Comparison of demographic factors and cardiovascular risk factor control among U.S. adults with type 2 diabetes by insulin treatment classification.
AIMS Data on glucose and cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk factor control among persons with type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM) according to insulin treatment status are lacking. We examined DM control,Expand

Utility of cardiac MRI in determining percutaneous versus surgical post-infarction ventricular septal defect repair.
AIM Postmyocardial infarction ventricular septal defect (VSD) is a rare complication that can lead to rapid hemodynamic patient decompensation. The type of VSD repair relies on several factorsExpand
Distinguishing aortic valve thrombus from Libman-Sacks endocarditis in antiphospholipid syndrome: imaging and management.
Aortic valve (AV) thrombus, a rare complication of antiphospholipid syndrome (APLS), is important to distinguish from Libman-Sacks endocarditis because of its responsiveness to anticoagulation. ThisExpand
POST-MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION LEFT VENTRICULAR APICAL ANEURYSM POSES CHALLENGES FOR AICD LEAD REVISION
Differential diagnoses of extensive dystrophic cardiac calcification include: ischemia, trauma, infectious, inflammatory, neoplastic, drug induced, or pulmonary hypertension. 58 year old man withExpand
METABOLICALLY HEALTHY AND UNHEALTHY OBESITY AND CHANGES IN LEFT VENTRICULAR MASS, VOLUME AND FUNCTION BY CARDIAC MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING: RESULTS FROM THE MULTI-ETHNIC STUDY OF ATHEROSCLEROSIS
Adverse metabolic factors, even in the absence of obesity, have been shown to predict cardiovascular disease (CVD). We evaluated how metabolically healthy and unhealthy obesity relate to longitudinalExpand
