Angiography is widely used to assess the severity of coronary lesions. Despite its prevalence and extensive clinical experience with its use, many limitations of angiographic studies are well known. The ischemic significance of stenoses can often only be clarified by direct, invasive intracoronary pressure measurement (FFR). This allows a more accurate identification of the culprit lesion and allows avoiding the unnecessary angioplasty of a hemodynamically insignificant stenosis. 3D reconstruction with digital angiography can help determine the degree of constriction. In these models, virtual FFR values can be determined by simulating flow and pressure values. The aim of the study is to model FFR measurement using coronary angiography and to compare the results.

Acute Coronary Syndrome (ACS) worldwide is the third most commonly reported death among people over 65 years of age. In Europe, every sixth male and seventh female cause of death is myocardial infarction. While in the last 10 years the frequency of ST elevation myocardial infarction has decreased by 30%, and the frequency of ST elevation-free infarction (NSTEMI) has increased substantially.
PCI has proven to be a reliable semi-invasive procedure for these disorders, but high age and its often associated comorbidities may limit its benefit. Earlier studies demonstrated lower success rates and the frequent complications following intervention among elderly. The statistical method of meta-analysis is suitable for summing up the published studies in the subject, which also allows to analyzis of the of the obtained evidences and results.

In the treatment of the acute myocardial infarction, interventional revascularization through coronary intervention has become of predominant importance. A national network of catheter labs was established to provide early revascularization. Clinical characteristics of patients undergoing treatment for an event of myocardial infarction are recorded by the Hungarian Myocardial Infarction Register. Our goal is to conduct observational clinical studies with the use of register data in order to identify factors influencing the prognosis of myocardial infarct patients.

Pulmonary hypertension is a condition with heterogenous origin and poor prognosis. The diagnosis and identification of the etiology frequently requires right heart catheterization. During the RHC several parameters of pulmonary circulation is determined. The aim of the project is to clarify prognostic significance of these parameters using clinical follow-up studies.
