Accurate assessment of coronary chronic total occlusion (CTO) lesion is essential to design an appropriate procedural strategy before revascularization. The present study aims to evaluate the significance of a single multislice computed tomography (MSCT) examination in patients with CTO lesion. We retrospectively analyzed the clinical data of 23 CTO lesions(More)
The Ca2+-sensitive cardiac troponin (cTn) is a hetero-trimer complex consisting of three subunits cTnC, cTnI, and cTnT, which has been recognized as an important biomarker and a potential target of cardiovascular diseases. Previously, several small-molecule agents such as levosimendan and pimobendan have been successfully developed to target this protein(More)
