Intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) is a tomographic imaging modality played in the course of coronary angiography that enables the simultaneous overview of lumen, vessel wall, and atherosclerotic plaque. IVUS has been verified because the approach to selection for the detection and serial commentary of transplant vasculopathy, and extra lately, for the serial commentary of atherosclerotic plaque burden in atherosclerosis progression/regression trials. while played through an operator acquainted with interventional, percutaneous concepts, the speed of problems in the course of IVUS imaging is highly low.
IVUS Made Easy
presents an advent to coronary imaging with intravascular ultrasound (IVUS). It contains a quick, functional textual content and corresponding illustrated IVUS pictures. The layout is uniform all through, with a non-illustrated IVUS photo displayed including an illustrated reproduction. according to the formerly released An Atlas and guide of Coronary Intravascular Ultrasound Imaging, this guide provides multiplied descriptions of the sensible elements of IVUS and contains additional info in brief case shows.
The publication starts with the main of IVUS imaging. It discusses basic arterial anatomy via IVUS, picture artifacts and IVUS measurements. It then discusses plaque (atheroma) morphology and medical applications.
Case experiences comprise:
- Coronary arteritis
- Angiographically indeterminate lesion
- Indeterminate lesion: plaque rupture
- Intedeterminate lesion after angioplasty
- Intracoronary thrombus (2 cases)
- Complications of IVUS: dissection
- Chronic coronary arterial wall dissection at the back of stent
- Intramural hematoma post-PCI
- Serial IVUS: regression
