Off-pump anastomosis of the left internal mammary artery to the left anterior descending coronary artery through a left inferior J-hemisternotomy.

Since the 1990s, a large body of literature has been published regarding minimally invasive coronary artery bypass grafting. Varying techniques, complexity of the procedures and the necessity of patie...

Right Coronary Artery and Left Anterior Descending Artery Occlusion after Aortic Valve Replacement.

Coronary artery stenosis is a potentially life-threatening complication after heart valve surgery. The details are presented of a patient with unobstructed coronary arteries, who underwent routine aor...

The no-touch saphenous vein graft in elderly coronary bypass patients with multiple comorbidities is a promising conduit to substitute the left internal thoracic artery.

We investigated the patency rates of no-touch saphenous vein grafts anastomosed to the left anterior descending artery compared with the left internal thoracic artery. Further, we compared the patency...

Removal of a giant left ventricular thrombus after myocardial infarction due to dissection of left anterior descending artery.

Left ventricular thrombus is a frequent complication after myocardial infarction and is associated with high risk for arterial embolic complications. In addition to oral anticoagulation, surgical thro...

Coronary bypass surgery versus stenting in multivessel disease involving the proximal left anterior descending coronary artery.

In patients with multivessel disease and proximal left anterior descending artery (LAD) involvement, the best revascularisation strategy is still unclear. We assess outcomes after coronary artery bypa...

Coronary Bypass Surgery Trial: Complete Arterial Revascularization and Conventional Coronary Artery Surgery

This is a randomized, prospective European Multicenter Study comparing complete arterial revascularization of the coronary arteries using arterial graft material exclusively and “conven...

Relationship Between OCT Coronary Plaque Morphology and Clinical Outcome

The multicenter observational CLIMA registry has been conceived to explore correlation between OCT morphology of atherosclerotic plaques located in the left anterior descending artery with...

Efficacy of Automated Distal Vascular Anastomosis in Coronary Surgery: Phase II

This evaluation is designed to evaluate the feasibility of using an automated distal coronary anastomotic to facilitate grafting of the left internal mammary artery to the left anterio des...

Retrospective Review of Anesthetic Considerations for Pulmonary Artery Rehabilitation

Pulmonary artery rehabilitation procedure is done frequently in the catheterization suite for patients with pulmonary artery stenosis or small pulmonary arteries following surgical repair ...

Trial Comparing the Incidence of Steal Syndrome in the Two Types of anTEcubitaL Fossa Arteriovenous fistuLa AVF

Background: Arteriovenous fistula (AVF) is a form of vascular access for haemodialysis. An AVF is normally created at the level of the wrist, but occasionally it is created in the elbow w...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A congenital coronary vessel anomaly in which the left main CORONARY ARTERY originates from the PULMONARY ARTERY instead of from AORTA. The congenital heart defect typically results in coronary artery FISTULA; LEFT-SIDED HEART FAILURE and MITRAL VALVE INSUFFICIENCY during the first months of life.

Placement of a balloon-tipped catheter into the pulmonary artery through the antecubital, subclavian, and sometimes the femoral vein. It is used to measure pulmonary artery pressure and pulmonary artery wedge pressure which reflects left atrial pressure and left ventricular end-diastolic pressure. The catheter is threaded into the right atrium, the balloon is inflated and the catheter follows the blood flow through the tricuspid valve into the right ventricle and out into the pulmonary artery.

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.

The artery supplying nearly all the left half of the transverse colon, the whole of the descending colon, the sigmoid colon, and the greater part of the rectum. It is smaller than the superior mesenteric artery (MESENTERIC ARTERY, SUPERIOR) and arises from the aorta above its bifurcation into the common iliac arteries.

NECROSIS occurring in the ANTERIOR CEREBRAL ARTERY system, including branches such as Heubner's artery. These arteries supply blood to the medial and superior parts of the CEREBRAL HEMISPHERE, Infarction in the anterior cerebral artery usually results in sensory and motor impairment in the lower body.
