Same Lipid Lowering on Coronary Plaque Regression

2014-08-27 03:15:16 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Atherosclerosis is a progressive disease. Lipid lowering therapy was the standard treatment for patients with coronary artery disease. Studies indicated that coronary artery plaque progression had positive relationship with the plasma cholesterol level, and could be halted or reversed by intensive statin therapy (such as 20-40 mg/d atorvastatin). Ezetimibe plus statin could further lowered blood cholesterol level. Here the investigators hypothesize that same cholesterol lowering level by routing dose of atorvastatin or lower dose of atorvastatin plus ezetimibe could achieve the same effect on coronary artery plaque cessation or regression.

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.
