Risk Factors of Individuals With Coronary Artery Disease

2014-08-27 03:47:23 | BioPortfolio

Summary

It would be useful to study coronary arteriovenous difference of various markers in patients who are undergoing coronary angiography for suspected coronary artery disease. Environmental and genetic factors may play a role in the progression of coronary artery disease. The goal of this project is to establish a series of cross-sectional / case-control studies to evaluate risk factors of coronary artery disease in China.

Description

This study is designed to investigate the epidemiologic, genetic, laboratory and clinical characterization of individuals with coronary artery disease. The study group will consist of consecutive patients who are undergoing coronary angiography for suspected coronary artery disease. The diagnosis of coronary artery disease will be confirmed by coronary angiography performed with the Judkins technique using a quantitative coronary angiographic system. Coronary artery disease will be considered to be present if there is a diameter stenosis of at least 50% in at least one of the three major epicardial coronary arteries. The number of diseased vessels will be determined and a classification of 1-, 2-, and 3-vessel disease will be used. Coronary artery segments will be defined according to the Coronary Artery Surgery Study classification. Blood samples from vein and coronary artery will be collected. We will study coronary arteriovenous difference of various markers. Urinary samples will be obtained the day of coronary angiography. We will explore the environmental (including family history, life style, diet, physical activity, neuropsychological functioning,plasma levels of oxidative stress factors, angiogenic factors, and inflammatory markers, etc.) and genetic (including oxidative stress factors and inflammatory factors, etc.) risk factors. We will study the association between various environmental risk factors with the clinical characterization and correlation between the genetic polymorphisms and the presence of coronary artery disease.

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.
