Adjustment of CT-fractional flow reserve based on fluid–structure interaction underestimation to minimize 1-year cardiac events

The purpose of the study was to evaluate the optimal cut-off value of CT-Fractional Flow Reserve (CT-FFR) using fluid–structure interaction and how to adjust the CT-FFR’s underestimation from a standpoint of minimize 1-year cardiac events.

Relationship between circulating levels of angiotensin-converting enzyme 2-angiotensin-(1–7)-MAS axis and coronary heart disease

As a counter-regulatory arm of the renin angiotensin system (RAS), the angiotensin-converting enzyme 2-angiotensin-(1–7)-MAS axis (ACE2-Ang-(1–7)-MAS axis) plays a protective role in cardiovascular diseases. However, the link between circulating …

Association between left atrial reverse remodeling and maintenance of sinus rhythm after catheter ablation of persistent atrial fibrillation

The success rate of catheter ablation of persistent atrial fibrillation (AF) is not satisfactory, for reasons that are unclear. The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between left atrial reverse remodeling after ablation and …

The impact of kidney dysfunction categorized by urinary to serum creatinine ratio on clinical outcomes in patients with heart failure

Kidney dysfunction (KD) is closely associated with poor clinical outcome in patients with heart failure (HF). KD is classified as intrinsic and pre-renal KD. However, the impact of each KD on the clinical outcome in patients with HF has not yet …

Significant impact of left ventricular assist device models on the value of flow-mediated dilation: effects of LVAD on endothelial function

The precise physiological changes associated with the use of left ventricular assist device (LVAD) are not well characterized. We examined the impact of changes in hemodynamic state using LVAD on endothelial function. We measured flow-mediated …
