The dominant artery is one that gives posterior descending artery and supply the inferior portion of the interventricular groove. The dominance can be: right, left and balanced (co-dominant) circulation with several subtypes. The aim of this study was to determinate the dominance patterns of the...
- Brachial Artery Flow Pattern and Clinical Backgrounds in Patients with Angina Pectoris. Sugawara, Hirobumi; Kubota, Isao; Tomoike, Hitonobu // Angiology;Jan1998, Vol. 49 Issue 1, p25
Blood flow velocity of the brachial artery was measured noninvasively by ultrasound pulsed Doppler technique under the guidance of a B-mode ultrasound image in 56 patients with angina pectoris. There was no significant stenosis along the brachial artery on a B-mode image. The authors...
- A Twitch of the Heart. KAGAN, H. LEE // Discover;Nov2012, Vol. 33 Issue 9, p26
The author describes his attempts to diagnose a rare heart disease in a 31-year-old woman experiencing chronic chest pains. The patient collapsed with brachycardia during a cardiac stress test to detect evidence of coronary artery disease (CAD), but an angiogram revealed no CAD or heart attack....
