      A NEW INVESTIGATION METHOD OF SUDDEN CARDIAC DEATH – POSTMORTEM CORONARY MOLD (Abstract): Sudden cardiac death is a major problem for the public health in spite of advances made in epidemiology, clinical prophylaxis and interventions. The proposed investigation method could give more information about the coronary diseases implicated in sudden cardiac death. The method involves injecting a mixture of substances into the lumen of the coronary arteries through their ostium. The mixture of substances consists of a hydrophilic, yellow, liquid consistency silicone and a pink-colored catalyst gel. We’ve studied a number of cases of sudden death with or without pre-existing cardiac pathology. The results consisted of coronary atheromatosis, myocardial bridges, a completely obliterated descended anterior artery and coronary metallic stents. Postmortem coronary mold is useful also in clinical anatomy and legal medicine.
