This double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled, multi-center study will evaluate the safety and efficacy of dalcetrapib in patients hospitalized for an acute coronary syndrome (ACS). Tr...
This study will assess the effect of RO4607381, compared to placebo, on atherosclerotic plaque in patients with coronary heart disease (CHD) including patients with other CHD risk factors....
This study will evaluate the potential of RO4607381 to reduce cardiovascular morbidity and mortality in stable coronary heart disease patients with recent Acute Coronary Syndrome (ACS) and...
This study will assess the safety, tolerability and efficacy of RO4607381 in pat ients with coronary heart disease (CHD) or CHD risk equivalents. Patients will b e randomized to receive ei...
This 2 arm study will assess the long term safety and efficacy of RO4607381 in patients with coronary heart disease or a CHD risk equivalent who have completed study NC19453. Patients elig...
The xanthine oxidase (XO) system is a significant source of vascular oxidative stress, which is believed to impair endothelial function, an important contributor to atherosclerotic disease. We tested ...
This study investigated experiences of women with a primary diagnosis of ACS (NSTEMI & Unstable Angina). The study explored how women interpreted their risk for Coronary Heart Disease (CHD) and how th...
Clinical presentation of viral myocarditis can mimic acute coronary syndrome and making diagnosis of viral heart disease (VHD) may be challenging. The presence of coronary artery disease (CAD) does no...
To explore the effect of hyperuricemia on prognosis in patients with heart failure of coronary heart disease (CHD) after revascularization. A single-center retrospective study of all subjects who und...
Inflammatory cytokines play an important role in the pathogenesis of cardiovascular disease. Few studies have investigated the association between interleukin-35 (IL-35) genetic variants and the risk ...
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 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).
An imbalance between myocardial functional requirements and the capacity of the CORONARY VESSELS to supply sufficient blood flow. It is a form of MYOCARDIAL ISCHEMIA (insufficient blood supply to the heart muscle) caused by a decreased capacity of the coronary vessels.
A congenital coronary vessel anomaly in which the left main CORONARY ARTERY originates from the PULMONARY ARTERY instead of from AORTA. The congenital heart defect typically results in coronary artery FISTULA; LEFT-SIDED HEART FAILURE and MITRAL VALVE INSUFFICIENCY during the first months of life.
Coronary artery bypass surgery on a beating HEART without a CARDIOPULMONARY BYPASS (diverting the flow of blood from the heart and lungs through an oxygenator).
