BACKGROUND Peroxynitrite (ONOO(-)) has been implicated as a primary mediator in the deleterious effects of nitric oxide (NO) in crystalloid solutions, possibly due to a lack of detoxification mechanisms, leading to the formation of.OH. In contrast, ONOO(-) may exert cardioprotective effects in blood environments secondary to detoxification and the(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES The purposes of this study are 1) to investigate the relationship between resting baseline Pd/Pa, determined by the ratio of the pressures proximal (Pa) and distal (Pd) to the target lesion before, inducing hyperemia and fractional flow reserve (FFR) and 2) to identify a resting baseline Pd/Pa range that might reliably preclude the(More)
BACKGROUND In the general population, the incidence of bundle branch block (BBB) is relatively low, and its effects on long-term prognosis have not been established. Previous studies on the incidence and correlation of BBB to clinical factors have produced conflicting results. However, the incidence of BBB was strongly related to age. This study aimed to(More)
BACKGROUND Various studies have reported that the administration of adenosine (ADO) in cardioplegia reduces myocardial ischemic injury, but this timing may not utilize ADO's potential against myocardial reperfusion injury. This study tested the hypothesis that ADO-supplemented blood cardioplegia (BCP) or ADO administered during reperfusion reduces(More)
A 41-year-old man was admitted to the emergency department for sudden-onset right hemiparesis. He had no history of diabetes mellitus, hypertension, arrhythmias, or stroke. However, he had a 20-year history of smoking, dyslipidemias, and hypothyroidism (laboratory test on admission revealed elevated thyrotropin [13.16 ␮IU/mL; reference, 0.27 to 4.2], normal(More)
