Paper Abstract

Abrupt occlusion of a coronary artery is the major cause of morbidity and mortality associated with percutaneous angioplasty. Attempts to reopen occluded vessels are either empirical attempts or guided by angiographic lesion morphology which has inherent limitations in specifically identifying the cause of the occlusion. We performed percutaneous coronary angioscopy in patients with abrupt occlusion to directly visualize the intravascular morphology of abruptly occluded vessels and compared these results with results obtained by angiography.
