1. Correlation Between Plaque Color Classification by Coronary Angioscopy and Fibrous Cap Thickness by Optical Coherence Tomography

    Correlation Between Plaque Color Classification by Coronary Angioscopy and Fibrous Cap Thickness by Optical Coherence Tomography
    Background: Yellow color intensity of coronary plaque evaluated by coronary angioscopy (CAS) might be associated with plaque vulnerability. Pathological studies have reported that vulnerable plaque have the thin cap fibroatheroma (TCFA) with a cap thickness of 65 µm. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) permit us to evaluate fibrous cap thickness, because OCT has higher resolution than intravascular ultrasound (IVUS), which resolution is approximately 10 to 20 times higher than IVUS. Purpose: This study was undertaken to assess the relationship between plaque color evaluated by CAS and fibrous cap thickness estimated by OCT in patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS). Methods: 84 ...
