    Microvascular Obstruction Is Caused by Atherothrombosis in Patients With Acute Coronary Syndrome Undergoing Percutaneous Coronary Intervention

    The diagnosis of acute coronary syndrome (ACS) is primarily based on the mode of clinical presentation and is a term used for any conditions suggesting the acute induction of myocardial ischemia. The precise molecular and cellular triggers that lead to ACS remain poorly understood; however, histopathologic studies have illustrated several mechanisms that may explain the sudden onset of symptoms in ACS patients. The most common substrate underlying ACS is thought to be rupture of a vulnerable plaque that contains a necrotic core covered by a fibrous cap. The term, thin-cap fibroatheroma (TCFA) is used to describe vulnerable plaque because histomorphometric ...
