Association of anemia and long-term survival in patients with pulmonary hypertension.
(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 ...
Long-term outcome and impact of surgery on adults with coronary arteries originating from the opposite coronary cusp.
BACKGROUND: An anomalous coronary artery from the opposite sinus of Valsalva may increase sudden death risk in children and young adults, and surgical intervention is often recommended. The impact of this lesion when recognized ...
Pulmonary hypertension and elevated transpulmonary gradient in patients with mitral stenosis.
(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 ...
Partial anomalous pulmonary venous connection and pulmonary arterial hypertension.
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Isolated partial anomalous pulmonary venous connection (PAPVC) has been implicated as a cause of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH); however this condition is often overlooked in the diagnostic ...
Provoked exercise desaturation in patent foramen ovale and impact of percutaneous closure.
(JACC Cardiovasc Interv, 2012-04)
OBJECTIVES: This study was designed to assess the prevalence of provoked exercise desaturation (PED) in patients with patent foramen ovale (PFO) referred for cardiovascular evaluation and to evaluate the impact of PFO closure. ...
Lateral caval flap repair of adult sinus venosus atrial septal defect: A natural novel approach.
(J Thorac Cardiovasc Surg, 2012-10)
Impact of increases in high-density lipoprotein cholesterol on cardiovascular outcomes during the armed forces regression study.
(J Cardiovasc Pharmacol Ther, 2010-12)
INTRODUCTION: high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol is a well-established inverse risk factor for cardiovascular disease. The extent to which cardiovascular risk can be modified through changes in HDL, however, is less ...
Comparison of long-term postoperative sequelae in patients with tetralogy of Fallot versus isolated pulmonic stenosis.
(Am J Cardiol, 2014-07-15)
Patients with tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) after complete repair and pulmonic stenosis (PS) after surgical valvotomy often develop significant pulmonic regurgitation (PR) that eventually requires valve replacement. Although ...
Off-label closure during CLOSURE study.
(J Invasive Cardiol, 2012-11)
BACKGROUND: The role of percutaneous closure of patent foramen ovale (PFO) in patients with cryptogenic stroke or transient ischemic attack remains controversial. Registry data have suggested considerable benefit of closure ...
PINOT NOIR: pulmonic insufficiency improvement with nitric oxide inhalational response.
(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 ...
