Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
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.
Abnormal balloon- or sac-like dilatation in the wall of CORONARY VESSELS. Most coronary aneurysms are due to CORONARY ATHEROSCLEROSIS, and the rest are due to inflammatory diseases, such as KAWASAKI DISEASE.
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.
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 aneurysms are uncommon, especially in young patients. Most aneurysms in young patients are congenital, traumatic or due to Kawasaki disease. Giant coronary aneurysms warrant surgical m...
Abstract Coronary artery aneurysms larger than 5 cm are exceedingly rare, and a standard treatment for them is lacking. We report two cases of giant right coronary artery aneurysms successfully tre...
Information about acute coronary syndrome caused by Kawasaki disease-related coronary artery lesions in adults is sketchy. We reviewed the clinical features of 50 adult patients who had an acute coron...
A 77-year-old patient suffering from a giant right coronary artery aneurysm with coronary arteriovenous fistula was admitted to our hospital. The fistula could not be documented preoperatively by comp...
Aims: A coronary aneurysm is one of the most frequent complications of Kawasaki disease, and yet there is little information concerning the haemodynamic abnormality influenced by the existence of a co...
To test the efficacy of intravenous gamma globulin (IVGG) in preventing coronary artery aneurysms in children with Kawasaki Syndrome.
The present study relates to a new approach to coronary artery and coronary artery by-pass graft imaging, and more particularly to computed tomographic angiography following an aortic root...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether coronary artery CT scanning or nuclear stress testing is better at diagnosing chest pain patients with known coronary artery disease to se...
The overall goal of this study is to determine if non-invasive imaging with state of the art CT coronary angiography can be used to screen for coronary artery disease in high risk patients...
The primary objective of this study is to analyze the clinical value of a therapeutic management strategy based on the results of coronary CT angiography and functional MRI. The clinical v...
