The Massachusetts General Hospital Optical Coherence Tomography Registry

2014-08-27 03:14:11 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Information will be collected prospectively in about 3,000 patients having Optical Coherence Tomography during cardiac catheterization. Subjects will be initially enrolled at sites outside of the United States, where Optical Coherence Tomography is approved by regulatory agencies. Subjects will be followed for up to 5 years.

Description

This project will create a prospective registry of 3,000 patients with follow-ups of up to 5 years.

The aims of the project will be:

1. identify plaque characteristics on OCT that are associated with adverse cardiac events including myocardial infarction

2. to identify characteristics of stented arteries that are associated with adverse events including restenosis and stent thrombosis

Because detailed clinical, angiographic and intravascular imaging data will be gathered from a large number of patients with clinical follow-ups, we anticipate that the registry will be a tremendous resource for additional research questions going forward.

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.
