  • It passes down on the sacral plexus of nerves and the Piriformis , behind the internal pudendal artery , to the lower part of the greater sciatic foramen, through which it escapes from the pelvis between the Piriformis and Coccygeus . (statemaster.com)

  • Coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) is performed for patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) to improve quality of life and reduce cardiac-related mortality. (medscape.com)

  • Background- Despite routine use of coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) and percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), no conclusive evidence exists that either modality is superior to medical therapy (MT) alone for treating multivessel coronary artery disease with stable angina and preserved ventricular function. (ahajournals.org)
  • CABG was superior to MT in terms of the primary end points, reaching a significant 44% reduction in primary end points at the 5-year follow-up of patients with stable multivessel coronary artery disease. (ahajournals.org)
  • Patients with symptoms from flow-limiting atherosclerotic coronary artery narrowing can be managed with medical therapy (MT), percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), bypass surgery (CABG), or combinations of these strategies. (ahajournals.org)
  • In homozygous patients, LDL-cholesterol levels range from 500 to 1000mg/dL and coronary artery disease is precocious, usually manifesting itself between the 2nd and 3rd decades of life. (scielo.br)
  • The use of high doses of statins or even unusual procedures (apheresis, partial ileal bypass surgery, liver transplantation, gene therapy), or both, is necessary for increasing survival and improving quality of life, because a reduction in cholesterol levels is essential for stabilizing the coronary artery disease and reducing xanthomas. (scielo.br)
  • We report our experience with 3 patients with xanthomatous familial hypercholesterolemia and coronary artery disease, who underwent partial ileal bypass surgery. (scielo.br)
  • Their follow-up over the years (approximately 8 years) showed a mean 30% reduction in total cholesterol, with a significant reduction in the xanthomas and stabilization of the coronary artery disease. (scielo.br)
  • Coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery is one of the most commonly performed surgical procedures. (appliedradiology.com)
  • 1,2 According to the American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association guidelines, CABG surgery is the standard of care in the treatment of advanced coronary artery disease. (appliedradiology.com)
  • 4 The long-term clinical outcome after surgery is dependent on the patency of the bypass grafts and the progression of native coronary artery disease. (appliedradiology.com)
  • The coronary artery disease (CAD) is one of the most important health problem in contemporary society. (fac.org.ar)
  • While PTCA was initially restricted to relatively young patients with stable angina, normal left ventricular function and proximal, discrete, subtotal, noncalcified concentric stenosis of a single coronary artery, current indications for this procedure have expanded to include unstable angina and acute myocardial infarction, multivessel coronary artery disease and stenosis with complex morphology or coronary artery bypass grafts. (fac.org.ar)
  • The other current treatment strategy of CAD is coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). (fac.org.ar)
  • Minimally invasive coronary artery bypass is performed using one of two approaches: (1) a series of small holes or 'ports' in the chest (referred to as PACAB, PortCAB, or port-access coronary artery bypass) or (2) a combination of ports and a small incision directly over the coronary artery to be bypassed (referred to as MIDCAB or minimally invasive coronary artery bypass). (fac.org.ar)
  • As in standard coronary artery bypass graft surgery (CABG), anesthesia is required (6). (fac.org.ar)
