Authors: Nicholson P, Lenck S, Kucharczyk W, Mendes-Pereira V Abstract There is increasing interest in venous sinus stenting in patients with idiopathic intracranial hypertension who are refractory to medical therapy. Often the transverse sinus stenoses are bilateral, however, and there is no clear evidence for whether we should stent one or both sides in these patients. Our practice is to first stent one side, and in this brief case report, we demonstrate complete resolution of the contralateral stenosis in one such patient who underwent stenting. Her symptoms also completely resolved, and so this case highlights ...

Purpose: To compare retinal thickness between patients with chronic hypertension without retinopathy, hypertensive retinopathy, Keith–Wagener–Barker Grade IV status, and normal controls using spectral domain optical coherence tomography. Methods: In this retrospective study, we analyzed patients who visited our retinal clinic from January 2013 to February 2016. Of those included, 58 eyes of 58 patients were in the healthy control group (Group A), 37 eyes of 37 patients were in the chronic hypertension without retinopathy group (disease duration of at least 10 years; Group B), and 31 eyes of 31 patients wit...

ConclusionOur results support the hypothesis that the process of atherosclerotic plaque calcification presents a number of similarities with the physiological processes that occur in bone, involving both osteoblasts- and osteoclasts-like arterial cells. Finally, the present study suggests that risk factors, such as hypertension, cigarette smoke and diabetes, can cause the destabilization of the atheromatic plaque acting on calcification process as well as inflammation.

Abstract Introduction: The outcome of ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) is significantly influenced by the total tissue ischemic time. In spite of efforts for reducing the in-hospital delay by full-time provision of primary percutaneous coronary intervention (P-PCI) in the 24/7 program, pre-hospital delay still persists. As a first report in Iran, we aimed to assess the duration of pre-hospital delay and its contributing factors in STEMI patients in the P-PCI era. Methods: The present cross-sectional study evaluated 2103 STEMI patients who underwent primary PCI from 2016 to 2018. Demographic, persona...

Publication date: Available online 23 August 2019Source: Journal of Cardiology CasesAuthor(s): Vincenzo De Simone, Paola Guarise, Gabriele Zanotto, Giorgio MorandoAbstractPulmonary hypertension due to left heart disease (PH-LHD) frequently complicates heart failure with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF). Specific therapies for PH have not offered an advantage in patients with PH-LHD. The combined angiotensin receptor blocker–neprilysin inhibitor (ARNI), sacubitril/valsartan, is a novel therapy that can increase levels of natriuretic peptides (NPs). The resulting action on natriuresis and vasodilation may play an impo...
