OBJECTIVE Aim of this study was to investigate the value of systolic indices of tricuspid valve annular motion measured by tissue Doppler imaging for the diagnosis right ventricular failure in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). METHODS Patients with COPD with right heart failure symptoms and/or right ventricular dilatation were(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIM Recent studies have documented that elevation of C-reactive protein (CRP) levels after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) have been predictive of adverse outcome. This study was performed to test the hypothesis that preprocedural use of naproxen sodium is associated with a reduction in the extent of inflammatory response and(More)
BACKGROUND A recent ex vivo study suggests that the metabolic activation of clopidogrel is catalyzed by cytochrom P450 (CYP) 3A4 and is competitively inhibited by atorvastatin, but not pravastatin. OBJECTIVE To determine whether the incidence of procedure-related myocardial injury, assessed by cardiac troponin T (cTnT) release, is altered when clopidogrel(More)
BACKGROUND Increased left ventricular mass (LVM) is an independent risk factor for cardiovascular morbidity and mortality, and may be used for risk stratification. Two-dimensional echocardiography, the most commonly used technique for estimation of LVM, uses the third power of the left ventricular internal diameter (LVID) for the calculation. OBJECTIVES(More)
