Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of global mortality, yet its early detection remains a vexing problem of modern medicine. Although the computed tomography (CT) calcium score predicts cardiovascular risk, relatively high cost ($250–400) and radiation dose (1–3 mSv) limit its universal utility as a screening tool. Dual-energy digital subtraction(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine how all-cause hospitalizations within 12 months preceding an index heart failure (HF) hospitalization affect risk stratification for 30-day all-cause readmission. PATIENTS AND METHODS Early readmission of inpatients with HF is challenging to predict, yet this outcome is used to compare hospital performance and guide reimbursement.(More)
The Vineberg operation was introduced by Dr Arthur Vineberg in the early 1940s for revascularization of ischemic cardiac tissue with direct implantation of the left internal mammary artery into ventricular myocardium. We report the case of an 81-year-old man who presented to the Veterans Administration Medical Center with progressive shortness of breath(More)
The Vineberg operation was introduced by Arthur Vineberg in the early 1940s as an experimental model for revascularization of ischemic cardiac tissue in animal models with direct implantation of left internal mammary artery into ventricular myocardium. The first attempt in a human was performed in 1950, followed by 10,000 to 15,000 Vineberg operations(More)
