Abbott Reports (ILUMIEN IV) OPTIMAL PCI Clinical Trial Results of OCT Intravascular Imaging
- The results from the (ILUMIEN IV) OPTIMAL PCI study evaluating OCT-guided stent implantation vs stenting using angiography alone in 2487 patients from 18 countries at 80 sites globally, incl. in the US, India, Japan & EU
- The study demonstrated improved stent expansion with a 7% increase in MSA over angiography guidance alone among patients undergoing percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI), reduced risk of future blockages. OCT guidance led to a 64% reduction in ST rates, resulting in a significant difference over angiography. The results were presented at ESC 2023 & published in The NEJM
- OCT-guided PCIS vs angiography was also associated with a 39% reduction in cardiac death; 24% in target vessel myocardial infarction & also associated with a lower risk of AEs related to safety
