Multi Detector-Row Computed Tomography (MDCT) Calcium Score of Heart Transplanted Patients

2014-08-27 03:45:58 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of the study is to determine if calcium score can be used as a predictor of coronary artery disease in heart transplanted patients, as it is used in non-transplanted persons.

Description

Several studies have shown that a negative calcium score is a strong independent negative predictor of coronary artery disease (CAD). CAD in heart transplants (HTx) differs from CAD lesions in native hearts. The aim of this study is to see if there is a similar relation between coronary artery calcium and CAD in transplanted hearts as in native hearts.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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 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 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.

Pathological processes of CORONARY ARTERIES that may derive from a congenital abnormality, atherosclerotic, or non-atherosclerotic cause.
