BACKGROUND The association of the tissue characteristics of carotid plaques with coronary artery disease has attracted interest. The present study compared the tissue characteristics of carotid plaques in patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS) with those in patients with stable angina pectoris (SAP) using the iPlaque system, which is based on ultrasound integrated backscatter. METHODS AND RESULTS Carotid ultrasound examinations were performed in 26 patients with ACS, and 38 age- and… CONTINUE READING
