Association of breast artery calcification with coronary artery disease and carotid intima-media thickness in premenopausal women
AbstractThis 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 association with angiography-confirmed CAD

Corrected QT dispersion improves diagnostic performance of exercise testing in diagnosing coronary artery disease Hasan Alia, H.; Maghraby, M.H.; Fouad, D.A.; Abdel Sayed, A.A. (2010)To determine the best combination of parameters that would improve the diagnostic performance of exercise testing, coronary angiography plus exercise testing were done on 112 patients with angina pectoris and normal electrocardiogram. The univariate predictors of coronary artery disease included: age >/= 40 years, male sex, hypertension, smoking, development of exertional chest pain, decrease in systolic blood pressure [BP] >/= 10 mmHg or systolic BP 3 min post-exercise > 90% of peak, heart rate drop < 12 beats/min 1 min post-exercise, exercise-induced ...
Clustering of coronary artery disease risk factors in patients with type 2 diabetes and impaired glucose tolerance Sajjadi, F.; Mohammadifard, N.; Kelishadi, R.; Ghaderian, N.; Alikhasi, H.; Maghrun, M. (2008)A cross-sectional study in Isfahan city, Islamic Republic of Iran, compared the frequency of coronary artery disease risk factors in known and newly diagnosed diabetic patients and individuals with impaired glucose tolerance [IGT] with normal individuals. The prevalence of known cases of diabetes, new cases of diabetes and cases with IGT in the general population sample of 3940 were 4.3%, 1.1%, and 6.2% respectively. The frequency of dyslipidaemia was significantly different comparing diabetics and normal individuals. There was a significantly ...
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 ...
