In patients with technically difficult arterial access such as those with previous surgery of the femoral arteries or patients with previous complications from invasive CCA, for example, false aneurysm formation, MSCT is a valuable non-invasive tool to assess the coronary circulation.
Adenovectors are also considered to be significantly more efficient than naked plasmid DNA for gene transfer; and naturally-occurring biological receptors for adenovectors are believed to facilitate its binding to a broad area of heart muscle supplied by the infused coronary circulation.
For cardiologists, internists, and others, specialists from the US, India, and Guatemala emphasize advances in the understanding of coronary circulation, the molecular mechanisms of myocyte function, and the assessment of regional and global ventricular functions in physiologic and pathologic conditions, and address advances in cardiovascular pharmacology, including the advantages and disadvantages of diuretic therapy, vasodilators, neurohormone modulators, positive inotropic agents, and antilipid, antithrombotic, and antiplatelet agents, and their clinical pharmacology in the management of various cardiovascular disorders.
Although establishing dual coronary circulation in childhood is a common practice, treatment of this anomaly in adult patients is controversial.
Based on data indicating that Generx appears to safe and has the potential to substantially increase coronary blood flow in the context of heart disease, together with an independent 10-year study that underscored the apparent significance of coronary circulation for long-term cardiac health, we believe that our Generx product candidate could be developed as a front-line therapy for coronary artery disease from a more global perspective.
The 12 articles in this book intended for cardiologists, researchers, physicians, and medical students consider current topics in the study of the coronary circulation in both smokers and non-smokers.

Stenting of the left main coronary artery provided TIMI 3 flow downstream to an impaired left coronary circulation system, relieving ongoing ischemia from his extensive disease.
Unique to our study were the direct determination of the net myocardial release of CKMB, myoglobin, cTnT, cTnI, and [beta]-MHC into the coronary circulation during reperfusion after cardioplegic cardiac arrest in patients undergoing elective coronary artery by-pass grafting (CABG) and the quantification of soluble cTnI, TnT, and [beta]-MHC pools in human fresh myocardium.

The deleterious effects of vascular risk factors on factors necessary for collateral growth, including proangiogenic growth factors, endothelial function, the redox state of the coronary circulation, intra and intercellular signaling, monocytes and bone marrow-derived progenitors cells may impair collateral development by altered microenvi-ronment of the coronary circulation.
In addition, this device is designed to securely conform to the arterial wall and shield the coronary circulation from plaque rupture," she continued.
