Acute ischemic syndromes and progression of coronary atherosclerosis

  • W. Rafflenbeul
Conference paper


The natural course of coronary atherosclerosis has to be studied by repeat coronary angiograms during medical treatment of patients over prolonged periods of time. Although numerous coronary angiographies are carried out each year only a limited number of patients are restudied under controlled conditions.
