Caption: Figure 2: Digital subtraction cineangiography. Contrast injected into the left pulmonary artery shows a small left pulmonary artery perfusing only the left upper lobe of the lung.
Therefore, in the present study, we aimed to investigate relationship between TIMI frame counts of culprit coronary arteries and blood glucose values on admission in non-diabetic patients with ST-elevation AMI who underwent successful reperfusion therapy with a final TIMI grade 3 flow on cineangiography by coronary stenting.
On rare occasions, this tumor can cause cardiac tamponade, resulting in sudden death.[6] Recent advances in cardiac catheterization, cineangiography, and cardiac surgery have placed a burden on the physician to detect primary cardiac tumors antemortem.[2] Doppler echocardiography constitutes the first step of the workup and allows the diagnosis of cardiac tumor The next step should be contrast-enhanced computed tomographic scanning or magnetic resonance imaging.[5] In most cases, a cardiac surgeon can completely excise the tumor; however, both spontaneous remission and remission after steroid therapy have been reported.
Diagnostic and therapeutic catheterization require fluoroscopy with a 35 mm cineangiography primary recording medium.[31] Fluoroscopy facilitates placement of catheters while cineangiographic film permanently captures anatomic and functional details of the cardiac chambers, great vessels and coronary circulation.[36] Although excellent images are expected for both types of procedures, interventional procedures require more highly detailed fluoroscopy.[31] Digital angiographic systems provide an alternative to static imaging.[31]
