This case-control study was conducted on 50 consecutives as control group and 50 patients with acute heart failure, (20 patients(More)
BACKGROUND Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). These patients may have high level of cardiac troponins in their serum irrelevant to acute coronary syndrome (ACS) that could have profound impact on patient's morbidity and mortality. OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to assess the relation(More)
BACKGROUND In patients with coronary artery disease (CAD), the site and extent of coronary artery involvement in terms of proximal versus distal stenosis and multi- versus single-vessel disease have a crucial effect on patients' outcome. This study was designed to evaluate the relationship between cardiovascular risk factors and the site and extent of(More)
