Increased epicardial fat tissue thickness predicts advanced interatrial block among hypertensive patients
(Churchill Livingstone Inc Medical Publishers, 2020)
Background: Recent studies demonstrated that epicardial fat tissue (EFT) was associated with prevalent AF and recurrences following the catheter ablation. We evaluated the value of EFT for the prediction of advanced ...
Preoperative blood urea nitrogen-to-left ventricular ejection fraction ratio is an independent predictor of long-term major adverse cardiac events in patients undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting surgery
(Digital Commons Bepress, 2020)
Background: Long-term mortality rate following coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) procedure is still considered to be high despite advances in surgical techniques and perioperative management. Identifying high-risk ...
Epicardial adipose tissue predicted prolonged QTc interval in patients with arterial hypertension
(Taylor & Francis Inc, 2020)
Introduction: It is important to identify those at higher risk for ventricular arrhythmia among hypertensive patients. Epicardial adipose tissue (EAT) leads to electromechanical changes in the heart by endocrine and paracrine ...
