BACKGROUND P-wave dispersion (PWD) has been reported to be associated with inhomogeneous and discontinuous propagation of sinus impulses. In the present study, we aimed to investigate PWD in patients with dilated cardiomyopathy. METHOD The study population consisted of 72 patients with dilated cardiomyopathy and 72 healthy control subjects. Left atrial(More)
BACKGROUND Right ventricular (RV) involvement is associated with increased morbidity and mortality in patients with acute inferior myocardial infarction (MI). Although electrocardiography is probably the most useful, simple, and objective tool for the diagnosis of acute MI, there are no well-defined criteria in the standard 12-lead electrocardiogram to(More)
P-wave dispersion (PWD) is a new electrocardiographic marker that reflects discontinuous and inhomogeneous propagation of sinus impulses, which has been studied in some cardiac conditions as a useful predictor of paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (AF). The aim of the peresent study was to compare P-wave duration and PWD in patients < or =45 versus > or =65(More)
BACKGROUND Coronary artery anomalies are evaluated by using catheter-based angiography. Multidetector row-computed tomography (MDCT) is a new noninvasive imaging technique that has excellent spatial resolution for detecting the origin and course of a coronary anomalous vessel. OBJECTIVE To determine the sensitivity of multidetector computed tomography in(More)
BACKGROUND Coronary angiography is the gold standard for diagnosing coronary artery fistulas (CAFs). Multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) is a recently developed imaging technique for detecting coronary artery stenosis, coronary artery anomalies, and coronary artery fistulas and their courses. OBJECTIVE We aimed to determine accuracy or sensitivity of(More)
Accessory mitral valve tissue is an extremely rare congenital cardiac anomaly. Most of the cases reported in the medical literature were associated with left ventricular outflow tract obstruction. The majority of cases of accessory mitral valve tissue, causing left ventricular outflow tract obstruction, occur in association with other congenital cardiac(More)
BACKGROUND The coronary slow-flow phenomenon is an angiographic phenomenon characterized by delayed opacification of vessels in the absence of any evidence of obstructive epicardial coronary disease. Several studies have demonstrated myocardial ischemia in patients with slow coronary artery flow. In the present study, we aimed at evaluating the effects of(More)
The Thrombolysis in myocardial infarction (TIMI) frame count is a simple clinical tool for assessing quantitative indexes of coronary blood flow. This measurement has been significantly correlated with flow velocity measured with a flow-wire by several investigators during baseline conditions or hyperemia. In this study we aimed to evaluate the coronary(More)
