Estimating mean pulmonary wedge pressure in patients with chronic atrial fibrillation from transthoracic Doppler indexes of mitral and pulmonary venous flow velocity.
Mid-term results after extensive vein patch reconstruction and internal mammary grafting of the diffusely diseased left anterior descending coronary artery.
Coronary artery anomalies: what we know and what we have to learn. A proposal for a new clinical classification.
In describing CAAs the authors have focused their attention on the clinical relevance in order to suggest a practical clinical classification based on four classes of clinical significance: I-benign, II-relevant (related to myocardial ischemia), III-severe, IV-critical (association of classes II and III with superimposed coronary artery disease).
Vascular profile of patients with multivessel coronary artery disease.
Left atrial dysfunction in patients with patent foramen ovale and atrial septal aneurysm: an alternative concurrent mechanism for arterial embolism?
Screening angiography of supraaortic vessels performed by invasive cardiologists at the time of cardiac catheterization: indications and results
The incidence of significant angiographic findings and the relatively frequent association of CAD with supraaortic vessel atherosclerosis supports combined cardiac catheterization and angiography of supraaortsic arteries but only in patients with multivessel coronary artery disease.
Validation of a Clinical-Significance-Based Classification of Coronary Artery Anomalies
A high correlation was found between significance level and percentage of patients with cardiovascular events (r =0.99) and this clinical classification may be useful in managing patients with CAA and personalizing their follow-up and therapeutic options according to their class and case histories.
Prognostic Impact of Diabetes and Prediabetes on Survival Outcomes in Patients With Chronic Heart Failure: A Post‐Hoc Analysis of the GISSI‐HF (Gruppo Italiano per lo Studio della Sopravvivenza nella…
The GISSI‐HF trial showed that presence of DM was independently associated with poor long‐term survival outcomes in patients with chronic heart failure.
Primary transcatheter patent foramen ovale closure is effective in improving migraine in patients with high-risk anatomic and functional characteristics for paradoxical embolism.
Simultaneous preoperative brachiocephalic angiography and coronary angiography to prevent coronary-subclavian steal syndrome in coronary surgery candidates.
This study suggests that routine angiography of the brachiocephalic arteries at the time of coronary angiographic is effective in preventing coronary-subclavian steal syndrome in select patients who are candidates for bypass grafting using LIMA.
