Coronary sinus reducer for the treatment of chronic refractory angina pectoris.

Future Cardiol 2022 Jun 27. Epub 2022 Jun 27.

Interventional Cardiology Unit, GVM Care & Research Maria Cecilia Hospital, Via Madonna di Genova 1, Cotignola, RA, 48033, Italy.

Refractory angina represents the final stage of chronic coronary artery disease, where anginal symptoms persist despite complete epicardial coronary artery revascularization and maximally tolerated pharmacological therapy. Percutaneous narrowing of the coronary sinus with the Coronary Sinus Reducer device was first attempted in humans in 2005 and has been shown to improve angina symptoms and the quality of life of patients suffering chronic refractory angina. It was recently included in the European guidelines for the management of chronic coronary syndrome and is progressively gaining popularity. Read More

[Coronary microvascular dysfunction: mechanisms and clinical outcome].

G Ital Cardiol (Rome) 2022 Jun;23(6):397-407

Dipartimento di Scienze Cliniche Internistiche, Anestesiologiche e Cardiovascolari, Sapienza Università di Roma, Roma.

A large percentage of patients, predominantly female, who undergo coronary angiography for typical chest pain do not have significant coronary stenosis. Many of these patients with microvascular myocardial disease have left ventricular hypertrophy, cardiomyopathies, valve disease, or other clinical conditions. The definition of microvascular angina is based on (i) symptoms of myocardial ischemia, (ii) absence of obstructive coronary artery disease (<50% stenosis on coronary angiography or coronary computed tomography scan), (iii) objective evidence of myocardial ischemia (ischemic electrocardiographic abnormalities during episodes of chest pain and/or myocardial perfusion defects or regional contractility abnormalities), and (iv) pathological indices of microcirculation (index of microcirculatory resistance >25, coronary flow reserve <2.

Department of Neuroscience, South-Central University for Nationalities, Wuhan 430074, China; School of Medicine, Guizhou University, Guiyang 550025, China. Electronic address:

The increased prevalence of hypertensive patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is evident worldwide, leading to a higher risk of cardiovascular disease onset, which is substantially associated with disabilities and mortality in the clinic. In order to achieve the satisfyingly clinical outcomes and prognosis, the comprehensive therapies have been conducted with a beneficial effect on both blood pressure and glucose homeostasis, and clinical trials reveal that some kind of antihypertensive drugs such as angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors (ACE-I) may, at least in part, meet the dual requirement during the disease management. As a nonselective β-blocker, carvedilol is employed for treating many cardiovascular diseases in clinical practice, including hypertension, angina pectoris and heart failure, and also exhibit the effectiveness for glycemic control and insulin resistance.
