Saphenous veins grafts (SVGs) continue to be used as conduits for coronary bypass surgery in nearly 350,000 patients annually in the United States. A possible genetic contribution to SVG longevity has not been well studied. We analyzed 168 single nucleotide polymorphisms from 150 candidate genes...
The aim of this study was to evaluate the prognostic value of Doppler echocardiographically derived coronary flow reserve (CFR) in assessing inotropic response in patients with idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy (IDC). One hundred thirty-two patients with IDC (90 men; mean age 62 ± 11 years) were...
Drug-eluting stents (DESs) have decreased the incidence of in-stent restenosis. Within the past 2 years several cases on late stent thrombosis (LST) have been reported. This study analyzed and reviewed all published cases of LST in DESs to explore possible trends not previously reported. We...
The Syntax score (SXscore) was recently developed as a comprehensive angiographic scoring system aiming to assist in patient selection and risk stratification of patients with extensive coronary artery disease undergoing contemporary revascularization. A validation of this angiographic...
Although 64-slice multidetector coronary computed tomography angiography (CTA) has been reported to have excellent test characteristics for the detection of significant coronary artery disease, current analytic approaches may not appropriately reflect the process of clinical decision making....
The SIRIUS study was a double-blinded, randomized trial of the sirolimus-eluting stent (SES) to evaluate its effect on the rate of restenosis. The present report is a retrospective analysis of short- and long-term outcomes of SESs compared with bare metal stents (BMSs) in a subgroup of patients...
In young patients, the accumulative burden of traditional cardiovascular risk factors may not be as significant as in an older population. Genetic risk factors were suggested to have a role in the early development of myocardial infarction (MI). However, data about the association between...
