    Optical Coherence Tomography Examination in Myocardial Infarction

    Acute myocardial infarction (AMI), which results from coronary artery occlusion due to thrombosis, remains the leading cause of death and disability worldwide. Pathological studies have demonstrated that plaque rupture accompanied by subsequent thrombus formation is the main mechanism responsible for AMI, accounting for approximately two thirds of cases; the remaining approximately one third of cases are the result of plaque erosion. Moreover, previous studies showed that the risk of cardiovascular events is significantly higher in patients with plaque rupture compared to those with plaque erosion. The EROSION study suggested that in patients with acute coronary syndrome presenting with plaque erosion ...
