Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH) is a progressive symptomatic disorder, which may ultimately lead to death if left untreated. Although majority of PAH cases are idiopathic, pulmonary hypertension resulting due to certain underlying conditions are also observed frequently. In such cases, it becomes essential to identify any potentially treatable or(More)
Since its initial description as a safe and feasible access route for cardiac catheterization, the radial artery has been increasingly used for percutaneous coronary procedures. The transradial approach for percutaneous coronary procedures has the advantage of reduced adverse vascular events. Nevertheless, there are chances of transradial procedure failure(More)
Though pericardial disease is common in patients with renal disease, purulent pericarditis is very rare. We report a fatal case of purulent pericarditis and sepsis due to methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus in a 78-year-old male with systemic hypertension and renal disease along with the molecular characterization of its resistant mechanism.
Accurate identification of low-risk patients with acute pulmonary embolism (PE) who may be eligible for outpatient treatment or early discharge can have substantial cost-saving benefit. The purpose of this study was to derive and validate a prediction model to effectively identify patients with PE at low risk of short-term mortality, right ventricular(More)
BACKGROUND The utility of biomarkers for prognostication of long term outcomes in patients with anaemia and heart failure(HF) is not well defined. The objective of this study was to assess the ability of a novel biomarker, bio-width index (BWI),to improve risk stratification in patients with anaemia and acutely decompensated heart failure(ADHF), in(More)
Severe isolated tricuspid regurgitation (TR) is very rare, with most cases of TR being functional and secondary to pulmonary hypertension from left heart pathologies. We report an unusual case of a young Nigerian male, who presented to us with dyspnea, repeated hospital admissions for heart failure, and a childhood history of rheumatic fever. Echocardiogram(More)
