Coronary artery disease (CAD) remains the leading cause of death in the elderly. Silent myocardial ischemia (SI) is a manifestation of CAD in which there is a transient alteration in myocardial perfusion, function, and/or electrical activity not accompanied by chest pain. Mental and emotional stress, in particular hostility and anger are potent inducers of SI, Individuals with SI are at a 3-5 fold higher risk for the development of angina, myocardial infarction and death than s...
Depression is commonly seen in patients with cardiovascular disorders. In recent studies it has been shown that mild to moderate depression symptoms were associated with increased likelihood of mental stress-induced myocardial ischemia (MSIMI), which is a risk factor of poor cardiac outcome. In this project, the investigators aim to assess the treatment of mental stress-induced myocardial ischemia in ischemic heart disease patients with mild to moderate depressive symptoms. T...
Mental stress-induced myocardial ischemia(MSIMI) has been recognized a significant clinical problem. Evidence has shown that individuals with MSIMI have 2 to 2.5 times higher risk to develop a major averse cardiovascular events over 3-5 years, compared to their counterparts who have no MSIMI. Nevertheless, investigations into the study of MSIMI among women who have chest pain but artery stenosis < 50% have been lacking. In this project, the investigators used positron emission ...
The purpose of project is to answer fundamental questions about the mechanisms underlying mental stress ischemia in patients with coronary artery disease, mood disorders, or both, and to identify potential biomarkers and psychosocial risk factors associated with this condition.

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the blood flow to the heart during stress and assess changes in blood flow after psychological treatment in participants with coronary artery disease. The aims of the study are to assess the effects of heart rate variability (HRV) biofeedback (versus usual care) on global and regional myocardial blood flow (MBF), peripheral vascular function, and autonomic changes during mental stress.
The goal of this study is to evaluate the ability of MDCT under stress to assess myocardial ischemia. There is some preliminary data in the literature showing the ability of MDCT under stress to bring relevant information about myocardial ischemia. Stress MDCT will have several advantages over single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) imaging namely: shorter acquisition time, lower irradiation dose, lower cost. The feasibility of such experiment is still debated and ne...
This study aims to investigate the relationship between the concentrations of blood orphanin, norepinephrine and the morbidity of painless myocardial ischemia in patients with diabetes mellitus. Hopefully, the biomarker(s) in the blood of diabetic patients can be found for screening high risk patients in the diabetes sufferers to prevent the painless myocardial ischemia.
Silent ischemia has been shown to negatively affect prognosis in patients after myocardial infarction. However, long-term outcome data in totally asymptomatic patients is missing and it is unknown whether angioplasty in addition to secondary preventive measures is superior to antiischemic drug therapy in these patients. Therefore, the SWISSI 2 study was started 15 years ago with the aim of comparing the effects of angioplasty with medical therapy on long-term outcome in patient...
Cardiovascular diseases (CVD) are responsible, throughout the world, for high mortality rates and cardiovascular morbidity. Endothelial dysfunction is the earliest marker of clinical atherosclerosis development. Human studies show that endothelial and microvascular dysfunction are independent predictors of ischemic cardiovascular events and long-term prognosis. The study´s objective is to evaluate the endothelial and peripheral microcirculation changes by venous occlusion plet...
The purpose of the study is to verify the ability of the HyperQ signal to detect Dobutamine induced Ischemia. The gold standard for ischemia will be the results of Angiography if performed, or Echocardiographic imaging, which was performed during the test.
The principal objective of the study is to evaluate the effectiveness of a widely used complementary medicine intervention, mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR), in which mindfulness meditation and yoga are the principal components in the treatment of a chronic, often fatal illness that affects tens of millions of Americans. The investigators propose to conduct a single center randomized controlled trial in which 150 patients will be assigned to either a mindfulness medita...
Cardiovascular diseases are importante cause of death, and of these have highlighted the Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) and its various clinical manifestations. The chest pain suggestive of ischemic heart disease is frequent complaint in medical consultations and hospitalizations . Complementary tests and images exams for risk stratification as Cardiac Stress Test (ET), the Myocardial Perfusion scintigraphy of (SPECT) are established for risk stratification and assessment workup...
The purpose of this investigation is to compare subjects at high risk for silent myocardial ischemia in the placebo group to subjects at high risk for silent myocardial ischemia in the ranolazine group to determine if ranolazine can be used as a treatment to decrease silent myocardial ischemia (SMI). Subjects at high risk for silent myocardial ischemia are defined in this protocol as diabetics with stable ischemic heart disease. This study will look at the impact ranolazine tre...
Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is a primitive myocardic disease and the first of genetic cardiac diseases. The definition of HCM is an increase of the myocardial thickness of the left ventricle (LV) wall without any other causes of hypertrophy. It's characterized by an important heterogeneity of prognosis and clinical expression going from a asymptomatic state until the devastating sudden death occurring in a young person.The diagnosis of HCM is definite by a myocardial thi...
