Abstract

Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a novel intravascular imaging modality with excellent resolution. We report the application of OCT in 3 coronary bifurcation interventions, in which OCT allowed optimization of the final procedural result, by detecting a dissection, intracoronary thrombus and by confirming complete ostial coverage by a stent.
