Fat intake and the risk of coronary heart disease among Jordanians.

CONCLUSIONS: while trans-fats may be significantly associated with the development of CVD in the first two quartiles, no association has been detected with other fat types. PMID: 32124617 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Conclusions: High-grade NAFLD is more present in symptomatic CHD. The higher degree of liver stiffness in patients with NAFLD, the higher risk of CHD in these NAFLD patients.

AbstractBecause the phenomenon of no reflow has a poor prognosis in ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) patients and the atherogenic index of plasma (AIP) has been shown to be a strong predictor of coronary heart disease, we aimed to investigate the relationship between AIP and no-reflow in patients with acute STEMI who underwent primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). A total of 763 consecutive STEMI patients (648 men; mean age 58  ± 12 years) who underwent primary PCI were recruited for this study. The patients were classified into a reflow group (n = 537) ...

Background: COPD and coronary heart disease (CHD) frequently co-occur, yet which COPD phenotypes most prone to CHD is poorly understood. We aimed to examine COPD characteristics as CHD risk factors.Methods: 251 COPD patients and 370 non-COPD controls from Norway, aged 48-90, took coronary CT angiography (CCTA) and pulmonary CT in 2013-2015. Arterial blood gasses, bioelectrical impedance and lung function was measured, and a detailed medical history taken. CCTA were evaluated as either wall changes+stenosis (possible coronary disease) or stenosis only (certain coronary disease), and emphysema defined as>10% of total area

Authors: Infante T, Viscovo LD, Rimini ML, Padula S, Caso P, Napoli C Abstract Early identification of coronary atherosclerotic pathogenic mechanisms is useful for predicting the risk of coronary heart disease (CHD) and future cardiac events. Epigenome changes may clarify a significant fraction of this "missing hereditability", thus offering novel potential biomarkers for prevention and care of CHD. The rapidly growing disciplines of systems biology and network science are now poised to meet the fields of precision medicine and personalized therapy. Network medicine integrates standard clinical recording ...

Purpose of review The purpose is to review the use of coronary computed tomography (CT) angiography to assess coronary plaque burden/progression and to discuss about recent clinical trials that have utilized this imaging modality to study the effect of new pharmacotherapies on plaque burden/progression. Recent findings There are numerous clinical trials that have utilized coronary CT angiography to demonstrate the potential benefits of statins, apixaban, rivaroxaban, aged garlic extract, biologic agents, and omega-3 fatty acids to reduce coronary plaque progression. Coronary CT angiography can identify high-risk plaqu...

Rationale: Atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD), including coronary heart disease (CHD), atherosclerotic stroke and peripheral vascular disease, has become the most deadly chronic noncommunicable disease throughout the world in recent decades, while plaque regression could reduce the occurrence of ASCVD. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has been widely used for prevention and treatment of these diseases. In the perspective of TCM, phlegm and blood stasis are considered to be leading pathogenesis for CHD. Hence, activating blood circulation and dissipating phlegm, which is of great benefit to regress plaque, h...

Conclusion: Intracranial artery calcification is common in patients with ischemic cerebrovascular disease and the intracranial carotid artery is most frequently affected. Intracranial arterial calcifications might be associated with imaging markers of SVD and are highly correlated with WMHs, lacunes, and CMBs. Quantification of calcification on CT provides additional information on the pathophysiology of SVD. Intracranial arterial calcification could act as a potential marker of SVD. Introduction Atherosclerosis is a systemic vascular process that is considered a major cause of cerebrovascular and cardiovascular di...

Conclusions: Embolism associated with asymptomatic carotid stenosis shows circadian variation with highest rates 4–6 h before midday. This corresponds with peak circadian incidence of stroke and other vascular complications. These and ASED Study results show that monitoring frequency, duration, and time of day are important in ES detection. Introduction Transcranial Doppler (TCD) detected microembolism in the ipsilateral middle cerebral artery (MCA) may help stratify the risk of stroke and other arterial disease complications in persons with advanced (≥60%) asymptomatic carotid stenosis. If so, this techniqu...

This study aimed to detect the circulating oxidized low ‐density lipoprotein (ox‐LDL) levels of controls and patients with stable angina pectoris (SAP), unstable angina pectoris (UAP), and acute myocardial infarction (AMI) and also to investigate the correlation with the severity of coronary heart disease (CHD). Plasma levels of circulating ox‐LDL‐ 4E6, malondialdehyde (MDA), high‐sensitivity C‐reactive protein (hs‐CRP), total cholesterol, high‐density lipoprotein cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, apoprotein A, apoprotein B, and lipoprotein (a) (Lp(a)) were measured in 99 participants who underwent coronary ang...
