BACKGROUND We aimed to investigate the association between aortic arch and coronary artery calcification (CAC). We postulated that low- and high-risk CAC scores could be predicted with the evaluation of standard chest radiography for aortic arch calcification (AAC). PATIENTS AND METHODS Consecutive patients who were referred for a multidetector(More)
OBJECTIVES Arterial stiffness is associated with major adverse cardiovascular events. Chronic venous insufficiency (CVI) is severe form of chronic venous disease (CVD). The aim of this study is to investigate arterial stiffness by cardio-ankle vascular index (CAVI) in patients with CVI. METHODS This observational and cross-sectional study involved 87(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of two doses of heparin, a low dose (2500 IU) and a standard dose (5000 IU) in patients who underwent transradial coronary angiography (TRCAG). METHODS A total of 459 consecutive patients were included in the present study, 217 in the 2500-IU heparin group and 242 in the 5000-IU(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the oxidant-antioxidant balance in patients with abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA). Forty-two consecutive patients with AAA and 46 control subjects were included. Total oxidant status (TOS) and total antioxidant status (TAS) levels were measured and the oxidative stress index (OSI) value determined. Serum TOS and OSI(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of the present study was to investigate the association between nitrate-induced headache (NIH) and the complexity of coronary artery lesions in patients with stable coronary artery disease (CAD). SUBJECTS AND METHODS Two hundred and seventy-five patients with anginal chest pain who underwent coronary angiography were enrolled in the(More)
