Association of the European Society of Cardiology echocardiographic probability grading for pulmonary hypertension with short and mid-term clinical outcomes after heart valve surgery.
CONCLUSION: The high PH probability as evaluated by the ESC PH echocardiographic probability model, is associated with increased short- and mid-term mortality and morbidity and reduced right ventricular systolic function after cardiac surgery, Thus, additional echocardiographic parameters assessing PH probability are valuable tools to stratify risk in patients undergoing cardiac surgery.

This study (NCT03381742) retrospectively analyzed the data from 11 hospitals on 3,043 patients with coronary artery disease, who received C75QD, T90BID, ticagrelor 45 mg BID (T45BID), or ticagrelor 90 mg QD (T90QD). Compared with C75QD, both T45BID and T90QD showed significantly higher inhibition of platelet aggregation (P

Authors: Karaman K, Yürektürk E, Geylan H, Yaşar AŞ, Karaman S, Aymelek HS, Çetin M, Oner AF Abstract Glanzmann's thrombasthenia (GT) is an autosomal recessive disorder in which the underlying problem is the lack or dysfunction of the GpIIb/IIIa receptor on the platelet surface. The present study determines the genetic mutation typology and analyzes the association between mutation types and clinical findings in patients diagnosed with GT who were followed up in Department of Pediatric Hematology of the Yüzüncü Yıl University School of Medicine. The medical charts of 17 patients w...
Authors: Wyssmüller I, Schaal K, Wolf S, Zinkernagel M Abstract BACKGROUND: It has previously been shown that the process of anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) injections can lead to a significant increase of blood pressure. The aim of this study was to investigate whether this blood pressure increase was reproducible with repeated anti-VEGF injections. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Patients with a systolic blood pressure of ≥ 180 mmHg during previous injections who were scheduled for further injections were asked to participate in this study. Systolic as well as diastolic blood pressu...
