Plaque Characteristics of the Coronary Segment Proximal to the Culprit Lesion in Stable and Unstable Patients
Identifying vulnerable plaque is important for preventing an acute coronary event. The present study examined the relationship between the clinical presentation of coronary artery disease and the plaque characteristics of nonculprit segment assessed by virtual histology intravascular ultrasound (VH-IVUS). Method: We performed VH-IVUS analysis on nonculprit segments with <50% diameter stenosis in 91 patients (48 acute coronary syndrome [ACS] patients, 43 stable angina [SA] patients).
