Clinical Application of MDCT in Coronary Artery Disease

Computed tomography is evolving as a tool for noninvasive diagnosis of coronary artery disease. Coronary calcium deposition amount is an established independent coronary artery disease risk factor. However, coronary artery stenosis seldom occurred in the same location as calcium deposition. With the advent of 16-detector-row multislice spiral CT, direct visualization ...


The Gene Expression Patterns in the Peripheral White Blood Cells of Type 2 Diabetic Patients

Cardiovascular events are the leading cause of death in developed countries worldwide, including Taiwan. Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), previously considered merely as one of the risk factors, has been recently unanimously accepted to be coronary artery disease-equivalent. How T2DM may lead to accelerated atherosclerosis remains obscure. Hyperglycemia with or ...

The Study of Human Atherosclerosis by Polarization-Sensitive Optical Coherence Tomography

Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is a promising new class of diagnostic medical imaging technology that utilizes advanced photonics and fiber optics to obtain images and tissue characterization on a scale never before possible within the human body. OCT combines the principles of ultrasound with the imaging performance of a microscope ...

TDI Preejection Velocities and Myocardial Viability

The objective of the project is to study clinical and prognostic value of new echocardiographic technique, so called positive preejection velocity (+VIC), in patients with chronic ischemic left ventricular (LV) dysfunction indicated for revascularization. Pilot studies has shown high accuracy of pulsed Tissue Doppler imaging (TDI)-derived resting pattern of +VIC ...

Determinants of Cardiac Risk Factor Modification in Latinos With Coronary Artery Disease

Specific aims: Among 213 Latino adult patients who have had coronary artery angioplasty within the past month, the specific aims of the proposed study are: 1. To determine whether patients who have more depressive symptoms at the time of angioplasty are less likely to be active in physical activity at ...

Phase N/A

Risk Factors of Individuals With Coronary Artery Disease

This study is designed to investigate the epidemiologic, genetic, laboratory and clinical characterization of individuals with coronary artery disease. The study group will consist of consecutive patients who are undergoing coronary angiography for suspected coronary artery disease. The diagnosis of coronary artery disease will be confirmed by coronary angiography performed ...

Phase N/A

Varying Characteristics of Atherogenesis and Cardiopulmonary Bypass Inflammatory Response

BACKGROUND: Over the last decade there has been a tremendous growth in our understanding of genetic influences upon atherogenesis, coagulation, and fibrinolysis. Atherosclerosis plays a major role in the pathophysiology of coronary, cerebral, and peripheral vascular disease. Interventions directed towards the prevention of ASCVD have focused on the use of ...
