    Morphological Characteristics of Culprit Atheromatic Plaque Are Associated With Coronary Flow After Thrombolytic Therapy

    ObjectivesThis study investigated the association between morphological characteristics of culprit atheromatic lesions as assessed by optical coherence tomography and Thrombolysis In Myocardial Infarction (TIMI) flow grade after thrombolysis in patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI).BackgroundAlthough several variables have been found to predict coronary flow after thrombolysis in patients with STEMI, the impact of culprit lesion morphology has not been studied.MethodsFifty-five patients with STEMI from 3 tertiary centers that were treated with thrombolysis and underwent optical coherence tomography examination in the culprit lesion between 24 and 48 h after thrombolysis were included in the study. Patients were categorized ...
