Coronary endarterectomy has become a safe procedure.In this study, we report a case that we applied a successful endarterectomy for diffuse right coronary artery disease.
- Periostin and Myocardial Repair, Regeneration, and Recovery. Dorn, Gerald W. // New England Journal of Medicine;10/11/2007, Vol. 357 Issue 15, p1552
The author discusses the fact that the practical limits of acute revascularization therapy for myocardial infarction may have been reached. The article focuses on a study by B. Kuhn and others that found that periostin induced cardiomyocyte proliferation and promoted cardiac repair. He mentions...
- Different Treatment Strategies for Patients with Multivessel Coronary Disease and High SYNTAX Score. Xia, Fei; Jia, Dalin; Han, Yang; Wang, Shaojun; Wang, Xin // Cell Biochemistry & Biophysics;Dec2015, Vol. 73 Issue 3, p769
We sought to evaluate the prognosis of different treatment strategies on patients with multivessel coronary disease and high SYNTAX score. 171 patients with multivessel coronary disease and SYNTAX score Îµ33, who underwent coronary angiography between July 2009 and July 2010 at our hospital...
- Percutaneous Coronary Intervention Rates and Associated Independent Predictors for Progression of Nontarget Lesions in Patients With Diabetes Mellitus After Drug-Eluting Stent Implantation. Vasiliadis, Ioannis; Christophides, Theodoros; Androulakis, Emmanuel; Kolovou, Genovefa // Angiology;Jan2016, Vol. 67 Issue 1, p10
The author offers information on Complete Versus culprit-Lesion only PRimary Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI) Trial (CvLPRIT), presented at the European Society of Cardiology Conference in August 2015 which shows that patient with primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for...
- Repeat intervention after invasive treatment of coronary arteries. Loponen, Pertti; Korpilahti, Kari; Luther, Michael; Huhtala, Heini; Tarkka, Matti R. // European Journal of Cardio-Thoracic Surgery;Jan2009, Vol. 35 Issue 1, p43
Abstract: Objective: Patients who undergo successful revascularisation either with coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) or with percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) may subsequently require repeat invasive procedures. Methods: A cohort of 662 coronary artery diseased (CAD) patients was...
- Use and Overuse of Angiography and Revascularization for Acute Coronary Syndromes. Lange, Richard A.; Hillis, L. David // New England Journal of Medicine;06/18/98, Vol. 338 Issue 25, p1838
Editorial. Questions the overuse of angiography and revascularization as treatments for acute coronary syndromes. Factors influencing the trend of these procedures.
- Revascularisation for patients with stable coronary artery disease: CABG and contemporary PCI can both reduce mortality. Ziada, Khaled; Moliterno, David J. // BMJ: British Medical Journal;7/5/2014, Vol. 348 Issue 7965, pg4099
The author reflects on the evidence that percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI) reduce the risk of myocardial infarction and death in patients with acute coronary syndromes but these benefits have not been established for patients with stable coronary artery disease. Topics discussed include...
- Transmyocardial revascularization. Hayden, Ann Marie; Moore, Kathleen // RN;May98, Vol. 61 Issue 5, p44
Presents information on the transmyocardial revascularization (TMR) technique to be used in the treatment of coronary artery disease. In-depth at the TMR technique; Criteria for treatment with the TMR technique; Information on a study involving TMR patients.
- A Comparison of Bare-Metal and Drug-Eluting Stents for Off-Label Indications. Marroquin, Oscar C.; Selzer, Faith; Mulukutla, Suresh R.; Williams, David O.; Vlachos, Helen A.; Wilensky, Robert L.; Tanguay, Jean-Fran�ois; Holper, Elizabeth M.; Abbott, J. Dawn; Lee, Joon S.; Smith, Conrad; Anderson, William D.; Kelsey, Sheryl F.; Kip, Kevin E. // New England Journal of Medicine;1/24/2008, Vol. 358 Issue 4, p342
Background: Recent reports suggest that off-label use of drug-eluting stents is associated with an increased incidence of adverse events. Whether the use of bare-metal stents would yield different results is unknown. Methods: We analyzed data from 6551 patients in the National Heart, Lung, and...
