PURPOSE In addition to its usefulness as a therapeutic modality, intracavernous injection may also be done in a diagnostic capacity. While a good response to an intracavernous injection test rules out venous leakage, a failed erectile response to the test in the office setting may not be completely representative of the patient erectile state. We determined(More)
OBJECTIVES To investigate the value of pulsed tissue Doppler imaging (TDI) in order to predict significant coronary artery stenosis supplying the noninfarct region in patients after acute anterior myocardial infarction. SUBJECTS AND METHODS Transthoracic echocardiography and coronary angiography were performed on 220 patients with acute anterior(More)
BACKGROUND Differentiation of pseudonormal/restrictive from normal mitral flow is still clinically problematic. Pseudonormal/restrictive flow is usually associated with left ventricular dysfunction, which can be detected by Doppler Tei index, combining systolic and diastolic function. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to test the feasibility of the(More)
OBJECTIVES To investigate the value of T-wave inversion after premature ventricular complexes (PVCs) for the prediction of hypertensive patients with a likelihood of ischemic heart disease (IHD). PATIENTS AND METHODS Ambulatory 24-hour ECG, ambulatory 24-hour blood pressure (BP) recording, echocardiography, treadmill exercise ECG test and thallium-201(More)
OBJECTIVES To investigate the relationship between early T-wave inversion after thrombolytic therapy and the likelihood of successful epicardial coronary reperfusion. SUBJECTS AND METHODS Thrombolytic therapy was given to 195 patients with ST segment elevation due to acute anterior myocardial infarction (AMI). Coronary angiography was performed. Receiver(More)
