Frequency and healing of nonculprit coronary artery plaque disruptions in patients with acute myocardial infarction.

Abstract

The pathophysiology of plaque disruption and healing in nonculprit segments has not been clarified. Therefore, we investigated the frequency of plaque disruptions in nonculprit segments and whether those plaques are stabilized during follow-ups in patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI) by serial angioscopic observations. Analyzed were 13… (More)
