OBJECTIVES We tried to elucidate angiographical predictors of no-reflow and to determine a preferable recanalization therapy based on the morphology of lesions. METHODS Seventy-six patients were randomly assigned into groups to receive primary angioplasty (n = 41) or intracoronary thrombolysis (n = 35). Based on angiography, occlusive infarct-related(More)
We analyzed the acute, direct effects of nitroglycerin (NTG) tape on the coronary arteries and hemodynamics in 38 patients who underwent coronary angiography. The diameters of the 3 main coronary arteries were compared among the angiograms obtained at baseline, 15 minutes following transdermal administration of 10 mg (8 patients) or 25 mg (30 patients) of(More)
To clarify whether silent cortical strokes (SCS) could be a predictor of symptomatic stroke in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF), 72 patients with AF (50 with chronic AF, 22 with paroxysmal AF) were studied. Patients with mitral stenosis, history of myocardial infarction, or dilated cardiomyopathy were excluded from this study. Using cranial magnetic(More)
Torsades de Pointes is an atypical ventricular tachycardia, a characteristic sinusoidal twisting of QRS complex around the base line, first described by Dessertenne et al in 1966. Since their original description, many literatures including both reviews and case reports have been issued. However, the exact causes, mechanism and its true relation to usual(More)
To investigate the relationship of coronary artery disease and silent cerebral infarction, 50 patients who underwent coronary arteriography and cranial magnetic resonance imaging were studied. The patients were divided into three groups. The incidence of silent cerebral infarction (chiefly lacunar infarction) was significantly higher in patients with old(More)
To determine which reperfusion therapy for acute myocardial infarction (AMI) is advantageous to avoid subsequent thrombotic coronary occlusion, 8 patients with AMI were studied. Four of them (group S) underwent sequential PTCA following unsuccessful intracoronary thrombolysis and the others (group D) direct PTCA. Serial changes in plasma plasminogen(More)
Gastric cancer concomitant with pregnancy is rare. In order to determine the clinical problems and practical guidelines on this particular subject, 61 Japanese patients were analyzed for clinical features and the results of obstetric and surgical treatment corresponding to the time of detection of the gastric cancer during the gestational period. The data(More)
