As of 2020, approximately 126 million individuals around the world are affected by atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD). Patients are often asymptomatic until the disease advances and life-threatening sequelae, such as myocardial infarction and ischemic cardiomyopathy, ensue. The main pathological process that leads to ASCVD is atherosclerosis, an inflammatory disease of the arteries associated with lipid deposition and metabolic changes. The management of coronary artery atherosclerosis is typically risk-based and generally entails lifestyle modifications and pharmacologic therapy.
