Association of coronary plaque composition and arterial remodelling: a virtual histology analysis by intravascular ultrasound.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Conflicting data have been reported about the correlation between plaque composition assessed by virtual histology (VH) and remodelling index (RI). AIM To evaluate, in a larger patient population, the relationship between plaque morphology obtained by VH and arterial remodelling. METHODS AND RESULTS VH intravascular ultrasound was performed… (More)
