Many heart failure patients are unable to reach target beta blocker doses. This study will address whether cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) will enable uptitration of beta-blockers ...
Limited data are available on the efficacy of beta-blocker therapy for secondary prevention in Actue Coronary Syndrome(ACS) patients. This study sought to investigate the association of be...
Remote ischemic conditioning has been shown to protect myocardium from ischemia-reperfusion injury during cardiac intervention or cardiac surgery. However, effect of beta-blocker, commonly...
This protocol will evaluate the effect of cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) combined with beta-blocker therapy in patients with symptomatic heart failure in whom beta-blocker therapy...
Treatments for stable angina includes drug therapy such as calcium-channel blocker, beta blocker, and ACEI/ARB. To obtain good prognosis in patients with coronary artery disease,preventing...
Absence of beta-blocker use independently predicts appropriate therapy. Following cardiac resynchronisation therapy (CRT) implant, reverse remodelling and protection against bradycardia allows for bet...
Beta-blockers are one of the most commonly prescribed classes of antihypertensive medications during pregnancy. Previous studies reported an association between beta-blocker exposure and intrauterine ...
Allergic, IgE-mediated inflammation is thought to play a role in atherogenesis and atherosclerotic disease progression. In this study, total IgE and mast cell tryptase were measured in a series of for...
The development of serum markers specific for coronary lesions is important to prevent coronary events. However, analyses of serum markers in humans are affected by environmental factors and non-targe...
Correlation between coronary atherosclerosis calcification and epicardial adipose tissue (EAT) volume in patients with nephropathy was investigated. A total of 529 patients with high risk of coronary ...
Abnormal balloon- or sac-like dilatation in the wall of CORONARY VESSELS. Most coronary aneurysms are due to CORONARY ATHEROSCLEROSIS, and the rest are due to inflammatory diseases, such as KAWASAKI DISEASE.
Complete blockage of blood flow through one of the CORONARY ARTERIES, usually from CORONARY ATHEROSCLEROSIS.
A disorder of cardiac function secondary to hypersensitivity reactions. It is characterized by coexistence of acute coronary syndromes and cardiac MAST CELL and PLATELET ACTIVATION. It may be induced by exposure to drugs (e.g., antibiotics, anesthetics, contrast media), food, and environmental triggers (e.g., insect bites and stings, poison ivy).
Diabetes complications in which VENTRICULAR REMODELING in the absence of CORONARY ATHEROSCLEROSIS and hypertension results in cardiac dysfunctions, typically LEFT VENTRICULAR DYSFUNCTION. The changes also result in myocardial hypertrophy, myocardial necrosis and fibrosis, and collagen deposition due to impaired glucose tolerance.
A disorder of cardiac function caused by insufficient blood flow to the muscle tissue of the heart. The decreased blood flow may be due to narrowing of the coronary arteries (CORONARY ARTERY DISEASE), to obstruction by a thrombus (CORONARY THROMBOSIS), or less commonly, to diffuse narrowing of arterioles and other small vessels within the heart. Severe interruption of the blood supply to the myocardial tissue may result in necrosis of cardiac muscle (MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION).
