OBJECTIVES In the Euroinject One phase II randomized double-blind trial, therapeutic angiogenesis of percutaneous intramyocardial plasmid gene transfer of vascular endothelial growth factor (phVEGF-A(165)) on myocardial perfusion, left ventricular function, and clinical symptoms was assessed. BACKGROUND Evidence for safety and treatment efficacy have been(More)
BACKGROUND To evaluate initial multicenter results with minimally invasive transapical aortic valve implantation (TAP-AVI) for high risk patients with aortic stenosis. METHODS AND RESULTS TAP-AVI was performed via a small anterolateral minithoracotomy with or without femoro-femoral extracorporeal circulation (ECC) on the beating heart. A pericardial(More)
Flow-mediated vasodilation (FMD) of systemic arteries, a non-invasive parameter of endothelial function, is correlated with cardiovascular risk factors. The relationship between FMD and morphologically and clinically evident coronary artery disease has not been described. This study was performed to test the hypothesis that an impairment of FMD in the(More)
AIMS The aim of the ReoPro-BRIDGING Austrian multi-centre study was to investigate the effects of abciximab (ReoPro) on early reperfusion in ST-elevation myocardial infarction prior to or during primary percutaneous coronary angioplasty (pPCI). METHODS AND RESULTS Fifty-five patients with STEMI were randomized either to start abciximab (0.25 mg/kg bolus(More)
Since 1980 cardiac manifestations of Lyme borreliosis have been described as selflimited conduction and transient left ventricular disorders or even cardiomegaly. An etiologic role of Borrelia burgdorferi in long-standing chronic heart disturbances is suggested by the cultivation of a strain of Borrelia burgdorferi which we were able to isolate from an(More)
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the thoracic aorta, including cine-MRI, was performed in 25 patients suspected of having dissection of the thoracic aorta. MRI was correlated with echocardiography, CT and angiography. The sensitivity of MRI (100%) was most closely followed by CT and angiography (83% and 77% respectively). The specificity of MRI and(More)
BACKGROUND Porcine bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) were stably transfected with a lentiviral vector for transgene expression of the trifusion protein renilla luciferase, red fluorescent protein and herpes simplex truncated thymidine kinase (LV-RL-RFP-tTK; positron emission tomography [PET] reporter gene) for in vivo noninvasive tracking of(More)

OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to perform an investigation of the effects of the longitudinal straightening of coronary arteries by stents and the possible association with major adverse cardiac events (MACE) (primary end point) and angiographic restenosis (secondary end point). BACKGROUND Stent deployment straightens a tortuous artery, and any(More)
AIMS This study was designed to investigate the role of inflammation on the occurrence of angiographic restenosis 6 months after coronary stent implantation and the influence of different kinds of antithrombotic and antiplatelet strategies on inflammation. METHODS AND RESULTS In an open randomized trial, 40 consecutive patients were treated with aspirin(More)
