A 73-year-old obese woman underwent coronary artery-bypass operation in 11/1995 because of a coronary two vessel disease. The left coronary artery was bypassed by the left mammarial internal artery. In 2 and 3/2002, balloon-dilatation of stenoses of the right coronary artery and the circumflex was performed. Angina pectoris relapsed and in 9/2002 the(More)
I. The actual data base on the decision–making process of indication for revascularization reveals that angiographic severity of coronary artery disease (CAD) is the primary determinant of referral to coronary interventional procedures. Several recent studies demonstrated that after an acute myocardial infarction, women undergo cardiac catheterization to a(More)
In Western countries, chronic coronary artery disease (CAD) has a prevalence of 3–4%. The aims of treatment of chronic CAD are (1) improvement of quality of life by preventing anginal pain, by maintaining exercise capability, and by reducing anxiety; (2) decrease of cardiovascular morbidity, especially by avoiding myocardial infarction and development of(More)
I. Myocardial hypertrophy, for instance in patients with hypertensive heart disease, is characterized by a reduction of coronary vascular reserve, even in the presence of normal coronary arteries. In hypertensive animals, on the microcirculatory level functional changes can be observed before the onset of any structural rarefications. In 10 rats with renal(More)
