Systolic aortic regurgitation predicts all-cause mortality and hospitalization in outpatients with heart failure and preserved ejection fraction
(Kare Publ, 2020)
OBJECTIVE: Systolic aortic regurgitation (SAR) is considered to be a specific sign of heart failure (HF). However, the prevalence and importance of SAR in patients with HF and preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF) are unknown. ...
A small pericardial effusion is a marker of complicated hospitalization in patients with community-acquired pneumonia
(W B Saunders Co-Elsevier Inc, 2018)
Objective: Although often asymptomatic, presence of small pericardial effusion (SPE) is shown to be associated with adverse events and increased mortality in various conditions. This study aimed to evaluate the frequency ...
The Role of Left Atrial Volume Index in Patients with a First-ever Acute Ischemic Stroke
Background: Although an enlarged left atrium has recently emerged as a marker of adverse outcomes in various diseases, its discriminatory value and prognostic role in acute ischemic stroke (AIS) are not well studied. We ...
