AIM: Takotsubo cardiomyopathy is a cardiac syndrome characterized by reversible left ventricular dysfunction, ischemic changes on electrocardiogram, elevation of cardiac biomarkers, absence of obstructive coronary artery disease in the setting of various stressing conditions. To date, little is known on best clinical management of this syndrome in coronary care units. Whe thus aimed to present our experience in a real life takotsubo population. METHODS: We identified all patients with Takotsubo cardiomyopathy at our center Maria Vittoria Hospital, Turin, between October 2006 and February 2012...

Ischemic heart disease, even if it has an incidence rate that increases with increasing age, can affect young people of working age. Remarkable progress in the treatment of acute coronary syndrome (ACS) and its complications, while it reduced the mortality due to myocardial infarction in both acute and later stages, on the other hand have contributed to increase prevalence, in people of working age, of ischemic heart disease and chronic conditions of post-ischemic left ventricular dysfunction in the outcomes of previous acute ischemic event...

INTRODUCTION: The accumulation of macrophages what happens in atherosclerotic process is associated with increased concentration of fibrinogen and CRP (C-reactive protein), and these two markers of inflammation are considered early signs of atherosclerosis. AIM: The aim of the study was to compare levels of inflammatory markers (CRP and fibrinogen) and HbAlc as a parameter of quarterly blood glucose control in patients with both diabetes mellitus type 1 and hypothyroidism who have ischemic heart disease with the patients with same autoimmune diseases, but without ischemic heart disease...

OBJECTIVES: First trimester bleeding without miscarriage is a risk factor for complications later in the pregnancy, such as preterm delivery. Also, first trimester miscarriage has been linked to subsequent maternal ischemic heart disease. We investigated the link between maternal cardiovascular disease prior to and subsequent to first trimester bleeding without miscarriage. STUDY DESIGN: We performed a registry-based retrospective cohort study of 796,915 women who gave birth to a singleton infant after 20 completed weeks in Denmark in 1978-2007...

INTRODUCTION: The cardiovascular response to decreased or increased preload in high-risk patients with ischemic heart disease enables us to understand the physiologic response to hemorrhage and its treatment. Although numerous studies have failed to show its effectiveness, the head-down position is still widely used to treat patients with hypotension and shock. The aim of our study was to evaluate the influence of body position on hemodynamics in high-risk patients undergoing coronary artery bypass graft surgery...

Endocrine impairment is more common in patients with diabetes than in general population. Both hyper- and hypothyroidism increases cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. Subclinical hypothyroidism is a risk factor for coronary hearth disease in patients younger than 65 years. In elderly is its influence questionable or even preventive and the benefit of substitution should be weighted against the risks. Treatment with glucocorticoids in a dose of 7.5 mg methylprednisolone and higher considerably increases risk of vascular impairment...

The association between exposure to urban air pollution and cardiac or respiratory impairments in susceptible subjects was evaluated in a panel study including 11 patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), 7 with ischemic heart disease (IHD), and 11 asthmatics resident in Rome (Italy). Patients underwent repeated 24 h Holter EKG monitoring, 12 h pulse oximetry at night and spirometry examinations during 1999 summer and winter. Multiple linear regression models for repeated individual measures (fixed-effect) were used to analyse the relationship between average daily concentrations of pollutants (PM10-2...

BACKGROUND: A vast consensus exists in defining a narrow range of recommended daily doses of aspirin, ie, 75 to 160 mg, for the prevention of myocardial infarction, stroke, and vascular death in patients with different manifestations of coronary hearth disease. In contrast, for patients with cerebrovascular disease, a much larger degree of uncertainty still exists, with recommendations ranging from 30 to 1300 mg daily. SUMMARY OF COMMENT: The contention that higher doses of aspirin (650 to 1300 mg) are more effective than lower doses in stroke prevention is based on indirect and selective comparisons of different trial data, mini-meta-analyses, or subgroup analyses of individual trials...

Aim of this study was to analyze the cardiovascular response to graded physical exercise in patients who have undergone cardiac transplantation and to assess the ability of exercise stress testing in early detection of coronary artery disease. We studied 114 transplanted subjects (100 men and 14 women, mean age 46.6 +/- 11.3 years), who performed exercise stress testing 6 months after bypass and then every 6 (+/- 1) months during a 5-year follow-up. Variations of hearth rate (HR), systolic blood pressure (SBP), heart rate-pressure product (RPP) values and exercise stress tolerance were studied both in basal and maximum workload conditions...

Three MMPI variables--HsK + Hy, neuroticism, and somatic complaints--were positively associated with incidence of uncomplicated angina pectoris and not significantly associated with incidence of myocardial infarction and coronary death in a 10-year cohort study of 2003 employed middle-aged men. All three were negatively associated with risk of coronary death after the diagnosis of uncomplicated angina had been established. These results support the hypothesis that tendencies to report somatic complaints or to experience negative, distressing emotions chronically are not related to incidence of coronary heart disease but are associated with incidence of a relative benign, nonatherosclerotic condition that is similar clinically to angina pectoris...
