    • Association of anemia and long-term survival in patients with pulmonary hypertension. 

      Krasuski, Richard A; Hart, Stephen A; Smith, Brad; Wang, Andrew; Harrison, J Kevin; Bashore, Thomas M (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 ...
    • Atheromatous disease of the aorta and perioperative stroke. 

      Andersen, Nicholas D; Hart, Stephen A; Devendra, Ganesh P; Kim, Esther SH; Johnston, Douglas R; Schroder, Jacob N; Krasuski, Richard A (J Thorac Cardiovasc Surg, 2017-09-14)
    • Health insurance and racial disparities in pulmonary hypertension outcomes. 

      Parikh, Kishan S; Stackhouse, Kathryn A; Hart, Stephen A; Bashore, Thomas M; Krasuski, Richard A (Am J Manag Care, 2017-08)
      OBJECTIVES: Pulmonary hypertension portends a poorer prognosis for blacks versus white populations, but the underlying reasons are poorly understood. We investigated associations of disease characteristics, insurance status, ...
    • Impact of fibrinogen levels on angiographic progression and 12-year survival in the armed forces regression study. 

      Devendra, Ganesh P; Hart, Stephen A; Whitney, Edwin J; Krasuski, Richard A (Angiology, 2010-05)
      We assessed the role of fibrinogen levels on angiographic progression and long-term survival among 111 patients with coronary disease enrolled in the Armed Forces Regression Study (AFREGS). Baseline fibrinogen levels and ...
    • Modified INOvent for delivery of inhaled nitric oxide during cardiac MRI. 

      Devendra, Ganesh P; Hart, Stephen A; Kim, Yuli Y; Setser, Randy M; Flamm, Scott D; Krasuski, Richard A (Magn Reson Imaging, 2011-10)
      BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to assess the feasibility of delivering NO through a modified system to allow clearance of the magnetic field and thus compatibility with cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR). Nitric oxide ...
    • PINOT NOIR: pulmonic insufficiency improvement with nitric oxide inhalational response. 

      Hart, Stephen A; Devendra, Ganesh P; Kim, Yuli Y; Flamm, Scott D; Kalahasti, Vidyasagar; Arruda, Janine; Walker, Esteban; ... (11 authors) (J Cardiovasc Magn Reson, 2013-09-04)
      BACKGROUND: Tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) repair and pulmonary valvotomy for pulmonary stenosis (PS) lead to progressive pulmonary insufficiency (PI), right ventricular enlargement and dysfunction. This study assessed whether ...
    • Pulmonary hypertension and elevated transpulmonary gradient in patients with mitral stenosis. 

      Hart, Stephen A; Krasuski, Richard A; Wang, Andrew; Kisslo, Katherine; Harrison, J Kevin; Bashore, Thomas M (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. 

      Krasuski, Richard A; Devendra, Ganesh P; Hart, Stephen A; Wang, Andrew; Harrison, J Kevin; Bashore, Thomas M (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 ...
    • When 'blue babies' grow up: What you need to know about tetralogy of Fallot. 

      Fox, David; Devendra, Ganesh P; Hart, Stephen A; Krasuski, Richard A (Cleve Clin J Med, 2010-11)
      Most babies born with tetralogy of Fallot undergo corrective surgery and survive to adulthood. However, as they get older they are prone to a number of long-term problems, and they often do not receive expert-level follow-up ...
