Abstract

As the 21 st century progresses, the prevalence of coronary artery disease (CAD) will reach epidemic proportions in both the Western and the developing world. In the US alone, it is estimated that more than 11 million people have CAD (1). As our population ages, and as the frequency of diabetes increases (2), these numbers will be expected to increase exponentially. The associated morbidity and costs exceed those of any other chronic disease in modern society. While tremendous progress in diagnostic techniques as well as in medical and interventional management has occurred over recent decades, the impetus for more novel strategies remains.
