1. Risk of local adverse events by gender following cardiac catheterization.
Match Strength: 11.969
PURPOSE: To assess the reason for the relative high risk of local complications for women following cardiac catheterization by evaluating the associations between gender, sheath size, and local adverse outcomes following cardiac catheterization. METHODS: The data used in this study were obtained from a portion of the American College of Cardiology-National Cardiovascular Data Registrytrade mark (ACC-NCDRtrade mark), which included 13 878 patients who underwent cardiac catheterization at one of 59 participating cardiac catheterization institutions throughout the United States during late 2003. ...

2. Arterial pulse wave analysis: An accurate means of determining cardiac output in children.
Match Strength: 8.676
OBJECTIVE: Cardiac output is a useful measure of myocardial performance. Standard methods of determining cardiac output are not without risk and can be problematic in children. Arterial pulse wave analysis (PulseCO), a novel, minimally invasive cardiac output determination technique, offers the advantage of continuous monitoring, convenience, and low risk. This technique has not been validated in children. The purpose of this study was to validate PulseCO as an accurate means of noninvasively determining real-time cardiac output in children. DESIGN: Prospective, single-center evaluation. ... Read More »

3. Abnormal vascular tone in infants and children with lung hypoplasia: Findings from cardiac catheterization and the response to chronic therapy.
Match Strength: 8.420
OBJECTIVE: We describe four cases of chronic pulmonary hypertension in infants and children with chronic lung disease and pulmonary hypoplasia due to severe congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) or congenital cystic adenomatoid malformation (CCAM). We report data from cardiac catheterization under various conditions: baseline respiratory support and room air, hyperoxic and inhaled nitric oxide challenge. We further report cardiac catheterization measures after chronic pulmonary vasodilator therapy with sildenafil alone or a combination of sildenafil and inhaled nitric oxide (three patients). ...

4. The diagnostic accuracy of 64-slice computed tomography coronary angiography compared with stress nuclear imaging in emergency department low-risk chest pain patients.
Match Strength: 7.277
STUDY OBJECTIVE: We compared the accuracy of multidetector computed tomography (CT) coronary angiography with stress nuclear imaging for the detection of an acute coronary syndrome or 30-day major adverse cardiac events in low-risk chest pain patients. METHODS: This was a prospective study of the diagnostic accuracy of myocardial perfusion imaging and multidetector CT in low-risk chest pain patients. The target condition was an acute coronary syndrome (confirmed >70% coronary stenosis on coronary artery catheterization) or major adverse cardiac events within 30 days. Patients were low risk ...

5. Attenuation of the negative inotropic effects of metoprolol at short cycle lengths in humans: comparison with sotalol and verapamil.
Match Strength: 3.716
OBJECTIVES: This study sought to compare the influence of changes in systolic interval on the negative inotropic effects of metoprolol, sotalol, and verapamil in patients with ischemic heart disease. BACKGROUND: The long-term symptomatic and prognostic effects of antiarrhythmic agents are not easily predicted on the basis of acute hemodynamic actions at rest, but may be unmasked during tachycardia. However, this has not been studied extensively in vivo. METHODS: The force-interval relationship of the intact human left ventricle was examined before and 10 min after intravenous bolus ...
