Increased Vulnerability and Distinct Layered Phenotype at Culprit and Nonculprit Lesions in STEMI Versus NSTEMI - JIMG April 2022

Patients with STEMI had increased plaque vulnerability (ie, more plaque rupture and microvessels) and distinct layered phenotype at the culprit and nonculprit lesions compared with NSTEMI patients. Culprit lesion features of large layer area, TCFA, thrombus, and non–left circumflex artery location predicted the clinical presentation of STEMI.
