BMS). Studies supporting these data have included patients in whom either DES or BMS were implanted but not both. What has rarely been described is the vessel response against both types of stents in the same patient. This case illustrates the difference in neointimal hyperplasia after the deployment ...
