    Differences in Culprit Lesions Between Pre-menopausal and Postmenopausal Women with Acute Coronary Syndrome: An Optical Coherence Tomography Study

    Background Differences in culprit lesion characteristics remain unclear between pre-menopausal and postmenopausal women with acute coronary syndrome (ACS). Optical coherence tomography (OCT) enables high-resolution in-vivo identification of plaques. We investigated potential differences in culprit lesions between pre-menopausal and postmenopausal women with ACS by using OCT. Methods We included 191 ACS patients who had undergone pre-interventional OCT and stratified them into two groups according to their menopausal status: group A (pre-menopausal, n=97) and group B (postmenopausal, n=94). The characteristics of culprit lesions were compared between the two groups. Results Multivessel lesions were more commonly noted on angiography in the ...
