Relationship of fragmented QRS complexes with inadequate coronary collaterals in patients with chronic total occlusion
BACKGROUND: Fragmented QRS (fQRS) complexes are defined as various RSR? patterns (?1 R? or notching of S wave or R wave) in two contiguous leads corresponding to a major coronary artery territory. In previous studies, fQRS ...
Increased pulse wave velocity in patients with panic disorder: Independent vascular influence of panic disorder on arterial stiffness
Objective: Acute and chronic mental stress and many psychiatric disorders have been accepted as a cause of cardiovascular disease. Panic disorder, a subtype of anxiety disorder, has been associated with increased risk of ...
A rare combination: Single coronary artery originating from the left sinus of valsalva coexisting with perimembranous ventricular septal defect
Single coronary artery (SCA) is a rare congenital anomaly in which the entire coronary system arises from a solitary ostium. Although an uncommon congenital anomaly, SCA is encountered more frequently in the presence of ...
The independent relationship of epicardial adipose tissue with carotid intima-media thickness and endothelial functions: The association of pulse wave velocity with the active facilitated arterial conduction concept
BACKGROUND: Hypertension, identifiable by elevated blood pressure (BP), is a heterogeneous multifactorial disorder. Epicardial adipose tissue (EAT), a special fat depot that is related to visceral fat rather than total ...
The independent relationship between systemic inflammation and fragmented QRS complexes in patients with stable angina pectoris
(Via Medica, 2012)
Background: QRS complex fragmentations can frequently be seen on routine ECG with narrow or wide QRS complex. Fragmented QRS complexes (fQRS) are defined as various RSR' patterns (? 1 R' or notching of S wave or R wave) ...

Increased epicardial adipose tissue thickness is correlated with ascending aortic diameter
Epicardial adipose tissue (EAT), localized beneath the visceral pericardium, is a metabolically active endocrine and paracrine organ with possible interactions within the heart. Recent studies identified possible roles of ...

Increased carotid and brachial intima-media thickness is related to diffuse coronary involvement rather than focal lesions
We evaluated whether an increased carotid intima-media thickness (cIMT) and brachial artery IMT (bIMT) are related to diffuse coronary involvement rather than focal lesions. Patients (n = 88) with at least 1 significant ...
Relationship between leukocyte and subtype counts, low-grade inflammation and slow coronary flow phenomenon in patients with angiographically normal coronary arteries
Background: Slow coronary flow (SCF) is an angiographic finding characterized by delayed opacification of epicardial coronary arteries in the absence of obstructive coronary disease. Leukocytes and low-grade inflammation ...
