Background: Severe vasodilatation is commonly seen upon weaning from cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB). We examined the effects of vasopressin (arginine vasopressin [AVP]) on acute kidney injury (AKI) in postoperative period. ...
The prognostic value of a prominent Q wave in lead (-)aVR in acute anterior wall myocardial infarction.

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 ...
