Ischaemic heart disease

Common Name(s)

Ischaemic heart disease

Ischemic heart disease is a condition where the heart does not receive enough blood. The heart is a muscle that requires nutrients and oxygen. These are supplied by blood that travels through tubes or vessels called the “coronary arteries”. When these tubes become damaged or clogged, limiting the blood flow to the heart, a patient can develop ischemic heart disease. This leads to symptoms of chest pain and shortness of breath, and when the arteries are completely blocked, a patient may have a heart attack. A physician can diagnose ischemic heart disease with a physical exam and by asking questions, but will often also use blood tests, stress tests, or imaging, such as an x-ray. Ischemic heart disease can be managed with healthy life style changes, medication, and, if needed, surgery.

State of the art: non-invasive imaging in ischaemic heart disease.
 

Author(s): Gianluca Pontone, Andrea I Guaricci, Danilo Neglia, Daniele Andreini

Journal: EuroIntervention. 2017 Aug;13(6):654-665.

 

Evaluation of non-invasive imaging modalities is shifting to an assessment of their effect on clinical outcomes rather than of their diagnostic accuracy. For this reason, we present the most useful and commonly used non-invasive tests in the clinical scenario of patients with suspected ...
