BACKGROUND: No randomized study has investigated the value of optical coherence tomography (OCT) in optimizing the results of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for non–ST-segment elevation acute coronary syndromes.
METHODS: We conducted a multicenter, randomized study involving 240 patients with non–ST-segment elevation acute coronary syndromes to compare OCT-guided PCI (use of OCT pre- and post-PCI; OCT-guided group) to fluoroscopy-guided PCI (angiography-guided group).

STEMI in post partum: how can OCT be helpful?

Hôpital Cochin, Paris
A 38 years old woman was admitted to our department by mobile care unit for chest pain at day 7 of post partum.
Her medical history included only gestational diabetes and a smoking habit.
She experienced chest pain at rest, while waking up and called for medical assistance. ECG revealed a ST elevation in anterior lead, therefore the patient was referred to the cath lab for coronary angiography.

A 66 year-old man , with previous history of diabetes mellitus and hypertension was admitted for an unstable angina.
The initial coronary angiography (6Fr catheter) showed a distal LM to proximal LAD tight lesion and no lesion on RCA.

Cardiology Department, CHU Clermont-Ferrand
A 59 year-old man is admitted in our institution for a first STEMI
His medical history includes a previous ischemic stroke with residual hemiplegia, dyslipidemia and previous smoking.
The diagnosis is made by mobile care unit physicians at H4 . Initial EKG depict ST elevation in the anterior leads. The patient is referred to our cath lab for emergent coronary angiography Cliquez pour voir plus :: Click to see more CASE OF THE MONTH : JANUARY
Aims: angiography has limited value for identifying the causes of stent thrombosis (ST). We studied a large cohort of patients by optical coherence tomography (OCT) to explore ST characteristics and mechanisms.
