Myocardial revascularization in two patients associated with antiphospholipid syndrome: different pathogenic patterns and angiographic results


, : Myocardial revascularization in two patients associated with antiphospholipid syndrome: different pathogenic patterns and angiographic results. Korean Journal of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery 44(6): 423-426

We report on two women who underwent myocardial revascularization associated with antiphospholipid syndrome (APS) with different pathogenic patterns. The first woman presented with acute myocardial infarction, and preoperative angiograms demonstrated rapidly progressing coronary lesions, presumptive unstable plaque, and dissection. Operative findings, however, showed fresh thrombi in the coronary arteries, and she was diagnosed postoperatively as having APS. Her one-year angiogram demonstrated improved coronary lesions and a competitive flow pattern in the grafts. The second woman presented with unstable angina and had been treated for systemic lupus erythematosus and secondary APS for more than 14 years. She underwent myocardial revascularization due to accelerated coronary atherosclerosis. Her one-year angiogram demonstrated patent grafts.

Extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy as monotherapy for staghorn calculus is not without complications. We describe a case in which, due to markedly reduced renal function following lithotripsy for a staghorn calculus, broken fragments of calculi...

Prior studies suggest that aerobic exercise may reduce both the brain atrophy and the decline in fractional anisotropy observed with advancing age. It is reasonable to hypothesize that exercise-induced changes to the vasculature may underlie these...
