    Lesional Evaluation of High Risk Patients With Neoatherosclerosis Treated With Rosuvastatin and Eicosapentaenoic Acid Using Optical Coherence Tomography(OCT)[LINK It Two]

    Eicosapentaenoic acid and statin therapy prevents cardiovascular events. However, the impact of these treatment in patients with in-stent neoatherosclerosis has not been clarified. So, the investigators conducted LINK IT study. This study showed that eicosapentaenoic acid(EPA) and rosuvastatin therapy improve lipid index in patients compared with rosuvastatin alone therapy. However, it was insufficient to directly evaluate the efficacy of additional effect of EPA for neoatherosclerosis. Because, statin dose of two groups was different and type of stent was variety. Therefore, the investigators designed a new prospective, randomized OCT study. The OCT operators randomly assigned 75 patients who were detected ...
