3-Year Follow-Up of Patients With Coronary Artery Spasm as Cause of Acute Coronary Syndrome The CASPAR (Coronary Artery Spasm in Patients With Acute Coronary Syndrome) Study Follow-Up.
Summary of "3-Year Follow-Up of Patients With Coronary Artery Spasm as Cause of Acute Coronary Syndrome The CASPAR (Coronary Artery Spasm in Patients With Acute Coronary Syndrome) Study Follow-Up."
We sought to determine the prognosis of patients with acute coronary syndrome without culprit lesion and proof of coronary spasm during 3 years of follow-up.

Internal Mammary-coronary Artery Anastomosis
Direct myocardial revascularization in which the internal mammary artery is anastomosed to the right coronary artery, circumflex artery, or anterior descending coronary artery. The internal mammary artery is the most frequent choice, especially for a single graft, for coronary artery bypass surgery.
Coronary Artery Bypass
Surgical therapy of ischemic coronary artery disease achieved by grafting a section of saphenous vein, internal mammary artery, or other substitute between the aorta and the obstructed coronary artery distal to the obstructive lesion.
Coronary-subclavian Steal Syndrome
A complication of INTERNAL MAMMARY-CORONARY ARTERY ANASTOMOSIS whereby an occlusion or stenosis of the proximal SUBCLAVIAN ARTERY causes a reversal of the blood flow away from the CORONARY CIRCULATION, through the grafted INTERNAL MAMMARY ARTERY (internal thoracic artery), and back to the distal subclavian distribution.
Spasm of the large- or medium-sized coronary arteries.
Abdominal artery that follows the curvature of the stomach. The right gastroepiploic artery is frequently used in CORONARY ARTERY BYPASS GRAFTING; MYOCARDIAL REVASCULARIZATION, and other vascular reconstruction.
Coronary artery spasm after coronary artery bypass grafting is a rare cause of acute myocardial infarction. A 68-year-old man who successfully tolerated off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting had a...
Patients with coronary spasm generally have a good prognosis, although it can result in sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) and syncope. We hypothesized that the nature of coronary spasm triggering lethal arr...
BACKGROUND: This study compared the 10-year follow-up of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), coronary artery surgery (CABG), and medical treatment (MT) in patients with multivessel coronary arte...
The purpose of this prospective study was to investigate the association between the severity of coronary atherosclerosis in angiography and the risk of stroke in symptomatic coronary artery disease (...
BACKGROUND: Reverse redistribution (RR) is one of the features on myocardial perfusion scintigraphy (MPS) in patients with coronary artery spasm (CAS). This study was aimed to explore the mechanism of...
In patients with chest pain and/or shortness of breath coronary artery disease (CAD) is suspected depending on the pattern of symptoms and the electrocardiogram (ECG). Coronary angiography...
The utilization of everolimus-eluting coronary stents in a coronary artery diseases is effective in reducing both repeat revascularization and major adverse cardiac events within two year...
The purpose of this study is to compare 5-year mortality rates in diabetic individuals with multivessel coronary artery disease (CAD) who undergo either coronary artery bypass grafting (CA...
The investigators are hoping to discover the cause of chest pain in patients with a normal coronary arteriogram. For patients with chest pain coronary angiography is the standard method by...
Bypass surgery is often required to treat severe coronary heart disease. Either arteries or veins can be used as bypass grafts. We wish to compare the long-term durability of the saphenou...
