The primary objective of this study is to determine the diagnostic efficiency and accuracy of using the StentOptimizer. The ability of StentOptimizer to influence post deployment treatment strategy will be assessed and compared to the IVUS system. In addition, the correlation of diameter measurements between the StentOptimizer, IVUS and 2D QCA will be assessed.
Stent underexpansion is defined as the minimum stent area by itself or compared with a predefined reference. It plays a role in the pathogenesis of adverse events following stent deployment. Stent underexpansion has been a consistent finding in IVUS reports of acute or subacute BMS or DES thrombosis.
Post intervention imaging can determine whether there is adequate stent expansion. Currently the only available tool for evaluation of properness of stent deployment is intravascular ultrasound (IVUS). IVUS procedure is invasive, labor intensified, associated with radiation and contrast media use, and is not free of complications. In many medical centers, IVUS is not used routinely because of lack of knowledge and expertise in reading it, and it's relatively high price.
The StentOptimizer is an angiography based software tool aimed to enhance visualization of deployed stents and to provide the physician with quantitative data regarding stent dimensions. The StentOptimizer is part of an image acquisition and processing software system (IC-Pro), designed as an add-on to conventional X-ray angiography systems.
An enhanced stent image is produced using the radiopaque markers of the delivery balloon from several frames (minimum 20). The result is a still image of the stent with enhanced edges and the region of interest around it

To assess sex-specific differences regarding use of conventional risks and coronary artery calcification (CAC) to detect coronary artery disease (CAD) using coronary CT angiography (CCTA).

Long-term patient and kidney survival after coronary artery bypass grafting, percutaneous coronary intervention, or medical therapy for patients with chronic kidney disease: a propensity-matched cohort study.
Revascularization in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and coronary artery disease (CAD) is often deferred because of concern over progression of renal failure.
Endothelial dysfunction and coronary artery calcification (CAC) may represent two distinct and separate processes in the development of coronary atherosclerosis. However, the interaction between these...
Real-life characteristics and outcomes of patients who undergo percutaneous coronary intervention versus coronary artery bypass grafting for left main coronary artery disease: data from the prospective Multi-vessel Coronary Artery Disease (MULTICAD) Israeli Registry.
Left main coronary artery involvement in patients with multivessel coronary artery disease provides a poor prognosis. Although the main strategy for revascularization is by coronary artery bypass graf...
Surgical therapy of ischemic coronary artery disease achieved by grafting a section of saphenous vein, internal mammary artery, or other substitute between the aorta and the obstructed coronary artery distal to the obstructive lesion.
Direct myocardial revascularization in which the internal mammary artery is anastomosed to the right coronary artery, circumflex artery, or anterior descending coronary artery. The internal mammary artery is the most frequent choice, especially for a single graft, for coronary artery bypass surgery.
A complication of INTERNAL MAMMARY-CORONARY ARTERY ANASTOMOSIS whereby an occlusion or stenosis of the proximal SUBCLAVIAN ARTERY causes a reversal of the blood flow away from the CORONARY CIRCULATION, through the grafted INTERNAL MAMMARY ARTERY (internal thoracic artery), and back to the distal subclavian distribution.
A congenital coronary vessel anomaly in which the left main CORONARY ARTERY originates from the PULMONARY ARTERY instead of from AORTA. The congenital heart defect typically results in coronary artery FISTULA; LEFT-SIDED HEART FAILURE and MITRAL VALVE INSUFFICIENCY during the first months of life.
Pathological processes of CORONARY ARTERIES that may derive from a congenital abnormality, atherosclerotic, or non-atherosclerotic cause.
