Abstract

Patients presenting with acute coronary syndrome (ACS) may have different plaque morphologies at the culprit lesion. In particular, plaque rupture (PR) has been shown as the more frequent culprit plaque morphology in ACS. However, its prognostic value is still unknown. In this study, we evaluated the prognostic value of PR, compared with intact fibrous cap (IFC), in patients with ACS.
