1. Assessment of Morphological Features of Non-culprit Plaques in Patients With Acute Coronary Syndrome Using Optical Coherence Tomography

    Background: Previous studies have shown that the culprit lesion in patients (pts) with acute coronary syndrome (ACS) had thinner fibrous cap and higher incidence of plaque rupture and thrombus formation. Although plaque instability might be expected to develop in a multifocal pattern, morphological features including fibrous cap thickness of non-culprit plaques have not been well established. Therefore, we assessed the morphological features of non-culprit plaques in pts with ACS using optical coherence tomography (OCT). Methods: A total of 48 culprit and non-culprit coronary plaques (non-culprit vessel) in pts with coronary artery disease were interrogated by OCT before PCI. Pts were ...
