Increased gamma-glutamyl transferase levels predict early mortality in patients with acute pulmonary embolism
(W B SAUNDERS CO-ELSEVIER INC, 2012)
Background: Increased gamma-glutamyl transferase (GGT) level is associated with increased oxidative stress, all-cause mortality, the development of cardiovascular disease, and metabolic syndrome. However, its role in acute ...
The relationship between D-dimer level and the development of atrial fibrillation in patients with systolic heart failure
Heart failure (HF) is one of the most common and leading cause of death worldwide. Clinical trials provide evidence that the development of atrial fibrillation (AF) is a marker of poor prognosis in patients with HF. ...
Increased d-dimer levels predict cardiovascular mortality in patients with systolic heart failure
D-dimer is a fibrin degradation product, and is implicated in pathologies of cardiovascular system. Thrombosis within the vascular system in relation with inflammation and stasis might be associated with poor prognosis in ...
Relationship between red cell distribution width and right ventricular dysfunction in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease
BACKGROUND: Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a progressively debilitating disease limiting patients' survival. The prognosis of COPD worsens with the addition of right ventricular (RV) failure. Red cell ...
Usefulness of Admission Red Cell Distribution Width as a Predictor of Early Mortality in Patients With Acute Pulmonary Embolism
(EXCERPTA MEDICA INC-ELSEVIER SCIENCE INC, 2012)
Red cell distribution width (RDW) is strongly associated with prognosis in cardiopulmonary disorders such as coronary artery disease, acute myocardial infarction, acute and chronic heart failure, and pulmonary hypertension. ...
