INTRODUCTION Regular physical activity has been associated with less severity of an acute coronary syndrome (ACS), lower in-hospital mortality rates, and an improved short term prognosis. This study evaluated the relationship between physical activity status and the development of left ventricular systolic dysfunction (LVSD) according to inflammation and(More)
Aims. We evaluated the interaction effect between depressive symptoms and dietary habits on 30-day development of cardiovascular disease (CVD) (death or rehospitalization) in elderly, acute coronary syndrome (ACS) survivors. Methods. During 2006-2008, we recorded 277 nonfatal, consecutive ACS admissions (75 ± 6 years, 70% males, 70% had diagnosis of(More)
BACKGROUND/INTRODUCTION Risk stratification in chronic heart failure (HF) remains a challenge. Renal function and B-natriuretic peptide (BNP) might confer predictive value towards long-term mortality in HF patients after an acute coronary syndrome (ACS). METHODS From May 2006 to March 2009, 1,000 consecutive patients who were hospitalized with ACS(More)
The purpose of this work was to evaluate the relation between serum glucose levels at hospital admission and left ventricular systolic function in nondiabetic patients with an acute coronary syndrome (ACS). Of the 1000 ACS patients who were consecutively enrolled during 2007–2008, 583 (63 ± 13 years, 20% females) nondiabetic patients were studied in this(More)
INTRODUCTION There are only limited data about the role of renal function in the development of left ventricular systolic dysfunction in patients with an acute coronary syndrome (ACS). We sought to investigate whether renal insufficiency is an independent predictor for systolic dysfunction among patients who had an ACS. METHODS During 2006-2007, 814(More)
The aim of the present work was to evaluate the association between fish consumption and the development of left ventricular systolic dysfunction in patients who have had an acute coronary syndrome (ACS). During 2006 to 2009, 934 consecutive ACS patients were included in the study; 437 patients who developed LVSD, 347 male (64 +/- 13 y) and 90 female (71(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS The aim of the present work was to evaluate the association between exclusive olive oil consumption and the development of left ventricular systolic dysfunction (LVSD) in patients with a previous acute coronary syndrome (ACS). METHODS From 2006 to 2007, 651 consecutive ACS patients were enrolled. In 288 males (64 +/- 13 years) and 75(More)
OBJECTIVES We sought to assess the comparative value of inflammatory markers on the occurrence of left ventricular systolic dysfunction (LVSD) after an acute coronary syndrome (ACS). METHODS During 2006-2008, 760 patients with an ACS were enrolled. C-reactive protein (CRP) and white blood cell (WBC) count were measured during the first 12 hours of(More)
In order for Semantic Web applications to be successful a key component should be their ability to take advantage of rich content descriptions in meaningful ways. Reasoning consists a key part in this process and it consequently appears at the core of the Semantic Web architecture stack. From a practical point of view however, it is not always clear how(More)
This study aimed to assess the relationship between long-term fish consumption and short-term prognosis of patients who had an acute coronary syndrome. The multi-adjusted data analysis from a total of 214 men and 79 women patients showed that intake of fish, n-3 and n-6 fatty acids above 7 portions, 8.8 g and 13.2 g per week correspondingly, is associated(More)
