    1. Culprit lesion morphology in young patients with st-segment elevated myocardial infarction: A clinical, angiographic and optical coherence tomography study

      Culprit lesion morphology in young patients with st-segment elevated myocardial infarction: A clinical, angiographic and optical coherence tomography study

      Background and aims About 20% of patients with ST-segment elevated myocardial infarction (STEMI) are young adults. Morphological characteristics of culprit lesion in young STEMI patients have not been systematically evaluated in vivo . The present study aimed to investigate culprit lesion characteristics in young patients versus older patients using optical coherence tomography (OCT). Methods 1442 STEMI patients who underwent OCT examination of culprit lesion were included and divided into young group (age ≤50 years, n = 400) and older group (age >50 years, n = 1042). Clinical characteristics, angiography and OCT findings were compared between the two groups. Results Culprit lesions in STEMI ...

    2. Impact of statins therapy on morphological changes in lipid-rich plaques stratified by 10-Year framingham risk score: A serial optical coherence tomography study

      Impact of statins therapy on morphological changes in lipid-rich plaques stratified by 10-Year framingham risk score: A serial optical coherence tomography study

      The aim of the study was to investigate the impact of statins therapy on morphological changes of lipid-rich plaques by OCT (optical coherence tomography) in patients with known CHD (coronary heart disease), stratified by FRS. Ninety-seven lipid-rich plaques from sixty-nine patients who received statins therapy and underwent serial OCT images (baseline, 6-month and 12-month) were divided into 2 groups according to the FRS (framingham risk score): low risk group A (FRS<10%, N=35, n=45), moderate to high risk group B (FRS≥10%, N=34, n=52). Fibrous cap thickness (FCT) was measured at its thinnest part 3 times ...
