A Study of the Proximal Left Anterior Descending Coronary Artery Motion

Objective: The purpose of this study is to elucidate deformation of each compression and torsion exerted to the proximal left anterior descending (LAD) artery during the cardiac cycle. Background: We hypothesised that mechanical stress exerted on the proximal LAD artery by cardiac contractions is a determinant of the need for repeat revascularization after stenting, though the proximal LAD motion has not been thoroughly studied. Methods: We prospectively analysed the electrocardiogram-gated, 64-slice multi detector row computed tomography (CT) images obtained in 297 consecutive patients suspected of suffering from coronary artery disease for having major risk factors, an abnormal electrocardiogram, or angina pectoris.
