The present prospective, multicenter study will therefore be performed with the primary objective of establishing the correlation between fractional flow reserve (FFR) and intravascular ultrasound with virtual histology (VH-IVUS)-derived parameters in angiographically intermediate coronary lesions. The current study will also examine the relative prognostic utility of FFR and VH-IVUS as a tool to defer percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), by assessing the long-term rate (up to 3 years) of lesion-related clinical events if deferred by FFR vs. VH-IVUS versus not deferred PCI.

Natural course of intermediate coronary artery disease (CAD) is very important to predict the prognosis of the patient with such disease. Several studies have well demonstrated the benefi...
The study will assess the change in coronary atherosclerotic disease as determined by intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) for aliskiren compared to placebo when given in addition to standard t...
The purpose of this study is to compare different methods of looking at atherosclerotic plaques in heart arteries. Identifying the characteristics of these plaques noninvasively would be ...
The aim of this study is to assess clinical safety and efficacy of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) using a newer generation drug-eluting stent (DES) in the context of optical freq...
Both intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) and optical coherence tomography (OCT) are standardly used and have been extensively studied separately to guide percutaneous coronary intervention and...
There has been great effort to improve clinical outcome in percutaneous treatment for coronary artery disease. Complementary to coronary angiography, intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) provides in vivo t...
To assess sex-specific differences regarding use of conventional risks and coronary artery calcification (CAC) to detect coronary artery disease (CAD) using coronary CT angiography (CCTA).
A 46-year-old man underwent coronary angiography for stable angina. He developed inferior ST-segment myocardial infarction during the angiography. Intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) findings suggested co...
Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the major cause of mortality worldwide. Coronary artery disease (CAD) contributes to half of mortalities caused by CVD. The mainstay of management of CAD is medical the...
Coronary revascularization for coronary artery disease dates to the introduction of coronary bypass surgery by Favaloro in 1967 and coronary angioplasty by Gruentzig in 1977 and first published in 196...
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.
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.
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.
Pathological processes of CORONARY ARTERIES that may derive from a congenital abnormality, atherosclerotic, or non-atherosclerotic cause.
Radiology is the branch of medicine that studies imaging of the body; X-ray (basic, angiography, barium swallows), ultrasound, MRI, CT and PET. These imaging techniques can be used to diagnose, but also to treat a range of conditions, by allowing visuali...
