Coronary Angiography

Angiographies Coronary


Presentation

  • We also present a review of the published studies of giant CAAs with the diameter exceeding 100 mm.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Disability
  • Disabling stroke and myocardial infarction occurred in 2.5% and 1.8% of patients, respectively.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Patients with angina and suspected coronary disease who, due to disability, illness, or physical challenge, cannot be adequately risk stratified by other means. (Level of Evidence: C) 4.[circ.ahajournals.org]
Aspiration
  • We introduced a 5F sheath into the right radial artery, but, because of severe arterial spasm, we could not aspirate blood from the sheath or retract it.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Heart Disease
  • OBJECTIVE: Aim of the present study was to determine the prevalence of coronary artery anomalies in children with congenital heart disease.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Different types of CT scans are employed for the diagnosis of heart diseases such as coronary heart disease, heart attack, congestive heart failure, and congenital heart disease and these include: Calcium-score screening heart scan Coronary CT angiography[animedicalgroup.com]
Back Pain
  • At the entrance hours, 3, 6, 8, and 24 hours after the angiography, the patients in both groups were evaluated in terms of groin pain, low back pain, urinary retention, discomfort, and vascular complications.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Fracture
  • Entrapment and fracture of diagnostic or therapeutic devices within the coronary circulatory system are a rare, but increasing problem.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Low Back Pain
  • At the entrance hours, 3, 6, 8, and 24 hours after the angiography, the patients in both groups were evaluated in terms of groin pain, low back pain, urinary retention, discomfort, and vascular complications.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Urinary Retention
  • At the entrance hours, 3, 6, 8, and 24 hours after the angiography, the patients in both groups were evaluated in terms of groin pain, low back pain, urinary retention, discomfort, and vascular complications.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Encephalopathy
  • KEYWORDS: cardiac catheterisation; complications of coronary angiography; contrast-induced encephalopathy; contrast-induced neurotoxicity; stroke[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Aphasia
  • It may manifest with encephalopathy, motor and sensory disturbances; vision disturbances, including cortical blindness, ophthalmoplegia, aphasia; and seizures.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Workup

  • The principal indications for referral were: pre-transplant workup (73%) and chest pain work up (19%). In the pre-transplant assessment group (n 19), 10 CCTAs showed no/ mild disease, 3 were non-diagnostic, 6 showed obstructive disease.[anzsnasm.com]
  • Heart Attack (includes ST elevation MI, Non-ST Elevation MI, Unstable Angina) Abnormal Stress Test New-onset unexplained heart failure Survival of sudden cardiac death or dangerous cardiac arrhythmia Persistent chest pain despite optimal medical therapy Workup[en.wikipedia.org]
Microalbuminuria
  • Diabetes duration was longer in women (37 14 vs. 34 14 years in men ; P 0.001), who also had more retinopathy (68% vs. 65%; P 0.050), whereas microalbuminuria was less common (41% vs. 51%; P 0.001).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Pseudomonas
  • To describe an endocarditis outbreak affecting three patients due to Pseudomonas aeruginosa infection post coronary angiography performed in the Cardiovascular Surgery and Cardiology Medical Center of a private hospital.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Treatment

  • Recently the ESC and AHA addressed appropriate treatments for ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) patients with out-of-hospital cardiac arrest.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Prognosis

  • Although moderate or large increase in SCr following CAG was relatively rare, the prognosis is more serious, and is worse than that of pre-existing renal dysfunction.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Etiology

  • It is used for disorders such as: cardiac insufficiency of uncertain etiology acute myocardial infarction (with/without ST segment elevation in the ECG) coronary heart disease stable/unstable angina circulation problems in the coronary arteries ventricular[helios-gesundheit.de]
  • Patients without evidence of a cardiac etiology may require referral for evaluation of noncardiac causes of chest pain. Risk factor control and enhancement of event-free survival.[journals.plos.org]

Epidemiology

  • The epidemiology of P. aeruginosa was studied through analysis of phenotypic markers, including antimicrobial sensitivity profiles. The infection control audit revealed multiple breaches of infection control procedures.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Diseases, Centre for Heart Diseases, 4th Military Hospital, Wroclaw Medical University, Wroclaw, Poland 15 Department of Cardiovascular Sciences, University of Leicester, BHF Cardiovascular Research Centre, Glenfield Hospital, Leicester, UK 16 Clinical Epidemiology[heart.bmj.com]
  • Epidemiological studies show that undiagnosed angina is costly in terms of mortality, morbidity, and health-care utilization [ 25 ].[journals.plos.org]

Pathophysiology

  • Disruption of the blood-brain barrier and direct neuronal toxicity are believed to be implicated in the pathophysiology of the syndrome. Symptoms appear soon after contrast administration and resolve completely within 24-48 h.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Recent pathophysiological studies show that the current concept of myocardial ischemia induced by epicardial coronary functional or fixed luminal narrowing should be renewed.[journals.plos.org]
  • Pathophysiology of contrast-induced nephropathy. Am J Cardiol. 2006 ; 98(6A) 14K – 20K [Google Scholar], [8] Detrenis S, Meschi M, Musini S, Savazzi G. Lights and shadows on the pathogenesis of contrast-induced nephropathy: state of the art.[tandfonline.com]

Prevention

  • Adequate hemostasis is the key to prevention. Prolonged ultrasonography guided compression of neck of pseudoaneurysm or injection of procoagulants in the cavity of pseudoaneurysm can help non surgical closure.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Blockages prevent your heart from getting oxygen and important nutrients.[nhlbi.nih.gov]
