Coronary artery calcification (CAC) is associated with atherosclerotic complications. However, elevated CAC may not always imply a worse prognosis. Herein, we report the clinical evolution of long-term red wine (RW) drinkers in relation to CAC. We followed 200 healthy male habitual RW drinkers and compared them to 154 abstainers for a period of 5.5 years. The initial evaluation included coronary computed tomography angiography (CTA), clinical, demographics, and laboratory data. CAC was quantified by the Agatston score...

INTRODUCTION: Limited data are available on the impact of multisite artery disease in patients with acute coronary syndromes. In particular, it is unknown whether the outcomes of those high-risk patients have improved over time. Therefore, we addressed the multisite artery disease patient population enrolled in the Swiss nationwide prospective acute coronary syndromes cohort study AMIS Plus over two decades. METHODS: All patients enrolled from January 1999 to October 2016 were stratified according to the presence of isolated coronary artery disease or multisite artery disease, defined as coronary artery disease with known concomitant vascular disease (i...

This review covers the current knowledge about plant stanol esters as a dietary treatment option for heterozygous familial hypercholesterolemia (he-FH) children. The current estimation of the prevalence of he-FH is about one out of 200⁻250 persons. In this autosomal dominant disease, the concentration of plasma low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) is strongly elevated since birth. Quantitative coronary angiography among he-FH patients has revealed that stenosing atherosclerotic plaques start to develop in he-FH males in their twenties and in he-FH females in their thirties, and that the magnitude of the plaque burden predicts future coronary events...

Coronary spasm is caused by a transient coronary narrowing due to the constriction of epicardial coronary artery, which leads to myocardial ischemia. More than 50 years have passed since the first recognition of coronary spasm, and many findings on coronary spasm have been reported. Coronary spasm has been considered as having pivotal roles in the cause of not only rest angina but also exertional angina, acute coronary syndrome, and heart failure. In addition, several new findings of the mechanism of coronary spasm have emerged recently...

RATIONALE: Infective endocarditis (IE) complicated with obstructive ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) has been reported in the literature and which were mostly related to coronary artery embolism, obstruction, or compression. However, there has been no reported case discussing about IE complicated with nonobstructive STEMI. PATIENT CONCERNS: In this report, we report a 38-year-old female suffering from intermittent fever and was later diagnosed as IE. Initially antibiotic was given and mitral valve surgery was also arranged due to large vegetation with severe mitral regurgitation...

OBJECTIVE: Pre-clinical studies suggest that growth arrest-specific protein 6 (Gas6), a member of the vitamin K dependent family of proteins, is implicated in atherosclerosis. A role for Gas6 in stabilizing atherosclerotic plaque has been suggested. Our aim was to determine the association between Gas6 and measures of carotid artery atherosclerosis in humans undergoing elective coronary angiography. Secondary aims were to determine the association between Gas6 and sex, diabetes, and obesity...

BACKGROUND: We previously reported in a cross-sectional analysis an adverse relationship between weight cycling and HDL-cholesterol but not angiographic obstructive coronary artery disease (CAD) among women undergoing coronary angiography for suspected ischemia in the NHLBI-sponsored Women's Ischemia Syndrome Evaluation (WISE). We now examine the relationship between weight cycling and prospective adverse cardiovascular outcome in this group. METHODS: 795 women enrolled between 1996-2001 in the WISE undergoing coronary angiography for evaluation of suspected ischemia and followed for a median of 6...

Various types of atherosclerotic plaque and varying grades of stenosis could lead to different management of patients with coronary artery disease. Therefore, it is crucial to detect and classify the type of coronary artery plaque, as well as to detect and determine the degree of coronary artery stenosis. This study includes retrospectively collected clinically obtained coronary CT angiography (CCTA) scans of 163 patients. In these, the centerlines of the coronary arteries were extracted and used to reconstruct multi-planar reformatted (MPR) images for the coronary arteries...

The data presented in this article are related to the research article entitled: "Accuracy of cadmium-zinc-telluride imaging in detecting single and multivessel coronary artery disease: is there any gender difference?" (Gimelli et al., 2018). We evaluated gender-related differences in diagnostic accuracy of cadmium-zinc-telluride (CZT) myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) in detecting single- and multi-vessel coronary artery disease (CAD). We included 1161 consecutive patients with known or suspected coronary artery disease (228, 25% women and 873, 75% men) who had been referred to our laboratory for stress-rest myocardial perfusion imaging (single-day stress-rest low-dose ultrafast protocol)...

Iatrogenic acute dissection of ascending aorta following coronary angiography and percutaneous intervention is a rare complication. Most reports involve localized aortic dissections as a complication of cannulation of a coronary artery with propagation into the ascending aorta. It is usually treated by sealing the intima with a stent in the ostium of the coronary artery or conservative management, while extensive dissections may require a surgical intervention. We describe a case of the subclavian dissection extending into the ascending aorta that occurred during diagnostic catheterization using the radial approach...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: Several studies have implicated atrial fibrillation (AF) as a contributing factor in chronic kidney disease (CKD) and cardiovascular events. The prevalence of coronary artery disease (CAD) in patients with AF varies substantially from 17% to 46.5%. There are only few studies concerning renal function in population with AF undergoing coronary angiography. The aim of the present study was to assess which type of AF is dominant in CKD population scheduled for coronary angiography and if it can influence patients' outcome, the association between renal impairment and the type of coronary procedures in AF patients and the influence of renal function on in-hospital mortality...

Acute myocardial infarction (AMI) is a scarce but fatal complication in Graves' disease (GD). Silent myocardial infarction (MI) associated with GD has never been reported. A 37-year-old male patient was admitted due to poorly controlled hyperthyroidism and persistent fever. But the patient did not complain of chest pain on admission. The electrocardiogram (ECG) showed Q waves and ST-segment elevations. Cardiac troponin I (cTnI) was sharply increased. He was qualified to an emergency coronary angiography which showed normal coronary arteries without any stenosis...
