A definition of advanced types of atherosclerotic lesions and a histological classification of atherosclerosis. A report from the Committee on Vascular Lesions of the Council on Arteriosclerosis,
TLDR
The histological classification of human atherosclerotic lesions found in the second part of this report led to the earlier definitions of precursor lesions, and the appearance of lesions noted in clinical imaging studies with histological lesion types and corresponding clinical syndromes was attempted. Expand
Coronary plaque disruption.
TLDR
This review will explore potential mechanisms responsible for the sudden conversion of a stable atherosclerotic plaque to an unstable and life-threatening atherothrombotic lesion—an event known as plaque fissuring, rupture, or disruption. Expand
Strategies for multivessel revascularization in patients with diabetes.
TLDR
For patients with diabetes and advanced coronary artery disease, CABG was superior to PCI in that it significantly reduced rates of death and myocardial infarction, with a higher rate of stroke. Expand
The pathogenesis of coronary artery disease and the acute coronary syndromes (2).
TLDR
The two hypotheses to explain the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis, the "incrustation" hypothesis and the "lipid" hypothesis, are now known. Expand
ACC/AHA/ESC Guidelines for the Management of Patients With Atrial Fibrillation: Executive Summary A Report of the American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association Task Force on Practice
TLDR
New guidelines for management of supraventricular tachyarrhythmia characterized by uncoordinated atrial activation with consequent deterioration of atrial mechanical function are published. Expand
Assessment of cardiovascular risk by use of multiple-risk-factor assessment equations: a statement for healthcare professionals from the American Heart Association and the American College of
TLDR
The approaches described in this statement can be used for guidance at several levels of primary prevention; however, the statement does not attempt to specifically link risk assessment to treatment guidelines for particular risk factors, but provides critical background information that could be used in the development of new treatment guidelines. Expand
American Heart Association/American College of Cardiology Foundation guide to warfarin therapy.
TLDR
Warfarin produces an anticoagulant effect by interfering with the cyclic interconversion of vitamin K and its 2,3 epoxide (vitamin K epoxide) and promotes binding of the vitamin K–dependent coagulation factors to phospholipid surfaces, thereby accelerating blood coagulations. Expand
Long-term outcome in patients undergoing surgical repair of tetralogy of Fallot.
TLDR
Among patients with surgically repaired tetralogy of Fallot, the rate of long-term survival after the postoperative period is excellent but remains lower than that in the general population. Expand
