Despite substantial scientific effort, the relationship between stroke after coronary artery bypass grafting and the use of the aortic no-touch off-pump technique (anOPCAB) remains incompletely understood. The present study aimed to define the effect of anOPCAB on the occurrence and time point of stroke.
Percutaneous coronary intervention for bifurcated anatomy, particularly at the proximal left coronary artery site, requires guide catheters (GC) of at least 6 french and preferably larger in diameter. We describe a new trans-radial approach more suitable for small artery size: the simultaneous use of both radial arteries for double cannulation of the LMCA with 5F GC: each GC will target either the LM/LAD or the LM/CX artery (or LM-LAD/LM-LAD-1st diagonal branch) stenoses. The technique successfully was appl...
To assess sex-specific differences regarding use of conventional risks and coronary artery calcification (CAC) to detect coronary artery disease (CAD) using coronary CT angiography (CCTA).
During percutaneous coronary intervention, "buddy-in-jail" technique is often used to facilitate stent delivery in complex coronary artery lesions. However, the safety and efficacy of this technique when used with different jailed wire and applied in different target vessel lesions remain elusive. The aim of this retrospective study was to analyze the effectiveness of "buddy-in-jail" technique in the tortuous and rigid lesions of both the common and neighboring coronary arteries. The effectiveness between h...
Most randomized controlled trials of off-pump versus on-pump coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) have included limited numbers of patients with preoperative renal failure. This study was performed to evaluate the association between the clinical benefit of the off-pump technique and chronic kidney disease stage.
This short tutorial video summarizes the surgical technique for conventional open harvesting of the great saphenous vein as a conduit for coronary artery bypass grafting.
To determine the efficacy of antegrade cardioplegia supplemented with venous graft perfusion in patients scheduled for coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG).
Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the major cause of mortality worldwide. Coronary artery disease (CAD) contributes to half of mortalities caused by CVD. The mainstay of management of CAD is medical therapy and revascularisation. Revascularisation can be achieved via coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) or percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). Peripheral arteries, such as the femoral or radial artery, provide the access to the coronary arteries to perform diagnostic or therapeutic (or both) procedures.
Endothelial dysfunction and coronary artery calcification (CAC) may represent two distinct and separate processes in the development of coronary atherosclerosis. However, the interaction between these factors in determining the development of coronary artery disease (CAD) is uncertain.
The concomitance between coronary artery disease and carotid artery disease is known and well documented. However, it is a fact that, despite the screening methods for these conditions and the advances in surgical treatment, little has been achieved in terms of reducing the risk of complications in the perioperative period. Publications are scarce, being mostly composed of reports or case series. There is little agreement on the best initial therapeutic approach (myocardial versus carotid revascularization)...
Real-life characteristics and outcomes of patients who undergo percutaneous coronary intervention versus coronary artery bypass grafting for left main coronary artery disease: data from the prospective Multi-vessel Coronary Artery Disease (MULTICAD) Israeli Registry.
Left main coronary artery involvement in patients with multivessel coronary artery disease provides a poor prognosis. Although the main strategy for revascularization is by coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG), percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) is being used with increased frequency.
Several updated meta-analyses comparing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) with coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) for left main coronary artery disease (LM CAD) have been published recently. However, the risk of false-positive results could be high in conventional updated meta-analyses due to repetitive testing of accumulating data. Therefore, we compared these treatment approaches via trial sequential analysis (TSA).
Purpose To retrospectively validate a first-pass analysis (FPA) technique that combines computed tomographic (CT) angiography and dynamic CT perfusion measurement into one low-dose examination. Materials and Methods The study was approved by the animal care committee. The FPA technique was retrospectively validated in six swine (mean weight, 37.3 kg ± 7.5 [standard deviation]) between April 2015 and October 2016. Four to five intermediate-severity stenoses were generated in the left anterior descending art...
Complete arterial revascularization using bilateral internal mammary artery in T-graft technique for multivessel coronary artery disease in on- or off-pump approach: does gender lose its historical impact on clinical outcome?
Higher rates of mortality and morbidity have been reported in women undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) compared with men. Different revascularization techniques (on-pump and off-pump) might influence this outcome.
The optimal strategy to treat bifurcation lesions (BFLs) in a percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for chronic total occlusions (CTOs) remains unknown.
The guidelines on the management of stable coronary artery disease (SCAD) recommend the use of coronary computed tomography angiography (CTA) in the process of diagnosing coronary artery disease in patients with low intermediate pre-test probability for SCAD. Particularly in cases where stress electrocardiogram or stress imaging provides unclear results, a computed tomographic examination can be considered as a reliable alternative to invasive coronary angiography. Due to its high negative predictive value,...
Off-pump direct coronary artery bypass grafting through a left anterior small thoracotomy is widely utilized for minimally invasive myocardial revascularization. More recently, a novel technique for transapical off-pump mitral valve repair with the NeoChord device is demonstrating its efficacy. This report describes a case of an 84-year-old male patient with coronary artery disease involving the left anterior descending coronary artery and acute severe mitral regurgitation secondary to posterior leaflet fla...
Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for coronary artery chronic total occlusion (CTO) is an important treatment to be used in conjunction with non-CTO PCI, coronary artery bypass grafting, and optimal medical therapy to achieve complete revascularization in patients with coronary artery disease.
We defined laboratory marker profiles typical of incomplete Kawasaki disease (iKD) during illness, especially with respect to the presence of a coronary artery abnormality such as coronary artery dilation or aneurysm.
The decision for coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) or percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in patients with multi-vessel coronary artery disease (mCAD) is currently made by a heart-team approach. Patients' preference is less well investigated.
The scientific advances in the past few years have enabled individualized prevention and treatment of diseases on the basis of genome-wide information. For example, dozens of genomic regions affecting the risk for coronary artery disease have been identified. Both Finnish and international longitudinal studies show that the risk assessment of coronary artery disease can be significantly improved if the estimate is based both on the newly discovered hereditary risk factors and the long-recognized traditional...
Bifurcation lesions may be encountered in approximately 15%-20% of percutaneous coronary interventions. A 2-stent approach is required in up to 30% of these procedures. We describe a novel technique based on a modification of TAP stenting, suitable for procedures where a 2-stent strategy is predetermined.
Coronary artery disease is common in patients with end-stage renal failure (ESRF). However, there is little evidence that revascularisation improves outcomes, compared with medical management. This study assessed survival and cardiovascular outcomes in patients with ESRF undergoing coronary angiography and then having coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery, percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) or medical management.
To examine the additional prognostic value of coronary CT angiography (CTA) over myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) in patients with suspected or known coronary artery disease.
