Research Study Summary
Patients are needed to participate in a clinical research study of Intravascular Near Infrared Spectroscopy to evaluate Myocardial Infarction, Angina, Coronary Artery Disease or Myocardial Ischemia
Research Study Title
Chemometric Observation of Lipid Core Plaques of Interest in Native Coronary Arteries Registry
In April 2008, a coronary catheter based imaging system, LipiScan, was cleared by the FDA
for use in detecting lipid core containing containing plaques of interest (LCP). These
plaques are rich in cholesterol. The way that cholesterol and other lipids deposit with the
coronary artery is unique to each patient. This study is an organized attempt to observe
the LCP and the variety of ways that it presents in patients as detected by this recently
approved device. This information will be used for physician training and to observe the
behavior of the LCP in response to no therapy and currently approved therapies. The purpose
of this project is further medical knowledge of the LCP and its treatment.
