    4. Impact of Age on Stent Strut Coverage and Neointimal Remodeling as Assessed by Optical Coherence Tomography

      Impact of Age on Stent Strut Coverage and Neointimal Remodeling as Assessed by Optical Coherence Tomography
      Abstract: While older age associates with adverse percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) outcomes, detailed information relating age to stent strut coverage and neointimal characteristics is lacking. One hundred nineteen patients with 123 sirolimus-eluting stents (SESs) were divided into 3 groups: group A (55 years), group B (5665 years), and group C (65 years). At 6 and 12 months of follow-up, optical coherence tomography was performed to assess strut coverage and neointimal ...

    6. ILUMIEN II Raises Questions as to What OCT Offers Over IVUS

      ILUMIEN II Raises Questions as to What OCT Offers Over IVUS
      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) and intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) guidance each result in comparable levels of stent expansion, according to post-hoc analysis of 2 prospective studies dubbed ILUMIEN II. On IVUS, the strongest predictor of early stent thrombosis and restenosis is the absolute degree of stent expansion, Gregg W. Stone, MD, of Columbia University Medical Center (New York, NY), and colleagues write in their paper published in the November 2015 issue ...

    7. Stent visualization and malapposition detection systems, devices, and methods

      Stent visualization and malapposition detection systems, devices, and methods
      In part, the invention relates to computer-based methods, devices, and systems suitable for displaying stent malapposition in a 2-D or 3-D image. A threshold malapposition distance can be set as an input in response to which a software component in an imaging pipeline automatically detects stent struts and calculates a malapposition distance from a lumen contour. Projections of stent strut dimensions can be used to compensate for stent imaging artifacts ...

      Lumen morphology image reconstruction based on the scan line data of OCT
      A method and apparatus of automatically locating in an image of a blood vessel the lumen boundary at a position in the vessel and from that measuring the diameter of the vessel. From the diameter of the vessel and estimated blood flow rate, a number of clinically significant physiological parameters are then determined and various user displays of interest generated. One use of these images and parameters is to aid ...
