AIMS This report describes the baseline characteristics of patients in the Reduction of Events with Darbepoetin alfa in Heart Failure trial (RED-HF) which is testing the hypothesis that anaemia correction with darbepoetin alfa will reduce the composite endpoint of death from any cause or hospital admission for worsening heart failure, and improve other(More)
INTRODUCTION Over the past two decades, India has witnessed a staggering increase in the incidence and mortality of ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). Indians have higher rates of STEMI and younger populations that suffer from it when compared with developed countries. Yet, the recommended reperfusion therapy with fibrinolysis and percutaneous(More)
Acute myocardial infarction (AMI) due to coronary artery disease is a leading cause of death in both the developed and developing countries. The advent of coronary care units and early reperfusion therapy (Thrombolytic and Percutaneous Coronary Intervention) has substantially decreased in-hospital mortality rates and has improved the outcome in survivors of(More)
A 26-year-old lady was evaluated at our hospital for rheumatic mitral valve disease in March 2007. She underwent Mitral Valve Replacement (MVR) with a bio-prosthetic valve (Bio-cor-27 mm) in April 2007. She was discharged on the 9 th day with stable hemodynamics and optimized INR values. During follow up she had optimal INR values and normal gradients(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the efficacy of pharmacoinvasive strategy versus primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). Primary PCI is the preferred treatment for STEMI, but it is not a feasible option for many. A pharmacoinvasive strategy might be a practical solution in the Indian(More)
We report two cases of patients of cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) whose ECGs, during follow up, showed different paced QRS morphology as compared to those of immediate post-device implantation. Parameters of leads, including sensitivity and capture thresholds, were unchanged. There was no lead dislodgement confirmed on fluoroscopy. The ECGs(More)
