Rosuvastatin combined with ramipril significantly reduced atheroma volume by anti-inflammatory mechanism: Comparative analysis with rosuvastatin alone by intravascular ultrasound.
Summary of "Rosuvastatin combined with ramipril significantly reduced atheroma volume by anti-inflammatory mechanism: Comparative analysis with rosuvastatin alone by intravascular ultrasound."
We tested the effects of rosuvastatin combined with ramipril on atheroma volume and its mechanism in de novo, intermediate coronary artery disease.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
The volume of BLOOD passing through the HEART per unit of time. It is usually expressed as liters (volume) per minute so as not to be confused with STROKE VOLUME (volume per beat).
Air that is reduced in volume by pressure.
Total Lung Capacity
The volume of air contained in the lungs at the end of a maximal inspiration. It is the equivalent to each of the following sums: VITAL CAPACITY plus RESIDUAL VOLUME; INSPIRATORY CAPACITY plus FUNCTIONAL RESIDUAL CAPACITY; TIDAL VOLUME plus INSPIRATORY RESERVE VOLUME plus functional residual capacity; or tidal volume plus inspiratory reserve volume plus EXPIRATORY RESERVE VOLUME plus residual volume.
The volume of the HEART, usually relating to the volume of BLOOD contained within it at various periods of the cardiac cycle. The amount of blood ejected from a ventricle at each beat is STROKE VOLUME.
Volume of circulating BLOOD. It is the sum of the PLASMA VOLUME and ERYTHROCYTE VOLUME.
Abstract Background: Previous imaging studies have demonstrated that the beneficial impact of high-dose statins on the progression of coronary atherosclerosis associates with their ability to lower le...
The aim of this study was to explore potential herb-drug interaction between danshensu or ursolic acid and rosuvastatin. Compared to the control group given rosuvastatin alone, the concurrent use of d...
Background/Aims: We studied the effect of the combined treatment with an angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor (ramipril) and eplerenone compared with ramipril alone in streptozocin-induced di...
OBJECTIVES:: This study aimed to demonstrate three-dimensional (3D) visualization of early/inflammatory arterial atheroma using intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) and targeted echogenic immunoliposomes (...
Dry and persistent cough is one of the commonest side effects experienced by patients treated with angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors for the therapy of hypertension and congestive heart f...
The purpose of this study is to see if 40 mg of rosuvastatin taken daily will reduce the atherosclerosis (fatty deposits) in your arteries
Aim of the study is to compare in hypertensive patients the effect of one year therapy with ACE-inhibitor (RAMIPRIL) or angiotensin II receptor blocker (IRBESARTAN) on left atrial remodell...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate lapaquistat acetate, once daily (QD), taken alone or with rosuvastatin on cholesterol levels in treating patients with elevated cholesterol.
A study to evaluate the low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) lowering efficacy of the addition of ezetimibe to rosuvastatin compared with doubling dose of rosuvastatin in patients t...
The purpose of this study is to determine if a dose of ramipril combined with a normal dose of telmisartan 80 mg will be more effective than ramipril 20 mg in reducing microalbuminuria in...
