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 ...
Effect of Hemodynamic Changes During Percutaneous Mitral Balloon Valvuloplasty on Short and Long Term Clinical Outcome
Aims: We aim of this study is to determine whether hemodynamic changes that occur before and after percutaneous mitral balloon valvuloplasty (PMV) procedure is a predictor in determining the short- and long-term clinical ...
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 ...
Comparision of pain levels of transradial versus transfemoral coronary catheterization: a prospective and randomized study
Objective: The aim of the present study was to assess access site pain levels of patients undergoing coronary catheterization via transradial route.
The effects of Ramadan fasting on heart rate variability in healthy individuals: A prospective study
Objective: Ramadan fasting is one of the five fundamental rituals of Islam. Heart rate variability (HRV) is an independent predictor of increased mortality of patients with myocardial infarction and congestive heart failure. ...
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 the left ventricular systolic function in cardiac syndrome X using speckle tracking echocardiography
Objective: The aim of this study was to evaluate left ventricular (LV) systolic strain by speckle tracking echocardiography (STE) and real-time three-dimensional echocardiography (3-DE) for the early detection of myocardial ...
Early Left Atrial Mechanics and Volume Abnormalities in Subjects with Prehypertension: A Real Time Three-Dimensional Echocardiography Study
The aim of this study was to evaluate left atrial (LA) volume and mechanical functions by real time three-dimensional echocardiography (RT3DE) in prehypertensive subjects. The study included 54 (34 male and 20 female) ...
Uric Acid Level and Its Association with Carotid Intima-Media Thickness in Patients with Cardiac Syndrome X
Objective: The aim of our study was to evaluate serum uric acid level and its relationship with carotid intima-media thickness (CIMT) in patients with cardiac syndrome X (CSX). Subjects and Methods: A total of 50 patients ...
