    Non-Culprit Coronary Plaque Characteristics of Chronic Kidney Disease

    Background —Chronic kidney disease (CKD) promotes the development of atherosclerosis and increases the risk of cardiovascular disease. The aim of the present study was to compare the coronary plaque characteristics of patients with and without CKD using optical coherence tomography (OCT). Methods and Results —We identified 463 non-culprit plaques from 287 patients from the MGH OCT Registry. CKD was defined as estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) < 60ml/min/1.73m 2 . 402 plaques (250 patients) were in the non-CKD group and 61 plaques (37 patients) were in the CKD group. Compared to non-CKD plaques, plaques with CKD had a larger ...
