Coronary computed tomography angiography (CCTA) has emerged as an important, non-invasive imaging modality for the assessment of coronary vascular disease. However, CCTA as a screening tool still has issues with radiation exposure and cost in asymptomatic adults. In this study, we investigated the relationship between cardio-metabolic biomarkers and coronary artery stenosis on CCTA in asymptomatic, apparently healthy adults.

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the feasibility of the stenosis-related quantitative perfusion ratio (QPR) for detecting hemodynamically significant coronary artery disease (CAD). Twenty-sev...
"Synchronous versus Staged Carotid Endarterectomy (CEA) and Coronary Artery Bypass Graft (CABG) for Patients with Concomitant Severe Coronary and Carotid Artery Stenosis: a Systematic Review and Meta-analysis".
Due to the systemic nature of atherosclerosis, arteries at different sites are commonly simultaneously affected. As a result, severe Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) requiring Coronary Artery Bypass Graf...
Recent coronary surgery practice is to graft arterial conduits to more severely stenosed coronary targets than in the past. We aimed to investigate postoperative arterial graft patency with native cor...
To evaluate the predictive accuracy of SYNTAX score (SS) I and II for detecting significant carotid artery stenosis (CAS) in patients with multivessel coronary artery disease undergoing coronary arter...
Synchronous Carotid Endarterectomy and Coronary Artery Bypass Graft (CABG) versus staged Carotid Artery Stenting and CABG for Patients with Concomitant Severe Coronary and Carotid Stenosis: a Systematic Review and Meta-analysis.
Due to the systemic nature of atherosclerosis, medium and large arteries at different sites are commonly simultaneously affected. As a result, severe coronary artery disease (CAD) requiring coronary a...
A considerable proportion of patients with clinically suspected coronary artery disease (CAD) do not have angiographic signs of luminal narrowing caused by coronary atherosclerosis. In pat...
We propose to develop a computational framework involving a novel automatic image segmentation algorithm based on CTA images, an artery model reconstruction algorithm for stenosis detectio...
The investigators' rationale was to evaluate whether a 64-slice CT scanner allows accurate measurement of computed tomographic changes in coronary artery flow profiles and whether CT flow ...
In this study, the investigators hypothesized that significant proportion of patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) has reduced capacity of glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) secretion, ...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the feasibility of acquisition of coronary blood flow velocity signals over the whole length of the LAD with transthoracic pulsed Doppler, and to e...
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.
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.
Narrowing or constriction of a coronary artery.
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.
Use of a balloon catheter for dilatation of an occluded artery. It is used in treatment of arterial occlusive diseases, including renal artery stenosis and arterial occlusions in the leg. For the specific technique of balloon dilatation in coronary arteries, ANGIOPLASTY, TRANSLUMINAL, PERCUTANEOUS CORONARY is available.
Radiology is the branch of medicine that studies imaging of the body; X-ray (basic, angiography, barium swallows), ultrasound, MRI, CT and PET. These imaging techniques can be used to diagnose, but also to treat a range of conditions, by allowing visuali...
Blood is a specialized bodily fluid that delivers necessary substances to the body's cells (in animals) – such as nutrients and oxygen – and transports waste products away from those same cells. In vertebrates, it is composed of blo...
