Aortic stiffness, an important predictor of cardiovascular events, may relate to aortic calcification rather than noncalcified atherosclerotic plaque. The aim of this study was to determine the relation of aortic stiffness to aortic plaque and aortic calcification in asymptomatic postmenopausal women. One hundred female twins (mean age±standard deviation(More)
BACKGROUND The effectiveness of percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) in renal artery stenosis (RAS) associated with neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) has not been established. A review of the literature revealed 14 studies, mainly case reports, of which a total of 16 patients had been treated with PTA, all prior to any surgery being undertaken. (More)
Septal rebound stretch reflects the functional substrate to cardiac resynchroniza-tion therapy and predicts volumetric and neurohormonal response. blood-pool SPECT evaluation of changes after radiofrequency catheter ablation of accessory pathways: evidence for persistent ventricular preexcitation despite successful therapy. Cardiac memory in patients with(More)
Distal-less 3 (Dlx3)(-/-) mice die at E9.5 presumably due to an abnormal placental phenotype including reduced placental vasculature and secretion of placental growth factor. To examine the role of Dlx3 specifically within the epiblast, Dlx3 conditional knockout mice were generated using an epiblast-specific Meox2(CreSor) allele. Dlx3(-/fl), Meox2(CreSor)(More)
