To evaluate the role of lipoprotein(a) (Lp(a] in patients with cerebrovascular disease (CVD), lipid parameters were compared with a control group (CO). Additionally, the Lp(a) serum levels were investigated in a coronary artery disease (CAD) group. The CO was made up of 37 healthy persons (age: 54.5 +/- 7.7, 26 males and 11 females), the CVD group included(More)
Using transesophageal echocardiography, cardiac structures can be imaged with high resolution. The aim of our study was to evaluate whether transesophageal echocardiography is superior in detecting mitral valve prolapse and other cardiac abnormalities compared with transthoracic echocardiography in an age-matched control group and in young patients with(More)
In the mid 90's a fundamental new Machine Learning approach was developed by V. N. Vapnik: The Support Vector Machine (SVM). This new method can be regarded as a very promising approach and is getting more and more attention in the elds where neural networks and decision tree methods are applied. Whilst neural networks may be considered (correctly or not)(More)
3 out of 24 patients with mitral valve prolapse (MVP), mean age 25.7 +/- 3.1 displayed markedly thickened redundant and shaggy mitral leaflets in the two-dimensional echocardiogram. The anterior leaflet appeared in the parasternal long axis plane club-shaped in diastole. These three female patients had a history of ischemic stroke, which could be verified(More)
