64-Slice multidetector computed tomographic angiography and invasive coronary angiography in diagnosis of significant coronary artery stenosis
Introduction: Introduction of 64-slice multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) has resulted in a great improvement of the non-invasive coronary artery imaging. The present study aimed to evaluate the diagnostic accuracy ...
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 ...
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 ...
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) ...
The value of endothelium dependent vasodilation in diagnosing coronary artery disease and its comparison with the results of routine diagnostic tests
Objective: To determine the predictive value of flow-mediated vasodilation (FMD) compared with angina pectoris, exercise electrocardiography, and myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI). Methods: This study was carried out in ...
