BACKGROUND We have observed 3 abnormal patterns on contrast-enhanced MRI early after reperfused myocardial infarction (MI): (1) absence of normal first-pass signal enhancement (HYPO), (2) normal first pass signal followed by hyperenhanced signal on delayed images (HYPER), or (3) both absence of normal first-pass enhancement and delayed hyperenhancement(More)
OBJECTIVES This study was designed to determine noninvasively the age-associated changes in regional mechanical properties in normals using phase-contrast magnetic resonance imaging (PCMRI). BACKGROUND It has been well documented that there is a progressive increase in aortic pulse wave velocity (PWV) with age. Previously, PWV has been measured at a(More)
BACKGROUND Cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) has excellent capabilities to assess ventricular systolic function. Current clinical scenarios warrant routine evaluation of ventricular diastolic function for complete evaluation, especially in congestive heart failure patients. To our knowledge, no systematic assessment of diastolic function over a range(More)
BACKGROUND In compensated aortic stenosis (AS), cardiac performance measured at the ventricular chamber is typically supranormal, whereas measurements at the myocardium are often impaired. We investigated intramyocardial mechanics after aortic valve replacement (AVR) and the effects relative to the presence or absence of coronary artery disease (CAD+ or(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the independent and interactive effects of depression and anxiety symptoms as predictors of cardiovascular disease (CVD) events in a sample of women with suspected myocardial ischemia. Symptoms of depression and anxiety overlap strongly and are independent predictors of CVD events. Although these symptoms commonly co-occur in medical(More)
UNLABELLED High triglycerides (TG) and low high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) are important cardiovascular risk factors in women. The prognostic utility of the TG/HDL-C ratio, a marker for insulin resistance and small dense low-density lipoprotein particles, is unknown among high-risk women. METHODS We studied 544 women without prior myocardial(More)
BACKGROUND Modifiable risk factors for cardiovascular disease (CVD) account for much of the variability in CVD outcomes and are also related to psychosocial variables. There is evidence that depression can undermine the treatment and advance the progression of CVD risk factors, suggesting that CVD risk factor relationships with CVD events may differ among(More)
OBJECTIVES This study evaluated 3 novel questions in a prospective clinical cohort of women undergoing evaluation for suspected myocardial ischemia: 1) What is the relationship between depression and cardiovascular costs? 2) Does the relationship vary by definition of depression? 3) Do depression-cost relationship patterns differ among women with versus(More)
AIMS Our goal was to evaluate health-related quality of life (QOL) in women undergoing angiography for suspected ischaemia. METHODS AND RESULTS QOL measurements were obtained in 406 women with chest pain symptoms in the Women's Ischemia Syndrome Evaluation (WISE). QOL measures included a general rating (GR), Duke Activity Status Index (DASI), and the Beck(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the association between self-rated health and major cardiovascular events in a sample of women with suspected myocardial ischemia. Previous studies showed that self-rated health is a predictor of objective health outcomes, such as mortality. METHOD At baseline, 900 women rated their health on a 5-point scale ranging from poor to(More)
