Supra-aortic extracranial artery atherosclerotic lesions in patients diagnosed for coronary artery disease: prevalence and predictors.

It is found that significant supra-aortic atherosclerosis is present in a quater of patients with suspected CAD, and SAD prevalence increases with CAD severity, and independent predictors of SAD > or =50% were identified.

Original article Supra-aortic extracranial artery atherosclerotic lesions in patients diagnosed for coronary artery disease: prevalence and predictors

In a large patient sample, it is found that significant supra-aortic atherosclerosis is present in a quater of patients with suspected CAD, and SAD prevalence increases with CAD severity.

Carotid artery angioplasty and stenting in elderly patients: the advantage of being an interventional cardiologist

Elderly patients submitted to CAS represent a complex and challenging subgroup in which often cardiac and peripheral technical expertise is required to gain success of the procedure: interventional cardiologists are probably the preferred performers in such complex patients.

A patient with multiple vascular atherosclerotic distributions.

A patient who experienced unstable angina late after coronary artery bypass surgery, in which the left internal mammary artery was grafted to the left anterior descending artery, died following recurrent angina that was complicated with pulmonary edema and cardiac arrest.

Novel atherogenesis markers for identification of patients with a multivessel coronary artery disease.

Medical history, supported by interpretation of selected, routine imaging studies and novel biochemical markers, such as adiponectin, resistin, TNF-alpha, IL-8 or NT-proBNP, seem to be the key factors when assessing the risk of presence of advanced coronary artery atherosclerosis.

Polyvascular extracoronary atherosclerotic disease in patients with coronary artery disease.

Prevalence, coexistence and predictors of significant PAD, SAD and RAS in patients with suspected CAD, and significant atherosclerosis in extracoronary arterial territories is present in 36% of patients with documented CAD.

Prevalence of Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm in Patients with Coronary Artery Disease

According to the current study, age is a significant risk factor for AAA in patients with CAD, so it is recommended that the screening program with duplex ultrasonography be considered in older patientswith CAD.

Positive stress test in a patient with patent coronary artery grafts

A 78-year-old man admitted to the authors' service on July 2004 for coronary angiography (CA) with a heavy smoker, suffered from diabetes mellitus and hypercholesterolaemia, and was recently diagnosed as having chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

Guidelines for Screening of Extracranial Carotid Artery Disease: A Statement for Healthcare Professionals from the Multidisciplinary Practice Guidelines Committee of the American Society of Neuroimaging; Cosponsored by the Society of Vascular and Interventional Neurology

Recommendations are included for high‐risk persons in the general population; patients undergoing open heart surgery; patients with peripheral vascular diseases, abdominal aortic aneurysms, and renal artery stenosis; patients after radiotherapy for head and neck malignancies.

Angiographic Correlates of the Treadmill Scores in Non-High-Risk Patients with Unstable Angina

The ACC/AHA High-Risk Criteria and Duke Treadmill Score provided relevant diagnostic information not available from the ST segment analysis alone in the detection of significant and severe coronary disease as determined by coronary angiography.



Renal artery involvement in patients of coronary artery disease undergoing coronary angiography--a prospective study.

Patients with severe coronary artery disease or having multiple risk factor showed a trend towards increased prevalence of renal artery stenosis, hence renal angiography should be done for this subset of patients, hence no statistical analysis could be performed.

Routine screening for RAS is recommended in all patients with refractory hypertension referred for coronary angiography if refractors have > 70% diameter stenosis in at least one vessel.

Extent and Severity of Atherosclerotic Vascular Disease in Patients Undergoing Coronary Angiography The Kuwait Vascular Study

The presence of atherosclerotic vascular disease correlated with the severity of coronary artery disease, particularly in respect to disease in the lower body segment, Thus early detection of such disease inThe iliac or femoral arteries has a potential for early diagnosis of significant coronary artery Disease.

Aortoiliac Angiography During Coronary Artery Angiography Detects Significant Occult Aortoiliac and Renal Artery Atherosclerosis in Patients with Coronary Atherosclerosis

A strong correlation was found between the number of risk factors and the frequency of angiographic findings, and aortoiliac and renal atherosclerosis is frequently associated to multivessel CAD.

Incidental renal artery stenosis among a prospective cohort of hypertensive patients undergoing coronary angiography.

The prevalence of incidental renal artery stenosis among hypertensive patients undergoing coronary catheterization is significant and screening abdominal aortography should be considered in these patients to better define their risk of cardiovascular complications.

The profile of cardiac patients with renal artery stenosis.

Occult aorto-iliac disease in patients with symptomatic coronary artery disease.

The presence of OAID in coronary patients was associated with more severe CAD and with a significantly higher prevalence of hypercholesterolemia and positive family history for atherosclerosis.

Renal artery stenosis: prevalence and associated risk factors in patients undergoing routine cardiac catheterization.

Data reveal the previously undetected high prevalence of renal artery disease in patients undergoing cardiac catheterization and provide clinical and angiographic features that assist in predicting its presence and develop a model that predicts the highest-risk subset of patients who have significant renal artery narrowing.

Risk factors and incidence of coronary artery lesions in patients with abdominal aortic aneurysms.

Significant coronary stenosis was present in approximately two-thirds of patients with AAA, suggesting that coronary angiography is a useful preoperative examination in patients withAAA, and advanced age and hypertension were more strongly associated with AAA than with coronary artery disease.
