BACKGROUND: Little is known about the health-related quality of life (HRQOL) following adverse bleeding events associated with antithrombotic drug therapy. This systematic review assesses the HRQOL of patients who suffered a bleeding event related to antithrombotic drug use. METHODS: Literature search was performed using PubMed, EMBASE, and the Cochrane Library from inception through June 16, 2017. Studies measuring HRQOL after a bleeding event related to antithrombotic drug therapy for primary or secondary prevention of a thromboembolic event were included...

BACKGROUND: Angina is an important clinical symptom indicating underlying coronary artery disease (CAD). Its characteristics are important for the diagnosis and risk-stratification of patients with CAD. Currently, we aimed to investigate the association of chest pain characteristics with the presence of obstructive CAD in a contemporary cohort of patients undergoing coronary angiography for suspected stable CAD. METHODS: Consecutive patients undergoing coronary angiography for suspected stable CAD (n=686) in a single University Hospital Cardiology Department were enrolled...

EDITORIAL

Evidence from clinical studies suggests that patients with low testosterone levels are at increased cardiovascular disease risk. Even though the exact mechanisms remain poorly understood, low plasma testosterone is associated with a pro-atherogenic lipid profile, insulin resistance and increased levels of pro-inflammatory mediators, and vascular dysfunction which is typically observed in patients with hypogonadism. Furthermore, recent evidence suggests that testosterone deficiency has also direct adverse effects on endothelium and nitric oxide bioavailability...

BACKGROUND: Most pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) biomarkers are for risk stratification and prognosis prediction. We aimed to evaluate the diagnostic value of circulating serum miR-509-3p in PAH with congenital heart disease. METHODS: Preoperative blood samples were collected from patients diagnosed as PAH to receive right ventricular catheterization. According to right ventricular catheterization results, they were divided into a control group with normal mean pulmonary artery pressure (mPAP <20 mmHg) and a PAH group (mPAP ≥25 mmHg)...

Left ventricular enlargement and dysfunction are fundamental components of dilated cardiomyopathy. Dilated cardiomyopathy is a major cause of heart failure and cardiac transplantation. A wide variety of etiologies underlie acquired and familial DCM. Familial disease is reported in 20% to 35% of cases. A genetic substrate is recognized in at least 30% of familial cases. A recently proposed scheme, defines DCM as a continuum of subclinical and clinical phenotypes. The evolution of classification systems permitted use of effective treatment strategies in disorders sharing same structural and functional characteristics and common clinical expression...

INTRODUCTION: Proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin type 9 (PCSK9) levels predict cardiovascular risk. We aimed at determining the correlation of PCSK9 levels with predictors of cardiovascular risk, such as central hemodynamics and carotid intima-media thickness (cIMT) in subjects with familial dyslipidaemias. METHODS: Thirty-three asymptomatic subjects (age 45.4±12.3, 21 men) with either familial combined hyperlipidemia or heterozygous familial hypercholesterolemia, free of hypolipidaemic therapy, underwent evaluation of central hemodynamics (aortic augmentation index [AIx@75], augmented pressure [AP]), and cIMT...

BACKGROUND: Natural disasters, such as tsunami, hurricanes and earthquakes, may have a negative impact on cardiac health. The aim of our systematic review is to evaluate the impact of earthquakes on the incidence of acute coronary syndromes and cardiac mortality and to examine the impact of the time of earthquakes on the incidence of acute coronary syndromes. MATERIALS AND METHODS: MEDLINE and Cochrane databases were searched for studies reporting on the impact of earthquakes on acute coronary syndromes from inception until December 20, 2017...

Risk stratification in acute coronary syndromes (ACS) have been based previously on severity of acute clinical presentation, presence of cardiovascular comorbidities and abnormalities of ischemia-specific biomarkers most importantly troponins. Natriuretic peptides (NPs), which become elevated upon increased myocardial wall stress, are established diagnostic and prognostic biomarkers in patients with heart failure. Recently, their prognostic potential in ACS has been reported, specifically as predictors of future new-onset heart failure or left ventricular systolic dysfunction...

BACKGROUND: Diabetes mellitus (DM) is the most common metabolic disease and increases 2-4 times the risk of cardiovascular disease in comparison with the general population. There are limited data on the prevalence of heart diseases in subjects with DM in Greece. In this study, we examined the prevalence of self-reported DM and cardiac as well as other main comorbidities in a representative sample of the adult Greek population. METHODS: The target study population included 30,843 habitants stratified by gender, age and district that was representative of the adult population of Greece in the year 2010...

Antithrombotic treatment including anticoagulants and antiplatelets has been evolved during the last decades, and several recommendations have been included in the latest guidelines regarding the proper management of vascular surgery patients. However, there are significant differences compared to older recommendations, and indications vary among patients with peripheral artery disease, carotid disease and abdominal aortic aneurysm. In this mini review, we critically evaluate all this data in order to produce useful conclusions for everyday clinical practice...

BACKGROUND: Acute myocardial infarction (AMI) complicated by arrhythmia is a risk factor for exacerbating AMI disease and high fatality rate. The ability of the organism to resist oxidative stress is weak and the oxyradical metabolism is substantially hampered, which can be measured by detecting activity of releated enzymes. This study is to investigate the correlation between the activities of superoxide dismutase (SOD), malondialdehyde (MDA) and Na+ -K+ -ATPase in peripheral blood of patients and acute myocardial infarction (AMI) with varying degrees of arrhythmia...
