2014 ESC/EACTS guidelines on myocardial revascularization: The Task Force on Myocardial Revascularization of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) and the European Association for Cardio-Thoracic Surgery (EACTS) Developed with the Special Contribution of the European Association of Percutaneous Cardiovascular Interventions (EAPCI).
The internal thoracic artery has received special attention in recent decades owing to the extensive use of myocardial revascularization in surgical procedure.
With performance that is comparable to PET/SPECT and at times favorable compared to stress echocardiography, it is now an essential tool for diagnosing ischemia and for determining the likelihood of success following myocardial revascularization.
The patient's case was presented at the Board of Cardiologists and Cardiac Suigeons and surgical myocardial revascularization and repeated echocardiography examination of mitral insufficiency, four weeks after myocardial infarction, were indicated, but prior to the surgery.
Improvement of coronary heart disease (CAD) treatment options, including patients suffering from acute myocardial infarction (AMI), is a pressing issue, in particular in terms of surgical myocardial revascularization techniques [1-13].
The aim of this descriptive cross sectional study is to assess the safety and efficacy of myocardial revascularization without cardiopulmonary bypass in patients with distinctly low ventricular function (<40%) by comparing the results with a series of patients operated upon in the conventional manner.
In this atlas, surgeons from the US, Europe, Canada, Nepal, and Japan provide 43 chapters on cardiac surgery, focusing on primary aortic valve surgery, ascending aortic surgery with and without valve replacement, thoracic aortic surgery, mitral valve procedures, tricuspid valve procedures, cardiovascular trauma, myocardial revascularization procedures, surgery of the left ventricle, coronary artery anomalies in adults, pericardial surgery, cardiothoracic transplantation, cardiac assist devices, electrophysiology procedures, and other cardiac procedures.
Myocardial revascularization in patients with severe LV dysfunction prevents further myocardial damage and induces the recovery.
These strategies are becoming more and more complicated so physicians should pay attention that they are using suitable diagnostic measures to optimize patient care for example, as progress in the development of effectual methods of myocardial revascularization leads to more minimally invasive and noninvasive procedures, there is a greater need to estimate the possibility of a patient having coronary artery disease by means of noninvasive cardiac testing.
Surgical myocardial revascularization was done by using a radial artery graft on RCA and an in situ left internal mammary artery (LIMA) graft on LAD.
