    2. Calcified plaque ablated by rotational atherectomy visualised by optical coherence tomography

      Calcified plaque ablated by rotational atherectomy visualised by optical coherence tomography
      This paper also includes accompanying supplementary data published online at: http://www.pcronline.com/eurointervention/86th_issue/62 Calcification is visualised by optical coherence tomography (OCT) as a well-delineated, signal-poor region with sharp borders. A 63-year-old female patient with stable angina underwent percutaneous coronary intervention. OCT (C7 Dragonfly, ILUMIEN OCT system; St. Jude Medical, St. Paul, MN, USA) showed lumen narrowing with heavily calcified plaque (Figure 1A) . Rotational atherectomy (RA) was ...

    3. A unique feature of thin flat thrombus visualised by optical coherence tomography

      A unique feature of thin flat thrombus visualised by optical coherence tomography
      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) has recently been developed as a high-resolution intravascular imaging modality, detecting small abnormal structures in the coronary lumen that could not be visualised by intravascular ultrasound (IVUS). A 77-year-old man died with acute myelogenous leukemia. After he died, the coronary artery was imaged by OCT (ImageWire; LightLab Imaging, Westford, MA, USA) and IVUS (Atlantis SR Pro, 40 MHz; Boston Scientific, Natick, MA, USA). OCT clearly demonstrated ...

    4. Natural History of Stent Edge Dissection, Tissue Protrusion and Incomplete Stent Apposition Detectable Only on Optical Coherence Tomography After Stent Implantation

      Natural History of Stent Edge Dissection, Tissue Protrusion and Incomplete Stent Apposition Detectable Only on Optical Coherence Tomography After Stent Implantation
      Background: The clinical impact of stent edge dissection, tissue protrusion, and incomplete stent apposition (ISA) after stent implantation, detectable only on optical coherence tomography (OCT), is still unknown because the natural course has not been investigated. Methods and Results: All consecutive patients with angina pectoris in whom both intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) and OCT were performed immediately after stenting and at follow-up were included in the present study. The natural history ...

    6. Frequency and Spatial Distribution of Thin-Cap Fibroatheroma Assessed by 3-Vessel Intravascular Ultrasound and Optical Coherence Tomography: An Ex Vivo Validation and an Initial In Vivo Feasibility Study

      Frequency and Spatial Distribution of Thin-Cap Fibroatheroma Assessed by 3-Vessel Intravascular Ultrasound and Optical Coherence Tomography: An Ex Vivo Validation and an Initial In Vivo Feasibility Study
      Background: The precursor of plaque rupture is known as thin cap fibroatheroma (TCFA). In the present study, the feasibility and accuracy of optical coherence tomography (OCT) for detecting the frequency and spatial distribution of TCFA was investigated ex vivo, and a 3-vessel OCT analysis was conducted to assess the feasibility of this modality in vivo. Methods and Results: In the ex vivo study, 108 coronary arterial segments from 38 human ...
