Relation of response of subclinical atherosclerosis detected by electron beam tomography to baseline low-density lipoprotein cholesterol levels.

Author information

Beth Israel Medical Center, New York, New York 10003, USA.


Calcified plaque progression by electron beam tomography was evaluated in 176 aggressively treated asymptomatic patients. Similar plaque progression was noted irrespective of baseline low-density lipoprotein cholesterol levels, including those with low-density lipoprotein cholesterol <100 mg/dl. These findings indicate that subclinical atherosclerosis may respond to drug therapy in a fashion parallel to that of clinical disease demonstrated in the Heart Protection Study.
