Long-term follow-up of iatrogenic atrial septal defect: After percutaneous mitral balloon valvuloplasty
During percutaneous mitral balloon valvuloplasty, the Inoue method leaves patients with an iatrogenic atrial septal defect. In this study, we evaluated the factors affecting the development of iatrogenic atrial septal ...
Very early management of acute heart failure syndromes
Diagnosis and management of acute heart failure syndromes are described in the most recent ESC/ESICM guidelines. However, physicians dealing with these patients in their daily practice may need guidance in choosing therapeutic ...

The product of eGFR and hemoglobin may help predict mortality in systolic heart failure patients without severe anemia and renal failure
Objectives: Cardiorenal anemia syndrome is defined in patients with heart failure (HF). Although individual influences of renal impairment and anemia were shown previously, complex interaction between the kidney, bone ...
Coronary flow reserve and fractional flow reserve [Koroner akim ve fraksiyonel akim rezervi]
Coronary flow reserve (CFR) and fractional flow reserve (FFR) are two methods used to provide information for functional significance of coronary artery stenosis. Despite having some limitations, both parameters not only ...
Spontaneous massive intraperitoneal hematoma accompanied by acute severe anemia after low-dose thrombolytic therapy
Hemorrhagic complications may occur after thrombolytic therapy. An 80-year-old woman was admitted with acute anteroseptal myocardial infarction (MI) at three hours of onset. Half-dose streptokinase (750,000 U) along with ...
Practical approach to acute heart failure with algorithms [Akut kalp yetersizli?ine algoritmalarla pratik yaklaşim]
Acute heart failure syndrome is a heterogeneous group, which requires distinct therapeutic approaches. Diuretics and/or vasodilators for patients with high blood pressure and inotropic agents for patients with low left ...
Association between metabolic syndrome and late saphenous vein graft disease [Metabolik sendromun geç dönemdeki safen greft hastali?i ile ilişkisi]
Objectives: Saphenous vein grafts have been widely used in coronary bypass operations for many years. We investigated the association between metabolic syndrome (MS) and late saphenous graft disease. Study design: The study ...
The left anterior descending artery arising from the right sinus of Valsalva: A case report
Coronary artery anomalies occur in less than 1% of patients who undergo coronary angiography and they account for 1% to 2% of all cases of congenital heart disease. The most commonly encountered anomaly, the circumflex ...
Improvement in Doppler alternans in patients with severe heart failure: Levosimendan versus dobutamin
Mechanical alternans, an ominous sign of terminal systolic heart failure, could be indirectly shown by Doppler analysis. On the other hand, Levosimendan, a novel agent, improves contractility in patients with HF. We searched ...
