    Morphological features of non-culprit plaques on optical coherence tomography and integrated backscatter intravascular ultrasound in patients with acute coronary syndromes

    Aims We sought to compare the morphological features of non-culprit plaques with >50% diameter stenosis in patients with acute coronary syndromes (ACS) with those of culprit plaques in patients with ACS and stable ang in a pectoris (SAP) us in g optical coherence tomography (OCT) and integrated backscatter intravascular ultrasound (IB-IVUS). Methods and results A total of 150 culprit and non-culprit coronary plaques ( non-culprit vessels) in 150 patients with coronary artery disease were in terrogated by OCT before percutaneous coronary in terventi on (PCI). Patients were categorized as follows: 73 culprit plaques in patients with ACS (ACS-C), 32 non-culprit plaques ...
