BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES A higher neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio (NLR) has been associated with poor clinical outcomes in various cardiac diseases. However, the clinical availability of NLR in patients with ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) undergoing primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) has not been known. We evaluated the(More)
BACKGROUND The prevalence and clinical significance of white-coat hypertension (WCHT) and masked hypertension (MHT) are unknown in Koreans. Here we measure the frequency of WCHT and MHT in hypertensive subjects and identify the epidemiologic and/or clinical factors that predict it in Korean subjects. METHODS This study is a retrospective analysis of a(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS Impaired responsiveness to clopidogrel is common in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM). The aim of this study was to evaluate the clinical application of a point-of-care assay to detect impaired responsiveness to clopidogrel after coronary stent implantation in patients with type 2 DM. METHODS We measured P2Y12 reaction units(More)

This paper presents a novel method to design a tri-band rat-race coupler by using resonators in S-shaped structure. The proposed structure demonstrates tri-band performance and a compact size due to S-shaped structure. In order to achieve tri-band operation, we use resonators and stubs with conventional rat-race coupler structure. By sharing the stub with(More)
Traumatic tricuspid regurgitation is a rare complication of blunt chest trauma. With the increase in the number of automobile accidents, traumatic tricuspid regurgitation has become an important problem after blunt chest trauma. It has been reported more frequently because of better diagnostic procedures and a better understanding of the pathology. The(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Increased bleeding rates with standard dose prasugrel have led to increased questions about the effectiveness and safety of the lower maintenance dose. We compared platelet inhibitory efficacy between low dose prasugrel and standard dose clopidogrel in patients on maintenance dose dual antiplatelet therapy. SUBJECTS AND METHODS(More)
BACKGROUND Despite guideline recommendations, a significant number of patients with non-ST elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI) do not receive dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) before angiography "pretreatment." While there may be valid clinical reasons to not pretreat, such as concern for bleeding or multivessel disease warranting coronary artery bypass(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Intravascular ultrasound (IVUS)-guided percutaneous coronary intervention frequently results in unnecessary stenting due to the low positive predictive value of IVUS-derived minimal lumen area (MLA) for identification of functionally significant coronary stenosis. We appraised the diagnostic accuracy of IVUS-derived MLA compared(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS The Taxus Liberte stent (Boston Scientific Co.) evolved from the Taxus Express stent, with enhanced stent deliverability and uniform drug delivery. This study was designed to compare angiographic and clinical outcomes in real-world practice between the Taxus Liberte and Taxus Express stents. METHODS Between 2006 and 2008, 240 patients(More)
Limited data are available on the long-term clinical efficacy of drug-eluting stent (DES) in diffuse long lesions. From May 2006 to May 2007, a total of 335 consecutive patients (374 lesions) were underwent percutaneous coronary intervention with implantation of long DES (≥ 30 mm) in real world practice. Eight-month angiographic outcomes and 2-yr clinical(More)
