Frequency-domain optical coherence tomography (FD-OCT) enables detailed assessment of the morphology of coronary plaque.We sought to determine the influence of the initial culprit coronary plaque anatomy within the infarct-related artery on IMR after stenting in STEMI.Abstract: PATIENTS AND METHODS: In 25 STEMI patients IMR was measured immediately before and after stent implantation. FD-OCT imaging was performed at the same time points and atherothrombotic volume (ATV) before stenting, prolapsed+floating ATV after stenting and DELTAATV was measured using three different strategies.Abstract: RESULTS: There were no relationships between preprocedural IMR and FD-OCT parameters. Prestenting IMR was related only to pain to wire time (P: 0.02). Irrespective of the method adopted, the final IMR was related to prestenting ATV (p: 0.44, P: 0.03 for method I, p: 0.48, P: 0.02 for method II and p: 0.30, P: 0.06 for method III) and DELTAATV (p: 0.41, P: 0.04 for method II and p: 0.44, P: 0.03 for method III).Abstract: CONCLUSION: IMR measured before stenting is independent of the appearances of the culprit coronary plaque within the infarct-related artery. IMR after stenting, and more importantly, the change in IMR after stenting, reflect the degree of distal embolization during stent implantation.
