Many people in the UK have ischaemic heart disease. Insufficient blood supply to the heart muscle means that it functions inefficiently, and leads to symptoms of shortness of breath, chest...
Coronary artery disease is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality in our society. It is initiated by the dysfunction of the lining of coronary arteries. There are several repair mechan...
In this study, the risk of opioid medications on coronary heart disease in adults is investigated. Patients with the necessity of a coronary angiography and control patients with a non-car...
The purpose of the study is to get a better understanding of patients who have multi-vessel coronary artery disease (blockages in more than one vessel bringing blood to the heart) and have...
The purpose of this study is to test a new way to measure the oxygen level in the mixed venous blood system (the system that carries blood collected from all over the body to the heart), w...
The aim of this study was to explore the differences in microRNA (miRNA) profiles in peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) between coronary heart disease (CHD) patients with and without heart fai...
Monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFAs) improve blood lipid profiles in intervention studies, but prospective evidence with regard to MUFA intake and coronary heart disease (CHD) risk is limited and contr...
Coronary arteries are responsible for maintaining blood supply to the heart. When these arteries get blocked due to plaque deposition, the corresponding pathological condition is referred to as corona...
Red cell distribution width (RDW) is a standard component of the automated blood count, and is of prognostic value in heart failure and coronary heart disease. We investigated the association between ...
Hypertension is associated with increased clinical and subclinical coronary artery disease (CAD); however, the relationship between blood pressure and coronary plaque volume is unclear. We examined th...
A disorder of cardiac function caused by insufficient blood flow to the muscle tissue of the heart. The decreased blood flow may be due to narrowing of the coronary arteries (CORONARY ARTERY DISEASE), to obstruction by a thrombus (CORONARY THROMBOSIS), or less commonly, to diffuse narrowing of arterioles and other small vessels within the heart. Severe interruption of the blood supply to the myocardial tissue may result in necrosis of cardiac muscle (MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION).
An imbalance between myocardial functional requirements and the capacity of the CORONARY VESSELS to supply sufficient blood flow. It is a form of MYOCARDIAL ISCHEMIA (insufficient blood supply to the heart muscle) caused by a decreased capacity of the coronary vessels.
A short vein that collects about two thirds of the venous blood from the MYOCARDIUM and drains into the RIGHT ATRIUM. Coronary sinus, normally located between the LEFT ATRIUM and LEFT VENTRICLE on the posterior surface of the heart, can serve as an anatomical reference for cardiac procedures.
Coronary artery bypass surgery on a beating HEART without a CARDIOPULMONARY BYPASS (diverting the flow of blood from the heart and lungs through an oxygenator).
Impaired venous blood flow or venous return (venous stasis), usually caused by inadequate venous valves. Venous insufficiency often occurs in the legs, and is associated with EDEMA and sometimes with VENOUS STASIS ULCERS at the ankle.
