BACKGROUND Despite being a relatively widely-used non-invasive parameter of endothelial dysfunction, little is known regarding the relationship between flow-mediated dilatation (FMD) and coronary plaque vulnerability in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD). METHODS 111 CAD patients (age; 68.9 ± 9.3) who underwent both coronary intervention and FMD were enrolled. Spectral analyses of intravascular ultrasound radiofrequency data for both culprit and non-culprit lesions were performed… CONTINUE READING
