OBJECTIVES We aimed to identify the bronchial response to inhaled methacholine in patients with mitral stenosis (MS) and to clarify whether or not the bronchial hyperreactivity (BHR) is reversible after percutaneous mitral balloon valvulotomy (PBMV). PATIENTS AND SETTING Thirty patients with MS and 28 age-matched healthy control subjects were(More)
Two patients who had angiographically proven coronary artery aneurysms are presented. The clinical pictures of these patients were similar to that of patients with atherosclerotic coronary artery disease. Both had severe angina pectoris, and the second patient (case 2) had had myocardial infarction. Their coronary artery aneurysms were single, fusiform(More)
Subintimal or false lumen stent deployment is a rare complication of percutaneous coronary interventions. The most balloon-induced small non-flow limiting dissections heal spontaneously and can be treated medically with close observation if distal coronary flow is not compromised. However, the complex and severe flow-limiting postprocedural dissections may(More)
The high frequency mid-QRS potentials and late potentials are important in coronary artery disease because they are related to the extent of ischemia and prognosis. In this study, the effects of successful percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) on these potentials were evaluated. Twenty-four patients with coronary artery disease (aged 34-67(More)
Calcified nodules in human coronary arteries are usually focally distributed. Non-invasive imaging of coronary arteries by bedside emergency transthoracic echocardiography in adults is possible and may become a useful adjunct to other methods of coronary artery examination. Coronary artery stenosis can be identified as localized color aliasing and(More)
BACKGROUND Septal perfusion defects are common on myocardial perfusion single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) slices in patients with left bundle-branch block (LBBB) in the absence of coronary artery disease. HYPOTHESIS The use of gated myocardial perfusion SPECT imaging in such patients should be clinically validated. The aims of this study(More)
