(Taylor and Francis Ltd., 2018)
Purpose: Mindin was associated with diabetic nephropathy, podocyte injury, colitis, allergic asthma, liver ischaemia and reperpusion injury and ischaemic brain injury. On the other hand, it was reported as a protective ...
Status of the epicardial coronary arteries in non-ST elevation acute coronary syndrome in patients with mechanical prosthetic heart valves (from the TROIA-ACS Trial)
(Elsevier Inc., 2018)

Presence of fragmented QRS may be associated with complex ventricular arrhythmias in patients with essential hypertension
(Churchill Livingstone Inc., 2019)
Background: Ventricular arrhythmias (VAs)are frequent in hypertensive patients. Myocardial fibrosis is one of the components of left ventricular hypertrophy secondary to hypertension. Fragmented QRS (fQRS)on electrocardiography ...
Fragmented QRS may predict new onset atrial fibrillation in patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction
(Churchill Livingstone Inc., 2018)
Background Fragmented QRS (fQRS) has been shown to be a marker of local myocardial conduction abnormalities, cardiac fibrosis in previous studies. It was also reported to be a predictor of sudden cardiac death and increased ...
