Clinical implications of endoscopic ultrasonography non-traversability in patients with locoregional esophageal cancer receiving multimodality therapy
1. Endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS) non-traversability has negative prognostic implications in advanced locoregional esophageal cancer (EC) patients receiving preoperative chemoradiotherapy (CRT) and esophagectomy.
2. The negative prognostic implications may be ascribed to more advanced clinical stage, a larger tumor burden, and limitation of accurate EUS tumor staging.
3. The survival of non-traversable EC patients was favorable when they achieved preoperative CRT response and also finished the planned esophagectomy.
Association between left ventricular function and paraprotein type in patients with multiple myeloma
1. An increase in serum monoclonal (M) protein was associated with left ventricular (LV) diastolic dysfunction, and an increase in serum free light chain-λ showed an inverse relationship with LV systolic function among patients with multiple myeloma (MM).
2. Serum M protein has different effects on LV function according to the type of paraprotein in patients with MM.
Fragmented QRS and abnormal creatine kinase-MB are predictors of coronary artery disease in patients with angina and normal electrocardiographys
1. Fragmented QRS (fQRS) related with scar or left ventricular dysfunction was observed in patients with structural heart disease as well as with normal hearts.
2. A fQRS was shown in 10% to 16% patients who had been analyzed as having normal sinus rhythm and certified coronary artery lesions by coronary angiography (CAG).
3. Patients with coronary artery disease were more apt to be male (86.7% vs. 68%, p = 0.023) with notching of the QRS complex (fQRS) on electrocardiography (38.6% vs. 21.6%, p = 0.042) compared with patients who showed normal CAG.
