In brief: Very little
Once established, atherosclerotic plaque has very little chance of decreasing.
The best course is to begin risk modifications and hope to stop the progression of plaque. There are some reports of decreasing plaque thickness with extreme cholesterol lowering, but the clinical correlation to decreased mi and stoke had not been proven.
