Two distinct phenotypes of plaque erosion assessed by multimodality intracoronary imaging: a case series.

ABSTRACT: AbstractBackground?Pathological studies have reported that patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS) may have different plaque morphologies at culprit lesions, and one of the underlying mechanisms for ACS is plaque erosion. However, the morphological features of plaque erosion obtained by multiple intracoronary imaging modalities have not been fully elucidated.Case summary?We experienced two cases with ACS of culprit lesions exhibiting optical coherence tomography (OCT)-defined plaque erosion. Additional examinations using near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS)–intravascular ultrasound and coronary angioscopy suggested the presence of two distinct phenotypes of plaque erosion. These two types of erosion differ in the extent of NIRS-derived lipid core burden and coronary angioscopy-derived luminal surface colour.Discussion?OCT-defined plaque erosion may not be the unique entity but have at least two distinct plaque morphologies, and NIRS and/or coronary angioscopy may provide incremental ability of discriminating these plaque phenotypes classified as plaque erosion by OCT.
