    2. Hazy filling defect on coronary angiography: insights from optical coherence tomography

      Hazy filling defect on coronary angiography: insights from optical coherence tomography
      A middle-aged patient with previous stent to the left circumflex artery (LCx) 12 months before suffering from angina, now presented with acute-onset severe retrosternal chest pain with an ECG showing ST-elevation in the precordial leads (see online supplementary figure S1). He underwent emergency coronary angiography, which showed normal flow in all arteries and a patent LCx stent. The left anterior descending artery (LAD) contained a hazy filling defect in the ...

    3. Assessment of Macular Parameter Changes in Patients with Keratoconus Using Optical Coherence Tomography

      Assessment of Macular Parameter Changes in Patients with Keratoconus Using Optical Coherence Tomography
      Keratoconus is typically diagnosed through changes at the anterior ocular surface. However, we wished to assess if macular parameter changes might also occur in these patients. We assessed posterior changes through the use of optical coherence tomography and compared to a nonkeratoconus patient group. All subjects underwent clinical examination including macular thickness measurements. The generalized estimation equation model was used to estimate the means and compare the differences in various ...

    4. Stromal Bed Thickness Measurement During Laser in Situ Keratomileusis Using Intraoperative Optical Coherence Tomography

      Stromal Bed Thickness Measurement During Laser in Situ Keratomileusis Using Intraoperative Optical Coherence Tomography
      Purpose: The aim of this study was to compare repeatability and agreement of stromal bed thickness (SBT) measurements with intraoperative spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) and ultrasound pachymetry (USP). Methods: The SBT was measured in 14 eyes of 14 patients during femtosecond laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK). Intraoperative SD-OCT was positioned on the eye to acquire images after creation of LASIK flaps. Patients were then asked to sit in ...

    6. Bivalirudin versus unfractionated heparin for residual thrombus burden: A frequency-domain optical coherence tomography study

      Bivalirudin versus unfractionated heparin for residual thrombus burden: A frequency-domain optical coherence tomography study
      Objectives: This study aimed to compare the effect of bivalirudin and unfractionated heparin (UFH) on residual thrombus burden assessed by frequency-domain optical coherence tomography (FD-OCT), and on angiographic indices of microvascular obstruction (MVO). Background: The efficacy of bivalirudin to inhibit thrombus formation inside the stent during percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI) as compared to UFH is unknown. Methods: Sixty patients with coronary artery disease who underwent post-PCI FD-OCT were studied, including ...

      Simultaneous single-vessel plaque rupture causing acute coronary syndrome detected by optical coherence tomography
      A 67-year-old male presented with non-ST segment elevation myocardial infarction accompanied by inferior electrocardiogram (ECG) changes. Coronary angiography demonstrated a dominant right coronary artery (RCA) with two discrete regions of angiographic haziness, suggesting possible plaque ulceration and the presence of thrombus ( Panel A ). Prior studies have demonstrated non-culprit plaque rupture in acute myocardial infarction patients; however,

    9. Intraoperative Pachymetry Using Spectral-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography during Accelerated Corneal Collagen Crosslinking

      Intraoperative Pachymetry Using Spectral-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography during Accelerated Corneal Collagen Crosslinking
      paccelerated corneal crosslinking (CXL). Methods. Intraoperative pachymetry was performed using SDOCT and ultrasound pachymetry (USP) in 6 eyes of 6 patients with keratoconus. Pachymetry readings were obtained at baseline, after epithelium removal and after 30 minutes of riboflavin instillation. SDOCT measurements of eyes with and without lid speculum during riboflavin instillation were compared. Results. There was no statistically significant difference in central corneal thickness (CCT) measurements between SDOCT and USP (

    10. The invasive assessment of coronary atherosclerosis and stents using optical coherence tomography: a clinical update

      The invasive assessment of coronary atherosclerosis and stents using optical coherence tomography: a clinical update
      Ischaemic heart disease (IHD) remains one of the leading causes of death. Atherosclerosis has been intensely researched given the IHD prevalence and the financial impacts on healthcare systems. More recently, in vivo characterisation of coronary atherosclerotic plaque and tissue responses following stent implantation in a coronary artery has been made possible by a novel technology called optical coherence tomography (OCT). OCT is a light-based, invasive, intracoronary imaging modality long applied ...

  2. About University of Melbourne

    University of Melbourne

    University of Melbourne, is a public university located in Melbourne, Victoria. The second oldest university in Australia, and the oldest in Victoria, its main campus is in Parkville, an inner suburb just north of the Melbourne CBD. Other campuses across Melbourne and rural Victoria have been acquired through amalgamation with smaller colleges of advanced education. It is a member of Australia's "Group of Eight" lobby group, and the Sandstone universities. Melbourne University is ranked amongst the top universities both in Australia and the world. The University is highly regarded in the fields of the arts, humanities, and biomedicine. The University has almost 40,000 students, who are supported by nearly 6,000 staff members (full or part-time).
