BACKGROUND Intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) is increasingly used as an end point in studies aimed at reducing progression or inducing regression of coronary artery disease. However, data linking serial changes by IVUS with clinical outcomes are scarce. METHODS AND RESULTS In the absence of a validated risk score for secondary prevention, we compared 3 established risk scores for primary prevention--PROCAM, SCORE, and Framingham--with plaque progression and lumen reduction as assessed with… CONTINUE READING
