OBJECTIVE: The association between chronic use of methotrexate and decreased risk of ischemic cardiovascular events (CVE) among patients with psoriatic or rheumatoid arthritis (RA) was investigated using a systematic review and meta-analysis. METHODS: The studies should have recruited adults receiving methotrexate, followed up for at least one year. Moreover, studies should have reported "hard" cardiovascular endpoints, by evaluating the cardiovascular outcomes of the habitual users of the drug or of new users compared with patients with the same disease who had never used methotrexate...

One of the important problems of the patients undergoing acute myocardial infarction (MI) is early development of heart failure. It has been revealed in various studies that renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS) has a significant role in this process. The studies conducted with angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors have resulted in decreased mortality rate. Another RAAS blocker which was discovered about ten years later than other ACE inhibitors in historical process is angiotensin receptor blockers (ARB) inhibiting the efficiency of angiotensin 2 by binding to angiotensin 1 receptor...

Hypertension, which is pointed to be the most frequent cause of death in the World and in Turkey and defined by the World Health Organization as global health crisis and the prominent risk factor for cardiovascular diseases, is a problem threatening public health. Renin-angiotensin system (RAS) plays an important role in pathophysiology and in turn treatment of the disease. The drugs suppressing RAS are recommended both for monotherapy and combinations. Together with the blood pressure lowering effects and positive contributions of this group of drugs to the cardiovascular and renal process have been proved by clinical studies...

It is known that the drugs which suppress the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system can prevent target organ damage, independent of their blood pressure lowering effects. Besides, it has been reported that this group of drugs has positive metabolic effects. There are many studies showing that valsartan, being an angiotensin receptor blocker and widely used in hypertension treatment, has cardioprotective and renoprotective effects in high risk patients. It has been seen in these studies that, valsartan treatment has a decreasing effect on proteinuria, independent of its blood pressure lowering effects in the patients having either diabetic and non-diabetic nephropathy...

Heart failure which occurs due to various causes including primarily coronary artery diseases and hypertension is a syndrome with complex physiopathology and clinic that can impair patients' quality of life or lead to death. However, it is well known that the activation of renin-angiotensin system (RAS) has an important role in the physiopathology of heart failure with reduced ejection fraction. Therefore, suppression of this system for achieving a gain in the treatment of the disease has been among prominent concerns...

REVIEW
Uğur Canpolat, Necla Özer
Cardiovascular diseases are the foremost cause of morbidity and mortality for both genders worldwide. Appropriate diagnostic tests with increased accuracy and safety provide the decisive relationship between diagnosis and treatment of coronary artery disease (CAD). However, it has been known that women at risk for occurrence of CAD are less often conducted for the proper diagnostic tests compared to men. Many noninvasive diagnostic modalities (exercise/stress electrocardiogram, echocardiography, nuclear imaging, magnetic resonance imaging and coronary computerized tomography) are available for this purpose in the women...
