Effects of pantoprazole and esomeprazole on platelet inhibition by clopidogrel.
BACKGROUND Clopidogrel is activated by CYP2C19, which also metabolizes proton pump inhibitors (PPI). As proton pump inhibitors are metabolized to varying degrees by CYP2C19, we hypothesized that theExpand

Prognostic value of heart rate variability in patients awaiting cardiac transplantation.
Time and frequency domain parameters of heart rate variability (HRV) were determined in patients with severe endstage heart failure awaiting cardiac transplantation (HTX). These parameters were thenExpand

Significance of morphological abnormalities detected by MRI in patients undergoing successful ablation of right ventricular outflow tract tachycardia.
BACKGROUND MRI can demonstrate subtle morphological changes of the right ventricle in patients with idiopathic right ventricular outflow tract tachycardia (RVOT). The present study examines theExpand

Improvement in left ventricular systolic function after successful radiofrequency His bundle ablation for drug refractory, chronic atrial fibrillation and recurrent atrial flutter.
Incessant supraventricular tachyarrhythmia may lead to a reversible impairment of left ventricular (LV) function. This issue was investigated in 10 patients (aged 64 +/- 13 years) who underwentExpand

Effect of slow pathway ablation on ventricular rate during atrial fibrillation. Dependence on electrophysiological properties of the fast pathway.
BACKGROUND Catheter ablation of the posteroseptal right atrium has been proposed for control of ventricular rate in patients with tachycardic atrial fibrillation (AF). However, the exact mechanism ofExpand

Hemodynamic and hemorheologic determinants of left atrial spontaneous echo contrast and thrombus formation in patients with idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy.
The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the specific role of hemorheologic and hemodynamic parameters for spontaneous echo contrast and thrombus formation in vivo. We therefore investigatedExpand

Myocardial m-[123I]Iodobenzylguanidine Scintigraphy for the Assessment of Adrenergic Cardiac Innervation in Patients With IDDM: Comparison With Cardiovascular Reflex Tests and Relationship to Left
Cardiac imaging using m-[123I]iodobenzylguanidine (mIBG) reflects sympathetic myocardial innervation. In patients with insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM), the following were studied: 1) theExpand
