The American College of Cardiology Foundation (ACCF), Society for Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions, Society of Thoracic Surgeons, and the American Association for Thoracic Surgery, along with key specialty and subspecialty societies, conducted an update of the appropriate use criteria (AUC) for coronary revascularization frequently considered.(More)
The technique of rapid evaporation of whole urine to standard osmolality has been studied further and quantitative measurements made of the calcium oxalate crystals resulting, firstly by a microscope method and secondly by isotope method using 14C-oxalate. It is confirmed that ultrafiltration of urine prior to evaporation leads to a large reduction in(More)
BACKGROUND No published data have systematically documented pulmonary artery pressure over an intermediate time period after submassive pulmonary embolism (PE). The aim of this work was to document the rate of pulmonary hypertension, as assessed noninvasively by estimated right ventricular systolic pressure (RVSP) of >or= 40 mm Hg 6 months after the(More)
BACKGROUND Although echocardiography has proven utility in risk stratifying normotensive patients with pulmonary embolism, echocardiography is not always available. OBJECTIVE Test if a novel panel consisting of pulse oximetry, 12-lead electrocardiography, and serum troponin T would have prognostic equivalence to echocardiography and to examine the(More)
BACKGROUND Appropriate patient selection for surgical repair of the mitral valve depends on the specific location and mechanism of regurgitation, which, in turn, has necessitated a more detailed method to accurately describe mitral pathology. This study tests a strategy of using multiplane transesophageal echocardiography to systematically localize mitral(More)
BACKGROUND Mitral-valve repair can be accomplished with an investigational procedure that involves the percutaneous implantation of a clip that grasps and approximates the edges of the mitral leaflets at the origin of the regurgitant jet. METHODS We randomly assigned 279 patients with moderately severe or severe (grade 3+ or 4+) mitral regurgitation in a(More)
An enzymatic assay for the measurement of glycollate in urine and plasma is described. Gycollic acid oxidase (glycollate:oxygen oxidoreductase, EC 1.1.3), extracted from spinach leaves, is used in the enzymatic oxidation of glycollate to produce glyoxylate and hydrogen peroxide. In the presence of peroxidase, the hydrogen peroxide oxidatively couples(More)
