This report presents a rare case of very early bifurcation of the left internal mammary artery at the level of the third intercostal space.
ConclusionsFreedom from reoperation after CVR repair was 93% at 5 years and 86% at 10 years. A small proportion of patients who do not undergo diverticulum resection and aberrant left subclavian artery reimplantation at the time of CVR repair will require reintervention in the future.
This study aimed to investigate the relationship between preoperative CRP level and postoperative bleeding within 24 hours after CABG.MethodsData on 1055 patients accepting isolated primary CABG at Fuwai Hospital, Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences from September 2017 to July 2018 were recorded. Preoperative CRP concentration, laboratory coagulation parameters, intraoperative data, and postoperative bleeding volume within 24 hours after surgery were recorded. The primary endpoint was bleeding volume within 24 hours after surgery. We analyzed the correlation between bleeding volume within 24 hours after surgery and preoper...
ConclusionsA considerable proportion of patients readmitted after cardiac surgery are readmitted to non-index hospitals. This fragmentation of care may account for worse outcomes associated with non-index readmissions in this complex population.Graphical abstract
We report the case of a 72-year-old woman with limited systemic sclerosis, who was initially diagnosed with systemic sclerosis-related pulmonary arterial hypertension. However, after introduction of sildenafil and bosentan, the patient developed acute pulmonary oedema, and findings from complementary exams were suggestive of PVOD.
This study was designed to explore the expression of LncRNA-ANRIL in patients with coronary heart disease before and after treatment and its short-term survival prediction value. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Eighty-three patients with coronary heart disease who came to our hospital undergoing interventional therapy were selected as a research group, 81 healthy volunteers who came to our hospital for normal physical examination during the same period were selected as a control group, and LncRNA-ANRIL of subjects in the two groups before and after treatment were detected by RT-PCR. Levels of Gensini score, lactate dehydrogenase...
