Relief and Recurrence of Congestion During and After Hospitalization for Acute Heart Failure: Insights From Diuretic Optimization Strategy Evaluation in Acute Decompensated Heart Failure (DOSE-AHF) and Cardiorenal Rescue Study in Acute Decompensated Heart Failure (CARESS-HF).
(Circ Heart Fail, 2015-07)
BACKGROUND: Congestion is the most frequent cause for hospitalization in acute decompensated heart failure. Although decongestion is a major goal of acute therapy, it is unclear how the clinical components of congestion ...
Downstream coronary effects of drug-eluting stents.
(Am Heart J, 2011-10)
BACKGROUND: Antiproliferative agents used in drug-eluting stents (DES) attenuate atherosclerosis, yet DES implantation has been linked to endothelial dysfunction. The downstream effects of DES on new lesion formation have ...
Pulmonary vein isolation for the treatment of drug-refractory atrial fibrillation in adults with congenital heart disease.
(Congenit Heart Dis, 2012-07)
BACKGROUND: Atrial fibrillation (AF) is a common arrhythmia in adults with congenital heart disease (CHD). Long-term antiarrhythmic therapy (AAT) in these patients has significant shortcomings. The safety and efficacy of ...
Effect of obesity on B-type natriuretic peptide levels in patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension.
(Am J Cardiol, 2012-09-15)
Brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) levels are lower in obese patients with left ventricular failure than in their comparably ill, leaner counterparts. The effect of obesity on BNP in patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension ...
The effect of gemfibrozil, niacin and cholestyramine combination therapy on metabolic syndrome in the Armed Forces Regression Study.
(Am J Med Sci, 2011-05)
INTRODUCTION: Metabolic syndrome is a powerful predictor of cardiovascular events independent of overt diabetes. Dietary restriction and weight loss modify metabolic syndrome components. This study addresses whether combination ...
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)
Evolutionary Divergence of Gene and Protein Expression in the Brains of Humans and Chimpanzees.
(Genome Biol Evol, 2015-07-10)
Although transcriptomic profiling has become the standard approach for exploring molecular differences in the primate brain, very little is known about how the expression levels of gene transcripts relate to downstream protein ...
Cognitive Function: Is There More to Anticoagulation in Atrial Fibrillation Than Stroke?
(J Am Heart Assoc, 2015-08-03)
Perception Versus Actual Performance in Timely Tissue Plasminogen Activation Administration in the Management of Acute Ischemic Stroke.
(J Am Heart Assoc, 2015-07-22)
BACKGROUND: Timely thrombolytic therapy can improve stroke outcomes. Nevertheless, the ability of US hospitals to meet guidelines for intravenous tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) remains suboptimal. What is unclear is ...
