Vascular Evaluation for Revascularization: Defining the Indications for Coronary Therapy: A Pilot Study

2014-08-27 03:12:23 | BioPortfolio

Summary

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.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.
