  • considered nondiagnos
  • Thirteen of 742 segments (1.8%) in 3 patients were considered nondiagnostic with computed tomography because of motion artifacts (n = 9) or calcium (n = 4). (uzh.ch)
  • coronary angiography
  • In conclusion, 64-slice CT coronary angiography provides high diagnostic accuracy for diagnosing significant CAD in patients with chronic AR and may be used as a filter test before valve surgery to decide whether CA should be performed. (uzh.ch)
  • We restrict our indications for coronary angiography to the evaluation of patients with unstable angina (pain at rest or after minimal exertion) in whom noninvasive studies reveal evidence of CAD, and for patients who are unresponsive to medical management. (jaoa.org)
  • Coronary angiography, performed before the aortic valve was crossed with the guidewire, demonstrated no significant obstruction in the left coronary system (Figure 1A) and near-total occlusion of the proximal RCA stent (Figure 1B). (invasivecardiology.com)

  • preoperative
  • Preoperative CA could have been avoided in 70% of patients (35 of 50), CA would have been performed to confirm the CT diagnosis in 26% (13 of 50), and unnecessary CA would have been performed in 4% (2 of 50) on the basis of false-positive CT ratings. (uzh.ch)
  • Cardiology
  • The implications of CD in patients undergoing TAVR are unclear.The Society of Thoracic Surgeons and American College of Cardiology Transcatheter Valve Therapies Registry, consisting of data from consecutive US TAVR cases during the years 2013 to 2015, was linked to Medicare claims data to ascertain 30-day and 1-year cumulative incidence rates of stroke and all-cause mortality.

  • Impact of coronary artery disease on in-hospital mortality in patients with aortic valve disease : Results from the German ALKK registry. (biomedsearch.com)
  • CONCLUSION: This analysis in patients with the leading diagnosis of AVD shows a significantly higher in-hospital mortality after diagnostic cardiac catheterization in case of an accompanying CAD. (biomedsearch.com)
  • Among COPD patients, a shorter 6MWT distance predicted cumulative mortality (p = 0.013), whereas poorer baseline spirometry results (FEV 1 [forced expiratory volume in the first second of expiration]) determined a higher rate of periprocedural pulmonary complications (p = 0.040).

  • Among COPD patients, a higher degree of airway obstruction and a lower exercise capacity determined a higher risk of pulmonary complications and mortality, respectively. (onlinejacc.org)
  • p = 0.009) were the predictors of mortality in advanced CKD patients, with a mortality rate as high as 71% at 1-year follow-up in those patients with these two factors. (acc.org)
  • This study reports that advanced CKD in patients undergoing TAVI determines a higher risk for early and mid-term cardiovascular and noncardiovascular mortality. (acc.org)
  • Among advanced CKD patients, those with either atrial fibrillation or dialysis therapy were at the highest risk, and in particular, the combination of these two factors led to an unacceptable mortality rate within the months following the TAVI procedure. (acc.org)

  • Furthermore, there was no significant risk-adjusted association between severity of CD and 30-day or 1-year stroke or mortality.CD is common among TAVR patients, present in 1 of 5. (duke.edu)

  • significantly
  • FMD was significantly lower in patients than controls (7.85±3.48% vs 11.58±3.98%, p=0.001), and these differences were age-independent. (bmj.com)
  • Significantly increased aortic stiffness index was found in type 1 diabetes compared to controls, and the same different pattern was found in men and women. (springer.com)
  • The presence of type 1 diabetes and increased pulse pressure was significantly associated with aortic stiffness index in a multivariate linear analysis. (springer.com)
  • Significantly high gradients were noted over the aortic valve (99/59 mmHg), and the calculated valve area was 0.8 cm2. (invasivecardiology.com)
  • The lower surgical repair age in patients in both groups was significantly associated with smoking and the higher levels of total cholesterol (TC), low density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDLC), and triglicerides (TG) and values of TC/HDLC. (viamedica.pl)
  • postoperative
  • Aortic walls of 396 patients (age 67.0±10.8 years) operated for CAD (n=126), AS (n=126), AR (n=57) or AA (n=87), were subjected to mechanical stress testing and postoperative histological examination. (biomedcentral.com)
  • TAVR
  • We conducted this study to evaluate PVD patients undergoing TAVR procedure. (onlinejacc.org)
  • Study population was extracted from the National Readmission Data (NRD) 2014 using International Classification of Diseases ninth (ICD-9) codes for TAVR, PVD and periprocedural complications. (onlinejacc.org)
  • Propensity matching was used to extract a matched control group of TAVR patients without history of PVD (TAVR-C) to the TAVR group with history of PVD (TAVR-PVD). (onlinejacc.org)

  • Among 29 143 patients undergoing TAVR across 390 US sites, 22% had CD. (duke.edu)
  • Very little data exist about such patients treated with transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR). (uu.nl)
  • Patients with Child-Pugh class B-C, especially in combination with renal impairment, had a very low survival rate, and TAVR should be carefully considered to avoid a futile treatment. (uu.nl)
