Cardiac sympatho-vagal balance and ventricular arrhythmia.

Cardiac sympatho-vagal balance and ventricular arrhythmia. Auton Neurosci. 2016 Aug 26; Authors: Kalla M, Herring N, Paterson DJ Abstract A hallmark of cardiovascular disease is cardiac autonomic dysregulation. The phenotype of impaired parasympathetic responsiveness and sympathetic hyperactivity in experimental animal models is also well documented in large scale human studies in the setting of heart failure and myocardial infarction, and is predictive of morbidity and mortality. Despite advances in emergency revascularisation strategies for myocardial infarction, device therapy for heart failure and secondary prevention pharmacotherapies, mortality from malignant ventricular arrhythmia remains high. Patients at highest risk or those with haemodynamically significant ventricular arrhythmia can be treated with catheter ablation and implantable cardioverter defibrillators, but the morbidity and reduction in quality of life due to the burden of ventricular arrhythmia and shock therapy persists. Therefore, future therapies must aim to target the underlying pathophysiology that contributes to the generation of ventricular arrhythmia. This review explores recent advances in mechanistic research in both limbs of the autonomic nervous system and potential avenues for translation into clinical therapy. In addition, we also discuss the relationship of these findings in the context of the reported efficacy of current neuromodulatory strategies in the management of...

Authors: Corrà U, Piepoli M, Giordano A Abstract Exercise oscillatory ventilation (EOV) is an ominous sign in heart failure due to reduced left ventricular ejection fraction (HFrEF) whatever it is represented. But EOV is detected also in normal healthy individuals and in other cardiovascular disease (CVD) patients, however, its prevalence in these is not completed clear. The aim was to describe the occurrence of EOV in healthy subjects and the overall population all CVD patients who performing symptom limited cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPET). Healthy subjects were divided in athletes and normal subjec...

Authors: Chalikias G, Kikas P, Thomaidis A, Rigopoulos P, Pistola A, Lantzouraki A, Zisimopoulos A, Tziakas D Abstract We assessed the effect of Sacubitril/Valsartan on circulating catecholamine levels in patients with HF in an observational cohort study. We included 108 consecutive HF patients attending our HF Outpatients Clinic who were eligible to Sacubitril/Valsartan according to the PARADIGM-HF inclusion and exclusion criteria. We furthermore included 58 stable HF patients under optimal medical therapy as a control group. Norepinephrine and epinephrine were measured with immunoradiometric assays at baseline, a...

CONCLUSION: En bloc transurethral resection using 980 nm laser is an effective and safe treatment option for non-muscle-invasive bladder cancer. Compared to the traditional TUR-Bt procedure, the procedure using 980 nm laser has fewer perioperative complications and similar oncological results.

Conclusion: Here, we reveal several Nrf2 dose-responsive miRNA loci harboring putative upstream antioxidant response elements (AREs). Intriguingly, Nrf2-mediated miRNA responses were distinctly enriched for post-transcriptional regulation of cardiac-specific mRNAs. Altogether, these data reveal Nrf2 as a potent regulator of cardiac miRNA expression and provide novel candidates for future mechanistic investigation into the relationship between myocardial redox status and pathophysiology.
