Inconsistent associations with warfarin dose were observed in genetic variants except VKORC1 haplotype and CYP2C9*3 in Chinese people, and few studies on warfarin dose algorithm was performed in a large Chinese Han population lived in Northern China. Of 787 consenting patients with heart-valve replacements who were receiving long-term warfarin maintenance(More)
The families with Liddle syndrome show marked phenotypic variation in blood pressure, serum potassium and other clinical manifestations. Here we analyzed the correlation of genotype–phenotype in two Chinese families with Liddle syndrome. The sequence of C-terminus of SCNN1B and SCNN1G were screened in the two families with likely Liddle syndrome. In(More)
VKORC1 genetic polymorphisms affect warfarin dose response, aortic calcification, and the susceptibility of coronary artery disease as shown in our previous study. Little is known regarding the association of VKORC1 polymorphisms with coronary artery calcification (CAC) and the role of CAC in the association with coronary artery disease (CAD). Due to a(More)
Low-rise gable-roof buildings are a typical building type in shantytowns and rural areas of China. They exhibit fractured and complex features in synthetic aperture radar (SAR) images with submeter resolution. To automatically detect these buildings with their whole and accurate outlines in a single very high resolution (VHR) SAR image for mapping and(More)
The fibrillin-1 (FBN1) gene mutations result in Marfan syndrome (MFS) and have a variety of phenotypic variations. This disease is involved in the skeletal, ocular and cardiovascular system. Here we analyzed genotype-phenotype correlation in two Chinese families with MFS. Two patients with thoracic aortic aneurysms and dissections were diagnosed as MFS(More)
Variants at the 9p21 locus have been associated with coronary artery disease (CAD); coronary artery calcification (CAC) is related to CAD and other cardiovascular events. To determine the association of the 9p21 locus with CAD in the presence and absence of CAC, 4 groups were enrolled in a case-control study, including 527 CAD patients without CAC, 692 CAD(More)
OBJECTIVE The clinical significance of an intramural course (or bridging) of the coronary artery remains controversial. We investigated the relationship between intramural coronary arteries (ICAs) and coronary stenosis and prognosis of subjects with ICA. METHODS AND RESULTS ICA and coronary stenosis were assessed by multidetector computed tomography(More)
