Our previous work demonstrated that in animal models, cathinone, "the main gradient of khat leaves," produces coronary and aortic vasoconstriction; this effect was proved by inducing vasoconstriction in porcine left anterior descending coronary artery [22, 23].

Coronary arteriography revealed a distally occluded left anterior descending coronary artery. Churg-Strauss syndrome with acute coronary syndrome was diagnosed.
Dual left anterior descending coronary artery is defined as the presence of two LADs within the anterior inter-ventricular sulcus: a short LAD that courses and terminates low in the AIVS, and a long LAD that originates from either the LAD proper or the right coronary artery, then enters the distal AIVS and courses to the apex.
Coronary angiogram was performed, which revealed widespread thrombus in the mid and distal left anterior descending coronary artery (Fig.
Conclusion: The classical pattern of biphasic T-wave inversion on electrocardiogram was seen associated with stenosis in the proximal as well as middle part of the left anterior descending coronary artery. This electrocardiogram pattern may not be well defined during the symptomatic phase of acute ischaemia and, hence, maybe overlooked.
A group of 33 dogs undergoing openchest left anterior descending coronary artery (LAD) ligation causing prolonged ischemia were imaged with quantitative positron emission tomography (PET) using 2-[18F]fluoro-2-deoxy-D-glucose (18FDG) to measure regional glucose metabolic utilization (rGMU) and [11C]acetate to measure regional monoexponential washout rate constant (Kmono) for oxidative metabolism in nonrisk and ischemic-risk myocardium.
