BACKGROUND We previously correlated non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) histology with (18)fluoro-2-deoxyglucose-positron emission tomography (FDG-PET) intensity: a standardized uptake value (SUV)>10 predicted aggressive lymphoma with >80% certainty and an SUV >13, with >90% certainty. PATIENTS AND METHODS To evaluate SUV in transformed lymphoma, we identified(More)
The treatment of calcified coronary lesions by percutaneous coronary intervention has been shown to be associated with poor outcomes and an increased rate of complications. However, the impact of coronary calcification in patients undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) is unknown. A total of 755 patients presenting with acute coronary syndrome in(More)
BACKGROUND/PURPOSE Family history of coronary artery disease (CAD) is a well-established risk factor of future cardiovascular events. The authors sought to examine the relationship between family history of CAD and clinical profile and prognosis of patients with ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) undergoing primary percutaneous coronary intervention(More)
A history of diabetes mellitus (DM) is an independent predictor for adverse events in patients with acute ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) undergoing primary percutaneous coronary intervention. Outcomes of patients with STEMI and newly diagnosed DM (NDM) are less well described. We used the Harmonizing Outcomes with Revascularization and(More)
BACKGROUND Target vessel revascularization (TVR) may compromise the benefits of primary percutaneous coronary intervention in ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) We set out to identify the predictors and examine the impact of TVR after STEMI in patients receiving a coronary stent. METHODS In HORIZONS-AMI, 3,602 patients with STEMI were(More)
