Retrospective studies provide mixed results on a direct-to-angiography approach for select mobile stroke unit patients and positive findings on mechanical thrombectomy beyond the 24-hour window.
New Views of Flow
While OCT-A provides outstanding visualization of a small, select area of flow, ultra-widefield fluorescein angiography provides an in-depth assessment of the panretinal blood flow and vascular features.
IVUS-Guided PCI in the Era of Drug-Eluting Stents
A new meta-analysis shows IVUS’ edge over angiography for guiding stent placement extends to drug-eluting stents as well as bare-metal stents. But that doesn’t mean IVUS makes sense for lower-risk patients.
FFR and IVUS As Complements to Angiography
