In acute coronary syndromes inflammatory process plays an important role in atherosclerotic plaque instability. Our aim was to evaluate the presence and distribution of vulnerable plaques and inflammatory infiltrates in patients who died of acute myocardial infarction in comparison to patients who died of non-coronary heart disease.
