Curr Cardiol Rev. 2021 Nov 24. doi: 10.2174/1573403X17666211125090929. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTDespite advances in early reperfusion and a technologic renaissance in the space of mechanical circulatory support (MCS), cardiogenic shock (CS) remains the leading cause of in-hospital mortality following acute myocardial infarction (AMI). Given the challenges inherent to conducting adequately powered randomized controlled trials in this time-sensitive, hemodynamically complex, and highly lethal syndrome, treatment recommendations have been derived from AMI patient without shock. In this review, we aimed to (1) examine the...

Int Angiol. 2021 Nov 26. doi: 10.23736/S0392-9590.21.04771-4. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTBACKGROUND: The death due to stroke is caused by embolism of the arteries which is due to the rupture of the atherosclerotic lesions in carotid arteries. The lesion formation is over time, and thus, early screening is recommended for asymptomatic and moderate-risk patients. The previous techniques adopted conventional methods or semi-automated and, more recently, machine learning solutions. A handful of studies have emerged based on solo deep learning (SDL) models such as UNet architecture.METHODS: The proposed research is the first...

Sepsis’ pathogenesis involves multiple mechanisms that lead to a dysregulation of the host's response. Significant efforts have been made in search of interventions that can reverse this situation and increase patient survival. Poly (ADP-polymerase) (PARP) is a constitutive nuclear and mitochondrial enzyme, which functions as a co-activator and co-repressor of gene transcription, thus regulating the production of inflammatory mediators. Several studies have already demonstrated an overactivation of PARP1 in various human pathophysiological conditions and that its inhibition has benefits in regulating intracellular pr...
