BACKGROUND Diabetic patients are at the risk of cardiac autonomic neuropathy (CAN) and arterial stiffness. This study aimed to investigate the association of heart rate variability (HRV) as an index for CAN and pulse wave velocity (PWV) as an index for arterial stiffness. METHODS Uncomplicated diabetes type-2 patients who had no apparent history of(More)
A 23-year-old man presented with sick sinus syndrome and Brugada-like ECG pattern. Coved type ECG (type 1) converted to saddleback configuration (type 2) when R-R interval decreased and it changed to coved type pattern with increasing R-R cycle length. During stable heart rate, there was no change in Brugada ECG pattern. The R-R interval effect on these(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIM It is very important to know the risk factors of coronary artery disease and the role of inflammatory markers. One of these markers is hs-CRP that has been indicated to increase in patients with coronary artery atherosclerosis. The main objective of this study was to determine the relationship between serum levels of hs-CRP and coronary(More)
BackgroundImplantation of transvenous permanent pacemakers (PPM) has become standard therapy for sinus node dysfunction and atrioventricular conduction abnormalities. It plays an important role in improving quality of life and preventing death in this group of patients. MethodsThis study was conducted on 477 patients during their hospitalization and eight(More)
Identifying predictors of electrical storm in patients with implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICDs) could help identify those at risk and reduce the incidence of this emergency situation, which has a detrimental effect on mortality and morbidity in patients with ICDs. This retrospective study sought to determine the prevalence and predictors of(More)
