Coronary Artery Plaque Burden in Stable Angina and Non-obstructive Coronary Artery Disease

2019-07-11 09:17:47 | BioPortfolio


Non-obstructive coronary artery disease (CAD), particularly common in women, has been associated with impaired quality of life and risk of recurrent hospitalizations. Several studies have also demonstrated increased risk of incident acute coronary events and mortality.

The main objective of the project is to assess the association between coronary artery plaque features by coronary CT angiography and long term prognosis in a large unselected population undergoing CT coronary angiography due to stable angina and suspected myocardial ischemia from the Norwegian Registry for Invasive Cardiology (NORIC) diagnosed with non-obstructive CAD by coronary CT angiography.


Patients with stable angina and non-obstructive coronary artery disease by CT coronary angiography will be selected from the Norwegian Registry of Invasive Cardiology (NORIC). This is a national quality control registry run and controlled by the Norwegian Institute of Public Health ( All CT coronary angiograms will be reanalyzed using advanced post-processing analysis software to assess coronary artery plaque burden, distribution and composition. Through linking with the Norwegian Cardiovascular Disease Registry and the Cause of Death Registry ( we will be able to assess the association between long-term prognosis (5 years) and coronary artery plaque features.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

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.
