Journal Article
Ladwiniec, A., Allgar, V., Thackray, S., Alamgir, F., & Hoye, A. (2015). Medical therapy, percutaneous coronary intervention and prognosis in patients with chronic total occlusions. Heart, 101(23), (1907-1914). doi:10.1136/heartjnl-2015-308181. ISSN 1355-6037

Objective There is little published data reporting outcomes for those found to have a chronic total coronary occlusion (CTO) that is electively treated medically versus those treated by percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). We sought to compare l... Read More

The haemodynamic effects of collateral donation to a chronic total occlusion : implications for patient management (2015)
Journal Article
Hoye, A., & Ladwiniec, A. (2015). The haemodynamic effects of collateral donation to a chronic total occlusion : implications for patient management. International journal of cardiology, 198, 159-166. doi:10.1016/j.ijcard.2015.06.174

Physiological lesion assessment in the form of Fractional Flow Reserve (FFR) is now well established for the purpose of guiding multi-vessel revascularization. Chronic total coronary occlusions are frequently associated with multi-vessel disease and... Read More

Clinical indications for intravascular ultrasound imaging (2010)
Journal Article
Bourantas, C. V., Naka, K. K., Garg, S., Thackray, S., Papadopoulos, D., Alamgir, F. M., …Michalis, L. K. (2010). Clinical indications for intravascular ultrasound imaging. Echocardiography, 27(10), 1282-1290. doi:10.1111/j.1540-8175.2010.01259.x

Intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) is a catheter-based imaging modality, which provides high resolution cross-sectional images of the coronary arteries. Unlike angiography, which displays only the opacified luminal silhouette, IVUS permits imaging of bo... Read More
