OBJECTIVE: The extent of severity and complexity of coronary artery disease (CAD) in patients presenting with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) and non-STEMI (NSTEMI) and possible correlations between serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25(OH)D) have not yet been adequately studied. We evaluated the relationship between 25(OH)D levels and the burden of CAD as assessed by the SYNTAX score (SXscore) in patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS) including STEMI and NSTEMI. METHODS: After exclusion, a total of 113 patients who were admitted to our hospital due to ACS and who were referred for undergoing coronary angiography were prospectively included...

OBJECTIVE: Atherosclerosis is a chronic inflammatory condition and is one of the main causes of death worldwide. Macrophages play important roles in the formation of atherosclerotic plaques. Apoptosis is progressively observed while plaques develop, although the precise mechanisms and outcomes of apoptosis in atherosclerosis development and progression are still contradictory. This study was conducted to explore the effects of simvastatin and retinoic acid receptor-related orphan receptor alpha (RORα) ligands on apoptosis in human acute monocytic leukemia (THP-1) macrophage cells...

OBJECTIVE: Inflammation and autoimmune responses play an important role in recurrence of atrial fibrillation (AF). Serum globulin levels are a commonly used clinical index that represents inflammation and autoimmune response. This study aimed to determine the relationship between baseline serum globulin levels and the risk of recurrence after ablation in lone AF patients. METHODS: We enrolled 348 lone AF patients undergoing radiofrequency catheter ablation for the first time for whom complete follow-up data were available...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the contribution of six polymorphisms to the platelet reactivity in patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS) treated with clopidogrel. METHODS: Cross-sectional study of 278 consecutive patients with ACS. Detailed clinical information for each patient was collected and genotypes (CYP2C9*2, CYP2C9*3, CYP2C19*2, CYP2C19*17, CYP3A4*1B, and PON1-Q192R) were evaluated with TaqMan® and KASPar® assays. Platelet reactivity was measured with VerifyNow®...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of computed tomography (CT) attenuation values in the characterization of pericardial effusion. METHODS: This study consisted of 96 patients with pericardial effusion who underwent pericardiocentesis. For further diagnostic evaluation of pericardial effusion, all the patients were assessed by thorax CT. CT attenuation values were measured from at least 5 different areas of pericardial fluid by specifying the largest region of interest...

OBJECTIVE: New oral anticoagulants (NOACs) are increasingly used both for prevention of stroke in non-valvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF) and the treatment of venous thromboembolism (VTE). In this study, we aimed to evaluate the current patterns of NOACs treatment in Turkey. Moreover, demographic and clinical parameters and bleeding and/or embolic events under NOACs treatment were analyzed. METHODS: The New Oral Anticoagulants-TURKey (NOAC-TURK) study was designed as a multicenter cross-sectional study...

OBJECTIVE: Xindening oral liquid (Xin) is a widely used traditional Chinese medicine for the treatment of chronic heart failure (CHF). However, the exact mechanisms related to its therapeutic effects against CHF remain unclear. In the present study, we investigate the effects of Xin on cardiac function in CHF rats and the possible mechanisms involved. METHODS: Transverse aortic constriction (TAC) was conducted to induce a CHF rat model in this study. Sixty male Wistar rats were randomly assigned to six groups 28 days after TAC: sham; CHF model; Xin at concentrations of 5 ml/kg, 10 mL/kg, and 20 mL/kg; and QiLi 0...

OBJECTIVE: In the past few decades, several studies have reported the physiological effects of listening to music. The physiological effects of different music types on different people are different. In the present study, we aimed to examine the effects of listening to traditional Persian music on electrocardiogram (ECG) signals in young women. METHODS: Twenty-two healthy females participated in this study. ECG signals were recorded under two conditions: rest and music...

OBJECTIVE: Nurses are usually first witnesses to in-hospital sudden cardiac arrests. Training of nurses has an impact on the efficiency and outcome of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), and thus, assessment of CPR knowledge among undergraduate nurses is very important to improve training program. METHODS: The questionnaire comprised of three parts about CPR knowledge: the first dealing with general questions to understand the importance of CPR in clinical practice; the second comprising the main goal and accuracy of CPR intervention; and the last consisting of questions targeting the indications, methods, and effectiveness of CPR...

OBJECTIVE: Prediabetes is a dysglycemic state and is associated with subtle myocardial injury and dysfunction. We evaluated atrial conduction times (ACTs) and atrial electromechanical delays (EMDs) in prediabetic patients with coronary artery disease (CAD). METHODS: In the present study, we recruited 128 consecutive patient candidates (40 euglycemic, 48 prediabetic, and 40 diabetic patients) for coronary artery bypass grafting. ACTs were measured using tissue Doppler imaging (TDI)...

OBJECTIVE: The cardiovascular effects of short-term high-dose steroid treatment (pulse steroid treatment) have not yet been clarified. We examined the short- and long-term effects of pulse steroid treatment in demyelinating diseases on endothelial and cardiac functions. METHODS: In this prospective study, we included 35 patients (20 females and 15 males; mean age, 32.8±9.3 years) who were not treated with steroids and who were previously diagnosed with multiple sclerosis or neuromyelitis optica...

Contact force (CF) monitoring can be useful in accomplishing circumferential pulmonary vein (PV) isolation for atrial fibrillation (AF). This meta-analysis aimed to assess the efficacy and safety of a CF-sensing catheter in treating AF. Randomized controlled trials or non-randomized observational studies comparing AF ablation using CF-sensing or standard non-CF (NCF)-sensing catheters were identified from PubMed, EMBASE, Cochrane Library, Wanfang Data, and China National Knowledge Infrastructure (January 1, 1998-2016)...
