Adiponectin Profile in Asian Patients Undergoing Coronary Revascularization and Its Association With Plaque Vulnerability: IDEAS-ADIPO Study

Increased serum adiponectin levels were independently associated with increased culprit lesion necrotic core (NC) burden, suggesting a role for adiponectin in modulating coronary plaque vulnerability.
