    Multimodality Intravascular Imaging to Evaluate Sex Differences in Plaque Morphology in Stable CAD

    Objectives The aim of this study was to evaluate sex differences in plaque morphology in stable coronary artery disease (CAD) patients using a multimodality intravascular imaging approach. Background Differences in atherosclerotic burden and plaque morphology between men and women is a focus of treatment and preventative measures. Methods We retrospectively analyzed data from 383 patients with stable CAD who were referred for angiography and underwent optical coherence tomography. Among them, 128 also underwent intravascular ultrasound (IVUS)/near infrared spectroscopy. Results Of the 383 patients included in the study, 268 were men and 115 were women. Women tended to be older ...
