OBJECTIVE To compare the transradial approach and transfemoral approach for primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in Chinese patients with acute myocardium infarction (AMI). METHODS From August 2005 to September 2008, we randomly divided 200 AMI patients into transradial intervention (TRI) group and transfemoral intervention (TFI) group. The(More)
BACKGROUND CartoXP and CartoMerge have been used to treat atrial fibrillation (AF) for several years. Our randomized prospective study compared clinical outcomes of these two versions of three dimensional electroanatomic mapping system in guiding catheter ablation for paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (PAF). METHODS Eighty-one patients with symptomatic, drug(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the prevalence of peripheral arterial disease (PAD) complicated in metabolic syndrome (MS) and its risk factors. METHODS The clinical data of 2115 in-patients and out-patients with MS, 1132 males and 983 females, aged 67.6 +/- 5.1 (32 approximately 91), diagnosed and treated in several hospitals in Beijing and Shanghai, were(More)
BACKGROUND The transradial approach is regarded as a useful vascular site for coronary procedures. The aim of this study was to test whether 4Fr catheters assisted by ACIST variable rate injector system can produce comparable angiographic quality and reduce the risk of radial artery injury compared to hand manifold 6 Fr catheters. METHODS A total of 1816(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the effects of peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR) α/γ agonist on atherosclerotic plaque stabilization in diabetic LDL receptor knockout (LDLr-/-) mice. METHODS Female 4-week-old LDLr-/- mice fed with high-glucose and high-fat diet for 4 weeks were randomly divided into three groups (n = 15 each): control group (only(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Transradial access is an attractive approach for angiography or percutaneous coronary intervention. Different devices have been used to apply pressure locally at the site of arterial entry for achieving hemostasis. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of 2 different hemostatic devices on radial artery outcomes after(More)
BACKGROUND The role of alprostadil and statins in contrast-induced acute kidney injury (CI-AKI) is controversial. The purpose of this study was to explore the efficacy of combined therapy with alprostadil and statins in protecting renal function and preventing contrast-induced nephropathy (CIN) in patients undergoing coronary angiography. METHODS A total(More)
