BACKGROUND The role of cardiac troponin I (cTnI) is well established in acute myocardial ischemia. However, its role in myocardial contusion remains to be clarified. Since transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) appears, at present, to be the best method for the diagnosis of myocardial contusion, the aim of this study was to measure the concentration of cTnI(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate renal Doppler resistive index in patients with mild to moderate essential hypertension (EH) and to correlate its changes with the presence of left ventricular hypertrophy assessed by echocardiography. Twenty-eight EH patients (19 males, 9 females, mean age 56.2 +/- 8.6 years) and 13 normotensive subjects (7 males, 6(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to assess the utility of Doppler echocardiography both at rest and during isotonic exercise in evaluating competition eligibility of patients with repaired coarctation of the aorta (CoAo). METHODS Seventeen young patients (11 male, 6 female; mean age 17.1 +/- 7.9 years) with previous surgical repair of CoAo were(More)
