Authors: Valentí V, Cienfuegos JA, Becerril Mañas S, Frühbeck G Abstract Bariatric-metabolic surgery is the safest, most effective and long-lasting treatment for obesity and its associated co-morbidities, whether they be metabolic (type 2 diabetes, hyperlipidemia non-alcoholic fatty liver disease) or cardiovascular (myocardial infarction, stroke). Due to the obesity pandemic, bariatric-metabolic surgery is the second most frequent intra-abdominal procedure and the gastroenterologist and the surgeon must be aware of the physiologic changes caused by the anatomic reconfiguration following surgery. ...

Authors: De Vecchis R, Paccone A, Di Maio M Abstract BACKGROUND: The MacNew questionnaire in its original version is a diagnostic tool which consists of a number of questions answered on a seven-point scale. Among the multiple possible choices, each marked by a box, the examined patient will have to tick only one. In fact, more than one answer for each proposed question is not allowed, for the formulation of the final score. Global and subscale( physical, social and emotional subscales) scores are computed by dividing the sum of the scores achieved for each individual item by the number of items listed in the quest...

CONCLUSIONS: Not all interventional procedures result in a mortality benefit. Medical therapy alone increases survival in many cardiac diseases. PMID: 32083425 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSIONS: The assessment of mitral apparatus in acute phase of MI can be most useful to determine the change of the degree of MR long-term post MI. Although LV remodelling itself contributes to IMR, this influence is directly dependent on alterations in mitral geometry. PMID: 32083424 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Iking J, Klose J, Staniszewska M, Fendler W, Herrmann K, Rischpler C Abstract Inflammation after myocardial infarction (MI) has been in the focus of cardiovascular research for several years as it influences the remodelling process of the ischaemic heart and thereby critically determines the clinical outcome of the patient. Today, it is well appreciated that inflammation is a crucial necessity for the initiation of the natural wound healing process; however, excessive inflammation can have detrimental effects and might result in adverse ventricular remodelling which is associated with an increased risk of ...

Authors: Heo GS, Sultan D, Liu Y Abstract Cardiovascular disease (CVD) remains the leading cause of death worldwide despite advances in diagnostic technologies and treatment strategies. The underlying cause of most CVD is atherosclerosis, a chronic disease driven by inflammatory reactions. Atherosclerotic plaque rupture could cause arterial occlusion leading to ischemic tissue injuries such as myocardial infarction (MI) and stroke. Clinically, most imaging modalities are based on anatomy and provide limited information about the on-going molecular activities affecting the vulnerability of atherosclerotic lesion for...

Authors: Calcagno C, Fayad ZA Abstract Cardiovascular disease due to atherosclerosis is the number one cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. In the past twenty years, compelling preclinical and clinical data have indicated that a maladaptive inflammatory response plays a crucial role in the development of atherosclerosis initiation and progression in the vasculature, all the way to the onset of life-threatening cardiovascular events. Furthermore, inflammation is key to heart and brain damage and healing after myocardial infarction or stroke. Recent evidence indicates that this interplay between the vasculatur...

Introduction Acute hyperglycemia and contrast-induced nephropathy (CIN) are frequently observed in non-ST elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI) patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), and both are associated with an increased mortality rate. We investigated the possible association between acute hyperglycemia and CIN in patients with NSTEMI undergoing PCI. Materials and methods We retrospectively enrolled 281(149, 53% men) NSTEMI patients undergoing PCI. For each patient, plasma glucose levels were secreened at hospital admission. Acute hyperglycemia was defined as glucose levels> 198&thins...
