    2. 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 ...

    3. 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 ...

    5. Local Determinants and Clinical Significance of Thrombus Formation Following Sirolimus-Eluting Stent Implantation: Insights from Optical Coherence Tomography Analysis

      Angioscopic analyses have shown the presence of subclinical thrombus in sirolimus-eluting stents (SES) is more common than the clinical incidence of stent thrombosis. However, the determinants and long term significance of subclinical thrombus remain unknown. Thirty five patients (44 stents) who received SES underwent 6 months follow-up optical coherence tomography (OCT). Patients were divided into 2 groups according to the presence of thrombus by OCT. Cross-sectional images were analyzed every ...

    6. Very late thrombosis of sirolimus-eluting stent due to late malapposition: Serial observations with optical coherence tomography

      A 54 years old man underwent directional coronary atherectomy in segment 7 with a partial deep-cut injury. A sirolimus-eluting stent (SES) was implanted at the restenosed post-atherectomy lesion. Six months after SES implantation, intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) examination revealed slight vessel enlargement although there were no malapposed struts. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) revealed partial stent malapposition. Ticlopidine was discontinued 3 months after SES implantation, but aspirin was continued. Twenty-nine months after ...

    7. Feasibility of combined use of intravascular ultrasound radiofrequency data analysis and optical coherence tomography for detecting thin-cap fibroatheroma

      Aims To evaluate the feasibility of the combined use of virtual histology (VH)-intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) and optical coherence tomography (OCT) for detecting in vivo thin-cap fibroatheroma (TCFA). Methods and results In 56 patients with angina, 126 plaques identified by IVUS findings were analysed using both VH-IVUS and OCT. IVUS-derived TCFA was defined as an abundant necrotic core (>10% of the cross-sectional area) in contact with the lumen (NCCL) and ...
