To extend understanding of the genetic architecture and molecular basis of type 2 diabetes (T2D), we conducted a meta-analysis of genetic variants on the Metabochip, including 34,840 cases and 114,981 controls, overwhelmingly of European descent. We identified ten previously unreported T2D susceptibility loci, including two showing sex-differentiated(More)
Hypertension is a common disorder of multifactorial origin that constitutes a major risk factor for cardiovascular events such as stroke and myocardial infarction. Previous studies demonstrated an enhanced signal transduction via pertussis toxin-sensitive G proteins in lymphoblasts and fibroblasts from selected patients with essential hypertension. We have(More)

BACKGROUND The natural history, management, and outcome of takotsubo (stress) cardiomyopathy are incompletely understood. METHODS The International Takotsubo Registry, a consortium of 26 centers in Europe and the United States, was established to investigate clinical features, prognostic predictors, and outcome of takotsubo cardiomyopathy. Patients were(More)
Aortic dissection is a rare but potentially fatal event resulting in separation of the layers of the tunica media by ingress of blood, producing a false lumen with variable proximal and distal extension. Ascending aortic dissection is the most common catastrophe of the aorta; it is 2–3 times more common than rupture of the abdominal aorta. Mortality of(More)

Muscle overlying the intramyocardial segment of an epicardial coronary artery, first mentioned by Reyman1 in 1737, is termed a myocardial bridge, and the artery coursing within the myocardium is called a tunneled artery (Figure 1). It is characterized by systolic compression of the tunneled segment, which remains clinically silent in the vast majority of(More)
BACKGROUND The conventional treatment strategy for patients with atrial fibrillation who are to undergo electrical cardioversion is to prescribe warfarin for anticoagulation for three weeks before cardioversion. It has been proposed that if transesophageal echocardiography reveals no atrial thrombus, cardioversion may be performed safely after only a short(More)
