Predictors of coronary arterial remodeling patterns in patients with myocardial ischemia.

Abstract

Preangioplasty intravascular ultrasound in 81 patients showed that adaptive remodeling occurred in 35% and constrictive remodeling in 34%. Multivariate analysis showed that smoking and fibrocalcific plaques were associated with constrictive remodeling, whereas small vessel size and hypercholesterolemia were associated with adaptive remodeling.
