    2. Distinct Morphological Features of Ruptured Culprit Plaque for Acute Coronary Events Compared to those with Silent Rupture and Thin-Cap Fibroatheroma: a Combined Optical Coherence Tomography and Intravascular Ultrasound Study

      Distinct Morphological Features of Ruptured Culprit Plaque for Acute Coronary Events Compared to those with Silent Rupture and Thin-Cap Fibroatheroma: a Combined Optical Coherence Tomography and Intravascular Ultrasound Study
      Objectives To identify specific morphological characteristics of ruptured culprit plaques (RCP) responsible for acute events, and compare them with ruptured non-culprit plaques (RNCP) and non-ruptured thin-cap fibroatheroma (TCFA) in patients presenting with acute coronary syndromes (ACS). Background Non-ruptured TCFA and multiple ruptured plaques are detected in the same patients with ACS. It remains unknown whether certain morphological characteristics determine rupture of TCFA and subsequently result in ACS. Methods We analyzed ...

    3. Comprehensive overview of definitions for optical coherence tomography-based plaque and stent analyses

      Comprehensive overview of definitions for optical coherence tomography-based plaque and stent analyses
      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is the current state-of-the-art intracoronary imaging modality that allows visualization of detailed morphological characteristics of both atherosclerotic plaque and stent. So far, three expert review documents have been released for standardization of OCT image analysis. In the real world, a variety of definitions are being used by different groups and by different core laboratories to analyze OCT findings because of different clinical/procedural contexts in which ...

    5. Features of Coronary Plaque in Patients with Metabolic Syndrome and Diabetes Mellitus Assessed by 3-vessel Optical Coherence Tomography

      Features of Coronary Plaque in Patients with Metabolic Syndrome and Diabetes Mellitus Assessed by 3-vessel Optical Coherence Tomography
      Background The pathophysiologic basis for the association between metabolic syndrome (MetS) and coronary artery disease is not well understood. We sought to characterize coronary plaques in patients with MetS using optical coherence tomography (OCT). Methods and Results We identified 451 coronary plaques from 171 subjects who underwent OCT imaging in three coronary arteries. Subjects were divided into 3 groups: diabetes mellitus (DM, n=77), MetS (n=35), and a control ...
