BACKGROUND Patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) have increased cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. Although autopsy studies have documented that the heart is affected in most SLE patients, clinical manifestations occur in less than 10%. QT dispersion is a new parameter that can be used to assess homogeneity of cardiac repolarization and(More)
BACKGROUND The progression rate of liver fibrosis is variable among patients with hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection. It is affected by environmental and genetic factors. We determined the association between ABO blood groups and the severity of liver fibrosis in HCV patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS This cross-sectional study was conducted on adult patients(More)
BACKGROUND Oncologists today are greatly concerned about the treatment of relapsed/refractory acute leukemia. FLANG regimen, combination of novantron, cytarabine, fludarabine, and granulocyte-colony stimulating factor, has been used in treatment of refractory/relapsed acute leukemia since 1990s. The present study has evaluated mortality and response rate of(More)
It has previously been shown that maximum P-wave duration and P-wave dispersion in 12-lead surface electrocardiogram (ECG) are significantly increased in patients prone to developing atrial fibrillation. Because patients with mitral stenosis (MS) are also susceptible to developing atrial fibrillation, the present study was carried out to determine whether(More)
BACKGROUND Dry weight (DW) is an important concept related to patients undergoing hemodialysis. Conventional method seems to be time consuming and operator dependent. Bio impedance analysis (BIA) is a new and simple method reported to be an accurate way for estimating DW. In this study, we aimed to compare the conventional estimation of DW with measuring DW(More)
BACKGROUND Although atrial fibrillation (AF) is commonly encountered in patients with constrictive pericarditis (CP), little has been done to clarify its associated predisposing factors. Our aim was to evaluate the association of age, gender, disease duration, and pericardial calcification with AF in these patients. METHODS The medical records of 44(More)
