Cardiac autonomic neuropathy (CAN) is a serious complication of diabetes mellitus (DM) that is strongly associated with approximately five-fold increased risk of cardiovascular mortality. CAN manifests in a spectrum of things, ranging from resting tachycardia and fixed heart rate (HR) to development of "silent" myocardial infarction. Clinical correlates or risk markers for CAN are age, DM duration, glycemic control, hypertension, and dyslipidemia (DLP), development of other microvascular complications...

The benefits of physical exercise on health and well-being have been studied in a wide range of systemic and ocular diseases, including glaucoma, a progressive optic neuropathy characterized by accelerated apoptosis of retinal ganglion cells (RGCs). Elevated intraocular pressure (IOP) and insufficient ocular perfusion have been postulated to be the two main theories in glaucoma development and progression. The effects of exercise in these two aspects have been demonstrated by numerous researches. A review in 2009 focusing on these two theories concluded that exercise results in transient IOP reduction but an inconsistent elevation in ocular perfusion...

Purpose: To model the sensitivity of the optic nerve head (ONH) biomechanical environment to acute variations in IOP, cerebrospinal fluid pressure (CSFP), and central retinal artery blood pressure (BP). Methods: We extended a previously published numerical model of the ONH to include 24 factors representing tissue anatomy and mechanical properties, all three pressures, and constraints on the optic nerve (CON). A total of 8340 models were studied to predict factor influences on 98 responses in a two-step process: a fractional factorial screening analysis to identify the 16 most influential factors, followed by a response surface methodology to predict factor effects in detail...

OBJECTIVES: It can be difficult to differentiate multiple system atrophy (MSA) with predominant parkinsonism (MSA-P), a very disabling but rare disease, from Parkinson's disease (PD). Autonomic dysfunction, particularly cardiovascular autonomic neuropathy (CAN), is classically more pronounced in MSA. We investigated whether testing for CAN combined with sweat function assessment was helpful to differentiate patients with MSA from those with PD. METHODS: In this retrospective study, 62 patients with MSA-P and 96 with PD, comparable in age, BMI and sex ratio with disease duration of 4...

Glaucoma, the second leading cause of blindness worldwide, is a chronic optic neuropathy characterized by progressive retinal ganglion cell (RGC) axons degeneration and death. The pathogenesis of primary open-angle glaucoma (OAG), the most common type, is still largely unknown and it is often associated with increased intraocular pressure (IOP) although IOP-independent mechanisms play also a role. Neurodegenerative process, including oxidative stress, excitotoxicity and neuroinflammation, and an impaired ocular blood flow are examples of mechanisms supposed to contribute to the IOP independent deterioration in OAG...

PURPOSE: Several ischemic optic neuropathies that occurred during robotic-assisted laparoscopic radical prostatectomy (RALRP) have been reported to be due to the Trendelenburg position, which lowers ocular perfusion pressure (OPP). We examined changes in pulsatile ocular blood flow (POBF) and its correlation with OPP during RALRP in the steep Trendelenburg position. METHODS: Pulsatile ocular blood flow and intraocular pressure (IOP) were measured in 50 patients by the OBF Langham System 5 times during RALRP...

AIMS: Cardiac autonomic neuropathy (CAN) is a frequent and severe complication of type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM). CAN diagnosis is associated with increased cardiovascular morbidity and mortality, often due to progressive atherosclerosis. Carotid intima media thickness (CIMT) is a surrogate marker of the atherosclerosis. The aim of our study was to evaluate the relationship between CIMT and CAN in T1DM patients. METHODS: Total of 49 T1DM patients and 45 healthy controls were examined for CAN presence and CIMT...

The impact of exercise interventions on south Asians with type 2 diabetes (T2DM), who have a higher T2DM incidence rate compared to other ethnic groups, is inconclusive. This study aimed to systematically review the effect of exercise interventions in south Asians with T2DM. Five electronic databases were searched up to April 2017 for controlled trials investigating the impact of exercise interventions on south Asian adults with T2DM. The PEDro scale was used to assess the quality of the included studies. Eighteen trials examining the effect of aerobic, resistance, balance or combined exercise programs met the eligibility criteria...
