nn J Abstract Because of new surgical techniques, advanced monitoring modalities and improvements in perioperative care, perioperative mortality and morbidity have been significantly reduced in the last decades; however, patients still suffer from high perioperative mortality and morbidity, especially those with pre-existing cardiovascular diseases. Not only perioperative myocardial infarction but also myocardial injury after non-cardiac surgery, which presents without clinical symptoms, is associated with an adverse outcome. Patients at risk require particular interdisciplinary attention throughout the perioperat...

ConclusionAs a novel inflammation-based risk score, the CRP/albumin ratio may be an easily accessible marker for assessment of stent restenosis risk.ResumoObjetivoA reestenose de stent permanece como um desafio clínico em doentes com cardiopatia isquémica. A reestenose de stent está associada a intervenções coronárias recorrentes bem como a aumento de internamentos e de custos médicos. A inflamação tem um papel significativo. Embora a associação entre reestenose de stent e o aumento dos níveis de proteína C-reativa (PCR) e a diminui&...

Purpose of review A number of cohorts and clinical trials have reported observing associations between intraindividual variation of biomarkers and manifestations of cardiovascular disease (CVD). Recent findings Intraindividual (or ‘visit-to-visit’) variability of total cholesterol (TC), low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C), apolipoprotein B, high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C), non-HDL-C, and triglyceride have all been found to associate with CVD outcomes, independent of their mean absolute levels, independent of each other, and independent of other traditional risk factors. These findings ...

Looking for clues about the health of your brain? You might want to pay a visit to your eye doctor. Research increasingly links common eye conditions — glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy — to risk for Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. What’s interesting about the study results, says Dr. Albert Hofman, chair of epidemiology at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, is that cataracts, another common age-related eye condition, had no apparent connection to dementia risk. This gives scientists an important clue about the cause of dementia and Alzheimer&rs...

(CNN) — The red meat or white meat debate is a draw: Eating white meat, such as poultry, will have an identical effect on your cholesterol level as eating red beef, new research indicates. The long-held belief that eating white meat is less harmful for your heart may still hold true, because there may be other effects from eating red meat that contribute to cardiovascular disease, said the University of California, San Francisco researchers. This needs to be explored in more detail, they added. Non-meat proteins such as vegetables, dairy, and legumes, including beans, show the best cholesterol benefit, according to t...

Authors: Santoso A, Heriansyah T, Rochman S Abstract Lipoprotein-associated phospholipase A 2 (Lp-PLA 2 ) is an enzyme family of phospholipase A 2 produced by the inflammatory cell in atherosclerotic plaque. It is transported in the circulation, attached mainly to low-density lipoprotein-cholesterol (LDL-C). It hydrolyzes glycerophospholipids particularly fatty acids at the sn-2 position and produces numerous bioactive lipids; and leads to endothelial dysfunction, atherosclerotic plaque inflammation, and development of the necrotic core in plaques. There are two kinds of phospholipase A 2 , namely: secretory phosph...
