ischaemic heart disease

(redirected from Myocardial ischaemia)

is·che·mic heart dis·ease

(is-kē'mik hahrt di-zēz')
A general term for diseases of the heart caused by insufficient blood supply to the myocardium, e.g., atherosclerotic coronary artery disease, angina pectoris, unstable angina, and myocardial infarction.
Synonym(s): ischaemic heart disease, ischaemic heart disease.

coronary artery disease

also known as coronary heart disease or ischaemic heart disease. Includes angina pectoris and myocardial infarction. A deficient supply of oxygenated blood to the myocardium causes central chest pain of varying intensity that may radiate to arms and jaw. The blood vessels are usually narrowed by atheromatous plaques. Commonest cause of sudden death in sport in those over 45 years. See also angina pectoris, cardiac rehabilitation.

The increased oxygen demand of the right ventricle coupled with a reduction in coronary perfusion may cause myocardial ischaemia.
Of the novel candidates in development, we have selected just one for analysis: Generx (alferminogene tadenovec, Ad5FGF-4) from Cardium Therapeutics, which is in Phase III for myocardial ischaemia and associated angina.
Stress-testing is also recommended for participants who are likely to experience myocardial ischaemia or are at high risk of malignant ventricular arrhythmias.
Due to the close association of cardiovascular disease and ED, patients with ED should be evaluated as to whether they may suffer from cardiovascular risk factors including hypertension, cardiovascular disease or silent myocardial ischaemia (27).

They analysed data on 84,010 hospital admissions for heart attack recorded in the Myocardial Ischaemia National Audit Project (MINAP) during 2003-2006, and daily temperatures from the British Atmospheric Data Centre, focusing on 15 geographical areas in England and Wales.
