Idiopathic paroxysmal ventricular tachycardia with a QRS pattern of right bundle branch block and left axis deviation: a unique clinical entity with specific properties.
Electrophysiologic evaluation before and after the serial administration of verapamil, lidocaine, propranolol, and procainamide was undertaken in 4 young, asymptomatic patients with recurrent,Expand
Determinants of simultaneous fast and slow pathway conduction in patients with dual atrioventricular nodal pathways.
Double His bundle and ventricular responses to a single atrial impulse caused by a simultaneous fast and slow pathway conduction was observed during electrophysiologic study in three patients withExpand
Acute Kidney Injury Biomarkers for Patients in a Coronary Care Unit: A Prospective Cohort Study
Background Renal dysfunction is an established predictor of all-cause mortality in intensive care units. This study analyzed the outcomes of coronary care unit (CCU) patients and evaluated severalExpand
Metabolic Syndrome and Homocysteine Level as Predictors of the Severity of Coronary Artery Disease in Patients With Carotid Stenosis
Background:Coronary artery disease (CAD) is the most important cause of mortality and morbidity in patients who have undergone carotid artery endovascular or surgical intervention. Metabolic syndromeExpand
Successful radiofrequency ablation of idiopathic left ventricular tachycardia at a site away from the tachycardia exit.
OBJECTIVES This study sought to assess the possibility of ablating verapamil-responsive idiopathic left ventricular tachycardia at a site distant from the tachycardia exit and thus to define theExpand
Termination of paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia with a single oral dose of diltiazem and propranolol.
The efficacy of a single oral dose combination of 120 mg diltiazem and 160 mg propranolol in terminating paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia (PSVT) was evaluated in 15 patients. All 15 patientsExpand
Spontaneous intramyocardial hematoma mimicking a cardiac tumor of the right ventricle.
Intramyocardial hematoma is an uncommon entity and may occur after myocardial infarction, coronary balloon angioplasty, cardiac operation, or chest trauma. It has even been noted to occurExpand
Radiofrequency ablation therapy in idiopathic left ventricular tachycardia with no obvious structural heart disease.
BACKGROUND The feasibility and efficacy of radiofrequency ablation therapy in idiopathic left ventricular tachycardia has not been assessed in a large group of patients. METHODS AND RESULTS TwentyExpand
Increased Vascular Senescence and Impaired Endothelial Progenitor Cell Function Mediated by Mutation of Circadian Gene Per2
Background— Alteration of the circadian rhythm and increased vascular senescence are linked to cardiovascular disease. Per2, a circadian gene, is known to regulate endothelium-dependent vasomotion.Expand
Nature of dual atrioventricular node pathways and the tachycardia circuit as defined by radiofrequency ablation technique.
OBJECTIVES A comprehensive electrophysiologic study followed by selective radiofrequency ablation from three sites was performed in patients with atrioventricular (AV) node reentrant tachycardia toExpand
