Changing the Interventional Approach Based Upon NIRS-IVUS Imaging using the TVC Imaging System
Geoffrey Crimmins, MD of William Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak, Michigan presents a case that demonstrates how NIRS-IVUS imaging using the TVC Imaging System provided critically important information about a culprit lesion's structure and extensive lipid core content that led to a significant change to this case's interventional strategy.|
James Muller, MD, narrates clinical case videos based on peer reviewed publications. Each case identifies the peri-procedural value TVC Imaging may provide during stenting.
Stent Landing in Lipid Core Plaque
Clinical case involving landing a stent in a lipid core plaque (LCP). The disruption of LCP within stent was considered a nidus for stent thrombosis.|
Detection of Lipid-Core Plaques by Intracoronary Near-Infrared Spectroscopy Identifies High Risk of Periprocedural Myocardial Infarction
Clinical case involving detection of lipid core plaque(LCP) at stenotic sites by near infrared spectroscopy (NIRS). Since stenotic sites with a large LCP have a much higher incidence of peri-stenting MI when dilated, NIRS provides useful information for planning therapy.|
Joshua Stolker, MD, Saint Louis University School of Medicine, narrates a STEMI case performed using the TVC Imaging System.
STEMI and the TVC Imaging System
STEMI case in which a treatment decision was supported through the use of TVC Imaging following angiography|
David G. Rizik, MD, Medical Director and Interventional Cardiologist at Scottsdale Heart Group describes how the TVC Imaging System provided clinical value during PCI.
Rapid Lesion Progression with Myocardial Infarction
This case involved rapid lesion progression and peri-stenting MI. The TVC Imaging System was used to assess lesion structure, composition and assist in stent sizing.|
