BACKGROUND Miyoshi myopathy (MM) is an autosomal recessive distal myopathy characterized by early adult onset. Cardiomyopathy is a major clinical manifestation in other muscular dystrophies and an important prognostic factor. Although dysferlin is highly expressed in cardiac muscle, the effect of dysferlin deficiency in cardiac muscle has not been studied.(More)
BACKGROUND Osteopontin (OPN) and carbonic anhydrase IX (CAIX), which are expressed on the surface of tumor cells, are associated with hypoxia during tumor development and progression. However, the roles of these proteins in the plasma of patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) are poorly understood. Herein, we hypothesized that plasma OPN and CAIX(More)
PURPOSE In some patients with an implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD), multiple episodes of electrical storm (ES) can occur. We assessed the prevalence, features, and predictors of ES in patients with ICD. MATERIALS AND METHODS Eighty-five patients with an ICD were analyzed. ES was defined as the occurrence of two or more ventricular(More)
It is known that blood pressure variability (BPV) can independently affect target organ damage (TOD), even with normal blood pressure. There have been few studieson chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients. We evaluated the relationship between BPV and TOD in a cross-sectional, multicenter study on hypertensive CKD patients. We evaluated 1,173 patients using(More)
BACKGROUND Although there were studies about ethnic differences in aortic valve thickness and calcification that they may play a role in aortic valvular stenosis (AVS) progression, few studies about the progression rate of AVS in Asian population have been reported. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the progression rate of AVS in Korean patients. (More)
A 77-year-old man visited our hospital complaining of aggravated exertional chest pain. He was diagnosed with syndrome X 7 years ago and underwent medical treatment in a regional hospital. Coronary angiography and echocardiography did not show any significant abnormalities. On the seventh in-hospital day, cardiogenic shock developed and echocardiography(More)
Echocardiography is now considered a standard diagnostic tool that enables the noninvasive quantification of cardiac chamber size, ventricular mass, and systolic function in various clinical situations. Technological progress in Doppler echocardiog-raphy has enabled the provision of hemodynamic information and the assessment of valvular heart disease and(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS Ambulatory blood pressure (BP) monitoring has been widely recommended for evaluating the status of BP, but is lacking in practicality. Determination of the specific time points for BP measurement that are representative of 24-hour mean BP could be useful and convenient in hypertensive patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). METHODS A(More)
stress-induced cardio-myopathy (SCMP) also called Takotsubo cardiomyopathy, transient left ventricular apical ballooning, or broken heart syndrome, has been increasingly recognized. SCMP is characterized by transient mid-and apical-segment left ventricular dysfunction in the absence of significant angiographic coronary stenosis, and it primarily affects(More)
