Physiology of Coronary Circulation
 Myocardial

in diastole

perfusion occurs mainly
BP 120/60 Epicardial artery Intramural arteries

Subendocardium Endocardium LV LV pressure 120 /10 Diastolic pressure gradient = 50 mm HG < 40 mm mean aortic pressure coronary flow is zero.

Regulation of coronary blood flow
   

Aortic driving pressure which is affected by the presence stenosis in the coronary arteries LVED pressure Heart rate and diastolic filling time Coronary vascular resistance _ from the contraction and relaxation of the smooth muscles Endothelium derived vasodilator substance which is affected by the presence of atherosclerosis Myocardial oxygen demand

Types of Coronary artery disease
I Congenital  Anomalous origin from the pulmonary artery  Anomalous origin from other coronary arteries  Hypoplastic artery  Myocardial bridging  Coronary AV or sinus fistulas

Myocardial ischemia
 Is

the imbalance between the oxygen supply and the myocardial demand for oxygen resulting in some reversible cellular changes in the sarcolema.

Clinical Syndromes of CAD

Classic angina is chest discomfort resulting from myocardial ischemia due to coronary blood flow insufficiency, related to physical exertion and relieved by rest, maybe associated with transient ST depression in the EKG. Variant angina is chest discomfort characteristic of angina occurring at rest associated with transient ST elevation in the EKG. Unstable angina_ new onset, prolonged chest pain (20- 30 mins), acceleration of angina, failure to respond to medical therapy. Acute MI _ angina like chest discomfort lasting > than 30 mins. associated with sustained EKG changes and enzymatic evidence of myocardial necrosis Sudden death syndrome _ sudden cardiovascular collapse with loss of blood pressure and heart beat.

Clinical Syndromes of Coronary artery disease (CAD)
(x-area)  Angina spasm Chronic stable > 50 % stenosis coronary Variant angina ( Prinzmetal)

 

Unstable Angina ( Pre-infarction angina) hemorrhage Acute MI

plaque rupture dissection,

non-Q wave MI (subendocardial or non-STEMI) Q wave MI ( transmural or STEMI ) thrombosis total occlusion

sudden death syndrome acute pulmonary edema ( Killip’s class III) cardiogenic shock ( Killips class IV) cardiac rupture

Chest pain

normal Non-cardiac or Angina

ST depression transient angina persistent Subendocardial infarction

ST elevation transient Variant or Prinzmetal persistent Acute MI



Risk Factors For CAD
Major Hyperlipidemia Hypertension Diabetes mellitus Cigarette smoking Others Obesity Elevated c- reactive protein Physical inactivity Hypothyroidism Positive Family history Acromegaly Hypertriglyceridemia Homocystinemia

Differential Diagnosis of Acute MI

Does the patient with chest pain need to be in the hospital? Patients with unstable angina and acute MI need to be in the hospital. Outpatient work-up Acute pericarditis HOCM Prolapse of MV Costochondritis ( Tietze’s Reflux esophagitis / Esophageal spasm Drug induced myocardial ischemia Aortic stenosis Mild chest trauma

Hospitalization  Pulmonary emboli  Aortic dissection  Acute myopericarditis with arrhythmia syndrome)  Serious trauma

Are the diagnostic test you are contemplating available on an outpatient basis?

Chronic stable angina EKG Chest x-ray Exercise testing with or without myocardial perfusion scan Lipid chemistry panel Echocardiogram for those with heart murmur

Unstable Angina • Above test except for exercise testing • Cardiac enzymes CPK isoenzymes Troponin I Persantine technitium or thallium scans Coronary angiogram


Acute myocardial infarction EKG Chest x-ray Cardiac enzymes CPK isoenzymnes Troponin I Coronary angiogram if acute intervention is planned Chest CT scan to exclude aortic dissection if suspected.

Risk stratification of CAD
Common denominators of patients at high risk for myocardial infarction and sudden death 2. Significant multivessel coronary artery disease

Impaired left ventricular function

Risk Stratification of CAD
History High Risk Low Risk 3. Patients with carotid absence artery disease and peripheral vascular disease 7. Exertional angina NYHA class III 9. Prior MI

Risk Stratification of CAD
Diagnostics High Risk Treadmill Findings  2 mm of ST depression at low level of exercise  ST segment elevation  Ventricular tachycardia Low Risk Normal < 2mm of ST depression at high level of exercise

Myocardial Perfusion scan  Multiple perfusion defects

Risk Stratification of CAD Continued
Diagnostics High Risk Echocardiography EF < 50% Wall motion abnormalities Radionuclide Left ventriculography Wall motion abnormalities Coronary arteriogram Significant multivessel disease and EF < 50% Low Risk EF > 50% Normal wall motions Normal wall motion Single vessel disease and normal EF except for LAD

Treatment of Chronic Stable Angina

Risk factors modification Medical Rx A. Nitrites 1. Sublingual nitro – 0.2- 0.6 mg. 2. Nitro spray 3. Oral a. Isosorbide dinitrate 5-20 mg q 4hrs off 8 hours b. Isosorbide mononitrate 20 mg BID 7 hours apart 4. Nitroglycerin ointment ½ inch – 2 inch q 6hrs off at night 5. Nitro patch 0.1 -0.6 mg / hour _ off at night

Treatment of chronic stable angina

Beta blockers preferably cardioselective Any of the following: a. Metoprolol 25-50mg BID to 400 MG daily b. Atenolol 25 – 100 mg daily c. Acebutalol 200 mg up to 1200 mg ( ISA activity) d. Pindolol 5 mg – 40 mg BID e. Betaxolol 5 mg to 40 mg daily f. Bisoprolol 5- 20 mg daily Calcium Channel blockers - available in sustained release form a. Diltiazem_ 30 mg TID up to 360 mg / day b. Verapamil _ 80 mg TID : start at 40 mg when EF is low c. Bipridil _ 200- 400 mg.: watch for QT prolongation Anti-platelet drugs_ Aspirin or clopidogrel



Therapy in Unstable Angina
Supportive Rx a) mild sedation b) oxygen for hypoxemia 4. IV nitroglycerin 5. IV Heparin ( UHF) or LMWH 6. Anti-platelet Rx a) ASA b) Abicisimab 0.25 mg/ kg bolus then 0.125 mg / kg for 12 hours 10. Betablockers 11. Anti-arrhythmic therapy for A-fib, SVT and Vtach which may include DC cardioversion 7. Followed by diagnostic work up for risk

Invasive techniques
Percutaneous Interventions  Balloon angioplasty (PTCA)  Coronary stent  Atherectomy  Lasers Coronary artery bypass surgery A. Thoracotomy  Saphenous vein grapfts  Internal mammary artery graft  Other arterial conduits B. Closed angioscopically guided bypass surgery
