    Are characteristics of plaque erosion defined by optical coherence tomography similar to true erosion in pathology?

    Plaque erosion occurs without cap disruption where flowing blood comes into direct contact with intimal surface lacking endothelial cells. 1 In both clinical studies using intravascular imaging and autopsy data from subjects dying suddenly, plaque erosion is the second most common cause of coronary thrombus. In our recent pathological analysis of autopsies from subjects dying suddenly, plaque rupture was the most frequent causes of coronary thrombus (60%), the second most frequent was...
