Incremenal Value of Cardiac Magnetic Resonance for Assessing Pulmonic Valve Regurgitation.
(The Journal of heart valve disease, 2015-07)
Cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) is the 'gold standard' for quantifying pulmonic regurgitation (PR) in adults with congenital heart disease, but remains costly and is less readily available than echocardiography. Qualitative ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
Lateral caval flap repair of adult sinus venosus atrial septal defect: A natural novel approach.
