The hypothesis of this study is that coronary angioplasty with stenting of right coronary artery (RCA) chronic total occlusion (CTO) improves myocardium perfusion. Thus a stress-MRI is a method of choice to evaluate the efficacy of RCA CTO recanalization.

Angioplasty is a commonly performed procedure for treating blockage of the blood vessels in the heart. Although this procedure is usually successful, it is often accompanied by a small deg...
To compare the efficacy of coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery with percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) in patients with multiple vessel coronary heart disease.
Distal embolization can occur during coronary angioplasty performed in the acute phase of myocardial infarction and is associated with poor long-term outcome. We hypothesize that the use o...
Angioplasty is a procedure which opens blocked heart arteries using balloons and/or stents. Most U.S. states and all national heart organizations require that angioplasty be done only at h...
The intention of this trial is to assess the safety and efficacy of Drug Eluting Balloon (DEB) application (SeQuent Please) to the side branch in percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) o...
Mineralocorticoid receptor antagonists (MRAs), such as spironolactone, eplerenone and finerenone, have an established role in the treatment of heart failure. However, many experimental and clinical st...
Patients with complex congenital heart defects may have different hemodynamic problems which require a variety of interventional procedures including angioplasty which involves using high-pressure bal...
The analytical paper summarized the results of recent studies of an association of depression, anxiety, and stress with coronary heart disease (CHD). Mental disorders are shown to be associated with i...
I read with great interest the article by Hagström et al.  about the association between psychosocial stress, such as depressive symptoms, loss of interest, living alone and financial stress, and...
Increase in heart rate triggers most ischemic episodes due to disbalance between myocardial oxygen delivery and consumption. Furthermore, increased heart rate is a modifiable risk factor in patients w...
A family of percutaneous techniques that are used to manage CORONARY OCCLUSION, including standard balloon angioplasty (PERCUTANEOUS TRANSLUMINAL CORONARY ANGIOPLASTY), the placement of intracoronary STENTS, and atheroablative technologies (e.g., ATHERECTOMY; ENDARTERECTOMY; THROMBECTOMY; PERCUTANEOUS TRANSLUMINAL LASER ANGIOPLASTY). PTCA was the dominant form of PCI, before the widespread use of stenting.
Use of a balloon catheter for dilatation of an occluded artery. It is used in treatment of arterial occlusive diseases, including renal artery stenosis and arterial occlusions in the leg. For the specific technique of balloon dilatation in coronary arteries, ANGIOPLASTY, TRANSLUMINAL, PERCUTANEOUS CORONARY is available.
Dilatation of an occluded coronary artery (or arteries) by means of a balloon catheter to restore myocardial blood supply.
Dilation of an occluded coronary artery (or arteries) by means of a balloon catheter to restore myocardial blood supply.
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.
Stress is caused by your perception of situations around you and then the reaction of your body to them. The automatic stress response to unexpected events is known as 'fight or flight'. Discovered by Walter Cannon in 1932, it is the release of h...
Radiology is the branch of medicine that studies imaging of the body; X-ray (basic, angiography, barium swallows), ultrasound, MRI, CT and PET. These imaging techniques can be used to diagnose, but also to treat a range of conditions, by allowing visuali...
