Relationship between markers of plaque vulnerability in optical coherence tomography and atherosclerotic progression in adult patients with heart transplantation.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Cardiac allograft vasculopathy (CAV) is an accelerated form of coronary artery disease, and optical coherence tomography (OCT) provides detailed microstructural information. The current study was designed to test the hypothesis that markers of plaque vulnerability derived from OCT could predict CAV progression after heart transplantation (HTx… (More)
