We evaluated adherence to statin therapy and LDL cholesterol goal attainment in type 2 diabetic and secondary prevention patients. STUDY DESIGN A total of 194 patients (131 men, 63 women; mean age 57 ± 11 years) who had been on(More)
PURPOSE We aimed to examine the incidence of patent foramen ovale (PFO) and atrial septal aneurysms (ASA) in the Turkish population using coronary computed tomography angiography (CTA); assess the feasibility of coronary CTA for PFO diagnosis by conducting a comparison with transthoracic echocardiography (TTE); and determine the diagnostic role and(More)
Anteroseptal accessory pathways are relatively rare. Because of the close proximity of the atrioventricular (AV) node, ablation of these accessory pathways has the potential to result in AV block. The anteroseptal region is adjacent to the noncoronary cusp, allowing anteroseptal accessory pathways to be ablated from the noncoronary cusp. A 34 year-old male(More)
We present a 20-year-old male patient with cor triatriatum sinistrum with fenestrations and long-standing dyspnea on exertion, fatigue, and palpitation. An apical early to mid-systolic murmur of grade I-II/VI was heard on cardiac auscultation. Electrocardiography showed sinus rhythm and an incomplete right bundle branch block. Transthoracic echocardiography(More)
