Relationship between Plasma Lipoprotein-Associated Phospholipase A2 Concentrations and Apolipoprotein in Stable Coronary Artery Disease Patients.

Relationship between Plasma Lipoprotein-Associated Phospholipase A2 Concentrations and Apolipoprotein in Stable Coronary Artery Disease Patients. Dis Markers. 2020;2020:8818358 Authors: Ling Y, Tang S, Cao Y, Fu C Abstract Background: Increasing evidence states that the plasma lipoprotein-associated phospholipase A2 (Lp-PLA2) levels and apolipoprotein particles are regarded as the risk maker for cardiovascular heart disease. Nevertheless, the issue about whether Lp-PLA2 is associated with apolipoprotein particles in individuals who have been diagnosed as stable coronary artery disease (CAD) remains largely unexplored. Method: All 569 participants engaged in this research, who never took lipid-lowering drugs, had been divided into groups by the coronary angiography (CAG), namely, stable CAD: n = 291; non-CAD: n = 278. The results concerning Lp-PLA2 levels were calculated by Elisa Kit, while apolipoprotein particles were measured by the department of laboratory. Results: The plasma concentration of Lp-PLA2 was remarkably higher in stable CAD group than the non-CAD group (136.0 ± 60.5 ng/mL vs. 113.2 ± 65.6 ng/mL, P

Objective: To study the interaction effects of rs10757278 polymorphisms at 9p21 locus and traditional risk factors on coronary heart disease (CHD) in Xinjiang, China. Methods: This case–control study consecutively enrolled 310 unrelated consecutive CHD patients aged 18–70 years old. All study participants were recruited between January and December 2017 from The Heart Center of The First Affiliated Hospital of Xinjiang Medical University. CHD patients were confirmed by coronary angiography (≥50% diameter stenosis in at least one of the major coronary arteries) according to the American Heart Association...

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...

61-year-old Caucasian female with hypertension, hyperlipidemia and diabetes mellitus presented after a mechanical fall. She had no other symptoms and family history was negative for congenital heart disease. Physical examination was within normal limits. Electrocardiogram showed atrial fibrillation. Transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) revealed abnormal pulmonary artery flow and mild tricuspid regurgitation. She was started on rivaroxaban and Cardiac Computed Tomography Angiography (CCTA) was done due to concern for Patent Ductus Arteriosus (PDA).

Conclusion“TMT Predict” is a simple user-friendly android app, which uses six simple clinical attributes to predict the results of TMT. The app has a high negative predictive value indicating that it is a useful tool to rule out CAHD. The “TMT Predict” could be a future digital replacement for the manual TMT as an initial screening tool to rule out CAHD.
