Impact of pericoronary adipose tissue inflammation on left ventricular hypertrophy and regional physiological indices in stable coronary artery disease patients with preserved systolic function

Systemic low-grade inflammation has been shown to be associated with left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH). However, the relationship between pericoronary adipose tissue attenuation (PCATA) and both LVH and regional physiological indices remains …

Clinical impact of admission urinary 8-hydroxydeoxyguanosine level for predicting cardiovascular mortality in patients with acute coronary syndrome

The aim of the present study was to determine whether urinary 8-hydroxydeoxyguanosine (8-OHdG), which is a marker of oxidative stress, can predict future cardiovascular death in patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS). A total of 551 …

Noninvasive assessment of intraventricular pressure difference in left ventricular dyssynchrony using vector flow mapping

Diastolic intraventricular pressure difference (IVPD) reflects left ventricular (LV) diastolic function. The relative pressure imaging (RPI) enables the noninvasive quantification of IVPD based on vector flow mapping (VFM) and visualization of …

Changes in lung to finger circulation time measured via cardiopulmonary polygraphy in patients with varying types of heart disease

Cardiopulmonary polygraphy (PG) demonstrates not only parameters for sleep disordered breathing (SDB) but also hemodynamics. We previously developed a software that detects lung to fingertip circulation time (LFCT) derived from PG dataset and …
