  • Atherosclerotic plaque morphology differs in women and men. Acute coronary thrombosis results from 2 different types of plaque morphologies: plaque rupture and plaque erosion. Arbustini et al evaluated the prevalence of plaque erosion as a substrate for coronary thrombosis through a pathological study in patients with acute MI not treated with thrombolysis or coronary interventional procedures. This figure shows plaque erosion in 4 sections; the thrombus outlines the profile of the plaque, and there is no evidence of continuity between thrombus and plaque core. 34 Acute coronary thrombi were found in 291 hearts (98%); in 74 cases (25%)  40/107 women (37.4%) and 34/184 men (18.5%; P =.0004)  the plaque substrate for thrombosis was erosion. 34 Plaque erosion is an important substrate for coronary thrombosis in patients who die of acute MI, and its prevalence is significantly higher in women than in men. 34 34. Arbustini E, Dal Bello B, Morbini P, et al. Plaque erosion is a major substrate for coronary thrombosis in acute myocardial infarction. Heart . 1999;82:269-272.
