This study aims to investigate microRNA-195 (miR-195) expression in myocardial ischaemia-reperfusion (I/R) injury and the roles of miR-195 in cardiomyocyte apoptosis though targeting Bcl-2. A mouse model of I/R injury was established. MiR- 195 expression levels were detected by real-time quantitative PCR (qPCR), and the cardiomyocyte apoptosis was detected(More)
BACKGROUND Radiofrequency catheter ablation (RFCA) has been established as an effective and curative therapy for ventricular tachycardia (VT) and severely symptomatic premature ventricular contraction (PVC) from the outflow tract in structurally normal hearts. This study aimed to investigate electrophysiologic characteristics and effects of RFCA for(More)
OBJECTIVE To observe the ECG and electrophysiological characteristic of patients with idiopathic ventricular tachycardia (VT) and premature ventricular contraction (PVC) originating from left (LVOT) and right (RVOT) ventricular outflow tracts and assess the clinical effect of radio frequency catheter ablation (RFCA) on these patients. METHODS RFCA was(More)
To investigate the value of low-dose dobutamine stress real-time myocardial contrast echocardiography (RT-MCE) in the diagnosis of coronary heart disease (CHD). A total of 65 hospitalized patients with suspected or confirmed CHD were detected by RT-MCE combined with low-dose dobutamine stress (0.84 mg/kg). Perfusion curves were quantitatively analyzed using(More)

BACKGROUND Postoperative myocardial function and microcirculation of acute coronary syndrome (ACS) was assessed by myocardial contrast echocardiography (MCE). MATERIAL AND METHODS Eighty-nine ACS patients treated with percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) were detected by MCE and two-dimensional ultrasonography before and a month later after PCI(More)
BACKGROUND Many recipients of implantable cardiac electronic devices have atrial fibrillation (AF) occurrences after device implantation, even if there is no previous history of AF, and some of the episodes are asymptomatic. The purpose of this study was to evaluate trends in AF burden following early AF detection in patients treated with pacemakers(More)
We investigated the effects of Ginkgo biloba extract (GBE) and ginkgolide (GLD) on human ether-a-go-go-related gene (hERG)-encoded K(+) channels and its underlying mechanisms in the hERG-HEK293 cell line by determining GBE- and GLD-induced changes in action potential duration (APD), L-type calcium currents (ICa-L), and the intracellular calcium(More)
BACKGROUND 20-30% of patients do not benefit from CRT when the established selection criteria were applied. We hypothesized that a combined assessment of mechanical dyssynchrony, myocardial deformation and diastolic function would identify patients who would benefit most from CRT. METHOD In 36 CRT patients, clinical evaluation and echocardiography were(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the ECG and electrophysiological characteristic of idiopathic ventricular tachycardia (VT) and premature ventricular contraction (PVC) originating from ventricular outflow tract and assess the clinical effect of radiofrequency catheter ablation (RFCA) for treatment. METHODS 105 patients aged from 12 to 73 years old were treated with(More)
