The aim of this study was to investigate the association of body mass index (BMI) with mortality and cardiovascular events in Chinese patients with atrial fibrillation (AF). This study consecutively enrolled AF patients presenting to an emergency department at 20 hospitals in China from November 2008 to October 2011. A total of 2,016 AF patients was(More)
BACKGROUND Atrial fibrillation (AF) disproportionately affects older adults. However, direct comparison of clinical features, medical therapy, and outcomes in AF patients aged 65-74 and ≥ 75 years is rare. The objective of the present study was to evaluate the differences in clinical characteristics and prognosis in these two age-groups of geriatric(More)
Fungal infective endocarditis (IE) is a rare, serious, and potentially lethal disease, yet its clinical characteristics and short-term outcomes remain poorly understood. A detailed comparative analysis of fungal prosthetic valve endocarditis (PVE) and native valve endocarditis (NVE) has not been performed. This study was designed to explore the general(More)
BACKGROUND Contemporary clinical risk stratification schemata for predicting stroke and thromboembolism in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) are largely derived from western cohorts. The purpose of the present study is to assess the potential risk factors for stroke and major adverse cardiac events (MACE) in a large population of Chinese AF patients(More)
OBJECTIVE To analyze the current use of reperfusion strategies and the outcomes of patients with ST elevation acute coronary syndromes (ACS) in China. METHODS A total of 518 consecutive patients (371 male and 147 females, mean age 65 +/- 11) with ST elevation ACS or newly discovered left bundle branch block were registered from 20 hospitals from 5 regions(More)
There is lack of data about patient characteristics, practice patterns, and long-term adverse outcomes in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) attending emergency departments (EDs) in China. A total of 2016 patients from 20 representative EDs were included. During 1 year, all-cause mortality was 291 (14.6%) cases, stroke/noncentral nervous system systemic(More)
BACKGROUND We compared admission systolic blood pressure (SBP), diastolic blood pressure (DBP), pulse pressure (PP), and mean arterial pressure (MAP) in predicting 30-day all-cause mortality in patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) without cardiogenic shock. METHODS A retrospective study was performed in 7,033 consecutive STEMI(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the plasma concentrations of N-terminal brain natriuretic peptide precursor (NT-proBNP) in patients with heart failure due to various heart diseases and analyze the influencing factors. METHODS We enrolled a total of 804 heart failure patients due to various heart diseases, including valvular heart disease (VHD), dilated(More)
OBJECTIVE To observe the clinical characteristics, treatment options and outcome of diabetic patients with non-ST elevation acute coronary syndromes (NSTEACS). METHODS Consecutive patients admitted with NSTEACS from 38 centers in north China were enrolled. Medical histories, clinical characteristics, treatments and outcomes were evaluated and follow-up(More)
BACKGROUND The results from the ONgoing Telmisartan Alone and in combination with Ramipril Global Endpoint Trial (ONTARGET) indicated that the angiotensin-receptor blocker telmisartan was not inferior to the angiotensin-converting-enzyme inhibitor ramipril in reducing the composite endpoint of cardiovascular death, myocardial infarction, stroke or(More)
