Name: Radiographics : a review publication of the Radiological Society of North America, Inc
The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence and natural history of coronary ostial aneurysms in Marfan patients with aortic root replacement.
Editor's Note.-RadioGraphics continues to publish radiologic-pathologic case material selected from the American Institute for Radiologic Pathology (AIRP) "best case" presentations. The AIRP conducts ...
: A 54-year-old woman with a history of stage IV nonsmall-cell lung cancer, on treatment with chemiotherapy was hospitalized for acute coronary syndrome. Coronary angiography showed a tight stenosis o...
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...
BACKGROUD: Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) is increasingly used to treat unprotected left main coronary artery stenosis. Protected LM PCI is considered standard of care in most c...
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.
