- Our surgical approach to the high risk left main coronary artery stenosis in a case who received irradiation due to malignancies of two separate systems. Yetkin, Ufuk; Sahin, Aykut; Ozcem, Barcin; Bademci, Mehmet; Yurekli, Ismail; Gurbuz, Ali // Internet Journal of Oncology;2010, Vol. 7 Issue 1, p4
Radiation-induced heart disease is a well-known complication but rare entity.In this study we present our surgical approach to the high risk left main coronary artery stenosis in a case who received irradiation due to malignancies of two separate systems.Surgical revascularization of the...
- Syndrome of Coronary Artery Spasm of Normal Coronary Arteries. Clinical and Angiographic Features. Castelló, Ramón; Algería, Eduardo; Merino, Alvaro; Soria, Federico; Martinez-Caro, Diego // Angiology;Jan1988 Part 1, Vol. 39 Issue 1, p8
To define the clinical and angiographic features of the syndrome of spasm of angiographically normal coronary arteries, 77 patients with spasm and fixed coronary stenosis equal to or greater than 50% (group A) were compared with 35 patients with spasm and normal or minimally diseased coronary...
- Keeping up with the beat. Lutz, Brobson // New Orleans Magazine;Feb2004, Vol. 38 Issue 5, p52

- A Study on Left Atrial Transport Function. Nishigaki, Kazuhiko; Arakawa, Michio; Miwa, Hiroshi; Kagawa, Kensaku; Noda, Toshiyuki; Ito, Yoshimi // Angiology;Nov1994, Vol. 45 Issue 11, p953
Left atrial (LA) storage fraction is defined as the ratio of storage volume of the left atrium (LA) during ventricular systole to left ventricular (LV) stroke volume. To test their hypothesis that left atrial (LA) storage fraction is increased to compensate for impaired LV filling in the heart...
- Coronary stents: in these days of climate change should all stents wear coats? Lowe, R.; Menown, I. B. A.; Nogarecla, G.; Penn, I. M. // Heart;Jun2005 Supplement 3, Vol. 91, piii20
The article reports that the most significant advancement in percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) since the introduction of angioplasty in 1978 has been the routine coronary stenting of de novo lesions. The resultant improvement in short term procedural outcome and reduced restenosis has...
- The Benefits of Off-Pump Coronary Bypass A Reality or an Illusion? Livesay, James J. // Texas Heart Institute Journal;2003, Vol. 30 Issue 4, p258
Focuses on an article which compares the efficacy of coronary artery bypass and off-pump coronary bypass (OPCAB). Impact of OPCAB; Discussion on the safety and success of coronary artery bypass.
- Left main coronary artery stenosis no longer a risk factor for early and late death after coronary artery bypass surgery â€” an experience covering three decades. Jönsson, Anders; Hammar, Niklas; Nordquist, Tobias; Ivert, Torbjörn // European Journal of Cardio-Thoracic Surgery;Aug2006, Vol. 30 Issue 2, p311
Abstract: Objective: To analyse early and late mortality after coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) in patients with and without left main coronary artery (LMCA) stenosis during the 30-year period 1970â€“1999. Methods: A total of 1888 of 10,647 patients (18%) who underwent a first...
- Iron and peripheral arterial disease: revisiting the iron hypothesis in a different light. Ramakrishna, Gautam; Rooke, Thom W.; Cooper, Leslie T. // Vascular Medicine;2003, Vol. 8 Issue 3, p203
The relationship between iron status and atherosclerosis has long been a topic of debate in the literature. Despite more than 25 years of research, there is no consensus regarding a causal relationship. To date, the vast majority of studies have focused on iron burden with respect to a...
- Anomalous Origin of the Right Coronary Artery Above the Left Posterior Sinus of Valsalva Associated with a Normal Aortic Valve. Chadow, Hal; Tak Kwan; Huber, Michael; Feit, Alan // Angiology;Nov1994, Vol. 45 Issue 11, p963
This case report describes a right coronary artery arising from the ascending aorta, above the left posterior sinus. Unlike previously reported cases, this was associated with a normal aortic valve. The clinical significance and approach during angiography are discussed.
