BACKGROUND Several risk scores were developed for acute coronary syndrome (ACS) patients, but their use is limited by their complexity. PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to identify predictors at admission for in-hospital mortality in ACS patients in western Romania, using a simple risk-assessment tool - the new Canada acute coronary syndrome (C-ACS)(More)
Structure-toxicity relationships for a series of 75 azo and azo-anilide dyes and five diazonium salts were developed using Hydractinia echinata (H. echinata) as model species. In addition, based on these relationships, predictions for 58 other azo-dyes were made. The experimental results showed that the measured effectiveness Mlog(1/MRC50) does not depend(More)
Background: There are conflicting reports regarding the prognosis of heart failure patients with preserved (HFPSF) comparative to reduced systolic left ventricular function (HFRSF). We evaluated the clinical characteristics, mortality rates and modes of death in 309 consecutive symptomatic heart failure patients. In 133(56%) patients LVEF was <50% (HFRSF),(More)
Thrombospondin-1 (TSP-1) is a potent endogenous inhibitor of both physiological and pathological angiogenesis, widely studied as a target in drug development for treating cancer. Several studies performed in the cardiovascular field on TSP-1 are contradictory, the role of TSP-1 in the physiopathology of cardiovascular disorders (CVDs) being, for the moment,(More)
Left ventricular (LV) free wall rupture is a potentially lethal mechanical complication after myocardial infarction (MI). Pericardial adhesions or slow extracardiac leak and pericardial inflammation may result in a contained cardiac rupture. LV pseudoaneurysm is a relatively uncommon clinical entity. It may occur after MI, but also as a complication of(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this retrospective study was to evaluate the prognostic impact of systolic blood pressure (SBP) and heart rate (HR) on in-hospital mortality in ST-segment elevation acute myocardial infarction (STEMI) patients, after primary percutaneous intervention (PCI). PATIENTS AND METHODS The study included 294 patients admitted for STEMI.(More)
