Sirolimus-Eluting Balloon Treatment of Distal Internal Mammary Artery Anastomosis: Optical Coherence Tomography Findings
Figure 2 - A) Pre-intervention OCT at the zone of the LIMA to LAD anastomosis showing a reduced lumen area about 1.0 mm2. B) OCT after predilation and sirolimus-DEB inflation confirming good final result at the zone of anastomosis with an excellent lumen area (6.4 mm2). C) 3D reconstruction of final OCT run, showing from distal to proximal an “en face view” of the distal anastomosis of LIMA to LAD, confirming good result after Sirolimus-DEB. * denotes wire artefact. GW: guidewire.
