    Comparison of post‐stent optical coherence tomography findings: Layered versus non‐layered culprit lesions

    Objectives This study aimed to investigate the vascular response of lesions with a layered phenotype. Background Recent studies have shown that layered plaques at culprit lesions detected by optical coherence tomography (OCT) have greater plaque burden and more inflammatory features than non‐layered plaques. Methods This is a retrospective observational study. A total of 193 target lesions from 193 patients [100 patients with acute coronary syndromes (ACS) and 93 with stable angina pectoris (SAP)] who had undergone OCT imaging of the culprit lesion both before and after stenting were included. Layered plaques were identified by OCT as plaques with layers ...
