The authors emphasize advantages of using the internal thoracic artery for mammary-coronary shunts in patients with ischemic heart disease. 257 operations have been performed in the clinic since 1964. Among them there were operations of mammary-coronary anastomosis (after V. I. Kolesov) and mammary-coronary shunts. Long-term results were followed-up which(More)
The investigation included 85 ischemic heart disease patients with the coexistent dyslipoproteidemia. In 39 of the patients the operation of partial shunting was performed for correction of the impaired lipid metabolism. It was found that the partial ileoshunting was an effective method of correction of dyslipoproteidemia. The effect of the operation was(More)
The authors made a comparative assessment of carotid endarterectomy and endovascular angioplasty with stenting in patients with atherosclerotic lesions of the carotid arteries. The authors consider that indications to stenting and carotid endarterectomy are identical in patients with stenose and occlusions of the carotid arteries. Contraindications to(More)
Balloon angioplasty and stenting have increasingly been gaining widespread application for treatment of post-thrombotic alterations in the system of the vena cava. Endovascular ultrasonographic examination makes it possible with the utmost degree of reliability to determine both the extension and degree of the narrowing of venous segments, thus proving a(More)
The authors suggest a new complex approach to the surgical treatment of ischemic heart disease. Operation of coronary shunting for the restoration of the coronary blood flow, operation of partial ileoshunting for correction of hyperlipoproteinemia, plexotomy for removal of the vasospastic component. The sequence of the operations may vary, each one can also(More)
The authors analyze results of coronary angioplasty in 257 patients with ischemic heart disease who had occlusions of the coronary arteries. Clinical, angiographic and other findings showing the duration of having the occlusions of the coronary artery are described in detail. The details of the steps of the technique of the endovascular intervention are(More)
Under investigation there were 91 patients subjected to operations of mammary-coronary shunts with putting end-to-end anastomoses between the left internal thoracic artery and the anterior interventricular artery. Control examinations were performed within the terms from 3 weeks to 7 years. The patency of the shunt was established in 85 of 91 patients. The(More)
