This thesis comprises 4 clinical studies aiming to explore the mechanisms related to coronary plaque destabilization, clinical outcomes of the no-reflow phenomenon, a novel treatment of ischaemia-reperfusion injury, and the pattern and temporal evolution of left ventricular myocardial fibrosis following myocardial infarction. Current risk prediction models for future cardiovascular events are derived from large scale population-based studies (such as that from the Framingham Heart Study), based on the presence of so-called traditional cardiovascular risk factors. However, it has long been recognized that atherothrombotic sequelae from atherosclerotic arterial di...
