This is a multi-center, prospective registry of patients with intermediate coronary lesions defined as a stenosis of 40-80% by angiography. Approximately 300 patients will be enrolled into the study at sites in the United States and Europe. There will be no follow up beyond hospital discharge in this study. A sub-group of 30 patients will undergo Adenosine MRI. The investigators hypothesize that Intravascular Ultrasound Radiofrequency (IVUS RF) anatomical criteria, such as minimal luminal area, plaque burden and virtual histology plaque type, can predict physiological ischemia by Fractional Flow Reserve (FFR).
Patients undergoing cardiac catheterization must meet clinical inclusion and exclusion criteria and sign an informed consent. At the time of catheterization the patients will be further analyzed for eligibility using angiographic inclusion and exclusion criteria. Patients who fulfilled the clinical and angiographic criteria will undergo further imaging evaluation using an IVUS RF catheter (Volcano Therapeutics) and FFR wire (Radi or Volcano). The decision for treatment of any lesion will be at the operator's discretion. For patients enrolled at Washington Hospital Center and do not undergo percutaneous coronary intervention, an assessment with non invasive perfusion adenosine MRI also be performed.

The present prospective, multicenter study will therefore be performed with the primary objective of establishing the correlation between fractional flow reserve (FFR) and intravascular ul...
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...
The primary objective of this study is to determine the diagnostic efficiency and accuracy of using the StentOptimizer. The ability of StentOptimizer to influence post deployment treatment...
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...
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...
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...
Stenting coronary artery bifurcation lesion is associated with suboptimal clinical results. Clinical improvement by intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) guided bifurcation stenting is controversial because...
The precise sizing of the stent graft in thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) affects aortic remodeling and hence, further outcome. Covering the proximal entry tear is essential for successful ...
Intravascular Ultrasound (IVUS) is an intra-operative imaging modality that facilitates observing and appraising the vessel wall structure of the human coronary arteries. Segmentation of arterial wall...
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...
