The secondary aim is to study the role of these parameters in predicting critical coronary stenosis
requiring urgent intervention.
Increased plasma levels of intermedin and brain natriuretic peptide associated with severity of coronary stenosis
in acute coronary syndrome.
Shiga et al., "Association between smoking habits and severity of coronary stenosis
as assessed by coronary computed tomography angiography," Heart and Vessels, vol.
Infarct related artery (IRA), coronary stenosis
, and collateral grading were estimated by two independent cardiologists who were blinded to the clinical information and laboratory parameters of the patients.
Next, the effect of coronary stenosis
on the flow of fluid (blood) and discrete particles (bioparticles) is taken into investigation.
Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) is not significantly better than a placebo procedure in improving exercise capacity or symptoms, even in patients with severe coronary stenosis
, according to the ORBITA study published in The Lancet.
In the absence of epicardial coronary stenosis
, an increased oxygen myocardial demand can be achieved by an increase in coronary flow due to arterial vasodilatation, commonly referred to as "coronary reserve," which can increase up to four times the basal blood flow.
A practical guide to reading CT coronary angiograms: how to avoid mistakes when assessing for coronary stenosis
. Int J Cardiovasc Imaging 2007; 23: 617-33.
However, the patient suffered hypertension, which is a coronary risk factor, and so an assessment of coronary stenosis
The 2014 American Heart Association Consensus Statement on noninvasive diagnostic testing in women with suspected ischemic heart disease highlighted the development of novel diagnostic tools that have an expanded role in the evaluation of symptomatic female patients to detect not only focal epicardial coronary stenosis
, but also nonobstructive atherosclerosis as well as the identification of ischemia resulting from microvascular dysfunction.
Plasma Levels of Circulating NO, eNOS, MDA, and SOD3 in Very Old Patients with Coronary Stenosis
. The plasma levels of NO, eNOS, and SOD3 were decreased markedly in MVD with one CTO group when compared with MVD without CTO group and further reduced in MVD with multiple CTO group when compared with MVD with one CTO group (P < 0.001).
