Oxidative modifications of lipids and lipoproteins have long been linked to the pathogenesis of cardiovascular diseases including atherosclerosis and coronary disease. Furthermore, overwhelming evidence indicate that oxidized lipids are also associated with myocardial dysfunction and cardiomyopathy. Oxidized lipid derivatives are generated by enzymatic and non-enzymatic reactions with unsaturated lipids in the cell and foods. In addition, blood LDL particles are prone to oxidation leading to the formation of oxidized LDL (oxLDL), which is often associated with obesity, diabetes and metabolic disease...

BACKGROUND: Chronic intermittent hypoxia (CIH), an important basis of the pathogenesis of organ damage induced by obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS), is associated with myocardial injury, such as left ventricular dysfunction, apoptosis, and oxidative stress. Endogenous hydrogen sulfide (H2 S) plays an important role in maintaining cardiovascular functions. Many studies have demonstrated that exogenous H2 S has protective effects against myocardial injury induced by various cardiovascular diseases, and inhibiting the generation of endogenous H2 S has opposite effects...

The current echocardiographic diagnostic criteria for noncompaction cardiomyopathy (NCC) have variable sensitivity and low specificity. Moreover, there are limited data on the use of myocardial deformation imaging for early detection of myocardial dysfunction in children with NCC. We describe left ventricular (LV) deformation patterns in children with NCC, with the goal of identifying a potential diagnostic pattern. We prospectively enrolled 30 children with NCC (47% male; mean age 7.2 years) and 30 age- and gender-matched controls...

Steinert's disease or Myotonic Dystrophy type 1 (DM1) is an autosomal dominant multisystemic disorder characterized by myotonia, muscle and facial weakness, cataracts, cognitive, endocrine and gastrointestinal involvement, and cardiac conduction abnormalities. Although mild myocardial dysfunction may be detected in this syndrome with age, overt myocardial dysfunction with heart failure is not frequent. Cardiac resynchronization therapy is an effective treatment to improve morbidity and reduce mortality in patients with DM1 showing intra-ventricular conduction delay and/or congestive heart failure...

Introduction: Increased galectin-3 is associated with ischemic cardiomyopathy, although its role in early remodeling post-myocardial infarction (MI) has not been fully elucidated. There are no data demonstrating that blocking galectin-3 expression would have an impact on the heart and that its relationship to remodeling is not simply an epiphenomenon. The direct association between galectin-3 and myocardial inflammation, dysfunction, and adverse cardiovascular outcomes post-MI was examined using clinical and translational studies...

Cardiomyopathy develops in >90% of Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) patients by the second decade of life. We assessed the associations between DMD gene mutations, as well as Latent transforming growth factor-beta-binding protein 4 (LTBP4) haplotypes, and age at onset of myocardial dysfunction in DMD. DMD patients with baseline normal left ventricular systolic function and genotyping between 2004 and 2013 were included. Patients were grouped in multiple ways: specific DMD mutation domains, true loss-of-function mutations (group A) versus possible residual gene expression (group B), and LTBP4 haplotype...

Septic myocardial dysfunction remains prevalent and raises mortality rate in patients with sepsis. During sepsis, tissues undergo tremendous oxidative stress which contributes critically to organ dysfunction. Edaravone, a potent radical scavenger, has been proved beneficial in ischemic injuries involving hypoxia-inducible factor- (HIF-) 1, a key regulator of a prominent antioxidative protein heme oxygenase- (HO-) 1. However, its effect in septic myocardial dysfunction remains unclarified. We hypothesized that edaravone may prevent septic myocardial dysfunction by inducing the HIF-1/HO-1 pathway...

BACKGROUND: Sepsis is a common condition encountered by emergency and critical care physicians, with significant costs, both economic and human. Myocardial dysfunction in sepsis is a well-recognized but poorly understood phenomenon. There is an extensive body of literature on this subject, yet results are conflicting and no objective definition of septic cardiomyopathy exists, representing a critical knowledge gap. OBJECTIVES: In this article, we review the pathophysiology of septic cardiomyopathy, covering the effects of key inflammatory mediators on both the heart and the peripheral vasculature, highlighting the interconnectedness of these two systems...

Background: Recent studies have indicated that autophagy is involved in sepsis-induced myocardial dysfunction. This study aimed to investigate the change of autophagy in cecal ligation and puncture (CLP)-induced myocardium dysfunction and its relationship with mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) pathway. Methods: Totally, 12 rats were randomly divided into CLP group or sham-operated (SHAM) group. Cardiac tissues were harvested 18 h after CLP or sham operation. Pathology was detected by hematoxylin and eosin staining, cardiac functions by echocardiography, distribution of microtubule-associated protein light chain 3 type II (LC3II) by immunohistochemical staining, and autophagic vacuoles by transmission electron microscopy...

Sildenafil is a potential new treatment for placental insufficiency in human pregnancies as it reduces the breakdown of vasodilator nitric oxide. Pulmonary vasodilatation is observed in normoxemic fetuses following sildenafil administration. Placental insufficiency often leads to fetal hypoxemia that can cause pulmonary vasoconstriction and fetal cardiac dysfunction as evidenced by reduced isovolumic myocardial velocities. We tested the hypotheses that sildenafil, when given directly to the hypoxemic fetus, reverses reactive pulmonary vasoconstriction, increases left ventricular cardiac output by increasing pulmonary venous return, and ameliorates hypoxemic myocardial dysfunction...

Cardiovascular dysfunction is a major complication associated with sepsis induced mortality. Cardiac fibrosis plays a critical role in sepsis induced cardiac dysfunction. The mechanisms of the activation of cardiac fibrosis is unclarified. In this study, we found that microRNA-23b (miR-23b) was up-regulated in heart tissue during cecal ligation and puncture (CLP)-induced sepsis and transfection of miR-23b inhibitor improved survival in late sepsis. Inhibition of miR-23b in the myocardium protected against cardiac output and enhanced left ventricular systolic function...

Sepsis-induced myocardial dysfunction represents a major cause of death in intensive care units. Alamandine is an important biologically active peptide in the renin-angiotensin system. The present study evaluated whether alamandine improves cardiac dysfunction, inflammation, and apoptosis, and affects the signaling pathways involved in these events. Experiments were carried out in mice treated with lipopolysaccharide (LPS) or alamandine, and in neonatal rat cardiomyocytes. Alamandine increased the ejection fraction and fractional shortening, both of which were decreased upon LPS infusion in mice...

Chronic ethanol (EtOH) consumption causes early detrimental consequences in many tissues including the myocardium, though the molecular mechanisms leading to the alcoholic cardiomyopathy (ACM) still remain to be elucidated. Here, we studied several biomolecular changes occurring in cardiomyoblasts after their exposure to sublethal concentrations of EtOH and the potential synergistic effect with methylmercury (MM) or doxorubicin (DOXO), which are known to produce direct myocardial dysfunction. In addition, the possible role of autophagic responses and Nuclear Factor kappa-B (NFkB) modulation in early post-alcoholic myocardial damage has been investigated...
