Over the past few decades, the use of endoscopic harvest of the saphenous vein has gained popularity due to a significant reduction in rates of wound infection and improved cosmesis. The widespread adoption of this technique has introduced a set of complications associated with the use CO2 insufflation which facilitates exposure during the vein harvest. We describe a case of pneumoperitoneum with systemic acidosis and subcutaneous air following endoscopic vein harvest for coronary artery bypass grafting and review the complications that may arise from CO2 insufflation during endoscopic vein harvesting...

Inflammation is pivotally involved in coronary and peripheral atherosclerotic disease. This established concept is based on both experimental animal models of vascular inflammation and Mendelian randomization studies demonstrating a causal relationship between pro-inflammatory cytokines (e.g. interleukin-6) and cardiovascular disease risk. More recently, the reduction of cardiovascular events by use of an interleukin-1β inhibitor (canakinumab) has revived interest in the use of anti-inflammatory agents for the treatment of atherosclerotic disease, including peripheral arterial disease...

BACKGROUND: Reverse cascade screening is not commonly employed to detect new cases of familial hypercholesterolemia (FH). We aimed to assess the outcome of this screening strategy in families in which the probands were children with severe FH. HYPOTHESIS: Reverse cascade screening is an effective method to detect new patients with FH. METHODS: Reverse cascade screening was undertaken starting from 47 index children with severe hypercholesterolemia; 39 were homozygous/compound heterozygous FH and 8 were heterozygous FH...

BACKGROUND: Post-operative atrial fibrillation (POAF) is the most common cardiac arrhythmia occurring after coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). Arrhythmia leads to prolonged hospitalization and may have impact on both short-term and long-term prognoses. AIM: The aim of this paper was the evaluation of the incidence of POAF in patients after CABG as well as the identification of its predictors. METHODS: The study was performed on 791 patients (selected from a group of 1031 patients who underwent CABG in the Clinical Department of Cardiology in years 2009-2011) who did not suffer from atrial fibrillation (AF) prior to isolated CABG...

BACKGROUND: Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) have been confirmed to be involved in the pathological processes of multiple diseases. However, the characteristic expression of lncRNAs in peripheral blood of coronary artery disease (CAD) patients and whether some of these lncRNAs can be used as diagnostic biomarkers for CAD requires further investigation. METHODS: 6 healthy and CAD individuals were selected for microarray analysis, and 5 differentially expressed lncRNAs were selected and confirmed in the second cohort consisting of 30 control individuals and 30 CAD patients with different SYNTAX scores...

BACKGROUND: The role of the adipokines in the pathogenesis of aortic stenosis (AS) is not well established. The aim was to evaluate the relationship between adipokines and clinical characteristics as well as echocardiographic indices and noninvasive markers of vascular remodeling in patients with severe AS with preserved ejection fraction (EF). METHODS: Sixty-five patients (F/M: 38/27; age: 68.3 ± 9.0 years; body mass index [BMI]: 29.6 ± 4.3 kg/m²) with severe AS with preserved EF: 33 patients with paradoxical low-flow low-gradient AS (PLFLG AS) and 32 patients with normal flow high-gradient AS (NFHG AS) were prospectively enrolled into the study...

BACKGROUND: Comorbidity is a cause of increased mortality, decreased quality of life and increased use of healthcare services. It is important particularly for physicians and other healthcare providers in primary care settings to evaluate these patients properly. Cardiovascular diseases (CVD) are the most common cause of death from non-communicable diseases worldwide and are characterized by a high level of comorbidities. OBJECTIVES: To address the distribution of CVDs and comorbidities across sociodemographic groups and associations between CVDs and comorbidities...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Unlike tobacco, the effect of marijuana smoke on subclinical atherosclerosis, a surrogate measure for cardiovascular disease, is not known. This study aimed to determine the association between lifetime exposure to marijuana and measures of subclinical atherosclerosis in mid-life. DESIGN, SETTING AND PARTICIPANTS: We used data from the US-based Coronary Artery Risk Development in Young Adults (CARDIA) Study, a cohort of black and white men and women aged 18-30 years at baseline in 1985-86, with up to 7 follow-up exams over 25 years...

PURPOSE: Sodium-glucose cotransporter-2 inhibitors (SGLT2i) comprise the newest class of oral hypoglycemic agents approved for treating type II diabetes mellitus (DM-II). Their use, however, has been associated with the rare development of euglycemic diabetic ketoacidosis (euDKA). We present three cases of euDKA that occurred following elective coronary artery bypass grafting surgery. The role of the anesthesiologist in the prevention, diagnosis, and management of this complication is also discussed...

The aim of this study is to investigate the cardioprotective effects of morroniside in rats following acute myocardial infarction. An acute myocardial infarction (AMI) was induced by ligating the anterior descending coronary artery (LAD) [1]. Following AMI, morroniside was administered intragastrically for 24 h at doses of 45, 90, and 180 mg/kg, respectively. Biomarkers such as creatine kinase (CK-MB), lactate dehydrogenase (LDH), ɑ-hydroxybutyrate dehydrogenase (ɑ-HBDH), and aspartate aminotransferase (AST) activities in AMI rats in the serum were detected with commercial kits [2]...

Background: This study aims to investigate the effect of natural sounds on the anxiety of patients undergoing coronary artery bypass graft surgery (CABG). Methods: In this clinical trial, 90 patients, who were candidates for CABG in an urban area of Iran, were selected and randomly assigned to intervention and control groups by the minimization method. In the intervention group, natural sounds were broadcast through headphones for 30 min. In the control group, headphones connected to a silent device were used...

A 5Fr ST01, which is a straight-tip guiding catheter with an inner lumen of 1.5 mm, is frequently used to perform the "child-in-mother" technique, which is also referred to as the "5-in-6" technique. A 6Fr or larger size guiding catheter can facilitate bioresorbable everolimus-eluting vascular scaffold (BVS) delivery. For tortuous lesions, the 5-in-6 technique can facilitate balloon catheters and the BVS in crossing tortuous lesions by increasing the back-up support. However, this maneuver couldn't be used for the larger size of BVS like 3...

Background: Available data on the use of the Bioresorbable vascular scaffold (BVS) (Abbott Vascular, Santa Clara, CA) in real-world patients is limited, particularly in Asian populations. The aim of this study was to assess clinical outcomes of patients treated with a BVS in real-world practice in Taiwan. Methods: This study focused on 156 patients with coronary artery disease and a total of 249 lesions who received BVS implantation from October 2012 to October 2015...

Background: Coronary artery perforation (CAP) during percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) is associated with increased mortality. Polytetrafluoroethylene covered stents (CS) are an effective approach to treat CAP, but data regarding elderly patients requiring CS implantation for CAP are limited. The aim of this study is to report clinical data for elderly CAP patients undergoing CS implantation during PCI. Methods: Nineteen consecutive elderly patients (≥ 65 years) undergoing CS implantation due to PCI-induced CAP in a tertiary referral center from July 2003 to April 2016 were retrospectively examined...

Objectives: To investigate whether the fragmented QRS (fQRS) complexes can be used to distinguish patients with early non-ST elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI) from those with unstable angina (UA). Background: fQRS complex has been found to be linked to myocardial infarction and cardiac death. Methods: The clinical data of 302 patients who had been diagnosed with coronary artery disease were retrospectively reviewed. Incidence of fQRS complex within 48 h of presentation was analyzed and patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI) (n = 240) were followed up by telephone interviews for a mean of 61...
