OBJECTIVE: The goal of the present study was to determine covariates of serum lipoprotein (Lp) (a) within fasting glucose and glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) categories, and to detect features that were different among covariates based on residence in Marmara and Central Anatolia (Marm-CA) regions or remaining 5 geographic regions of Turkey. METHODS: Data of randomly-selected group of 1167 men and women (mean age 61 years) who participated in biennial surveys of 2013 and 2015 were cross-sectionally analyzed in 6 categories...

OBJECTIVE: Angiographic assessment of stenosis has limited predictive value for functionally significant lesions compared with fractional flow reserve (FFR). The recently developed angiographic DILEMMA score, which consists of minimal lumen diameter (MLD), lesion length (LL) and Bypass Angioplasty Revascularization Investigation (BARI) Myocardial Jeopardy Index (MJI) was found to have diagnostic value in predicting FFR ≤0.80. The present study was an investigation of prediction of FFR ≤0...

OBJECTIVE: It is thought that abnormal cardiac impulses of the autonomic nervous system during sleep are responsible for sleep-related bradyarrhythmias. Despite a proposed common etiopathogenesis and having common name of "sleep-related bradyarrhythmias," precise importance of sinoatrial or atrioventricular (AV) node involvement remains elusive. This study aimed to determine whether there is a difference in sleeprelated bradyarrhythmias from the point of view of heart rate variability (HRV)...

OBJECTIVE: Optimal duration of dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) after drug-eluting stent (DES) implantation remains controversial. The present study is an assessment of efficacy and safety of short-term (≤6 months) DAPT after DES implantation in patients with coronary artery disease, especially in important subgroups. METHODS: PubMed, Embase, and the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials were searched for randomized, controlled trials comparing short-term and long-term (>6 months) DAPT after DES implantation...

OBJECTIVE: The goal of the present study was to investigate the effects of 5-lipoxygenase (5-LOX) inhibition, alone and with cyclooxygenase (COX) inhibitors, on inflammatory parameters and apoptosis in ischemia/reperfusion (I/R)-induced myocardial damage in rats. For this purpose, zileuton, a selective and potent inhibitor of 5-LOX, resulting in suppression leukotriene production, was used. METHODS: Male Wistar rats (200-250 g; n=12 per group) were used in the study...

OBJECTIVE: The primary aim of the present study was to evaluate the complications, particularly conduction blocks, subsequent morbidity and mortality, and effect of thrombolytic therapy in Indian patients with inferior wall myocardial infarction (IWMI). METHODS: This was a prospective, observational, single-center study conducted at LPS Institute of Cardiology, Kanpur, from December 2011 to May 2014. Patients who presented with typical chest pain and were subsequently diagnosed by standardized diagnostic criteria as having IWMI were enrolled...

OBJECTIVE: Chronic anabolic androgenic steroid (AAS) consumption increases incidence of cardiovascular abnormalities in athletes and mechanisms underlying those abnormalities continue to be investigated. This study examines whether nandrolone consumption induced cardiac and coronary artery wall abnormalities via oxidative stress. It was also designed to determine whether enforced swimming augmented possible cardiotoxic effects of nandrolone in rat heart. METHODS: Twenty-four male Wistar rats were divided into 3 groups: control, nandrolone, and nandrolone with enforced swimming...

OBJECTIVE: Secundum atrial septal defect (ASDII) has multifactorial etiology that is combination of environmental (e.g., mother's exposure to toxicity, ethnicity) and genetic causes. Aim of the present study was to screen a Moroccan population with ASDII for NKX2-5 variants and to assess risk factors that may contribute to emergence of the disorder. METHODS: Thirty-two non-syndromic ASDII patients were screened for NKX2-5 variants using direct sequencing of polymerase chain reactionamplified coding regions...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of the present study was to assess long-term prognostic value of high on-treatment platelet reactivity (HTPR) in patients after acute myocardial infarction (MI) and its association with possible risk factors. METHODS: This prospective, case-control study was an observation of 198 patients who had acute MI. Response to aspirin and clopidogrel was assessed using impedance aggregometry. Patients were divided into groups of adequate response, dual poor responsiveness (DPR), poor responsiveness to aspirin (PRA), and poor responsiveness to clopidogrel (PRC)...

OBJECTIVE: The present study is an exploration of the dynamic changes of plasma mitochondrial deoxyribonucleic acid (mtDNA) and inflammatory level in patients with acute myocardial infarction (MI). METHODS: Thirty-eight patients with acute MI and 33 control participants were included in the study. Blood samples were collected on admission, 12 hours post-percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), 24 hours post-PCI, and 48 hours post-PCI. White blood cell (WBC) count and Creactive protein (CRP) level were determined...

OBJECTIVE: Atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease is a major global cause of death. The common approach in primary prevention of cardiovascular disease is to identify patients at high risk for cardiovascular disease. This article analyzes and compares the application of 2013 American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association (ACC/AHA) guideline and the 2011 European Society of Cardiology (ESC) guideline for the management of dyslipidemias for primary prevention in Turkish population...

OBJECTIVE: The present study compared the unfavorable effects of protein oxidation and deoxyribonucleic acid damage on patients with white coat hypertension (WCH), sustained hypertension (HT), and normotensives. METHODS: Participants were allocated into 3 groups: 40 healthy controls, 36 patients with WCH, and 40 patients with sustained HT. Patients with risk factors for atherosclerosis, endocrine diseases, alcoholism, or masked hypertension were excluded. Plasma level of protein carbonyl (PCO), ischemia modified albumin (IMA), total thiol (T-SH), prooxidant-antioxidant balance (PAB), advanced protein oxidation products (AOPPs), and urinary level of 8-hydroxy-2'-deoxyguanosine (8-OHdG) were measured and relationship between these oxidative stress parameters and WCH and sustained HT was analyzed...

OBJECTIVE: Previous studies revealed the relationship between stable coronary artery disease (CAD) and serum adropin level, but this relationship has not been investigated in patients with non-ST segment elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI). The present study is an analysis of the relationship between adropin and severity of CAD assessed based on SYNTAX score in patients with NSTEMI. METHODS: A total of 109 participants, 80 patients with NSTEMI and 29 healthy individuals, were prospectively enrolled in the study...

Heart has long been considered a terminally differentiated organ. Recent studies, however, have suggested that there is a modest degree of cardiomyocyte (CM) turnover in adult mammalian heart, albeit not sufficient for replacement of lost CMs following cardiac injuries. Cardiac regeneration studies in various model organisms including zebrafish, newt, and more recently in neonatal mouse, have demonstrated that CM dedifferentiation and concomitant proliferation play important roles in replacement of lost CMs and restoration of cardiac contractility...
