Saphenous vein (SV) is a common graft being used in coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). Conventional (CON), intermediate (I), and no-touch (NT) are the most common harvesting techniques of SV for CABG. The aim of this study is to systematically review the NT versus CON and I techniques in harvesting SV for CABG. Twelve databases were searched for randomized controlled trials comparing the CON, I, and NT techniques in harvesting SV for CABG. Twelve reports of six RCTs were included. Our meta-analysis sho...
The no-touch technique of saphenous vein harvesting involves harvesting the vein as a pedicled graft, together with its surrounding adipose tissue, while avoiding direct contact and excessive high-pressure expansion. This technique offers the possibility of comparable long-term graft patency to that of an internal mammary artery graft. However, the wound complications using the no-touch technique can be more significant than those using a conventional skeletonized technique. To solve the problem of leg woun...
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.
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.
Conventional coronary artery disease (CAD) is the leading cause of morbidity and mortality in the general population. In recent years, multiple CAD promising risk factors have been reported and used for risk stratification. Lipoprotein(a) [LPA] concentration in plasma was shown associated with CAD risk and LPA genetic variants in different ethnic groups remains less clear.
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.
Coronary computed tomography (CT) angiography is a noninvasive method for visualizing coronary artery disease. However, coronary CT angiography is limited in assessment of stenosis severity by the partial volume effect and calcification. Therefore, an accurate method for assessment of stenosis severity is needed. A 10 cm diameter cylindrical Lucite phantom with holes in the range of 0.4-4.5 mm diameter was fitted in a chest phantom. The holes were filled with an iodine solution of 8 mg/mL. To simulate co...
Our goal was to compare the observed and the expected rates of postoperative cerebrovascular accidents (CVA) in a large cohort of consecutive patients undergoing off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) using the ∏-circuit as a no-touch technique.
To evaluate the sequential changes of hemodynamic and metabolic parameters in patients who underwent aorta no-touch off-pump coronary artery bypass surgery (OPCAB).
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.
Decompressive hemicraniectomy (DH) is the mainstay of treatment for malignant middle cerebral artery infarction (MMI). Although this operation significantly reduces mortality and improves functional outcomes, the conventional technique involves a reverse question mark incision starting anterior to the tragus that can injure the scalp's major blood supply, the superficial temporal artery (STA), which increases the risk of postoperative complications.
The primary cause of death worldwide is heart disease and the most common type of heart disease is coronary artery disease. While coronary artery disease is treated with medications, it responds to lifestyle interventions. A low-fat plant-based diet was designed for reversing coronary artery disease and it is effective in reversing the disease. It has not been tested, however, as far as we know, whether diets with customary levels of fat can also reverse coronary artery disease. Nevertheless, evidence is ac...
Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death worldwide and describes many heart and vessel disorders. One of these disorders, coronary artery disease (CAD), occurs because of narrowed or blocked coronary arteries. Computed tomography (CT) is used to diagnose CAD because it displays coronary artery stenosis and calcified plaques in the coronary arteries. Coronary CT angiography visualizes coronary arteries for narrowing, and coronary artery calcium scoring visualizes calcium-containing plaques in the...
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.
To investigate the optimized categorization algorithm of coronary artery calcification score (CACS) for more accurate risk assessment on non-gated chest low-dose CT (LDCT) screening using iterative model reconstruction (IMR) technique.
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.
It is unclear whether mental stress-induced myocardial ischemia (MSIMI) is related to obstructive coronary artery disease (CAD). We examined this question and contrasted results with ischemia induced by conventional stress testing (CSIMI). Because women are more susceptible to ischemia without coronary obstruction than men, we examined sex differences.
Cardiovascular diseases are the main cause of death worldwide, with coronary artery disease (CAD) being the predominant underlying etiology. Coronary angiography (CA) is the current invasive method used for CAD diagnosis, as well as for defining the coronary interventional treatment strategy. However, CA offers sometimes-poor accuracy in estimating atherosclerotic plaque volume, morphology and degree of stenosis severity. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is an intracoronary imaging technique, developed in...
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).
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).
