Assesment of epicardial FAT thickness in subclinical hypothyroidism
[No Abstract Available]
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 ...
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 ...
Cardiac autonomic function and global left ventricular performance in autoimmune eauthyroid chronic thyroiditis: is treatment necessary at the euthyroid stage?
Objective: Autoimmune chronic thyroiditis (ACT) is characterized by lymphocyte infiltration in the thyroid gland and the presence of antithyroid antibodies in serum. Medical treatment does not affect antibody levels and ...
Factors associated with increased carotid intima-media thickness and being nondipper in nonobese and normotensive young patients affected by PCOS
(Sage Publications Inc, 2011)
Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is characterized by chronic unovulation, hyperandrogenism, and insulin resistance. We evaluated factors that affect nondipper status during 24-hour ambulatory blood pressure monitoring ...
Is mean platelet volume associated with the angiographic severity of coronary artery disease?
Background: Platelet activation and aggregation play key roles both in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis and in the developmentof acute thrombotic events. Platelet volume is a marker of platelet activation and function, ...
