Gemcitabine is a chemotherapy drug. It is a nucleoside analogue that is usually well tolerated by patients, with myelosuppression (especially thrombocytopenia) as dose-limiting side effect. Other mild to moderate side effects include alopecia, vomiting, nausea, rash, and fever. Coronary ischemia is the most common cardiotoxic effect of gemcitabine,...
Article
Severe aortoiliac disease is traditionally treated with aortofemoral bypass (AFB). However, certain recurrent problems typically follow this type of treatment, problems which often require surgical intervention. Presently described is the endovascular recanalization of the native aortoiliac arteries in 2 patients who had undergone AFB. One patient...
Article
Background: Contrast-induced nephropathy (CIN) remains a common complication of radiographic procedures. Radiocontrast agents can cause a reduction in renal function that may be due to reactive oxygen species. Conflicting evidence suggests that administration of antioxidants prevents CIN. Methods: We assessed the efficacy of allopurinol in preve...

Although cysticercosis is the most common parasitic disease affecting the central nervous system, spinal cysticercosis is rare. A rare form of spinal cysticercosis involving the whole spinal canal is presented. A 45-year-old Korean male had a history of intracranial cysticercosis and showed progressive paraparesis. Spinal magnetic resonance scan sh...
Article
Experimental data demonstrated that inflammatory mediators, such as pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory cytokines and their receptors might have important role in the development and the progression of heart failure (HF). Statins were shown to downregulate inflammatory cytokines in HF. Interleukin (IL)-10 is one of the most important anti-inflam...
Article
Thrombocytopenia determined by an automated counter may represent a benign, incidental finding in an asymptomatic patient or a potentially life-threatening disorder. Even if the low platelet count actually is a benign condition itself, in some conditions, any delay resulting from this condition consequently may be seriously hazardous. Low platelet...
Article
Paroxysmal atrial fibrillation might be a risk factor for stroke such as chronic atrial fibrillation. We examined the relation between mean platelet volume and paroxysmal atrial fibrillation to determine the effect of paroxysmal atrial fibrillation on the thrombotic state via elevated mean platelet volume. Mean platelet volume is a marker of platel...
Article
Purpose: Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is frequently accompanied by the presence of cardiovascular risk factors. It has also been recognized that there is a significant relationship between the autonomic nervous system and adverse cardiac events. Heart rate recovery (HRR) after exercise is a marker of parasympathetic activity and attenuation of...
Article
This study investigated the value of exercise-induced ST-segment elevation in lead aVR with or without concomitant ST-segment elevation in lead V(1) for detection of left main (LM) coronary artery disease in patients with Duke treadmill score <or=-11. One hundred and four patients with Duke treadmill score <or=-11 were retrospectively screened for...

Early mortality after coronary artery bypass grafting is generally higher in women than in men. This study analyzes the effect of female gender on early mortality of coronary artery bypass grafting particularly for left main coronary artery disease. Study population consisted of 144 consecutive patients (33 women, 111 men) undergoing coronary arter...
Article
P-wave duration is defined as the time measured from the onset to the offset of the P-wave in surface electrocardiogram (ECG). Prolonged P wave duration and increased P wave dispersion (PWD) have been reported to carry an increased risk for atrial fibrillation. Our aim was to evaluate the role of hyperthyroidism on P wave duration and dispersion, t...
Article
Impaired heart rate recovery (HRR) is a powerful predictor of overall mortality. The aim of the present study is to assess HRR in young adult males with metabolic syndrome and to compare HRR with those of obese patients who do not meet the criteria for metabolic syndrome. Sixty-four newly diagnosed and untreated young male subjects (24 +/- 3 years)...
Article
Heart rate recovery at 1min (HRR1) is a strong predictor of all-cause mortality. The effects of statins on the autonomic nervous system may account for their beneficial effects in survival. Our aim was to determine if statin therapy improves heart rate recovery in hypercholesterolemic patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus. Thirty type 2 diabetic p...
Article
The radial approach has been increasingly used as an alternative to femoral access. The purpose of the present study was to assess the feasibility, success, and safety of the transradial approach (TRA) for diagnostic coronary angiography, and to describe the difficulties associated with the technique as compared with transfemoral approach (TRF). A...
Article
Sinus valsalva aneurysm is a rare condition. Most aneurysms usually originate from the right or non-coronary sinus. A few series were reported about the sinus valsalva aneurysm describing its origin, diagnostic tools and prognosis. We describe a case of a sinus valsalva aneurysm originating from the left coronary sinus that ruptured into the right...
Article
In this study, we found that carotid intima-media thickness (IMT) was significantly increased and carotid artery atherosclerotic plaques were detected more frequently in patients who had early-onset coronary artery disease compared with control subjects (0.73 +/- 0.10 vs 0.60 +/- 0.10 mm, p <0.001, and 40% vs 11%, p <0.001, respectively). Further,...
Article
Heart rate recovery is the difference in heart rate at peak exercise and at a specific time interval following the onset of recovery. Attenuated heart rate recovery is an independent predictor of mortality in patients with a history of coronary artery disease. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the effect of a statin on heart rate recover...
