Abstract

Multiple plaque instability has been reported in about one-third of patients with ST elevation acute myocardial infarction (STEMI) and could be responsible for early recurrent instability after STEMI. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a high-resolution imaging technique that may help in detection and characterization of unstable coronary plaques. We present a case of multiple coronary instability in a patient with anterior STEMI where OCT has tailored an optimal diagnosis and treatment.
