Pharmacologic management of perioperative pulmonary hypertension.
(J Cardiovasc Pharmacol, 2014-04)
Perioperative pulmonary hypertension can originate from an established disease or acutely develop within the surgical setting. Patients with increased pulmonary vascular resistance are consequently at greater risk ...
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 ...
Right-sided heart catheterization: de rigueur in sarcoidosis?
Two Cases of Late Shone Syndrome With Pulmonary Hypertension: Heart-Lung Transplant or Valve Surgery?
(World J Pediatr Congenit Heart Surg, 2016-01)
Two cases of Shone syndrome with severe mitral and aortic valve problems and pulmonary hypertension were referred for heart-lung transplantation. Severely elevated pulmonary vascular resistance (PVR) was confirmed as was ...
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 ...
Response to inhaled nitric oxide predicts survival in patients with pulmonary hypertension.
(J Card Fail, 2011-04)
OBJECTIVE: To examine the ability of vasodilator response to predict survival in a diverse cohort of patients with pulmonary hypertension (PH). PATIENTS & METHODS: A total of 214 consecutive treatment-naive patients referred ...
Conflicts of Interest and Outcomes of Cardiovascular Trials.
(Am J Cardiol, 2016-03-01)
Conflicts of interests have long been recognized as potential sources of influence in the conduct and reporting of clinical trials. This controversy was again rekindled after the publication of the latest statin guidelines ...
Tricuspid regurgitation and right ventricular function after mitral valve surgery with or without concomitant tricuspid valve procedure.
(J Thorac Cardiovasc Surg, 2013-11)
OBJECTIVES: To study the effect of mitral valve repair with or without concomitant tricuspid valve repair on functional tricuspid regurgitation and right ventricular function. METHODS: From 2001 to 2007, 1833 patients with ...
