Chagas’ heart disease is a common form of cardiomyopathy in Latin America and an important cause of cardiac morbidity and mortality there. Left ventricular (LV) apical aneurysm and LV dysfunction are frequent findings in Chagas’ cardiomyopathy. Because cardiac shape has important implications...
The present study was conducted to assess the preventive effect of combined treatment with probucol, an antioxidant, and cilostazol, a phosphodiesterase inhibitor, against poststenting restenosis. Study patients were randomized to 4 modality groups 1 week before stenting: control, probucol (500...
The aim of this study was to assess day-to-day variability of left ventricular (LV) volume and ejection fraction (EF) calculated from 3-dimensional echocardiography (3-DE) and to compare the reproducibility of the measurement with magnetic resonance imaging. Forty-six subjects were examined...
Exercise-induced ST-segment elevation and pseudonormalization of negative T waves (ST-T segment changes) in infarct leads indicate myocardial viability after Q-wave myocardial infarcts in some patients and may therefore identify patients who will benefit from revascularization. Global left...
In this study, we sought to determine the use of transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) as the primary imaging technique to assist in the placement of endovascular catheters during minimally invasive, port-access cardiac surgery. The recent development of endovascular catheters that are placed...
Two-dimensional echocardiography (2-DE) and Doppler methods are generally used for assessing mechanisms and severity of mitral regurgitation (MR). Recently, 3-dimensional echocardiography (3-DE) has been applied successfully in various cardiac disorders, but its value in evaluating the mechanism...
It has been shown that β-adrenergic blocking agents may reduce the rate of aortic root dilation and the development of aortic complications in patients with the Marfan syndrome. This may be due to β–blocker-induced changes in aortic stiffness, of which distensibility and pulse wave velocity...
