The aim of this study is to evaluate if the intracoronary infusion of autologous bone-marrow derived CD133+ endothelial precursor cells is able to promote neovascularization and to improve myocardial perfusion and contractility in patients with refractory coronary heart disease, characterized by poor response to standard coronary interventions, severe impairment of the quality of life, and poor prognosis.
Refractory Coronary Artery Disease is a significant cause of mortality and decreased quality of life. Intracoronary infusion of CD133+ progenitor cells is a viable treatment option for patients with this condition. After clinical and laboratory evaluation, 50-100 ml of bone marrow will be obtained by bone marrow aspiration from the posterior iliac crest under local anesthesia. From this sample, CD133+ endothelial progenitor cells will be isolated, purified and packed within the next 12 hours of extraction, and resuspended in 30 ml saline solution. The patient will undergo coronary catheterization for selection of the target obstructed artery for cell infusion, which will be performed using a balloon catheter under hemodynamic monitoring. Once concluded, the patient will be transferred to intermediate care unit for post-interventional observation for approximately 24 hours before being released. Ambulatory follow-up will be performed at specific intervals to determine efficacy and safety of this intervention by clinical and laboratory examination, including imaging and cardiac function studies.

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).
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...
Lipoprotein(a) [Lp(a)] is an independent risk factor for atherosclerotic vascular disease. However, there are limited data regarding the impact of Lp(a) levels on the incidence and severity of endothe...
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.
A family of percutaneous techniques that are used to manage CORONARY OCCLUSION, including standard balloon angioplasty (PERCUTANEOUS TRANSLUMINAL CORONARY ANGIOPLASTY), the placement of intracoronary STENTS, and atheroablative technologies (e.g., ATHERECTOMY; ENDARTERECTOMY; THROMBECTOMY; PERCUTANEOUS TRANSLUMINAL LASER ANGIOPLASTY). PTCA was the dominant form of PCI, before the widespread use of stenting.
