Using the SYNTAX score to predict myocardial injury early after on-pump coronary artery bypass surgery: a single-centre experience analysis.

Using the SYNTAX score to predict myocardial injury early after on-pump coronary artery bypass surgery: a single-centre experience analysis. Kardiochir Torakochirurgia Pol. 2020 Jun;17(2):76-82 Authors: Namat RA, Burlacu A, Tinica G, Covic A, Mitu F Abstract Introduction: Marked isolated elevation of cardiac biomarkers (CK-MB, cardiac troponin I, heart-type fatty acid binding protein, hFABP) within 48 hours after coronary artery bypass surgery (CABG), even in the absence of electrocardiographic/angiographic evidence of myocardial infarction (MI), indicates prognostically significant cardiac procedural myocardial injury. There are no data exploring the relationship between the complexity of coronary atherosclerotic burden and early post-CABG myocardial injury. Aim: To analyse correlations and predictive strength of the SYNTAX score (SS) for early myocardial injury after on-pump CABG. Material and methods: One hundred and twenty consecutive patients undergoing CABG were included in the analysis. We obtained data on demographics, medical history, cardiovascular risk factors and echocardiography. Cardiac biomarkers were assessed at 6 hours after CABG. Multivariate linear regression analysis was performed to evaluate independent variables correlated with cardiac biomarkers. Results: The most significant predictor for myocardial injury was SS, strongly correlated with the rise of all cardiac biomarkers (p

AbstractVitamin C (Vit C) is an ideal antioxidant as it is easily available, water soluble, very potent, least toxic, regenerates other antioxidants particularly Vit E, and acts as a cofactor for different enzymes. It has received much attention due to its ability in limiting reactive oxygen species, oxidative stress, and nitrosative stress, as well as it helps to maintain some of the normal metabolic functions of the cell. However, over 140 clinical trials using Vit C in different pathological conditions such as myocardial infarction, gastritis, diabetes, hypertension, stroke, and cancer have yielded inconsistent results....

Exposure to heavy metals is common. This exposure is related to environmental contamination of air, water and soil, occupational exposure, accumulation in food, tobacco, and other factors. Cadmium and lead are notable for their widespread contamination, long-lasting effects in the body, and renal as well as cardiovascular toxicity. Acute toxicity due to high-level exposure, as well as chronic low-level exposure are now well-established pathogenic entities. Both chronic renal failure and ischemic heart disease patients have been treated separately in recent studies with ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA) chelation thera...

Authors: Wang J, Li L, Ma N, Zhang X, Qiao Y, Fang G, Li G, Zhong T Abstract A growing number of 'Young' patients less than 40 years of age are being hospitalized with a diagnosis of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) due to increased prevalence of risk factors for atherosclerosis. The aim of this study was to compare clinical characteristics and performances of AMI between young and elderly patients. We conducted a retrospective study to compare AMI in young patients and elder patients. Based on the medical record databases in our hospital, we enrolled 114 'young' AMI patients (age ≤42 years) and 179 'elder' AMI...

Authors: Eisa M, Sandhu A, Prakash R, Ganocy SJ, Fass R Abstract Background/Aims: A number of inflammatory mediators have been documented to be elevated in gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). Similar inflammatory mediators are involved in coronary artery disease. Thus, the aim of the study is to determine if GERD is a risk factor for developing acute myocardial infarction (AMI). Methods: We used Explorys, a private cloud-based data store to which a number of health care systems feed information. We identified a cohort of GERD patients who have undergone an esophagogastroduodenoscopy compared to those withou...

In conclusion, it remains unclear if brain-specific regional and temporal changes occur in the expression of the different APP variants during AD progression. Since APP is also found in blood cells, assessing the changes in APP mRNA expression in peripheral blood cells from AD patients has been considering an alternative. However, again the quantification of APP mRNA in peripheral blood cells has generated controversial results. Brain APP protein has been analyzed in only a few studies, probably as it is difficult to interpret the complex pattern of APP variants and fragments. We previously characterized the soluabl...

This study explores how racial-nativity status, family income, education level and the intersecting profile of these three social standings stratify differential patterns of chronic conditions among Canadians aged 45 years and older. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS: Using the baseline Canadian Longitudinal Study on Aging (n = 29,748), multinomial logistic regression analyses were conducted to estimate multivariable-adjusted odds of having one and/or two (≤ 2) or multiple (≥3) medical conditions (i.e., diabetes, asthma, cancer, previous heart attack, cardiovascular disease, kidney disease, hypertension,...

Á, Zalba G Abstract Oxidative stress is one of the main mechanisms involved in the pathophysiology of vascular diseases. Among others, oxidative stress promotes endothelial dysfunction, and accelerated ageing and remodelling of vasculature. Lately, NADPH oxidases have been demonstrated to be involved in cardiovascular diseases. NADPH oxidase 5 has emerged as a new player in oxidative stress-mediated endothelial alterations, involved in the pathophysiology of hypertension, diabetes, atherosclerosis, myocardial infarction and stroke. This oxidase seems to mediate its detrimental effects by promoting inflammat...

This study is the first to provide a direct link between this inflammation and plaque development - by way of IFITM3. Scientists know that the production of IFITM3 starts in response to activation of the immune system by invading viruses and bacteria. These observations, combined with the new findings that IFITM3 directly contributes to plaque formation, suggest that viral and bacterial infections could increase the risk of Alzheimer's disease development. Indeed, researchers found that the level of IFITM3 in human brain samples correlated with levels of certain viral infections as well as with gamma-secretase activ...

CONCLUSIONS: J-MINUET showed different clinical characteristics between the aged and younger populations. The incidence of in-hospital death and cardiac failure in patients aged 80 years or over with AMI was poorer than their younger counterparts. PMID: 32938566 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
