    Letter by Bourantas et al Regarding Article, "Nonculprit Plaques in Patients With Acute Coronary Syndromes Have More Vulnerable Features Compared With Those With Non-Acute Coronary Syndromes: A 3-Vessel Optical Coherence Tomography Study"

    We have read with great interest the report by Kato et al1 on the comparison of nonculprit plaques in patients with and without acute coronary syndromes with regards to their prevalence and optical coherence tomography (OCT) characteristics. The authors for the first time demonstrated that the nonculprit lesions of the acute coronary syndrome patients had similar prevalence and distribution , but exhibited differences in the composition of plaque by OCT. However, in order to better understand their conclusions on the prevalence and distribution, the authors should report the length of the pullback and the localization of the imaged segments. There are ...
