Introduction It has been demonstrated that skin tissue cholesterol (SkinTc) is associated with angiographic disease. Now, we further delineate the relative risk of multivessel disease (>50% stenosis in at least two vessels) in the conjoint presence of high SkinTc and high traditional risk burden.
Background High-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hsCRP) is promoted as an independent predictor of atherosclerotic risk. In addition, cardiorespiratory fitness is inversely related to hsCRP in single-sex cross-sectional analyses. Our objective was to determine if modulating fitness with exercise...
Background A variety of imaging modalities have implicated impaired myocardial perfusion in the pathogenesis of acute coronary syndromes (ACSs).
Many cardiovascular experts have called for the creation of specialized myocardial infarction centers and networks in the United States analogous to the current model for major trauma. Patients suffering ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) and trauma share an essential feature that makes...
Background Various randomized studies evidenced that immunoadsorption (IA) repeated at monthly intervals induced acute and prolonged hemodynamic benefit in patients with severe heart failure due to dilated cardiomyopathy. Some findings indicate that the use of only one course of IA therapy may...
Background Defective endothelial function has been shown in dilated cardiomyopathy. Therefore, improvement in endothelial function after low-molecular-weight heparin (LMWH) therapy may be clinically beneficial. Consequently, the effect of adjunct enoxaparin, a LMWH, on standard treatment of...
Background Early revascularization (ERV) in patients with ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) and cardiogenic shock (CS) reduces mortality rates. Patients admitted to hospitals without revascularization capability have high mortality rates and are not often transferred for ERV.
Myocardial perfusion scintigraphy is a well validated noninvasive method of evaluating for significant coronary artery disease, especially in cases where electrocardiographic changes are nondiagnostic, including left bundle-branch block. However, such testing with a technetium Tc 99m agent is...
