Whereas several in vitro and in vivo studies have described the role of lysosomal associated membrane protein 2 (LAMP2) in lipid homeostasis, there is no study addressing LAMP2 serum concentration and its association with lipid profiles in the context of coronary artery disease (CAD). We aimed to determine the LAMP2 serum concentration and its association with serum lipid profiles as well as the gene expression of LAMP2 in peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) of CAD patients and control group. Circulating levels of LAMP2 were quantified by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) in CAD patients (n=85) and control group (n=65) and correlation to lipid parameters was assessed...

BACKGROUND: Many disease entities, including coronary artery disease (CAD), demonstrate abnormalities in the activity of cholinesterases. As CAD is characterized by an increase in cholesterol level, patients with this disease are treated with lipid-lowering drugs. The present study attempts to determine how statin or combined statin and ezetimibe therapy influences cholinesterase activity. METHODS: Plasma and erythrocytes were isolated from the peripheral blood of CAD patients (n=61) and healthy subjects (n=63)...

BACKGROUND: Assessment of the femoral and iliac arteries is essential prior to transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR). It is critical for establishing candidacy for a femoral approach, and can help predict vascular complications. Although computed tomography angiography (CTA) is the standard imaging modality, it has limitations. OBJECTIVE: This study compared CTA with intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) in patients undergoing TAVR evaluation. METHODS: Fifteen patients undergoing pre-TAVR coronary angiography and hemodynamic assessment were recruited...

Álvaro Gudiño Gomezjurado
Cardiovascular diseases are one of the most important causes of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Several risk factors have been associated with the development of these pathologies. However, there is controversy about whether hyperuricemia is an independent risk factor for developing cardiovascular disease. To answer this question, we performed a recent literature review of relevant published material to assess the association of hyperuricemia with four major cardiovascular diseases: hypertension, coronary heart disease, heart failure and atrial fibrillation...

Oxidation of atherogenic low-density lipoproteins (LDL) plays a key role in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis. Oxidation stress and inflammation are closely interrelated and they can potentiate one another. In the subendothelial space of the arterial intima, monocytes/macrophages become activated and phagocyte oxidized LDL (oxLDL) via scavenger receptors. It has been demonstrated that oxLDL forms complex with plasma β2-glycoprotein I (β2GPI) and becomes autoantigenic triggering synthesis of specific antiphosholipid antibodies...

The important role of reperfusion therapies in the treatment of acute myocardial infarction is well documented. However, reperfusion therapies can initiate inflammatory response and may damage the myocardium. The purpose of current study was to compare the effects of percutaneous coronary intervention and thrombolytic therapy on inflammatory markers in the setting of ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). Eighty three patients with STEMI were enrolled in this study. 40 patients underwent percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), and 43 patients received streptokinase (1...

BACKGROUND: Extended Whipple procedures may require division of the splenic vein (SV). Controversy exists regarding the risk of sequelae of sinistral portal hypertension when the SV is ligated without reimplantation. The aim of this study was to identify postoperative venous collateral patterns and sequelae of SV ligation, as well as long-term results in an extended Whipple procedure. STUDY DESIGN: Patients who had an extended Whipple procedure (Whipple at the Splenic Artery or WATSA) were entered in an institutional database...

BACKGROUND: Non-cardiac chest pain is very common and gastroenterological diseases are one of the most important causes. The frequency distribution of the underlying causes depends on the sector of the healthcare system in which it is ascertained. In individual cases it must always be taken into consideration that detection of coronary heart disease, for example, does not exclude another origin of chest pain. OBJECTIVE: This article provides a systematic review of gastroenterological diseases that can cause chest pain...

BACKGROUND: Age remains a significant and unmodifiable risk factor for cardiovascular diseases, and an increasing number of patients older than 80 years of age undergo Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting (CABG). Old age is also an independent risk factor for postoperative complications. The aim of this study is to describe the population of patients 80 years of age or older who underwent CABG procedure and to assess the mortality rate and risk factors for in-hospital mortality. METHODS: A retrospective case-series study analyzing 388 consecutive patients aged 80 years of age or older who underwent isolated CABG procedure between 2010 and 2014 in the Department of Cardiovascular Surgery and Transplantology, John Paul II Hospital, Krakow...

Patients undergoing percutaneous lung biopsy are at risk of developing a systemic air embolism. Air embolism may manifest as a catastrophic iatrogenic event with ischemic insult to the end organs, with sites of least resistance such as coronary and cerebral circulation the most susceptible. We review the available literature and present a case of iatrogenic air embolism during computed tomography guided percutaenous lung biopsy under general anesthesia. Management, outcome, and periprocedural factors that may have contributed to the complication are discussed...

BACKGROUND: The direction of impulse propagation across the coronary sinus (CS) musculature (CSM) is an important piece of the mechanistic puzzle underlying atrial tachyarrhythmias. We hypothesized that in the general population, the sequence of left atrial (LA) to CSM electrograms recorded in the CS reflects the direction of impulse propagation over the CSM. METHODS: We studied 19 patients with atrioventricular (AV) reentrant tachycardia (RT) utilizing a left-sided accessory pathway (AP) and 21 patients with typical counterclockwise atrial flutter (AFL)...
