Deaf athlete: Is there any difference beyond the hearing loss?
Regular physical activity and sport is important for enhanced physical fitness and skill performance of deaf athletes. However there are few data in the literature about their medical considerations. In this study we ...
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 ...
Assesment of epicardial FAT thickness in subclinical hypothyroidism
[No Abstract Available]
Blood pressure morning surge, exercise blood pressure response and autonomic nervous system
OBJECTIVE: We investigated blood pressure (BP) response to exercise with respect to BP morning surge (MS), and the association between MS, exercise treadmill test (ETT) and heart rate variability (HRV) indices. DESIG ...
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 ...
Electrocardiographic P-wave duration, QT interval, T peak to end interval and Tp-e/QT ratio in pregnancy with respect to trimesters
Background: P-wave duration helps to determine the risk of atrial arrhythmia, especially atrial fibrillation. QT interval, T peak to end interval (Tp-e), and Tp-e/QT ratio are electrocardiographic indices related to ...
