OBJECTIVES The goal of this study was to determine factors contributing to the biomechanical properties of coronary arteries in people with and without angiographic coronary artery disease (CAD). BACKGROUND The stiffness of the aorta is known to increase with increasing age and in the presence of CAD. However, little is known about the mechanics of coronary arteries, which may have important clinical consequences. METHODS Intravascular ultrasound was used to determine the mechanical… CONTINUE READING
