Assessment of Atrial Electromechanical Delay by Tissue Doppler Echocardiography in Obese Subjects
Our aim was to evaluate whether atrial electromechanical delay measured by tissue Doppler imaging (TDI), which is an early predictor of atrial fibrillation (AF) development, is prolonged in obese subjects. A total of 40 ...
The evaluation of non-ischemic dilated cardiomyopathy with T1 mapping and ECV methods using 3T cardiac MRI
The aim of this study was to examine the correlation between ventricular function and the extracellular volume fraction (ECV) in patients with non-ischemic dilated cardiomyopathy (NIDCM) using 3.0 T magnetic resonance ...
Comparison of left atrial volume and function in non-dipper versus dipper hypertensives: A real-time three-dimensional echocardiography study
Objective: Non-dipper hypertension is associated with an increased cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. Besides this, the left atrial (LA) size and functions are accepted to be prognostic factors in various cardiovascular ...
Assessment of left atrial volume and function by real time three-dimensional echocardiography in obese patients
Objective: To evaluate left atrial (LA) volume and functions in obese subjects using real time three-dimensional echocardiography (RT3DE) and also the relationship between LA mechanical functions and N-terminal pro-atrial ...
Left atrial volume and function in patients with cardiac syndrome X assessed by real time three-dimensional echocardiography
ObjectiveThe aim of this study was to evaluate left atrial (LA) volume and function using real time three-dimensional echocardiography (RT3DE) in patients with cardiac syndrome X (CSX).
Comparison of atrial electromechanical coupling interval and P-wave dispersion in non-dipper versus dipper hypertensive subjects
Background. The lack of nocturnal BP fall less than 10% of the daytime, called non-dipper hypertension, is associated with increased cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. The aim of our study was to investigate atrial ...
Elevated serum gamma-glutamyl transferase activity in patients with cardiac syndrome X and its relationship with carotid intima media thickness
Objectives - We aimed to evaluate serum gamma-glutamyl transferase (GGT) activity and its relationship with carotid intima media thickness (CIMT) in patients with cardiac syndrome X (CSX).
Left atrial volume and function in patients with white-coat hypertension assessed by real-time three-dimensional echocardiography
BackgroundWhite-coat hypertension (WCH) is a disease based on the disparity of a patient-s blood pressure measurements between the physician-s office and the patient-s home environment. The aim of the present study is to ...
Assessment of atrial conduction time by tissue Doppler echocardiography and P-wave dispersion in patients with mitral annulus calcification
The aim of our study was to investigate atrial conduction time in patients with mitral annulus calcification (MAC) using P-wave dispersion (PWD) and electromechanical coupling measured with the surface electrocardiogram ...
Left atrial volume and function in patients with Behcet-s disease assessed by real-time three-dimensional echocardiography
Aims Behcet-s disease (BD), a multisystemic inflammatory disorder, has been associated with a number of cardiovascular dysfunctions, including endomyocardial fibrosis of the right heart, atrial fibrillation, ventricular ...
