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).

Imagerie endocoronaire par cohérence optique : OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography) ou OFDI (Optical Frequency Domain Imaging)

La tomographie par cohérence optique (OCT pour Optical Coherence Tomography) est une imagerie endocoronaire de très haute résolution (10 microns) susceptible de résoudre des ambiguïtés morphologiques rencontrées en Cardiologie Interventionnelle.

ABSTRACT

Aims: To assess whether a strategy of invasive management without stents in selected acute coronary syndrome (ACS) patients with a large thrombus burden (LTB) might be feasible and safe.
