μmol/l p=0.045), there was also a significant decrease in homocysteine levels at the end of 3rd month of metoprolol use when compared to baseline homocysteine levels (12.9±5.4 μmol/l vs 10.4±3.1 μmol/l p=0.011) and there was a significant difference in homocysteine levels between between 3rd and 6th months (11.7±3.6 μmol/l vs 10.4±3.1 μmol/l p=0.010). In accordance with previous findings (2-5), we found that betablocker therapy significantly decreased homocysteine levels in patients with CAE…

Aborted sudden death in the Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome.

[Prevalence and course of Wolf-Parkinson-White syndrome in a population of 138,048 subjects].

The higher prevalence of Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome in men decreases with age, and this decrease appears to be essentially due to the disappearance of the ventricular pre-excitation and not to an increased mortality.

Relation between clinical presentation and induced arrhythmias in the Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome.

Ventricular Preexcitation in Children and Young Adults: Atrial Myocarditis as a Possible Trigger of Sudden Death

A left accessory pathway was the most frequent substrate, and its subendocardial location supports the feasibility of catheter ablation.

Elevated plasma homocysteine levels in patients with isolated coronary artery ectasia

It is demonstrated that patients with coronary artery ectasia and coronary artery disease have increased plasma hyperhomocysteine levels compared with the controls, and it is suggested that hyperHomocysteinemia may play an important role in the pathogenesis of coronary arteries ectasia as in coronary arteries disease.

Risk of Sudden Death After Successful Accessory Atrioventricular Pathway Ablation in Resuscitated Patients with Wolff‐Parkinson‐White Syndrome

Test the hypothesis that in resuscitated patients with WPW syndrome, recurrences can be prevented by sole ablation of their accessory pathways by using AP Ablation.

β‐Adrenergic Stimulation Promotes Homocysteic Acid Release from Astrocyte Cultures: Evidence for a Role of Astrocytes in the Modulation of Synaptic Transmission

The present study provides the first evidence for an influence of β‐adrenergic receptor activation on the release of an excitatory amino acid from astrocytes and further supports the notion that glial‐neuronal interactions play a role in synaptic transmission.
