The purpose of this study is to investigate the effect of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) on cardiac function in multi-vessel disease patients with concurrent chronic total occlus...
The is an observational, prospective study to evaluate the effect of the DyeVert System on contrast volume administration in patients undergoing clinically-indicated chronic total occlusio...
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 m...
Chronic total occlusions (CTO) are encountered in almost one-fourth of patients undergoing coronary angiography. The presence of an untreated CTO has been related to adverse clinical progn...
Under the circumstances that appropriate first-choice guidewires for percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for chronic total occlusion (CTO) have yet to be established, the objective of...
Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for coronary artery chronic total occlusion (CTO) is an important treatment to be used in conjunction with non-CTO PCI, coronary artery bypass grafting, and op...
A 67-year-old man with coronary artery disease and previous coronary underwent successful Guideliner reverse CART percutaneous coronary intervention of a chronic total occlusion of the right coronary ...
Diabetes mellitus (DM) is a major predictor of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. However, there are limited data on the impact of DM in patients who have chronic total occlusion (CTO) lesion on ...
In-hospital outcomes of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) with cardiogenic shock (CS) were still not satisfactory even in the primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) era. The aim of this stud...
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.
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.
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 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.
Complete blockage of blood flow through one of the CORONARY ARTERIES, usually from CORONARY ATHEROSCLEROSIS.
