The objective of the present study was to evaluate the effect of a six-month Tai Chi (TC) exercise cardiac rehabilitation program on two prognostic factors of cardiac events, rate-pressure product and rate-pressure product reserve, in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD). Patients (N = 54) with CAD were recruited from the clinics of cardiology and(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of the present study was to describe our experience with myocardial infarction with normal coronary arteries (MINCA) with regards to the prevalence, clinical characteristics, possible underlying etiologies (including Takotsubo cardiomyopathy, TCM) and the short- and long-term outcomes associated with this condition. METHODS We(More)
Iatrogenic aortic dissection caused by coronary angiography or angioplasty is a rare but potentially life-threatening complication. Awareness of the complication and its prompt recognition are important. We describe a 78-year-old woman who underwent coronary angioplasty for acute non-ST elevation myocardial infarction. An ostial dissection of the right(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of this study was to evaluate the effect of t'ai chi (TC) on heart rate variability (HRV) from baseline to 9 months in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD). DESIGN A comparative trial was undertaken comparing the acute and long-term effect of TC on HRV in patients with CAD. PARTICIPANTS Sixty-one (61) subjects with CAD(More)
Transient mid-ventricular ballooning syndrome is a variant form of Takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TTC). The precipitating factors and clinical course are similar, and the clinical manifestations mimic those of acute coronary syndrome, which are characterized by transient left ventricular dysfunction without significant coronary artery disease. Takotsubo(More)
A 78-year-old woman presented to our emergency room because of complete atrioventricular block. The patient experienced significant psychophysical stress during pacemaker implantation due to fear of operation. Acute lung edema occurred four hours after permanent pacemaker implantation. Coronary angiography showed no significant coronary artery stenosis and(More)
