  • ischemic heart d
  • Although the SYNTAX score was not conceived as a method to predict outcomes related to anatomic characteristics, some reports have demonstrated that it may be an effective tool for predicting the risk of major ischemic events in patients undergoing PCI with stable ischemic heart disease and multivessel or left main disease, Palmerini and colleagues wrote. (medpagetoday.com)
  • Most ruptures and clotting events are too small to produce symptoms, though they still produce heart muscle damage, a slow progressive process resulting in ischemic heart disease, the most common basis for congestive heart failure. (wikipedia.org)
  • severity
  • As judged by exercise performance, the presence of left main disease did not correlate with the severity of the patient's symptomatology. (bmj.com)

  • The relatively low SYNTAX scores were surprising and reflect real-world PCI in patients with acute coronary syndromes," Stone said. (medpagetoday.com)
  • The exercise tests of 26 male patients with significant left main disease were compared with those of 51 patients with three-vessel disease and 38 patients with two-vessel disease. (bmj.com)
  • Propranolol did not influence the frequency of an ischaemic response in patients with left main or three-vessel disease. (bmj.com)
  • SNPs
  • The LDLR gene also contains one of 27 SNPs associated with increased risk of coronary artery disease. (wikipedia.org)
  • GWASs typically focus on associations between single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and traits like major human diseases, but can equally be applied to any other organism. (wikipedia.org)
  • The associated SNPs are then considered to mark a region of the human genome that may influence the risk of disease. (wikipedia.org)
  • GWA studies identify SNPs and other variants in DNA associated with a disease, but they cannot on their own specify which genes are causal. (wikipedia.org)
