The simple knowledge that practices healthy lifestyle are important to reduce or prevent the progression of cardiovascular diseases it is not enough for effective changes accordingly. To nutritional education be successful, needs to promote changes in eating habits and not just transmit information. This is a behavioral intervention study in 200 consecutive patients submitted to percutaneous transluminary coronary angioplasty. The participants were randomized in two groups: intervention and control.
The intervention was a dialogic nutritional counseling and the control arm was a traditional nutritional counseling.
All participants will undergo long-term follow-up for cardiovascular events.
Patients were hospitalized to realize elective coronary angioplasty in a especialized hospital in cardiovascular disease.
All data were obtained by a trained nutritionist.

To compare the efficacy of coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery with percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) in patients with multiple vessel coronary heart disease.
The intention of this trial is to assess the safety and efficacy of Drug Eluting Balloon (DEB) application (SeQuent Please) to the side branch in percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) o...
To assess the relative long-term safety and efficacy of percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) and coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery in patients with multivessel d...
Aim of the study is to evaluate the benefits from adjunctive intracoronary administration of adenosin in elective patients undergoing coronary angioplasty.
The purpose of this study is to compare the effectiveness and safety of intracoronary stenting with or without abciximab, an anti-platelet therapy, and conventional coronary angioplasty wi...
Paclitaxel-coated balloon (PCB) coronary angioplasty is an alternative treatment for de-novo coronary lesions in small vessels. This study with the new Essential PCB aimed to evaluate early and mid-te...
In the early days of coronary angiography, the precise quantification of luminal narrowing was challenging. The introduction of balloon angioplasty (percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty [PTC...
Barriers to successful left ventricular lead placement within the coronary venous anatomy may include focal stenoses, thromboses, phrenic nerve stimulation, vessel tortuosity, small vessel caliber, no...
Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for patients with in-stent restenosis (ISR) is generally considered safe and effective. However, due to increased tissue hardness, PCI for calcified intra-sten...
Despite an incidence of about 18-52% of the patients undergoing coronary angiography, chronic total occlusions (CTO) are rarely revascularised by percutaneous angioplasty (PCI). Nevertheless, current ...
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.
Use of a balloon catheter for dilatation of an occluded artery. It is used in treatment of arterial occlusive diseases, including renal artery stenosis and arterial occlusions in the leg. For the specific technique of balloon dilatation in coronary arteries, ANGIOPLASTY, TRANSLUMINAL, PERCUTANEOUS CORONARY is available.
Dilatation of an occluded coronary artery (or arteries) by means of a balloon catheter to restore myocardial blood supply.
Dilation of an occluded coronary artery (or arteries) by means of a balloon catheter to restore myocardial blood supply.
A technique utilizing a laser coupled to a catheter which is used in the dilatation of occluded blood vessels. This includes laser thermal angioplasty where the laser energy heats up a metal tip, and direct laser angioplasty where the laser energy directly ablates the occlusion. One form of the latter approach uses an EXCIMER LASER which creates microscopically precise cuts without thermal injury. When laser angioplasty is performed in combination with balloon angioplasty it is called laser-assisted balloon angioplasty (ANGIOPLASTY, BALLOON, LASER-ASSISTED).
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
