Imaging a spiral dissection of the superficial femoral artery in high resolution with optical coherence tomography-Seeing is believing

Catheterization and Cardiovascular Interventions, 05/09/2012

This is the first report using non–occlusive optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging to serve as an adjunct to endovascular intervention for femoropopliteal disease. Authors illustrate the feasibility of acquiring high resolution images of a spiral dissection of the superficial femoral artery following balloon angioplasty that was not adequately visualized by angiography.
