Abstract

Objective: Histologic plaque characteristics may influence the hemodynamic effect generated by physiologically significant unstable coronary lesions where plaque content and surface related factors are expected to contribute to the maximum translesional pressure drop. In this study, we aimed to identify local lesion specific virtual histological characteristics that may potentially affect hemodynamic outcome measures.
