    2. Ability of Optical Coherence Tomography to Visualize the Entry Port of Spontaneous Coronary Artery Dissection

      Ability of Optical Coherence Tomography to Visualize the Entry Port of Spontaneous Coronary Artery Dissection
      A 51-year-old man was admitted to a local hospital with sudden onset of severe back pain diagnosed as acute type A aortic dissection on contrast computed tomography (CT). The patient was transferred to Kobe University Hospital and underwent total arch replacement. He had no cardiac risk factors except for obesity, and no connective tissue disorders or clinical features of Marfan syndrome. From the intraoperative findings, the entry of the aortic ...

    4. Paclitaxel-coated balloon study: quantitative coronary angiography and optical coherence tomography evaluation in a swine in-stent stenosis model

      Paclitaxel-coated balloon study: quantitative coronary angiography and optical coherence tomography evaluation in a swine in-stent stenosis model
      Drug-coated balloons (DCBs) have shown efficacy for treatment of coronary artery disease. In the PEPCAD II ISR trial, paclitaxel-coated balloon (PCB) reduced in-stent restenosis (ISR) compared with paclitaxel-eluting stent (PES). Here we evaluated the efficacy of PCB in a porcine ISR model.

    5. Ruptured-Plaque-Like Appearance of Restenotic Tissue Following Sirolimus-Eluting Stent Implantation: An Optical Coherence Tomography Case Study

      Ruptured-Plaque-Like Appearance of Restenotic Tissue Following Sirolimus-Eluting Stent Implantation: An Optical Coherence Tomography Case Study
      A 57-year-old man was admitted for exertional angina pectoris. Coronary angiography showed a 99% stenosis in the left circumflex artery. A sirolimus-eluting stent was deployed in the culprit lesion and excellent angiographic results were obtained. Six-month routine follow-up coronary angiography showed a 90% focal restenosis at the proximal edge of the stent. At this site, optical coherence tomography imaging revealed restenotic tissue with a ruptured-plaque-like appearance overlying the stent struts ...

    6. Optical coherence evaluation for everolimus-eluting stents at 8 months after implantation

      Optical coherence evaluation for everolimus-eluting stents at 8 months after implantation
      Objective The aim of this study was to evaluate detailed vessel response after everolimus-eluting stents (EES) implantation in human de novo coronary lesions by optical coherence tomography (OCT). Design, setting and patients Between November 2008 and October 2009, 25 patients (14 men, 65.5±8.6 years) with de novo native coronary artery lesions were implanted with 30 EES, and OCT was performed at 8 months post-implantation. Main Outcome Measures ...

    8. Comparison by Optical Coherence Tomography of Paclitaxel-Eluting Stents With Sirolimus-Eluting Stents Implanted in One Coronary Artery in One Procedure: 6-Month Follow-up

      Comparison by Optical Coherence Tomography of Paclitaxel-Eluting Stents With Sirolimus-Eluting Stents Implanted in One Coronary Artery in One Procedure: 6-Month Follow-up
      Differences between paclitaxel-eluting stents (PES) and sirolimus-eluting stent (SES) in neointimal proliferation under strictly matched conditions remain to be clarified by optical coherence tomography (OCT). Methods and Results: Between May and December 2007, 27 patients were implanted with a PES and a SES, randomized to either the proximal or distal site in a single coronary artery, and underwent follow-up angiography and OCT examination at 6 months. The frequency of vessel ...

    9. Evaluation of the Peri-strut Low Intensity Area Following Sirolimus- and Paclitaxel-Eluting Stents Implantation: Insights From an Optical Coherence Tomography Study in Humans

      Evaluation of the Peri-strut Low Intensity Area Following Sirolimus- and Paclitaxel-Eluting Stents Implantation: Insights From an Optical Coherence Tomography Study in Humans
      Background: In previous pathological studies, paclitaxel-eluting stents (PES) showed greater fibrin deposition around stent struts, while sirolimus-eluting stent (SES) showed predominance of inflammatory cells with less fibrin deposition than PES. However, there are limited in-vivo data clarifying those qualitative differences in the process of vascular healing after 1st-generation drug-eluting stents (DES) implantation. A recent animal study has shown that peri-strut low intensity area (PLIA) seen in optical coherence tomography (OCT ...

    10. Factors That Influence Measurements and Accurate Evaluation of Stent Apposition by Optical Coherence Tomography

      Factors That Influence Measurements and Accurate Evaluation of Stent Apposition by Optical Coherence Tomography
      kground: Factors influencing measurements and accurate evaluation of stent apposition by optical coherence tomography (OCT) are not established. Methods and Results: Phantom models of known luminal sizes and lengths were evaluated by OCT under various conditions and measurements were compared with actual values. Stents implanted into phantom models were examined by OCT to validate the measurement point on the stent strut surface for accurate evaluation of stent apposition. Strut thickness ...

      Feature Of The Week 6/14/09: Assessing Sirolimus-Eluting Stent Implantation by Optical Coherence Tomography
      Feature Of The Week 6/14/09: Heart disease is a leading cause of death in the industrialize world. Since the early 1990's when the Palmaz bare medal stent was introduced, stents have continued to play a major role in the treatment of heart disease. The stent market is over $5B and there is intense pressure to improve stent technology from both a healthcare and market share perspective. Optical ...

    13. Low plasma adiponectin levels are associated with presence of thin-cap fibroatheroma in men with stable coronary artery disease

      Abstract: Background: Previous studies demonstrated the inverse association of adiponectin with coronary artery disease (CAD) especially in men with acute coronary syndrome, however their association with in vivo plaque vulnerability in stable CAD, which may be reflected by the thin-cap fibroatheroma (TCFA) prevalence, remains unknown.Methods: In 50 men with stable CAD, we identified TCFA with multi-vessel examination of combined use of virtual histology intravascular ultrasound (VH-IVUS) and optical coherence ...

    14. Delayed Neointimalization on Sirolimus-Eluting Stents: 6-Month and 12-Month Follow up by Optical Coherence Tomography

      Background: Sirolimus-eluting stents (SES) have incomplete neointimal coverage at 6-month follow up as determined with optical coherence tomography (OCT). The long-term detailed changes of neointima in SES remains to be clarified. Methods and Results: Serial changes in neointimal coverage of SES from 6 months to 12 months using OCT were examined. Of 21 SES in 13 patients, OCT was used to visualize 2,321 stent struts at 6 months and ...
