Optical frequency domain imaging for guidance of optimal stenting in the setting of recanalization of chronic total occlusion


Jaguszewski, Milosz; Guagliumi, Giulio; Landmesser, Ulf (2013). Optical frequency domain imaging for guidance of optimal stenting in the setting of recanalization of chronic total occlusion. Journal of Invasive Cardiology, 25(7):367-368.

Abstract

We present an interesting case illustrating how coronary optical frequency domain imaging (OFDI) examination can be used to guide revascularization of a complex chronic total occlusion (CTO) in a patient presenting to our hospital with a 2-year history of angina, dyspnea, and a positive treadmill test. This case demonstrates the potential clinical role of high-resolution OFDI to optimize coronary stent implantation. OFDI may help to limit the coronary area covered by stents to the true coronary lesion.
