The relationship between a combination of vitamin D deficiency and hyperuricemia and the severity of coronary artery disease in myocardial infarction patients.

The relationship between a combination of vitamin D deficiency and hyperuricemia and the severity of coronary artery disease in myocardial infarction patients. Turk Kardiyol Dern Ars. 2020 Jan;48(1):10-19 Authors: Somuncu MU, Serbest NG, Akgül F, Çakır MO, Akgün T, Tatar FP, Can M, Tekin A Abstract OBJECTIVE: Vitamin D deficiency has been shown to be associated with coronary artery disease (CAD). In addition, there are studies suggesting that hyperuricemia is an independent risk factor for atherosclerosis, whereas the relationship between the combination of these 2 parameters and severity of CAD remains unclear. The aim of this study was to investigate the association between the combination of vitamin D deficiency and hyperuricemia and the extent of CAD. METHODS: A total of 502 patients who had experienced myocardial infarction (MI) were included in this cross-sectional study. The 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25OHD) and serum uric acid (SUA) levels were measured in blood samples taken at the time of admission. A 2x2 factorial design was used to create groups according to the presence of hyperuricemia (>7 mg/dL) and vitamin D deficiency (

I'm a CT surgery junior resident doing a 1 month cath rotation in a few months. I was wondering if there was a good handbook in interv cardio that you would recommend? I'm looking for something that ideally would provide me with what I need to know as a surgeon, something that is easy to read from cover to cover and covers the basics and fundamentals without going into too many details or being overly complex. My learning goals for the rotation are to be able to read coronary angiograms... Good textbook for cardiac cath/interv cardio for a surgical resident?

This article aims to classify the severity grading assessments for both insulin resistance (IR) syndrome and status of pancreatic beta (β) islet cells’ function using the homeostasis model assessment method (that is; homeostasis model assessment-insulin resistance [HOMA-IR] and homeostasis model assessment-pancreatic beta (β) islet cells’ function [HOMA-B] indices) with the focus of disseminating this information rapidly for clinical use by physicians in their patients with dysfunctional regulation of glucose metabolism. It will also assist clinicians to prevent and screen for these individuals who ar...

This study seeks the association between vitamin D deficiency and acute myocardial infarction (MI) in Iraq. Patients and methods A total of 104 patients with acute MI and 104 healthy controls were studied throughout 2015. Their demographic, cardiovascular risk factors, and clinical characteristics were recorded. Serum vitamin D measurement was carried out for all patients. Results Vitamin D was more deficient in cases than controls; the number of cases was 60 (57.7%) and 53 (51%), respectively. However, a statistically significant difference (P=0.6) was not obtained. In the patient group, type 2 diabetes mellitus sho...

There continues to be interest in understanding the role of vitamin D in the pathogenesis, epidemiology and prevention of cardiovascular disease (CVD). In fact vitamin D deficiency has been associated to an increased risk of developing CVD given to the relationship between low vitamin D levels and obesity, diabetes mellitus, dyslipidaemia, endothelial dysfunction and hypertension. However, although vitamin D has been identified as a potentially important marker of CVD, the mechanisms through which vitamin D deficiency leads from endothelial dysfunction to myocardial infarction and stroke are not fully understood.

The objective of this study was to assess vitamin D as a predictor of the severity in diabetics with acute coronary syndrome (ACS). Methods: A total of 166 patients were diagnosed with ACS. Serum 25OHD concentrations were analyzed, and risk factors for ACS were evaluated. Results: Patients diagnosed as having acute myocardial infarction with elevation of the ST segment had a higher rate of 25OHD,

Recent studies suggested a possible relationship between vitamin D deficiency and increased carotid intima-media wall thickness and vascular calcification. We hypothesized that low 25(OH)D may be associated with coronary atherosclerosis and coronar...
