    Clinical perspective of Optical Coherence Tomography and Intravascular Ultrasound in STEMI patients

    In the last years, the Intravascular Ultrasound Study (IVUS) and further the Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) became two helpful tools to characterize of the atherosclerotic plaque. These new technologies made possible to analyse in vivo the pathophysiologic mechanisms that previously were just speculated or observed post-mortem (1). Recently Dr. Higum and Prof. Jang published an interesting article named “A combined OCT and IVUS on plaque rupture, plaque erosion and calcified nodule in patients with STEMI”, useful to describe the different presentation of culprit lesions in STelevation myocardial infarction (2). In this paper the authors describe the findings about 112 STEMI ...
