Several studies have compared outcomes for coronary-artery bypass grafting (CABG)
and percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), but most were done before the availability
of stenting, which has revolutionized the latter approach.
We used New York’s cardiac registries to identify 37,212 patients with multivessel disease
who underwent CABG and 22,102 patients with multivessel disease who underwent
PCI from January 1, 1997, to December 31, 2000.
In clinical practice left ventricular (LV) function is commonly
evaluated by 2-D and M-mode echocardiography.
These modalities have significant limitations,and tissue
Doppler imaging (TDI) has been introduced as a quantitative
and more objective method for assessing myocardial
function. The TDI modalities include myocardial
velocity imaging,displacement imaging,strain rate imaging,
and strain imaging (Fig. 1).

Numerous studies have compared the outcomes of two competing interventions for
multivessel coronary artery disease: coronary-artery bypass grafting (CABG) and
coronary stenting. However, little information has become available since the introduction
of drug-eluting stents.
Activation of peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR)-c sup-presses proliferation of rat pulmonary artery smooth muscle cells
(PASMCs), and therefore ameliorates the development of pulmonary
hypertension in animal models. However, the molecular mechanisms under-lying this effect remain largely unknown.
Calcified plaque in the coronary arteries is a marker for atheromatous-plaque burden
and is predictive of future risk of cardiovascular events. We examined the relationship
between estrogen therapy and coronary-artery calcium in the context of a randomized
In our ancillary substudy of the Women’s Health Initiative trial of conjugated equine
estrogens (0.625 mg per day) as compared with placebo in women who had undergone
hysterectomy, we performed computed tomography of the heart in 1064 women
aged 50 to 59 years at randomization.
In the past decade, the radial artery has frequently been used for coronary bypass surgery
despite concern regarding the possibility of graft spasm. Graft patency is a key
predictor of long-term survival. We therefore sought to determine the relative patency
rate of radial-artery and saphenous-vein grafts in a randomized trial in which we controlled
for bias in the selection of patients and vessels.
We enrolled 561 patients at 13 centers. The left internal thoracic artery was used to bypass
the anterior circulation....
At the end of the lecture, participants will know: the epidemiology of coronary artery disease, the risk factors associated with coronary artery disease, how to use online tools to estimate a patient's risk for myocardial infarction, how to screen for and couns a patient to reduce their risk for coronary artery disease.
Lecturer "The common and internal Carotid artery" provide anatomical imaging studies of the structure, function and use of the common and internal Carotid artery. Invite you to refer to the disclosures.

Dr. Sharon Rounds, the editor for this series who invited us to write a book on rare
lung diseases, developed the idea after attending the 2004 Lymphangioleiomyomatosis
(LAM) Foundation annual research meeting. She was a keynote speaker at that event
(during her tenure as the president of the American Thoracic Society) and was witness
to the power of patient advocacy and the mission-based scientific effort that had
brought this rare disease of women from obscurity to clinical trials with targeted molecular
therapies in under a decade.

The latest diagnostic and therapeutic modalities in the management of coronary artery dis‐
ease by coronary artery bypass graft surgery and by percutaneous coronary intervention
with stenting and in the interventional management of other atherosclerotic vascular disease
have led to a reduction in cardiovascular mortality and morbidity. This book entitled Artery
Bypass provides an excellent update on these advances which every physician seeing pa‐
tients with atherosclerotic vascular disease should be familiar with.
