The purpose of the study is to assess short and long term outcomes of acute coronary syndrome in patients with non obstructive coronary atherosclerosis, to optimize the algorithm for diagn...
Patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) before kidney transplantation require that obstructive coronary artery disease (CAD) is excluded, as cardiovascular complications are the leading...
This study proposes to develop an MRI technique named Coronary Atherosclerosis T1-weighed Characterization (CATCH) that will improve the quality and reliability of coronary atherosclerosis...
Objectives: Prediabetes may condition an early endothelium dysfunction, and the development of non obstructive coronary stenosis (NOCS). Indeed, authors' study aim was to investigate the e...
In this study, we, the investigators at National Taiwan University Hospital, will evaluate the efficacy of pharmacological therapy targeted to reduce insulin resistance (pioglitazone) on t...
It is unclear whether mental stress-induced myocardial ischemia (MSIMI) is related to obstructive coronary artery disease (CAD). We examined this question and contrasted results with ischemia induced ...
Risk of obstructive coronary artery disease and major adverse cardiac events in patients with noncoronary atherosclerosis: Insights from the Veterans Affairs Clinical Assessment, Reporting, and Tracking (CART) Program.
We sought to determine the risk of obstructive coronary artery disease (oCAD) associated with noncoronary atherosclerosis (cerebrovascular disease [CVD] or peripheral arterial disease [PAD]) and major...
Atherosclerosis is the first etiology of coronary artery aneurysm (CAA). It is, however, challenging to inhibit the development of CAA. The aim of the study is to carry out morphometric and hemodynami...
Usefulness of baseline statin therapy in non-obstructive coronary artery disease by coronary computed tomographic angiography: From the CONFIRM (COronary CT Angiography EvaluatioN For Clinical Outcomes: An InteRnational Multicenter) study.
The extent to which the presence and extent of subclinical atherosclerosis by coronary computed tomography angiography influences a potential mortality benefit of statin is unknown. We evaluated the r...
Interleukin-10 (IL-10) is an anti-inflammatory cytokine that may be protective against coronary atherosclerosis. In an observational study of people with HIV (PWH) and uninfected controls, IL-10 was m...
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.
Complete blockage of blood flow through one of the CORONARY ARTERIES, usually from CORONARY ATHEROSCLEROSIS.
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 test to determine the lowest sound intensity level at which fifty percent or more of the spondaic test words (words of two syllables having equal stress) are repeated correctly.
A condition of low alertness or cognitive impairment, usually associated with prolonged mental activities or stress.
