Abstract

Inflammation and structural factors such as a thin fibrous cap, positive remodeling and large lipid pool have been established as factors associated with coronary plaque instability. This study aimed to investigate the hypothesis that the differential in coronary artery compliance between stenotic and adjacent arterial segments is another factor associated with unstable coronary disease.
