Caption: In coronary artery
bypass surgery (CABG), a surgeon takes a blood vessel from another part of the body--often a vein from the leg--and attaches or grafts it to the heart above and below the blocked portion of the coronary artery
Conclusion: This study suggests that IL-6-592G>C polymorphism is correlated with the risk of coronary artery
In the second case, the right coronary artery
was originating from the left aortic sinus from its mid portion and emerged on the sternocostal surface by passing between ascending aorta and pulmonary trunk, reached the atrioventricular sulcus and had a normal course thereafter.
The angiogram revealed a dominant, normal but aberrant Right Coronary Artery
which arose from the back of the Left Coronary Cusp (Figure-1 and 2).
aneurysms occur more frequently than previously realized and are seen in approximately 1.
In patients with anomalous left coronary artery
originating from the pulmonary artery, the time of clinical signs and symptoms varies.
Isolated SCA anomaly is one of the rarest coronary anomalies and constitutes 24% of all the coronary artery
While right coronary artery
(RCA) proceeded in its regular pathway, circumflex artery (Cx) was observed as it reached the posterior region of the heart after passing around the posterior side of the superior vena cava and it gave off well-developed first diagonal artery.
Scientists have been uncertain about the relative contributions of treatment and basic prevention - preventing the development of the disease rather than its recurrence - to the drop in deaths from coronary artery
disease is caused by fatty lesions that narrow the coronary artery
's inside diameter (stenosis), consequently reducing the blood flow and depriving the heart muscle of oxygen.
The total number of cases with coronary artery
anomalies were calculated and the prevalence was derived.
EXCEL is a prospective, multi-centre, randomised trial to evaluate the safety and efficacy of the XIENCE PRIME/XIENCE V Everolimus Eluting Coronary Stent Systems, compared to coronary artery
bypass grafting (CABG), or surgery, in select patients with unprotected left main coronary artery
