AIMS By combining C-reactive protein and serum albumin concentrations, the Glasgow Prognostic Score (GPS) provides valuable predictions of prognosis in patients with cancer. Both systemic inflammatory response and malnutrition are also common in patients with heart failure. We evaluated the efficacy of the GPS for predicting the prognoses of patients with(More)
We aimed to design a rapid and reliable method to identify coronary lesions at high risk for the no-reflow phenomenon before elective coronary stent implantation using integrated backscatter intravascular ultrasound (IB-IVUS). The no-reflow phenomenon occurring during elective percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) worsens patient prognosis, regardless of(More)
Objective: Based on currently available clinical evidence, we should use high-dose angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor (ACE-I) for patients with acute myocardial infarction (MI), initiating it at incremental doses to avoid excessive hypotension. Recent animal studies with acute MI models failed to demonstrate the superiority of the combination therapy(More)
