RESUMO

Store-Operated Ca2+ Entry (SOCE) is an important Ca2+ influx pathway expressed by several excitable and non-excitable cell types. SOCE is recognized as relevant signaling pathway not only for physiological process, but also for its involvement in different pathologies. In fact, independent studies demonstrated the implication of essential protein regulating SOCE, such as STIM, Orai and TRPCs, in different pathogenesis and cell disorders, including cardiovascular disease, muscular dystrophies and angiogenesis. Compelling evidence showed that dysregulation in the function and/or expression of isoforms of STIM, Orai or TRPC play pivotal roles in cardiac hypertrophy and heart failure, vascular remodeling and hypertension, skeletal myopathies, and angiogenesis. In this chapter, we summarized the current knowledge concerning the mechanisms underlying abnormal SOCE and its involvement in some diseases, as well as, we discussed the significance of STIM, Orai and TRPC isoforms as possible therapeutic targets for the treatment of angiogenesis, cardiovascular and skeletal muscle diseases.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: The timing and indications for surgical intervention in asymptomatic patients with severe aortic stenosis remain controversial. METHODS: In a multicenter trial, we randomly assigned 145 asymptomatic patients with very severe aortic stenosis (defined as an aortic-valve area of ≤0.75 cm2 with either an aortic jet velocity of ≥4.5 m per second or a mean transaortic gradient of ≥50 mm Hg) to early surgery or to conservative care according to the recommendations of current guidelines. The primary end point was a composite of death during or within 30 days after surgery (often called operative mortality) or death from cardiovascular causes during the entire follow-up period. The major secondary end point was death from any cause during follow-up. RESULTS: In the early-surgery group, 69 of 73 patients (95%) underwent surgery within 2 months after randomization, and there was no operative mortality. In an intention-to-treat analysis, a primary end-point event occurred in 1 patient in the early-surgery group (1%) and in 11 of 72 patients in the conservative-care group (15%) (hazard ratio, 0.09; 95% confidence interval [CI], 0.01 to 0.67; P = 0.003). Death from any cause occurred in 5 patients in the early-surgery group (7%) and in 15 patients in the conservative-care group (21%) (hazard ratio, 0.33; 95% CI, 0.12 to 0.90). In the conservative-care group, the cumulative incidence of sudden death was 4% at 4 years and 14% at 8 years. CONCLUSIONS: Among asymptomatic patients with very severe aortic stenosis, the incidence of the composite of operative mortality or death from cardiovascular causes during the follow-up period was significantly lower among those who underwent early aortic-valve replacement surgery than among those who received conservative care.

RESUMO

SUMMARY: The 2D:4D is thought as a biomarker for prenatal androgen exposure. Some studies have reported a significant difference between the sexes. Earlier studies reported variations in different ethnic and geographic groups. 2D:4D is related to several medical conditions including cardiovascular diseases (CVD) and metabolic syndrome (MetS). The present study investigated the relationships between hand preference, ratio of the index finger (2nd digit: 2D) and ring finger (4th digit: 4D) lengths (2D:4D), height, waist-to-height ratio (WHtR), waist circumference (WC) and weight, body mass index (BMI) in a Turkish population. The study comprised 118 healthy subjects (68 males and 50 females). 2D and 4D finger lengths and some anthropometric traits (height, weight, WC) were measured. The BMI and WHtR were calculated. Hand preference was determined by using a questionnaire (Edinburgh handedness inventory). Geschwind scores were calculated to evaluate the degree of hand preference. The mean age was 26.74 (female 27.86, male 25.89). The right hand 2D:4D was found significantly lower in males (0.9797) than in females (0.9922) (p< 0.001), but the left hand 2D:4D was insignificant. Significant correlations (negative) were observed between the 2D:4D (both left and right) and WHtR; the 2D:4D ratio (both left and right) and WC in males. However, in females, these correlations were insignificant. The R2D:4D was sexually dimorphic in a Turkish population. There were significant differences between strong right (SR) and weak left (WL) in terms of the R2D:4D. However only 5 subject's hand preference was found WL. Therefore, further studies are needed to determine the relationships between hand preference and R2D:4D in Turkish population. Further studies are needed to determine whether a larger sample population alters these possible associations between the ratio of 2D:4D and other investigated traits in a Turkish population.


RESUMEN: El 2D:4D está pensado como un biomarcador para la exposición prenatal de andrógenos. Algunos estudios han reportado una diferencia significativa entre sexos. Estudios anteriores informaron variaciones en diferentes grupos étnicos y geográficos. 2D:4D está relacionado con varias afecciones médicas que incluyen enfermedades cardiovasculares (ECV) y síndrome metabólico (MetS). El presente estudio investigó las relaciones entre la preferencia de la mano, la proporción del dedo índice (2º dígito: 2D) y el dedo anular (4º dígito: 4D), longitudes (2D:4D), altura, relación cintura-altura (WHtR), circunferencia de cintura y peso (WC), e índice de masa corporal (IMC), en una población de Turquía. El estudio incluyó 118 sujetos sanos (68 hombres y 50 mujeres). Se midieron longitudes de dedos 2D y 4D y algunos rasgos antropométricos (altura, peso, WC). Se calcularon el IMC y el WHtR. La preferencia de la mano se determinó mediante el uso de una escala (Edinburgh Handedness Inventory). Las puntuaciones de Geschwind se calcularon para evaluar el grado de preferencia de la mano. La edad media fue de 26,74 años (femenino 27,86; masculino 25,89). La mano derecha 2D: 4D se encontró significativamente más baja en los hombres (0,9797) que en las mujeres (0,9922) (p <0,001), pero la mano izquierda 2D: 4D fue no significante. Se observaron correlaciones significativas (negativas) entre la 2D: 4D (izquierda y derecha) y WHtR y la relación 2D: 4D (izquierda y derecha) y WC en hombres. Sin embargo, en las mujeres, estas correlaciones fueron no significantes. El R2D: 4D fue sexualmente dimorfo en una población de Turquía. Hubo diferencias significativas entre la mano derecha fuerte (SR) y la mano izquierda débil (WL) en términos de R2D: 4D. Sin embargo, sólo se encontraron 5 preferencias de mano en el sujeto con WL. Por lo tanto, se necesitan más estudios para determinar las relaciones entre la preferencia de mano y R2D: 4D en la población de Turquía. Se necesitan más estudios para determinar si una muestra mayor altera estas posibles asociaciones entre la proporción de 2D: 4D y otros rasgos investigados en una población de Turquía.

RESUMO

Resumen La exposición al tabaco en el útero se asocia con un menor crecimiento fetal, una disminución en el peso al nacer y un incremento significativo de nacimientos con bajo peso. Por otra parte, diversos estudios han indicado que el tabaquismo materno puede provocar sobrepeso u obesidad y un aumento rápido de peso en la infancia, lo puede aumentar el riesgo de enfermedades cardiovasculares y diabetes tipo 2 en la adultez temprana. Los niños expuestos a humo de tabaco en la vida intrauterina, tienen un sistema autónomo hiperreactivo durante las primeras semanas de vida, un crecimiento desproporcionado entre el parénquima pulmonar y las vías aéreas (crecimiento disináptico pulmonar), una disminución en la función pulmonar, un riesgo aumentado de asma, bronquitis y sibilancias en el producto. Existen asociaciones entre el tabaquismo materno y la reducción de las capacidades psicomotoras infantiles, así como los problemas de conducta incluido el trastorno por déficit de atención/hiperactividad en la niñez. Se ha observado un aumento en el riesgo de neoplasias benignas en la infancia (hemangioma y quiste tiroideo), pero no de neoplasias malignas.


Abstract Exposure to tobacco in the uterus is associated with lower fetal growth, a decrease in birth weight and a significant increase in low birth weight births. On the other hand, several studies have indicated that maternal smoking can cause overweight or obesity and a rapid increase in weight in childhood, which can increase the risk of cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes in early adulthood. Children exposed to tobacco smoke in intrauterine life, have a hyperreactive autonomic system during the first weeks of life, a disproportionate growth in lung parenchyma and airways (pulmonary dysynaptic growth), a reduction in lung function, an Increased risk in asthma, bronchitis and wheezing in the product. There are associations between maternal smoking and the reduction of infant psychomotor abilities, as well as behavioral problems that include children attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder. There has been an increase in the risk of benign neoplasms in childhood (hemangioma and thyroid cyst), but not malignant neoplasms.

RESUMO

Introducción: Los pacientes con enfermedad arterial periférica sometidos a cirugía vascular no cardíaca programada presentan un riesgo significativo de complicaciones cardiovasculares, debido a la enfermedad cardíaca sintomática o asintomática subyacente. Objetivo: Valorar el riesgo coronario en los pacientes tributarios de cirugía vascular no cardíaca. Métodos: Estudio descriptivo prospectivo en 35 pacientes del Servicio de Angiología y Cirugía Vascular del Hospital Clínico Quirúrgico Hermanos Ameijeiras. El período de estudio osciló entre octubre de 2013 y mayo de 2016. Las variables cualitativas se expresaron como frecuencias absolutas y relativas. Se evaluó la asociación entre las variables mediante el test de Fischer, se usó el coeficiente de Pearson para relacionar los valores del índice de presiones tobillo brazo y los niveles del calcio score. Resultados: Predominó el sexo masculino y la edad menor de 60 años. El tabaquismo y la hipertensión arterial fueron los factores de riesgo de mayor frecuencia. A pesar de no existir diferencia significativa (p = 0,563) al asociar el calcio score y el índice de presiones tobillo-brazo, sí existió una correlación lineal negativa entre ellos. Las complicaciones perioperatorias presentadas en el grupo de moderado-alto riesgo quirúrgico fueron la fibrilación ventricular, el infarto agudo de miocardio y el paro cardíaco. Conclusiones: La valoración del riesgo coronario es una herramienta útil en la detección de lesiones coronarias significativas que pueden favorecer la aparición de complicaciones perioperatorias en los pacientes que son tributarios de tratamiento quirúrgico revascularizador no cardíaco(AU)


Introduction: Patients with peripheral arterial disease undergoing scheduled non-cardiac vascular surgery present a significant risk of cardiovascular complications due to underlying symptomatic or asymptomatic heart disease. Objective: To assess coronary risk in patients eligible for non-cardiac vascular surgery. Methods: A prospective descriptive study was carried out in 35 patients of the Angiology and Vascular Surgery service in Hermanos Ameijeiras Hospital. The study was conducted between October 2013 and May 2016. Qualitative variables were summarized as absolute and relative frequencies. It was assessed the association between the variables using the Fischer´s test; Pearson´s coefficient was used to relate the values of the index of ankle- arm pressure and the levels of calcium score. Results: Male sex predominated; and ages less than 60 years. Smoking habit and high blood pressure were the most common risk factors. Although there is no significant difference (p= 0,563) when associating the calcium score and the ankle-brachial pressure index, there was a negative linear correlation between them. The peri-operative complications presented in the moderate to high surgical risk group were ventricular fibrillation, acute myocardial infarction and cardiac arrest. Conclusions: Identification of coronary risk is a useful tool in the detection of significant coronary lesions that may favor the emergence of peri-operative complications in patients who are scheduled for non-cardiac revascularization's surgical treatment(AU)

RESUMO

Cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) are disorders of the heart and blood vessels and include coronary heart diseases, cerebrovascular diseases, rheumatic heart diseases, and other conditions. CVDs are one of the most major causes of morbidity and mortality around the world, taking the lives of 17.9 million people every year. Several investigations have shown the influence of Ganoderma lucidum (G. lucidum, Lingzhi) on some metabolic markers, such as low-density lipoprotein (LDL), high-density lipoprotein (HDL), total cholesterol (TC), blood pressure, and oxidative damage. G. lucidum potentially reduces the risk of suffering cardiovascular diseases. Some studies found that G. lucidum prevented from heart damage in a variety of disease models, such as streptozotocin (STZ)-induced diabetic, high-fat-diet-induced diabetic, isoprenaline (ISO)-induced myocardial hypertrophy, acute ethanol-induced heart toxicity, and transverse aortic constriction (TAC) models. This chapter summarizes putative preventive and therapeutic effects of G. lucidum on cardiovascular diseases and the potential clinical use of G. lucidum involved in these effects.

RESUMO

It is estimated that up to 90% of patients with chronic kidney disease develop secondary hyperparathyroidism (sHPT). Although the disease has multiple manifestations, the most important pathological feature, from the point of view of increased mortality, is represented by the ectopic arterial, myocardial and cardiac valvular calcifications. The calcifications are progressive and lead to high blood pressure, left ventricular hypertrophy, atrio-ventricular blocks, angina and myocardial infarction. Therefore the risk of cardio-vascular events is increased. Failure of drug therapy to control disease progression is an indication for parathyroidectomy. In sHPT all parathyroid glands are affected, hence the need to detect 4 glands intraoperatively, by bilateral cervical exploration. However, considering the possibility of ectopic localization of these glands as well as the possibility of some supernumerary glands, it is desirable to have an imagistic map as accurate as possible, thus avoiding the risk of postoperative recurrence. The available imaging investigations are represented by the ultrasound of the cervical region, the parathyroid scintigraphy and those of the second line - CT or MRI examination. If in primary hyperparathyroidism, where there is only one parathyroid adenoma (or two), the preoperative imaging results are satisfactory, in sHPT there are many cases in which the imaging does not reveal all four parathyroid glands.

RESUMO

OBJECTIVE: To determine the relation between age and troponin level and its prognostic implication. DESIGN: Retrospective cohort study. SETTING: Five cardiovascular centres in the UK National Institute for Health Research Health Informatics Collaborative (UK-NIHR HIC). PARTICIPANTS: 257 948 consecutive patients undergoing troponin testing for any clinical reason between 2010 and 2017. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE: All cause mortality. RESULTS: 257 948 patients had troponin measured during the study period. Analyses on troponin were performed using the peak troponin level, which was the highest troponin level measured during the patient's hospital stay. Troponin levels were standardised as a multiple of each laboratory's 99th centile of the upper limit of normal (ULN). During a median follow-up of 1198 days (interquartile range 514-1866 days), 55 850 (21.7%) deaths occurred. A positive troponin result (that is, higher than the upper limit of normal) signified a 3.2 higher mortality hazard (95% confidence interval 3.1 to 3.2) over three years. Mortality varied noticeably with age, with a hazard ratio of 10.6 (8.5 to 13.3) in 18-29 year olds and 1.5 (1.4 to 1.6) in those older than 90. A positive troponin result was associated with an approximately 15 percentage points higher absolute three year mortality across all age groups. The excess mortality with a positive troponin result was heavily concentrated in the first few weeks. Results were analysed using multivariable adjusted restricted cubic spline Cox regression. A direct relation was seen between troponin level and mortality in patients without acute coronary syndrome (ACS, n=120 049), whereas an inverted U shaped relation was found in patients with ACS (n=14 468), with a paradoxical decline in mortality at peak troponin levels >70×ULN. In the group with ACS, the inverted U shaped relation persisted after multivariable adjustment in those who were managed invasively; however, a direct positive relation was found between troponin level and mortality in patients managed non-invasively. CONCLUSIONS: A positive troponin result was associated with a clinically important increased mortality, regardless of age, even if the level was only slightly above normal. The excess mortality with a raised troponin was heavily concentrated in the first few weeks. STUDY REGISTRATION: ClinicalTrials.gov NCT03507309.

RESUMO

We aimed to investigate the correlation of homocysteine (Hcy) level with clinical characteristics, and explore its predictive value for major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE) risk in female patients with premature acute coronary syndrome (ACS).The serum Hcy level was detected from 1299 female patients with premature ACS. According to the tertile of Hcy level, patients were divided into 3 groups: lowest tertile group (≤9.1 µmol/L), middle tertile group (9.2-11.6 µmol/L) and highest tertile group (>11.6 µmol/L). MACE incidence was recorded and MACE-free survival was caculated with the median follow-up duration of 28.3 months.Increased Hcy correlated with older age (P < .001), higher creatinine level (P < .001), and enhanced uric acid level (P = .001), while reduced fasting glucose concentration (P < .001). MACE incidence was 10.7% and it was highest in highest tertile group (22.1%), followed by middle tertile group (7.7%) and lowest tertile group (2.4%) (P < .001). Receiver operating characteristic curve showed that Hcy distinguished MACE patients from non-MACE patients with the area under the curve of 0.789 (95% CI: 0.742-0.835). Kaplan-Meier curves revealed that MACE-free survival was shortest in Hcy highest tertile group, followed by middle tertile group and lowest tertile group (P < .001). Multivariate Cox analyses further showed that higher Hcy level was an independent predictive factor for poor MACE-free survival (middle tertile vs lowest tertile (P = .001, HR: 3.615, 95% CI: 1.661-7.864); highest tertile vs lowest tertile (P < .001, HR: 11.023, 95% CI: 5.356-22.684)).Hcy serves as a potential predictive factor for increased MACE risk in female patients with premature ACS.

RESUMO

Sleep is a condition of physiological relaxation for the cardiovascular system, and sleep-disordered breathing disturbs it. Recurrent episodes of sleep apnea disrupt the physiological interactions between sleep and the cardiovascular system. Sleep apnea can affect not only patients quality of life with cardiovascular diseases, but also their morbidity and mortality. Thus sleep apnea becomes a significant, influential risk factor in cardiology.

RESUMO

INTRODUCTION: The association between aortic valve disease and dilatation of the ascending aorta is well known and concomitant surgery is recommended when the aortic diameter is higher than 45mm. The use of the rapid deployment valves allows less cross-clamping and cardiopulmonary bypass times for both isolated and combined procedures in comparison to regular valves. We describe our initial experience of concomitant aortic valve and the ascending aortic replacement, using the rapid deployment valve Edward Intuity EliteTM. CASE PRESENTATION: All patients were male, with a mean age of 72-years-old. The mean cross-clamping time was 48 minutes, with a mean cardiopulmonary time of 61 minutes. The mean time of ICU stay was 4 days. All the patients had follow-up 1 and 3 months after discharge and were doing well. CONCLUSIONS: The rapid deployment aortic valves have recognized advantages in aortic valve replacement. Our small experience reinforces that replacement the ascending aortic and aortic valve with this prothesis is one procedure that can benefits from generalization without increased risks and with potentially better clinical outcomes. Larger cohort studies would allow clarification over this subject.

RESUMO

Alkaptonuria is a rare genetic disorder related to tyrosine metabolism. The cardiovascular manifestations are rare being the aortic stenosis the most commonly reported. We present a case of 72-year-old women who underwent aortic valve replacement with intraoperative findings in the aortic valve and the aortic wall suggestive of Cardiac Ochronosis. Once it is a rare disease there are issues related to the natural history of the disorder that still unknown, namely the type of aortic prothesis in use. For this reason, we find essential the documentation and follow-up of all these rare cases.

RESUMO

The main aims of the CoLaus/PsyCoLaus cohort study are to better understand: 1) the personal, biologic, genetic end environmental determinants of cardiovascular risk factors and diseases, and 2) the existing association of mental disorders with cardiovascular diseases. The study was initiated in 2003 and over 6700 participants from the city of Lausanne were include and very rich phenotypic data were collected making the study unique worldwide. Numerous scientific articles were published in various fields such as epidemiology, public health, genetic, social and environmental determinants of cardiovascular diseases and their association with mental health. We briefly present here some key results obtained over the last 16 years.
