Narrative objectives1 To examine whether aggressive lipid lowering treatment with Rosuvastatin decreases coronary plaque in hyperlipidemic patients, who are diagnosed to be necessary to undergo elective percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), by randomized parallel controlled study. The target is a group with no administration of statin and primary endpoints of the efficacy are changes of minimal lumen diameter (MLD) and average lumen diameter (ALD), which measured by quantitative coronary angiography (QCA).

Developmental phase Not applicable

Primary outcomes Changes from baseline in MLD and ALD at month 24
Key secondary outcomes Virtual histology intravascular ultrasound (VH-IVUS) and 64-row multi-detector-row computed tomography (64-row MDCT) will be conducted in patients who meet enablement requirement, and the relationship between changes in quantity of coronary plaque and quality of plaque will be evaluatedexploratory .
Changes of intima media thickness (IMT) in carotid artery will be exploratory evaluated in patients who meet enablement requirement.
