Association of statin therapy with reduced coronary plaque rupture: an optical coherence tomography study.
Coronary Artery Disease. 19(4):237-242, June 2008. Chia, Stanley a; Raffel, Owen Christopher a; Takano, Masamichi c; Tearney, Guillermo J. b; Bouma, Brett E. b; Jang, Ik-Kyung a Abstract: Objective: Statin therapy induces plaque regression and may stabilize atheromatous plaques. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a high-resolution in-vivo imaging modality that allows characterization of atherosclerotic plaques. We aimed to demonstrate the potential utility of OCT in evaluating coronary plaqueRead Full Article
