BACKGROUND The aim of the present study was to perform a preliminary evaluation of the potential association between platelet distribution width (PDW) and frequency of major adverse cardiovascular events (MACEs) development in an observational study of acute coronary syndrome (ACS) patients. METHODS A total of 679 consecutive patients with ACS (498(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim was to study transradial approach (TRA) and transfemoral approach (TFA) in terms of feasibility, effectiveness, usefulness, and procedure characteristics in patients having ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) and undergoing primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). Along with the said aim, major adverse(More)
BACKGROUND The association between epicardial fat thickness (EFT) and positive exercise test results for the diagnosis of coronary artery diseases (CAD) has yet to be evaluated. This study assessed the predictive value of EFT for CAD on the angiographs of patients with positive exercise tests. METHODS A total of 91 subjects were chosen consecutively from(More)
OBJECTIVE Recent studies have shown that the pulmonary veins are important in atrial fibrillation (AF). This study evaluated the relationship between total pulmonary vein diameter and postoperative AF in on-pump coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) patients. PATIENTS AND METHODS Our study enrolled 149 patients undergoing on-pump CABG. The primary endpoint(More)
OBJECTIVE This study evaluated the transradial approach for its ability to diagnose coronary artery anomalies, its requirement for catheter usage, the number of images obtained and fluoroscopy time required. PATIENTS AND METHODS A total of 11,707 patients' coronary angiograph reports from January 2009 to January 2016 were evaluated with 179 patients(More)
OBJECTIVE Coronary artery ectasia (CAE) is defined as abnormal dilatation of coronary arteries. Inflammation is thought to be important in the pathogenesis of CAE. Red blood cell distribution width (RDW) is also an inflammatory marker. In this study, we examined the association between RDW levels and CAE severity. PATIENTS AND METHODS A total of 6737(More)
Mean platelet volume (MPV) is an indicator of platelet activation that is elevated in patients with coronary artery ectasia (CAE). We aimed to research relationship between MPV and the severity of coronary ectasia. The reports of 6,377 patients who underwent elective coronary angiography screening between January 2011 and January 2015 were reviewed. After(More)
