From vulnerable plaque to vulnerable patient: a call for new definitions and risk assessment strategies: Part I.
TLDR
The term "vulnerable patient" may be more appropriate and is proposed now for the identification of subjects with high likelihood of developing cardiac events in the near future and a quantitative method for cumulative risk assessment of vulnerable patients needs to be developed.

Association of Influenza Vaccination and Reduced Risk of Recurrent Myocardial Infarction
TLDR
Vaccination against influenza was negatively associated with the development of new MI during the same influenza season in patients with chronic CHD, however, to address causal inference, examination of prospective data sets will be needed.
Image-Based Gating of Intravascular Ultrasound Pullback Sequences
TLDR
A frame-gating method for IVUS pullbacks that mimics ECG but will automatically choose the fraction of the cycle that renders the most stable gated frame set, which is gauged by measuring interframe similarity.
Influenza Infection Exerts Prominent Inflammatory and Thrombotic Effects on the Atherosclerotic Plaques of Apolipoprotein E–Deficient Mice
TLDR
This study shows that influenza infection promotes inflammation, smooth muscle cell proliferation, and fibrin deposition in atherosclerotic plaques in mice model of atherosclerosis.
The role of periadventitial fat in atherosclerosis.
TLDR
There is a striking paucity of data on the relationship between the periadventitial fat of coronary arteries and atherosclerosis and greater insight into this relationship might be instrumental in making strides into the pathophysiology, diagnosis, and treatment of coronary artery disease.
Reproducibility and variability of digital thermal monitoring of vascular reactivity
TLDR
This study evaluates the variability and reproducibility of DTM measurements, and hypothesized that DTM is reproducible, and its variability falls within the accepted range of clinical diagnostic tests.

From Vulnerable Plaque to Vulnerable Patient
TLDR
All types of atherosclerotic plaques with high likelihood of thrombotic complications and rapid progression should be considered as vulnerable plaques, and a classification for clinical as well as pathological evaluation of vulnerable plaque is proposed.
