    Different optical coherence tomography findings for intracoronary stripe-like filling defects on coronary angiogram in patients with acute coronary syndrome

    Stripe-like radiolucent filling defects visualized by conventional coronary angiogram (CAG) usually suggest coronary artery dissection. However, recent endovascular imaging technique with high resolution power such as optical coherence tomography (OCT) makes more detailed intraluminal lesion characterization possible, compared with the conventional CAG, and attests to possibilities of being different clinical situation [1]. We report that stripe-like radiolucent filling defects on CAG proved to have different pathophysiologies by OCT in patients with acute coronary syndrome.
