    2. Optical coherence tomography or intravascular ultrasound to optimize coronary stent implantation

      Optical coherence tomography or intravascular ultrasound to optimize coronary stent implantation
      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) provides high-resolution tomographic images of the coronary arteries. 1 , 2 Spatial resolution of OCT (15m) is 10 times better than that of intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) (150m). 1 , 2 However, OCT needs complete blood clearance from the coronary lumen and, therefore, requires the use of contrast media. 1 , 2 OCT is unable to penetrate and see throughout red thrombus (that casts major dorsal shadowing) whereas IVUS is ...

    3. Optical Coherence Tomography Findings in Patients With Recanalized Coronary Thrombi Treated With Bioresorbable Vascular Scaffolds

      Optical Coherence Tomography Findings in Patients With Recanalized Coronary Thrombi Treated With Bioresorbable Vascular Scaffolds
      Introduction Recanalized coronary thrombi (RCT) are rarely recognized in real-world clinical practice. Incidence and functional significance of RCT remain unclear. High-resolution imaging modalities, such as optical coherence tomography (OCT), may provide novel insight to further characterize this unique phenomenon. 1 , 2 We present a case series of RCT treated with bioresorbable vascular scaffold (BVS). Case 1 A 75-year-old man with a previous history of an inferior myocardial infarction was admitted ...

      Analysis Of AGE-RELATED Choroidal Layers Thinning In Healthy Eyes Using SWEPT-SOURCE Optical Coherence Tomography
      Purpose: To study the changes in the choroidal layers thickness with age in a healthy population using swept-source optical coherence tomography. Methods: Retrospective data analysis of a subgroup of eyes from a previous single-center, prospective, cross-sectional, noninterventional study. One hundred and sixty-nine healthy eyes were evaluated using swept-source optical coherence tomography. Inclusion criteria were best-corrected visual acuity between 20/20 and 20/25, spherical equivalent between 3 diopters, and no ...

    6. Effect of pharmacological pupil dilation on measurements and iol power calculation made using the new swept-source optical coherence tomography-based optical biomete

      Effect of pharmacological pupil dilation on measurements and iol power calculation made using the new swept-source optical coherence tomography-based optical biomete
      Purpose To determine whether pupil dilation affects biometric measurements and intraocular lens (IOL) power calculation made using the new swept-source optical coherence tomography-based optical biometer (IOLMaster 700 ; Carl Zeiss Meditec, Jena, Germany). Procedures Eighty-one eyes of 81 patients evaluated for cataract surgery were prospectively examined using the IOLMaster 700 before and after pupil dilation with tropicamide 1%. The measurements made were: axial length (AL), central corneal thickness (CCT), aqueous chamber ...

    7. Glaucoma diagnostic capacity of optic nerve head haemoglobin measures compared with spectral domain OCT and HRT III confocal tomography

      Glaucoma diagnostic capacity of optic nerve head haemoglobin measures compared with spectral domain OCT and HRT III confocal tomography
      Purpose The computer program laguna onhe determines optic nerve head haemoglobin (ONH Hb) on retinal photographs based on detecting colour differences. This study compares the diagnostic capacity of Laguna ONhE with that of spectral domain optical coherence tomography (OCT) and confocal tomography (HRT III). Methods In a prospective, observational, cross-sectional study, glaucomatous ( n = 66) and healthy ( n = 52) eyes were examined by Spectralis OCT, HRT III and Laguna ONhE. The ...

    8. Fourier domain optical coherence tomography to assess the iridocorneal angle and correlation study in a large Caucasian population

      Fourier domain optical coherence tomography to assess the iridocorneal angle and correlation study in a large Caucasian population
      Background Recently, novel anatomic parameters that can be measured by optical coherence tomography (OCT), have been identified as a more objective and accurate method of defining the iridocorneal angle. The aim of the present study is to measure the iridocorneal angle by Fourier domain (FD) OCT and to identify correlations between angle measurements and subject factors in a large healthy Caucasian population. Methods A cross sectional study was performed in ...

    9. ASYMMETRY IN MACULAR CHOROIDAL THICKNESS PROFILE BETWEEN BOTH EYES IN A HEALTHY POPULATION MEASURED BY SWEPT-SOURCE OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY

      ASYMMETRY IN MACULAR CHOROIDAL THICKNESS PROFILE BETWEEN BOTH EYES IN A HEALTHY POPULATION MEASURED BY SWEPT-SOURCE OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY
      Purpose: To determine the difference in macular choroidal thickness (CT) profile between eyes in healthy individuals using swept-source optical coherence tomography. Design: Cross-sectional noninterventional study. Participants: One hundred and forty eyes from 70 healthy patients with spherical equivalent between +/-3 D and with difference =0.25 D between eyes were scanned using a swept-source optical coherence tomography (Topcon Corporation). Methods: Cross-sectional noninterventional study. One hundred and forty eyes from 70 ...

To assess the capacity of internal retinal layer thickness measurements made at the macula using new spectral domain OCT software (Spectralis OCT, Heidelberg Engineering) to distinguish between healthy subjects and those with suspected glaucoma. The diagnostic performance of such measurements was also compared with that of conventional peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness measurements. Methods. The study included 38 subjects with suspected glaucoma and 38 age-matched healthy subjects ...

    12. Treatment of Coronary In-Stent Restenosis With Bioabsorbable Vascular Scaffolds

      Treatment of Coronary In-Stent Restenosis With Bioabsorbable Vascular Scaffolds
      A 77-year-old woman was admitted for angina 13 years after receiving a bare-metal stent in the left anterior descending coronary artery. Angiography showed in-stent restenosis (ISR). Optical coherence tomography (OCT) revealed a well-expanded stent with focal ISR ( arrow in longitudinal display, A ) and heterogeneous tissue, including lipid pools (+) and and calcified segments (#) , suggesting neoatherosclerosis (B to D) (wire-artifact [*] ). Most underlying struts were not visible. A bioabsorbable vascular scaffold (BVS) was ...

    13. New Insights on Plaque Erosion and Calcified Nodules “Seeing Is Believing”

      New Insights on Plaque Erosion and Calcified Nodules “Seeing Is Believing”
      Plaque erosion (PE) and calcified nodules (CN) have been classically described in pathological studies as causes of acute coronary syndromes (ACS) ( 1 ). However, until very recently, the diagnosis of these entities in the clinical setting has remained largely elusive ( 1 ). In this regard, the study of Jia et al. 2 , using optical coherence tomography (OCT) for the diagnosis of PE and CN, is of major clinical interest and raises several ...
