Clinical Imaging of ACS With Ruptured or Intact Fibrous Caps.

Abstract

I n vivo intravascular imaging of culprit plaques in acute coronary syndrome (ACS) may shed light on the plaque substrate of acute thrombosis, either a ruptured fibrous cap (RFC) or an intact fibrous cap (IFC). This may help to unravel mechanisms of acute coronary thrombosis in ACS, monitor plaque healing after an acute event, and revisit indications for… (More)
