We investigated the effect of long-term supraphysiologic doses of anabolic androgenic steroids (AAS) on atrial electromechanical delay (AEMD) in male bodybuilders. We clearly demonstrated that long-term consumption of supraphysiologic doses of AAS is associated with higher values of inter- and intra-AEMD in healthy young bodybuilders.
The influence of plasma adiponectin levels on myocardial contractile function has not been fully examined. We aimed to investigate the relationship between three-directional systolic function and plasma adiponectin levels in asymptomatic hypertensive patients using two- dimensional speckle-tracking echocardiography. The study population consisted of 78(More)
Introduction: The aim of this study was to investigate an easily available inflammatory marker and monocyte to high-density lipoprotein cholesterol ratio (MHR) in patients with cardiac syndrome X (CSX). Materials and Method: The study population included 100 patients of which 50 patients had CSX and 50 patients had normal coronary angiograms (Control).(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to evaluate the association between the extent of coronary artery disease assessed by the Gensini score and/or the SYNTAX score and the significant carotid stenosis in patients undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). SUBJECTS AND METHODS A total of 225 patients who had carotid doppler(More)
BACKGROUND Relation of plasma fibrinogen levels with extent, severity, and complexity of coronary artery disease (CAD) in patients with stable angina pectoris (SAP) has not been adequately investigated. The aim of this study was to evaluate whether plasma fibrinogen level is associated with coronary complexity, severity, and extent assessed by SYNTAX(More)
BACKGROUND Right ventricular (RV) effects of long-term use of anabolic-androgenic steroids (AAS) are not clearly known. The aim of this study was to assess RV systolic functions by two-dimensional speckle tracking echocardiography (2DSTE) in AAS user and nonuser bodybuilders. METHODS A total of 33 competitive male bodybuilders (15 AAS users, 18 AAS(More)
