GSE120087 Cardiac ReductomiRs: Identification of Novel Nrf2-Dependent microRNAs as Post-Transcriptional Regulators of Myocardial Gene Expression mRNA

Conclusion: Here, we reveal several Nrf2 dose-responsive miRNA loci harboring putative upstream antioxidant response elements (AREs). Intriguingly, Nrf2-mediated miRNA responses were distinctly enriched for post-transcriptional regulation of cardiac-specific mRNAs. Altogether, these data reveal Nrf2 as a potent regulator of cardiac miRNA expression and provide novel candidates for future mechanistic investigation into the relationship between myocardial redox status and pathophysiology.

Authors: Dandel M, Javier MFDM, Javier Delmo EMD, Hetzer R Abstract Introduction: Because end-stage heart failure (HF) often involves both ventricles even if its initial cause was left-sided heart disease, assessment of RV size, geometry and function before, during and after LVAD implantation is of crucial importance.Areas covered: This review discusses the usefulness, benefits, particular challenges and limits of RV assessment in patients with end-stage HF due to primarily impaired LV function who necessitate LVAD support, with or without an additional RV mechanical support.Expert opinion: Although LV unloading of...

Abstract Diabetes mellitus predisposes affected individuals to a significant spectrum of cardiovascular complications, one of the most debilitating in terms of prognosis is heart failure. Indeed, the increasing global prevalence of diabetes mellitus and an aging population has given rise to an epidemic of diabetes mellitus-induced heart failure. Despite the significant research attention this phenomenon, termed diabetic cardiomyopathy, has received over several decades, understanding of the full spectrum of potential contributing mechanisms, and their relative contribution to this heart failure phenotype in the sp...

Authors: Lehto HR, Pietilä A, Niiranen TJ, Lommi J, Salomaa V Abstract Aims: To compare diabetic patients with coronary heart disease (CHD) needing revascularization to corresponding non-diabetic patients in terms of revascularization methods, comorbidities and urgency of procedure. We also examined the impact of patient characteristics and comorbidities on the revascularization method.Methods: We identified all diabetic (n = 33,018) and non-diabetic (n = 106,224) patients with first-ever, percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) or coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) from electr...

The aims of this study were to explore the factors associated with the serum levels of N-terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP), and the association between prognosis and a history of HF or the serum NT-proBNP level in Japanese patients wit...

ConclusionUnfortunately, there is considerable inconsistency among the databases searched, such that a clinician ’s discretion and clinical experience remain invaluable tools for the management of patients with comorbidities present in psychiatric and cardiac disorders. The possibility of an interaction should be considered. With a multidisciplinary approach, particularly involving a pharmacist, the prescrib er should be alerted to the possibility of an interaction. MDD and AD pharmacologic treatment in cardiac patients could be implemented safely both by cardiologists and psychiatrists.Trial RegistrationPROSPERO Sys...

Abstract BACKGROUND: Patients with congenital heart disease (CHD) reportedly have reduced exercise capacity. Underlying cardiac anatomy and a sedentary lifestyle are thought to be associated with exercise impairment. However, little has been reported regarding the relationship between quantitative body composition and exercise capacity. Bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) is a rapid and safe assessment method that has been widely used in clinical research. We hypothesized that bioelectrical impedance parameters are determinants of exercise capacity, and the skeletal muscle index (SMI) determined by BIA is a pro...

This study uses longitudinal cohort data to estimate the impacts of air pollution on health outcomes among people first hospitalised with heart diseases. Despite the generally low level of pollution in Australia, we find that acute exposure to pollution increases readmissions to hospitals within 3 –12 months after discharge and is more evident among those suffering from heart failure. We further show that chronic exposure to air pollution increases the risk of death within 72 months, hospital admissions and general practitioner (GP) visits. Patients with coronary heart disease or cerebrov ascular disease ar...

Discussion Peptide receptor radiotherapy is safe in the setting of Carcinoid valvular heart disease in patients with controlled heart failure, PPRT can be use in the pre- and post-valve surgery period. There appears to be a survival benefit of having peptide receptor radiotherapy. Further evidence for peptide receptor radiotherapy in the neoadjuvant setting prior to cardiothoracic surgery is required.
