Study of Peripheral Arterial Calcification

2019-10-04 08:31:43 | BioPortfolio


Aim of the work :

1. Using different calcification scoring systems to investigate the association between arterial calcification and clinical outcome following endovascular therapy


Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is a worldwide health problem and its prevalence is increasing among aging population. Symptomatic PAD Is a major cause of major amputation with reduction of the functional capacity and quality of life . Arterial calcification is calcium crystallization deposits in the extracellular matrix of the intima and media . Medial calcification is usually associated with chronic kidney disease and diabetes mellitus, while intimal calcification comes usually as a part of atherosclerotic process . The relationship between calcification and PAD is well established . Arterial calcification is associated with increased risk of procedural failure and major amputation . Many calcium scoring systems have been proposed, including peripheral arterial calcium scoring scale (PACSS which highlights the pathologic location of calcification along with the length of the segment affected. The peripheral academic research consortium (PARC) suggested another calcium scoring scale that classified calcification into 4 major grades . The DEFENETIVE Ca++ have proposed another calcium severity scoring . Intravascular Ultrasound (IVUS) is highly sensitive to presence and location of atherosclerotic calcium .

The impact of intimal and medial vascular calcification on the safety and effectiveness of endovascular devices to treat symptomatic peripheral arterial disease (PAD) remains poorly defined warranting continued research to elaborate relationship between calcification and endovascular outcome.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Endovascular procedure in which atheromatous plaque is excised by a cutting or rotating catheter. It differs from balloon and laser angioplasty procedures which enlarge vessels by dilation but frequently do not remove much plaque. If the plaque is removed by surgical excision under general anesthesia rather than by an endovascular procedure through a catheter, it is called ENDARTERECTOMY.

Preliminary cancer therapy (chemotherapy, radiation therapy, hormone/endocrine therapy, immunotherapy, hyperthermia, etc.) that precedes a necessary second modality of treatment.

A therapeutic approach, involving chemotherapy, radiation therapy, or surgery, after initial regimens have failed to lead to improvement in a patient's condition. Salvage therapy is most often used for neoplastic diseases.

Products used to seal the openings in BLOOD VESSELS from incisions or punctures made during ENDOVASCULAR PROCEDURES.

Drug therapy given to augment or stimulate some other form of treatment such as surgery or radiation therapy. Adjuvant chemotherapy is commonly used in the therapy of cancer and can be administered before or after the primary treatment.
