This is the first case of in vivo demonstration by cinearteriography of intercoronary arterial anastomosis in a man without coronary artery disease. The left anterior descending artery was opacified by contrast medium injected into the conus branch of the right coronary artery and vice versa. The patient had chronic obstructive lung disease with cor pulmonale. The possible roles of anoxia, polycythemia, right ventricular hypertrophy and high cardiac output in contributing to the development and in vivo demonstration of intercoronary arterial anastomosis in the absence of coronary artery disease and its clinical implication are discussed.

    Repeated short-term hypoxia (interval hypoxia) has been suggested to increase exercise tolerance by enhancing stress resistance and/or improving oxygen delivery. As low exercise tolerance contributes to mortality in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) and chronic obstructive pulmonary...

    Hypertension increases the risk of reinfarction and sudden death in the post-myocardial infarction patient, and the same also applies to the co-existing left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH). Thus the therapeutic aim in such patients are: (1) appropriate blood pressure (BP) control; (2) regression...
