Abstract

BACKGROUND: Factors leading to coronary remodeling and relationship between remodeling patterns and clinical presentation remain unclear. METHODS: Seventy-five culprit lesions of 75 patients with acute coronary syndrome(ACS)(n=9) and stable angina(SA)(n=6)(60 men and 15 women; mean age 56+/-10 years) were studied by intravascular ultrasound. Remodeling index(RI) was calculated as culprit lesion vessel area(VA)/proximal reference VA. We defined: 1)compensatory remodeling(CpR) as RI> or =1.1; 2)constrictive remodeling(CsR) as RI< or =0.9; 3)no remodeling(NR) as 0.9
