Association between triglyceride-glucose index and intracranial/extracranial atherosclerotic stenosis: findings from a retrospective study

Cardiovascular Diabetology

The association of the triglyceride-glucose (TyG) index with intracranial atherosclerotic stenosis (ICAS) and extracranial atherosclerotic stenosis (ECAS) is unclear. This study aimed to investigate the relati.

ECG in LMCA Stenosis

All About Cardiovascular System and Disorders

Such a pattern is consistent with significant left main coronary artery stenosis. Angiography done after initial stabilization showed severe stenosis of distal left main coronary artery. ST segment elevation is noted in aVR. Clinical evaluation and X-Ray chest showed features of pulmonary edema.

Abbott Announces First Procedures in ENVISION Trial of Navitor TAVI System to Treat Patients With Severe Aortic Stenosis

DAIC

The global, randomized trial ( envisiontrial.com ) will evaluate the safety and effectiveness of Abbott’s minimally invasive Navitor transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) system in approximately 1,500 patients at intermediate or low surgical risk with severe aortic stenosis (narrowing of the aortic valve). fall into this category.

Photon-Counting Detector CT Virtual Monoenergetic Images for Coronary Artery Stenosis Open configuration options

DAIC

82-year-old man with calcified stenosis in left main artery who underwent coronary CTA by PCD CT. Curved multiplanar reformatted images at varying virtual monoenergetic imaging (VMI) levels (40-140 keV) show stenosis at each level. Percent diameter stenosis (PDS) decreased from 92.5% at 40 keV to 53.1% at 140 keV. at 140 keV.

A wolf in sheep's clothing—aortic stenosis and cardiac amyloidosis: “RAISE”ing awareness in clinical practice

Frontiers in Cardiovascular Medicine

This concept should be applied when managing older patients with severe aortic stenosis. Although left ventricular wall hypertrophy is expected in patients with aortic stenosis, it should not be assumed that this is caused only by aortic stenosis.
