Purpose: To compare the early and long-term outcomes of subclavian artery angioplasty in patients with aortoarteritis and atherosclerosis. Methods: Sixty-one subclavian artery angioplasties were performed in 55 consecutive patients with aortoarteritis (n=32) and atherosclerosis (n=23) between 1986 and 1995. An arch aortogram followed by a selective(More)
PURPOSE Takayasu arteritis (TA) is a rare form of inflammatory arteriopathy affecting the aorta and its major branches. Obstructive lesions of all arch vessels may lead to disabling neurologic symptoms. There is limited experience with endovascular revascularization in this situation. The present report describes immediate and follow-up results with(More)
BACKGROUND Phosphodiesterase-5 inhibitors produce a significant decrease in pulmonary vascular resistance in patients with idiopathic pulmonary arterial hypertension. We studied the effects of tadalafil, a phosphodiesterase-5 inhibitor, on short-term hemodynamics, tolerability, and efficacy over a 12-week period in patients of Eisenmenger syndrome having a(More)
Purpose: The efficacy and safety of endovascular stent implantation to correct dissection or a suboptimal result after percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) was evaluated in patients suffering from aortic stenosis due to aortoarteritis. Methods: Twelve children and young adults [aged (mean±SD) 18.2±8.7 years] underwent stent implantation after PTA of(More)
BACKGROUND Studies on genes of endothelial and vascular homeostasis are inadequate in females. METHODS We investigated the role of 7 variants of ACE, AGT and NOS3 and their correlation with NO(x) levels and ACE activity in hypertension susceptibility in 910 case-controls of both genders. RESULTS Prevalence of alleles D of ACE I/D; -6A of AGT -6G/A;(More)
BACKGROUND The genes FTO and GNB3 are implicated in essential hypertension but their interaction remains to be explored. This study investigates the role of interaction between the two genes in the pathophysiology of essential hypertension. METHODS/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS In a case-control study comprising 750 controls and 550 patients, interaction between the(More)
BACKGROUND Balloon angioplasty for native coarctation of the aorta (CoA) in adults, though promising, is sometimes limited by significant residual gradient (>20 mm Hg). Few studies available have reported on use of balloon-expandable stents in such a situation. We evaluated the use of self- and balloon-expandable stents in patients with suboptimal response(More)
Aortopulmonary (AP) window, a communication between ascending aorta and pulmonary artery, is usually nonrestrictive and causes severe pulmonary vascular obstructive disease early in life. Only in 10% of the cases it is restrictive. There are sporadic case reports [1-8] of device closure of AP window which are mostly confined to these restrictive AP windows,(More)
OBJECTIVES Hepatopulmonary syndrome consists of a triad of hepatic dysfunction and/or portal hypertension, intrapulmonary vascular dilatations and hypoxemia. A study of hepatopulmonary syndrome among patients of cirrhosis of liver and portal hypertension was undertaken. METHODS Thirty patients participated in this study. The diagnosis of cirrhosis of(More)
