Coronary Angiography Within 48 Hours Before Cardiac Surgery Increases the Risk of Postoperative Acute Kidney Injury

Methods: We retrospectively reviewed 1112 patients who underwent CAG testing within 30 days before their cardiac surgery in this study. Patients who received CAG, age, body mass index, cardiopulmonary time, and the time between preoperative CAG testing and cardiac surgery within 48 hours were found to be independent predictors of postoperative AKI. AKI in patients undergoing preoperative CAG within 48 hours was 11. 2% higher than those who had more than 48 hours compared to those less than 48 hours. Patients undergoing valve bypass grafting with or without coronary artery bypass grafting showed a higher AKI risk than those not accepting CABG. Patients with AKI in-hospital were two days longer than those without AKI. However, taking CAG within 48 hours before cardiac surgery did not extend ICU length of stay or hospital length of stay, nor did it raise the risk of death or renal failure after an operation.

Relationship between Coronary Arterial Geometry and the Presence and Extend of Atherosclerotic Plaque Burden: A Review Discussing Methodology and Findings in the Era of Cardiac Computed Tomography Angiography

Coronary artery disease is a recent pandemic epidemic associated with elevated morbidity and mortality. Nevertheless, new research has pointed to the importance of geometrical features of coronary vasculature on coronary atherosclerosis's complexity and vulnerability. The aim of this article is to discuss the currently available literature on this subject and identify a potential non-invasive imaging biomarker, the geometric risk score, which may be of utmost importance in allowing the early detection of people at a higher risk of developing CAD.

Clinical and economic impact of extracardiac lesions on coronary CT angiography

Objectives: Extracardiac structures are routinely assessed, often on a wide field-of-view reconstruction, whenever reporting coronary CT angiography. Methods All patients undergoing CCTA at a joint facility between January 2012 and March 2020 were identified, according to the following tables. In > 90%, chest pain or dyspnoea was the cause of CCTA. Patients with u22651 significant extracardiac disease were selected. 687 people were diagnosed with CCTA, 4340 patients underwent CCTA, with 717 extracardiac abnormalities present in 687 patients. By 14 patients, including lung resection for adenocarcinoma in six, was required. The cost of detecting and following up of extracardiac abnormalities was u00a353 per patient. u00a323 930 for reporting the wide FOV rather than the cardiac FOV alone, averaging to u00a346 674 for reporting the wide FOV rather than the cardiac FOV alone. The way in which CCTAs are scrutinized for extracardiac abnormalities in a resource-limited healthcare system should be investigated.

Transcardiac cerebral angiography in a child

Both transfemoral and transbrachial arterial routes could not be used in this 5-year-old girl with PHACE syndrome, as a result of aortic interruption and aneurysmal dilation, as well as small looping of the proximal portion of bilateral subcutaneous veins. Through the patent foramen ovale, the catheter was then introduced to the left atrium and then to the ascending aorta. Uncomplicated bilateral common carotid angiography was carried out without difficulty.
