Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) is an ongoing pandemic caused by Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). Patients with infective endocarditis (IE) and COVID-19 can present similar signs and symptoms; thus, it may be difficult for clinicians to diagnose such infections. This report presented a patient diagnosed with IE and...

Background: Behçet’s disease is a systemic vasculitis that can affect all sizes of arteries and veins. Arterial stiffness is a term used to describe the visco-elastic properties of vessel wall. In this study, we aimed to evaluate the relationship between pulmonary artery stiffness (PAS) and the right ventricular (RV) functions in asymptomatic Behçe...

The Swiss Ablation Registry provides a national database for electrophysiologic studies and catheter ablations. We analyzed the database to provide an in-depth look at changing trends over the last 20 years. During the study period a total of 78622 catheter ablations (age 61.0 ± 1.2 years; 63.7% male) were performed in 29 centers. The number of abl...

Background This study examined the possible association between the prognostic nutritional index (PNI) and in-hospital mortality rates in cases with a high cardiovascular risk burden and hospitalized with the diagnosis of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). Material and Methods This retrospective and cross-sectional study included 294 COVID-19 pa...

Objective: The present study was undertaken to investigate the prognostic value of the frontal planar QRS-T angle in patients without angiographically apparent coronary atherosclerosis. Subjects and methods: Three hundred and seven patients with normal coronary arteries on coronary angiography were included. The absolute difference between the f...

Torsade de pointes is an uncommon and malignant form of polymorphic ventricular tachycardia and associated with a prolonged QT interval, which may be congenital or acquired. Complete atrioventricular block may cause QT interval prolongation and torsade de pointes. In this paper, we present a case with complete atrioventricular block complicated wit...
Article
Aim: To present our center's experience of AVNRT ablation with two-catheter ablation technique. Methods and Results: 276 patients with the diagnosis of typical AVNRT were finally included into the study. Slow pathway ablation was performed with twocatheter ablation technique. Successfull ablation was obtained in 275 patients (99.6%). The procedure...

Objective: We aimed to examine the relationship between serum uric acid levels and left atrial appendage (LAA) peak flow velocity, an indicator of the mechanical functions of the LAA, and atrial fibrillation (AF). Subjects and methods: Transesophageal echocardiography was performed before cardioversion in 153 patients with AF. The patients were...

The golden ratio is described, as 'the small is to large as the large is to whole'. It is an irrational, continuous and non-repeating number and goes on forever. It has been found all throughout life and the physical cosmos. We hypothesized that there may be a golden ratio in the structure of the healthy heart. Healthy male individuals without any...

Background: Neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) has been found to be a good predictor of future adverse cardiovascular outcomes in patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). Changes in the QRS terminal portion have also been associated with adverse outcomes following STEMI. Objective: To investigate the relationship between...
Article
Objective There is an increasing interest for the value of right ventricle (RV) in predicting exercise tolerance and prognosis in cardiovascular disease. However, there is relatively few data evaluating the effect of age on RV diastolic filling velocities during rest or exercise in healthy subjects.MethodsA total of 54 healthy subjects were enrolle...

Objective: We aimed to evaluate the relationship between estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) and QT dispersion (QTd) in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD). Methods: Sixty patients(mean age 62.72 ± 12.48 years) included 46 male, (mean age 60.89 ± 12.70 years)and 14 female (mean age 68.71± 9.86 years) were enrolled in this study. Pa...

Vasovagal syncope (VVS) is supposed to be modulated by increased sympathetic tone following an orthostatic maneuver. Increased sympathetic activity may have an important role in mean platelet volume (MPV), either by peripheral activation or by effects on thrombocytopoiesis. We aimed to show the effects of increased sympathetic activity on platelet...
Article
Red cell distribution width (RDW) is associated with poor cardiovascular outcomes. We aimed to find out if this association could be explained by impaired exercise capacity in patients without obstructive coronary artery disease (CAD). The patients who underwent exercise treadmill test (ETT) who have non-obstructive CAD and were free of heart failu...
Article
Paravalvular leak is a common postoperative complication of cardiac valve replacement, leading to a significant morbidity. Leak closure surgery is usually performed in symptomatic patients. Since most patients with paravalvular leak have a high risk profile for surgical closure, percutaneous closure is the preferred treatment modality. However, com...
Article
Although the vascular complications of bicuspid aortic valve (BAV) disease cause significant morbidity and mortality, the role of pulmonary artery in this pathogenesis is less understood. We aimed to assess the elastic properties of pulmonary artery with echocardiography in patients with BAV. Thirty patients with BAV (26 males) were enrolled in thi...

Revascularization treatment is mostly recommended for iatrogenic left main coronary artery dissection because of potential for catastrophic sequel, even in case of initial TIMI 3 flow and hemodynamic stability. However, conservative treatment seems to be feasible in asymptomatic and hemodinamically stable patient with low-grade dissection. We repor...
