A 67-year-old female presented with an acute anterior STEMI and underwent percutaneous coronary intervention of the mid-left anterior descending (LAD) coronary artery. Following successful implantation of two drug-eluting stents with TIMI III flow, multimodality imaging using near-infrared spectroscopy with intravascular ultrasound (NIRS-IVUS) and optical coherence tomography (OCT) was performed in the LAD and right coronary artery (RCA) in the setting of an imaging study (A1 and B1).
