Close relation of endothelial function in the human coronary and peripheral circulations.
OBJECTIVES The relation between endothelium-dependent vasodilator function in the brachial and coronary arteries was determined in the same subjects. BACKGROUND Coronary artery endothelialExpand
Overflow of catecholamine neurotransmitters to the circulation: source, fate, and functions.
Article de synthese sur l'efflux des neurotransmetteurs catecholaminergiques chez les mammiferes. Origine des catecholamines: la noradrenaline, l'adrenaline et la dopamine dans le plasma et l'urine.Expand
Polymer-free Drug-Coated Coronary Stents in Patients at High Bleeding Risk.
BACKGROUND Patients at high risk for bleeding who undergo percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) often receive bare-metal stents followed by 1 month of dual antiplatelet therapy. We studied aExpand
Evaluation of the second generation of a bioresorbable everolimus-eluting vascular scaffold for the treatment of de novo coronary artery stenosis: 12-month clinical and imaging outcomes.
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to demonstrate that the prevention of early scaffold area shrinkage of the ABSORB BVS (Rev.1.1, Abbott Vascular, Santa Clara, California) was sustained and notExpand
Safety and efficacy outcomes of first and second generation durable polymer drug eluting stents and biodegradable polymer biolimus eluting stents in clinical practice: comprehensive network
Objectives To investigate the safety and efficacy of durable polymer drug eluting stents (DES) and biodegradable polymer biolimus eluting stents (biolimus-ES). Design Network meta-analysis ofExpand
Epicardial adipose tissue: far more than a fat depot.
Epicardial adipose tissue (EAT) refers to the fat depot that exists on the surface of the myocardium and is contained entirely beneath the pericardium, thus surrounding and in direct contact with theExpand
Clinical and angiographic results with the next-generation resolute stent system: a prospective, multicenter, first-in-human trial.
OBJECTIVES The RESOLUTE trial examined the safety and efficacy of a next-generation zotarolimus-eluting coronary stent, Resolute (Medtronic CardioVascular Inc., Santa Rosa, California). BACKGROUNDExpand
Transluminal attenuation gradient in coronary computed tomography angiography is a novel noninvasive approach to the identification of functionally significant coronary artery stenosis: a comparison
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to assess the diagnostic accuracy of TAG320 in predicting functional stenosis severity evaluated by fractional flow reserve (FFR). BACKGROUND CoronaryExpand
Combined CT coronary angiography and stress myocardial perfusion imaging for hemodynamically significant stenoses in patients with suspected coronary artery disease: a comparison with fractional flow
OBJECTIVES We sought to determine the accuracy of combined coronary computed tomography angiography (CTA) and computed tomography stress myocardial perfusion imaging (CTP) in the detection ofExpand
Acute and chronic effects of flavanol-rich cocoa on vascular function in subjects with coronary artery disease: a randomized double-blind placebo-controlled study.
Evidence suggests that flavonoid-containing diets reduce cardiovascular risk, but the mechanisms responsible are unclear. In the present study, we sought to determine the effect of flavanol-richExpand
