Atherothrombosis is a systemic disease of the vessel wall that causes distinct clinical manifestations, depending on the affected circulatory bed and the characteristics of the individual lesions.1 These lesions may be quite heterogeneous.1 Thus, the clinical manifestations of atherothrombosis of the coronary arteries, of the arteries supplying the central nervous system, of the aorta, and of the peripheral circulation can be significantly different. Disruption-prone plaques in the coronary… CONTINUE READING
