Coronary artery disease (CAD) is a major cause of death and disability in developed countries. Although coronary artery disease mortality rates worldwide have declined over the past decades, CAD remains responsible for about one third or more of all deaths in individuals over the age of 35 years.
Various methods of treatment have been proposed including medical therapy, catheter-based Author: Allan Mattia, Frank Manetta. There is a high mortality rate with left main coronary artery disease in patients treated medically.
Recently, a prospective randomized study of patients with left main coronary artery occlusive disease assessing surgical versus medical therapy has been by: Coronary Artery Disease Assessment, Surgery, Prevention. Coronary artery atherosclerosis is the most common cardiac pathology, which is the primary cause of cardiac mortality.
Coronary artery stenosis usually involves the proximal portion of the larger epicardial coronary arteries, but diffuse coronary artery disease is also not rare. Techniques and technology for treating coronary artery disease (CAD) have evolved significantly over the past 50 years.
Although there are cases in which the best treatment approach (medical. Contribution To Literature: The STICH trial showed that in patients with ischemic cardiomyopathy, coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) + medical therapy resulted in higher mortality at 30 days, but with a significant improvement in long-term mortality (out to 10 years) compared with medical therapy alone.
There is no doubt that for patients with surgical triple-vessel coronary disease and a severely diseased left main artery, CABG appears to be preferable. Despite constant advances in surgical and interventional therapy of coronary artery disease, there remains a group of patients who are not amenable to these traditional treatment : Xiong Gu-Cheng, Yang Yu, Chuan Wang.
Coronary Heart Disease: Clinical, Pathological, Imaging, and Molecular Profiles presents a comprehensive picture of ischemic heart disease for practitioners, students, and investigators dealing with the varied facets of this complex subject. Individual chapters introduce the anatomy of the coronary blood vessels and cardiac development, while others consider current imaging modalities utilized.

Cardiac Procedures and Surgeries If you've had a heart attack, you may have already had certain procedures to help you survive your heart attack and diagnose your condition.
For example, many heart attack patients have undergone thrombolysis, a procedure that involves injecting a clot-dissolving agent to restore blood flow in a coronary artery.
Carotid Artery Stenosis. Carotid artery stenosis is a delayed complication of neck irradiation (radiation arteritis) Although stenosis following prior radiation is often seen at the carotid bifurcation, patients with prior neck radiation frequently have lesions that are high (at or above the C2 vertebra) or low (at or below the level of the clavicle).
Coronary artery disease is slowly engulfing the lives of people across all ages and walks of life. Is there any way to deal this menace apart from angioplasty and Bypass surgery. Yes, alternative therapies are very much available and the good news is that it is absolutely non-invasive and safe.
Coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) in radiation-induced CAD is known to have worse outcomes compared with the general population. Mortality rates after any cardiac surgery are considerably higher regardless of the type of surgery (45 vs. 72%, p. CORONARY ARTERY DISEASE • CAD is narrowing or obstruction of one or more coronary arteries because of atherosclerosis which is the accumulation of lipid- containing plaque in the arteries • that decreases perfusion to myocardial tissue and inadequate myocardial oxygen supply • which leads to hypertension, infarction, arrhythmias, heart.
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.
Abstract. The concept of surgical myocardial revascularization was initially explored by Beck , who observed large collateral vessels between the pericardium and the epicardium in persons who had had pericarditis in association with coronary obstructive by: 1.

increased risk associated with the patient's gender. increased risk. This paper is intended to give an overview of coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG), including the implications of the National Service Framework for Coronary Heart Disease (NSF) (DoH, ).
It will discuss why surgery is chosen, the purpose of surgical revascularisation, the surgical procedure and the principles of pre- and postoperative.
The foundation of treatment for heart failure with reduced ejection fraction is guideline-directed medical treatment. However, surgical revascularisation offers improved survival and quality of life for patients with more extensive coronary disease and the greatest degree of left ventricular systolic dysfunction and : John Pepper.
Coronary artery disease (CAD) is the most common cause of mortality in the developed world. It results from the collision of ancient genes with modern lifestyles: a hunter–gatherer lifestyle – with high daily energy expenditure and rare kills – favors a tendency to eat large quantities of high-calorie food when it is available.
Such predispositions sit uneasily in a modern world with Author: Euan A Ashley, Josef Niebauer. In the work-up of suspected or known coronary artery disease (CAD), cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) is an established technique and it is recommended by most recent guidelines.
Stress dobutamine and stress perfusion CMR yield sensitivities and specificities to detect anatomically defined CAD (>50% coronary stenoses) ranging from 83% to 91% and from 83% to 86%, respectively, with areas Author: Juerg Schwitter. Coronary Artery Disease offers today's most up-to-date, user-friendly guidance on the evaluation, diagnosis, and medical and surgical treatment of this most important aspect of cardiovascular disease.

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) affects 13% of the US population.1 Although a significant proportion of these patients progress to end‐stage renal disease (ESRD) requiring renal replacement therapy (RRT)2 or renal transplantation, cardiovascular disease remains the most common cause of mortality and accounts for 53% of all deaths with a known cause in patients on dialysis.3 Cited by: the status of the coronary circulation.” And from Dr.
Effler we read, “Coronary surgery begins and ends with arte- riography.” Even more important from a public health point of view, he states, “The logistic magnitude of coronary arterial disease is such that its medical and surgical therapy must be made available at the local level.Written by the world’s foremost authorities, this volume provides comprehensive coverage of current approaches to the prevention, diagnosis, and management of atherothrombosis and its coronary and noncoronary complications.
