Clinical Trial Summary

RESSURE-NIRS registry is designed to investigate clinical and pathophysiological characteristics of NIRS-derived lipid-rich plaque in patients with coronary artery disease. This is an on-going multi-center prospective registry in Japan.

Clinical Trial Description

NIRS imaging is an invasive intravascular imaging modality to quantitatively visualize lipid-rich atheroma in vivo. While NIRS-derived lipid-rich plaque has been shown to associate with cardiovascular events, there is limited clinical data about the association of this high-risk plaque with risk factors, medication use, prognosis and response of PCI. RESSURE-NIRS registry is an on-going multi-center prospective registry in Japan, which enroll subjects with coronary artery disease who received NIRS imaging to evaluate coronary atherosclerosis. The primary outcome is maximum 4-mm lipid core burden index at coronary lesions measured by NIRS imaging. Secondary major outcomes include entire lipid core burden index, plaque volume, plaque attenuation and echo-lucent area. The anticipated number of study subjects is 2000 cases. ;
