OBJECTIVES This study was designed to report the clinical and angiographic correlates of plaque rupture detected by intravascular ultrasound (IVUS). BACKGROUND Acute coronary syndromes result from spontaneous plaque rupture and thrombosis. METHODS We report 300 plaque ruptures in 257 arteries in 254 patients. Plaque ruptures were detected during pre-intervention IVUS. Standard clinical, angiographic, and IVUS parameters were collected and/or measured. One lesion per patient was analyzed… Expand
