Intravascular lithotripsy in heavily calcified unprotected left main with involvement of LAD ostium taking-off at extreme angulation - Taking upon an ‘Armageddon’

Calcific's left major disease (the main disease of Calcific) is a difficult problem for many surgical techniques, including rota-ablation, orbital, and directional atherectomy. In addition to the difficulty faced in wiring LAD due to a peculiar anatomic hindrance, we encountered one such situation wherein calcific left main disease and ostial left anterior artery involvement had to be dealt with.

Dual LAD system – A case report and lessons learnt from past nomenclature system

The short LAD appears from the left main coronary artery directly, while the long LAD results from the LMCA's bifurcation is a rare find. The angiogram revealed a normal right coronary artery. This configuration has only been documented once in literature and has been dubbed Type VII dual LAD devices. Both the short LAD and long LAD models in the other six types of dual LAD devices, the short LAD and long LAD, were either born from a branch of the LMCA or from the LMCA and RCA, respectively.

Comparison of angiographic results and clinical outcomes of no-reflow after stenting in left anterior descending (LAD) versus non-LAD culprit STEMI

Patients were divided into two groups, the left anterior descending artery perpetrator and non-left anterior descending artery culprit groups. Final thrombolysis in myocardial infarction flow, improved thrombolysis in myocardial infarction frame count, and final myocardial blush score were the key endpoints. In comparison to the non-left anterior descending artery group, the non-left anterior artery group had a higher proportion of baseline Killip Class I, three-vessel disease, baseline thrombolysis in myocardial infarction II flow, final thrombolysis in myocardial infarction III flow, and left ventricular ejection fraction > 40%. Conclusions: No-reflow in left anterior descending artery ST-elevation myocardial infarction is attributed to lower final thrombolysis in myocardial infarction III flow, greater thrombolysis in myocardial infarction frame, and relatively lower Grade III myocardial blush with lower left ventricular ejection fraction and higher risk of heart failure and hospitalization in the event of heart failure, heart failure are all associated with heart failure.

The Afterlife of Edward FitzGerald’s Poem: A Comparative Study of FitzGerald's Rubáiyát and Housman’s A Shropshire Lad

For many years, translation was regarded as a marginal field within comparative studies, but now it is acknowledged that translation has played a vital role in literary history and long periods of literary innovation, which are followed by periods of high translation activity. The present chapter aims to demonstrate that FitzGerald's Rubáiyát, particularly Housman's poetry, was instrumental in the development of pre-modern English poetry in terms of form and content.

Pulsating mass following plain old balloon angioplasty on left anterior descending artery (LAD) via radial access

BACKGROUND: Trans-radial coronary intervention is a common procedure due to patient safety and lower complication rate. The patient's right arm began to swell shortly after the surgery, and a pulsating mass enlarged over the medial aspect of the arm. Right brachial artery angiometry was done right away for prizing brachial artery perforation. In this case, percutaneous coronary intervention on the left anterior descending artery was repeated and was addressed by the same procedure.

Neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio is associated with proximal/middle segment of the LAD lesions in patients with ST segment elevation infarction

There has never been any research into the relationship between NLR and culprit plaque localization. The aim of the study was to determine if there is a correlation between NLR and unstable plaque localization of left anterior descending artery in anterior miyocardial infarction patients. Group I and the middle section of the LAD lesion grouping as Group II was identified as Group II by the LAD's proximal segment of the lesions. NLR results : Group I and group II — NLR — were both significantly higher in group I than group II compared to group II — group II; NLR; The left ventricular ejection fraction was significantly lower in group I. Conclusions : The present research revealed that anterior myocardial infarction patients with elevated NLR had a greater likelihood of suffering proximal culprit lesion on the LAD. Patients with acute miyocardial infarction patients can be found with a NLR probe.

Impact of Competitive Flow on Hemodynamics in Coronary Surgery: Numerical Study of ITA-LAD Model

The failure of the coronary artery bypass grafts is attributed to a large contributor to the death of the coronary artery bypass grafts. In an internal thoracic artery bypass graft, the aim is to investigate the effect of competitive flow induced by various left anterior descending artery stenosis degrees on hemodynamics. Higher competitive flux in the bypass graft would result in unbeneficial wall shear stress distribution as a result of endothelial dysfunction and subsequent graft failure, according to the study. When the LAD stenosis was greater than 75%, the coronary bypass graft surgery was the most appropriate option to be carried out.

Intraoperative anastomotic site detection and assessment of LIMA-to-LAD anastomosis by epicardial ultrasound in off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting - A prospective single-blinded study

In elective off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting surgery, the research was done to find the correct location of left anterior descending artery for grafting and the investigation of geometrical and anatomical characteristics of left anterior descending artery anastomosis. The study included fifteen consecutive patients who underwent coronary artery bypass surgery graft. A Epistomosis ultrasound probe was deployed at the site of grafting for scanning and the site of anastomosis chosen. In 12 patients, the surgeon found the LAD artery. The LAD artery was not visible in three patients. However, the LAD artery was found in both patients after epicardial ultrasound. The anastomosis was classified as good by the surgeon in all 15 patients, based on his or her experience independent of the ultrasound picture. The cardiac anesthesiologist's anastomose score showed 5 anastomoses with positive results and ten anastomoses with positive findings, while ten anastomoses with positive results.

Checkpoint Inhibition May Trigger the Rare Variant of Anti-LAD-1 IgG-Positive, Anti-BP180 NC16A IgG-Negative Bullous Pemphigoid

Bullous pemphigoid is an autoimmune blistering skin disease that is characterized by an autoimmune reaction to type XVII collagen. The manufacture of anti-BP180-NC16A IgG autoantibodies is thought to be central to BP's pathogenesis, in part due to the close connection between serum concentration and disease prevalence. However, 60% of BP patients also produce IgG autoantibodies against LAD-1, the soluble 120 kDa ectodomain of BP180. Based on several case reports in Japanese patients, although the pathogenic significance of anti-LAD-1 IgG is uncertain, it may be sufficient to spark the formation of BP. There is increasing evidence that immune-checkpoint inhibitors can cause and/or exacerbate BP as an immune-related adverse event. We present the case of a female Caucasian patient who developed BP after being treated with the programmed cell death protein 1 inhibitor nivolumab.
