Further investigation of women who presented with myocardial infarctions but no moderate to severe obstruction on angiography was performed in a recent cohort study at New York University Medical Center. After angiography, the women studied also underwent intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) and cardiac MRI to further investigate possible mechanisms. Plaque rupture or ulceration was seen in 38% (16 out of 42
women imaged, as reviewed by an independent core lab). Check out the
