Temporal changes in myocardial perfusion after recanalization and their relation with functional recovery in patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI) using intravenous myocardial contrast echocardiography (MCE) have not yet been clarified. To address this issue, 19 patients with first, uncomplicated anterior wall AMI were studied using intravenous(More)
The aim of this work was to evaluate and quantify the impact of an invasive training of cardiology fellows on some exposure parameters. From 1 January 2000 to 31 December 2002, three staff members performed 2.582 diagnostic procedures (Group 1) that were compared with 819 performed by, or with the participation of five cardiology fellows (Group 2). Exposure(More)
OBJECTIVE Enzymatic estimation of infarct size is desirable in the reperfusion era, because a possible discrepancy with the observed asynergic area of the left ventricle may suggest the presence of stunned myocardium. Unfortunately, timely myocardial reperfusion produces a rapid washout of creatine kinase (CK) in blood flow, which overestimates infarct(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Familial hypercholesterolemia (FH) is a genetic disorder characterized by high levels of low density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) predisposing to premature cardiovascular disease. Its prevalence varies and has been estimated around 1 in 200-500. The Heredity survey evaluated the prevalence of potential FH and the therapeutic(More)
