We sought to determine the risk of obstructive coronary artery disease (oCAD) associated with noncoronary atherosclerosis (cerebrovascular disease [CVD] or peripheral arterial disease [PAD]) and major adverse cardiac events following percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI).

After out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) associated with obstructive coronary artery disease (CAD), the risk of recurrence during the early period is unclear and the indication for anti-arrhythmic ...
Although coronary artery disease (CAD) is a major cause of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA), there has been no convinced data on the necessity of routine invasive coronary angiography (ICA) in OH...
Between 10 and 15% of patients admitted for non-ST-segment elevation acute coronary syndrome (NSTE-ACS) show no obstructive coronary artery disease (NO-CAD) at angiography. Coronary microvascular spas...
Tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) have assumed an increasingly vital role in treating various hematologic and oncologic malignancies. However, adverse effects with respect to vascular disease have bee...
While patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS) presenting with non-obstructive coronary artery disease (CAD) are at high risk for cardiovascular mortality and morbidity, detailed lesion characteris...
Coronary artery disease is the leading cause of death in USA. Contemporary cardiac care has substantially reduced mortality and morbidity in patients with severe coronary artery disease. H...
The investigator prospectively enroll 30,000 outpatients who were suspected of coronary artery disease (CAD) and underwent cardiac computed tomography angiography (CTA). The endpoint was m...
Non-obstructive coronary artery disease (CAD), particularly common in women, has been associated with impaired quality of life and risk of recurrent hospitalizations. Several studies have ...
Coronary artery disease (CAD) is the leading cause of morbidity and mortality in developed countries. In addition, many patients suffer from valvular and aortic disease. Although various t...
This single-center clinical trial is designed to evaluate the CardioFlux magnetocardiograph diagnostic imaging system to predict major adverse cardiac events (MACE) in patients referred fo...
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.
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.
A disorder of cardiac function caused by insufficient blood flow to the muscle tissue of the heart. The decreased blood flow may be due to narrowing of the coronary arteries (CORONARY ARTERY DISEASE), to obstruction by a thrombus (CORONARY THROMBOSIS), or less commonly, to diffuse narrowing of arterioles and other small vessels within the heart. Severe interruption of the blood supply to the myocardial tissue may result in necrosis of cardiac muscle (MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION).
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.
A malformation that is characterized by a muscle bridge over a segment of the CORONARY ARTERIES. Systolic contractions of the muscle bridge can lead to narrowing of coronary artery; coronary compression; MYOCARDIAL ISCHEMIA; MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION; and SUDDEN CARDIAC DEATH.
Stroke - Cerebrovascular Disease (CVA)
A stroke is a serious medical condition that occurs when the blood supply to part of the brain is cut off. Strokes are a medical emergency and prompt treatment is essential because the sooner a person receives treatment for a stroke, the less damage is ...
