1. Relationship Between Arterial and Fibrous Cap Remodeling: A Serial Three-Vessel Intravascular Ultrasound and Optical Coherence Tomography Study

    Relationship Between Arterial and Fibrous Cap Remodeling: A Serial Three-Vessel Intravascular Ultrasound and Optical Coherence Tomography Study
    Background—Positive arterial remodeling and thin fibrous cap are characteristics of rupture-prone or vulnerable plaque. The natural course of the fibrous cap thickness and the relationship between serial arterial remodeling and changes in fibrous cap thickness are unknown. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to evaluate the relationship between changes in fibrous cap thickness and arterial remodeling by using optical coherence tomography (OCT) and intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) during 6-month follow-up. Methods and Results—Both IVUS and OCT examinations were performed on 108 vessels from 36 patients with ischemic heart disease who underwent percutaneous coronary intervention. Fifty-eight fibroatheromas were selected ...
