Coronary artery ectasia also known as dilated coronopathy is a relatively rare finding that is most commonly associated with atherosclerosis. Several alternative reasons including congenital malformations and chronic inflammation have been identified as a cause of CAE. In this case, we discuss a 61-year-old male with postoperative chest pain who was found to have localized CAE in the absence of significant atherosclerosis. We also elucidate the recently proposed markers of chronic inflammation that might be associated with coronary artery ectasia...

OBJECTIVES: Changing lifestyles and monitoring risk factors are two of the goals of secondary prevention programmes. To do this, it is necessary to investigate the level of patient's awareness regarding such factors. The purpose of this study was to investigate which factors the patients attribute as the cause of their ischemic disease and the level of their awareness. MATERIALS AND METHODS: One hundred and fifty-one patients from the Cardiology Rehabilitation Ward, who had undergone coronary bypass surgery, were enlisted (average age: 63...

OBJECTIVES: The purpose of our study was to evaluate the clinical significance of isolated coronary artery ectasias or aneurysms (CEA). BACKGROUND: It has been postulated that altered coronary blood flow in CEA predisposes patients to the development of myocardial ischemia (CI) and infarction. METHODS: Sixty-seven patients with bilateral nonobstructive CEA without associated cardiac defects ("dilated coronaropathy") were derived from 16,341 cardiac catheterizations between 1986 and 1997...

The cardiovascular effects of elgodipine were studied and compared with those of nifedipine in the presence or absence of ganglion blockade. A bolus of elgodipine (5-25 microg/kg) or nifedipine (60-120 microg/kg) was given and sequential cardiovascular effects in rats were recorded. Both dihydropyridines induced a dose-dependent decrease in mean arterial pressure but, whereas nifedipine induced reflex tachycardia, elgodipine induced a dose-dependent bradycardia. Both substances induced decreases in left ventricular d P/dt(max) without significant changes in central venous pressure...

Diabetes Mellitus represents an important public health problem in the most developed industrialized countries. Clinical presentations of diabetes are strongly related to the cardiovascular system, namely, coronary disease and angiopathic renal failure. Diabetes modifies the clinical course of arteriosclerosis by carrying the angiopathic process to a microvascular level, where typical microangiopathic lesions can be observed. The risk of developing atherosclerotic disease is 2-3 fold higher in diabetics than in nondiabetics and arterial hypertension reaches a prevalence of 40 to 80%...

The 'behavioral pattern A' and the 'B' pattern in selected groups of male populations in the framework of a prospective and predictive study of a large population of civil service employees is compared. The Personality Inventory of Lazare, Klerman and Armor and the auto-questionnaire of Bortner were used to differentiate the 'A' and 'B' group populations. Selected cards from Murray's TAT seem more appropriate in this respect and demonstrate the lack of efficiency of certain questionnaires in areas of psychosomatic research...
