BACKGROUND: Sestrins (Sesns) family, which including three members Sesn1, Sesn2 and Sesn3, is known as stress-inducible proteins and participate in multiple diseases via regulating oxidative stress, inflammatory response and cell apoptosis. The present study aimed to investigate the plasma levels and the clinical significance of Sesns in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD). METHODS: In the case-control study, 119 CAD patients, including stable angina pectoris (SAP, n=44), unstable angina pectoris (UAP, n=41) and acute myocardial infarction (AMI, n=29) were included...

BACKGROUND: Some studies aimed to evaluate the relationship between HbA1c and coronary artery disease (CAD). However, it is well known that long-term glycometabolic disorders put the heart at risk for CAD. Considering the inconsistencies between previous studies, this study aimed to investigate the relationship between HbA1c and coronary artery atherosclerosis. METHODS: A cross-sectional study was conducted on 411 non-diabetic patients who underwent their first coronary angiography between November 2013 and December 2014 in Baqiyatallah Hospital...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: A greater inter-arm blood pressure difference (IABPD) is associated with atherosclerosis, but its association with coronary artery disease is unknown. We investigated the relationship between IABPD and coronary atherosclerosis. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed blood pressure (BP) data that was measured simultaneously in both arms of patients who underwent initial coronary angiography. Coronary atherosclerosis was assessed using the Gensini score, based on quantitative coronary angiography findings...

Fibrinogen (Fib) is a useful marker for predicting the severity of coronary artery disease (CAD) in adult population. However, whether Fib can be a predictor for the presence and severity of CAD in very young MI patients (≤35 years old) remains to be determined. A total of 418 males from 61,863 patients with MI who were under 35 years old were sequentially recruited in our study. The patients were divided into two main groups and three subgroups according to coronary angiograph and Gensini score (GS) system: no coronary artery stenosis (group A), the results of the coronary artery stenosis (group B); low GS, intermediate GS and high GS...

This study aimed to evaluate the association of bone metabolism markers with coronary atherosclerosis and coronary artery disease (CAD) in postmenopausal women. Based on the findings of coronary angiography, 111 women with CAD and 116 women without CAD were recruited. Serum calcium, phosphate, parathyroid hormone (PTH), 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25OHD), osteocalcin, N-terminal propeptide of type I procollagen (P1NP) and C-terminal cross-linked telopeptide of type I collagen (CTX) were measured. The Gensini score was used to assess the severity of coronary atherosclerosis...

This study investigated roles of serum ST2, IL-33 and BNP in predicting major adverse cardiovascular events (MACEs) in acute myocardial infarction (AMI) after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). Blood samples were collected from the included AMI patients (n = 180) who underwent PCI. All patients were divided into the MACEs and MACEs-free groups. Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay was performed to measure serum levels of ST2, IL-33 and BNP. Severity of coronary artery lesion was evaluated by Gensini score...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: The atheroprotective role of high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) levels in coronary artery disease (CAD) remains controversial. This study sought to reappraise the value of HDL-C in predicting the severity and outcomes of new-onset patients with stable CAD in Chinese populations. METHODS: A total of 4205 new-onset patients with stable CAD who received coronary angiography were enrolled to analyze the relation of HDL-C to coronary severity and major adverse cardiovascular events (MACEs)...

BACKGROUND: Little is known about the significance of severe coronary tortuosity (SCT) despite it being a relatively common finding on coronary angiography. We examined whether the presence of tortuosity was influenced by gender or cardiac risk factors. METHODS AND RESULTS: We examined 870 patients (Men = 589, Women = 281) who presented to Westmead Hospital, Sydney, Australia for invasive coronary angiography for the assessment of chest pain due to suspected CAD...

Syntax score (SS) and Gensini score (GS) are used to determine the complexity and severity of coronary artery disease. Although there are some studies indicating the individual relationship of these scoring systems with the carotid intima-media thickness (cIMT) and epicardial fat tissue (EFT), there was no previous study that compared the SS and GS in that respect. We aimed to assess the relationship of SS and GS with predictors of atherosclerosis. We enrolled 522 patients. There were positive correlations between GS and SS tertiles with cIMT and EFT...

Circulating microRNA (miR)-208a is specifically expressed in the heart muscle, which is involved in the regulation of myosin during cardiac development. Previous studies reported that cardiac-specific miR-208a level is significantly higher in plasma of coronary heart disease (CHD) patients. However, whether it correlates with severity of CHD, has never been elucidated before. The aim of this study was to explore the association between miR-208a and the presence and severity of CHD. Samples were collected from 290 CHD patients and 110 subjects with angiographic exclusion of CHD...

BACKGROUND: Few studies had examined the role of ABO blood groups on CAD in hypertensive patients with different blood pressure (BP) controls. METHODS: A total of 2708 patients with primary hypertension (HTN) were consecutively enrolled and underwent coronary angiography (CAG) due to angina-like chest pain. The severity of coronary artery stenosis was assessed by Gensini score (GS). Patients were divided into two groups due to results of CAG: HTN with CAD (n = 2185) and HTN without CAD (n = 523)...

BACKGROUND: We aimed to investigate whether the angiographic extent of coronary artery disease (CAD) differs in patients undergoing coronary angiography for stable CAD or acute coronary syndrome (ACS) and identify predictors of CAD extent in these patients. METHODS: We enrolled 584 consecutive patients (463 with stable CAD, 121 with ACS) with angiographically established CAD (≥1 stenosis >25%). The Gensini score was used to assess the extent of coronary atherosclerosis...

BACKGROUND: Cartilage oligomeric matrix protein (COMP) is mainly found in the skeletal system and vascular smooth muscle cells. Recent researches showed that it had a protective function on blood vessels and could also inhibit vascular calcification. We investigated the serum COMPs in coronary heart disease (CHD) patients, and the relationship between serum COMP and the calcification of coronary artery. METHODS: A total of 233 consecutive chest pain patients who first underwent coronary angiography followed by multi-slice computed tomography (MSCT) within six months were recruited and divided into two groups according to the coronary angiography luminal diameter narrowing percentages: CHD group (diameter narrowing ≥ 50%, n = 194) and control group (diameter narrowing < 50%, n = 39)...

AIMS: Tartrate-resistant acid phosphatase (TRACP)-5b and osteoprotegerin (OPG) are specific and sensitive markers of bone resorption in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and chronic kidney disease (CKD). The TRACP-5b level is associated with the severity of RA and CKD, while the OPG level is associated with the severity of coronary atherosclerosis and calcification, and can predict a poor outcome in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD). However, the impact of TRACP-5b on coronary atherosclerosis in CAD patients remains unclear...
