A prospective natural-history study of coronary atherosclerosis.
BACKGROUND Atherosclerotic plaques that lead to acute coronary syndromes often occur at sites of angiographically mild coronary-artery stenosis. Lesion-related risk factors for such events are poorlyExpand
Consensus standards for acquisition, measurement, and reporting of intravascular optical coherence tomography studies: a report from the International Working Group for Intravascular Optical
OBJECTIVES The purpose of this document is to make the output of the International Working Group for Intravascular Optical Coherence Tomography (IWG-IVOCT) Standardization and Validation available toExpand
Intracoronary abciximab and aspiration thrombectomy in patients with large anterior myocardial infarction: the INFUSE-AMI randomized trial.
CONTEXT Thrombus embolization during percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) is common and results in suboptimal myocardial perfusion andExpand
Optical coherence tomography compared with intravascular ultrasound and with angiography to guide coronary stent implantation (ILUMIEN III: OPTIMIZE PCI): a randomised controlled trial
BACKGROUND Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) is most commonly guided by angiography alone. Intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) guidance has been shown to reduce major adverse cardiovascular eventsExpand
Ischemic outcomes after coronary intervention of calcified vessels in acute coronary syndromes. Pooled analysis from the HORIZONS-AMI (Harmonizing Outcomes With Revascularization and Stents in Acute
OBJECTIVES This study sought to determine the frequency and impact of coronary calcification among patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for acute coronary syndromes (ACS). Expand
Coronary artery calcification: pathogenesis and prognostic implications.
Coronary artery calcification (CAC) is a risk factor for adverse outcomes in the general population and in patients with coronary artery disease. The pathogenesis of CAC and bone formation shareExpand
Relationship Between Intravascular Ultrasound Guidance and Clinical Outcomes After Drug-Eluting Stents: The Assessment of Dual Antiplatelet Therapy With Drug-Eluting Stents (ADAPT-DES) Study
Background— Prior small to modest-sized studies suggest a benefit of intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) guidance in noncomplex lesions. Whether IVUS guidance is associated with improved clinicalExpand
Relationship Between Infarct Size and Outcomes Following Primary PCI: Patient-Level Analysis From 10 Randomized Trials.
BACKGROUND Prompt reperfusion in patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) reduces infarct size and improves survival. However, the intuitive link between infarct size andExpand
Morphologic and angiographic features of coronary plaque rupture detected by intravascular ultrasound.
OBJECTIVES This study was designed to report the clinical and angiographic correlates of plaque rupture detected by intravascular ultrasound (IVUS). BACKGROUND Acute coronary syndromes result fromExpand
The dynamic nature of coronary artery lesion morphology assessed by serial virtual histology intravascular ultrasound tissue characterization.
OBJECTIVES We used virtual histology intravascular ultrasound (VH-IVUS) to investigate the natural history of coronary artery lesion morphology. BACKGROUND Plaque stability is related to itsExpand
