OBJECTIVES The goal of this study was to demonstrate that intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) examination of native coronary arteries does not result in an acceleration of the atherosclerotic process. BACKGROUND Intravascular ultrasound is increasingly used to assess the effects of pharmacologic agents on atherosclerosis. METHODS Intravascular ultrasound examinations of one coronary artery and coronary angiography were performed in 525 patients at baseline. Patients then underwent a follow-up… CONTINUE READING
