Coronary artery dimensions: Iranian population versus Indo-Asians and Caucasians
Background The dimensions of the coronary arteries have been shown to vary among ethnic groups. There are no data available regarding the normal size of coronary arteries in Iranians. This study aimed to investigate normal ...
Comparison between Negative T waves characteristics in acute coronary syndrome and pulmonary embolism
Background: Electrocardiogram (ECG) is the first available modality used in patients with chest pain and dyspnea in emergency rooms. We aimed to study differences between acute coronary syndrome (ACS) and acute pulmonary ...
Comparison between covered and bare Cheatham-platinum stents for endovascular treatment of patients with native post-ductal aortic coarctation: Immediate and intermediate-term results
Objectives: This study sought to evaluate the outcomes of endovascular treatment with covered versus bare Cheatham-platinum stents (NuMed, Hopkinton, New York) in coarctation of aorta (CoA) patients. Background: Covered ...
Electrocardiography changes in acute aortic dissection—association with troponin leak, coronary anatomy, and prognosis
Background Electrocardiography (ECG) offers some information that may be used to prognosticate acute type A aortic dissection (AAOD) for short- and long-term mortality. Methods We retrospectively analyzed the electrocardiograms ...
Patient's radiation exposure in coronary angiography and angioplasty: The impact of different projections
Introduction: We aimed to determine angiography projections with lower Dose Area Product (DAP) rate by measuring the mean DAP and fluoroscopy times in coronary angiography (CAG) and percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) ...
Association between HbA1c levels with severity of coronary artery disease and short-term outcomes of acute ST-elevation myocardial infarction in nondiabetic patients
Background: The severity of coronary artery disease (CAD) is directly related to the quality of glucose control in diabetic patients. Additionally, mortality after an acute coronary syndrome is higher in patients with ...
