OBJECTIVE To study whether CETP TaqIB,KCNE1 S38G and eNOS T-786C genetic polymorphisms are associated with non-valvular atrial fibrillation in the Han population from Zhejiang province. METHODS Polymerase chain reaction restriction fragment length polymorphism assay was used to detect the distribution of alleles and genotypes of CETP TaqIB, KCNE1 S38G and(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the left ventricular longitudinal rotation (LR) in patients with dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM). METHODS Conventional echocardiography (GE-Vivid7) was performed in 35 healthy subjects and 42 DCM patients. Left atrial diameter was measured by M-mode echocardiography, left ventricular end-systolic, end-diastolic volume and left ventricular(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to observe the rotation patterns at the papillary muscle plane in the Left Ventricle(LV) with normal subjects using two-dimensional speckle tracking imaging(2D-STI). METHODS We acquired standard of the basal, the papillary muscle and the apical short-axis images of the LV in 64 subjects to estimate the LV rotation(More)
OBJECTIVE To study whether the polymorphisms of TaqIB of cholesteryl transfer protein (CETP) gene and 1444C/T of C reactive protein (CRP) gene are associated with non-valvular atrial fibrillation in the Chinese Han population. METHODS Polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphism (PCR-RFLP) assay was used to detect the distribution of(More)
