Abstract

Correlation of Within-Plaque Inflammatory Biomarkers with Coronary Plaque Subtypes Categorized by Contrast-Enhanced Coronary Computerized Tomography

The acute coronary syndromes (ACS) (unstable angina or myocardial infarction with or without ST-segment elevation) remain a major public health problem in the developed and increasingly in the developing world. Each year, approximately 1.3 million Americans suffer an ACS.
