Clinical usefulness of the angle between left main coronary artery and left anterior descending coronary artery for the evaluation of obstructive coronary artery disease.

A wider angle between the left anterior descending coronary artery (LAD) and left circumflex coronary artery (LCX) has been suggested to induce plaque formation in the arterial system via changes in s...

Fetal Echocardiographic Measures to Improve the Prenatal Diagnosis of Coarctation of the Aorta.

The objective of this study is to identify fetal echocardiographic measures that predict postnatal coarctation of the aorta (CoA). A retrospective review of patients from 2013 to 2017 identified 13 ca...

Utilization of Coronary Artery to Aorta for the Early Detection of Kawasaki Disease.

Timely diagnosis of coronary involvement is paramount in Kawasaki disease (KD) as it can be associated with long-term morbidity. However, echocardiographic measurements of coronary artery dilation in ...

The role of echocardiography in anomalous origin of coronary artery from pulmonary artery (ALCAPA): Simple tool for a complex diagnosis.

Anomalous origin of coronary artery from pulmonary artery (ALCAPA) is a rare coronary anomaly usually presenting in the first year of life. Adult presentation suggests a wide range of differential dia...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

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.

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.

A clinically significant reduction in blood supply to the BRAIN STEM and CEREBELLUM (i.e., VERTEBROBASILAR INSUFFICIENCY) resulting from reversal of blood flow through the VERTEBRAL ARTERY from occlusion or stenosis of the proximal subclavian or brachiocephalic artery. Common symptoms include VERTIGO; SYNCOPE; and INTERMITTENT CLAUDICATION of the involved upper extremity. Subclavian steal may also occur in asymptomatic individuals. (From J Cardiovasc Surg 1994;35(1):11-4; Acta Neurol Scand 1994;90(3):174-8)

Narrowing or constriction of a coronary artery.
