- Coronary artery narrowing in coronary heart disease: comparison of cineangiographic and necropsy findings. Arnett, Ernest N.; Isner, Jeffrey M.; Redwood, David R.; Kent, Kenneth M.; Baker, William P.; Ackerstein, Harold; Roberts, William C.; Arnett, E N; Isner, J M; Redwood, D R; Kent, K M; Baker, W P; Ackerstein, H; Roberts, W C // Annals of Internal Medicine;Sep79, Vol. 91 Issue 3, p350
Of 10 patients with fatal coronary heart disease undergoing coronary angiography 0 to 69 d (average, 21) before necropsy, the amount of narrowing in 61 coronary arteries observed angiographically (diameter reduction) during life by three angiographers was compared with that observed...
- 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,...
