Prompt recognition of electrocardiographic signs of acute coronary occlusion is essential for timely restoration of flow. ST-segment elevation or new onset left bundle-branch block are the most common electrocardiographic changes seen in acute phase of coronary occlusion. However, some patients may present with atypical electrocardiographic signs, and early diagnosis of ...

Acute limb ischemia may manifest by ischemic rest pain, ischemic ulcers, or gangrene. Acute arterial occlusion can be the result of emboli from a distant source, acute thrombosis of a previously patent artery, or direct trauma to an artery. Toe necrosis resulting from norepinephrine bitartrate (Levophed; Hospira Inc, Lake Forest, ...

Recanalization of acute atherothrombotic vertebrobasilar occlusions is a challenging neuroendovascular procedure. A long angiographic occlusion frequently overestimates the true extent of occlusive plaque. We propose the novel use of the Solitaire stent (ev3 Endovascular, Plymouth, MN, USA) as an adjuvant device in the endovascular management of acute atherothrombotic vertebrobasilar occlusions ...

Acute pulmonary embolism is a critical condition associated with increased mortality. Lung embolization causes acute pulmonary hypertension and right ventricle afterload. Global heart ischemia supervenes and may lead to severe shock and death. In this article, we reviewed current literature supporting the idea that abnormal matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) activity contributes ...

Junctional hemorrhage, bleeding from the areas at the junction of the trunk and its appendages, is a difficult problem in trauma. These areas are not amenable to regular tourniquets as they cannot fit to give circumferential pressure around the extremity. Junctional arterial injuries can rapidly lead to death by exsanguination, ...

Acute exacerbations are major events in the natural history of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and are associated with increased morbidity and mortality. Although pulmonary rehabilitation increases exercise capacity, reduces dyspnea and improves health-related quality of life, the effects on risk of future exacerbations (and by extension, healthcare utilization) are ...

Acute limb ischemia caused by thromboembolism is an emergent and life-threatening disease. Rapid revascularization is inevitable to prevent major amputation. So far, thrombectomy by Fogarty balloon catheter has been a standard procedure for this emergent setting, though it is sometimes difficult to accomplish complete removal of thrombus within peripheral arteries. ...

Critical limb ischemia (CLI) is the most severe manifestation of peripheral arterial disease (PAD) and is defined as leg pain that occurs at rest, tissue ulceration, or gangrene. Initial diagnostic testing is often focused on localizing the level or site of atherosclerotic narrowing and determining the severity of ischemia, usually ...

A 65-year-old man was scheduled for an on-pump coronary artery bypass graft procedure because of a three-vessels coronary artery disease. A right atrial mass appended to the interatrial septum was discovered during intraoperative transoesophageal echocardiography. Therefore, the right atrium was opened. Gross examination revealed a fatty lesion of the interatrial ...

Recanalization of a chronic total occlusion (CTO) is technically challenging with less than optimum results in arterial disease. Crosser® is a novel technology that utilizes high frequency (20 KHz) vibration energy to fragment occlusive fibrous atherosclerotic plaque and helps in traversing the occluded vessel. We report a single center experience ...

Short-term leg immobilization is an acute model of inactivity, which induces vascular deconditioning. The present study was conducted to determine if short-term leg immobilization induced alterations in central and peripheral conduit artery structure (diameter and compliance), function (resting blood flow and mean wall shear rate), and peripheral flow-mediated dilation. Healthy ...

Patients with peripheral arterial disease are at increased risk for all-cause mortality, cardiovascular mortality, and mortality from coronary artery disease. Smoking should be stopped, and hypertension, diabetes mellitus, and dyslipidemia should be treated. Statins reduce the incidence of intermittent claudication and increase exercise duration until the onset of intermittent claudication ...

There is significant interest in leveraging the electronic medical record (EMR) to conduct genome-wide association studies (GWAS). A biorepository of DNA and plasma was created by recruiting patients referred for non-invasive lower extremity arterial evaluation or stress ECG. Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) was defined as a resting/post-exercise ankle-brachial index (ABI) ...

Central obesity is associated with peripheral arterial disease, suggesting that ectopic fat depots may be associated with localized diseases of the aorta and lower-extremity arteries. We hypothesized that persons with greater amounts of periaortic fat are more likely to have clinical PAD and a low ankle-brachial index. We quantified periaortic ...
