Identifying Vulnerable Plaques in Blood Vessels of the Heart Using a New Imaging Technique

Atherosclerosis is a condition in which deposits of fat, cholesterol, and other substances build up along the inner walls of arteries; these deposits are known as plaque. As plaque builds up, it increases the risk of heart attack. Previous autopsy studies have shown that vulnerable plaques, a type of atherosclerotic ...

Surgical Manipulation of the Aorta and Cerebral Infarction

Stroke is one of the most devastating complications following coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) with an overall incidence ranging from 2.0 % to 3.2 %. The presumed etiology for the majority of strokes after CABG is atheroembolism from the diseased aorta ascendens caused by surgical manipulation. Off-pump coronary artery bypass ...

Prevention of Contrast Nephropathy During Diagnostic Coronary Angiogram or PCI With Hydratation Based on LEVDP

The goal is to determine if prehydration based on LEVDP is superior to a standard hydratation, independant of volemic status, with NaCl 0.9% or NaHCO3 for the prevention of contrast nephropathy related to a diagnostic coronary angiogram or to PCI.

Molecular Determinants of Coronaruy Artery Disease

The purpose of this study is to discover genes that may cause Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) or Arteriovenous Malformation (AVM). Many human diseases are inherited or passed from parent to child in families. These diseases occur because of damage to a gene(s), the genetic material that is also called DNA. ...

European Multicenter Randomized Comparative Efficacy/Safety Study of the Mar-Tyn TiN-Coated Stent

Occlusive coronary artery disease is predominantly caused by coronary atherosclerosis, a pathologic vascular condition characterized by abnormal lipid and fibrous tissue accumulation in the vessel wall. This condition may be accompanied by degenerative changes and/or calcification leading to stenosis (narrowing) of the luminal channel. Percutaneous Transluminal Coronary Angioplasty (PTCA) is ...

Effect of Short Term Atorvastatin Treatment 80mg/Day on Early Regression of Carotid Artery Atherosclerotic Lesions

Candidates for bilateral carotid endarterectomy (CEA) who meet study criteria will provide informed consent before their randomization. Before the first CEA, the patient will have MRI, US, and EBCT exams of both carotids. The most occlusive plaque will be resected at the first CEA. The patient will then receive atorvastatin ...

Clinical Feature and Outcome of Angiographic Coronary Artery Disease in Chronic Kidney Disease Patients

All patients who underwent cardiac catheterization for assessment of CAD at Keelung Chang Gung Memorial Hospital between 1992 and 2004 with continuous serum creatinine values measured before admission were included in this analysis. Data were obtained from medical records of the database center of our institution. Demographic and clinical data ...
