    Relationship between monocyte/lymphocyte ratio and non-culprit plaque vulnerability in patients with acute coronary syndrome: An optical coherence tomography study

    The importance of monocyte/lymphocyte ratio (MLR) has been indicated in the initiation and progression of coronary artery disease. However, few previous researches demonstrated the relationship between MLR and plaque vulnerability . We aimed to investigate coronary non-culprit plaque vulnerability in patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS) by optical coherence tomography (OCT). A total of 72 ACS patients who underwent coronary angiography and OCT test in Beijing Anzhen Hospital were included in this retrospective study. The plaque vulnerability and plaque morphology were assessed by OCT. The non-culprit plaque in high MLR group exhibited more vulnerable features, characterizing as thinner thickness of ...
