Ischaemic heart disease is probably the most important cause of heart failure. All patients with heart failure may benefit from treatment designed to retard progressive ventricular dysfunction and arrhythmias. Patients with heart failure due to ischaemic heart disease may also, theoretically,...
The most commonly used techniques for imaging the effects of coronary artery disease (CAD) on the heart are myocardial perfusion scintigraphy (MPS) and echocardiography. Both tests have been validated during exercise and pharmacological stress and they are valuable for the diagnosis and aiding...
Invasive investigation of coronary artery disease is relatively expensive, and carries risks including a mortality of approximately 1 in 2000. It would not be practical or appropriate to perform invasive investigation in all patients with a clinical diagnosis of coronary artery disease, still...
The causes of accelerated atherogenesis in diabetes are unclear but the consequences in terms of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality are profound. Thus diabetes not only increases the risk of coronary heart disease but also increases the case fatality rate, ensuring that the majority of...
Advances in our understanding of angiogenesis and blood vessel growth have given rise to efforts to develop novel therapeutic approaches for patients with ischaemia who are not adequately treated with presently available therapies. Among the growth factors that play a role in blood vessel growth...
Patients who present with angina pectoris due to underlying coronary artery disease which is not controlled by medical therapy, and who have disease which is not amenable to conventional forms of revascularisation, present an increasing clinical problem. Laser techniques have been introduced to...
Patients may present with a variety of syndromes related to ischaemic heart disease. These include unstable or stable angina pectoris, acute myocardial infarction, and occasionally cardiac failure without prior anginal pain or infarction. For the purposes of this review, it will generally be...
Traditional concepts of the pathogenesis of acute coronary syndromes have changed over the last few years. In particular it has been demonstrated that high-risk lesions are not necessarily angiographically severe. Rather, unstable high risk lesions are the ones composed of large lipid cores and...
Stent implantation has become the new standard angioplasty procedure. In-stent re-stenosis remains the major limitation of coronary stenting. Re-stenosis is related to patient-, lesion- and procedure-specific factors. Patient-specific factors can not be influenced to any extent....
