Inflammation

A localized protective response resulting from injury or destruction of tissues. Inflammation serves to destroy, dilute, or wall off both the injurious agent and the injured tissue. In the acute phase, inflammation is characterized by the signs of pain, heat, redness, swelling, and loss of function. Histologically, inflammation involves a complex series of events, including dilatation of arterioles, capillaries, and venules, with increased permeability and blood flow; exudation of fluids, including plasma proteins; and leukocyte migration into the site of inflammation. [from NCI]

Inflammatory Response

A part of innate immunity, the Inflammatory Response occurs when injured tissues induce release of vasodilatory, opsonizing, and chemotactic mediators that attract macrophages and leukocytes to phagocytize and destroy foreign substances; dilate local blood vessels increasing local blood flow; increase capillary permeability; produce edematous swelling; and induce pain. Plasma- and cell-derived inflammatory mediators include Prostaglandins, Leukotrines, Cytokines, Lymphokines, Monokines, PAF, Histamine, Bradykinin, Complement, and Interferons. [from NCI]

Mediator

An agent that acts as a link between parties, objects, or actions. [from NCI]

Coronary Restenosis

Recurrent narrowing or constriction of a coronary artery following surgical procedures performed to alleviate a prior obstruction. [from MeSH]

MedGen UID:
182688
Concept ID:
C0948480
Disease or Syndrome
10.

Genetic predisposition

A latent susceptibility to disease at the genetic level, which may be activated under certain conditions. [from MeSH]

MedGen UID:
137259
Concept ID:
C0314657
Organism Attribute
11.

Myocardial ischemia

A disorder of cardiac function caused by insufficient blood flow to the muscle tissue of the heart. The decreased blood flow may be due to narrowing of the coronary arteries (CORONARY ARTERY DISEASE), to obstruction by a thrombus (CORONARY THROMBOSIS), or less commonly, to diffuse narrowing of arterioles and other small vessels within the heart. Severe interruption of the blood supply to the myocardial tissue may result in necrosis of cardiac muscle (MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION). [from MeSH]

MedGen UID:
101801
Concept ID:
C0151744
Disease or Syndrome
12.

Coronary artery stenosis

Narrowing of the coronary artery lumen diameter. [from NCI]

MedGen UID:
66859
Concept ID:
C0242231
Disease or Syndrome
13.

Risk factor

An aspect of personal behavior or lifestyle, environmental exposure, inborn or inherited characteristic, which, on the basis of epidemiological evidence, is known to be associated with a health-related condition considered important to prevent. [from MeSH]

MedGen UID:
48477
Concept ID:
C0035648
Finding
14.

Vascular disorder

A non-neoplastic or neoplastic disorder affecting the arteries, veins, or lymphatic vessels. Examples include vasculitis, thrombophlebitis, arteriosclerosis, lymphedema, hemangioma, and angiosarcoma. [from NCI]

MedGen UID:
22621
Concept ID:
C0042373
Disease or Syndrome
15.

Vascular Surgical Procedures

Operative procedures for the treatment of vascular disorders. [from MeSH]

MedGen UID:
21830
Concept ID:
C0042381
Therapeutic or Preventive Procedure
16.

Heart disease

A non-neoplastic or neoplastic disorder that affects the heart and/or the pericardium. Representative examples include endocarditis, pericarditis, atrial myxoma, cardiac myeloid sarcoma, and pericardial malignant mesothelioma. [from NCI]

MedGen UID:
5458
Concept ID:
C0018799
Disease or Syndrome
17.

Coronary heart disease

An imbalance between myocardial functional requirements and the capacity of the CORONARY VESSELS to supply sufficient blood flow. It is a form of MYOCARDIAL ISCHEMIA (insufficient blood supply to the heart muscle) caused by a decreased capacity of the coronary vessels. [from MeSH]

MedGen UID:
3624
Concept ID:
C0010068
Disease or Syndrome
18.

Disorder of cardiovascular system

A non-neoplastic or neoplastic disorder affecting the heart or the vessels (arteries, veins and lymph vessels). Representative examples of non-neoplastic cardiovascular disorders are endocarditis and hypertension. Representative examples of neoplastic cardiovascular disorders are endocardial myxoma and angiosarcoma. [from NCI]
