  A 60-year-old male diabetic has experienced angina
on exertion for several years. A previous coronary angiog-
raphy revealed 75% stenosis of the left anterior descending
coronary artery and 50% stenosis of the right coronary
artery. His blood pressure is 110180 mm Hg. In the past
few weeks, the frequency and severity of his anginal at-
tacks have increased, and sometimes the pain occurs even
when he is lying in bed. The most likely explanation for
these changes in his symptoms is
O (A) Hypertrophy of the ischemic myocardium with in-
creased oxygen demands
O (B) Increasing stenosis of the right coronary artery
O (C) Fissuring of the plaque in left coronary artery with
superimposed mural (partial) thrombosis
O (D) Sudden complete thrombotic occlusion of the right
and left coronary arteries
O (E) Reduction in oxygen-carrying capacity from pulmo-
nary congestion
