A method for coronary artery calcium scoring using contrast-enhanced computed tomography.
BACKGROUND Limitations to the coronary calcium score include its requirement for noncontrast imaging and radiation exposure that approaches current methods for contrast-enhanced CT angiography. Expand

Randomized controlled trial of intraaortic balloon counterpulsation in early myocardial infarction with acute heart failure.
The value of intraaortic balloon counterpulsation in limiting infarct size and improving survival was studied in patients with early transmural myocardial infarction complicated by acute heartExpand

Late potentials detected after myocardial infarction: natural history and prognostic significance.
The risk of developing spontaneous ventricular tachycardia (VT) and/or sudden death ("arrhythmic events") was prospectively assessed in 165 patients who survived acute myocardial infarction.Expand

Severity of canine myocardial infarcts in relation to indices of oxygen demand: preservation of myocardial creatine kinase activity by vagal stimulation and propranolol.
The left anterior descending coronary artery was ligated in 58 open-chest anaesthetised dogs; 23 were controls, 15 were given intravenous propranolol 1 mg . kg-1 before and at 6 h intervals afterExpand

Natural history of late potentials in the first ten days after acute myocardial infarction and relation to early ventricular arrhythmias.
Serial signal-averaged electrocardiograms (ECGs) were performed every 48 hours in 50 patients admitted to the coronary care unit with acute myocardial infarction. The prevalence of late potentialsExpand
