In an asymptomatic population, we determined the relationship between serum gamma-glutamyl transferase (GGT) and subclinical atherosclerosis, using coronary computed tomography angiography (CCTA). This was a retrospective observational cohort study which analyzed 5120 consecutive asymptomatic individuals with no prior history of coronary artery disease or significant alcohol intake who voluntarily underwent CCTA as part of a general health examination. All subjects were stratified into tertiles ...

BACKGROUND There are limited data regarding the relation between serum phosphorus concentration (SPC) and subclinical coronary atherosclerosis in the asymptomatic healthy population without kidney dysfunction. OBJECTIVES We aimed to investigate the relation between SPC and characteristics of atherosclerotic plaques and cardiac events according to SPCs using a large cohort of asymptomatic Korean individuals. METHODS We evaluated 6329 asymptomatic Korean individuals [mean age: 53.6 ± 7.6 y, 4611 m...

BACKGROUND: There are limited data on the impact of diabetes control on the risk of subclinical coronary atherosclerosis. METHODS: We analyzed 6,434 consecutive asymptomatic individuals without previous history of coronary artery disease who underwent coronary computed tomographic angiography (CCTA) (mean age, 53.7±7.6 years and 4,694 men [73.0%]). The degree and extent of subclinical coronary atherosclerosis were assessed by CCTA, and ≥50% diameter stenosis was defined as significant. A cardiac...

BACKGROUND: Homocysteine has been known as a risk factor for cardiovascular disease. This study sought to evaluate the influence of homocysteine on the risk of subclinical coronary atherosclerosis in asymptomatic individuals. METHODS: We reviewed 3,186 asymptomatic individuals (mean age 53.8 +/- 8.0 years, 2,202 men [69.1%]) with no prior history of coronary artery disease who voluntarily underwent coronary computed tomographic angiography (CCTA) and laboratory tests as part of a general health ...

Background Atherosclerotic cardiovascular (CV) events commonly occur in individuals with a low CV risk burden. This study evaluated the ability of the triglyceride glucose (TyG) index to predict subclinical coronary artery disease (CAD) in asymptomatic subjects without traditional CV risk factors (CVRFs).

: Current knowledge of the aortic root geometric anatomy and its surgical implications remain limited. We analyzed multiple predefined parameters of the aortic root to increase our understanding of the geometric changes that occur in normal and aneurysmal transformations. Between November 2003 and September 2015, the aortic roots of 107 healthy subjects (control group) and 105 annuloaortic ectasia (AAE) patients (AAE group) were analyzed using multiplanar reformatted computed tomographic images....

The benefit of a high level of high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) against coronary atherosclerosis risk after achieving optimal glycemic control (OGC) in diabetics remains uncertain. We aimed to evaluate the association between HDL-C and obstructive coronary artery disease (CAD) according to OGC status in diabetics. We analyzed 1,114 asymptomatic diabetics who underwent coronary computed tomographic angiography in a health examination. OGC was defined as hemoglobin A1C <7.0%. Obstructi...

This study evaluated the relationship of insulin resistance (IR) and glycemic control status to the presence and severity of coronary artery disease (CAD) according to diabetes. The relationship of IR parameters including homeostatic model assessment of IR (HOMA-IR), triglyceride-glucose (TyG) index, and triglyceride-to-high density lipoprotein cholesterol ratio (TG/HDL), and hemoglobin A1C (HbA1C) level to CAD and obstructive CAD was evaluated in 5,764 asymptomatic subjects who underwent corona...
