An analogue laser optical disc in comparison with cinefilm for visual analysis of coronary narrowings before and after coronary angioplasty

Abstract

This study evaluated an analogue laser optical disc (MVP) as an alternative for cinefilm angiography in the visual analysis of coronary angiograms. Visual analysis was performed independently by 5 observers using cinefilm and MVP before and after PTCA (194 coronary lesions in 88 patients) and the outcomes were compared with QCA. The mean percentage diameter… (More)
