Primary cardiac lymphomas (PCL) are extremely rare. Clinical manifestations may be variable and are attributed to location. Here, we report on a case of PCL presenting with atrioventricular (AV) block. A 55 year-old male had experienced chest discomfort with unexplained dyspnea and night sweating. His initial electrocardiogram (ECG) revealed a first degree(More)
AIMS Apical hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (ApHCM) is thought to have a favourable clinical outcome, compared with other types of HCM. We sought to investigate the clinical and anatomical differences in cardiovascular imaging between ApHCM and non-ApHCM. METHODS AND RESULTS A total of 350 patients diagnosed with HCM underwent cardiovascular magnetic(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Aspiration thrombectomy (AT) during primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) is an effective adjunctive therapy for ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). An elevated neutrophil count in STEMI is associated with microvascular dysfunction and adverse outcomes. We evaluated whether AT can improve microvascular(More)
PURPOSE An association between baroreflex sensitivity (BRS) and the response to tilt training has not been reported in patients with neurally mediated syncope (NMS). This study sought to investigate the role of BRS in predicting the response to tilt training in patients with NMS. MATERIALS AND METHODS We analyzed 57 patients who underwent tilt training at(More)
Percutaneous left atrial appendage (LAA) occlusion using the Watchman device (Atritech, Plymouth, MN) is suggested as an alternative modality to warfarin for stroke prevention in patients with nonvalvular atrial fibrillation (AF). However, peridevice leakage resulting from incomplete LAA occlusion remains 1 of the most frequent limitations. We report a case(More)
BACKGROUND Prolongation of corrected QT (QTc) interval reflects an increased risk of fatal arrhythmia and cardiac death in various populations. However, it is not clear whether the paced-QTc (p-QTc) interval is associated with new-onset left ventricular systolic dysfunction (new-LVSD) or cardiac death. METHODS In 491 consecutive patients (64 ± 14 years)(More)
Riata defibrillator leads were recalled due to a high failure rate. This study measured the incidence of externalized conductor (EC) and electrical dysfunction (ED) and sought to determine the predictors of ED with Riata defibrillator leads. We enrolled patients who received Riata® or Riata® ST silicone defibrillator leads at our center between January 2003(More)
