OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to assess the diagnosis of myocarditis in patients presenting with acute myocardial infarction (MI) and normal coronary angiograms. BACKGROUND Most often in these patients, the etiologic diagnosis remains unclear once they are found to have normal coronary...
OBJECTIVES We investigated the effects of ischemic preconditioning (PC) on diabetic and failing human myocardium and the role of mitochondrial K ATP channels on the response in these diseased tissues. BACKGROUND There is conflicting evidence to suggest that PC is a healthy heart phenomenon....
OBJECTIVES We sought to compare the maternal and fetal outcomes of patients with severe mitral stenosis submitted to percutaneous balloon dilation versus open mitral valve commissurotomy (MVC) during pregnancy. BACKGROUND Heart failure in patients with mitral stenosis complicating pregnancy is a...
OBJECTIVES This study assessed the predictive value of preprocedural C-reactive protein (CRP) levels on six-month clinical and angiographic outcome in patients undergoing coronary stent implantation. BACKGROUND Recent data indicate that low-grade inflammation as detected by elevated CRP serum...
Electrical cardioversion of patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) is frequently performed to relieve symptoms and improve cardiac performance. Patients undergoing cardioversion are treated conventionally with therapeutic anticoagulation for three weeks before and four weeks after cardioversion...
OBJECTIVES The objective of this study was to test the hypothesis that external-beam radiation induces a chronic impairment of endothelium-dependent vasodilation. BACKGROUND Radiation therapy is used commonly in the treatment of cancer and is associated with an increased incidence of adverse...
OBJECTIVES The possible role of the ATP-sensitive potassium (K ATP ) channel in cardioprotection by Na + -H + exchange (NHE) inhibition was examined. BACKGROUND The K ATP channel is suggested to be involved not only in ischemic preconditioning but also in some pharmacological cardioprotection....
