OBJECTIVE: Doxorubicin (DOX) induces cardiac dysfunction. Paracetamol (APAP) has also been established as an effective cardioprotective agent during ischemia/reperfusion. Therefore, this study aims to evaluate the effect of APAP on DOX-induced cardiotoxicity in ischemia/reperfused isolated rat heart. METHODS: A total of 36 rats were equally divided into four groups: control, DOX (30 min, 20 µM DOX perfusion), APAP (15 min before and after ischemia, 0.35 mM APAP perfusion), and DOX+APAP (perfused with the same protocol in DOX and APAP groups)...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the association between CYP2C19 and ABCB1 polymorphisms and clopidogrel resistance (CR) in patients with cardiovascular disease in Beijing district. METHODS: In total, 325 patients were enrolled in the study, including 101 experimental group patients and 224 control group patients. The experimental group was divided into CR group (n=30) and non-CR group (n=71) according to the adenosine diphosphate (ADP)-induced platelet inhibition rate in thromboelastography (TEG) (ADP-induced platelet inhibition rate of <30% was defined as CR and rate of 30%-100% was defined as non-CR)...

OBJECTIVE: Hypertension is a significant risk factor for atrial fibrillation (AF). The role of pulmonary vein (PV) remodeling in the mechanistic association between hypertension and AF is not definitive. In this study, we aimed to identify changes in the electrophysiology and histology in PVs in two-kidney, one-clip (2K1C) hypertensive rats. METHODS: Fifty male Sprague-Dawley rats were classified into the 2K1C and sham-operated groups. The systolic blood pressure was measured every 2 weeks...

OBJECTIVE: Coronary artery ectasia (CAE) is defined as an angiographic enlargement of a portion of the coronary artery between 1.5 and 2 times the diameter of the adjacent normal coronary artery. It has been demonstrated that increased serum prolidase activity (SPA) is associated with increased collagen turnover. We aimed to analyze the relationship between CAE and serum SPA levels. METHODS: This study used a prospective case protocol design. A total of 40 consecutive patients with isolated right CAE and normal coronary arteries (23 men, 17 women; mean age, 62...

OBJECTIVE: In hemodialysis (HD) patients, cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the major cause of mortality and morbidity. In atherosclerotic diseases, iron gets accumulated in the arterial wall. Hepcidin is an important hormone in iron metabolism. Furthermore, hepcidin is associated with atherosclerotic disease. Therefore, this study aims to investigate the relation of serum hepcidin-25 (SH-25) and sub-clinic atherosclerosis measured by carotid intima-media thickness (CIMT) and mortality in HD patients...

OBJECTIVE: Discontinuation of metformin treatment in patients scheduled for elective coronary angiography (CAG) is controversial because of post-procedural risks including acute contrast-induced nephropathy (CIN) and lactic acidosis (LA). This study aims to discuss the safety of continuing metformin treatment in patients undergoing elective CAG with normal or mildly impaired renal functions. METHODS: Our study was designed as a single-centered, randomized, and observational study including 268 patients undergoing elective CAG with an estimated glomerular filtration rate of >60 mL/min/1...

OBJECTIVE: Aortic stiffness is an important cardiovascular risk marker, which can be determined using different noninvasive techniques. Aortic propagation velocity (APV) has recently been established as a novel echocardiographic parameter of aortic stiffness. This study aimed to investigate the association between APV and the classical echocardiography-derived aortic stiffness parameters, aortic distensibility (AD) and aortic strain (AS), in a group of otherwise healthy individuals. METHODS: In total, 97 consecutive healthy subjects were recruited in this observational study...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to elucidate the mechanism of cerebral injury and to evaluate selective antegrade cerebral perfusion (SACP) as a superior neuroprotective strategy for prolonged deep hypothermic circulatory arrest (DHCA). METHODS: Twelve pigs (6-8-week old) were randomly assigned to DHCA alone (n=6) and DHCA with SACP (n=6) at 18°C for 80 min groups. Serum S100 was determined using an immunoassay analyzer. The concentrations of cerebral dialysate glucose, lactate, pyruvate, glycerol, and glutamate were measured using a microdialysis analyzer...

Elderly patients with atrial fibrillation are at a higher risk of both ischemic and bleeding events compared with younger patients; therefore, balancing risks and benefits of antithrombotic strategies in this population is crucial. Recent studies have shown that because the risk of stroke increases with age more than the risk of bleeding, the absolute benefit of oral anticoagulation is the highest in elderly patients in whom it outweighs the risk of bleeding. Direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs) have been developed as a treatment for the prevention of cardioembolic stroke to overcome some limitations of warfarin, such as the need for frequent monitoring, labile INR values requiring frequent dose adjustment, dietary and drugs interactions, and increased risk of intracranial bleeding...

OBJECTIVE: Speckle tracking echocardiography (STE) enables global and regional evaluation of the left ventricle (LV); therefore, it is the most useful method for detecting subclinical dysfunction in patients exposed to cardiotoxic agents. A novel technique triplane (3P) echocardiography also allows single beat assessment of LV global longitudinal strain values. We firstly aimed to demonstrate both two-dimensional (2D)- and 3PSTE-derived LV global longitudinal strain measurements in children after anthracycline exposure...
