Right ventricular infarction as an independent predictor of prognosis after acute inferior myocardial infarction.
TLDR
Right ventricular involvement during acute inferior myocardial infarction can be accurately diagnosed by the presence of ST-segment elevation in lead V4R, a finding that is a strong, independent predictor of major complications and in-hospital mortality.
Prognostic significance of right ventricular afterload stress detected by echocardiography in patients with clinically suspected pulmonary embolism.
TLDR
The presence of right ventricular afterload stress detected by echocardiography is a major determinant of short term prognosis in patients with clinically suspected acute pulmonary embolism.
Association between thrombolytic treatment and the prognosis of hemodynamically stable patients with major pulmonary embolism: results of a multicenter registry.
TLDR
The results of this study suggest that thrombolysis may favorably affect the clinical outcome of hemodynamically stable patients with major pulmonary embolism.
A comparison of surgical and medical therapy for atrial septal defect in adults.
TLDR
The surgical repair of an atrial septal defect in patients over 40 years of age, as compared with medical therapy, increases long-term survival and limits the deterioration of function due to heart failure, but surgically treated patients should be followed closely for the onset of atrial arrhythmias so as to reduce the risk of thromboembolic complications.
Safety of Transesophageal Echocardiography: A Multicenter Survey of 10,419 Examinations
TLDR
This multicenter survey documents that TEE studies are associated with an acceptable low risk when used by experienced operators under proper safety conditions.
Importance of Cardiac Troponins I and T in Risk Stratification of Patients With Acute Pulmonary Embolism
TLDR
Cardiac troponins I and cTnT may be a novel, particularly useful tool for optimizing the management strategy in patients with acute PE, and there was obvious escalation of in-hospital mortality, the rate of complications, and the incidence of recurrent PE.
Prognostic value of the ECG on admission in patients with acute major pulmonary embolism
TLDR
ECG may be a useful, simple, non-costly tool for initial risk stratification of patients with acute major pulmonary embolism, and a significant independent predictor of outcome.
Analysis of Creatine Kinase, CK‐MB, Myoglobin, and Troponin T Time‐Activit Curves for Early Assessment of Coronary Artery Reperfusion After Intravenous Thrombolysis
TLDR
Serial measurements of creatine kinase, its isoenzyme CK-MB, myoglobin, and troponin T were done to determine their value for noninvasive prediction of coronary artery patency and myoglobin appears to have advantages because of its earlier rise, yielding a better negative predictive value and a higher area under the ROC curve for determination of its early initial slopes.
