"Normal Coronary Artery" With Slow Flow Improved by Adenosine Injection, Dipyridamole Treatment and Clinical Follow-up

2014-08-27 03:19:57 | BioPortfolio

Summary

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.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.
