Selective percutaneous coronary arteriography: an experience with 600 procedures

The Journal of Cardiovascular Surgery

Abstract

Six hundred selective percutaneous coronary angiographies have been performed, using the Judkins technique. The procedure was well tolerated even by critically ill patients. Considering the low risk (mortality: 1.7%), the relatively infrequent complications (2.7%) and the value of the information obtained, selective coronary arteriography is a prerequisite to any meaningful surgery.

Atrial Fibrillation

Atrial fibrillation is a common arrhythmia that is associated with substantial morbidity and mortality, particularly due to stroke and thromboembolism. Here is the latest research.

Arrhythmia

Arrhythmias are abnormalities in heart rhythms, which can be either too fast or too slow. They can result from abnormalities of the initiation of an impulse or impulse conduction or a combination of both. Here is the latest research on arrhythmias.
