    Morphological characteristics of optical coherence tomography defined plaque fissure in patients with acute coronary syndrome

    We assessed the plaque disruption in 245 consecutive patients with acute coronary syndrome undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention. The plaque fissure was diagnosed with optical coherence tomography, and intravascular ultrasound was used to determine arterial remodeling. Of them, 26 fissures were found in this study. The definite fissure was seen in 17 (65.4%) and probable fissure was seen in 9 (34.6%) patients. In 18 (69.2%), plaque fissure component was lipidic or thin-capped fibroatheroma. Eighteen (69.2%) of fissured plaque were seen within 30 mm of coronary ostium. Combined plaque fissure with plaque rupture/erosion was seen in 21 ...
