Comparison of C-reactive protein levels in patients who do and do not develop atrial fibrillation during electrophysiologic study.
In conclusion, induction of AF during EPS led to increased CRP, which suggested that increasedCRP may be the consequence of AF.
Assessment of biochemical aspirin resistance at rest and immediately after exercise testing
The results indicate that in almost 20% of the patients, aspirin did not seem to protect against exercise-induced platelet activation, despite the presence of aspirin sensitivity at rest, and the extent to which the biochemical aspirin resistance noted in this study applied to clinical events is unknown.
Prognostic value of neutrophil/lymphocyte ratio in patients with pulmonary embolism.
The neutrophil/lymphocyte ratio (NLR) was used as a measure of systemic inflammation and investigated its association with pulmonary embolism and its optimal cut-off values, sensitivities, and specificities for predicting PE and in-hospital mortality.
Typical ECG Changes Unmasked by Ajmaline in a Patient with Brugada Syndrome and Left Bundle Branch Block
A patient with Brugada syndrome with left bundle branch block at baseline ECG is described, and after intravenous ajmaline, the patient developed right bundles branch block and ST segment elevations in the right precordial leads.
Severe anaphylactic reaction to infliximab: report of a case
The investigators found that the mean fibrinogen levels in UC and CD patients were significantly higher than in the HC group, and the mean values of free protein S and APCR were significantly lower in the IBD patients than inThe HC group; no significant difference was observed for the other thrombophilic parameters.
Pulmonary Artery Distensibility in Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease
Pulmonary hypertension (PH) is an important complication in the natural history of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and is caused by the remodeling of pulmonary arteries impairing the
Association of prediabetes with diffuse coronary narrowing and small-vessel disease.
It is found that prediabetic patients have a smaller coronary size and diffuse coronary narrowing for both genders, particularly in distal coronary arterial tree of left anterior descending coronary artery.
