Coronary revascularization for coronary artery disease dates to the introduction of coronary bypass surgery by Favaloro in 1967 and coronary angioplasty by Gruentzig in 1977 and first published in 1968 and 1978, respectively. There have been many technical improvements over the ensuing 5 decades, studied in clinical trials. This paper reviews the history of coronary revascularization, the development of optimal medical therapy, and points the way to the future of stable coronary artery disease management.
Comparative outcomes of coronary-artery bypass grafting (CABG) and percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for left main coronary artery (LMCA) disease were previously reported. However, data on very long-term (>10 years) outcomes are limited.
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 shear stress. However, the relationship between the left main coronary artery (LM)-LAD angle and LAD stenosis has not been investigated. Therefore, we aimed to evaluate the associations between the LM-LAD and LAD-LCX angles and LAD stenosis.
Coronary computed tomography angiography (CTA) has emerged as a non-invasive diagnostic method for patients with suspected coronary artery disease, but its usefulness in patients with complex coronary artery disease remains to be investigated. The present study sought to determine the agreement between separate heart teams on treatment decision-making based on either coronary CTA or conventional angiography.
Gut microbiota dysbiosis has been considered to be an important risk factor that contributes to coronary artery disease, but limited evidence is known about the involvement of gut microbiota in the disease. Our study aimed to characterize the dysbiosis signatures of gut microbiota in coronary artery disease.
Coronary artery disease and aortic stenosis frequently coexist. The pathophysiology of both conditions is similar where atherosclerosis is the hallmark feature. Risk factors for aortic stenosis are also similar for coronary artery disease. The standard therapy in the past decades has been coronary artery bypass grafting and aortic valve replacement; however, with the introduction of transcatheter aortic valve implantation their management is probably going to shift towards a percutaneous strategy.
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 between FHx+ of CAD and clinical outcomes in patients presenting with a first ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI).
Coronary artery disease is common in patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) on hemodialysis. ESRD patients are prone to atherosclerosis and are likely to present with advanced CAD requiring coronary artery bypass graft surgery (CABG) or percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI).
Despite advance in off-pump coronary artery bypass (OPCAB) grafting, there are large debating issues regarding survival benefit between OPCAB and on-pump coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). The aim of this study is to address appropriateness of OPCAB approach in patients with ischemic heart disease having multiple vessels using South Korea national cohort data.
COPD is associated with cardiovascular disease (CVD), and coronary artery calcification (CAC) provides additional prognostic information. With increasing use of non-gated CT scans in clinical practice, we hypothesized that the visual Weston CAC score would perform as well as Agatston score in predicting prevalent and incident coronary artery (CAD) and CVD in COPD.
Anger control was significantly lower in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD), regardless of traditionally known risk factors, occurrence of prior events or other anger aspects in a previous study of our research group.
Tendon xanthomas are accumulations of collagen and macrophages, which contain cholesterol esters and a marker of high risk for coronary artery disease (CAD).
Despite evidence of high heritability, monogenic disorders are identified in a minor fraction of individuals with early-onset coronary artery disease (EOCAD). We hypothesized that some individuals with EOCAD carry a high number of common genetic risk variants, with a combined effect similar to Mendelian forms of coronary artery disease, such as familial hypercholesterolemia.
Optimal surgical approach for the treatment of resectable lung cancer accompanied by coronary artery disease (CAD) remains a contentious issue. In this study, we present our cases that were operated simultaneously for concurrent lung cancer and CAD.
Hypertension is associated with increased clinical and subclinical coronary artery disease (CAD); however, the relationship between blood pressure and coronary plaque volume is unclear. We examined the effect of systolic blood pressure (SBP) and diastolic blood pressure (DBP) on coronary artery plaque volume.
Cystatin C, an endogenous indicator for kidney function, may be also an original indicator for coron Background and Aim: Cystatin C, an endogenous indicator for kidney function, may be also an original indicator for coronary atherosclerosis. In the current study, we intended to assess its role in establishing the existence of coronary artery disease. We also attempted to present the best cut off point for Cystatin C to discriminate coronary disease from normal coronary condition.
Coronary artery ectasia describes a local or diffuse dilatation of the epicardial coronary arteries. This review summarizes the molecular and cellular mechanisms involved in the pathogenesis of coronary artery ectasia. Better identification of the pathophysiologic steps will shed light into the clinical significance and may have direct implications for the management strategies of this disease. Additionally, understanding the underlying etiology may help to improve treatment modalities specific to coronary ...
While a plethora of biomarkers have been shown to be associated with coronary artery disease, studies assessing biomarkers in coronary microvascular dysfunction (CMD) are few. We investigated associations between cardiovascular protein biomarkers and non-endothelium dependent CMD assessed by positron emission tomography (PET).
Bilateral congenital coronary artery fistulae complicated with a giant coronary artery aneurysm is a very rare condition. A coronary artery aneurysm is a coronary artery dilatation that exceeds the diameter of normal adjacent segments or the diameter of the patient's largest coronary vessel by 1.5 times. The complications associated with a coronary artery aneurysm include thrombosis, embolization, rupture, vasospasm, congestive heart failure and infectious endocarditis. We report on a 63-year-old woman pres...
We aimed to improve the understanding of potential associations between commonly available hematological biomarkers and the coronary artery calcification (CAC) score, which may help unravel the pathophysiology of coronary calcifications and subclinical coronary artery disease.
The aim of this study was to evaluate the F-sodium fluoride (F-NaF) coronary uptake compared to coronary intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) in patients with symptomatic coronary artery disease.
Among patients with coronary artery disease (CAD), around 25% have multisite artery disease (MSAD). Patients with CAD and MSAD are at higher risk of peri-operative and long-term cardiovascular events. Whether off-pump coronary bypass grafting (CABG) can improve their prognosis is unknown.We aimed to assess the benefits of off- vs. on-pump cardiac surgery in patients undergoing CABG, according to coexistence of extra-cardiac artery disease.
