      Serial Optical Coherence Tomography and Intravascular Ultrasound Analysis of Gender Difference in Changes of Plaque Phenotype in Response to Lipid-lowering Therapy
      Although the clinical benefit of statins have been demonstrated in both genders, gender differences in the response to statin therapy on plaque morphological changes have not been reported. A total of 66 non-culprit plaques from 46 patients who had serial image acquisition at baseline, 6 months, and 12 months by both optical coherence tomography (OCT) and intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) were included.

    18. Comparison of Intensive versus Moderate Lipid-lowering Therapy on Fibrous Cap and Atheroma Volume of Coronary Lipid-rich Plaque Using Serial Optical Coherence Tomography and Intravascular Ultrasound Imaging

      Comparison of Intensive versus Moderate Lipid-lowering Therapy on Fibrous Cap and Atheroma Volume of Coronary Lipid-rich Plaque Using Serial Optical Coherence Tomography and Intravascular Ultrasound Imaging
      Despite marked clinical benefit, reduction in atheroma volume with statin therapy is minimal. Changes in plaque composition may explain this discrepancy. We aimed in the present study to assess the effect of statin therapy on coronary plaque composition as well as plaque volume using serial multimodality imaging. From an open-label, single-blinded study, patients with angiographically mild to moderate lesion were randomized to receive atorvastatin 60 (AT 60) mg or atorvastatin ...

    22. Morphologic Characteristics of Eroded Coronary Plaques: A Combined Angiographic, Optical Coherence Tomography, and Intravascular Ultrasound Study

      Morphologic Characteristics of Eroded Coronary Plaques: A Combined Angiographic, Optical Coherence Tomography, and Intravascular Ultrasound Study
      Plaque erosion accounts for about one-third of acute coronary syndrome (ACS) [1]. Systemic milieu such as high inflammatory and/or thrombogenic status may be an essential precondition for the occurrence of plaque erosion [2]. However, ACS patients frequently have multiple lesions and not all plaques develop erosion resulting in occlusive thrombus formation. Since the systemic milieu is the same, we hypothesized that plaque morphological features would be different between eroded ...

      Comparison by Optical Coherence Tomography of the Frequency of Lipid Coronary Plaques in Current Smokers, Former Smokers, and Non-smokers
      Smoking is associated with high incidence of cardiovascular events including acute coronary syndrome (ACS). We sought to characterize coronary plaques in patients with ongoing smoking using optical coherence tomography (OCT) compared to former smokers and nonsmokers. We identified 465 coronary plaques from 182 subjects who underwent OCT imaging for all three coronary arteries.
