    Disruption of vulnerable plaque and following thrombus formation are considered the main cause of acute coronary syndrome (ACS). Intracoronary angioscopy is an endoscopic technology that allows direct visualization of the coronary artery lumen and provides detailed information regarding plaque morphology in patients with coronary artery disease. The color and morphology of coronary plaque under angioscopy observation are proposed to be determinants for plaque stability.
