Summary of "Epicardial anthracosis in a patient undergoing coronary artery bypass graft surgery."

Anthracosis is an occupational disease which is caused by long-term inhalation of coal and rock dust. We present a case of epicardial anthracosis in a patient who underwent coronary artery bypass graft surgery for coronary artery disease. This is the first case of anthracosis related to the heart in the literature to the best of our knowledge. This case report emphasizes the systemic dissemination of inorganic particles such as carbon in the human body.

Mid-term outcomes of simultaneous coronary artery bypass graft surgery and septal myectomy in patients with hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy: A case-controlled study.

The mid-term outcome of patients with hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy (HOCM) undergoing coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) is unclear.

Current mechanisms of low graft flow and conduit choice for the right coronary artery based on the severity of native coronary stenosis and myocardial flow demand.

We investigated current mechanisms causing low graft flow (LGF) following coronary artery bypass grafting, particularly for the right coronary artery (RCA).

Perioperative diltiazem or nitroglycerin in on-pump coronary artery bypass: A systematic review and network meta-analysis.

Rationale and design of a multicenter randomized trial to compare the graft patency between no-touch vein harvesting technique and conventional approach in coronary artery bypass graft surgery.

Vein graft failure is a crucial challenge in coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery. Previous studies have suggested a patency benefit of the No-Touch vein harvesting technique, but only with sma...

Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting: A Clinical Overview.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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 surgery on a beating HEART without a CARDIOPULMONARY BYPASS (diverting the flow of blood from the heart and lungs through an oxygenator).

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.

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.

Microsurgical revascularization to improve intracranial circulation. It usually involves joining the extracranial circulation to the intracranial circulation but may include extracranial revascularization (e.g., subclavian-vertebral artery bypass, subclavian-external carotid artery bypass). It is performed by joining two arteries (direct anastomosis or use of graft) or by free autologous transplantation of highly vascularized tissue to the surface of the brain.
