- Additive Effect of Anemia and Renal Impairment on Long-Term Outcome after Percutaneous Coronary Intervention. Pilgrim, Thomas; Rothenbühler, Martina; Kalesan, Bindu; Pulver, Cédric; Stefanini, Giulio G.; Zanchin, Thomas; Räber, Lorenz; Stortecky, Stefan; Jung, Simon; Mattle, Heinrich; Moschovitis, Aris; Wenaweser, Peter; Meier, Bernhard; Gsponer, Thomas; Windecker, Stephan; Jüni, Peter // PLoS ONE;Dec2014, Vol. 9 Issue 12, p1
Introduction: Anemia and renal impairment are important co-morbidities among patients with coronary artery disease undergoing Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI). Disease progression to eventual death can be understood as the combined effect of baseline characteristics and intermediate...
- Inequity of access to investigation and effect on clinical outcomes: prognostic study of coronary angiography for suspected stable angina pectoris. Sekhri, Neha; Timmis, Adam; Chen, Ruoling; Junghans, Cornelia; Walsh, Niamh; Zaman, Justin; Eldridge, Sandra; Hemingway, Harry; Feder, Gene // BMJ: British Medical Journal (International Edition);5/10/2008, Vol. 336 Issue 7652, p1058
Objectives To determine whether coronary angiography for suspected stable angina pectoris is underused in older patients, women, south Asian patients, and those from socioeconomically deprived areas, and, if it is, whether this is associated with higher coronary event rates. Design Multicentre...

- Effectiveness of Biofield Therapy for Individuals With Sickle Cell Disease in Africa. Tite Mikobi Minga; Fridolin Kodondi Kule Koto; Hillaire Egboki; Kiyoshi Suzuki // Alternative Therapies in Health & Medicine;Jan/Feb2014, Vol. 20 Issue 1, p20
Context * Individuals with sickle cell disease (SCD) in Africa have to manage most of their painful episodes at home, mainly due to insufficient medical services. In the past, the research team had observed that some individuals with SCD had experienced symptomatic improvement after...
- Intra-arterial or intravenous thrombolysis for acute ischemic stroke? The SYNTHESIS pilot trial. Ciccone, A.; Valvassori, L.; Ponzio, M.; Ballabio, E.; Gasparotti, R.; Sessa, M.; Scomazzoni, F.; Tiraboschi, P.; Sterzi, R. // Journal of NeuroInterventional Surgery;Mar2010, Vol. 2 Issue 1, p74
The article assesses the advantages of intra-arterial thrombolysis (IAT) over standard intravenous thrombolysis (IVT) as a treatment option for acute ischemic stroke. Findings indicate that the rapid initiation of IAT is a safe alternative to IVT. The correlation of recanaliztion with improved...
- Remote ischemic preconditioning in hemodialysis: a pilot study. Park, Jongha; Ann, Soe; Chung, Hyun; Lee, Jong; Kim, Shin-Jae; Garg, Scot; Shin, Eun-Seok // Heart & Vessels;Jan2014, Vol. 29 Issue 1, p58
Hemodialysis (HD)-induced myocardial ischemia is associated with an elevated cardiac troponin T, and is common in asymptomatic patients undergoing conventional HD. Remote ischemic preconditioning (RIPC) has a protective effect against myocardial ischemia-reperfusion injury. We hypothesized that...
