In clinical practice left ventricular (LV) function is commonly
evaluated by 2-D and M-mode echocardiography.
These modalities have significant limitations,and tissue
Doppler imaging (TDI) has been introduced as a quantitative
and more objective method for assessing myocardial
function. The TDI modalities include myocardial
velocity imaging,displacement imaging,strain rate imaging,
and strain imaging (Fig. 1).
At the end of the lecture, participants will know: the epidemiology of coronary artery disease, the risk factors associated with coronary artery disease, how to use online tools to estimate a patient's risk for myocardial infarction, how to screen for and couns a patient to reduce their risk for coronary artery disease.
(BQ) Part 1 book "Coronary artery disease - Assessment, surgery, prevention" presents the following contents: Regadenoson — Overview of applications in cardiology, noninvasive imaging for the assessment of coronary artery disease, optical coherence tomography for the assessment of coronary plaque vulnerability
(BQ) Part 2 book "Coronary artery disease - Assessment, surgery, prevention" presents the following contents: Coronary artery bypass surgery, surgical treatment in diffuse coronary artery disease, role and rationale for hybrid coronary artery revascularization, mechanical complications of myocardial infarction, prevention of coronary artery disease through diet,...
Angiotensin-converting–enzyme (ACE) inhibitors are effective in reducing the risk of
heart failure, myocardial infarction, and death from cardiovascular causes in patients
with left ventricular systolic dysfunction or heart failure. ACE inhibitors have also been
shown to reduce atherosclerotic complications in patients who have vascular disease
without heart failure.
Recent trials have demonstrated better outcomes with intensive than with moderate
statin treatment. Intensive treatment produced greater reductions in both low-density
lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol and C-reactive protein (CRP), suggesting a relationship
between these two biomarkers and disease progression.
We performed intravascular ultrasonography in 502 patients with angiographically documented
coronary disease. Patients were randomly assigned to receive moderate treatment
(40 mg of pravastatin orally per day) or intensive treatment (80 mg of atorvastatin
orally per day)....

recommendations for evidence-based screening (Table 4-3). In addition to these population-based guidelines, it is reasonable to consider family and social history to identify individuals with special risk (www.ahrq.gov/clinic/uspstfix.htm). For example, when there is a significant family history of breast, colon, or prostate cancer, it is prudent to initiate screening about 10 years before the age when the youngest family member developed cancer.
The mortality from ischemic heart disease has decreased in recent years. The better under‐
standing of risk factors associated with development of coronary artery disease (CAD) has
significantly contributed to this decline. Preventive measures such as aggressive therapy of
arterial hypertension, diabetes mellitus, and lipid disorders and by campaigning against the
smoking are important components of this medical success.

In patients with stable coronary artery disease, it remains unclear whether an initial
management strategy of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) with intensive
pharmacologic therapy and lifestyle intervention (optimal medical therapy) is superior
to optimal medical therapy alone in reducing the risk of cardiovascular events.
We conducted a randomized trial involving 2287 patients who had objective evidence
of myocardial ischemia and significant coronary artery disease at 50 U.S. and Canadian
