This article is the first clinical investigation of the quantitative left atrial (LA) vortex flow by two-dimensional (2-D) transesophageal contrast echocardiography (2-D-TECE) using vector particle image velocimetry (PIV). The aims of this study were to assess the feasibility of LA vortex flow analysis and to characterize and quantify the LA vortex flow in(More)
Endovascular aneurysm repair has become a standard treatment for abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA). However a severely angulated aneurysmal neck is one of the most common anatomical limitations of endovascular repair, and is associated with poor outcomes. We successfully treated a patient who had an abdominal aortic aneurysm with a severely angulated aortic(More)
BACKGROUND The characteristics and prognostic value of the variability of premature ventricular contraction (PVC) coupling intervals (CIs) for cardiac mortality are not yet decisive. METHODSANDRESULTS In 133 consecutive patients (58±14 years old, 53 women) who had left ventricular dysfunction (LVD: ejection fraction <50%) and frequent PVCs (≥10/h) who(More)
The development of an efficient synthesis method to produce multimetallic nanoparticles (NPs) with a desirable structure is strongly required to clarify the structure-composition-property relationship of NPs and to investigate their possible applications. However, the controlled synthesis of NPs consisting of multiple (n ≥ 3) noble metal components has been(More)
Aneurysm of the sinus of Valsalva that causes dissection of the interventricular septum is an extremely rare entity. In this report we describe a case of aneurysm of the sinus of Valsalva dissecting into the interventricular septum, from the base to mid septum, after aortic valve replacement. After the diagnosis was made by transthoracic echocardiography(More)
Highly monodisperse 5 nm Pd-Ni alloy nanoparticles (NPs) were prepared by the reduction of Pd(acac)(2)/Ni(acac)(2) mixtures with tert-butylamine-borane complex (TBAB) in the presence of oleic acid (OA) and oleylamine (OAm). Employing TBAB as an effective reductant and OA/OAm combination as an effective stabilizing agent is crucial to the formation of(More)
We report the solution three-dimensional structure of an alphaA-conotoxin EIVA determined by nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy and restrained molecular dynamics. The alphaA-conotoxin EIVA consists of 30 amino acids representing the largest peptide among the alpha/alphaA-family conotoxins discovered so far and targets the neuromuscular nicotinic(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES This study was performed to describe clinical characteristics of patients with left ventriculars (LV) dysfunction and implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD), and to evaluate the effect of ICD therapy on survival in Yeongnam province of Korea. SUBJECTS AND METHODS From a community-based device registry (9 centers, Yeongnam(More)
Highly monodisperse spherical 3 nm Pd-Cu alloy nanoparticles (NPs) were synthesized in high yield through the coreduction of [Pd(acac)(2)] (acac=acetylacetonate) and [Cu(acac)(2)] in nonhydrolytic solutions by using trioctylamine and oleic acid. The relative compositions of Pd and Cu could be tuned by controlling the molar ratios between the metal(More)
