Risk factors associated with the incidence and progression of mitral annulus calcification: The multi-ethnic study of atherosclerosis.
Significant cardiovascular morbidity has been associated with mitral annulus calcification (MAC), but limited data exist regarding its progression. The purpose of this study was to examine the natural history of and risk factors for MAC progression. The MESA is a longitudinal cohort study of partici...
Rationale, design, and baseline characteristics of the Study assessInG the morbidity-mortality beNefits of the If inhibitor ivabradine in pa...
Elevated heart rate in stable coronary artery disease (CAD) is associated with worse outcomes, particularly increased risk of myocardial infarction. Heart rate reduction with the If inhibitor ivabradine confers symptomatic benefits in angina pectoris and reduces coronary events in patients with stab...
A combined anatomic and electrophysiologic substrate based approach for sudden cardiac death risk stratification.
We assessed whether a multi-marker strategy would provide more robust SCD risk stratification than LVEF alone. We collected patient-level data (n = 3355) from 6 studies assessing the prognostic utility of microvolt T-wave alternans (MTWA) testing. Two thirds of the group was used for derivation (n =...
Regional systems of care for ST-elevation myocardial infarction: do they save lives?
African American race but not genome-wide ancestry is negatively associated with atrial fibrillation among postmenopausal women in the Women...
Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common arrhythmia in women and is associated with higher rates of stroke and death. Rates of AF are lower in African American subjects compared with European Americans, suggesting European ancestry could contribute to AF risk. The Women's Health Initiative (WHI)...
Rationale and design of the COlchicine for Prevention of the Post-pericardiotomy Syndrome and Post-operative Atrial Fibrillation (COPPS-2 tr...
The efficacy and safety of colchicine for the primary prevention of the postpericardiotomy syndrome (PPS), postoperative effusions, and postoperative atrial fibrillation (POAF) remain uncertain. Although preliminary data from a single trial of colchicine given for 1 month postoperatively (COPPS tria...
Relation between the vasodilator-stimulated phosphoprotein phosphorylation assay and light transmittance aggregometry in East Asian patients...
We analyzed the relation between platelet aggregation measured by light transmittance aggregometry (LTA) and platelet reactivity index (PRI) measured by vasodilator-stimulated phosphoprotein phosphorylation (VASP-P) assay. It has been suggested that LTA and VASP-P assay correlate differently accordi...
Reciprocal relations between physical disability, subjective health, and atrial fibrillation: The Framingham Heart Study.
We sought to understand whether AF predisposes to or is a result of physical disability and poor subjective health in the community. We studied relations between physical disability (Rosow-Breslau Functional Health Scale), subjective health (self-report) and incident AF, and the converse, in the Fra...
Gender differences in clinical outcomes among diabetic patients hospitalized for cardiovascular disease.
We aimed to determine if hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) was associated with 30-day and 1-year CVD rehospitalization and total mortality among diabetic patients hospitalized for CVD, overall and by gender. This was a prospective analysis of diabetic patients hospitalized for CVD, enrolled in an National Hear...
Sensitive troponin assays and N-terminal pro-B-type natriuretic peptide in acute coronary syndrome: Prediction of significant coronary lesio...
Sensitive troponin assays have substantially improved early diagnosis of myocardial infarction. However, the role of sensitive cardiac troponin (cTn) assays in prediction of significant coronary lesions and long-term prognosis in non-ST-elevation acute coronary syndrome (NSTE-ACS) remains unresolved...
