BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to examine the 3-year clinical outcome in patients enrolled in the Primary Stenting of Totally Occluded Native Coronary Arteries II study. METHODS Patients… Expand
Primary stenting of occluded native coronary arteries: final results of the Primary Stenting of Occluded Native Coronary Arteries (PRISON) study.
BACKGROUND Primary intracoronary stent placement after successfully crossing chronic total coronary occlusions may decrease the high restenosis rate at long-term follow-up compared with conventional… Expand

Objectives: This study evaluated the impact of a chronic total occlusion (CTO) in a non‐infarct related coronary artery (IRA) on markers of reperfusion, infarct size, and long‐term cardiac mortality… Expand
Preprocedural serum levels of acute-phase reactants and prognosis after percutaneous coronary intervention.
OBJECTIVE In this study we evaluate the value of baseline concentrations of acute-phase reactants on prognosis after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). METHODS Blood samples were drawn… Expand
A text message alert system for trained volunteers improves out-of-hospital cardiac arrest survival.
AIMS The survival rate of sudden out-of-hospital cardiac arrests (OHCAs) increases by early notification of Emergency Medical Systems (EMS) and early application of basic life support (BLS)… Expand
