Ultrasonography (USG) diagnostic test compared to magnetic resonance cholangio pancreatografy (MRCP) in patients with obstructive jaundice in Dr. Moewardi Public Hospital

ABSTRACT Background: Ultrasonography (USG) is still the first imaging modality for initial examination in patients with obstructive jaundice. Abdominal ultrasonography is quite good in seeing the morphology of the biliary…

Procalcitonin as A Predictor of Left Ventricular Systolic Dysfunction in Sepsis Patients

Abstract Background:  Release of cytokines in sepsis can cause left heart failure and left ventricular sys¬≠tolic dysfunction (LVSD). In sepsis, there is a releasing of Procalcitonin (PCT) and tumor necrosis…

Association between Left Ventricular Global Longitudinal Strain and Functional Capacity Measured with Six-Minutes Walk Test in Patients after Acute Myocardial Infarction.

Abstract Background: The ischemia resulting from critical coronary narrowing or total occlusion first affects the subendocardialmyofibers. Thus, abnormalities in longitudinal function can be detected before reductions in LVEF and reflects…

Effect of Oral N-Acetylcysteine Supplementation on the Immunity System in Patients with Acute Myocardial Infarction

Abstract Background: inflammation, oxidative stress, and fibrosis play important roles after an acute myocardial infarction (AMI) event. The most studied inflammatory biomarker in cardiovascular disease is C-reactive protein (CRP). It has…
