The current study aimed to evaluate the influence of regular annual influenza vaccinations on cardiovascular (CV) death and heart failure-related hospitalizations (HFrH) in stable outpatients with heart failure with reduced ejection fraction. The Turkish research team-HF (TREAT-HF) is a network undertaking multicenter, observational cohort studies in HF.(More)
During implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) implantation, ventricular defibrillation testing (DFT) is considered a standard procedure. This procedure often requires multiple ventricular fibrillation (VF) inductions. These repeated short episodes of circulatory arrest with global cerebral ischemia may cause neurological damage. In the present study,(More)
BACKGROUND Coeliac disease (CD) is an autoimmune and inflammatory disorder of the small intestine. There is reasonable evidence linking inflammation to the initiation and continuation of atrial fibrillation (AF) in inflammatory conditions. Atrial electro-mechanic delay (EMD) was suggested as an early marker of AF in previous studies. The objectives of this(More)
OBJECTIVE Data regarding stroke prevention strategies in non-valvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF) are limited to vitamin K antagonists (VKAs). This study aimed to evaluate real-life stroke prevention strategies for NVAF patients in the era of non-VKA oral anticoagulants (NOACs). METHODS We established a cross-sectional, multicenter, nationwide registry of(More)
BACKGROUND Pacemaker and implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) implantation increases cardiac troponin I (cTnI) levels which indicates myocardial injury. During implantation of a cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) device, balloon inflation for coronary sinus (CS) venogram, cannulation of CS side branch, and electrode advancement may interfere(More)
BACKGROUND The perioperative use of antithrombotic therapy is associated with increased bleeding risk after cardiac implantable electronic device (CIED) implantation. Topical application of tranexamic acid (TXA) is effective in reducing bleeding complications after various surgical operations. However, there is no information regarding local TXA application(More)
OBJECTIVE Atherosclerosis leads to increased arterial resistance through thickening and stiffening of the arterial wall, a phenomenon largely known as arterial stiffness. M-mode propagation velocity of the descending thoracic aorta, named aortic velocity propagation (AVP) is a novel method for the measurement of the aortic stiffness. We aimed to investigate(More)
OBJECTIVE Carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning is very common worldwide. Despite the fact that CO is known to have cardiotoxic effects, as it has non-specific symptoms; cardiotoxicity could easily be overlooked, especially when troponin is not measured. The present study aimed to evaluate the association between troponin I levels and red cell distribution width(More)
Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common cardiac dysrhythmia and occurs in 3.3%-10% of emergency admissions. It is frequently quoted for people over the age of 75, but the cases of AF in young subjects without structural heart disease are also increasing, therefore, leading to the evaluation of "lonely atrial fibrillation" as a new challenge for the(More)
