Supplementary Material

IVUS pullback from the proximal LAD into the left main artery. The arterial wall is normal, with no evidence of atherosclerotic plaque or dissection. A crescent of thrombus is seen at the top of the lumen of the proximal LAD in the first frames of the video image. With pullback proximally to the LAD ostium, the thrombus is seen to occupy most of the LAD lumen around the IVUS catheter. No thrombus is seen within the lumen of the left main artery.
