    Optical Coherence Tomographic Features of Pancoronary Plaques in Patients With Acute Myocardial Infarction Caused by Layered Plaque Rupture Versus Layered Plaque Erosion

    Atherosclerotic plaque instability could occur on the basis of healed plaque which has a layered appearance on optical coherence tomography. This study aimed to investigate pancoronary plaque features of layered plaque rupture (LPR) and layered plaque erosion (LPE) in patients with acute myocardial infarction. Among 388 patients with acute myocardial infarction who underwent preintervention optical coherence tomography imaging of three coronary arteries, 190 patients with layered culprit plaque (49.0%) were identified and further divided into 2 groups: LPR group and LPE group. Clinical characteristics, pancoronary plaque features and clinical outcomes were compared between the 2 groups. Patients with LPR ...
