Abstract

We report a case of natural healing of a ruptured unstable coronary plaque using serial OCT examination. Stenting procedure was deferred based on the angiographic and mainly OCT findings. A healing process of ruptured plaque without foreign body was studied using OCT at 3, 14 and 24 months after PCI.
