NSTE-ACS patients are more likely to exhibit high-risk plaque characteristics in non-culprit lesions. Both IVUS and OCT imaging techniques interact in a complementary manner to provide morphological characterization of the atherosclerotic coronary plaques and help identification of high-risk vulnerable plaques. Using morphological parameters obtained from OCT and IVUS, a new plaque vulnerability score will be established for more precise definition of the most vulnerable plaques that carry the greatest risk of rupture and subsequent detrimental clinical outcomes in the future. Such score might help in targeting these plaques with certain therapeutic interventions aiming to their stabilization.
The Hamburg City Health Study (HCHS) is a large, prospective, long-term, population-based cohort study and a unique research platform and network to obtain substantial knowledge about several risk and prognostic factors in major chronic diseases.
Incidence of ST-segment Elevation Myocardial Infarction(STEMI) is rising and the existing emergency medical aid system for STEMI was not enough for timely perfusion treatment. No existing research with high-quality data focuses on the characteristic of STEMI incidence and regional network construction. Aiming of Guangdong GAMI(reGional network for Acute Myocardial Infarction) project is to establish effective collaborative regional network system for STEMI patients treatment.
The ULYSSES study is a single-center, prospective study aimed at evaluation of myocardial ischemia using regadenoson low-dose dynamic computed tomography myocardial perfusion imaging (CTP) in patients diagnosed with intermediate coronary artery stenoses in referrence to the magnetic resonance myocardial perfusion imaging (MR MPI).
The study aims to evaluate the safety and efficacy of biodegradable polymer sirolimus-eluting coronary stent system (HELIOS) in patients with coronary artery disease . The primary endpoint is target lesion failure, a composite endpoint of cardiac death, target vessel related myocardial infarction and clinically-driven target lesion revascularization at 1 year follow-up.
The primary purpose of this multi-center study is to collect and study the acoustic and electrical signals created by the heart during the cardiac cycle as a result of stenosis or plaque associated with coronary artery disease (CAD).
The purpose of this study is to determine which treatment option is better for patients who have isolated coronary artery disease (blockages of one vessel supplying blood to the heart muscle). The treatment options compared in this study are: 1. Endoscopic coronary arterial bypass 2. Percutaneous Coronary Intervention. This study is aimed to determine the best treatment for patients with coronary artery disease.
The investigators will enroll the patients who underwent PCI and was based on real world clinical practice to collect the data regarding demographic, clinical, procedural information and clinical outcome using case report forms.
To examine the treatment of coronary de-novo stenosis with a sirolimus coated balloon versus a paclitaxel coated balloon
This study will evaluate the effect of a cardiac rehabilitation (CR) programme on blood protein molecules that may improve the function of arteries in coronary artery disease (CAD) patients who have suffered a heart attack. CAD patients who have either agreed or disagreed to take part in a CR programme will be recruited. This will allow a comparison of the study measurements between a group of patients who complete a CR programme and a group of patients who do not. The other objective of this study is to perform interviews with the study participants and their significant others (i.e. spouse, family member, or a close friend) to listen to the reasons why patients agreed or disagreed to take part in a CR programme.
