Mechanisms of stent thrombosis analysed by optical coherence tomography: insights from the national PESTO French registry

na1
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.

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.

Very late stent thrombosis related to incomplete neointimal coverage or neoatherosclerotic plaque rupture identified by optical coherence tomography imaging.

AIMS : Recent data have reported that neoatherosclerosis could develop long after stent implantation and lead to subsequent rupture and acute coronary syndrome (ACS). We sought to identify the presence of in-stent neoatheroma (ISNA) in patients with very late stent thrombosis (VLST) using optical coherence tomography (OCT).
