We evaluated the cross-sectional associations of N-terminal pro-B-type natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) with cardiac structural and functional abnormalities in a cohort of patients with chronic kidney(More)
The early mitral flow deceleration time (DTE) is a prognostically validated marker of left ventricular diastolic dysfunction. It has been reported that the DTE is influenced by the loading(More)
OBJECTIVES The goal of this study was to determine the relationship between changes in cardiac hemodynamics during intravenous adenosine (ADO) infusion, and myocardial blood flow (MBF). BACKGROUND(More)
BACKGROUND The deceleration time of early mitral inflow (E) is shortened by left ventricular chamber stiffening and prolonged by impaired relaxation. For any given rate of deceleration of early(More)
BACKGROUND Brain-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) and the amino-terminal fragment of its prohormone (NT-proBNP) are known predictors of cardiovascular outcomes in patients with coronary heart disease;(More)
