    Long Segment Left Anterior Descending Endarterectomy [10 cm] and its Reconstruction Using Left Internal Thoracic Artery

    DOI Logo 10.17352/2455-2976.000025

    Published On: June 29, 2016 | Pages: 023 - 025

    Author(s): Suraj Wasudeo Nagre*
    Although coronary endarterectomy is an option for surgical reconstruction of a diffusely diseased vessel, it has not been widely used. In coronary artery bypass grafting, a diffusely diseased left anterior descending coronary artery (LAD) is an obstacle to achieving complete revascularization, consequently leading to the possibility of a poor prognosis. Here, we repor ... CrossMark Publons Harvard Library HOLLIS Search IT Semantic Scholar Get Citation Base Search Scilit OAI-PMH ResearchGate Academic Microsoft GrowKudos

    Cardiac Contractility Modulation Device and Subcutaneous Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator Combination: A New Hope for Heart Failure Patients with Low Ejection Fraction and Narrow QRS Complex

    DOI Logo 10.17352/2455-2976.000024

    Published On: May 25, 2016 | Pages: 018 - 022

    Author(s): Bandar Al-Ghamdi*, Azam Shafquat and Yaseen Mallawi
    Background: Heart failure (HF) is a common cardiovascular disease with high rates of morbidity and mortality despite advances in medical and device-related management. Cardiac Contractility Modulation (CCM) is a promising therapy in HF patients with narrow QRS complex and CCM devices are approved and available for clinical use in Europe. On the other hand, there has r ... CrossMark Publons Harvard Library HOLLIS Search IT Semantic Scholar Get Citation Base Search Scilit OAI-PMH ResearchGate Academic Microsoft GrowKudos

    Tetrahydrobiopterin Concentrations in Normal and Coronary Artery Diseased Heart Tissue

    DOI Logo 10.17352/2455-2976.000023

    Published On: May 06, 2016 | Pages: 014 - 017

    Author(s): Erland Arning, Brian D Lowes, Matthew RG Taylor, Xingli Meng, Raphael Schiffmann* and Teodoro Bottiglieri
    Background: Tetrahydrobiopterin (BH4) is a cofactor that plays a major role in cardiovascular health and disease. BH4 levels in the human heart have not been previously reported. Objective and Methods: Using a novel LC-MS/MS method we measured BH4 and BH2 levels in human heart tissue from subjects with (n=19) and without (n=19) coronary artery disease (CAD). Results ...

    Atherosclerotic Monstrous Double Aneurysm of the Left Main Coronary Artery: A Very Rare Angiographic Finding

    DOI Logo 10.17352/2455-2976.000022

    Published On: March 07, 2016 | Pages: 012 - 013

    Author(s): Gerardo Musuraca*, Ferdinando Imperadore, Clotilde Terraneo and Emiliano Boldi
    Coronary artery aneurysm is a rare disease diagnosed in 0.3 to 4.9% of patients undergoing coronary angiography. The incidence of left main coronary artery aneurysm (LMCAA) is extremely rare: 0.1% [1]. Coronary artery aneurysm involves the right coronary artery, the left anterior descending and circumflex coronary arteries in descending order of frequency [2] and athe ...

    Lactate Dehydrogenase is involved in but not the Target Antigen in Children with Kawasaki Disease

    DOI Logo 10.17352/2455-2976.000021

    Published On: February 20, 2016 | Pages: 007 - 011

    Author(s): Lanqing Zhao, Chunna Zhao, Zhongdong Du and Hongwu Du*
    Background: Kawasaki disease (KD) is an acute vasculitis often complicating coronary arterial lesions, and gradually becomes the leading cause of acquired heart disease instead of rheumatism. Previous studies often regards elevation of serum lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) level as an auxiliary diagnosis marker when judging myocardial diseases. ...

    Oxidative Stress as "Mother" of Many Human Diseases at Strong Clinical Impact

    DOI Logo 10.17352/2455-2976.000020

    Published On: January 25, 2016 | Pages: 001 - 006

    Author(s): Federico Cacciapuoti*
    Oxidative stress, characterized by the production in excess of free radicals, is the main aspect of all living systems which use oxygen to convert biochemical energy coming from nutrients into adenosine triphosphate. In turn free radicals, also called reactive oxygen species , induce oxidative damage to some cellular macromolecules, as lipids, proteins, and DNA .Incre ...
