BACKGROUND Aortic sclerosis is associated with adverse cardiovascular outcomes. However, the mechanism by which such nonobstructive valve lesions impart excess(More)
Platelets are used as models for vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMC) in evaluating intracellular calcium ([Ca2+]i) metabolism in humans. This study was designed to determine if agonist-induced increases in [Ca2+]i in platelets occur via release from intracellular stores as previously demonstrated for VSMC. Incubation of purified platelets loaded with(More)
We report a case of a marathon runner who presented with chest tightness, ST-segment depression, and ventricular fibrillation following treadmill exercise testing. At cardiac catheterization, the patient was found to have an isolated lesion in the left anterior descending (LAD) artery that was hemodynamically insignificant by accepted angiographic and(More)
