Olcott 1931 “plaque rupture” Leary 1934 “rupture of atheromatous abscess” Wartman 1938 “rupture-induced occlusion” Horn 1940 “plaque fissure” Helpern 1957 “plaque erosion” Crawford 1961 “plaque thrombosis” Gore 1963 “plaque ulceration” Friedman 1964 “macrophage accumulation” Byers 1964 “thrombogenic gruel” Chapman 1966 “plaque rupture” Plaque Fissure in Human Coronary Thrombosis (Abstract) Fed. Proc. 1964, 23, 443 Constantinidis P. “The destruction of the hyalinized wall separating lumen from the atheroma was almost always observed to be preceded by or associated with its invasion by lipid containing macrophages.” Friedman and van den Bovenkamp 1965
  6. 6. Recycling of Science and Missed Opportunities to Save Lives • If plaque rupture was broadly communicated between all investigators and clinicians involved in the field of cardiovascular disease, in other words, if cardiovascular pathologists, clinicians, and biologists in 1960s perhaps: – Thermal detection could have been in clinical trial in 1970s. We could not have OCT which needs fast computer processing but NIR spectroscopy could have been a possibility as they were screening lean meet from fat in food industry in 1970s – Plaque immunology could have been fully investigated by 1980 and specific immune markers of plaque inflammation might have been available as a cheap bedside test to all primary care physicians in 2001. – … – Millions of lives including our grand parents and parents, friends and relatives could have been saved to enjoy a few more years with their families...
