原始语种摘要: Abstract(#br)Background(#br)Little is known about the influence of coronary atherosclerosis progression on the risk of major adverse cardiac events (MACE). Similarly, differences between men and women regarding atherosclerosis progression are poorly understood. The purpose of this study was to investigate the progression of coronary atherosclerosis by coronary CT angiography (coronary CTA) in men and women, and to evaluate its prognostic value regarding MACE.(#br)Methods(#br)This study included 1046 patients with suspected coronary artery disease (CAD) who underwent serial coronary CTA because of new or worsening symptoms or because follow-up coronary CTA had been recommended by attending physicians. Coronary atherosclerosis was semi-quantitatively assessed as follows: three-vessel plaque...
