Nephrotoxicity of ionic and nonionic contrast media in 1196 patients: a randomized trial. The Iohexol Cooperative Study.
TLDR
In patients undergoing cardiac angiography, only those with pre-existing RI alone or combined with DM are at higher risk for acute contrast nephrotoxicity, according to a multivariate analysis.
Isolated single coronary artery: diagnosis, angiographic classification, and clinical significance.
TLDR
Typical angina did not occur with single coronary artery in the absence of coexisting coronary artery disease or aortic stenosis, and a new classification is proposed, according to the site of origin and anatomical distribution of the branches.
Coronary artery calcification: pathophysiology, epidemiology, imaging methods, and clinical implications. A statement for health professionals from the American Heart Association. Writing Group.
TLDR
It is shown that plaques with microscopic evidence of mineralization are larger and associated with larger coronary arteries than are plaques or arteries without calcification, which indicates that calcification is an active process and not simply a passive precipitation of calcium phosphate crystals, as once thought.
Prevention Conference V: Beyond secondary prevention: identifying the high-risk patient for primary prevention: noninvasive tests of atherosclerotic burden: Writing Group III.
TLDR
Subclinical disease measurements, representing the end result of risk exposures, may be useful for improving coronary heart disease (CHD) risk prediction and the status of several measures of subclinical disease in CHD risk assessment are considered.
Spiral CT of renal artery stenosis: comparison of three-dimensional rendering techniques.
TLDR
CT angiography shows promise in the diagnosis of renal artery stenosis and varies with the three-dimensional rendering technique employed.
Coronary artery calcium screening: current status and recommendations from the European Society of Cardiac Radiology and North American Society for Cardiovascular Imaging
TLDR
Current guidelines and literature on screening for coronary artery calcium for cardiac risk assessment are reviewed and it is shown that for both general and special populations a zero score excludes most clinically relevant coronary artery disease.
Use of multidetector computed tomography for the assessment of acute chest pain: a consensus statement of the North American Society of Cardiac Imaging and the European Society of Cardiac Radiology
TLDR
The diagnosis of patients with acute chest pain remains a challenging problem and only 15–25% of patients presenting with acutechest pain are ultimately diagnosed as having an acute coronary syndrome (ACS).
Clinical and angiographic features of pulmonary arteriovenous fistulas in children.
TLDR
Multiple pulmonary arteriovenous fistulas were demonstrated angiographically in 8 patients who exhibited cyanosis and polycythemia during childhood, and the clinical and angiographic features and surgical implications are discussed.
