The investigators will investigate patients undergoing coronary angiography with normal coronary but slow blood flow that was normalized after adenosine injection into the coronary artery. The investigators believe that they have small vessel coronary disease which is the initial presentation of coronary disease prior to anatomical narrowing. To alleviate this phenomenon the investigators intend to examine the long-term clinical response of these patients to treatment with dipyridamole, a well-known medication with almost no side-effects that increases the level of adenosine in the tissue.

The primary objective of this study is to assess whether adding modified-release dipyridamole to aspirin (Asasantin Retard) has measurable effects on markers of platelet function (for exam...
Comparison of pharmacokinetics of dipyridamole administered as Aggrenox versus dipyridamole administered as the immediate release formulation plus aspirin, under conditions of reduced sto...
To determine the effectiveness of dipyridamole and aspirin in prevention of restenosis of the dilated lesion in patients who had undergone percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (P...
This research study will evaluate the effects of aspirin and dipyridamole alone and in combination on the blood flow in the vessels of the legs. We will examine how these medications are ...
The objective of ESPRIT was to compare the efficacy and safety of mild anticoagulation or a combination treatment of aspirin and dipyridamole with the efficacy and safety of treatment with...
To investigate the diagnostic performance of coronary CT angiography derived from dynamic CT myocardial perfusion imaging (CCTA) by third-generation dual-source CT with reference to invasive coronary ...
The accuracy of coronary computed tomography (CT) angiography depends upon the degree of coronary enhancement as compared to the background noise. Unfortunately, coronary contrast-to-noise ratio (CNR)...
Coronary computed tomography angiography (CTA) has emerged as a non-invasive diagnostic method for patients with suspected coronary artery disease, but its usefulness in patients with complex coronary...
The aim of this study was to determine the long-term prognostic power of coronary computed tomography angiography (CTA) to predict cardiac death and nonfatal myocardial infarction.
Dual antiplatelet therapy, consisting of aspirin and a P2Y12 receptor antagonist, has been the cornerstone of management in those undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention, reducing stent thrombos...
A drug combination of aspirin and dipyridamole that functions as a PLATELET AGGREGATION INHIBITOR, used to prevent THROMBOSIS and STROKE in TRANSIENT ISCHEMIC ATTACK patients.
A phosphodiesterase inhibitor that blocks uptake and metabolism of adenosine by erythrocytes and vascular endothelial cells. Dipyridamole also potentiates the antiaggregating action of prostacyclin. (From AMA Drug Evaluations Annual, 1994, p752)
Radiography of the vascular system of the heart muscle after injection of a contrast medium.
A non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agent that is less effective than equal doses of ASPIRIN in relieving pain and reducing fever. However, individuals who are hypersensitive to ASPIRIN may tolerate sodium salicylate. In general, this salicylate produces the same adverse reactions as ASPIRIN, but there is less occult gastrointestinal bleeding. (From AMA Drug Evaluations Annual, 1992, p120)
Asthmatic adverse reaction (e.g., BRONCHOCONSTRICTION) to conventional NSAIDS including aspirin use.
Radiology is the branch of medicine that studies imaging of the body; X-ray (basic, angiography, barium swallows), ultrasound, MRI, CT and PET. These imaging techniques can be used to diagnose, but also to treat a range of conditions, by allowing visuali...
