BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES We evaluated the prevalence of gastroesophageal reflux diseases (GERD) in noncardiac chest pain (NCCP) patients, risk factors for GERD, and status of prescriptions for GERD in Korean population. SUBJECTS AND METHODS This was a retrospective non-interventional observational nation-wide 45-center study. Patients with a normal(More)
RESULTS There were 1,654 patients in the early discharge group. They were younger than the standard group (60 12 vs 63 13 years; p1⁄40.001) and more likely to be male (81% vs 59%; p1⁄40.001). The early group were less likely to have diabetes (14% vs 18%; p1⁄40.001), there Zwolle score was also less (2.1 1.9 vs 2.8 2.3; p1⁄40.001). The mean length of stay(More)
BACKGROUND The goal of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in stable coronary disease is to improve quality of life (QoL). Historically, technical success in chronic total occlusion (CTO) PCI has been defined by angiographic surrogates including final TIMI flow (FTF) of 3 and residual stenosis (RS) 30% which have never been validated with respect to(More)

L-transposition of the great arteries (L-TGA) is a rare congenital anomaly and could cause complete atrioventricular (AV) block at relatively younger age. We present a case of 43-year-old male who complained of dizziness due to complete AV block. We confirmed L-TGA using transthoracic echocardiography and cardiac computed tomography. Permanent pacemaker was(More)

RESULTS Twenty subjects (10 SES x 10 BMS) were included in this analysis. Baseline characteristics were similar in both groups. After higher-dose Ach infusion, there was no difference in percentage variation of proximal (BMS: -0.002þ 0.067% vs SES: -0.009þ 0.187%, p1⁄40.040), reference (BMS: -0.030 þ 0.069% vs SES: -0.022 þ 0.049%, p1⁄40.54) and distal mean(More)
