BACKGROUND: Balloon advancement and dilation through chronic total occlusion segment could be challenging in some cases after successful wire crossing. The purpose of this study was to evaluate efficacy and safety of Tornus catheter (Asahi Intecc; Aichi, Japan) in percutaneous coronary intervention of chronic total occlusion in hard or balloon-uncrossable chronic total occlusion. METHODS: The present study is a retrospective and descriptive analysis of 14 hard or balloon-uncrossable chronic total occlusions treated percutaneously in our catheterization laboratory (cath lab)...

BACKGROUND: Several common metabolic risk factors contribute to development of both non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and coronary artery disease (CAD). The aim was to determine prevalence of NAFLD in patients with CAD. METHODS: This prospective study was carried out from December 2011 to June 2012. All patients with documented diagnosis of CAD with stenosis of one of the main coronary arteries or their branches were included in the study.

BACKGROUND: Midazolam is commonly and safely used in poisoning management and intensive care for the control of agitated poisoned patients. Despite the introduction of newer and safer antidepressants, tricyclic antidepressants (TCAs) are still prescribed and used in many countries due to their cost-effectiveness. Severe morbidity and mortality associated with these drugs arises largely from their well-documented cardiovascular toxicity. In this study we aimed to investigate the probable effect of midazolam on some hemodynamic indices in TCAs-poisoned patients...

BACKGROUND: Coronary arteriovenous fistula is a rare congenital or acquired abnormal connection between a coronary artery and any of the great vessels or any of the heart chambers. Most of them are diagnosed during routine coronary angiography. CASE REPORT: This case report illustrates a successful surgical ligating of multiple right coronary artery and circumflex artery fistulas to coronary sinus. CONCLUSION: According to our experience and literature review, it can be concluded that to prevent potential complications in various cases of coronary arteriovenous fistula, early surgical management, just after their condition has been diagnosed, is the best choice...

BACKGROUND: Plasma iron excess can lead to iron accumulation in heart, kidney and liver. Heart failure is a clinical widespread syndrome. In thalassemia, iron overload cardiomyopathy is caused by iron accumulation in the heart that leads to cardiac damage and heart failure. Digoxin increases the intracellular sodium concentration by inhibition of Na+/K+-ATPase that affects Na+/Ca2+ exchanger (NCX), which raises intracellular calcium and thus attenuates heart failure. The mechanism of iron uptake into cardiomyocytes is not exactly understood...

BACKGROUND: Although several studies have assessed the price of different food groups in developed countries, there is scarce evidence regarding developing countries. Also, there is no report regarding the price of cardioprotective compared with unhealthy foods. The aim of this study was to determine the trend of food cost across different food groups (cardioprotective vs. unhealthy) and to assess the association between food cost and nutritional quality of foods in Iran. METHODS: A list of foods consumed frequently by Iranian population was provided...

BACKGROUND: We have assessed the role of stress on compliance of patients with diabetes mellitus (DM) and hypertension (HTN) with taking prescribed medications and following dietary and exercise regimens. METHODS: A total of 9544 individuals more than 19 years of age were selected from three counties in central Iran. The presence of DM and HTN were asked from participants. We defined treatment adherence (compliance) based on agreement of individual's self-report behavior with recommendations from a physician...

BACKGROUND: Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) is a medical device to help cardiac synchronized contractility by electrical impulses. Improvement of symptoms and left ventricular systolic function, reducing hospital admissions and mortality in patients with moderate to severe heart failure are the main benefits of administration of cardiac resynchronization therapy. CASE REPORT: In this article, we describe a case of heart failure and left bundle branch block (LBBB) who was candidate for cardiac resynchronization therapy; but after managing hyperkalemia, left bundle branch block resolved, ejection fraction increased and cardiac resynchronization therapy implantation was canceled...

BACKGROUND: Numerous studies have been conducted on the predictive effects of high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) on cardiovascular events. Few studies have been conducted to investigate the effects of adiponectin for the prediction of the incident of cardiovascular events in the Middle East area. This study compared the predictive effect of hs-CRP and adiponectin on healthy volunteers for the prediction of cerebrovascular disease (CVD). METHODS: This nested case-control in original Isfahan Cohort Study (ICS) was conducted from 2001 to 2011...

BACKGROUND: Health-related quality of life (HRQOL) evaluation is an important measure of the impact of the disease. As more people with coronary heart disease (CHD) live longer, doctors and researchers want to know how they manage in day to day life. It looked like adults with CHD had a decrease QOL. The aim of this study was to comparison of HRQOL of patients who underwent percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) and coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) and to assess its main determinants in the whole sample of coronary artery disease (CAD) patients...

BACKGROUND: The increasing incidence of diabetes mellitus (DM) is of great clinical significance. In this study, we aimed to investigate whether exposure of endothelium-intact aortic rings to simvastatin could have a vasorelaxant effect in diabetic rats. METHODS: For induction of diabetes, streptozotocin (STZ) (60 mg/kg, i.p., single dose) was used. After 1 month, the cumulative reaction of isolated endothelium-intact aortic rings was determined to KCl and phenylephrine (PE) in the absence and presence of nitric oxide (NO) synthase inhibitor, i...
