    2. Optical Fiber Beam Directing Systems And Apparatuses

      Optical Fiber Beam Directing Systems And Apparatuses

      In one aspect, the invention relates to a lens (52) configured for optical coherence tomography imaging. The lens includes a substantially cylindrical body (52) having a longitudinal axis and includes a first end, an outer cylindrical surface, and a beam directing surface at a second end, the substantially cylindrical body and the outer cylindrical surface defining a trench (58) in between the first end and the beam directing surface, the beam directing surface being oriented at an angle to the longitudinal axis, and the trench being sized to accept an optical fiber. In another aspect, the invention relates to a ...

    4. Visualization of Complete Regression of Pulmonary Arterial Remodeling on Optical Coherence Tomography in a Patient With Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension

      Visualization of Complete Regression of Pulmonary Arterial Remodeling on Optical Coherence Tomography in a Patient With Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension

      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is an interferometer- based imaging modality with a high resolution and its usefulness has recently attracted much attention in cardiovascular medicine.1–3 We have recently shown that OCT is useful in the management of pulmonary hypertension, not only for diagnosis but also for evaluation of treatment.4 Here, we show that OCT is also useful to document regression of pulmonary arterial remodeling in response to medical treatment. A 35-year-old woman with an 18-year history of Sjögren syndrome treated with oral prednisolone had a 4-year history of shortness of breath on exertion. On her first ...

    6. Drug-eluting stent implantation in patients with acute coronary syndrome - the Activity of Platelets after Inhibition and Cardiovascular Events: Optical Coherence Tomography (APICE OCT) study

      Drug-eluting stent implantation in patients with acute coronary syndrome - the Activity of Platelets after Inhibition and Cardiovascular Events: Optical Coherence Tomography (APICE OCT) study

      Aims: To our knowledge, no randomised study has compared rates of uncovered stent struts in everolimus (EES) vs. new-generation zotarolimus-eluting (ZES-R) stents in acute coronary syndrome (ACS). The aim of our study was to evaluate the completeness of neointimal coverage with optical coherence tomography (OCT) in ACS patients treated with drug-eluting stents (DES) comparing EES versus new-generation ZES-R. Methods and results: All eligible ACS patients admitted to four Italian centres with a clinical indication for culprit lesion intervention were randomised 1:1 to EES or ZES-R. The primary study endpoint was the percentage of uncovered stent struts evaluated by optical ...

    7. Comparison by Optical Coherence Tomography of the Frequency of Lipid Coronary Plaques in Current Smokers, Former Smokers, and Non-smokers

      Comparison by Optical Coherence Tomography of the Frequency of Lipid Coronary Plaques in Current Smokers, Former Smokers, and Non-smokers

      Smoking is associated with high incidence of cardiovascular events including acute coronary syndrome (ACS). We sought to characterize coronary plaques in patients with ongoing smoking using optical coherence tomography (OCT) compared to former smokers and nonsmokers. We identified 465 coronary plaques from 182 subjects who underwent OCT imaging for all three coronary arteries. Subjects were divided into 3 groups: current smokers (n=41), former smokers (n=67) and nonsmokers (n=74). OCT analysis included the presence of lipid rich plaque, thin-cap fibroatheroma (TCFA), calcification, maximum lipid arc, lipid core length, lipid index, and fibrous cap thickness (FCT). Lipid index was ...

      David W. Kolstad in St. Jude Medical to Acquire LightLab Imaging for $90M in Cash
    3. St. Jude Medical's acquisition of LightLab confirms the validity and potential utility of this leading edge technology...We are planning a best-in-class OCT solution. We currently have CE Mark in Europe on our first generation platform, and we are targeting a release of our second generation platform in Europe early next year. We anticipate that this system will incorporate a smaller catheter, shorter prep time, faster pullback speed, and a longer imaging segment than the current device.
