Inhibition of nuclear factor-kappaB-mediated adhesion molecule expression in human endothelial cells.
TLDR
The use of a truncated IkappaBalpha protein to prevent NF-kappaB-mediated gene expression provides a novel and specific approach for investigating the role of NF- kappaB in processes associated with adhesion molecule expression during inflammation. Expand
Effect of intrathoracic pressure on left ventricular performance.
TLDR
It is concluded that large intrathoracic-pressure changes, such as those that occur in acute pulmonary disease, can influence cardiac performance and particularly left ventricular transmural pressures and thus afterload. Expand
PERSISTENT ELEVATION OF NEUTROPHIL/LYMPHOCYTE RATIO ASSOCIATED WITH NEW ONSET ATRIAL FIBRILLATION FOLLOWING PERCUTANEOUS CORONARY INTERVENTION FOR ACUTE ST SEGMENT ELEVATION MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION.
TLDR
Findings support an inflammatory aetiology contributing to new onset AF following percutaneous coronary intervention for acute STEMI. Expand
Direct measurement of inner and outer wall thickening dynamics with epicardial echocardiography.
TLDR
The experimental findings corresponded closely to theoretical predictions, supporting the conclusion that a gradient of thickening exists across the myocardial wall, with the inner portion of the wall contributing the largest fraction to total systolic thickening. Expand
Gated cardiac MRI: ejection-fraction determination using the right anterior oblique view.
TLDR
Fifteen adults underwent gated cardiac MR scans in the right anterior oblique position and analysis of ventricular volumes and ejection fractions was performed using the area-length method, indicating a reasonable correlation between the two methods. Expand
Inhibition of Nuclear Factor-κB–Mediated Adhesion Molecule Expression in Human Endothelial Cells
TLDR
The use of a truncated IκBα protein to prevent NF-κB–mediated gene expression provides a novel and specific approach for investigating the role of NF-kkB in processes associated with adhesion molecule expression during inflammation. Expand
Feasibility of high-resolution, intravascular ultrasonic imaging catheters.
TLDR
Although the current prototype is too large to be useful in examination of smaller vessels such as coronary arteries, the signal-to-noise ratio and resolution obtained indicate that imaging with intravascular UICs is feasible and may have significant diagnostic value. Expand
The effect of hemodialysis on cardiac rhythm and performance.
TLDR
Hemodialysis reduces left ventricular volumes and improves overall cardiac performance in patients with abnormalleft ventricular function predialysis. Expand
Characterization of the functional border zone around regionally ischemic myocardium using circumferential flow-function maps.
TLDR
The border zone in this model was small, measuring 49 +/- 34 degrees, which suggests that the functional border zone lateral to ischemic myocardium exists, but is relatively discrete. Expand
