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 ...
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 ...
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 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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
