OBJECTIVES The study was designed to develop a simple risk stratification score for primary therapy with an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD). BACKGROUND Current guidelines recommend primary ICD therapy in patients with a low ejection fraction (EF). However, the benefit of the ICD in the low EF population may not be uniform. METHODS(More)
OBJECTIVES We evaluated whether statins have anti-arrhythmic effects by exploring the association of statin use with appropriate implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) therapy for ventricular tachycardia/ventricular fibrillation (VT/VF) in the Multicenter Automatic Defibrillator Implantation Trial (MADIT)-II. BACKGROUND A few studies have suggested(More)
The effects of the essential oils of onion (extracted from 2 g of raw onion per kg body weight) and garlic (extracted from 1 g of raw garlic per kg body weight) have been observed on experimental atherosclerosis produced by cholesterol feeding (0.5 g/kg) in rabbits. The rise in serum cholesterol and serum triglycerides was significantly reduced by both(More)
The present study retrospectively explored the reasons for delay in the onset of survival benefit from the implanted cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) in the Second Multicenter Automatic Defibrillator Implantation Trial. The cumulative probability of cause-specific death over time was estimated by the Kaplan-Meier method and by proportional hazards(More)
