The purpose of this study is to use a high-resolution intracoronary imaging modality, called optical coherence tomography (OCT) to examine two different types of coronary artery stents use...
This study aims to demonstrate that the BioFreedom™ Cobalt Chromium Drug Coated Stent is non-inferior to the market authorized BioFreedom™ Stainless Steel Stent with respective to effi...
The purpose of this pharmacokinetic (PK) study is to characterize the maximum concentration (Cmax) and time-to-maximum concentration (Tmax) of Biolimus A9TM and its active metabolites siro...
DES are preferred over BMS for most patients, however prolonged dual antiplatelet therapy is required for patients treated with DES for prevention of late or very late stent thrombosis. wh...
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 an...
Coronary revascularization for coronary artery disease dates to the introduction of coronary bypass surgery by Favaloro in 1967 and coronary angioplasty by Gruentzig in 1977 and first published in 196...
Comparative outcomes of coronary-artery bypass grafting (CABG) and percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for left main coronary artery (LMCA) disease were previously reported. However, data on very...
A wider angle between the left anterior descending coronary artery (LAD) and left circumflex coronary artery (LCX) has been suggested to induce plaque formation in the arterial system via changes in s...
Coronary computed tomography angiography (CTA) has emerged as a non-invasive diagnostic method for patients with suspected coronary artery disease, but its usefulness in patients with complex coronary...
Gut microbiota dysbiosis has been considered to be an important risk factor that contributes to coronary artery disease, but limited evidence is known about the involvement of gut microbiota in the di...
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.
