Carotid artery intima-media thickness and plaque score can predict the SYNTAX score.
AIMS There are few reports demonstrating a relationship between carotid artery ultrasound (carotid-US) findings and the complexity of coronary artery disease. We aimed to examine the relationshipExpand

Impact of continuous deterioration of kidney function 6 to 8 months after percutaneous coronary intervention for acute coronary syndrome.
Preprocedural chronic kidney disease and contrast-induced acute kidney injury are predictors of in-hospital death and long-term mortality. However, neither the time course of kidney function afterExpand

An operative procedure for advanced Kienböck's disease. Excision of the lunate and subsequent replacement with a tendon-ball implant
Abstract: Excision of the lunate and subsequent replacement with a tendon implant was performed in 22 patients with Kienböck's disease between 1971 and 1985. This procedure was indicated mainly forExpand

1,5-Anhydro-D-glucitol predicts coronary artery disease prevalence and complexity.
BACKGROUND The relationship between hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) levels and coronary artery disease (CAD) has previously been confirmed. Serum 1,5-anhydro-D-glucitol (1,5-AG) levels are a useful clinicalExpand

Comparison of coronary arterial finding by intravascular ultrasound in patients with "transient no-reflow" versus "reflow" during percutaneous coronary intervention in acute coronary syndrome.
Previous studies have shown that transient no-reflow during coronary intervention but with Thrombosis in Myocardial Infarction (TIMI) grade 3 flow at the completion of the procedure is associatedExpand

Shape‐Based Approach for Coronary Calcium Lesion Volume Measurement on Intravascular Ultrasound Imaging and Its Association With Carotid Intima‐Media Thickness
Coronary calcification plays an important role in diagnostic classification of lesion subsets. According to histopathologic studies, vulnerable atherosclerotic plaque contains calcified deposits, andExpand

A new method for IVUS-based coronary artery disease risk stratification: A link between coronary & carotid ultrasound plaque burdens
This paper presents a strategy for coronary risk assessment by combining the IVUS grayscale plaque morphology and carotid B-mode ultrasound carOTid intima-media thickness (cIMT) - a marker of subclinical atherosclerosis. Expand

Comparison of the in vitro performance of 6 and 7 French aspiration catheters.
OBJECTIVE A comparison of aspiration catheters that have been approved for real-world use was carried out in vitro. BACKGROUND Myocardial damage occurs during therapeutic aspiration of thrombus.Expand

Impact of serum 1,5-anhydro-d-glucitol level on prediction of major adverse cardiac and cerebrovascular events in non-diabetic patients without coronary artery disease.
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Increasing evidence has demonstrated that postprandial hyperglycemia and fluctuation of glucose level affect cardiovascular events. The serum 1,5-anhydro-d-glucitol (1,5-AG) levelExpand
