Impact of cardiac and renal dysfunction on inhospital morbidity and mortality of patients with acute myocardial infarction undergoing primary angioplasty.
BACKGROUND Risk stratification of patients with ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) undergoing primary angioplasty is important in order to predict outcomes and to delineate targetedExpand

Lack of improvement of lung diffusing capacity following fluid withdrawal by ultrafiltration in chronic heart failure.
OBJECTIVES We sought to investigate the possibility that lung diffusing capacity reduction observed in chronic heart failure is reversible in the short term. BACKGROUND Mechanical properties of theExpand
