Cystathionine beta-synthase (CBS) deficiency is an autosomal recessive disorder associated with multisystem clinical disease. We analyzed PCR amplified products from patients' RNA and genomic DNA. Direct sequencing of the entire coding region of the CBS gene revealed a G-919 to A transition in exon 8, resulting in replacement of Gly 307 by Ser (G307S) in(More)
Little is known about the outcome of catheter ablation of atrial fibrillation (AF) in patients with diabetes mellitus (DM). We investigated the safety and efficacy of catheter ablation of AF in patients with DM. Thirty one patients with DM from a group of 263 consecutive patients undergoing a first-time catheter ablation of AF procedure were enrolled in a(More)
To study the clinical efficacy of catheter ablation for treating patients with hyperthyroidism-related atrial fibrillation (AF). The study involved 16 patients (12 males; age, 59.8 ± 11.3 years) with hyperthyroidism-related AF, who had all been euthyroid for more than 3 months but still suffered from highly symptomatic and antiarrhythmia drug(More)
BACKGROUND Radiofrequency catheter ablation (RFCA) for curing atrial fibrillation (AF) is often followed by early recurrence and delayed cure, so the present study investigate the predictive factors this in patients with chronic AF. METHODS AND RESULTS Ninety-two consecutive patients (70 males; mean age, 58.7+/-6.4 years) with chronic AF who underwent(More)
