We describe the rarity of quadriostial origin, the unusual course, and the unusual branching of the coronary arteries. PMID: 32062625 [PubMed - in process]
Conclusions: ACIRA has shown its ability to study the patient IC healthcare pathway, up to 1 year after the procedure. Nominative data enable the linkage between clinical and medico-administrative databases and possible supplementary data collection. The use of existing databases allowed us to limit patients lost to follow-up, prevent the double entry of data, improve data quality, and reduce the operating costs. The prospect of linkage with the French National Health Data System may offer promising opportunities for future medical research projects and for developing collaboration and benchmarking with other IC registries abroad.
Coronary computed tomography with myocardial perfusion imaging (CCTA-MPI) provides data on coronary anatomy and perfusion and may be useful in the assessment of ischemic coronary artery disease (CAD). Management of angiographically intermediate coronary lesions is challenging, and coronary fractional flow reserve (FFR) evaluation is recommended to assess whether these lesions are functionally significant. Our aim was to evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of CCTA-MPI in patients with stable CAD and at least 1 angiographically intermediate coronary lesion submitted to FFR. In this single-center prospective study, patients with...
Conclusions: Race, coronary risk factors, and all cause mortality are not associated with angiographic documented coronary calcification in any location in patients undergoing diagnostic coronary angiography.
Primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) is the treatment of choice for patients with ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). We aimed to compare 1-month major adverse cardiac events (MACE) of patients undergoing primary PCI between 2 routine-hour and off-hour working shifts. In this cross-sectional study, 1791 STEMI patients were retrospectively evaluated who underwent primary PCI. The patients were classified into 2 groups of routine and off-hour according to the PCI start time and date [495 patients (27.7%) in routine-hour group; 1296 patients (72.3%) in off-hour group]. Cardiovascular risk factor, angiograp...
This study demonstrates the feasibility of a fully automated technology for the accurate detection and identification of several anatomical reference points (landmarks), commonly used in intravascular imaging. This technology uses two different approaches, specially designed for the detection of aortic root and supra-aortic and visceral branches. In order to adjust the parameters of the developed algorithms, a total of 33 computed tomography scans with different types of pathologies were selected. Furthermore, a total of 30 independently selected computed tomography scans were used to assess their performance. Accuracy was...
Assessment of the severity of internal carotid artery stenosis is relevant to therapeutic decisions. Direct measurement of stenosis in static three-dimensionally rendered ultrasonographic color-Doppler images after an orientation with 4-D gray-scale views (4D/3D-C-US) was recently observed to be metrically non-inferior to angiography. In the study described here, power-Doppler (Christian Doppler was a physicist) ultrasonography (4D/3D-P-US) was prospectively compared with angiography, 4D/3D-C-US and 2-D duplex ultrasonography (DUS) in a similar fashion using blinded observers.
The incidence of skin flap necrosis after mastectomies is as high as 11-24%. Laser-assisted indocyanine green (ICG) angiography seems to be a promising technique to assess skin flap perfusion. The aim of this systematic review is to assess the current methodology of ICG and its objective outcome measures ability to predict mastectomy skin flap necrosis.
ConclusionsPosterior fossa AVMs may have some distinct features compared with supratentorial AVMs. The available reports on pfAVMs are not sufficiently standardized to provide reliable guidance for patient management decisions. This goal will require future studies to be multicentric and to focus on standardized, repeatable clinical and angiographic outcomes.
Conclusion: To our knowledge, this is the first report in which an immediate thrombus formation on the carotid web was observed in a patient with congenital protein C deficiency. In a case of acute ischemic stroke with carotid web, especially when congenital coagulopathy such as protein C deficiency is suspected, careful follow-up with ultrasound imaging should be performed.
