BACKGROUND Cryoablation has emerged as an alternative to radiofrequency catheter ablation (RFCA) for the treatment of atrioventricular (AV) nodal reentrant tachycardia (AVNRT). The purpose of this prospective randomized study was to test whether cryoablation is as effective as RFCA during both short-term and long-term follow-up with a lower risk of(More)
It has been shown that patients with insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM) may reveal abnormal alterations in heart-rate variability (HRV) due to autonomic neuropathy. This study was performed to prove whether heart-rate variability can be used to stratify diabetic patients with different types of neuropathy. 48 patients with IDDM (age 17-64 yr)(More)
The transmitral flow velocity pattern of 28 Type 1 diabetic patients and 39 age-matched healthy control subjects was studied for determination of left ventricular diastolic function. No patient had systemic hypertension, congestive heart failure, or ischaemic heart disease by clinical or electrocardiographic criteria. Echocardiographic measures of systolic(More)
The work presented in this paper targets the software integration on the level of business process models. The goal is to create the behavioural description of an integrated system that is consistent with the behavioural descriptions of the original local systems intended to be integrated. We build the behavioural description from existing models of the(More)
Flow rate across an orifice can be determined from color Doppler echocardiographic maps of the flow convergence region proximal to the orifice. Different methods have been developed in vitro. The proximal velocity profile method was prospectively evaluated in patients with mitral regurgitation. Color Doppler echocardiography was performed in 74 patients(More)
AIMS To compare the value of the proximal flow convergence method and the jet area method for the determination of the severity of tricuspid regurgitation. METHODS AND RESULTS The proximal isovelocity surface area radius and the jet area/length were measured in 71 consecutive patients with angiographically graded (grade 0/I-III) tricuspid regurgitation.(More)
In 84 patients mitral regurgitation was quantified by angiography. The mechanism of regurgitation was determined by echocardiography (organic, n = 54, functional, n = 30). The radii of the proximal isovelocity surface areas in the flow convergence region for 28 and 41 cm.s-1 blood flow velocity and the area and length of the regurgitant jet were measured(More)
The Janus stent releases Tacrolimus from reservoirs located at the abluminal stent surface without any polymer. In stable coronary lesions the stent did not show relevant antiproliferative effects. Since Tacrolimus provides antiproliferative and antiinflammatory properties, we sought to investigate the efficacy of the Tacrolimus eluting Janus stent in acute(More)
