Health literacy in persons at risk of and patients with coronary heart disease: A systematic review

ConclusionsThe concept of HL yields a promising potential to understand the process from obtaining information to actual health behavior change, and the results clearly indicate the need for more systematic research on HL in CHD patients and persons at risk.

Authors: Chekalina NI, Burmak YH, Petrov YY, Borysova ZO, Trybrat TA, Shut SV, Kazakov YM Abstract OBJECTIVE: The aim of the research was to determine the dependence of the blood flow velocity in the thyroid arteries in patients with Autoimmune Thyroiditis (AIT) on the presence of atherosclerotic carotid disease and the level of systemic blood pressure. METHODS: The research involved 20 patients with AIT in euthyroid state, 30 patients AIT in euthyroid state with stable Coronary Heart Disease (CHD), 30 patients with stable CHD and 30 healthy individuals. Participants of the research were examined using ultrasou...

In this study, we propose an integrated method using machine learning. The machine learning methods of random trees (RTs), decision tree of C5.0, support vector machine (SVM), and decision tree of Chi-squared automatic interaction detection (CHAID) are used in this study. The proposed method shows promising results and the study confirms that the RTs model outperforms other models.

Authors: Li L, Wu F, Xie Y, Xu W, Xiong G, Xu Y, Huang S, Wu Y, Jiang X Abstract A previous study and a gene-annotation enrichment analysis for potential targets of the microRNA miR-202-3p both suggest that this microRNA might be implicated in cardiovascular and metabolic diseases. In the present study, the role of miR-202-3p in the pathogenesis of coronary heart disease (CHD) was explored. We conduct a case-control study to detect the expression levels of miR-202-3p in peripheral blood cells and found that miR-202-3p expression was significantly higher in CHD cases than in controls (P

Abstract PREMISES: Patients with migraine have a co-morbidity with vascular diseases such as hypertension, coronary heart disease, and stroke. PROBLEM: This overview gives recommendations for the therapy of acute migraine attacks and for migraine  prevention in patients with vascular diseases. In particular, the use of triptans in patients with vascular diseases is discussed. POTENTIAL SOLUTIONS: Currently, there is a contraindication for the use of the triptans in patients with vascular disease, although there is no evidence that triptans increase the risk of heart attacks or stroke. PMID: 319...

This study was designed to explore the expression of LncRNA-ANRIL in patients with coronary heart disease before and after treatment and its short-term survival prediction value. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Eighty-three patients with coronary heart disease who came to our hospital undergoing interventional therapy were selected as a research group, 81 healthy volunteers who came to our hospital for normal physical examination during the same period were selected as a control group, and LncRNA-ANRIL of subjects in the two groups before and after treatment were detected by RT-PCR. Levels of Gensini score, lactate dehydrogenase...

Recent studies have unveiled an association between ADAMTS7 gene variation and coronary artery disease (CAD) caused by atherosclerosis. We investigated if the ADAMTS7 Serine214-to-Proline substitution arising from a CAD-associated variant affected angiogenesis, since neovascularization plays an important role in atherosclerosis.

Conclusion: Granule of BU-XIN RUAN-MAI is an excellent prescription for treatment of coronary heart disease by suppressing inflammation and NAPDH-mediated oxidative stress. The miR-542-3p/GABARAP axis is required for Granule of BU-XIN RUAN-MAI, exhibiting its protective activity against the pectoris of coronary heart disease. PMID: 31949464 [PubMed]
