OBJECTIVE: An imbalance between parasympathetic and sympathetic tone is a main cause of neurally mediated reflex syncope (NMRS). These patients may be very symptomatic and the condition may require cardiac pacemaker implantation. Cardioneuroablation (CNA) is a relatively novel technique based on radiofrequency ablation of vagal ganglia that can be used in treatment of NMRS. The aim of this analysis was to compare potential role of CNA in patients with NMRS. METHODS: In accordance with the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses Statement, literature search was conducted using the keywords "cardioneuroablation," "vagal denervation," "reflex syncope," "vagal ablation," and "ganglionic plexi ablation...

A low testosterone level and hypogonadism are associated with cardiovascular disease. Aging, chronic health problems, and obesity are all associated with a low testosterone level as well as the presence and severity of cardiovascular disease. Testosterone is increasingly prescribed for patients with clinical hypogonadism and a low testosterone level. The information we have is still contradictory regarding testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) and its association with adverse cardiovascular events. Older patients and patients who are susceptible to cardiovascular diseases could be at risk with a testosterone prescription...

A 3-year-old girl with the diagnosis of chronic granulomatous disease (CGD) was hospitalized for bronchopneumonia and congestive heart failure. Her medical history included methylprednisolone medication for autoimmune gastric outlet obstruction. Computed tomography revealed pneumonic infiltrations and pericardial thickening. A pulsed-wave Doppler recording revealed E/A >1. During a pericardiectomy, multiple islands of thick, firm-walled, fibrinous exudate-containing, small abscess formations were observed...

Idiopathic ascending aortitis is an insidious disease most often encountered during an evaluation for other cardiovascular and connective tissue diseases. To the best of our knowledge, admission to an emergency department with chest pain due to idiopathic ascending aortitis has not been reported before. Herein, the case of a 46-year-old man with chest and back pain symptoms that were discovered to be secondary solely to idiopathic ascending aortitis is described.

Brugada syndrome is an inherited cardiac arrhythmia condition characterized by coved-type ST elevation and J point elevation of at least 2 mm in at least 2 of the right precordial electrocardiogram (ECG) leads (V1-3). An increasing number of noncardiac agents, including psychotropic and anesthetic drugs, have been shown to induce a characteristic Brugada ECG pattern, predisposing the patient to fatal ventricular arrhythmias. However, there are scarce data regarding the clinical significance. In this case series, a typical Brugada pattern was unmasked by lithium, valproic acid, and thiocolchicoside; however, the clinical scenario was different in all 3 cases, ranging from an asymptomatic patient to sudden cardiac arrest...

Premature ventricular contractions (PVCs) can cause clinical deterioration in patients with heart failure and increase the frequency of shocks delivered by an implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD). Epicardial PVC/ventricular tachycardia (VT) is seen less often in ischemic cardiomyopathy. Radiofrequency catheter ablation is the most effective treatment option for the management of PVC/VT and can improve cardiac function. Presently described is a patient with ischemic cardiomyopathy and frequent PVCs and VT runs with multiple ICD therapies who was treated with simultaneous radiofrequency catheter ablation in the anterior interventricular vein and cardiac resynchronization therapy defibrillator upgrade in the same procedure...

Vasospastic angina, also known as Prinzmetal's angina, is thought to occur due to vascular hyper-reactivity to various stimuli. Response to medical therapy is usually good; however, 1 out of 5 patients has resistant symptoms. Rarely, potentially lethal arrhythmias can occur due to vasospasm, and those patients are reported to have a poorer prognosis. Presently described is a case of resistant vasospastic angina with persistent symptoms under calcium channel blocker and nitrate treatment. The patient presented with hemodynamically unstable rapid-rate ventricular tachycardia, which was quite resistant to recurrent cardioversion...

Right ventricle perforation is an uncommon, but potentially fatal, possible complication of pericardiocentesis. We presented a case of right ventricular perforation that developed during urgent pericardiocentesis due to tamponade. This case was successfully treated with the incremental removal of the drainage catheter, replacing it with a smaller catheter at 10-minute intervals. This may be an alternative option to treat iatrogenic right ventricle puncture occurring during pericardiocentesis without cardiac surgery or a vascular closure device...

OBJECTIVE: Complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) has become more and more widespread around the world. CAM is a broad term that refers to all medical healthcare services, methods, and practices that are not part of standard medical care, as well as the accompanying theories and beliefs. The aim of the present study was to investigate the use of herbal medicinal products in cardiac patients, as well as the methods of administration of the products. METHODS: This descriptive cross-sectional study included 199 patients aged over 18 years who were hospitalized in the Defne Hospital department of cardiology and volunteered to participate in a 20-item survey between April 2016 and June 2016...

OBJECTIVE: The histological characteristics of plaque may affect the hemodynamic outcome of a given coronary stenosis. In particular, the potential effect of volumetric calcium content and the topographical distribution in the lesion segment on physiological outcome has not yet been investigated. The aim of this study was to identify any potential correlation between patterns of calcification and the fractional flow reserve (FFR) and the coronary remodeling index (RMI). METHODS: A total of 26 stable angina pectoris and 34 acute coronary syndrome patients without persistent ST-segment elevation constituted the study population...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between oxidative/antioxidative stress markers and the diagnosis and complexity of coronary artery disease (CAD) in patients with stable CAD. METHODS: A total of 145 patients were enrolled in the study. Based on coronary angiography results, the patients were categorized into 2 groups: those without CAD (Group 1) and those with CAD (Group 2). The patients in Group 2 were also categorized into low score and moderate/high score groups according to their SYNTAX score...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to delineate in detail the longitudinal association of total cholesterol (TC) and highdensity lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) levels with overall mortality in middle-aged participants of the biennial Turkish Adult Risk Factor study. METHODS: Baseline lipid variables were analyzed in sex-specific deciles. A baseline age of 45 to 84 years as an inclusion criterion led to the enrollment of 2121 men and women. Cox regression analyses were performed...
