One hundred and twenty consecutive north-west Indian Punjabi adults (men = 97, women = 23) with angiographically
proven and stable CAD attending were studied between July 2001 and June 2002 at Postgraduate Institute of Medical Education & Research (PGIMER), Chandigarh.
Continuous variable such as age was reported as mean +- standard deviation while categorical variables such as gender, diabetes, hypertension, family history of premature coronary artery disease, obesity, dyslipidemia, smoking and type of valve surgery were reported using frequency and percentages Frequency of angiographically
significant CAD was also recorded as percentage.
Panic disorder in patients with chest pain and angiographically
normal coronary arteries.
detectable cause for non-traumatic intracranial hemorrhage was obtained in 85.5% cases evaluated.
ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction in young persons without angiographically
demonstrable coronary arterial disease.
The patients were aged 1885 years and had angiographically
documented coronary artery disease, a positive exercise tolerance test, and stable chronic angina pectoris for at least 2 months prior to enrollment.
OPTIMIST involved 110 patients who experienced 120 stent thromboses, making this the largest-ever single series of patients with angiographically
defined stent thrombosis ever reported, according to Dr.
significant coronary restenosis was considered present if clinical symptoms persisted and coronary angiography showed lumen narrowing [greater than or equal to] 50%, as measured by quantitative coronary angiography (Quantcor; Siemens).
The study included 22 patients with angiographically
documented, severe coronary artery disease that was not immediately life threatening.
In conclusion, to the best of our knowledge, our case has the longest angiographically
documented anomalous left main coronary artery arising from right sinus of valsalva in the literature until now.
The patient was considered to exhibit a no-reflow phenomenon if blood flow in the IRA was a TIMI[?]2 flow despite successful dilatation and absence of mechanical complications such as dissection, spasm or angiographically
evident distal embolization after completion of the procedure.
confirmed MI patients were considered under inclusion criteria.
