    3. Early and late optical coherence tomography findings following everolimus-eluting bioresorbable vascular scaffold implantation in myocardial infarction: a preliminary report

      Early and late optical coherence tomography findings following everolimus-eluting bioresorbable vascular scaffold implantation in myocardial infarction: a preliminary report

      Introduction: Although bioresorbable vascular scaffolds (BVS) have been used with promising results in patients with stable and unstable angina, little is known about the acute vascular response following BVS implantation in myocardial infarction. We present angiographic and OCT findings from the first patients undergoing bioresorbable vascular scaffold (BVS) implantation for non-ST-elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI) or ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) in our institution. Methods: The first 5 patients with NSTEMI and the first 5 patients with STEMI who underwent BVS implantation in our institution, followed by optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging of the treated culprit vessel, were included in this series ...

    5. Frequency domain optical coherence tomography to assess non-ostial left main coronary artery

      Frequency domain optical coherence tomography to assess non-ostial left main coronary artery

      Aims: The aim of this study was to assess the feasibility of unprotected non-ostial left main (LM) imaging by frequency domain optical coherence tomography (FD-OCT). Methods and results: We conducted a retrospective analysis of OCT studies performed to image lesions located in the non-ostial LM. OCT studies were analysed to detect the number of artefact frames in the different LM/bifurcation segments. OCT cross-sectional images were used to assess area measures. OCT longitudinal reconstructions were used to obtain the LM length. Standard quantitative coronary angiography (QCA) was used as the reference methodology. A total of 54 patients with non-ostial LM ...

    6. Dynamic assessment of the endothelialization of tissue-engineered blood vessels using an OCT catheter-based fluorescence imaging system

      Dynamic assessment of the endothelialization of tissue-engineered blood vessels using an OCT catheter-based fluorescence imaging system

      Background: Lumen endothelialization of bioengineered vascular scaffolds is essential to maintain small-diameter graft patency and prevent thrombosis post implantation. Unfortunately non-destructive imaging methods to visualize this dynamic process are lacking, thus slowing development and clinical translation of these potential tissue-engineering approaches. To meet this need, a fluorescence imaging system utilizing a commercial optical coherence tomography (OCT) catheter was designed to visualize graft endothelialization. Methods: DragonFly C7 intravascular OCT catheter was used as a channel for delivery and collection of excitation and emission spectra. Poly-DL-lactide (PDLLA) electrospun scaffolds were seeded with endothelial cells. Seeded cells were exposed to Calcein AM prior ...

    7. Co-registration of Optical Coherence Tomography and X-ray Angiography in Percutaneous Coronary Intervention. The Does Optical Coherence Tomography Optimize Revascularization (DOCTOR) Fusion Study

      Co-registration of Optical Coherence Tomography and X-ray Angiography in Percutaneous Coronary Intervention. The Does Optical Coherence Tomography Optimize Revascularization (DOCTOR) Fusion Study

      Background Intracoronary imaging provides accurate lesion delineation and precise measurements for sizing and positioning of coronary stents. During percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), it may be challenging to identify corresponding segments between intracoronary imaging and angiography. Computer based online co-registration may aid the target segment identification. Methods The DOCTOR Fusion study was a prospective, single arm, observational study including patients admitted for elective PCI. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) was acquired pre-stent implantation for sizing of stents. The operator subsequently indicated on the angiogram the target area as identified by OCT. Computer based co-registration was performed on-line immediately after pre-stent acquisition to ...

    8. Quantitative Optical Coherence Tomography Analysis for Late In-Stent Restenotic Lesions

      Quantitative Optical Coherence Tomography Analysis for Late In-Stent Restenotic Lesions

      Coronary optical coherence tomography (OCT) has the potential to identify in-stent neoatherosclerosis, which is a possible risk factor for late acute coronary events after drug-eluting stent implantation. The purpose of this study was to investigate differences between mid-term and late in-stent restenosis after stent implantation by quantitative and semiautomated tissue property analysis using OCT. In total, 1063 OCT image frames of 16 lesions in 15 patients were analyzed. This included 346 frames of 6 lesions in late in-stent restenosis, which was defined as restenosis that was not detected at 6 to 12 months but ≥ 12 months after follow-up coronary angiography ...
