Relationship of admission hematological indexes with myocardial reperfusion abnormalities in acute ST segment elevation myocardial infarction patients treated with primary percutaneous coronary
In patients with STEMI who are undergoing PCI, admission MPV may be valuable in discriminating a higher-risk patient subgroup and thus, may help in deciding the need for adjunctive therapy to improve the outcome. Expand
Relation of admission QRS duration with development of angiographic no-reflow in patients with acute ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction treated with primary percutaneous interventions.
QRS duration on admission may be valuable in predicting no-reflow in patients who underwent primary angioplasty and after adjusting all variables. Expand
Simplified Cardioneuroablation in the Treatment of Reflex Syncope, Functional AV Block, and Sinus Node Dysfunction
This work investigated the effectiveness of selective and/or stepwise RFCA of these areas via right atrium (RA) and/ or leftAtrium (LA) in the patients with recurrent syncope due to excessive vagal activity. Expand
Intracardiac thrombus in Behçet’s disease: four new cases and a comprehensive literature review
A comprehensive review of the relevant literature in MEDLINE and EMBASE from 1966 to 2014 to analyze cumulated data about ICTF in BD aimed to evaluate 93 cases of BD with ICT, and to compare the frequency of pulmonary, venous and arterial involvements in general Behçet population. Expand
Relationship between inflammation and atrial fibrillation in patients with isolated rheumatic mitral stenosis.
The study results indicated that hs-CRP plasma levels are associated with the presence of AF in patients with MS, which may have important implications for the development of new therapeutic and preventive approaches ofAF in the setting of MS. Expand
[Coronary artery ectasia: its frequency and relationship with atherosclerotic risk factors in patients undergoing cardiac catheterization].
The risk factors of CAD and the manner of clinical presentation were considerably similar in both groups and this situation was consistent with similar etiopathogenesis of two diseases. Expand
[Elevated serum uric acid levels in patients with isolated coronary artery ectasia].
This study is the first to demonstrate significantly increased SUA levels in patients with isolated CAE, and supports relevant data suggesting an association between endothelial function and the SUA level. Expand
Impact of transesophageal echocardiography during transseptal puncture on atrial fibrillation ablation
The aim of our study was to demonstrate the added value of routine transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) for correctly positioning the transseptal system in the fossa ovalis (FO), thus potentiallyExpand
Prediction of mid-term outcome after cryo-balloon ablation of atrial fibrillation using post-procedure high-sensitivity troponin level
A lower postablation hsTnI level may predict an increased AF recurrence rate, suggesting inadequate ablation of the PV antrum, and may be used as a non-invasive marker to predict the outcome of AF. Expand
A Novel Deep Inspiration Maneuver for Difficult Transseptal Puncture.
TSP by using the DI maneuver may be a reliable and safe method after failed conventional attempts and if there is any doubt about the correct location of the needle, additional imaging modalities have to be used. Expand
