BACKGROUND Measurement of right ventricular (RV) systolic function is important for patients with acute pulmonary embolism (PE). However, assessment of RV function is a challenge due to its complex anatomy. We measured RV systolic function with analysis of tricuspid annular motion in acute PE patients. METHODS From August 2007 to May 2011, all consecutive(More)
Ocular diseases, such as, glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration (AMD), diabetic retinopathy, and retinitis pigmentosa require drug management in order to prevent blindness and affecting million of adults in USA and worldwide. There is an increasing need to develop devices for drug delivery to address ocular diseases. This study focuses on the design,(More)
BACKGROUND Excessive catecholamine release in pheochromocytoma is known to cause transient reversible left ventricular (LV) dysfunction, such as in the case of pheochromocytoma-associated catecholamine cardiomyopathy. We investigated patterns of clinical presentation and incidence of LV dysfunction in patients with pheochromocytoma. METHODS From January(More)
PURPOSE Infection with Helicobacter pylori is an important risk factor for gastric cancer in humans. We compared the clinicopathologic features of gastric cancer patients based on H. pylori infection. MATERIALS AND METHODS We prospectively studied 155 patients who had gastric cancer and underwent gastrectomies in 1 hospital in Korea. We examined H. pylori(More)
The exact pathogenesis of transient mid- and basal ventricular ballooning, a new variant of transient left ventricular (LV) ballooning, remains unknown. We report two cases of transient mid- and basal ventricular ballooning associated with catecholamines. These cases suggest that catecholamine-mediated myocardial dysfunction might be a potential mechanism(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Apurinic/apyrimidinic endonuclease 1/redox effector factor-1 (APE1/Ref-1) is a multifunctional protein involved in the DNA base excision repair pathway, inflammation, angiogenesis, and survival pathways. We investigated serum APE1/Ref-1 in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD). SUBJECTS AND METHODS Serum APE1/Ref-1 was(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES The comparison of long-term clinical effects between Sirolimus-eluting stent (SES) and Paclitaxel-eluting stents (PES) for treatment of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) remains unclear. Seeking to clarify this issue, we performed a retrospective analysis to evaluate four-year clinical outcomes of SES compared to PES treated AMI(More)
Atrial septal defect (ASD) is one of the most common types of congenital heart disease in adults [1]. Surgical closure has been accepted as the standard treatment for clinically significant ASD; however, in ostium secundum ASD, catheter-based closure could be an alternative option. The first case of transcatheter ASD repair was reported in 1974 by King et(More)
Ventricular septal defect (VSD) is a lethal complication of myocardial infarction. The event occurs 2-8 days after an infarction and patients should undergo emergency surgical treatment. We report on successful device closure of post-infarction VSD. A previously healthy 66-year-old male was admitted with aggravated dyspnea. Echocardiography showed moderate(More)
