Study Description
Brief Summary:
Information will be collected prospectively in about 3,000 patients having Optical Coherence Tomography during cardiac catheterization. Subjects will be initially enrolled at sites outside of the United States, where Optical Coherence Tomography is approved by regulatory agencies. Subjects will be followed for up to 5 years.

Condition or disease
Coronary Artery Disease

Detailed Description:

This project will create a prospective registry of 3,000 patients with follow-ups of up to 5 years.

The aims of the project will be:

  1. identify plaque characteristics on OCT that are associated with adverse cardiac events including myocardial infarction
  2. to identify characteristics of stented arteries that are associated with adverse events including restenosis and stent thrombosis

Because detailed clinical, angiographic and intravascular imaging data will be gathered from a large number of patients with clinical follow-ups, we anticipate that the registry will be a tremendous resource for additional research questions going forward.
