Physical Exercise and Coronary Artery Plaque Composition

2014-07-23 22:00:43 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to examine the effect of two different physical exercise protocols on changes in coronary artery plaque composition and development of in-stent restenosis in patients treated with percutaneous coronary intervention with stent implantation. The investigators will compare aerobic interval training and moderate continuous training. Both exercise protocols have a duration of 12 weeks. The investigators hypothesize that aerobic interval training is superior to moderate continuous training regarding effects on the composition of coronary artery plaques and a reduction in the development of in-stent restenosis.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

Financial support for training including both student stipends and loans and training grants to institutions.

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.

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.

On the job training programs for personnel carried out within an institution or agency. It includes orientation programs.
