Cardiac interventional procedures have been used widely for treatment of acute coronary heart disease in developing countries, however, information on quality and safety from everyday clinical practice remains limited. This thesis developed a pilot clinical quality registry to understand the patient profiles, outcomes post procedure and in-hospital cost of patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention in Vietnam. Results revealed that despite the high cost, this procedure has been used in high volume and outcomes were positive.

Haemodynamic evaluation of coronary artery plaques : prediction of coronary atherosclerosis and disease progressionChaichana, Thanapong (2012)Coronary artery disease is the leading cause of death in advanced countries. Coronary artery disease tends to develop at locations where disturbed flow patterns occur, such as the left coronary artery. Haemodynamic change ...
Computational fluid dynamics analysis of the effect of simulated plaques in the left coronary artery: A preliminary study.Chaichana, T.; Jewkes, James; Sun, Zhonghua (2011)Background: Atherosclerosis is the most common cause of coronary artery disease which is formed by plaque presence inside the artery wall leading to blockage of the blood supply to the heart muscle. The mechanism of ...
