A large number of patients with symptomatic ischaemic heart disease undergo coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) to alleviate their symptoms and improve prognosis. Given the progressive ...
Computed tomographic coronary angiography (CTCA) has been recently introduced to non-invasively evaluate coronary artery pathology. Histology and intravascular ultrasound imaging studies h...
The overall goal of this study is to determine if non-invasive imaging with state of the art CT coronary angiography can be used to screen for coronary artery disease in high risk patients...
The investigators' rationale was to evaluate whether a 64-slice CT scanner allows accurate measurement of computed tomographic changes in coronary artery flow profiles and whether CT flow ...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the potential benefit of systematic preoperative coronary angiography followed by selective coronary artery revascularization on the incidence of m...
Rapid progress has been made in research of cadmium-zinc-telluride (CZT) technology in the last few years, which might serve as a new method to diagnose coronary artery disease. However, compared with...
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...
Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death worldwide and describes many heart and vessel disorders. One of these disorders, coronary artery disease (CAD), occurs because of narrowed or block...
The American College of Cardiology Foundation (ACCF) with other professional societies developed appropriate use criteria (AUC) for diagnostic coronary angiography. This study aims to examine the appr...
Patients with episodes of angina are likely to experience future cardiac events and benefit from a revascularization procedure. Conventional invasive coronary angiography is a well-established and rel...
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.
Abnormal balloon- or sac-like dilatation in the wall of CORONARY VESSELS. Most coronary aneurysms are due to CORONARY ATHEROSCLEROSIS, and the rest are due to inflammatory diseases, such as KAWASAKI DISEASE.
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.
