  1. Acute coronary syndromes in octogenarians referred for invasive evaluation: treatment profile and outcomes.

    Clinical Research in Cardiology 104(1):51 (2015) PMID 25142902

    We confirm that in-hospital death and MACE rate remain significantly elevated in octogenarians in spite of implementation of modern therapies. However, our real-world registry strongly suggests that early revascularization appears safe and effective in elderly patients. Furthermore, we have identifi...
  2. 888-6 Differential effects of selective COX-2 inhibitors on endothelial function in salt-induced hypertension

    Journal of the American College of Cardiology 43(5):A531 (2004)

  3. Vascular lesions induced by renal nerve ablation as assessed by optical coherence tomography: pre- and post-procedural comparison with the S...

    European Heart Journal 34(28):2141 (2013) PMID 23620498 PMCID PMC3717310

    We show that diffuse renal artery constriction and local tissue damage at the ablation site with oedema and thrombus formation occur after RNA and that OCT visualizes vascular lesions not apparent on angiography. This suggests that dual antiplatelet therapy may be required during RNA....
  4. Longitudinal trends in the severity of acute myocardial infarction: a population study in Olmsted County, Minnesota.

    American Journal of Epidemiology 156(3):246 (2002) PMID 12142259

    The mechanisms of the decline in coronary heart disease mortality are not fully elucidated. In particular, little is known about the trends in severity of myocardial infarction, which may have contributed to the mortality decline. This study examines indicators of myocardial infarction severity incl...
  5. Measurement of ejection fraction after myocardial infarction in the population.

    Chest 125(2):397 (2004) PMID 14769715

    To assess the secular trends in left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) assessment after myocardial infarction (MI) and to identify the determinants of testing. A population-based MI incidence cohort. The use of tests measuring LVEF (echocardiography, radionuclide, and left ventricular [LV] angiog...
  6. Simvastatin improves endothelial function in patients with rheumatoid arthritis.

    Journal of the American College of Cardiology 45(3):461 (2005) PMID 15680730

  7. Electrocardiographic artifacts due to electrode misplacement and their frequency in different clinical settings.

    The American Journal of Emergency Medicine 25(2):174 (2007) PMID 17276807

    We collected ECGs routinely performed at the cardiology outpatient clinic and the intensive care unit. Lead misplacement was suspected when one of the following morphological changes occurred: QRS axis between 180 degrees and -90 degrees , positive P wave in lead aVR, negative P waves in lead I and/...
  8. Heart failure after myocardial infarction: a review.

    The American Journal of Medicine 113(4):324 (2002) PMID 12361819

    We reviewed studies of the incidence, mortality, and predictors of heart failure after myocardial infarction, and suggest directions for further research. We conducted a review of the literature from 1978 to 2000. Of 33 identified articles, 18 (55%) included heart failure as a primary endpoint. The...
  9. Heart failure after myocardial infarction: clinical presentation and survival.

    European Journal of Heart Failure 7(1):119 (2005) PMID 15642543

    To characterize the presentation and outcome of patients with heart failure (HF) after myocardial infarction (MI) according to left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) and test the hypothesis that the outcome of HF did not change over time. Little is known about the presentation and outcome of HF p...
  10. Differential effects of selective cyclooxygenase-2 inhibitors on endothelial function in salt-induced hypertension.

    Circulation 108(19):2308 (2003) PMID 14597594

    We compared the effects of 2 different coxibs and a traditional NSAID on endothelial dysfunction, a well-established surrogate of cardiovascular disease, in salt-induced hypertension. Salt-sensitive (DS) and salt-resistant (DR) Dahl rats were fed a high-sodium diet (4% NaCl) for 56 days. From days 3...
