Lipoprotein(a) [Lp(a)] is considered a risk factor for cardiovascular disease. However, the role of Lp(a) in chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients is not well understood. The aim of this study was to evaluate the association between Lp(a) levels and the presence of coronary artery disease (CAD) and the severity of coronary artery stenosis (CAS) in patients with stage 3-5 CKD.
This article was published in the following journal.
Name: Coronary artery disease
Lipoprotein apheresis effectively lowers lipoprotein(a) [Lp(a)] and low-density lipoprotein (LDL) by approximately 60-70%. The rebound of LDL and Lp(a) particle concentrations following lipoprotein ap...
Uremia patients have impaired high-density lipoprotein (HDL) function and a high risk of coronary artery disease (CAD). Increased lipoprotein electronegativity can compromise lipoprotein function, but...
Elevated lipoprotein(a) [Lp(a)] is an independent risk factor for coronary artery disease (CAD). However, its role in real-world practice and implications for clinical care remains limited. Under inve...
A positive family history (FHx+) of coronary artery disease (CAD) is a well-known risk factor for the development of coronary pathology in first-degree relatives. We sought to evaluate the association...
High concentrations of low density lipoprotein (LDL) triglycerides have been associated with prevalent angiographic coronary artery disease. The present analysis was designed to investigate the associ...
Anabolic androgenic steroids (AASs) have been associated with coronary artery disease (CAD). The illicit use of these substances also leads to a remarkable decrease in high-density lipopro...
Coronary artery disease are 8 times more prevalent in patients with NAFLD then the general population and are being considered the most common cause of death. Cardiac CT is a reliable non ...
The purposes of this study is 1) to explore the association between facial characteristics and the increased risk of coronary artery diseases; 2) to evaluate the diagnostic efficacy of app...
Atherosclerosis is a chronic inflammatory condition, which is associated by the involvement of several pathological events, and alteration in the serum levels of pro- and anti-inflammatory...
This is an observational study among Latino patients who have coronary artery disease. The goal of the study is to determine the association between having depressive symptoms and the abi...
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.
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 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.
Pathological processes of CORONARY ARTERIES that may derive from a congenital abnormality, atherosclerotic, or non-atherosclerotic cause.
Radiology is the branch of medicine that studies imaging of the body; X-ray (basic, angiography, barium swallows), ultrasound, MRI, CT and PET. These imaging techniques can be used to diagnose, but also to treat a range of conditions, by allowing visuali...
Cardiology is a specialty of internal medicine. Cardiac electrophysiology : Study of the electrical properties and conduction diseases of the heart. Echocardiography : The use of ultrasound to study the mechanical function/physics of the h...
