Clinical Characteristics of Ovarian Cancer Classified by BRCA1, BRCA2, and RAD51C Status
We evaluated homologous recombination deficient (HRD) phenotypes in epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) considering BRCA1, BRCA2, and RAD51C in a large well-annotated patient set. We evaluated EOC… Expand
Myocardial ischemia and ventricular fibrillation: pathophysiology and clinical implications.
Ventricular fibrillation (VF) and myocardial ischemia are inseparable. The first clinical manifestation of myocardial ischemia or infarction may be sudden cardiac death in 20-25% of patients. The… Expand
Second malignant tumors in patients with nasopharyngeal carcinoma and their association with Epstein‐Barr virus
Since previous published studies about second malignant tumors (SMTs) in nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) patients usually included a limited sample size and did not attain consistent results, we… Expand
Differential left-to-right atria gene expression ratio in human sinus rhythm and atrial fibrillation: Implications for arrhythmogenesis and thrombogenesis.
BACKGROUND Atrial fibrillation (AF) causes atrial remodeling, and the left atrium (LA) is the favored substrate for maintaining AF. It remains unclear if AF remodels both atria differently and… Expand
Acute Kidney Injury in Asians With Atrial Fibrillation Treated With Dabigatran or Warfarin.

- 29 November 2016
BACKGROUND Whether dabigatran is associated with a lower risk of acute kidney injury (AKI) in patients with nonvalvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF) remains unknown. OBJECTIVES The authors compared… Expand
Nasopharyngeal adenoid cystic carcinoma: five new cases and a literature review.
OBJECTIVE Nasopharyngeal adenoid cystic carcinoma (NACC) is a rare tumour, and its mainstay treatment is different from adenoid cystic carcinoma arising from another head and neck region. In this… Expand
Left ventricular discoordination index measured by speckle tracking strain rate imaging predicts reverse remodelling and survival after cardiac resynchronization therapy
This study aimed to evaluate the predictive value of a baseline speckle tracking strain rate imaging‐derived discoordination index for response to cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT).
Impact of impaired glomerular filtration rate and revascularization strategy on one-year cardiovascular events in acute coronary syndrome: data from Taiwan acute coronary syndrome full spectrum…
BackgroundThe optimal revascularization strategy for patients with impaired glomerular filtration rate (IGFR) has not been established in acute coronary syndrome (ACS). We investigated the prognosis… Expand
Ratio of transmitral early filling velocity to early diastolic strain rate predicts outcomes in patients with systolic heart failure
- Yi-Hsin Chan, Hsin-Fu Lee, +7 authors C. Kuo
- European heart journal cardiovascular Imaging
Aims The ratio of transmitral early filling velocity (E) to early diastolic tissue velocity (E′) is a key diastolic function parameter. The early diastolic strain rate (E′sr) has been proposed as a… Expand
Biplane assessment of left ventricular function during atrial fibrillation at beats with equal subsequent cycles.
- C. Wang, Wan-Jing Ho, N. Luqman, L. Hsu, C. Kuo
- International journal of cardiology
- 26 October 2006
BACKGROUND Prior study has demonstrated that the biplane single-beat method could be used to assess left ventricular function during atrial fibrillation at a beat with equal subsequent cycles. The… Expand
