Optical frequency domain imaging (OFDI) is a novel second generation optical coherence tomography (OCT) derived imaging method [1]. It has substantially higher speed of image acquisition compared to first generation time domain OCT. OFDI can allow rapid imaging for detection of coronary strut coverage with a much higher precision compared to intravascular ultrasound. Axial resolution of OFDI is in the range of 10-20 microns. OPINION trial compared optical frequency domain imaging vs. intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) in percutaneous coronary intervention [2]. It was a prospective, multicentre, randomised, active-controlled...

CONCLUSIONS: A steady trend of AMI incidence was observed over the past 11 years in the Tokyo metropolitan area. In-hospital mortality decreased slightly but significantly, with the establishment of primary percutaneous coronary intervention. PMID: 31006733 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSIONS: Persistent impairment of endothelial vasomotor function in the conduit arterial segment and the resistance arteriole was related to atheromatous plaque progression in the infarct-related coronary arteries of STEMI survivors. PMID: 30996201 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

ThomasObjectiveTo compare long-term outcomes between black and white patients after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) with drug-eluting stent (DES) implantation.BackgroundSome studies suggest that black patients may have worse outcomes after DES placement. There is limited data characterizing long-term outcomes by race.MethodsWe analyzed 915 black and 3559 white (n = 4474) consecutive patients who underwent DES ...
