BACKGROUND Recent evidence suggests that epicardial adipose tissue may contribute locally to the pathogenesis of coronary artery disease (CAD). We investigated how local and systemic adiponectin, an adipokine with anti-inflammatory and insulin sensitizing properties, is related to the presence of CAD and cardiovascular risk factors. METHODS Serum and(More)

Our aim was to report on the first transcatheter double valve replacement into native valves from a transapical access. METHODS AND RESULTS A(More)
Strategies for indirect myocardial revascularization in end stage ischemic coronary artery disease have been described and are still developing, including transmyocardial laser revascularization, ischemic preconditioning, low-energy shock wave therapy, or epicardial transplantation of latissimus dorsi muscle flap. All of them are intended to induce(More)
