Study protocol: a randomised controlled trial investigating the effect of exercise training on peripheral blood gene expression in patients with stable angina
- Heart rate variability and turbulence to determine true coronary artery disease in patients with ST segment depression without angina during exercise stress testing. Celik, Atac; Ozturk, Ahmet; Ozbek, Kerem; Kadi, Hasan; Koc, Fatih; Ceyhan, Koksal; Erkorkmaz, Unal // Clinical & Investigative Medicine;Dec2011, Vol. 34 Issue 6, pE349
Purpose: ST segment depression without angina during an exercise stress test causes diagnostic problems, particularly in non-diabetic patients. Heart rate variability (HRV) and heart rate turbulence (HRT) are used to evaluate the changes in cardiac autonomic functions and are also both decreased...
- 'Warm-up Angina': harnessing the benefits of exercise and myocardial ischaemia. Williams, Rupert P.; Manou-Stathopoulou, Vasiliki; Redwood, Simon R.; Marber, Michael S. // Heart;Jan2014, Vol. 100 Issue 2, p106
The phenomenon of warm-up angina was first noted over 200 years ago. It describes the curious observation whereby exercise-induced ischaemia on second effort is significantly reduced or even abolished if separated from first effort by a brief rest period. However, the precise mechanism via which...
- Variations in use of cardiology services in a health authority: Comparison of coronary artery... Payne, Nick; Saul, Carol // BMJ: British Medical Journal (International Edition);1/25/97, Vol. 314 Issue 7076, p257
Explores the relation between rates of coronary artery revascularization and prevalence of angina to assess whether use of health services reflects need. Determining prevalence of angina; Prevalence of symptoms and mortality from coronary heart disease compared with deprivation; Proxy measures...
- Interaction between cigarettes and propranolol in treatment of angina pectoris. Fox, Kim; Jonathan, Anne; Williams, Huw; Selwyn, Andrew // British Medical Journal;7/19/1980, Vol. 281 Issue 6234, p191
Focuses on the interaction between cigarettes and propranolol in the treatment of angina pectoris. Effects of smoking in the heart; Effectivity of the treatment for angina pectoris; Signs of myocardial ischaemia.
- In the Clinic: Stable Ischemic Heart Disease. // Annals of Internal Medicine;1/7/2014, Vol. 160 Issue 1, p1TC1-1
The article presents answers to several questions related to Stable Ischemic Heart Disease (SIHD) related to its diagnosis and treatment including differentiating between patients with SIHD and unstable angina, diagnostic test for the disease and the goals of treatment.
- Diagnostic Potential of Plasmatic MicroRNA Signatures in Stable and Unstable Angina. D'Alessandra, Yuri; Carena, Maria Cristina; Spazzafumo, Liana; Martinelli, Federico; Bassetti, Beatrice; Devanna, Paolo; Rubino, Mara; Marenzi, Giancarlo; Colombo, Gualtiero I.; Achilli, Felice; Maggiolini, Stefano; Capogrossi, Maurizio C.; Pompilio, Giulio // PLoS ONE;Nov2013, Vol. 8 Issue 11, p1
Purpose:We examined circulating miRNA expression profiles in plasma of patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) vs. matched controls, with the aim of identifying novel discriminating biomarkers of Stable (SA) and Unstable (UA) angina. Methods:An exploratory analysis of plasmatic...
- Spinal Cord Stimulation Significantly Improves Refractory Angina Pectoris-A Local Experience: Spinal Cord Stimulation in Refractory Angina. Chua, Roderick; Keogh, Anne // Heart, Lung & Circulation;Mar2005, Vol. 14 Issue 1, p3
Background:: Severe refractory angina pectoris can occur in end-stage coronary artery disease despite maximal medical and revascularization therapy. Spinal cord stimulation is an under-utilized but well-established modality for the treatment of intractable angina pain. Aim:: To illustrate the...
