BACKGROUND Many ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) patients have multivessel disease. There is still controversy in treatment strategy in STEMI patients with multivessel disease. We compared clinical outcomes of multivessel revascularization with infarct- related artery (IRA) revascularization in STEMI patients. METHODS The 1,644 STEMI(More)
Threadlike structures on the surfaces of mammalian internal organs were recently observed, and they can be the anatomical basis of the meridian-like network of internal organs as detected by the Bi-Digital O-Ring test imaging method. Morphological and histological studies were performed to reveal their novel features by using confocal and electron(More)
BACKGROUND Most type 2 diabetes mellitus patients are obese and have obesity related vascular complications. Exenatide treatment is well known for both decreasing glycated hemoglobin levels and reduction in body weight. So, this study aimed to determine the effects of exenatide on body composition, glycated hemoglobin levels, and vascular stiffness in obese(More)
BACKGROUND The incidence of diabetes has rapidly increased due to changes in eating habits. Inflammatory factors and beta (β) cell dysfunction due to high-fat diets aggravate chronic diseases and their complications. However, omega-3 dietary fats have anti-inflammatory effects, and the involvement of autophagy in the etiology of diabetes has been reported.(More)
BACKGROUND Inflammatory factors and β-cell dysfunction due to high-fat diets aggravate chronic diseases and their complications. However, omega-3 dietary fats have anti-inflammatory effects, and the involvement of autophagy in the etiology of diabetes has been reported. Therefore, we examined the protective effects of autophagy on diabetes using fat-1(More)
OBJECTIVES Obesity is a well-known cardiovascular disease risk factor. We evaluated the relationship between the waist-hip ratio (WHR), as a surrogate marker of central obesity, and clinical outcomes in patients with non-ST-segment elevation myocardial infarctions (NSTEMIs) undergoing percutaneous coronary interventions (PCIs). METHODS Between 2008 and(More)
