  1. ncbi request reprint Three cases of iatrogenic coronary ostial stenosis after aortic valve replacement
    Akira Funada
    Fukui Cardiovascular Center, Shinbo, Fukui, Japan
    Circ J 70:1312-7. 2006
    ..Iatrogenic coronary ostial stenosis (ICOS) is a rare but potentially life-threatening complication of aortic valve replacement (AVR). This complication is usually diagnosed by angiography and treated with aortocoronary bypass surgery...

    Kenshi Hayashi
    Division of Cardiovascular Medicine, Kanazawa University Graduate School of Medical Science, Kanazawa, Ishikawa, Japan
    J Mol Cell Cardiol 50:50-7. 2011
