The aim is to examine the expression of αvβ3 integrin using a novel selective radiotracer in patients with chronich ischemic heart disease and investigate if it is a suitable tool for pr...
This study is to assess whether a lifestyle intervention with diet, exercise and counselling in young patients will have a positive influence on their weight and overall well-being. This s...
The purpose of this study is to design and evaluate targeted implementation strategies to fully integrate the VHA clinical practice guidelines for ischemic heart disease into VHA clinical ...
In this pilot study, the investigators will assess the clinical utility and feasibility of the Healthy Heart Score in the primary clinical care setting for the primordial prevention of car...
Interventions to improve health behaviour in patients with resent acute stroke are not well established. This study will evaluate the feasibility and effect of an early initiated counselli...
It is hard to conceive of a better rationale for healthcare interoperability than the management of chronic disease. People in advanced, industrialized countries are living longer, and chronic disease...
Healthy lifestyle modifications, including weight management, regular physical activity, prudent diet, and stress relief, have been identified as key components of tertiary cancer prevention. In this ...
Although percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) and coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) are both commonly employed in the treatment of stable ischemic heart disease (SIHD), their ability to reduc...
To examine the effectiveness of a self-management intervention compared with usual care in adults with chronic kidney disease on self-management, knowledge, self-efficacy, health-related quality of li...
Introduction: The part of patients with comorbide pathology, which includes ischemic heart disease (IHD) and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), increases among patients aged 40 and older. C...
A vasodilator used in angina of effort or ischemic heart disease.
Usual level of physical activity that is less than 30 minutes of moderate-intensity activity on most days of the week.
Hypertrophy and dilation of the RIGHT VENTRICLE of the heart that is caused by PULMONARY HYPERTENSION. This condition is often associated with pulmonary parenchymal or vascular diseases, such as CHRONIC OBSTRUCTIVE PULMONARY DISEASE and PULMONARY EMBOLISM.
Ischemic injury to the OPTIC NERVE which usually affects the OPTIC DISK (optic neuropathy, anterior ischemic) and less frequently the retrobulbar portion of the nerve (optic neuropathy, posterior ischemic). The injury results from occlusion of arterial blood supply which may result from TEMPORAL ARTERITIS; ATHEROSCLEROSIS; COLLAGEN DISEASES; EMBOLISM; DIABETES MELLITUS; and other conditions. The disease primarily occurs in the sixth decade or later and presents with the sudden onset of painless and usually severe monocular visual loss. Anterior ischemic optic neuropathy also features optic disk edema with microhemorrhages. The optic disk appears normal in posterior ischemic optic neuropathy.

The application of repeated, brief periods of vascular occlusion at the onset of REPERFUSION to reduce REPERFUSION INJURY that follows a prolonged ischemic event. The techniques are similar to ISCHEMIC PRECONDITIONING but the time of application is after the ischemic event instead of before.
