Background: Our aim was to study the serum pepsinogen levels in gastric cancer patients in our population in relation to histology and the presence of Helicobacter pylori . Methods: Forty-six patients with gastric cancer and 70 controls were studied prospectively in a 1-year period. Serum levels of pepsinogen I (PG I), pepsinogen II (PG II), and gastrin(More)
BACKGROUND Presence of prominent left ventricular trabeculation satisfying criteria for left ventricular noncompaction (LVNC) on routine cardiac magnetic resonance examination is frequently encountered; however, the clinical and prognostic significance of these findings remain elusive. This registry aimed to assess LVNC prevalence by 4 current criteria and(More)
Background Right Atrial Volume Indexed (RAVI) measured by echocardiogram was identified to be an independent predictor of morbidity in patients with heart failure (HF) with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF). Meta-Analysis Global Group in Chronic heart failure (MAGGIC) risk score is a robust tool in predicting mortality in HF patients. The aim of this study(More)
BACKGROUND Right Atrial Volume Index (RAVI) measured by echocardiography is an independent predictor of morbidity in patients with heart failure (HF) with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF). The aim of this study is to evaluate the predictive value of RAVI assessed by cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) for all-cause mortality in patients with HFrEF and to(More)
CONTEXT Over the past three decades, industry sponsored research expanded in the United States. Financial incentives can lead to potential conflicts of interest (COI) resulting in underreporting of negative study results. OBJECTIVE We hypothesized that over the three decades, there would be an increase in: a) reporting of conflict of interest and source(More)
