Coronary OCT: A Case-based Approach

ISBN: 978935696390020241/e

Key Features

  • This book illustrates many case-based detailed descriptions of Angio and OCT images with attached video files for a comprehensive understanding of the concept of intravascular OCT imaging while performing coronary interventional procedures.
  • The authors took extreme care in choosing cases to narrate the importance of OCT imaging in assessing plaque morphology, lesion length, and diameter for each case to use an appropriate pre-PCI modification strategy.
  • Moreover, it highlights the importance of detecting medial edge dissections and malapposition to improve future DES implantation outcomes.
  • Emphasizes the usefulness of imaging in various complex high-risk subsets of imaging in addition to simple PCI like ISR, ST, bifurcation lesions, multivessel PCI, PCI of diffuse long lesions, plaque modification and PCI of calcified coronary arteries.
  • Mainly focuses on developing concepts in reading and interpreting OCT images to make it a more user-friendly manual for those who are inclined to learn and practice OCT imaging in cathlab.

      Description

      Current evidence based on recently published studies suggest image guided PCI over Angio guided PCI is associated with improved outcomes, and it is the need of the hour to all interventional cardiologists to know about intravascular imaging to maintain high standard health care practice to provide the best possible outcome to their patients. Image guided PCI is very useful in the pre PCI assessment of plaque, deciding appropriate plaque modification strategy, and sizing of balloons and stents. Post PCI optimization of DES is mainly to identifying and rectifying edge dissection, under-expansion and apposition which are associated with acute and long-term outcomes. OCT due to its high-resolution 3D images helpful in detailed assessment of vessel wall characteristics – type of plaque, plaque burden and identifying vulnerable plaque which is prone for plaque rupture, dissection, and intra & extra mural hematomas. OCT also differentiates intraluminal masses like thrombus (red & white), recanalized thrombus, CN, stent struts, position of guidewires (abluminal position, in relation to stent struts (proximal Vs distal strut crossing) and entrapped broken balloon shafts, guidewires and other intravascular foreign bodies which are very helpful in optimizing PCI results.
