This study was designed to investigate the effect of low-dose nesiritide on renal function and major cardiac events in patients with acute decompensated heart failure following acute myocardial infarction. Sixty patients were randomized into nesiritide (loading dose 0.5 μg/kg, maintenance dose 0.0075 μg/kg/min) and nitroprusside groups. Compared with the(More)
OBJECTIVES Enhanced external counterpulsation (EECP) could improve endothelium-dependent vasodilatation of carotid artery and restore imbalance of nitric oxide and endothein-1 in patients with coronary artery disease. Our study was designed to test the hypothesis that long-term EECP may protect vascular endothelial cells from apoptosis by modifying(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the effect of long-term enhanced external counterpulsation (EECP) on morphological damage of endomembrane and endothelium-dependent vasodilatation of the carotid arteries of hypercholesterolemic pigs. METHODS Eighteen male infant pigs were randomly divided into three groups according to the contents of their diet: the normal control(More)
BACKGROUND Enhanced external counterpulsation (EECP) improves ischemia in patients with refractory angina pectoris, but the mechanism remains unclear. To explore the mechanisms of EECP action, we detected progenitor cells presenting any of the following markers CD34(+), CD29(+), and CD106(+). METHODS Growth cytokines-mediated progenitor cell mobilization(More)
BACKGROUND To investigate the efficacy and safety of low-dose tirofiban in elderly patients undergoing primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PPCI) for acute myocardial infarction (AMI). METHODS One hundred and four patients aged 70 years and above undergoing PPCI for AMI were divided into control (n=52) and study (n=52) groups. All patients received(More)
