Female 62y. old hospitalized in a regional hospital as NSTEMI.
Presented on September 23. with chest pain. ECG showed SVT with ST-segment depression. Baseline troponin level 1.8 (ref. value <0.04).
Risk factors for CVD: hypertension, obesity (BMI 36), positive family history of CVD
Referred for elective coronarography on December 1.
Coronarography was presented to 8 interventional cardiologists for interpretation.
Due to the lack of an OCT catheter the patient was referred to CTA.
CTA: calcified plaque in proximal LAD with 25% stenosis 20mm from ostium. Medial LAD is very thin with loss of opacification at 50mm from ostium.
Control coronarography was done on December 23, with a plan to do OCT.
After NTG administration.
Initially planned OCT was not done.

Would you do an OCT after the administration of NTG?
What are possible adverse events in OCT imaging of the coronary artery with a myocardial bride?
