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)
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)
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)
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 There are several studies evaluating the cardiac effects of carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning during the acute period; however, the number of studies evaluating the long-term cardiac effects is limited. OBJECTIVE The present study aimed to evaluate the effects of blood carboxyhemoglobin (COHb) levels, elevated due to CO poisoning on the long-term(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)
To evaluate the abnormalities and variations of the arterial system of upper extremities and superficial palmar arch with computed tomography angiography and to guide the clinician during this procedure. A total of 156 upper extremities of 78 cases were retrospectively analyzed using computed tomography angiography. The study was approved by the local(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)
