Abstract

The relationship between aortic dissection and coronary artery disease is not clear. The purpose of this study was to clarify the difference in the rate of coronary artery atherosclerosis between Stanford type A and type B aortic dissection by reviewing our institutional database. One hundred and forty-five patients (78 males, 67 females; mean age: 60 ± 12 years) admitted to our hospital with acute aortic dissection who underwent coronary angiography during hospitalization from 2000 through 2002 were enrolled in this study. The background characteristics, coronary risk factors, and coronary angiography findings (number of significant stenoses, stenoses according to Bogaty standards, extent index) of patients were compared between type A (Group A; n = 71) and type B dissection (Group B; N = 74). Significantly more patients had prior histories of complications from ischemic heart disease in Group B than in Group A (P = 0.04), with no significant differences in comparison to other risk factors observed except for hypertension. Significantly (p = 0.005) more stenoses were observed in Group B (1.54 ± 0.04) than in Group A (0.38 ± 0.1). A significantly higher (P < 0.05) index score indicating the severity of coronary atherosclerosis was observed in Group B (1.49 ± 0.09) than in Group A (0.72 ± 0.07). Stanford type B acute aortic dissection was significantly more frequently associated with coronary artery atherosclerosis than type A.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 28 June 2018.
All research outputs
#10,057,025
of 13,153,703 outputs
Outputs from Journal of Cardiothoracic Surgery
#242
of 505 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#186,687
of 268,862 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Journal of Cardiothoracic Surgery
#4
of 10 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 13,153,703 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 20th percentile – i.e., 20% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 505 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 2.4. This one is in the 36th percentile – i.e., 36% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 268,862 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 24th percentile – i.e., 24% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 10 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than 6 of them.
