Coronary atherosclerosis characteristics in HIV-infected patients on long-term antiretroviral therapy: insights from coronary computed tomography–angiography: Erratum

DiscussionOur initial experience demonstrates feasibility and safety of deploying plugs within branches of the SMA prior to surgical resection and improved surgical outcomes. Palpation of the plug assisted in surgical resection. We have demonstrated that pre-operative endovascular occlusion is a safe, practical procedure, which aids surgical resection of mesenteric carcinoid disease.
Conclusions: ICGA can reduce postoperative tissue loss and aid in intraoperative flap design and inset. Despite the benefits of ICGA, its technical use and interpretation have yet to be standardized, limiting its widespread acceptance.
Vascular malformations associated with genetic mutations are rare and patient presentation can be complex. Misdiagnosis in this patient population is not uncommon. Time-resolved magnetic resonance angiography (TR-MRA) provides essential information about flow dynamics of a malformation that aids in establishing the correct diagnosis and appropriate treatment planning.

The purpose of this study is to determine if a new score calculated with coronary artery calcium (CAC) density and volume is associated with total coronary artery plaque burden and composition on coronary CT angiography (CCTA) compared to the Agatston score (AS).
Objective: The aim of the study was to assess coronary artery disease (CAD) characteristics by coronary computed tomography–angiography (CCTA) in individuals with HIV infection on long-term antiretroviral therapy (ART) Design: Retrospective case-controlled matched cohort study. Methods: Sixty-nine HIV-positive patients who underwent 128-slice dual source CCTA (mean age 54.9 years, 26.1% women) with mean 17.8â€Š±â€Š9.4 years of HIV infection and a mean duration on ART of 13â€Š±â€Š7.3 years were propensity score-matched (1â€Š:â€Š1) for age, sex, BMI, and five cardiovascular risk factors with 69 co...
