The prevalence of current smokers and the proportion of females were higher in these patients compared to the RFC group [9, 10]. 22 Y. Ozaki et al. Fig. 2 Intact fibrous cap (IFC-ACS) plaque.

The fluffy surface was stained blue with EB, indicating the presence of fibrin and/or damaged endothelial cells (Fig. 7). Similar changes were reproduced by mechanical damages to the artery followed by blood perfusion to produce thrombus in dogs. Fluffy surface was exposed after removal of globular thrombus. Histologically, the fluffy surface was composed of fibrin threads arising from the damaged endothelial cells and adhered by platelets. Therefore, we consider that coronary segment with frosty glass-like surface is the site of surface disruption and resultant thrombosis and frosty glass-like changes are due to residual fibrin and platelets after autolysis of the thrombus [3, 5, 8].
