The purpose of this study is to determine the diagnostic accuracy of MPICT for the detection of hemodynamically relevant coronary stenosis (as determined by invasive FFR) in patients with ...
Cardiovascular diseases are importante cause of death, and of these have highlighted the Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) and its various clinical manifestations. The chest pain suggestive of...
The objective of the INCORPORATE trial is to evaluate whether an intentional invasive strategy with ischemia targeted, reasonably complete coronary revascularization and optimal medical th...
The purpose of project is to answer fundamental questions about the mechanisms underlying mental stress ischemia in patients with coronary artery disease, mood disorders, or both, and to i...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether treatment with 40mg of Rosuvastatin for 8 weeks will reduce the number of episodes of myocardial ischaemia suffered in subjects with coron...
In patients with end-stage renal disease requiring hemodialysis (HD patients), myocardial ischemia after coronary artery disease is a major cause of mortality. Coronary pathophysiology, namely myocard...
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 ...
A fragmented QRS complex (fQRS) is caused by conduction abnormalities of the ventricle secondary to myocardial ischemia and/or scar in patients with myocardial infarction. However, the implications of...
Rational and design of the INtentional COronary revascularization versus conservative therapy in patients undergOing successful peripheRAl arTEry revascularization due to critical limb ischemia trial (INCORPORATE trial).
Critical limb ischemia is associated with excessively high risk for cardiovascular events, including myocardial infarction and death. Additionally, in this patient population non-invasive evaluation o...
Coronary angiography has been the principle modality for assessing the severity of atherosclerotic coronary artery disease for several decades. However, there is a complex relationship between angiogr...
A malformation that is characterized by a muscle bridge over a segment of the CORONARY ARTERIES. Systolic contractions of the muscle bridge can lead to narrowing of coronary artery; coronary compression; MYOCARDIAL ISCHEMIA; MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION; and SUDDEN CARDIAC DEATH.
An imbalance between myocardial functional requirements and the capacity of the CORONARY VESSELS to supply sufficient blood flow. It is a form of MYOCARDIAL ISCHEMIA (insufficient blood supply to the heart muscle) caused by a decreased capacity of the coronary vessels.
A disorder of cardiac function caused by insufficient blood flow to the muscle tissue of the heart. The decreased blood flow may be due to narrowing of the coronary arteries (CORONARY ARTERY DISEASE), to obstruction by a thrombus (CORONARY THROMBOSIS), or less commonly, to diffuse narrowing of arterioles and other small vessels within the heart. Severe interruption of the blood supply to the myocardial tissue may result in necrosis of cardiac muscle (MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION).
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.
