Use of vaptans in treatment of hyponatremia
Hyponatremia is the most prevalent electrolyte imbalance, and may be present in up to 30% of hospitalized patients. It is an important predictor of in-hospital mortality. Irrespective of the reason underlying hyponatremia, ...
Epicardial adipose tissue thickness is associated with myocardial infarction and impaired coronary perfusion
Objective: Epicardial adipose tissue (EAT) is associated with the presence, severity and extent of atherosclerotic coronary artery disease (CAD) in addition to subclinical atherosclerosis. We investigated if EAT thickness ...
Arterial stiffness and central arterial wave reflection are associated with serum uric acid, total bilirubin, and neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio in patients with coronary artery disease
Objective: Total bilirubin (TB) was recently recognized as an endogenous anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant molecule. Uric acid (UA) takes part in cardiovascular diseases by inducing oxidative stress, inflammation, and ...
The relationship between serum uric acid levels and angiographic severity of coronary heart disease
(Via Medica, 2015)
Background: Many studies have shown that the serum uric acid (SUA) level is associated with atherosclerosis. Aim: To determine the relationship between the SUA level and the presence and severity of coronary heart disease ...
Tp-e/QT ratio and QT dispersion with respect to blood pressure dipping pattern in prehypertension
(Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2015)
Introduction Tp-e/QT, the ratio of the interval between the peak and the end of T wave to the QT interval, is a novel index of arrhythmogenesis. We investigate Tp-e/QT and QT dispersion (QTd) in prehypertensive and ...
Epicardial adipose tissue thickness is an independent predictor of critical and complex coronary artery disease by gensini and SYNTAX scores
(Texas Heart Institute, 2016)
Epicardial adipose tissue thickness is associated with the severity and extent of atherosclerotic coronary artery disease. We prospectively investigated whether epicardial adipose tissue thickness is related to coronary ...
Do pre-procedural laboratory parameters predict drug-eluting stent restenosis?
(Turkish Soc Cardiology, 2015)
Objective: Drug-eluting stents (DES) have considerably reduced the rates of in-stent restenosis (ISR). Several studies reported pre-procedural C-reactive protein (CRP), neutrophil to lymphocyte (N/L) ratio, red cell ...

Cardiac and respiratory changes in the medium term after lung resection
Objectives: The aim of this study was to assess the cardiac and respiratory functions at the 6th postoperative month, in lung cancer patients undergoing segmentectomy/lobectomy or pneumonectomy. Methods: Thirteen ...
