techniques for conditions such as moyamoya disease, recurrent aneurysms, giant aneurysms, vertebral artery insufficiency, and severe stenosis, this volume features some 1,300 figures: color photos with side-by-side detailed line drawings, color paintings, and b&w images.
Repeat coronary revascularization
did not improve outcomes in asymptomatic patients with high-risk exercise echocardiography findings after an initial revascularization
procedure," according to a study published online in Archives of Internal Medicine.
Routine exercise stress nechocardiography may not be warranted in asymptomatic patients after coronary revascularization
because even though it may identify those at high risk, this does not improve patient outcomes.

If you have coronary artery disease (CAD), you eventually might be faced with a decision about revascularization
, or restoring blood flow to the heart with bypass surgery or percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI), such as angioplasty and here stenting.

More and more asymptomatic or minimally symptomatic patients are picked up for revascularization
The 1-year mortality was calculated in 30-day survivors stratified by status of revascularization
and levels of biomarkers.
In high-risk patients with diabetes, atorvastatin (Lipitor) delays the development of acute coronary events but does not significantly decrease the rate of revascularization
or all-cause mortality.
