We report a rare case of cardiac failure for intrapericardial hematoma 11 years after coronary artery bypass grafting. A 59-year-old man was admitted to our hospital with cardiac tamponade. Echocardiography and computed tomography scan showed severe compression of the left ventricle(LV) by a large mass sized about 5×8 cm. Coronary angiography showed total occlusion at circumflex branch (Cx) #11. The mass was diagnosed with intrapericardial hematoma. We performed removal of hematoma in the pericardial cavity, and removed hematoma had 126 g...

A 73-year-old male with diabetes mellitius was referred to our hospital for coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). Preoperative coronary angiography revealed three-vessel coronary disease. Minimally invasive coronary artery grafting (MICS CABG) via left thoracotomy was selected to decrease surgical site infection due to severe diabetes. In situ bilateral internal thoracic arteries (BITA) were harvested using a long type Harmonic scalpel. In situ right internal thorac artery( RITA)-left anterior descending artery (LAD), in situ left internal thorac artery( LITA)-high lateral branch (HL), and aorta-saphenous vein graft (SVG)-#4 posterior descending artery were performed...

Patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) are destined to lifelong antiplatelet therapy in form of aspirin (acetylsalicylic acid) alone, or in combination with other P2Y2 inhibitors. Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) are the preferred agents for the treatment and prophylaxis of gastrointestinal injury associated with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug or acetylsalicylic acid or both,(1) but recent data has raised questions about their association with negative cardiovascular events. We report 2 cases of patients with known CAD presented with chest pain mimicking angina pectoris that successfully resolved on discontinuation of the PPIs...

REVIEW
Armin Arbab-Zadeh, Valentin Fuster
Patients undergoing coronary angiography for suspected coronary heart disease who are found to have coronary atherosclerotic disease with <50% diameter stenosis may carry a risk of adverse cardiac events similar to that in patients with single-vessel obstructive disease. Yet clinical practice guidelines offer no direction for managing symptomatic patients with nonobstructive coronary atherosclerosis because current diagnostic criteria for coronary heart disease are not met. Accordingly, secondary preventive measures are not endorsed, and their role is not defined in this setting...

BACKGROUND: Computed tomographic (CT) cardiac angiography is of increasing value in several areas of patient management in cardiology. We assessed the ability of CT cardiac angiography to effectively 'rule out' severe coronary stenoses in patients presenting with 'atypical' symptoms and/or an equivocal stress test, which offers a new approach to the management of coronary artery disease. We also examined the use of the CT calcium score test in cardiovascular (CVS) risk assessment. METHODS: From a large single centre (Mercy Hospital) in Auckland, using a prospectively acquired, comprehensive database, we audited the entire eight-year experience of 5,169 patients (7/8/06 to 31/1/14) who underwent 5,237 64-slice computed tomographic (CT) cardiac angiogram or CT calcium score tests (GE Lightspeed scanner)...

Significant associations between clinical history factors, lipid metabolism parameters, and type of atherosclerotic process (area of vascular lesions and severity of clinical manifestations) were detected. The predominance of generalized atherosclerosis in chronic coronary heart disease group was associated with patients' age, more incident excessive body weight and type 2 diabetes mellitus, and more severe course of arterial hypertension. Increased lipid spectrum atherogenicity was significantly more often observed in generalized atherosclerosis in the myocardial infarction group...

Angina has traditionally been thought to be caused by obstructive coronary artery disease (CAD). However, a substantial number of patients with angina are found to not have obstructive CAD when undergoing coronary angiography. A significant proportion of these patients have coronary microvascular dysfunction (CMD), characterized by heightened sensitivity to vasoconstrictor stimuli and limited microvascular vasodilator capacity. With the advent of non-invasive and invasive techniques, the coronary microvasculature has been more extensively studied in the past 2 decades...

An 11-year-old boy presented with easy fatigability, multiple xanthomas, and absent pedal pulsations. Laboratory workup showed severe hypercholesterolaemia and non-invasive imaging revealed 'normally functioning' bicuspid aortic valve and tight aortic coarctation. Coronary angiography showed severe right coronary artery (RCA) stenosis. Medical treatment resulted in significant improvement of dyslipidaemia. We successfully performed balloon dilation and stenting of his coarctation, as well as percutaneous coronary intervention for RCA lesion...
