Cardiovascular mortality of patients with combined peripheral arterial disease (PAD) and coronary artery disease (CAD) is twice as high as that in those with either disease alone. It is known that patients with PAD undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention have a higher incidence of adverse cardiac events such as myocardial infarction or target vessel revascularization.

Name: Coronary artery disease
We used coronary computed tomography angiography (CTA) to determine plaque characteristics predicting individual late plaque events precipitating acute coronary syndromes (ACS) in a cohort of asympto...
Carotid and coronary artery disease are two major atherosclerotic conditions that have shown an increased prevalence in the last three decades that is associated with high morbidity and mortality. Rec...
Diabetes mellitus (DM) is a major risk factor for cardiovascular events. We aimed to investigate the coronary plaque phenotype of diabetic patients who presented with acute coronary syndromes by optic...
Echo-attenuated plaque (EA) on intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) is related to poor outcomes after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in acute coronary syndrome (ACS) patients. However, the clinic...
Objective To examine the association of carotid artery plaque with the incident coronary heart disease and stroke events in Chinese patients and explore whether the association differs between patient...
The OCT-FORMIDABLE register will include with a retrospective fashion all consecutive patients that perform OCT on culprit and not culprit plaque in any subset in patients with ACS. Clinic...
Disruption of an atherosclerotic plaque is responsible for at least two-thirds of acute coronary syndrome. Thus, identification of plaques vulnerable to rupture has become important. The n...
Atherosclerosis is the most common cause of stroke. The aims of the project are to compare the visual and digital analysis of sonographic images of atherosclerotic plaque in carotids in vi...
Prediabetes is a disorder of glucose metabolism that reflects the natural history of progression from normoglycaemia to type 2 diabetes mellitus. Patients with prediabetes have impaired gl...
The broad objective is to advance our understanding of both in vivo anatomical and functional changes that are present in the coronary arteries in women who have an acute coronary syndrome...
Percutaneous transluminal procedure for removing atheromatous plaque from the coronary arteries. Both directional (for removing focal atheromas) and rotational (for removing concentric atheromatous plaque) atherectomy devices have been used.
Abnormal balloon- or sac-like dilatation in the wall of CORONARY VESSELS. Most coronary aneurysms are due to CORONARY ATHEROSCLEROSIS, and the rest are due to inflammatory diseases, such as KAWASAKI DISEASE.
A piperazine derivative and PLATELET AGGREGATION INHIBITOR that is used to prevent THROMBOSIS in patients with ACUTE CORONARY SYNDROME; UNSTABLE ANGINA and MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION, as well as in those undergoing PERCUTANEOUS CORONARY INTERVENTIONS.
Malformations of CORONARY VESSELS, either arteries or veins. Included are anomalous origins of coronary arteries; ARTERIOVENOUS FISTULA; CORONARY ANEURYSM; MYOCARDIAL BRIDGING; and others.
Complete blockage of blood flow through one of the CORONARY ARTERIES, usually from CORONARY ATHEROSCLEROSIS.
