    1. Association Between Dietary Intakes and Plaque Vulnerability Measured by Optical Coherence Tomography in Patients With Coronary Heart Disease: A Mediation Analysis of Inflammatory Factors

      Association Between Dietary Intakes and Plaque Vulnerability Measured by Optical Coherence Tomography in Patients With Coronary Heart Disease: A Mediation Analysis of Inflammatory Factors

      Although studies have proven that diet has a critical role in preventing or delaying atherosclerosis and is far simpler to adjust and adhere to than other risk factors, the underlying mechanisms behind this effect remain not well comprehended. The purpose of this investigation was to determine the impact of inflammatory factors on the connection between dietary ingestion and coronary plaque fragility as measured via optical coherence tomography (OCT) in patients with coronary heart disease (CHD). This research eventually comprised 194 participants with CHD who met the inclusion and exclusion criteria. Semi-quantitative food frequency questionnaire (SQFFQ) was utilized to investigate dietary ...

    2. Optical Coherence Tomography Combined with Fluorescein Fundus Angiography under Intelligent Algorithm to Evaluate the Clinical Efficacy of Ranibizumab Combined with Panretinal Photocoagulation in the Treatment of Macular Edema of Diabetic Retinopathy Pati

      Optical Coherence Tomography Combined with Fluorescein Fundus Angiography under Intelligent Algorithm to Evaluate the Clinical Efficacy of Ranibizumab Combined with Panretinal Photocoagulation in the Treatment of Macular Edema of Diabetic Retinopathy Pati

      This study aimed at investigating the clinical effect of ranibizumab combined with panretinal photocoagulation in the treatment of macular edema in diabetic retinopathy (DR) patients. A parametric deformation model was constructed, and based on this, it was evaluated using optical coherence tomography (OCT) combined with fluorescein fundus angiography (FFA). 56 DR patients (80 eyes) who needed surgery were selected for OCT and FFA scanning, and 0.5 mg ranibizumab was administered intravitreal injection before surgery. It should observe the OCT and FFA image characteristics of patients. In addition, the vision correction status before the surgery, 1 month, 3 months, and ...

    3. The potential mediating effects of inflammation on the association between Type D personality and coronary plaque vulnerability in patients with coronary artery disease: An optical coherence tomography study

      The potential mediating effects of inflammation on the association between Type D personality and coronary plaque vulnerability in patients with coronary artery disease: An optical coherence tomography study

      Objective: Type D personality involves the interaction between negative affectivity with social inhibition and has been associated with an increased risk of coronary artery disease (CAD) progression and coronary plaque vulnerability. However, the underlying mechanisms in the relationship between Type D personality and coronary plaque vulnerability remain indeterminate. The present study examined the potential mediating effects of inflammation biomarkers on the association between Type D personality and coronary plaque vulnerability in patients with CAD. Methods: A total of 347 patients(mean age = 56.6 ± 11.2 years; 29.3 % women) with CAD who had culprit coronary plaques were examined for ...

    4. Association between food and nutrients intakes and coronary plaque vulnerability in patients with coronary heart disease: An optical coherence tomography study

      Association between food and nutrients intakes and coronary plaque vulnerability in patients with coronary heart disease: An optical coherence tomography study

      Background and aims: Dietary intakes play important roles in the prevention and treatment of coronary heart disease (CHD). Coronary plaque vulnerability is the key mechanism leading to CHD progression. We aimed to explore the association between dietary intakes and plaque vulnerability via optical coherence tomography (OCT). Methods and results: A total of 314 CHD patients were included in this study. Dietary intake status was assessed by semi-quantitative food frequency questionnaire and plaque vulnerability was measured by OCT. The results showed that vegetables were negatively associated with macrophage infiltration, thin cap fibroatheroma (TCFA) and thrombus [odds ratio (OR) = 0.48, 0 ...

    5. Type D Personality and Coronary Plaque Vulnerability in Patients With Coronary Artery Disease: An Optical Coherence Tomography Study

      Type D Personality and Coronary Plaque Vulnerability in Patients With Coronary Artery Disease: An Optical Coherence Tomography Study

      Objective: To investigate the association between Type D personality and higher incidence of major adverse cardiac events, we used in vivo optical coherence tomography (OCT) to evaluate the association between Type D with coronary plaque characteristics. Methods: A total of 109 patients who had culprit coronary plaque (s) were included in the study. The Type D construct was analyzed using both the categorized and the continuous approaches. Plaque vulnerability of culprit lesions was measured by OCT. Results: After adjusting for demographic and clinical factors, multivariate analysis demonstrated that Type D was associated with lipid plaque (odds ratio [OR] = 4.87 ...
