Randomized Evaluation of Aggressive or Moderate Lipid Lowering Therapy With Pitavastatin in Coronary Artery Disease (REAL-CAD)

2014-08-27 03:16:53 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the prevention of cardiovascular disease by moderate cholesterol lowering therapy, pitavastatin 1mg/day or aggressive cholesterol lowering therapy, pitavastatin 4mg/day in patients with stable coronary artery disease.

Description

It was already demonstrated by previous clinical trials that statins lower the incidence of death and cardiovascular events in patients with coronary artery disease. However, whether aggressive cholesterol lowering therapy, using high dosage of statins, is more effective than moderate cholesterol lowering therapy for the prevention of cardiovascular events in patients with coronary artery disease has not been studied in Japan.

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.
