BACKGROUND No reflow following percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) is a major concern in patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS) and it may be influenced by the preexisting plaque type. METHODS AND RESULTS To evaluate the impact of plaque characteristics on coronary reflow following PCI in patients with ACS, a total of 110 patients (89 acute myocardial infarction, 21 unstable angina) were assessed by intravascular ultrasound. Plaque type was categorized as either atherosclerotic… CONTINUE READING
