Clinical Significance of ST Elevation in Lead aVR in Acute Pulmonary Embolism.
Prognostic stratification of patients with acute pulmonary embolism (PTE) is crucial in identifying patients who would benefit from more aggressive treatment. We aimed to examine the value of ST elevation in lead aVR (STEaVR ...
Delayed presentation of posttraumatic aortic false aneurysm with chronic cough.
A chronic posttraumatic false aneurysm of descending aorta in a 19-year-old man who had been involved in a car accident 8 months earlier is described. He presented with chronic cough, and on chest roentgenogram, a mass in ...
Factors associated with atrial fibrillation in rheumatic mitral stenosis.
Atrial fibrillation is a complication of mitral valve stenosis that causes several adverse neurologic outcomes. Our objective was to establish a mathematical model to predict the risk of atrial fibrillation in patients ...
Clinical and laboratory predictors of coronary slow flow in coronary angiography.
The coronary slow-flow phenomenon (CSFP) is a multifactorial angiographic finding with no established pathogenesis.To investigate the role of clinical profile and laboratory findings in patients with CSFP.We prospectively ...
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 ...
Is female gender associated with worse outcome after ST elevation myocardial infarction?
To investigate the impact of gender in outcomes of patients with ST segment myocardial infarction in a setting with limited access to primary percutaneous coronary intervention METHODS: In 1017 consecutive patients ...
Higher Frequency of Nocturnal Blood Pressure Dipping but Not Heart Rate Dipping in Inflammatory Bowel Disease.
Masked hypertension (MHTN) and lack of nocturnal dipping in blood pressure (BP) have been linked to the state of inflammation.We aimed to assess the frequency of nocturnal patterns of BP and heart rate (HR) in patients ...
The prognostic value of a prominent Q wave in lead (-)aVR in acute anterior wall myocardial infarction.
This study aimed to determine the association of a prominent Q wave in lead (-)aVR with clinical, echocardiographic and angiographic findings in anterior ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) and to evaluate the role ...
