To the Editor: We read with great interest the article 'Usefulness of pre-treatment neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio in predicting disease specific survival in breast cancer patients' by Noh et al. [1]. In the study, they aimed to investigate the prognostic impact of pretreatment neutrophil to lymphocyte (N/L) ratio on breast cancer in view of(More)
BACKGROUND Unconjugated bilirubin (UCB) plays a protective role in coronary artery disease. Red cell distribution width (RDW), neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio (NLR) and platelet to lymphocyte ratio (PLR) are inflammatory biomarkers and higher levels are related to atherosclerosis and adverse cardiovascular events. AIM We aimed to investigate the relation(More)
Emergent cardiac surgery during transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI): a weighted meta-analysis of 9,251 patients from 46 studies. Transcatheter aortic valve implantation: first results from a multi-centre real-world registry. Valve Registry (GARY): a nationwide registry for patients undergoing invasive therapy for severe aortic valve stenosis. We(More)
Dear Editor, We have read with great interest the recently published article titled, ''The relationship between hyperuricemia and the risk of contrast-induced nephropathy after percutaneous coronary intervention in patients with relatively normal serum creatinine'', by Yong Liu et al. (1). In that well-presented paper, the authors investigated the value of(More)
We read the article ''The effects of exercise modalities on adiposity in obese rats'' written by Guilherme Fleury Fina Speretta et al. with great interest (1). The authors concluded that both of the examined exercise modalities improved lipid profile, adiposity and obesity-associated inflammation in rats, suggesting their use as an alternative to control(More)
Sir, We read with great interest the article 'Elevated preoperative neutrophil/lymphocyte ratio is associated with poor prognosis in soft-tissue sarcoma patients' by Szkandera et al (2013). They aimed to investigate the prognostic relevance of preoperative neutrophil/ lymphocyte (N/L) ratio on time to tumour recurrence (TTR) and overall survival (OS) in(More)
We faithfully read the article "General and Gender Characteristics of Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus Among the Younger and Older Age Groups" written by Samir Burhanaldin Al-Mukhtar et al. with a great interest. 1 The authors concluded that younger type 2 diabetics (<60 years), particularly females, had cardiovascular risk factors in significantly higher rates;(More)
