Abstract:

The aim of the present project is to 1. Utilize near infrared intra-coronary spectroscopy as an adjunctivetechnique during cardiac catheterization to identify potential vulnerable plaque morphology 2. Relate its presence to intermediate and long-term outcomes inpatients defined as angina, myocardial infarction, death, congestive heart failure, stroke and need for revascularizationover five years. 3. To compare near infrared intra-coronary spectroscopy data to that from coronary calcium scoring, angiographic findings and intracoronary ultrasound in predicting those outcomes in 2.
