    Coronary plaque healing and diabetes: insights from optical coherence tomography imaging

    Aims Atherosclerotic plaque healing is a dynamic process developing after plaque rupture or erosion, which aims to prevent lasting occlusive thrombus formation and to promote plaque repair. We hypothesized that diabetes mellitus, one of the major conventional cardiovascular risk factors, may influence the healing capacity after plaque destabilization. Methods and results In this single-centre observational cohort study, patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS) or chronic coronary syndrome (CCS) who underwent optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging at Fondazione Policlinico A. Gemelli–IRCCS, Rome, were included. Patients were divided into two groups (i.e. diabetes vs. no diabetes), and stratified based on ...
