Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic inflammatory disease associated with high risk of cardiovascular events. Among main causes of death in RA are: myocardial infarction, cerebrovascular accident, sudden cardiac death, which are determined by the early development and rapid progression of atherosclerotic vascular lesions. According to studies high risk of cardiovascular events is not explained by only classical risk factors. It is assumed that there are additional mechanisms of development of adverse outcomes such as systemic inflammation, increased arterial stiffness, and endothelial dysfunction...

BACKGROUND: Both metformin and sulfonylurea (SU) drugs are among the most widely-used anti-hyperglycemic medications in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). Previous studies have shown that treatment with SUs might be associated with decreased survival compared with metformin. This study aimed to evaluate all-cause and cardiovascular mortality rates between glyburide and metformin in patients diagnosed with T2DM. METHODS: This was a cohort study on 717 patients with T2DM (271 undergoing monotherapy with glyburide and 446 with metformin)...

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a highly prevalent condition affecting persons of all age with an increasing public health burden. It is implicated in cardiovascular disease, metabolic syndrome, neurocognitive impairment, reductions in quality of life, and increased motor vehicle accidents. The goals of OSA treatment are to improve sleep and daytime symptoms, and minimize cardiovascular risks. Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) is considered the gold standard therapy that delivers pressurized air into the upper airway to relieve obstruction during sleep...

BACKGROUND: Despite frequent life-long hemodynamic and electrophysiologic abnormalities, adults with congenital heart defects (CHDs) are often lost to medical follow-up. Using a cohort of adults with CHD receiving hospital care in Arkansas, we sought to determine how often a CHD is recognized and coded during hospital admissions. METHODS: Data for this study come from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality's Arkansas State Inpatient Database (SID) for years 2004 to 2012...

REVIEW
R Oprita, B Oprita, B Diaconescu, M R Bratu, D Berceanu
Anticoagulants are frequently used medications in diverse cardiovascular diseases. Their uses highly increase the risk of bleeding from upper and lower gastrointestinal sources, whether there is a classic vitamin K antagonist or a novel oral anticoagulant. Their interruption can promote procoagulation status with different thromboembolic accidents. Discontinuation of oral anticoagulants before the elective procedures is standardized but there are no guidelines for managing bleeding lesions of upper gastrointestinal tract concomitant with anticoagulation...

 In November 2013, the Japanese Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare issued a directive that required the revision of the package inserts of 13 substances whose consumption carries risks associated with driving and the operation of machinery due to their side effects, such as dizziness. Medical personnel are required to remind patients taking these drugs about the risks, but the abovementioned directive did not apply to any antidiabetic drugs at that point. In January 2014, it was decided that patients should "pay attention while driving and at the workplace" when taking any antidiabetic drugs...

There is limited evidence to support decision-making regarding discharge antiplatelet therapy after transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI). The aim of this study was to assess the outcome of patients discharged on single-antiplatelet therapy (SAPT) or dual-antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) after TAVI. Consecutive patients were identified by retrospective review of a dedicated TAVI database of a single high-volume center in Milan, Italy, from January 2009 to May 2015. Our primary end point was the rate of net adverse clinical events defined as a composite of all-cause mortality, major bleeding requiring hospitalization, cerebrovascular accidents, redo-TAVI or surgical aortic valve replacement, and valve thrombosis...

Primary hyperaldosteronism often results in resistant hypertension and hypokalemia, which may lead to cardiovascular and cerebrovascular complications. Although surgery is first line treatment for unilateral functioning aldosteronomas, minimally invasive therapies may be first line for certain patients such as those who cannot tolerate surgery. We present a case of transarterial embolization (TAE) of an aldosteronoma. The patient presented with a cerebrovascular accident, and subsequently developed uncontrolled hypertension, hypokalemia, and a myocardial infarction...

BACKGROUND: Urinary stone disease (USD) is increasing in adult and pediatric populations Adult and pediatric studies have demonstrated decreased bone mineral density and increased fracture rates. USD has also been independently linked to increased rates of myocardial infarction and cerebral vascular accidents. Although USD is a multisystem disorder involving the kidneys, bone and vasculature, the molecular mechanisms linking these three organs remain unknown. METHODS: Calcium oxalate nephropathy was induced in C57BL/6J mice with intra-peritoneal (ip) injection of sodium glyoxolate...

OBJECTIVE: Antiphospholipid antibody syndrome (APS) is one of the most common acquired thrombophilic disorders resulting in arterial and venous thromboses. APS is a major cause for cerebrovascular accidents or stokes, myocardial infarction, venous thromboembolism and recurrent abortions/pregnancy losses especially in young patients. APS patients have an increased risk of atherosclerotic cardiovascular events. There are only two studies on lipid abnormalities in APS patients. None of them have studied the relationship between individual laboratory tests for APS and lipid profile abnormalities...

CONTEXT: Cerebrovascular and cardiovascular accidents have been associated with illicit drug use. The most commonly used substance worldwide is cannabis. It has been related to acute ischemic cerebral stroke in multiple reports, with different mechanisms suggested. FINDINGS: This is a case of Acute Spinal Cord Ischemia Syndrome (ASCIS) in a 25-year-old male who presented 20 minutes after smoking cannabis. Although a direct causal relationship between cannabis and cerebrovascular accidents is difficult to establish, there might be an association...

BACKGROUND: Perioperative use of angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs) and angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors (ACEis) in patients undergoing cardiac operations remains controversial. The current practice of discontinuing renin-angiotensin-system inhibitors preoperatively may negate their beneficial effects in vulnerable populations, including patients with metabolic syndrome, who exhibit elevated renin-angiotensin system activity. We hypothesized that preoperative ARB use is associated with reduced incidence of postoperative complications, compared with ACEi or no drug, in patients with metabolic syndrome undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting...

The rate of traffic accidents due to medical causes is unknown. Based on data from Canada and the United States, cardiovascular conditions account for less than 5% of commercial vehicle accidents. European data shows that about 0.1% of reportable road accidents maybe attributed to medical conditions, of which 10-25% is due to cardiac events. Driving guidelines and regulations in cardiovascular diseases are of importance, not only for protecting the health of the patients but also for protection of the community...
