    3. In-stent restenosis associated with stent malapposition: Seven year optical coherence tomography findings

      In-stent restenosis associated with stent malapposition: Seven year optical coherence tomography findings
      Abstract: Stent thrombosis and in-stent restenosis remain significant issues in post-coronary angioplasty care despite advances in anti-platelet therapy and stent technology. Angiographic predictors of stent failure have been proposed, but its precise mechanism has been difficult to elucidate on conventional coronary angiography and intravascular ultrasound due to the low resolution of either approach. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) as a high-resolution intracoronary imaging modality has enabled more detailed insight into the ...

    6. Sensitivity of confocal laser tomography versus optical coherence tomography in detecting advanced glaucoma

      Sensitivity of confocal laser tomography versus optical coherence tomography in detecting advanced glaucoma
      Purpose: To determine the sensitivity of manufacturer supported normative algorithms in Heidelberg retinal tomography (HRT) and Stratus optical coherence tomography (OCT) in detecting advanced primary open angle glaucoma. Methods: A total of 157 subjects with advanced primary open angle glaucoma were recruited. The eye with the more severe glaucoma, as judged by mean deviation on Humphrey visual field, was imaged. The total number of optic disc sectors classified as being ...

    7. Optical coherence tomography assessment of a new dedicated bifurcation stent

      Optical coherence tomography assessment of a new dedicated bifurcation stent
      Dedicated bifurcation stents should facilitate deployment and improved coverage of bifurcational lesions. We used optical coherence tomography (OCT) to assess bifurcation lesions treated with a dedicated stent implanted in the side branch (SB) in conjunction with drug eluting stents in the main vessel (MV) in a culotte-like fashion.

    8. Use of optical coherence tomography in interventional cardiology

      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) has offered a greater understanding of coronary atherosclerosis with the ability to visualize plaque and quantify the thin, fibrous cap. Furthermore, OCT is able to traverse many of the limitations of angiography and intravascular ultrasound when imaging coronary stents in vivo. These applications are as a result of the use of near-infrared light, permitting an almost ‘histological’ resolution of the coronary artery. Novel developments with faster ...

    9. Optical Coherence Tomography. Ancient Topics, Modern Perspectives

      Optical Coherence Tomography. Ancient Topics, Modern Perspectives
      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is an intracoronary diagnostic technique recently applied in clinical practice that provides high-quality, highresolution (10-20 μm, compared to 80-120 μm with intracoronary ultrasound) cross-sectional images of the vessels. This technique provides valuable information on the characterization of plaques, the mechanisms implicated in thrombosis or restenosis of coronary stents, and relevant information to optimize the results of coronary interventional procedures. One of the

    10. Relationship of Retinal Vascular Caliber with Optic Disc and Macular Structure

      Purpose To examine the relationships of retinal vascular caliber with optic disc, macular, and retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) characteristics as measured with optical coherence tomography (OCT). Design Observational cross-sectional study. Methods This study included a subset of healthy children enrolled in the Singapore Cohort Study of the Risk Factors of Myopia (SCORM). Optic disc, macular, and RNFL morphology were measured with Stratus OCT 3. Digital retinal photography was performed ...

    11. A Multicentre Evaluation of the Safety of Intra-Coronary Optical Coherence Tomography

      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is increasingly being applied to the coronary arteries. However, the risks associated with the imaging procedure are not yet well defined. The purpose of the present multicentre registry was to access the acute complicaitons associated with the clinical use of intera-coronary OCT in a large number of patients.

    12. Incomplete Stent Apposition and Delayed Tissue Coverage Are More Frequent in Drug-Eluting Stents Implanted During Primary Percutaneous Coronary Intervention for ST-Segment Elevation Myocardial Infarction Than in Drug-Eluting Stents Implanted for Stable/Un

      Objectives The aim of this study was to compare the frequency of incomplete stent apposition (ISA) and struts not covered by tissue at long-term follow-up (as assessed by optical coherence tomography [OCT]) in drug-eluting stents (DES) implanted during primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) versus DES implanted for unstable and stable angina. Background Incomplete stent apposition and the absence of strut endothelialization might be linked ...

    13. A Randomized Optical Coherence Tomography Study of Coronary Stent Strut Coverage and Luminal Protrusion With Rapamycin-Eluting Stents

      Objectives We used optical coherence tomography, which has a resolution of 10% of struts being uncovered. High-resolution imaging allowed development of the concept of the protrusion index, and >25% of struts protruded into the vessel lumen with the polymer-coated rapamycin-eluting stent compared with <5% with the nonpolymer rapamycin-eluting stent. These findings may have important implications for the risk of stent thrombosis and, therefore, future stent design. (An optical coherence tomography ...

    14. Macular thickness, retinal thickness, and optic disk parameters in dominant compared with nondominant eyes

      Purpose To determine whether differences exist in morphological structures of dominant and nondominant eyes in children ages 6 or 12 years. The following structural features were assessed: axial length, refraction, corneal radius of curvature, and retinal features—measured with the use of optical coherence tomography (OCT)—including macular and retinal nerve fiber layer thickness and optic disk parameters. Methods Of 4,118 children examined from 2003 to 2005 in the ...

    15. Intracoronary optical coherence tomography and the evaluation of stents

      The application of optical coherence tomography to the cardiovascular system has led to intense interest, both clinically and also on the research front. Based on sound optical physics, intracoronary, in vivo imaging with high resolution (15 µm) has given unique insights into not only atherosclerotic plaques but also the tissue responses underlying stent implantation. This article will introduce the application of optical coherence tomography technology to coronary arteries, with particular ...
