      Benjamin, Daniel Kelly; Cabell, Christopher Hayden; Chu, Vivian Hou; Corey, Ralph; Fowler, Vance Garrison Jr; Lalani, Tahaniyat; Wang, Andrew (2010-03)
      Background— The impact of early surgery on mortality in patients with native valve endocarditis (NVE) is unresolved. This study sought to evaluate valve surgery compared with medical therapy for NVE and to identify ...
    • Association of anemia and long-term survival in patients with pulmonary hypertension. 

      Bashore, TM; Harrison, JK; Hart, Stephen A; Krasuski, Richard Andrew; Smith, Bradley; Wang, Andrew (Int J Cardiol, 2011-08-04)
      BACKGROUND: Anemia is a marker of worsened clinical outcome in patients with heart failure from left ventricular dysfunction. Pulmonary hypertension often results in right ventricular dysfunction. Accordingly we sought to ...
    • Pulmonary hypertension and elevated transpulmonary gradient in patients with mitral stenosis. 

      Bashore, TM; Harrison, JK; Hart, Stephen A; Kisslo, K; Krasuski, Richard Andrew; Wang, Andrew (J Heart Valve Dis, 2010-11)
      BACKGROUND AND AIM OF THE STUDY: Pulmonary hypertension frequently complicates mitral stenosis, with a subset of these patients exhibiting pressures well in excess of their mitral valve hemodynamics. The prevalence of this ...
    • Response to inhaled nitric oxide predicts survival in patients with pulmonary hypertension. 

      Bashore, TM; Devendra, Ganesh P; Harrison, JK; Hart, Stephen A; Krasuski, Richard Andrew; Wang, Andrew (J Card Fail, 2011-04)
      OBJECTIVE: To examine the ability of vasodilator response to predict survival in a diverse cohort of patients with pulmonary hypertension (PH). PATIENTS & METHODS: A total of 214 consecutive treatment-naive patients referred ...
