Prediction and functional analysis of native disorder in proteins from the three kingdoms of life.
An automatic method for recognizing natively disordered regions from amino acid sequence is described and benchmarked against predictors that were assessed at the latest critical assessment ofExpand

Atrial fibrillation after coronary artery bypass grafting is associated with sympathetic activation.
BACKGROUND We prospectively investigated the role of sympathetic activation in the etiology of atrial fibrillation following coronary artery bypass grafting. METHODS Continuous ambulatoryExpand

Pharmacology of coronary artery bypass grafts.
Spasm of arterial and venous graft conduits can occur both during harvesting and after the graft is connected. Attempts to overcome spasm during harvesting by probing or hydraulic distension canExpand

Patencies of 2127 arterial to coronary conduits over 15 years.
BACKGROUND Use of arterial grafts in coronary surgery is based on the excellent patency of the left internal thoracic artery (LITA) and an expectation that other arterial grafts-right internalExpand

The right internal thoracic artery: the forgotten conduit--5,766 patients and 991 angiograms.
BACKGROUND The right internal thoracic artery (RITA) is biologically identical to the left ITA, yet is rarely used in coronary artery bypass graft surgery (CABG). We examined the results andExpand

An extracorporeal membrane oxygenation-based approach to cardiogenic shock in an older population.
BACKGROUND We investigated the efficacy of an integrated system of advanced supportive care based on extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) in older patients with an estimated mortality of moreExpand

Surgical implications of variations in hand collateral circulation: anatomy revisited.
OBJECTIVES One of the risks associated with harvesting the radial artery is hand ischemia. Accordingly, this study investigated the variations of the hand collateral circulation. METHODS FiftyExpand

Bilateral internal thoracic artery grafting may improve outcome of coronary artery surgery. Risk-adjusted survival.
BACKGROUND Excellent clinical results of the patients with single left internal thoracic artery (ITA) grafting compared with saphenous vein grafting have prompted surgeons to use both ITAs. However,Expand

Reactivity of human isolated internal mammary artery to constrictor and dilator agents. Implications for treatment of internal mammary artery spasm.
Perioperative spasm of the internal mammary artery (IMA) may occur after coronary artery bypass surgery. To establish the most appropriate dilator agent, we tested the reactivity of ring segments ofExpand

Radial artery patency and clinical outcomes: five-year interim results of a randomized trial.
OBJECTIVE This study was undertaken to compare elective angiographic patency and cardiac event-free survival of the radial artery graft with that of the free right internal thoracic artery orExpand
