Current Practice In Identifying And Treating Cardiovascular Risk, With A Focus On Residual Risk Associated With Atherogenic Dyslipidaemia
(Oxford Univ Press, 2016)
A panel of European experts on lipids and cardiovascular disease discussed clinical approaches to managing cardiovascular risk in clinical practice, including residual cardiovascular risk associated with lipid abnormalities, ...
Assessment of the Relationship Between Non-Dipping Phenomenon and Heart Rate Turbulence
(Via Medica, 2012)
Background: The aim of this cross-sectional study was to evaluate cardiac autonornic function by heart rate turbulence (HRT) indices in normotensive and hypertensive individuals with either non-dipper or dipper type circadian ...
Atherosclerotic Vascular Disease and Risk Factors in Turkey: From Past To Present
(Japan Atherosclerosis Soc, 2008)
The prevalance of atherosclerotic vascular disease is unexpectedly high in Turkey despite its young population, with a median age of 29. The mean total cholesterol is lower than in Western European countries; however, ...
Baseline Aortic Pre-Ejection Interval Predicts Reverse Remodeling and Clinical Improvement After Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy
(Via Medica, 2011)
Background: Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) has been shown to reduce heart failure-related morbidity and mortality. However, approximately one in three patients do not respond to CRT. The aim of the current study ...
Atrial Myocardial Deformation Properties Are Temporarily Reduced After Cardioversion For Atrial Fibrillation And Correlate Well With Left Atrial Appendage Function
(Oxford Univ Press, 2008)
Aim This study was conducted to evaluate whether left atrial strain and strain rate correlate well with transesophageal parameters of stunning after atrial fibrillation. Methods and results Twenty-two consecutive patients ...
Increased Myocardial Vulnerability And Autonomic Nervous System Imbalance In Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome
(W B Saunders Co Ltd, 2007)
Background: Obstructive steep apnea syndrome (OSAS) is characterized by the repeated episodes of upper airway obstruction during steep, leading to significant hypoxia. Noninvasive evaluation of autonomic nervous system ...
Prolonged Tp-E Interval and Tp-E/Qt Correlates Well with Modified Rodnan Skin Severity Score in Patients with Systemic Sclerosis
(Via Medica, 2016)
Background: Ventricular arrhythmias can be seen in systemic sclerosis (SSc) patients and are thought to be a result of fibrosis or ischemia of the ventricular myocardium. Tp-e interval and Tp-e/QT ratio are electrocardiographic ...
Prevalence of Potential Familial Hypercholesteremia (Fh) in 54,811 Statin-Treated Patients in Clinical Practice

Background and aims: Familial hypercholesterolemia (FH) is a life-threatening disease, characterized by elevated LDL-C levels and a premature, increased risk of coronary heart disease (CHD) that is globally underdiagnosed. ...
Statin-Associated Muscle Symptoms: Impact On Statin Therapy-European Atherosclerosis Society Consensus Panel Statement On Assessment, Aetiology And Management
(Oxford Univ Press, 2015)
Statin-associated muscle symptoms (SAMS) are one of the principal reasons for statin non-adherence and/or discontinuation, contributing to adverse cardiovascular outcomes. This European Atherosclerosis Society (EAS) Consensus ...
