We aimed to train podiatrists to perform a focused duplex ultrasound scan (DUS) of the tibial vessels at the ankle in diabetic patients; podiatry ankle (PodAnk) duplex scan. Thirteen podiatrists underwent an intensive 3-hour long simulation training session. Participants were then assessed performing bilateral PodAnk duplex scans of 3 diabetic patients with peripheral arterial disease. Participants were assessed using the duplex ultrasound objective structured assessment of technical skills (DUOSATS) tool and an "Imaging Score"...

Few reports have analyzed the effect of pentraxin 3 (PTX3) on platelets and their activation. We explored the association between plasma PTX3 and platelet indices. Forty-nine patients with stable coronary artery disease (CAD) were enrolled. Based on median PTX3, the study population was divided into group 1 (n = 25; PTX3 ≤ 0.98 ng/mL) and group 2 (n = 24; PTX3 > 0.98 ng/mL). Platelet indices investigated included mean platelet volume (MPV), platelet distribution width (PDW), platelets and large cell ratio (P-LCR), MPV to platelet count ratio (MPV/PC), platelet to lymphocyte ratio (PLR), and MPV to lymphocyte ratio (MPVLR)...

Takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TC) is a life-threatening syndrome with ambiguous pathophysiology. The interdependency between heart failure and kidney failure (KF) is well established, but the influence of KF on TC outcome is not known. This single-center cohort from January 2003 to September 2015 consisted of 114 consecutive patients with TC. They were divided into 2 groups according to the presence (n = 32, 29.6%) or absence (n = 76, 70.3%) of KF. The end point of this retrospective study was a composite of in-hospital events, all-cause mortality, rehospitalization due to heart failure, stroke, and recurrence of TC (mean follow-up: 5 years)...

We assessed the effect of asymptomatic carotid atherosclerosis (CAS) on the development of cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) in a community-based population aged ≥55 years in China. A total of 1376 residents underwent CAS assessment by ultrasonography in July 2009. New CVD events, including stroke and coronary heart events, were collected at the follow-up survey at the end of 2014. After adjusting for baseline demographic characteristics and traditional CVD risk factors, the risk of CVD in patients with minimal CAS (mean common carotid artery intima-media thickness [CCA-IMT] ≥1 mm and no plaques), nonstenotic plaques (carotid stenosis <50%), and stenotic plaques (carotid stenosis ≥50%) was 0...

We investigated the relationship between the neutrophil-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) and in-stent restenosis (ISR) in patients with femoropopliteal chronic total occlusions (CTOs). The study enrolled 180 patients who had undergone successful stenting treatment for femoropopliteal CTO. Patients with ISR were subsequently classified into 2 groups: early-ISR (within 1 year) and late-ISR (after 1 year). The clinical characteristics, angiographic data, and follow-up data were recorded. The baseline NLR was significantly higher in the early-ISR group than that in the non-ISR group [3...

We compared the efficacy and safety of the transradial approach percutaneous coronary intervention (TRA-PCI) and transfemoral approach percutaneous coronary intervention (TFA-PCI) for bypass grafts lesions. Patients (n = 184) were retrospectively enrolled. Less contrast was used during the procedure in the TRA group than in the TFA group, 201.5 (45.5) mL versus 221.5 (49.1) mL, P = .004, although fluoroscopy time was longer in the TRA group, 22.5 (6.3) minutes versus 20.3 (6.1) minutes; P = .017. The incidence of net adverse clinical events (NACEs) was lower in the TRA group than in the TFA group (3...

Cardiac hematological malignancies (CHMs) are rare entities and comprise lymphoma, leukemic infiltration, and extramedullary manifestation of multiple myeloma. The aim of this work is to summarize typical growth patterns, imaging features, and outcome parameters of CHM. Overall, 12 cases from 4 centers were reviewed retrospectively together with 604 cases from the literature. Cardiac hematological malignancies were mainly represented by B-cell lymphoma (70.0%). Other entities were rarer. Almost half of the patients showed involvement of multiple cardiac structures...

Effect of atrial fibrillation (AF) on short- and long-term outcomes in heart failure (HF) is controversial. Accordingly, we examined this relationship in a national multicenter project using data from the Hearts Function Assessment Registry Trial in Saudi Arabia that studied the clinical features and outcomes of patients admitted with de novo and acute on chronic HF. Out of 2593 patients with HF, 449 (17.8%) had AF at presentation. Patients with AF were more likely to be males and older (mean age 65.2 ± 15...

Syntax score (SS) and Gensini score (GS) are used to determine the complexity and severity of coronary artery disease. Although there are some studies indicating the individual relationship of these scoring systems with the carotid intima-media thickness (cIMT) and epicardial fat tissue (EFT), there was no previous study that compared the SS and GS in that respect. We aimed to assess the relationship of SS and GS with predictors of atherosclerosis. We enrolled 522 patients. There were positive correlations between GS and SS tertiles with cIMT and EFT...

Telomere length (TL) has been associated with age-related health outcomes. We investigated the relationship of TL with cardiometabolic risk profile in adult Americans. We used the National Health and Nutrition Examination Surveys for 1999 to 2002, accounting for complex sampling and survey design. Of the 8892 eligible participants, 47.8% (n = 4123) were men. Mean serum high-density lipoprotein cholesterol concentrations significantly increased across increasing TL quarters ( P = .013), and mean fat mass, fat-free mass, hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c ), and C-reactive protein significantly decreased across increasing TL quarters (all P < ...

Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) is associated with substantial rates of vascular complications. The aim of our study is to describe the surgical management of percutaneous transfemoral access by a vascular surgeon and to report the 30-day postoperative vascular complications and mortality. Perioperative procedures to manage the femoral access site were recorded retrospectively from 220 consecutive patients who underwent TAVI. Postoperative vascular complications related to the main access were categorized according to the Valve Academic Research Consortium 2 classification...

von Willebrand Factor (vWF) is a well-known mediator of hemostasis and vascular inflammation. Its dynamic modulation in the bloodstream, according to hemodynamic conditions, makes it an appealing biomarker in patients with valvular heart disease (VHD). Recent studies highlight the close connection between vWF and VHD, with possible implications in the pathogenesis of VHD, promoting valve aging and calcification or favoring the development of infective endocarditis. Moreover, vWF has been recently proposed as a new diagnostic and prognostic tool in patients with valve stenosis or regurgitation, showing a strict correlation with severity of valve disease, outcome, and bleeding (Heyde syndrome)...

We evaluated the evolution of chronic medical therapy in patients admitted for carotid endarterectomy (CEA) over a 13-year period and to analyze the difference in medical treatment between symptomatic and asymptomatic patients. A retrospective study was conducted on patients treated between 2002 and 2015. The use of antiplatelets (acetylsalicylic acid [ASA], ticlopidine, and clopidogrel), oral anticoagulant therapy (OAT), statins and antihypertensives (angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors [ACE-I]/angiotensin receptor blockers [ARBs], β-blockers [BB]) administration was evaluated...
