Many trials suggested that lipid lowering therapy could significantly reduce cardiovascular events. Enhancing stability of vulnerable plaque is probably the main reason by which statins reduce adverse coronary events. The size of lipid core and the fibrous cap thickness (FCT) are the major determinants of plaque vulnerability. So, it is very important to accurately evaluate changes in plaque after stains therapy.
Previous reports suggested that intensive lipid lowering therapy provide more significantly clinical benefit compared with moderate lipid lowering therapy.Such benefit may contribute to the changes in following parameters: FCT, lipid arc(quadrants), TCFA, macrophage, plaque disruption, and thrombus measured by OCT, and plaque burden and remodeling index by IVUS.
Current intravascular imaging modalities, such as optical coherence tomography (OCT) and intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) can provide in vivo quantitative and qualitative information of coronary plaques. However, there were few studies aimed at monitoring the progression of coronary plaques in patients receiving statin therapy by OCT combined with IVUS.
Therefore, the study we designed were to compare the effect of the rosuvastatin 10mg, atorvastatin 20mg and atorvastatin 60mg treatment on the changes in FCT and lipid core arc by OCT and plaque burden by IVUS of coronary atherosclerotic plaques.

Surgical therapy of ischemic coronary artery disease achieved by grafting a section of saphenous vein, internal mammary artery, or other substitute between the aorta and the obstructed coronary artery distal to the obstructive lesion.
Direct myocardial revascularization in which the internal mammary artery is anastomosed to the right coronary artery, circumflex artery, or anterior descending coronary artery. The internal mammary artery is the most frequent choice, especially for a single graft, for coronary artery bypass surgery.
A complication of INTERNAL MAMMARY-CORONARY ARTERY ANASTOMOSIS whereby an occlusion or stenosis of the proximal SUBCLAVIAN ARTERY causes a reversal of the blood flow away from the CORONARY CIRCULATION, through the grafted INTERNAL MAMMARY ARTERY (internal thoracic artery), and back to the distal subclavian distribution.
A congenital coronary vessel anomaly in which the left main CORONARY ARTERY originates from the PULMONARY ARTERY instead of from AORTA. The congenital heart defect typically results in coronary artery FISTULA; LEFT-SIDED HEART FAILURE and MITRAL VALVE INSUFFICIENCY during the first months of life.
Pathological processes of CORONARY ARTERIES that may derive from a congenital abnormality, atherosclerotic, or non-atherosclerotic cause.
