    2. Role of Optical Coherence Tomography in Diagnosis and Treatment of Patients with Acute Coronary Syndrome

      Role of Optical Coherence Tomography in Diagnosis and Treatment of Patients with Acute Coronary Syndrome
      Acute coronary syndrome (ACS) is the main cause of death worldwide and the leading cause of disease burden in high-income countries. ACS refers to a constellation of clinical symptoms that are compatible with acute myocardial ischemia. It describes a spectrum of clinical manifestations that result from a common pathophysiological process. The most common cause of ACS are rupture of an atherosclerotic lesion containing a large necrotic core and a thin ...
