A New Classification and Interventional Therapy for Coronary Artery Ectasia

2020-02-16 17:40:48 | BioPortfolio


This study is aim to present a new classification for coronary artery ectasia and find the best interventional therapy for different types of patients were treated and studied.


Coronary artery ectasia refers to a variety of reasons cause coronary artery expansion, its diameter is more than 1.5 times that of the adjacent normal coronary artery. Clinical symptoms include angina, myocardial infarction and sudden death.At present, there is no consensus on the mechanism and treatment of the disease, which may be related to the structural failure of the vessel wall and abnormal hemodynamics in the dilated segment.Most of the existing studies are case reports or single-center retrospective analysis of small samples, with low level of evidence.As a common fluid analysis method in the field of engineering, computational fluid dynamics can effectively simulate the movement and stress state of blood under reasonable model assumptions.By comparing the preoperative and postoperative data of real cases, the validity of simulation analysis results can be tested.The purpose of this study is to carry out a multi-center study combining morphological and hemodynamic factors, to propose a new classification and interventional treatment strategy for atherosclerotic coronary artery ectasia, and to provide evidence-based medical evidence for the development of treatment guidelines.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

RNA consisting of two strands as opposed to the more prevalent single-stranded RNA. Most of the double-stranded segments are formed from transcription of DNA by intramolecular base-pairing of inverted complementary sequences separated by a single-stranded loop. Some double-stranded segments of RNA are normal in all organisms.

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.

Enzymes that catalyze the endonucleolytic cleavage of single-stranded regions of DNA or RNA molecules while leaving the double-stranded regions intact. They are particularly useful in the laboratory for producing "blunt-ended" DNA molecules from DNA with single-stranded ends and for sensitive GENETIC TECHNIQUES such as NUCLEASE PROTECTION ASSAYS that involve the detection of single-stranded DNA and RNA.

An APOBEC deaminase that functions as an inhibitor of RETROVIRIDAE replication and inhibits the mobility of RETROTRANSPOSONS via deaminase-dependent and independent mechanisms. It is selective for SINGLE-STRANDED DNA and does not deaminate double-stranded DNA or single or DOUBLE-STRANDED RNA. It exhibits potent antiviral activity against VIF PROTEIN deficient HIV-1 through the creation of hypermutations in the VIRAL DNA. It also has anti-viral activity against SIMIAN IMMUNODEFICIENCY VIRUSES and HEPATITIS B VIRUS.

A collective term for a group of around nine geometric and positional isomers of LINOLEIC ACID in which the trans/cis double bonds are conjugated, where double bonds alternate with single bonds.
