A STUDY OF CARDIAC ISCHEMIA PRODUCED BY TEMPORARY CORONARY ARTERY LIGATION
- Systemic Arterial Compliance in Patients with Non Obstructive Cardiomyopathy (NOCM), and Coronary Artery Disease (CAD). Levy, Bernard I.; Babalis, Dimitri; Masquet, Christianne; Slarna, Robert // Angiology;May1983, Vol. 34 Issue 5, p331
Arterial compliance had been estimated in three groups of patients: control, NOCM, and CAD, from analysis of the arterial pressure curve. In the three groups, a simple first order Winkessel model had been validated during normal and post extrasystolic beats. The measured arterial compliance...
- Coronary Artery Anatomy and Apical Sparing in Apical Ballooning Syndrome: Implications for Diagnosis and Aetiology. To, Andrew C.Y.; Kay, Patrick; Khan, Ali A.; Kerr, Andrew J. // Heart, Lung & Circulation;Apr2010, Vol. 19 Issue 4, p219
Background: Apical ballooning syndrome (ABS) is characterised by transient regional systolic dysfunction involving the left ventricular apex and mid-myocardial segments. The absence of obstructive coronary disease is required in some diagnostic criteria. Some investigators have suggested that a...
- Effect of ectasia size or the ectasia ratio on the thrombosis in myocardial infarction frame count in patients with isolated coronary artery ectasia. Kosar, Feridun; Acikgoz, Nusret; Sahin, Ibrahim; Topal, Ergun; Aksoy, Yuksel; Cehreli, Sengul // Heart & Vessels;Sep2005, Vol. 20 Issue 5, p199
Coronary blood flow was quantified using the thrombosis in myocardial infarction (TIMI) frame-count method. This measurement has been significantly correlated with flow velocity measured invasively by use of a Doppler flow wire. Coronary artery ectasia or aneurysm (CEA) is thought to be present...
- Advent of the coronary circulation: Comings and goings among most of the world's vertebrates. Farrell, T.; Cox, G.; Farrell, N.; Jourdan, H. // Proceedings of the Physiological Society;2013, p195P
The embryonic development of a coronary circulation in birds and mammals occurs in concert with myocardial compaction, likely in response to myocardial hypoxia and the work of a cardiac chamber. Whether similar driving forces featured prominently during the evolution of the coronary circulation...
- Does preoperative beta-blocker offer myocardial protection during coronary artery bypass grafting? da Costa Rocha, Bruno // Brazilian Journal of Cardiovascular Surgery;2013, Vol. 28 Issue 4, pVIII
An introduction is presented in which the editor discusses various reports within the issue on topics including myocardial ischemia, coronary artery bypass grafting surgery, and cardiac muscle apoptosis.
- SEVERE CORONARY ARTERY DISEASE MASQUERADING CARDIOMYOPATHY. Zoneraich, Samuel; Zoneraich, Olga; Gupta, Mohinder P. // Angiology;Oct1974, Vol. 25 Issue 9, p583
Four patients presented with a clinical pattern of idiopathic cardiomyopathy. Anasarca of recent onset was the sole manifestation in the second patient. Ventriculography and selective coronary angiography revealed the presence of occlusive disease of all three coronary arteries as the underlying...
- Measurements of cardiac troponin T in patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. Sato, Y.; Taniguchi, R.; Nagai, K.; Makiyama, T.; Okada, H.; Yamada, T.; Matsumori, A.; Takatsu, Y. // Heart;Jun2003, Vol. 89 Issue 6, p659
Studies the measurements of cardiac troponin T in patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM). Mechanisms of myocyte injury in HCM; Relative myocardial ischemia resulting from an imbalance between inappropriate hypertrophy of the myocardium and insufficient coronary arterial supply.
- Different Treatment Options in Chronic Coronary Artery Disease-When Is It the Time for Medical Treatment, Percutaneous Coronary Intervention or Aortocoronary Bypass Surgery? Ruß, Martin; Cremer, Jochen; Krian, Arno; Meinertz, Thomas; Werdan, Karl; Zerkowski, Hans-Reinhard // Deutsches Aerzteblatt International;4/10/2009, Vol. 106 Issue 15, p1
The article focuses on different treatment options in chronic coronary artery disease (CAD), including medical treatment, percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) or aortocoronary bypass (ACB) surgery. It is stated that in acute coronary syndrome (ACS), the most important measures are swift...
- coronary blood flow. // Taber's Cyclopedic Medical Dictionary (2009);2009, Issue 21, p529
An encyclopedia entry for "coronary blood flow," referring to the amount of blood perfusing the heart muscle through the coronary arteries, is presented.
