Association of breast artery calcification with coronary artery disease and carotid intima-media thickness in premenopausal women Sarrafzadegann, N.; Ashrafi, F.; Noorbakhsh, M.; Haghighi, M.; Sadeghi, M.; Mazaheri, F.; Asgari, S.; Akhavan, A. (2009)This study investigated whether breast arterial calcification [BAC] has an association with coronary artery diseases [CAD] in young premenopausal women and evaluated the association of BAC with carotid intima-media thickness and standard CAD risk factors. Among 84 premenopausal women aged < 55 years who were referred for coronary angiography, 34 [40.5%] had abnormal angiographic findings and 6 [7.1%] showed BAC in their mammograms. The body mass index of patients with BAC was significantly higher than those without BAC. BAC had no significant ...
Yilmaz, N.; Cicek, H.K.; Celik, A.; Meram, I.; Kocabas, R.; Davutoglu, V. (2007)We evaluated 3 new markers for coronary artery disease [CAD] [bilirubin, total homocysteine [t-Hcy] and high-sensitivity C-reactive protein [hs-CRP]] in 319 patients with chest pains divided into 2 groups based on coronary angiography: CAD group [n = 262] and non-CAD group [n = 57]. A control group consisted of 50 healthy subjects. t-Hcy had the highest diagnostic value for diagnosis of angiographically documented patients; bilirubin had the lowest. The sensitivities and specificities [based on ROC curves] of bilirubin, hs-CRP and t-Hcy were ...
