We assessed the feasibility and safety of orbital atherectomy in patients with severely calcified aorto-ostial coronary artery lesions.
Anomalous aortic origin of a coronary artery (AAOCA) is a known cause of sudden death. Our hypothesis was that longer intramural length and smaller ostial diameter correlate with preoperative symptoms...
A 54-year-old woman presented with atypical chest pain, fever and malaise. She was immunosuppressed with three agents following a living-donor kidney transplant 1 year previously. Her native kidney ...
A case of Clostridium septicum aortitis is reported. The patient did not present any colon tumor. She died in spite of surgery and i.v. antibiotics. To date C. septicum has been reported only in about...
The term 'aortitis' refers to inflammation of the aorta. Aortitis is known to occur in a variety of vasculitides and connective tissue diseases, such as giant cell arteritis (GCA), Takayas...
Inflammatory aortitis probably represents a heterogeneous group, and the clinical experience accumulated over the last ten years, shared by the experts of the subject, is that the initial ...
Vertebral artery stenosis (VAS) decreases posterior brain perfusion, causing vertebrobasilar insufficiency (VBI). It is also an important embolic source to the posterior brain. The most fr...
The main objectives of this study are define frequency of plaque shift phenomenon and impact on flow dynamics in the side branch as assessed by intravascular ultrasound, and evaluate acute...
Background: Kawasaki disease (KD), most popular acquired heart disease in childhood, is characterized by diffuse vasculitis, especially on the middle-sized muscular arteries. IVIG and asp...
Cardiovascular manifestations of SYPHILIS, an infection of TREPONEMA PALLIDUM. In the late stage of syphilis, sometimes 20-30 years after the initial infection, damages are often seen in the blood vessels including the AORTA and the AORTIC VALVE. Clinical signs include syphilitic aortitis, aortic insufficiency, or aortic ANEURYSM.
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.
Malformations of CORONARY VESSELS, either arteries or veins. Included are anomalous origins of coronary arteries; ARTERIOVENOUS FISTULA; CORONARY ANEURYSM; MYOCARDIAL BRIDGING; and others.
Complete blockage of blood flow through one of the CORONARY ARTERIES, usually from CORONARY ATHEROSCLEROSIS.
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.
