Bilateral Internal Thoracic Artery In Situ Versus Y-Composite Graftings: Long-Term Outcomes.
CONCLUSIONS: The off-pump CABG using bilateral ITAs as in situ versus Y-composite grafts demonstrated no differences in terms of 10-year patency rates and long-term clinical outcomes between the groups. PMID: 31715153 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
ConclusionsCardiac rehabilitation programs containing exercise may provide broader cardiovascular benefits compared to those without exercise.
Conclusions:Dietary intakes of tea, coffee, and caffeine may have a negative relationship with CAD and cardio vascular diseases. Healthy dietary lifestyle is an important issue for the prevention of chronic diseases.Keywords:Caffeine, carbonated beverages, coffee, coronary stenosis, tea
ConclusionsMIM CABG allows complete surgical revascularization with excellent clinical outcomes and promising angiographic graft patency rates.
We report recent trends and predictors of ACS hospitalisation LOS in New Zealand. METHODS: Using routine national hospitalisation datasets, we calculated mean LOS for ACS admissions annually from 2006 to 2016, by demographics, ACS subtype and ACS procedures (coronary angiography, percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) and coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG)). We also identified predictors of longer LOS. RESULTS: Among 185,962 ACS hospitalisations, mean LOS decreased from 7.8 to 6.7 days between 2006 and 2016 (adjusted decrease = -0.18 days/year). Decline in LOS was observed for all demographic subgroups by age...
ConclusionSternal wire complications secondary to migration beyond the sternum are rare but potentially fatal. Precise wire location and risk assessment with CT are more appropriate when wire location cannot be clearly delineated by plain film radiography.
CONCLUSION: The study cohort is comparable to published SCAD cohorts, but notable for a racially and ethnically diverse population. Compared with the controls, only pregnancy and hyperlipidemia were associated with SCAD. For the SCAD cases, major adverse cardiovascular events occurred in 8.1%, and race did not influence outcomes.

ConclusionsTotal occlusion of the left main coronary artery is a rare condition, the fact that the left ventricle retains a normal size and systolic function makes it exceptional, which must be kept in mind to avoid dangerous examinations and delayed treatment. Coronary artery bypass surgery should be considered the main treatment of total chronic occlusion of the left main coronary artery.
AbstractA man diagnosed with immunoglobulin G4 (IgG4)-related disease at the age of 65 years underwent abdominal aortic replacement due to an abdominal aortic aneurysm. In the same hospitalization period, a small coronary artery aneurysm was noticed. He was treated with corticosteroids and his serum IgG levels returned to normal. After experiencing sudden chest pain at age 74 years , coronary angiography showed that the size of the aneurysm had increased dramatically. He underwent coronary artery bypass graft and coronary artery resection without using cardiopulmonary bypass. Thus, we conclude that observation o...
ConclusionThe POPular CABG trial investigates whether adding ticagrelor to standard aspirin after CABG reduces the rate of SVG occlusion at one year.
Abstract Objectives: The target of this study was to explore the coronary angiography characteristics for symptomatic patients with prior coronary artery bypass graft (CABG). Methods: Between 2009 and 2017, 993 patients who had undergone CABG but subsequently suffered recurrent symptoms in Beijing Anzhen Hospital were selected for this study and divided into either medical therapy (MT) group (n = 351) or percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) group (n = 642) based on the treatment. Clinical data were analyzed between two groups. Results: Patients in the MT group were older a...
