Background: C-reactive protein (CRP) is an acute-phase reactant protein synthesized by the liver in response to acute stress in a wide range of acute and chronic inflammatory conditions. In healthy subjects and patients presenting with coronary artery disease (CAD), elevated levels of CRP has repeatedly been demonstrated to predict future cardiovascular(More)
Cardiogenic shock is characterized by inadequate tissue perfusion due to cardiac dysfunction and is the leading cause of death in patients hospitalized with acute myocardial infarction. Mortality from cardiogenic shock still remains high. The development of cardiogenic shock is rarely unexpected; most patients who develop cardiogenic shock do so within 48(More)
To achieve a successful coronary artery stenting guiding catheter with good back-up support is vital. However, sometimes standard guiding catheters may not selectively cannulate the desired coronary ostium despite a successful cannulation with a diagnostic catheter of the same curve. This might be due to the difference in wall structures of the catheters(More)
Ventricular tachyarrhythmias are common in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy that may lead to syncope and sudden death. Bradyarrhythmia such as atrioventricular conduction disturbance, a relatively rare complication associated with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, may also cause syncope and sudden death in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. We report a 28-year old man who(More)
INTRODUCTION Mechanical revascularization by percutaneous coronary interventions has now become an established and preferable method of revascularization in patients with acute coronary syndromes. The aim of the study was to identify the clinical indications for percutaneous coronary interventions and in-hospital outcomes of percutaneous coronary(More)
INTRODUCTION The dose-response relationship suggests a toxic effect of alcohol on heart and liver and the possibility of a correlation between alcohol-induced liver and heart disease. The present study was aimed to look into the relationship between chronic liver and heart muscle disease among the non-moderate drinkers in our context. METHODS An(More)
Background and Aims: Hypertension is one of the major coronary heart disease risk factors. Endothelial dysfunction is thought to be the preclinical vascular changes in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis and it its major manifestation; coronary heart disease. This study was designed to assess the endothelial function in subjects with major coronary risk(More)
