This study examined the association between breakfast frequency and the 10-year risk of atherosclerotic CVD (ASCVD). The 10-year risk of ASCVD was defined as the risk of the first event of nonfatal myocardial infarction, coronary heart disease death, and nonfatal or fatal stroke within 10 years. Data from the Korean National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, 2014–2016 were analyzed, and 7212 participants aged 40–79 years with no history of CVD were included. ASCVD risk was calculated according to the pooled cohort ASCVD equation, and participants with a score >7.5% were considered at high ...

Authors: Zhang MM, Zhang CG, Yang CJ, Zhao P, Li YL Abstract OBJECTIVE: Although numerous studies have evaluated the association between lipoprotein associated phospholipase A2 (Lp-PLA2) gene polymorphisms and coronary heart disease, the conclusions are still inconsistency. Here we detected the correlation between D166E polymorphism of Lp-PLA2 and myocardial infarction (MI). Further, its clinical value as biomarker was assessed. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A total of 297 patients were enrolled, all diagnosed as MI at the Hebei General Hospital between May 2017 and May 2018, with 262 healthy subjects recruited as cont...

ConclusionsOur findings showed that higher dietary vitamin K consumption was associated with a moderately lower risk of CHD, and higher plasma dp-ucMGP concentration, but not total circulating osteocalcin, was associated with increased risks of all-cause and CVD mortality. However, causal relations cannot be established because of limited number of available studies, and larger prospective studies and randomized clinical trials are needed to validate the findings.

This study determine the relative treatment effects of NST on fatal and nonfatal CV events among statin-treated patients. Methods A network meta-analysis based on a systematic review of randomized controlled trials (RCTs) comparing non-statin lipid-modifying agents among statin-treated patients was performed. PubMed, EMBASE, CENTRAL, and Clinicaltrial.gov were searched up to April 10, 2018. The primary outcomes were CV and all-cause mortalities. Secondary CV outcomes were coronary heart disease (CHD) death, non-fatal myocardial infarction (MI), any stroke, and coronary revascularization. Risks of discontinuations were ...

HEART ATTACK symptoms vary from person to person. The condition occurs when there is a sudden loss of blood flow to a part of the heart muscle. Most heart attacks are caused by a coronary heart disease. So what are the symptoms?

Abstract Stress echocardiography (stress echo) is a method in which various stimuli are used to elicit myocardial contractility or provoke cardiac ischemia with simultaneous echocardiographic image acquisition of left ventricular function and valvular flow, if needed. The technique is a well-recognized, safe and widely available stress test used for the diagnosis and assessment of prognosis in coronary heart disease, but may also prove valuable in valvular heart disease. The stressors used include physical exercise, pharmacological agents (dobutamine, vasodilators) and pacing stress, most often with the use of a p...

CONCLUSIONS: The absolute counts of classical monocytes divided in tertiles are predictive for major adverse cardiac events in patients with CAD. A tremendous shift from classical to intermediate monocytes was also confirmed in CAD patients. These data highlight the importance of CD14++ monocytes in cardiovascular diseases.

ConclusionSerum ADMA level may be a potential biomarker of “toxin syndrome” in CHD which shows favorable prognostic value in predicting 1-year RCE in patients with stable CHD. [The registration number is ChiCTR-PRNRC-07000012]
