The hospital charts and billing records of 250 consecutive admissions for percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) at a university hospital were reviewed. Clinical characteristics, performing physician, angiographic features of the dilated lesion, procedural outcome, length of stay,...
In summary, 3 patients with HC and LV apical diverticula of various sizes are described. All 3 had morphologic evidence of severe midventricular obstruction, including 2 with documentation of greatly elevated LV systolic pressure and marked LV outflow pressure gradients.
The purpose of this study was to determine the long-term outcome of patients with bundle branch block (BBB) who have no clinical evidence of cardiovascular disease. Among 110,000 participants in a screening program, 310 subjects with BBB without apparent or suspected heart disease were...
In summary, we conclude that lipid screening can be introduced into the emergency department clinical pathway for evaluation and treatment of patients admitted for acute chest pain or myocardial infarction despite the nonfasting state of most such patients by use of any of 3 methods of LDL...
Transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) is accepted as the method of choice for the diagnosis of a patent foramen ovale (PFO). However, direct anatomic confirmation regarding the presence or absence of a PFO on transesophageal imaging has been obtained in only a limited number of patients....
In conclusion, dobutamine stress echocardiography is an accurate method for diagnosis of vascular compromise in patients after CABG and provides useful data for selection of patients for whom coronary angiography may be indicated.
To assess the effect of regular and high-dose dipyridamole on coronary flow velocity in the left anterior descending artery (LAD), and to determine whether assessment of coronary flow velocity reserve (CVFR) is more sensitive for detection of ischemia than standard echocardiographic criteria, 47...
Cardiovascular risk factors were analyzed in 4,849 male participants, aged 40 to 65 years, in an 8-year follow-up of the Münster Heart Study (Prospective Cardiovascular Münster Study; PROCAM). One hundred eighty-one definite nonfatal myocardial infarctions, 49 fatal myocardial infarctions, and...
In a referral normal cardiac population, endothelium-independent coronary relaxation is nearly always normal, but endothelium-dependent relaxation may be depressed in a significant proportion of patients. Further study of the natural history of referral normal subjects with endothelial...
Exercise testing is often performed in persons with cardiac disease to measure their functional capacity. Physical activity questionnaires assessing functional capacity have been used as a low-cost and convenient alternative to exercise testing, but have not been well validated against measured...
