This study was designed to validate the "San Francisco Syncope Rule". This set of rules was derived by Quinn et. al. to help guide the treatment of patients evaluated in the Emergency Dep...

Prevention of Syncope Trial 6 - Atomoxetine in Vasovagal Syncope

Objective: To determine if atomoxetine 40 mg bid in patients ≥18 years old with recurrent vasovagal syncope will better prevent syncope during tilt testing than placebo.

Syncope: Clinical Study and Outcome of Diagnostic Evaluation.

Syncope is a common clinical presentation in emergency department. The diagnostic workup for syncope causes significant man-hour loss and expensive investigations. Most often the battery of investigat...

Atrial fibrillation in elderly patients with implantable loop recorders for unexplained syncope.

An implantable loop recorder (ILR) assists in the diagnosis of unexplained syncope and atrial fibrillation (AF). Both become prevalent with age. Limited data exist describing the incidence of AF as th...

Risk of post-discharge fall-related injuries among adult patients with syncope: A nationwide cohort study.

Syncope could be related to high risk of falls and injury in adults, but documentation is sparse. We examined the association between syncope and subsequent fall-related injuries in a nationwide cohor...

Cardiac troponins in chronic kidney disease patients with special emphasis on their importance in acute coronary syndrome.

Troponin measurement is one of crucial assessments facilitating diagnosis of acute coronary syndrome. Patients with chronic kidney disease are decimated by cardiovascular disease. Unfortunately, eleva...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

One of the three polypeptide chains that make up the TROPONIN complex. It is a cardiac-specific protein that binds to TROPOMYOSIN. It is released from damaged or injured heart muscle cells (MYOCYTES, CARDIAC). Defects in the gene encoding troponin T result in FAMILIAL HYPERTROPHIC CARDIOMYOPATHY.

One of the three polypeptide chains that make up the TROPONIN complex. It inhibits F-actin-myosin interactions.

One of the three polypeptide chains that make up the TROPONIN complex of skeletal muscle. It is a calcium-binding protein.

One of the minor protein components of skeletal muscle. Its function is to serve as the calcium-binding component in the troponin-tropomyosin B-actin-myosin complex by conferring calcium sensitivity to the cross-linked actin and myosin filaments.

A transient loss of consciousness and postural tone caused by diminished blood flow to the brain (i.e., BRAIN ISCHEMIA). Presyncope refers to the sensation of lightheadedness and loss of strength that precedes a syncopal event or accompanies an incomplete syncope. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp367-9)
