Summary of "Neoatherosclerosis - From basic concept to clinical implication."

Chronic inflammation within the coronary arteries with infiltration of macrophages into the endothelium results in atherosclerosis. Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) remains the standard of care for the treatment of most cases of atherosclerotic coronary artery disease (CAD). Intracoronary stents, either bare metal (BMS) or drug eluting (DES), can successfully treat luminal stenoses within the coronary arteries. Following successful PCI however, neointimal proliferation can develop within the deployed stent. Similar to the pathophysiology of native vessel atherosclerosis there is chronic inflammation within the neointima with infiltration of macrophages, a process called neoatherosclerosis, and can result in in-stent restenosis (ISR) and even acute thrombotic, coronary arterial occlusion following disruption of the neoatheroma. Neoatherosclerosis is a heterogeneous, pathobiological complication of PCI that can present more with angina recurrence or in its most extreme form with an acute coronary syndrome (ACS) In this review article, we will discuss possible mechanisms, clinical challenges, and the future therapies of neoatherosclerosis.

Calcified neoatherosclerosis causing in-stent restenosis: prevalence, predictors, and implications.

Neoatherosclerosis has emerged as a major cause of in-stent restenosis (ISR). Although this entity has been described as a unique process, optical coherence tomography (OCT) enables depiction of disti...

Teaching Basic Nursing Care: Nurse Preceptors' Perceptions about Changing the Teaching Context from the Clinical Setting to a School Simulation Lab.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Pre-planned studies of the safety, efficacy, or optimum dosage schedule (if appropriate) of one or more diagnostic, therapeutic, or prophylactic drugs, devices, or techniques selected according to predetermined criteria of eligibility and observed for predefined evidence of favorable and unfavorable effects. This concept includes clinical trials conducted both in the U.S. and in other countries.

Analysis of word concepts by the association of polar adjectives, e.g., good-bad, with the concept, father. The adjectives are usually scaled in 7 steps. The subject's placement of the concept on the adjectival scale indicates the connotative meaning of the concept.

One of several basic proteins released from EOSINOPHIL cytoplasmic granules. Eosinophil major basic protein is a 14-kDa cytotoxic peptide with a pI of 10.9. In addition to its direct cytotoxic effects, it stimulates the release of variety of INFLAMMATION MEDIATORS.

A group of 7 proteins produced from a single gene by alternate splicing found in central and peripheral nervous system myelin. The major basic protein (MBP) has long been of interest because it is the antigen, that, when injected into an animal, elicits a cellular immune response that produces the CNS autoimmune disease called experimental allergic encephalomyelitis (ENCEPHALOMYELITIS, ALLERGIC). In the peripheral nervous system, myelin basic protein 18.5-kDa is often referred to as the P1 protein. (From Siegel et al., Basic Neurochemistry, 5th ed, p130, 133)

Component of the NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTH. It supports and conducts research, both basic and clinical, on the normal and diseases nervous system. It was established in 1950.
