PURPOSE This work addresses the unanswered question of whether multidisciplinary care (MDC) of heart failure (HF) can reduce readmissions when optimal medical care is applied in both intervention and control groups. METHODS In a randomized, controlled study, 98 patients (mean age, 70.8 +/- 10.5 years) admitted to hospital with left ventricular failure(More)
Many patients admitted to hospital with heart failure have preserved left ventricular (LV) systolic function. The incidence of isolated diastolic dysfunction as a cause of such admission remains unclear. We aimed to examine diastolic function in unselected admissions from the community with heart failure using the European Study Group on Diastolic Heart(More)
The ability of the electrocardiographic ST segment to predict successful reperfusion after thrombolytic therapy remains controversial. To evaluate whether angiographically determined reperfusion could be predicted from changes in ST-segment elevation, the sum of ST-segment elevation in affected leads of the electrocardiogram was compared before and after(More)
The Cornell ERL Photoinjector prototype has recently demonstrated successful operation at 20 mA for 8 hours using a bi-alkali photocathode grown on a Si substrate. The photocathode film was grown off center, and remained relatively undamaged; however, upon removal from the gun, the substrate at the gun electrostatic center displayed significant visible(More)
The importance of the timing and completeness of coronary artery reperfusion for limitation of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) size after intravenous thrombolytic therapy was studied in 39 patients. All had electrocardiographic epicardial injury and acute coronary angiography performed < 8 hours after symptom onset. Acutely jeopardized myocardium was(More)
Routine invasive evaluations are being abandoned, and thus simple non-invasive methods for estimating the extent of jeopardized myocardium during evolving myocardial infarction are needed for risk stratification to guide the appropriate therapeutic intervention. With this in mind the aim of the paper was to evaluate the association between ischaemic changes(More)
