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.

1) Establish normal value for coronary calcium scoring in Taiwan. 2) Find out the relationship of coronary calcium deposition and coronary artery stenosis. Propose a clinical management gu...
This study is a non-randomized prospective cohort study that will define the rate of index atherosclerotic plaque development in adults with a prior coronary artery calcium (CAC) score of ...
Computer tomography coronary angiogram (CTCA) has emerged as a noninvasive alternative to assessing coronary artery luminal disease. Although the use of noninvasive CTCA for the detection ...
To determine if 16-64 slice multidetector CT (MDCT) can replace the invasive procedure in patients scheduled for coronary angiography in order to exclude the presence of CAD
Patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) were enrolled. CAD was diagnosed by coronary angiography which also resulted Syntax score. Images of left and right ears were captured by a digi...
This study aimed to evaluate whether the coronary artery calcium score (CACS) measured with computed tomography coronary angiography (CTCA) predicts periprocedural myocardial infarction (PMI) in patie...
Coronary artery calcium is a marker of overall atherosclerotic plaque burden, corresponding to approximately 20% overall atherosclerotic plaque burden. Coronary artery calcium screening, most commonly...
Relationship between left main and left anterior descending arteries bifurcation angle and coronary artery calcium score in chronic kidney disease: A 3-dimensional analysis of coronary computed tomography.
A high coronary artery calcium score (CACS) predicts a poor prognosis in patients with coronary artery disease. We examined the relationship between the bifurcation angle and the CACS of the left main...
Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death worldwide and describes many heart and vessel disorders. One of these disorders, coronary artery disease (CAD), occurs because of narrowed or block...
We have developed the method for dynamic 320-row multidetector computed tomography (MDCT)-derived quantitative coronary flow reserve (CFRCT) and hyperemic myocardial blood flow (MBFCT). We evaluated d...
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.
