“Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) helps decide the dimensions of the stent and optimizes the procedure of stenting by detecting complications in complex coronary artery interventions,” says Dr. PC Rath, an Interventional Cardiologist, Apollo Hospitals “In India we see complex coronary artery disease in relatively small arteries. OCT is better than the methods of angiography and ultrasound, which were used earlier to formulate a strategy for stenting.” “Although not needed for all patients undergoing angioplasty, the procedure is worth its cost of Rs. 60,000 in complex coronary artery interventions.”
