Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is caused by atherosclerosis of the artery and is classified into coronary artery disease, cerebrovascular disease, and peripheral arterial disease, depending on the location of the artery and the target organs. However, since CVD share a similar pathophysiology and the probability of incidence of other CVD in CVD patients is very high. It is thought that CVD incidence and mortality can be reduced by predicting the degree of incidence of other CVD in CVD patients. The aim of this study is to investigate the incidence and mortality of other CVD diseases in CVD patients.
The study aim is to evaluate whether DPP4-inhibitor could reduce coronary atherosclerosis assessed by CT scan in patients receiving insulin for diabetes mellitus. In this retrospective study, change in coronary calcium burden between two coronary CT scan will be compared in patients with and without receiving DPP4-inhibitor.
DESIGN: Prospective, single-arm, multicenter, observational, prospective registry of the use of the RESOLUTE-ONYX™ zotarolimus-eluting stent in percutaneous coronary intervention in small vessels. Clinical follow-up at 1 month, 6 months and 1 year. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the safety and efficacy of using RESOLUTE-ONYX zotarolimus-eluting stent in PCI in small vessels (diameter ≤2.5 mm). DISEASE UNDER STUDY: Adult patients with coronary artery disease (stable angina, silent ischemia or non-ST-segment elevation acute coronary syndrome) undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention on vessels with a diameter less than or equal to 2.5 mm. TOTAL NUMBER OF PATIENTS: Approximately 320 patients are expected to be included in the study.
OBJECTIVES The goal of this study is to evaluate the self-achieved smoking cessation supported with cytisine smoking cessation and its' on platelet aggregation and prothrombotic state in patients after coronary angiography and PCI. BACKGROUND Cigarette smoking is a major risk factor of coronary artery disease (CAD). Smoking cessation is one of the most cost-effective intervention in lifestyle. Self-reported rates of smoking cessation are reasonably low. Cytisine is promising drug in support of smoking cessation. Smoking affects various components leading to arterial thrombosis, and the effect of smoking cessation on prothrombotic state and platelet aggregation is still under investigation GOAL To assess rates of smoking cessation in patients after coronary angiography and PCI and factors influencing success in smoking cessation To assess feasibility, safety and efficacy of cytisine in smoking patients To assess effect of smoking cessation on platelet aggregation in patients treated with clopidogrel and on prothrombotic state. METHODS A prospective nonrandomized observational study of patients after coronary angiography.
Patients in this prospective cohort study were selected if they had a history of PCI more than 1 year previously. 405 patients were divided based on their preferences to fasting and non fasting and after 1 month of fasting major adverse cardiovascular events were measured
The presence of chronic blockage of coronary arteries, which we may accept as the terminal point of atherosclerotic coronary artery disease, is closely associated with a poor prognosis. The Discovery of markers that may distinguish patients with a high risk of chronic total occlusion development among patients monitored with the diagnosis of stable coronary artery disease may be important for being able to reduce the increased mortality and morbidity rates. Oxidative stress status may be one of the markers that play a role in and/or show the development of chronic total occlusion. It was reported that it has a role in the progression, erosion, and instability of atherosclerotic plaques in coronary arteries. To the best of our knowledge, the relationship between chronic total occlusion development and oxidative stress status in stable coronary artery disease has not been studied. This study investigated the relationships in the oxidative stress status evaluated over TAS, TOS, OSI, Thiol/Disulfide Homeostasis, and antioxidative vitamin levels and possible differences in patients with noncritical coronary artery disease and those with chronic total occlusion.
It is widely accepted that coronary artery disease (CAD) is related to a high mortality. It is predicted that an increase of approximately 21.3 million cardiovascular events and 7.7 million cardiovascular deaths over 2010 to 2030 in China.1 Male sex, diabetes mellitus, hypertension, hypercholesterolemia, obesity and smoking are all traditionally considered as risk factors for CAD. In recent decades, tremendous progress toward the prevention and treatment of traditional cardiovascular risk factors have helped decrease the morbidity and mortality from CAD, but the condition remains a major public health challenge worldwide. Looking into the other potential risk factors (OSA) for CAD, it may help to develop additional preventative strategies and further reduce the incidence and mortality of CAD.
Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) is the top killer nowadays. Pressure-wire-based Fractional Flow Reserve (FFR) is the gold standard for measuring ischemia in coronary arteries. CFD-based RuiXin-FFR, which is noninvasive, is developed recently. But its accuracy and effectiveness is not verified by a clinical trial. This is a multi-center and prospective trial. The primary end point is the measurement of sensitivity and specificity of CFD-based RuiXin-FFR.
Investigators evaluated the efficacy of a pilot-tested mHealth intervention to improving medication adherence and health outcomes among patients with coronary heart disease.
Large population cross sectional study between 2019-2020 for 4207 new patients that refer to professor Kojuri cardiovascular clinic in shiraz, Iran, was conducted. Patients were undergone selective coronary angiography from radial artery approach by an expert interventional cardiologist. ABI were measured for all patients. ABI ratio was compared with the results of coronary angiography for patients who underwent coronary angiography to measure specificity and sensitivity.
