Coronary artery calcium (CAC) has been shown in multiple populations to predict atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease. However, its predictive value in Asian-Americans is poorly described.
The purpose of this study was to compare Coronary Artery Disease Reporting and Data System (CAD-RADS) to traditional stenosis categories and the coronary artery calcium score (CACS) for predicting cardiovascular events in patients with stable chest pain and suspected coronary artery disease (CAD).
Previous studies have established that coronary artery disease is associated with excess inflammation. These studies have shown an elevation of both pro and anti-inflammatory cytokines in sufferers of coronary artery disease. There is increasing interest in the role played by the inflammasome Nod Like Receptor family pyrin domain containing 3 (NLRP3) in the aetiology of coronary artery disease. Increased severity of coronary artery disease correlates with higher levels of expression of NLRP3. Does NLRP3 pol...
This study compared risk discrimination for the prediction of coronary heart disease (CHD) and cardiovascular disease (CVD) deaths for the Pooled Cohort Equations (PCE), the MESA (Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis) Risk Score (with and without coronary artery calcium [CAC]), and of simple addition of CAC to the PCE.
Cardiovascular disease (CVD) and cancer are the two leading causes of death in smokers. Lung cancer screening is recommended in a large proportion of smokers. We examined the implication of coronary artery calcium (CAC) score (quantitative and qualitative) for cardiovascular disease (CVD), coronary heart disease (CHD), and cancer mortality risk prediction among current smokers.
Despite long-term antiplatelet therapy with aspirin, recurrent cardiovascular events remain common in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD).
Homocysteine (Hcy) is considered a risk factor for cardiovascular disease.
Since coronary artery disease (CAD) is a slow progressive disease, management and appropriate follow-up of patients with nonobstructive coronary artery disease (NOCAD) remains challenging, and there are no clear guidelines recommending a follow-up strategy and indications for repeat invasive coronary angiography (ICA). We investigated the predictors of the development of obstructive CAD in patients with previously diagnosed NOCAD.
We aimed to test the hypothesis that peripheral endothelial dysfunction induced by mental stress may predict cardiovascular events after acute coronary syndrome beyond traditional cardiovascular disease risk factors.
Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) may be performed in the same procedure as diagnostic coronary angiography (ad hoc PCI). This study aimed to evaluate current rates of ad hoc PCI use and associated risks of adverse outcomes in patients with stable coronary artery disease (CAD).
Interleukin-32 (IL-32) is a cytokine associated with higher risk of cardiovascular diseases in inflammatory environments. This study aimed to investigate the IL-32 levels in coronary artery disease (CAD) patients.
To evaluate the predictive accuracy of SYNTAX score (SS) I and II for detecting significant carotid artery stenosis (CAS) in patients with multivessel coronary artery disease undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) surgery.
Coronary angiography is the standard imaging method for determining the site, extent, and severity of coronary artery disease. Several publications have reported discordance between the degree of coronary artery stenosis determined from post-mortem histologic evaluation and coronary angiography. While the 2-dimensional limitations of coronary angiography are well established, the determination of coronary stenosis based on histologic evaluation of passively fixed samples is also associated with significant ...
Diabetes is a chronic disease that is responsible for a high rate of morbidity and mortality which can be attributed to atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease. Diabetes is heralded by prediabetes which not only indicates a higher risk of developing diabetes but also increases the burden of cardiovascular disease. The objective was to observe the effect of prediabetes on the severity of coronary artery disease in patients undergoing elective coronary angiography. Seven hundred and thirty-one patients wer...
Stable coronary artery disease (CAD) is known to have an increased risk of cardiovascular events. Serum albumin (Alb) is reported as a useful risk-stratification tool in cardiovascular diseases such as acute coronary syndrome or heart failure. However, the association between Alb and stable CAD is unclear. Thus, we aimed to investigate the prognostic significance of Alb in patients with stable CAD.
The aim of this study was to investigate the incidence and impact on mortality of repeat revascularization after index percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) or coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) for left main coronary artery disease (LMCAD).
The prognostic impact of coronary microvascular dysfunction after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) remains unclear in patients with stable coronary artery disease. This study sought to investigate the prognostic value of microvascular function measured immediately after PCI in patients with stable coronary artery disease.
To assess long-term safety and efficacy of the Xposition S self-apposing stent in the treatment of unprotected left main coronary artery (ULMCA) disease.
Recent prospective studies have identified distinct plasma ceramides as strong predictors of major adverse cardiovascular events in patients with established or suspected coronary artery disease (CAD). Currently, it is uncertain whether higher levels of distinct plasma ceramides are also associated with greater angiographic severity of coronary-artery stenoses in this patient population.
Risk stratification by assessment of coronary artery disease using coronary computed tomography angiography in diabetes and non-diabetes patients: a study from the Western Denmark Cardiac Computed Tomography Registry.
We examined whether severity of coronary artery disease (CAD) measured by coronary computed tomography angiography can be used to predict rates of myocardial infarction (MI) and death in patients with and without diabetes.
We describe a case of a 46-year-old man with calcified amorphous tumour in the right atrium and significant coronary artery disease. Preoperative investigations revealed a polypoid oscillating mass arising from the interatrial septum and attached to the tricuspid valve annulus. On-pump complete extirpation of the tumour with concomitant coronary artery bypass grafting was performed successfully. The patient's postoperative course was uneventful.
Although cardiovascular (CV) disease represents the leading cause of morbidity and mortality that increases with age, the best noninvasive test to identify older patients at risk for CV events remains unknown.
Artificial intelligence (AI) is increasing its role in diagnosis of patients with suspicious coronary artery disease. The aim of this manuscript is to develop a deep convolutional neural network (CNN) to classify coronary computed tomography angiography (CCTA) in the correct Coronary Artery Disease Reporting and Data System (CAD-RADS) category.
Patients with diabetes mellitus (DM) often exhibit a complex coronary anatomy, making coronary revascularization challenging. Coronary artery bypass grafting surgery (CABG) is currently considered the preferred revascularization method in patients with DM and multivessel disease. Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) has advanced with new stent generations having been developed in the recent years, but they have not yet been adequately compared against CABG in the population with DM. Comorbidities, such ...
Coronary artery anomalies are usually an incidental finding on coronary angiogram. Most of them are benign, although few of them are malignant which may cause sudden cardiac death. A 64-year-old diabetic, hypertensive man underwent coronary angiography for evaluation of exertional dyspnoea, and angina which revealed an anomalous left main coronary artery (LMCA) arising from right coronary sinus which was unduly long (79 mm) but free from any disease. To the best of our knowledge after extensive search in ...
