Coronary Artery Disease Management Using Multislice Computed Tomography and Magnetic Resonance Imaging
The primary objective of this study is to analyze the clinical value of a therapeutic management strategy based on the results of coronary CT angiography and functional MRI. The clinical value of CT and MRI will be analyzed in patients with suspected coronary artery disease.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Coronary Artery Bypass
Surgical therapy of ischemic coronary artery disease achieved by grafting a section of saphenous vein, internal mammary artery, or other substitute between the aorta and the obstructed coronary artery distal to the obstructive lesion.
Internal Mammary-coronary Artery Anastomosis
Direct myocardial revascularization in which the internal mammary artery is anastomosed to the right coronary artery, circumflex artery, or anterior descending coronary artery. The internal mammary artery is the most frequent choice, especially for a single graft, for coronary artery bypass surgery.
Coronary-subclavian Steal Syndrome
A complication of INTERNAL MAMMARY-CORONARY ARTERY ANASTOMOSIS whereby an occlusion or stenosis of the proximal SUBCLAVIAN ARTERY causes a reversal of the blood flow away from the CORONARY CIRCULATION, through the grafted INTERNAL MAMMARY ARTERY (internal thoracic artery), and back to the distal subclavian distribution.
Coronary Artery Disease
Pathological processes of CORONARY ARTERIES that may derive from a congenital abnormality, atherosclerotic, or non-atherosclerotic cause.
Abdominal artery that follows the curvature of the stomach. The right gastroepiploic artery is frequently used in CORONARY ARTERY BYPASS GRAFTING; MYOCARDIAL REVASCULARIZATION, and other vascular reconstruction.
The purpose of this study is to determine whether coronary artery CT scanning or nuclear stress testing is better at diagnosing chest pain patients with known coronary artery disease to se...

The present study relates to a new approach to coronary artery and coronary artery by-pass graft imaging, and more particularly to computed tomographic angiography following an aortic root...
It would be useful to study coronary arteriovenous difference of various markers in patients who are undergoing coronary angiography for suspected coronary artery disease. Environmental an...
There have been many advances in the test used to look for heart disease. An example of this newer technology is the Multislice CT scan (MSCT) and Positron Emission Tomography (PET) scans....
OBJECTIVE: Although aortic valve disease (AVD) is frequently associated with coronary artery disease (CAD), little is known about the impact of significant coronary artery disease on mortality after d...
Coronary artery perforation is a rare complication of percutaneous coronary intervention, but can result in cardiac tamponade and is thus potentially life-threatening. This report describes a rare cas...
OPINION STATEMENT: Fractional flow reserve (FFR) is an invasive pressure-derived index of epicardial stenosis severity used in the catheterization laboratory to assess the hemodynamic significance of...
The catheterization laboratory is an excellent resource for translational research projects requiring phenotypic analysis of coronary artery disease. Coronary angiography, a traditional method of quan...
The purpose of this prospective study was to investigate the association between the severity of coronary atherosclerosis in angiography and the risk of stroke in symptomatic coronary artery disease (...
