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. ...
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 ...
Early clopidogrel versus prasugrel use among contemporary STEMI and NSTEMI patients in the US: insights from the National Cardiovascular Data Registry.
(J Am Heart Assoc, 2014-04-14)
BACKGROUND: P2Y12 antagonist therapy improves outcomes in acute myocardial infarction (MI) patients. Novel agents in this class are now available in the US. We studied the introduction of prasugrel into contemporary MI practice ...
Alglucosidase alfa enzyme replacement therapy as a therapeutic approach for glycogen storage disease type III.
(Mol Genet Metab, 2013-02)
We investigated the feasibility of using recombinant human acid-α glucosidase (rhGAA, Alglucosidase alfa), an FDA approved therapy for Pompe disease, as a treatment approach for glycogen storage disease type III (GSD III). ...
Torsemide versus furosemide in heart failure patients: insights from Duke University Hospital.
(J Cardiovasc Pharmacol, 2015-05)
Furosemide has historically been the primary loop diuretic in heart failure patients despite data suggesting potential advantages with torsemide. We used the Duke Echocardiography Lab Database to investigate patients admitted ...
Relationship Between Cancer and Cardiovascular Outcomes Following Percutaneous Coronary Intervention.
(J Am Heart Assoc, 2015-07-06)
BACKGROUND: Cardiovascular disease and cancer increasingly coexist, yet relationships between cancer and long-term cardiovascular outcomes post-percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) are not well studied. METHODS AND RESULTS: ...
Reduced length of hospital stay in colorectal surgery after implementation of an enhanced recovery protocol.
(Anesth Analg, 2014-05)
BACKGROUND: Enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) is a multimodal approach to perioperative care that combines a range of interventions to enable early mobilization and feeding after surgery. We investigated the feasibility, ...
Outcomes of Patients with Critical Limb Ischaemia in the EUCLID Trial.
(European journal of vascular and endovascular surgery : the official journal of the European Society for Vascular Surgery, 2018-01)
OBJECTIVES:Critical limb ischaemia (CLI) implies an increased risk of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality, and the optimal antithrombotic treatment is not established. DESIGN, MATERIALS, METHODS:The EUCLID trial investigated ...
Ticagrelor versus clopidogrel in patients with symptomatic peripheral artery disease and prior coronary artery disease: Insights from the EUCLID trial.
(Vascular medicine (London, England), 2018-12)
Patients with peripheral artery disease (PAD) are at heightened risk of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. We sought to evaluate the risk of concomitant coronary artery disease (CAD) in patients with symptomatic PAD ...
