CAR 11. Rare Supra-aortic Steal Syndromes —Endovascular Approach
Supra-aortic vessel occlusive disease can rarely be manifested as steal syndrome. Innominate steal syndrome is the reversal of flow in the right carotid artery due to stenosis or occlusion of the innominate artery. Coronary-subclavian steal syndrome (CSSS) can occur in patients with internal mammary artery (IMA)-coronary artery bypass graft because of significant ipsilateral subclavian artery stenosis resulting in reversed blood flow from the myocardium to the upper limb.
The relationship between serum vitamin D and atrial fibrillation (AF) or postoperative atrial fibrillation (POAF) in patients undergoing coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) is still debated. It is also unclear...
The use of post-acute care (PAC) for cardiovascular conditions is highly variable across geographical regions. Although PAC benefits include lower readmission rates, better clinical outcomes, and lower mortali...
The impact of new-onset postoperative atrial fibrillation (POAF) following coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) surgery on long-term clinical outcomes and costs is not known. This subanalysis of the Veterans Affairs “Randomized On/Off Bypass Follow-up Studycompared five-year outcomes and costs between patients with and without POAF.
Conclusion: Vitamin C has significantly improved the patients ’ ventricular function (EF) 72 h after surgery and reduced the length of ICU stay. No significant changes in cardiac biomarkers, including CK-MB, troponin I, and LDH, were seen over time in each group. IRCT code: IRCT2016053019470N33
Abstract Objective: To evaluate the prognostic value of CHA2DS2-VASc score in individuals undergoing isolated coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) surgery. Methods: Records of consecutive 464 patients who underwent elective isolated CABG, between January 2015 and August 2017, were retrospectively reviewed. A major adverse cardiac event (MACE) was the primary outcome of this study. MACE in patients with low (L) ( 2 had 52.6% sensitivity and 84.1% specificity (AUC: 0.752, P
Conclusion: IVUS showed plaque in about 40% of venous grafts during the first year after CABG. Between 13-16 months plaque was visible in all studied grafts.
In this study, we research the relation between preoperative serum albumin levels and postoperative AKI development in diabetes mellitus (DM) patients undergoing isolated CABG. Methods: We included a total of 634 diabetic patients undergoing CABG (60.5 ±9.1 years, 65.1% male) into this study, which was performed between September 2009 and January 2014 in a single center. The relation between preoperative serum albumin levels and postoperative AKI development was observed. AKI was evaluated and diagnosed using the Kidney Disease: Improving Global Outcomes (KDIGO) classification. Results: AKI was diagnosed in 230 (36....
Abstract Objective: The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence and risk factors of carotid artery stenosis (CAS) using carotid duplex ultrasound in patients undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). Methods: This retrospective study was conducted between January 2017 and January 2018 and included 166 consecutive patients [130 males (78.31%), 36 females (21.69%); mean age: 64.25 ±9.78 years] who underwent elective and isolated CABG. Patients who had significant CAS ( ≥ 50% stenosis) were compared with patients who had non-significant CAS (
