"In light of the results of the well-planned and well-executed trial by Mehta et al., the guidelines should recommend a strategy of full revascularization in patients with STEMI and multivessel disease, at least in those who have suitable nonculprit lesions," write the authors of an accompanying editorial.
In appropriate patients with multivessel disease, Cleveland Clinic surgeons also use the right internal mammary artery and an artery from the arm as bypass grafts to other important arteries.
There are cost issues involved and multivessel disease has worst outcome.
The elderly comprise an increasing proportion of patients with non-ST-elevation acute coronary syndromes (NSTE-ACS),4 and are more likely to have multivessel disease (MVD) compared with younger patients.
Elderly patients usually have multivessel disease. They also tend to have diffused atherosclerosis in their coronaries along with other comorbid conditions.
The extent of CAD was quantified by classification as single-vessel or multivessel disease, as well as by the Duke Jeopardy Score (16).
With the current ability to identify those with multivessel disease at an asymptomatic stage using the CAC, the healthcare providers could potentially tailor the diagnostic and therapeutic approach for individual patients based on the extent of CAC.
Since patients with diabetic ESRD are at a high risk for coronary artery disease, coronary computed tomography angiography (CTA) had been performed at his previous hospital visit, which revealed multivessel disease. Coronary angiography (CAG) showed severe stenosis in the midportion of the left anterior descending (LAD) artery and a chronic total occlusion (CTO) in the proximal portion of the right coronary artery with an anomalous origin.
Multivessel disease and preinfarction angina were associated with good collateral development in multivariate analysis (odds ratio 0.910, 95% CI 0.754-0.989, p = 0.037 and odds ratio 0.932, 95% CI 0.816-0.985, p = 0.043) (Table 2).
This is probably due to the high prevalence of multivessel disease in elderly; however, in the CathPCI registry, the majority of patients underwent single-vessel stenting (86.0%), which we also observed.
Multivessel disease (MVD) was defined as having more than one significant coronary artery disease.
