Non-compaction cardiomyopathy (NCM) is a rare congenital cardiomyopathy characterized by deep increased trabeculation in one or more segments of the ventricle. The apical segment of the left ventricle is most commonly affected, but left ventricular basal segment, biventricular involvement or right ventricle predominance have also been described. While some(More)
OBJECTIVE Ischemia-modified albumin (IMA) is a sensitive biomarker of myocardial ischemia. However, data on IMA levels in acute heart failure (HF) are still lacking. In this study, we aimed to evaluate serum IMA levels in acute decompensated HF and the effects of dobutamine and levosimendan treatments on IMA levels. METHODS This was a prospective,(More)
OBJECTIVE Coronary angiography has a limitation to determine the severity of intermediate stenosis (30-70%)1,2. Fractional flow reserve (FFR) is a method for the assessment of the intermediate stenosis severity3. The effect of coronary artery disease (CAD) severity on the FFR results is not clear. In this study, we aimed to expose the effect of CAD severity(More)
BACKGROUND Fractional flow reserve (FFR) is a highly reproducible, accurate and lesion-specific index to indicate inducible ischemia for a particular coronary artery lesion. Invasively measured aortic pulsatility (AP) is an indicator of aortic stiffness. In this study we aimed to evaluate the possible impact of AP in terms of aortic stiffness on FFR(More)
When we made a detailed examination with TTE, we saw that the transvenous temporary pacing was not in the jugular vein. The suprasternal view showed the lead of the pacemaker in the arcus aorta (Fig. 3A). The localization of the pacemaker lead was seen in the right ventricle by fluoroscopy in the RAO. But, we were sure the localization of lead in the left(More)
OBJECTIVE Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) improves heart rate variability (HRV) and heart rate turbulence (HRT) parameters. Herein, our aim was to compare these parameters with intracardiac-cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) patients with similar functional status to detect possible additional benefits of CRT on autonomic functions. METHODS Patients(More)
OBJECTIVE The quantitative parameters which are used to assess the severity of aortic regurgitation (AR) provide the most accurate information whereas these parameters are difficult and time-consuming. The aim of this study was to get a practical parameter to use in daily practice for assessing the severity of aortic regurgitation. METHODS The study was(More)
BACKGROUND Duke treadmill score (DTS) is an index that provides prognostic information calculated at exercise stress test. Fractional flow reserve (FFR) is an invasive method used to evaluate intermediate coronary stenosis. The direct relation of DTS and FFR has not been studied to date. AIM The present study aims to investigate the relationship between(More)
