Coronary intervention. Heart failure. Dyslipidaemia

Niki Katsiki, Nikolaos Tentolouris, Dimitri P Mikhailidis
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is associated with increased coronary heart disease (CHD) morbidity and mortality. These patients are also more prone to heart failure, arrhythmias and sudden cardiac death. Furthermore, coronary interventions performed in such high-risk patients have worse outcomes. In this narrative review, we discuss the role of diabetic dyslipidaemia on the risk of CHD in patients with T2DM. The effects of hypolipidaemic, antihypertensive and antidiabetic drugs on lipid and glucose metabolism in T2DM are also considered...

Increasing numbers of older patients with type 2 diabetes, and their improved survival from cardiovascular events is seeing a massive increase in patients with both diabetes and heart failure. Already, at least a third of all patients with heart failure have diabetes. This close association is partly because all the major risk factors for heart failure also cluster in patients with type 2 diabetes, including obesity, hypertension, advanced age, sleep apnoea, dyslipidaemia, anaemia, chronic kidney disease, and coronary heart disease...

BACKGROUND: A 73-year-old man was admitted to our Institute for repeated episodes of congestive heart failure. The patient was affected by arterial hypertension, dyslipidaemia, severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and recurrent atrial fibrillation. Two months earlier he had undergone aortic valve replacement with a biological prosthesis for severe stenosis. Echocardiography showed a left-to-right shunt localised in the left ventricular outflow tract, normal morphology and function of the aortic valve prosthesis, and a hyperkinetic left ventricle...

OBJECTIVES: To review studies on the cost consequences of compliance and/or persistence in cardiovascular disease (CVD) and related conditions (hypertension, dyslipidaemia, diabetes and heart failure) published since 1995, and to evaluate the effects of noncompliance on healthcare expenditure and the cost-effectiveness of pharmaceutical interventions. METHODS: English language papers published between January 1995 and February 2007 that examined compliance/persistence with medication for CVD or related conditions, provided an economic evaluation of pharmacological interventions or cost analysis, and quantified the cost consequences of noncompliance, were identified through database searches...

Dysfunction of the vascular endothelium is a hallmark of most conditions that are associated with atherosclerosis and is therefore held to be an early feature in atherogenesis. However, the mechanisms by which endothelial dysfunction occurs in smoking, dyslipidaemia, hyperhomocysteinaemia, diabetes mellitus, arterial hypertension, cerebrovascular diseases, coronary artery disease and heart failure are complex and heterogeneous. Recent data indicate that endothelial dysfunction is often associated with erectile dysfunction, which can precede and predict cardiovascular disease in men...

Diabetes mellitus is a growing health problem in the Asia-Pacific region. The acute and chronic complications of diabetes mellitus are major causes of hospital admissions, blindness, renal failure, amputations, stroke, and coronary heart disease in this region. Compared with the general population, the annual per capita health care expenditure is estimated to be four-fold for people with diabetes. Recent prospective studies have provided unequivocal evidence for the crucial role of prolonged hyperglycaemia in the development of chronic diabetic complications...
