The electrical activity of atria can be demonstrated by P waves on surface electrocardiogram (ECG). Atrial electromechanical delay (AEMD) measured with tissue Doppler imaging (TDI) echocardiography can be a useful non-invasive method for evaluating atrial conduction features. We investigated whether AEMD is prolonged in patients with chronic obstructive(More)
BACKGROUND Non-invasive prediction of paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (PAF) is one of the most recent interests of cardiology. AIM The current study investigates the relationship between the atrial electromechanical coupling time (EMCT) and PAF. PATIENTS AND METHODS A group of 35 patients with PAF was compared with a group of 37 subjects without PAF.(More)
BACKGROUND Incidence of diastolic dyssynchrony (DD) and its impact on functional recovery of left ventricle (LV) after ST segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) is not known. METHODS Consecutive patients with STEMI who underwent successful revascularization were prospectively enrolled. Echocardiography with tissue Doppler imaging was performed(More)
OBJECTIVES To investigate safety and efficacy of left Judkins (JL) catheter as a single multipurpose catheter in transradial coronary angiography (TRA). BACKGROUND Most operators use standard femoral catheters instead of special multipurpose transradial catheters during TRA. METHODS Patients undergoing TRA through right radial artery (RRA) were(More)
Patients with angiographically normal coronary arteries sometimes exhibit delayed clearance of contrast medium. This contrast layering (CL) was tested with intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) and markers of endothelial dysfunction and oxidative stress. The study group (n = 26) consisted of patients with CL and the control group (n = 32) comprised patients with(More)
