Abstract Arteriovenous fistula due to coronary angiography intervention is rarely seen. Arteriovenous fistulas may be asymptomatic according to the size of the shunt, as well as to the heart failure. In this case report, we aimed to share gradual transition from endovascular methods to surgery and why surgical treatment is required for a patient who developed arteriovenous fistula after coronary angiography.

Abstract This paper presents a case study of a 30-year-old male patient with dyspnea on exertion had echocardiographic diagnosis of aortic subvalvar stenosis. Discrete mitral regurgitation and aortic valve dysplasia with mild to moderate insufficiency and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy were also noted. During surgery, a rare condition was identified: presence of papillary muscle anomaly associated with the subaortic membrane as a cause of obstruction of the left ventricular outflow tract. With the resection of these structures and a mitral valve annuloplasty, the patient evolved with a significant improvement of clinical cond...

Contributor : Xudong ZhangSeries Type : Non-coding RNA profiling by arrayOrganism : Homo sapiensThere are a lot of non-coding RNAs in human plasma. Some of them could be a biomarker of diseases.We used microarrys to detect lncRNAs in plasma of 10 control subjects and 10 heart failure (HF) patients diagnosed with dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) and we identified distinct classes of dysregulated lncRNAs.

Heart failure (HF) is a worldwide health problem, with an estimated 37.7 million people affected in 2010 [1]. HF carries a heavy burden on both patients and health systems due to high mortality rates and frequent hospitalisations [2,3]. HF is associated with substantial in-hospital and post-discharge mortality, as well as high rates of readmission [4]. In a recent systematic review on HF in Australia [5], 1-year mortality rate was 25% and 1-year readmission rate was 56%. Therefore, identifying a risk model could be a useful tool to target this high-risk population.

AbstractBlood pressure (BP) is a complex trait that is regulated by multiple physiological pathways and include but is not limited to extracellular fluid volume homeostasis, cardiac contractility, and vascular tone through renal, neural, or endocrine systems. Uncontrolled hypertension (HTN) has been associated with an increased mortality risk. Therefore, understanding the genetics that underpins and influence BP regulation will have a major impact on public health. Moreover, uncontrolled HTN has been linked to inter-individual variation in the drugs ’ response and this has been associated with an individual’s g...
