BACKGROUND/AIMS: Subclinical hypothyroidism (SCH) plays a crucial role in the development and progression of coronary heart disease (CHD). However, any associated changes in the circulating microRNAs (miRNAs) levels and slightly elevated thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) levels in CHD patients are unknown. miR-146a is a well known miRNA associated with inflammatory autoimmune diseases. Here, we evaluated miR-146a expression in patients, with the goal of re-evaluating the effect of SCH on CHD...

INTRODUCTION: Thyroid hormone exerts multiple effects on the heart and vascular system. Variations of free T3 have been linked to coronary artery disease. We conducted a study to observe whether there is a relationship between the variation of the serum thyroid hormone levels (TSH, FT3 and FT4) and the presence and severity of CAD in the euthyroid patients. AIM: To study association of serum TSH, FT4 and FT3 levels within the normal range with presence and severity of coronary artery disease...

BACKGROUND: Abnormal thyroid hormone metabolism influences the occurrence and progress of coronary heart disease (CHD). The aim of the present study was to analyze the severity of coronary artery lesions and the prognosis of thyroid dysfunction patients admitted for coronary angiography (CAG). METHODS: From July 2011 to July 2012, 605 consecutive patients with suspected coronary heart disease admitted for CAG were selected. The patients were divided into three groups, based on their thyroid function prior to CAG: euthyroid group (n=455 patients), low T3 syndrome group (n=96 patients), and hypothyroidism group (n=54 patients)...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study is to investigate the relationship between serum thyroid hormone levels that are within the normal range and the presence and severity of coronary artery disease (CAD) in patients referred for coronary angiography. METHODS: In this observational study, we enrolled 119 consecutive patients (77 men, mean age 60.7±13.8 years) who underwent coronary angiography. Blood samples were tested for thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH), free triiodothyronine (FT3) and free thyroxine (FT4) concentrations...

BACKGROUND: In the previous recent reports, subclinical hypothyroidism is an independent risk factor for acute myocardial infarction in elderly women. It was not established whether a normal range of thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) influences the presence of coronary atherosclerosis. We postulated that the level of TSH is risk factor of coronary atherosclerosis in angina patients who have normal thyroid function. METHODS: We studied 344 angina patients (62.5+/-9...
