The American College of Cardiology Foundation, along with key specialty and subspecialty societies, conducted an appropriate use review of common clinical scenarios where cardiac computed tomography (CCT) is frequently considered. The present document is an update to the original CCT/cardiac magnetic resonance appropriateness criteria published in 2006,(More)
The ability to classify lesion composition accurately may be important for selecting or guiding interventional therapy and for understanding the pathophysiologic basis of individual lesions. To assess the usefulness of ultrasound in classifying lesions, intracoronary ultrasound images were obtained from 44 atherosclerotic lesions in patients before(More)
Assessment of the functional significance of anatomically defined coronary stenoses has been hampered by the lack of clinically applicable techniques of measuring coronary blood flow or flow ratios. A digital angiographic technique is reported that allows rapid analysis of relative regional coronary blood flow during routine cardiac catheterization. This(More)
OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to test the hypothesis that endothelial dysfunction occurs in humans before the development of structural coronary atherosclerosis when risk factors for this disease are present. BACKGROUND Animal studies have demonstrated that known risk factors for coronary atherosclerosis (hyperlipidemia, hypertension, diabetes)(More)
OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to demonstrate the feasibility of routine transfer of ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) patients to achieve percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in less than 90 min from presentation. BACKGROUND Many PCI hospitals have achieved routine door-to-balloon times under 90 min for patients with STEMI(More)
