Intravascular Imaging: A Universal Approach for Angioplasty Optimization

Despite robust information supporting the use of intravascular imaging during coronary angioplasty, its use in clinical practice remains low. This paper proposes using an algorithm for decision-making throughout the procedure to promote increased intravascular imaging use. Regardless of the many technologies that have been incorporated into strut design struts and polymer type, the rate of

TCT 2020 | Our Next Goal Should Be Using IVUS Guidance in Every Angioplasty

The benefits of intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) guidance in all angioplasties with second-generation drug-eluting stents (DES) persist through 3 years of follow-up. These data derive from the extended follow-up of the ULTIMATE study, presented virtually at TCT 2020 and published simultaneously in JACC Intv. At 3 years, target-vessel failure remained lower in patients whose angioplasty was guided by

IVUS in Every Step of Complex Angioplasty

Complex angioplasties require not only experience and patience but also technology. Imaging–guided pre-dilation, stent sizing, and post-dilation reduced the cardiovascular events after a 3-year follow-up in patients who received drug-eluting stents in complex angioplasties. This paper, recently published in JACC Interventions, compared the 3-year outcome of the complex angioplasty optimization technique with intravascular imaging to

IVUS vs. Angiography in New-Generation Drug-Eluting Stents Preimplantation

Courtesy of Dr. Guillermo Migliaro. The latest 2011 American College of Cardiology (ACC) guideline states that “coronary intravascular ultrasonography (IVUS) may be considered for guidance of coronary stent implantation, particularly in cases of left main coronary artery stenting (Class IIB, Level of Evidence: B).” This has been long debated with no clear winners. This analysis provides new information

IVUS-XPL: IVUS superior to angiography for guiding DES implantation in long lesions

Original Title: Effect of intravascular ultrasound-guided vs angiography-guided everolimus-eluting stent implantation: the IVUS-XPL randomized clinical trial. Presenter: Hong S-J. Patients with long coronary lesions have better clinical results after a year of second generation DES implantation when interventions are guided by IVUS, instead of angiography. The benefit was attributed to a lower revascularization rate of ischemia
