BACKGROUND Coronary revascularization is associated with no-reflow phenomenon and elevation of cardiac biomarkers. This may occur due to plaque modification. We used near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) to evaluate lipid core plaque (LCP) modification with coronary revascularization and its correlation with periprocedural myocardial infarction. METHODS Patients presenting to the cardiac catheterization laboratory who underwent NIRS, NIRS/intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) were reviewed and their… CONTINUE READING
