Aim: Investigation the frequency and contribution of coronary artery aneurysm/ectasia in addition to their correlation with coronary artery disease (CAD). Material and methods: We retrospectively evaluated the coronary angiography records of 6500 adult consecutive patients, and 418 of them were met inclusion criteria and used in the present study. The CAD was defined as the presence of angiographic coronary stenosis of > 50% of the luminal diameter in no less than one of the epicardial coronary arteries...

Kawasaki disease is a medium vessel vasculitis which may be associated with coronary artery abnormalities. Recognition of these abnormalities depends upon various imaging modalities. While two-dimensional echocardiography remains the first line modality to identify coronary artery abnormalities, it is subject to several fallacies and is operator dependent. Computed tomography coronary angiography is rapidly emerging as a useful imaging modality for better characterization of dilatations, ectasia and aneurysms in the mid- and distal segments of coronary arteries...

Ectasias and coronary aneurysms are uncommon coronary artery diseases, can coexist and are poorly known. Their principal etiology in adults is coronary atherosclerosis. It has been suggested that these abnormalities would have poor prognosis and that slow flow could lead to in situ thrombosis and distal embolisation. However, ectasias and aneurysms are most often associated with coronary stenosis. We report a series of 47 cases of ectasias and coronary aneurysms with evaluation of the clinical and angiographic characteristics, the therapeutic choices and we review the literature concerning these lesions...

BACKGROUND: Isolated Coronary artery ectasia (CAE) is considered an uncommon angiographic finding with varying patterns of presentation and carries significant morbidity burden to the patient. Our objective was to evaluate the prevalence of this condition, to analyse its clinical, angiographic, and follow up characteristics. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Coronary angiography was performed in 4950 patients from January 2009 to August 2014. The epidemiological, clinical, angiographic, and follow up characteristics of 52 patients with isolated CAE were examined...

OBJECTIVE: Coronary artery ectasia (CAE) is an infrequently observed vascular phenotype characterized by abnormal vessel dilatation and disturbed coronary flow, which potentially promote thrombogenicity and inflammatory reactions. However, whether or not CAE influences cardiovascular outcomes remains unknown. APPROACH AND RESULTS: We investigated major adverse cardiac events (MACE; defined as cardiac death and nonfatal myocardial infarction [MI]) in 1698 patients with acute MI...

Coronary artery ectasia (CAE), a variant of coronary artery anomalies, is a rare clinical entity. Although atherosclerotic coronary artery disease (CAD) is the most common cause of acute coronary syndrome (ACS), CAE also conveys a relatively high risk for potentially life-threatening cardiac events. We report a case of a 35-year-old male with two-vessel CAE, who presented with acute inferior wall ST election myocardial infarction (STEMI). After initiating medical therapy including bivalirudin, emergent percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) with stenting of postero-lateral branch of right coronary artery (RCA) was performed...

Among 241 children with univentricular circulation who underwent total cavopulmonary connection (Glenn or Fontan) over a 17 years period (January 2000-April 2017), we found two patients who had diffuse coronary fistulisation of their myocardium (0.8%). We also report an additional third case from Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA. One of the children had documented normal coronary arteries and myocardium at catheterisation prior to development of the fistulisation process. The same child also developed extensive veno-venous collaterals...

A 53-year-old woman was referred to us for reoperation of aortic root. Twenty-three years ago, she was diagnosed with aortitis and suffered from annuloaortic ectasia, aortic regurgitation, severe stenosis of left carotid and subclavian arteries and occulusion of the main trunk of left coronary artery. The left coronary system was perfused by collateral arteries from right coronary artery. She had undergone original Bentall procedure( Cooley graft 26 mm+SJM valve 25 mm) with coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG)[saphenous vein graft (SVG)-left anterior descending artery (LAD)]...

We present a 75-year-old male with acute inferior ST-elevation myocardial infarction, severe coronary artery ectasia, and large thrombus burden in the right coronary artery to support the use of intracoronary thrombolysis as a second-line therapy for a large thrombus burden in primary percutaneous coronary intervention.

We describe the case of a 24-year-old male with hyper-IgE syndrome (HIES) which was diagnosed at 4 years of age and died from a very rare cardiac complication. He had typical clinical and laboratory manifestations of HIES, including total serum IgE as high as > 100,000 IU/mL. Stem cell transplantation was not available. During the 20-year follow-up, he suffered numerous various infections of the skin and deep organs, partial lung resection, as well as multiple bone fractures. At age 24, he developed acute decompensated heart failure associated with elevated serum troponin I and brain natriuretic protein...

BACKGROUND: Coronary artery aneurysms resulting from unrecognised or untreated Kawasaki Disease (KD) have thrombotic and stenotic potential leading to myocardial infarction. We aimed to characterise the prevalence and outcomes of patients presenting to a UK-based adult tertiary cardiology service with angiographic evidence of aneurysm or ectasia. METHODS: Retrospective review was undertaken of reports and original coronary angiograms in all patients under 50years old undergoing coronary angiography between 2011 and 2015...

An increased diameter (ectasis) and/or long and tortuous course (dolichosis) of at least one cerebral artery define intracranial arterial dolichoectasia (IADE). IADE could be detected incidentally or may give rise to an array of neurological complications including ischemic stroke, intracranial hemorrhage, or compression of surrounding neural structures. The basilar artery is preferentially affected and has been studied in more detail, mainly due to the presence of accepted diagnostic criteria proposed by Smoker and colleagues in 1986 (1)...

BACKGROUND: Serglycin plays an important role in the inflammatory status, but the relationship between coronary artery ectasia (CAE) and serglycin is still unknown. AIM: In this study, we aimed to investigate the association of serglycin level with isolated CAE. METHODS: Fifty-two patients with isolated CAE and 35 individuals with normal coronary angiography were included into the study. The Markis classification and number of ectatic coronary arteries were recorded...

OBJECTIVES: This study was designed to investigate the impact of renin-angiotensin system blockade (RASB) therapy with angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors or angiotensin-receptor blockers on the outcomes of coronary artery ectasia (CAE). METHODS: The CAE patients identified by coronary angiography from our center were consecutively enrolled. We obtained the baseline discharge prescription of RASB from the medical records system and conducted follow-up through telephone interviews...

A coronary arteriovenous fistula is an abnormal connection between a coronary artery and any of four chambers in the heart. We repot a unique case with a fistulae originating from right coronary artery and draining into the right atrium via coronary sinus although Takotsubo-like left ventricular dysfunction or acute myocardial infarction was initially thought to have occurred according to the electrocardiogram finding.

OBJECTIVE: To study the values of neutrophil-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) and platelet-lymphocyte ratio (PLR) in predicting the sensitivity to intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) in Kawasaki disease (KD). METHODS: A retrospective cohort study was conducted in 404 children with newly diagnosed KD. The data on routine blood tests, NLR, and PLR were collected before and after IVIG treatment. The receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve was used to determine the cut-off values of NLR and PLR in predicting the insensitivity to IVIG...
