Abstract

Percutaneous coronary angioscopy is an invaluable alternative imaging modality that can not be used routinely in the interventional cardiac catheterization laboratory. The major value of angioscopy lies in its ability to determine safely, quickly, and accurately intraluminal morphologies before and after coronary interventions. The results from angioscopy can then be used to target more specific treatment strategies, given the vast array of interventional treatment strategies available. Percutaneous coronary angioscopy, however, requires meticulous attention for the proper preparation and use of the angioscope to minimize the potential risks associated with the imaging procedure.
