Coronary artery atherosclerosis contributes to the leading cause of death worldwide. It is the principal cause of coronary artery disease (CAD), in which atherosclerotic changes are present within the walls of the coronary arteries. Plaque rupture is the predominant cause of acute coronary syndrome (ACS) and acute myocardial infarction (AMI). The international incidence of ACS and AMI, especially in developed countries, is similar to that in the United States.
