Arnett, Ernest N.; Isner, Jeffrey M.; Redwood, David R.; Kent, Kenneth M.; Baker, William P.; Ackerstein, Harold; Roberts, William C. // Annals of Internal Medicine;Sep79, Vol. 91 Issue 3, p350
Presents a study which compared the amount of narrowing in coronary arteries during life by angiographers, among patients with fatal coronary heart disease undergoing coronary angiography before necropsy, and that observed histologically at necropsy. Problem in interpretation of a coronary...
- The Relation of Serum Bilirubin Level With Coronary Artery Disease Based on Angiographic Findings. Taban Sadeghi, Mohammadreza; Golmohamadi, Ali; Parvizi, Rezayat; Aghdam, Naser Kezerlou; Separham, Ahmad; Hosnavi, Zahra // Crescent Journal of Medical & Biological Sciences;Oct2015, Vol. 2 Issue 4, p130
Objective: Lipid oxidation and generation of free radicals are important factors contributing to the formation of atherosclerotic plaque. Bilirubin is supposed to play a protective role against atherosclerosis, coronary artery diseases (CAD) and inflammation for its strong antioxidant property....
- 'Recovery Only' ST-Segment Depression and the Predictive Accuracy of the Exercise Test. Lachterman, Bruce; Lehmann, Kenneth G.; Abrahamson, David; Froelicher, Victor F. // Annals of Internal Medicine;1/1/90, Vol. 112 Issue 1, p11
Deals with a study which determined whether ST-segment depression limited to the recovery period increased the diagnostic yield of the exercise test among patients who have had coronary angiography. Methods; Results; Discussion and conclusion.
- A study of angiographic severity in patients with coronary artery disease and hyperuricemia. Pramanik, Subhraprakash; Mandal, Koushik; Dey, Arpan Kumar; Mandal, Pijush Kanti; Das, Shovan Kumar; Momin, Tanmoy W.; Mitra, Mrinmoy; Mondal, Monojit; Dutta, Satyendra Nath // Asian Journal of Medical Sciences;Mar/Apr2016, Vol. 7 Issue 2, p1
Backgrounds: Hyperuricemia has not yet been established as cardiovascular risk factor. We aimed to study the angiographic severity in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) and hyperuricemia. Materials and Methods: In this observational cross-sectional study we measured serum uric acid...
- Dipyridamole and exercise SPET provide different estimates of myocardial ischaemic areas: role of the severity of coronary stenoses and of the increase in heart rate during exercise. David, Nicolas; Marie, Pierre Y.; Angioi, Micha�l; Rodriguez, Rosa M.; Hassan, Nathalie; Olivier, Pierre; Grentzinger, Alain; Karcher, Gilles; Claudon, Olivier; Juilli�re, Yves; Danchin, Nicolas; Bertrand, Alain // European Journal of Nuclear Medicine;2000, Vol. 27 Issue 7, p788
Abstract. In patients unable to perform a maximal exercise test, dipyridamole single-photon emission tomography (SPET) has a higher capacity than exercise SPET to detect coronary artery disease (CAD). However, in patients with myocardial ischaemia who are able to perform a maximal exercise test,...
