The present study was designed to determine the reliability of the analysis of the time difference between onset of mitral inflow and onset of early diastolic mitral annulus velocity and mean systolic strain index, and comparing them with E/E′ in the detection of increased left ventricular end-diastolic pressure (LVEDP) in patients with coronary artery(More)
Objective We aimed to study the comparison of strain and strain rate parameters with conventional left ventriculography derived regional function. Method Forty patients were included in the study. The study group was selected from patients who had undergone left ventriculography and coronary angiography for clinical indications. Regional myocardial function(More)
Capecitabine is a chemotherapeutic agent used in the treatment of metastatic colon cancer and metastatic breast cancer. It is metabolized into fluorouracil (5-FU) in the liver; hence, its mechanism of action is similar to that of 5-FU. Cardiac toxicity, although rarely seen, may be of concern in some patients. Although multiple hypotheses have been proposed(More)
