    Significance of intraplaque neovascularisation for vulnerability: optical coherence tomography study

    Objectives This study aimed to investigate the role of intraplaque neovascularisation (NV) in culprit lesions and non-culprit lesions of unstable angina pectoris (UAP) and in lesions of stable angina pectoris (SAP) using optical coherence tomography (OCT). Design This study was a retrospective study. Setting The significance of NV for culprit and non-culprit plaques remains unclear. Participants A total of 356 plaques from 92 UAP patients and 25 SAP patients who underwent OCT imaging were divided into three groups: culprit lesions in UAP (92), non-culprit lesions in UAP (203) and lesions of SAP (61). Main outcome measures NV and plaque characteristics ...
