Both techniques were well-­correlated for lumen area stenosis (n=40, r=0,78, P<0,001), plaque length (n=40, r=0,69, P<0,001), remodeling index (n=40, r=0,61, P<0,001). Twenty thin­ cap fibroatheromas, fourteen fibroatheromas with rupture (complicated lesion), six calcinated atheromas were detected by IVUS­-VH. Known signs of instability (low­density area, spotty calcifications, positive remodeling, uneven contour, “ring­like” enhancement) were detected in all types of plaques.
