BACKGROUND Thickening of mitral leaflets in rheumatic mitral valve stenosis is well described in necropsy studies; however, volume computation of the thickening mitral leaflets has not been attempted. 4trial fibrillation is one of the complications of rheumatic mitral stenosis. Quantitative assessment of thickened mitral valve and its relation to clinical(More)
The increase in life expectancy in developing countries and as a result of increasing obesity and other life style changes, the global incidence of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is increasing. The purpose of this study was to investigate the prevalence of T2DM and impaired fasting glucose (IFG) in semi-urban population of Nepal and to compare the(More)
Excessive accumulation of one or more of the major lipids in plasma can produce a marked increase in the risk of coronary heart diseases and other vascular complications. During and after pregnancy, changes in the levels of total cholesterol, triglyceride, low density lipoprotein-cholesterol, and high density lipoprotein-cholesterol have been described, but(More)
BACKGROUND Acute myocardial infarction (AMI) is complicated by cardiogenic shock in 7~10% of patients. Mortality rate is exceedingly high and reaches 70-80% in those treated conservatively. Large thrombolytic trials demonstrate 60% mortality with most effective thrombolytic agent. METHODS In between September 2005 to August 2008 total PCI in Shahid(More)
Dyslipidemia is one of the major risk factors of coronary artery disease. Present study was aimed to find out the lipid profile of non-diabetic adult Nepalese population (n = 454; M: 180 and F: 274; Mean age: 42.8+/-15.5 years). The mean +/- SD (mg/dl) level of total cholesterol (TC), triglyceride (TG), low density lipoprotein (LDL) and high density(More)
BACKGROUND Rheumatic heart disease remains a major public health problem in developing countries with its very high prevalence. Rheumatic and congenital heart disease are significant causes of morbidity and mortality among Nepalese schoolchildren. The aim of our study was to determine the prevalence of rheumatic and congenital heart disease among(More)
OBJECTIVE Limited knowledge of heart attack symptoms may prevent patients from seeking time-dependent thrombolytic therapy, an intervention that offers impressive survival benefit. Previous studies carried out in developed countries demonstrated a deficit of knowledge about a wide range of heart attack symptoms. The aim of this study was to describe(More)
UNLABELLED Assessment of carotid artery lumen diameter and intima-media thickness is becoming as a surrogate marker of early evaluation of cardiovascular disease. Present study aims to describe the normal carotid dimensions in healthy adults of both sexes. A total of 123 healthy volunteers including 65 men and 58 women, aged 21 to 60 years (mean +/- SD;(More)
BACKGROUND Carotid intima-media thickness (CIMT) and carotid plaques are non-invasive surrogate markers of early evaluation of coronary artery disease (CAD) and sub clinical atherosclerosis. The objective of the study was to evaluate CIMT and carotid plaques in less than 45 years old Nepalese patients with angiographically proven CAD. METHODS A total of(More)
