Natural history of left anterior descending coronary artery obstruction: Significance of location of stenoses in medically treated patients
TLDR
Proximal LAD disease is more significant than is a distal lesion only in the presence of right coronary obstruction, and this twovessel combination results in a mortality rate as high as that associated with left main coronary artery obstruction.
Effect of the stenosis location and severity on left ventricular function after single-vessel anterior wall myocardial infarction.
TLDR
Multivariate analysis showed that the independent factors predicting left ventricular function were IRL location at CASS No. 12, initial TIMI 0-1 flow in the IRL at emergency coronary artery graft, and the presence of a severe stenosis at 1 month.
Outcome in One‐vessel Coronary Artery Disease
TLDR
The survival rate of patients with one-vessel coronary disease is excellent, and the risk of nonfatal infarction is low, and clinical strategies for the care of these patients must consider the long-term clinical course of one- Vessels coronary disease.
Cardiac catheterization for patients with postinfarction angina
TLDR
Clinical characteristics of the patients with postinfarction angina did not predict who would ultimately require revascularization, and cardiac catheterization is necessary for management of patients withPostinfarctions angina, because a majority of them will requireRevascularization.

TLDR
Complete revascularization of the left anterior descending coronary artery using these techniques improved the anterior wall motion in the left ventricle and cardiac performance at low risk, and provided excellent long-term results.

Expansion of Transmural Myocardial Infarction A Pathophysiologic Factor in Cardiac Rupture
TLDR
Expansion of acute myocardial infarction is a previously unappreciated variable that appears to be predictive of rupture, suggesting that regional dilatation and thinning of newly infarcted myocardium may be of pathogenetic importance in the development of rupture.
Myocardial changes associated with cardiogenic shock.
TLDR
It is shown that cardiogenic shock is associated with extensive loss of left ventricular myocardium due to new and frequently old infarcts as well, and a sharp reduction in coronary perfusion pressure could explain this combination of findings.
Prognosis in Coronary Artery Disease: Angiographic, Hemodynamic, and Clinical Factors
TLDR
A retrospective analysis of the fate of 266 patients with arteriographically documented significant stenosis followed from one to ten years found a history of angina pectoris or myocardial infarction prior to angiography did not affect survival, but hypertension, congestive heart failure, abnormal hemodynamics or left ventricular asynergy were associated with a diminished five year survival.
Progression of Coronary Artery Disease: A Clinical Arteriographic Study
TLDR
The progression occurring in patients with lipid abnormalities was more severe and more widespread than in other patients, and apparent interval reduction in lipid values did not influence the ultimate course of the atheromatous process.
Progress Study of 590 Consecutive Nonsurgical Cases of Coronary Disease Followed 5–9 Years: II. Ventriculographic and Other Correlations
TLDR
The clinical progress was studied in a series of 590 patients documented to have significant obstructive disease by coronary arteriography, finding that combining the results of coronary and left ventricular angiography yielded a better prediction than either method separately.
Prognosis of patients with acute myocardial infarction admitted to a coronary care unit. I: Survival in hospital.
TLDR
Multivariate analysis showed four factors remaining significant--age, tachycardia, hypotension, and pulmonary crepitations; as a result of treatment of cardiac arrest, hospital mortality, which would otherwise have been 20 percent, was 17 percent and preceding unstable angina did not worsen the immediate prognosis.
