Using coronary angiography, the study population was divided into subjects without any angiographically detectable CAD or with coronary arterial stenoses less than 50% (no vessel disease; n=ioo) and individuals with single-vessel disease (n=72), double-vessel disease (n=75) or triple-vessel disease (n=63) (Table 1).
Patients were assigned according to the number of coronary arteries affected by significant stenosis as having single-vessel disease, two-vessel disease, or multi-vessel disease.
C0: Normal coronary artery, C1: Non-critical plaque, C2: Single-vessel disease, C3: Double-vessel disease, C4: Multiple-vessel disease, C5: Left main coronary disease; P0: Normal peripheral arteries, P1: Non-critical plaques, P2: Proximal critical single stenosis, P3: Distal stenoses, P4: Stenoses or complete occlusion in all segments.
The Octopus population comprised 280 low-risk patients with preserved left ventricular function, single-vessel disease, and a mean age of 60 years.
It randomized patients with diabetes and either multivessel coronary disease or complex single-vessel disease who were suitable for either PCI or coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG).
In comparison with the standard 12-lead ETT, the additional right precordial leads increased sensitivity for detection of single-vessel disease from 52% to 89%, for 2-vessel disease from 71% to 94%, for 3-vessel disease from 83% to 95%, and for all cases of CAD from 66% to 92% (P [is less than] .
Single-vessel disease was found in 29 (29%) patients; 5 (19.
1% rate among 377 others with angiographically significant single-vessel disease not treated with angioplasty or bypass surgery.
Coronary artery disease was defined as having had a myocardial infarction, coronary artery bypass graft, or percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty, or having angiographic evidence of at least single-vessel disease.
Based on the above definitions, we enrolled 20 patients with single-vessel disease (SVD group), 20 patients with double-vessel disease (DVD group) and 20 patients with three-vessel disease (TVD group).
