INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES Vasospastic angina (VSA) can result in endothelial damage and thrombus formation. The aim of this study was to evaluate the incidence of thrombus and plaque characteristics at coronary spasm segments compared with nonspasm segments by using optical coherence tomography (OCT) in patients with suspected VSA. METHODS One hundred and eighty-three patients with suspected VSA were enrolled in this study. The ergonovine provocation test was performed in all patients for… Expand
