Abstract The close connection and interaction between the cardiac and the liver functions are well-known, as cirrhotic cardiomyopathy is an important clinical entity which best describes the mutual pathogenical influence between these two organs. Due to the fact that cardiac dysfunction in patients with chronic hepatic disorders is oligosymptomatic or even asymptomatic, an early diagnosis represents a challenge for every physician. Syndecan-1-a transmembrane proteoglycan that exerts its functions mainly via its heparane sulfate chains-is a very promising biomarker, correlated not only with the degree of cardiac fi...

We report a case of Kounis syndrome type III (coronary thrombosis) variant in a 48-year-old male, who had suffered recurrent acute myocardial infarction after scallion-induced hypersensitivity reactions. Following appropriate anti-thrombotic, anti-histamine and reperfusion strategies, the patient was found to have elevated levels of IgE and chronic urticaria. Upon administration of omalizumab there was an improvement of chronic urticaria, decrease in IgE levels and abolishing of the ischemic attacks.

Authors: Pan RY, Zhao CH, Yuan JX, Zhang YJ, Jin JL, Gu MF, Mao ZY, Sun HJ, Jia QW, Ji MY, Zhang J, Wang LS, Ma WZ, Ma WQ, Ding JD, Jia EZ Abstract Circular RNAs (circRNAs) are potential biomarkers and therapeutic targets of coronary artery disease due to their high stability, covalently closed structure. And implied roles in gene regulation. The aim of this study was to identify and characterize circRNAs from human coronary arteries. Epicardial coronary arteries were removed during the autopsy of an 81-year-old man who died from heart attack. The natural history and histological classification of atherosclerotic l...

Background Diabetes mellitus predicts poorer outcomes in patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS), but the magnitude of this association in patients at older ages remains controversial. Methods Data were extracted from the Codi Infart database. All consecutive patients with diagnosis of ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) undergoing primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) between 2010 and 2015 were included. We assessed the impact of diabetes mellitus on 30-day and one-year mortality in patients aged less than and at least 75 years. Results A total of 12 792 cases were registered, of whom...

This study was performed to evaluate the relationship between the CHA2DS2-VASc score and no-reflow (NR) phenomena in patients with non-ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI). A total number of 428 consecutive patients with NSTEMI were assessed for this study. Patients were divided into 2 groups, those with NR, NR(+) (n=84), and those without NR, NR(-) (n=307), according to their post-PCI, no-reflow status. The CHA2DS2-VASc score was significantly higher in the NR(+) group compared to the NR(-) (3.48 ± 1.19 vs 1.81 ± 0.82, P

Conclusion was associated a higher possibility of post-PCI acute kidney injury and did not seem to improve 30-day or 1-year clinical outcomes. Patients undergoing staged CR during the same hospitalization had better clinical outcomes.

Conclusion The best algorithm to localise the culprit artery includes ST-elevation in leads II and V6 related to Cx, and ST-elevation in leads III, aVF and V3 related to right coronary artery. Our algorithm has been validated internally and externally, and works better than other previously published algorithms.

Conclusion: Sirolimus-eluting Stentys stent may represent a potential solution for specific coronary anatomies such as bifurcation, ectasic, or tapered vessels. Risk of stent thrombosis appears related to clinical presentation with STEMI and to anatomic features, stressing the importance of the use of intracoronary imaging for self-expandable stents implantation.
