Makale | 2012 | Catheterization and Cardiovascular Interventions79 ( 1 ) , pp.113 - 116

Spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD) is a rare cause of myocardial ischemia. Multivessel SCAD is much rarer than single vessel involvement and acute coronary syndrome remains the most common clinical presentation of a patient with SCAD. It predominantly occurs in association with atherosclerosis or in the absence of atherosclerosis. We, hereby, present a case of spontaneous multivessel coronary artery dissection in a 35-year-old male patient presenting with chest pain and ventricular tachycardia following emotional stress and discuss the etiology and treatment options. © 2011 Wiley-Liss, Inc.

Objective: The present study aims at investigating the association of systolic and diastolic eccentricity indexes with cardiac biomarkers in hemodynamically stable patients with acute pulmonary embolism (APE). Methods: Thirty hemodynamically stable (systolic blood pressure >90 mmHg) patients with APE (17M, mean age 61.67±17.6 years) were included in this cross-sectional observational study. The associations of serum troponin I, D-dimer, brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) and heart type fatty acid binding protein (hFABP) levels with systolic and diastolic eccentricity indices, tricuspid annular plane systolic excursion (TAPSE), myocardi . . .al performance index (MPI), systolic pulmonary artery pressure and the index of the inferior vena cava were investigated. The relationships between parameters were evaluated by Pearson and Spearman correlation analysis according to the distribution of data. Results: Correlation analysis revealed that the most significant relationship between cardiac biomarkers and echocardiographic measurements was in the BNP value. Meanwhile, systolic and diastolic eccentricity indexes were found to have significant correlation with serum troponin I (respectively r=0.470, p=0.009/r=0.310, p=0.095) and BNP (respectively r=0.402, p=0.028/r=0.384, p=0.036) values. On the other hand, elevated D-dimer levels led to statistical significance in none of the echocardiographic parameters. © Telif Hakki· 2013 AVES Yayi·nci·li·k Ltd Daha fazlası Daha az

Patients with aortic insufficiency (AI) may suffer from anginapector is in the absence of obstructive coronaryartery disease. In this study, we aimed to investigate coronary blood flow using the thrombolysis in myocardialinfarction (TIMI) frame count (TFC) method in patients with AI and normal coronaryarteries. The study included 64 patients (Group 1; meanage 62.4 ± 13.2 years) with moderate to severe AI who had under gonecoronaryangio graphy that resulted in angiographically normal coronaries, and 42 patients with a typical chest pain and angiographically normal coronaryarteriogram (Group 2; meanage 58.8 ± 9.8 years). All patients . . .under went coronaryangiography either to exclude coronaryartery disease or to evaluate their coronaryanatomy before aorticvalve replacement. TFC was calculated and compared for each artery, including the left anterior descending (LAD), circumflex (LCX), and right coronaryartery (RCA) in both groups. The base line characteristics of the study groups were similar. In both groups, TIMI-3 flow was present in eachartery at the time of arteriography, and the coronaryarteries were entirely normal. LCx and RCA frame counts and corrected LAD frame counts were significantly higher in Group 1 than in Group 2 (26.4 ± 2.1 vs. 24.3 ± 3.6, P < 0.05; 22.1 ± 2.3 vs. 20.5 ± 2.9, P < 0.05; and 22.5 ± 1.8 vs. 20.5 ± 2.4, P < 0.05, respectively). The TFC method may be used as a marker forcoronary flowvelocity in patients with aortic insuffiency and angiographically normal coronaryarteries toestimate decreased coronary blood flowve locity. © 2015, E-Century Publishing Corporation.

Çelik O. | Demirci E. | Aydin M. | Karabag T. | Kalçik M.

Makale | 2017 | Interventional Medicine and Applied Science9 ( 3 ) , pp.154 - 159

Background: Ghrelin has recently been reported to have beneficial effects on cardiac contractile functions and coronary blood flow. The main purpose of this study was to investigate the role of ghrelin in the pathogenesis of coronary slow flow (CSF) together with endothelial functions. Methods: Twenty-five patients having normal coronary arteries with CSF and 25 controls with normal coronary flow were included into the study. The quantitative measurement of coronary blood flow was performed for each coronary artery using the thrombolysis in myocardial infarction (TIMI) frame count (TFC) method. Ghrelin levels were measured using the . . . enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay method from venous blood samples. Endothelial functions were evaluated from the brachial artery with the flow-mediated dilation (FMD) and nitrate-related dilation methods. Results: There was a significant difference in terms of mean TFC values between the control and CSF groups (p < 0.001 for all coronary arteries). The mean FMD percentage among patients with CSF was lower than that of the control group (5.9 ± 0.8 vs. 10.7% ± 1.1%; p < 0.001). A moderate negative correlation was observed between the FMD percentages and the TFCs. There was no relationship between the TFC and ghrelin levels. Conclusion: Plasma ghrelin levels seem to be uninfluential while impaired endothelial functions play an important role in the etiopathogenesis of CSF. © 2017 The Author(s) Daha fazlası Daha az

Background: Lead-related infections that might develop after pacemaker implantation associated with high mortality and morbidity rates are challenging to manage and pose high-cost. Patients with lead-related infections usually present with fever, chills and fatigue and the treatment can be challenging unless the implant system is extracted. Case presentation: A 66-year old male patient who underwent dual chamber pacemaker and implantable cardioverter defibrillator was admitted to the emergency service with a six-week history of complaints of hiccups and fever. After a detailed investigation, lead-related infective endocarditis was t . . .he diagnosis. The patient was initiated on antibiotic therapy and lead extraction was performed. Conclusions: Patients with signs of infection who underwent pacemaker implantation may present with atypical symptoms such as hiccup. In these cases, imaging, particularly echocardiography, should be performed as soon as possible and the localization of the pacemaker leads and signs of infective endocarditis should be investigated. © 2018; Babol University of Medical Sciences Daha fazlası Daha az

Makale | 2018 | Interventional Medicine and Applied Science10 ( 2 ) , pp.70 - 75

Objectives: The objective of this study is to investigate the effect of comorbid conditions [Charlson comorbidity index (CCI)] on stent restenosis who underwent coronary angioplasty earlier. Methods: Patients were divided into two groups; patients with critical restenosis [recurrent diameter stenosis >50% at the stent segment or its edges (5-mm segments adjacent to the stent) (Group 1; n = 53, mean age: 63.8 ± 9.9 years)] and patients with no critical restenosis [

Aim: This study aimed to investigate the effects of folinic acid and fluorouracil (bolus FUFA regimen) chemotherapy on right ventricle (RV) functions. Materials and Methods: Thirty-four gastrointestinal (GI) cancer patients treated with antineoplastic drugs were included the study. All participants received FUFA chemotherapy protocol for colorectal, gastric and pancreatic cancer (i.e. fluorouracil 400-425 mg/m2 intravenous day 1-5 + folinic acid 20-25 mg/m2 intravenous day 1-5 every 28 days x6 cycles) with or without radiation therapy according to the cancer and patient status. All participants have undergone complete physical and l . . .aboratory examination and complete echocardiographic evaluation including detailed right ventricle functional evaluations before the onset of chemotherapy and 6 months after the start of treatment. Results: Mean RV thickness was 0.49 cm before chemotherapy and 0.62 cm at the end of the treatment (p=0.29). Mean tricuspid annular plane systolic excursion (TAPSE) values were 2.08 ± 0.3 and 2.00 ± 0.39 cm, respectively (p=0.25). RV total ejection isovolumic (Tei) index related to the chemotherapy did not change significantly (0.24 and 0.29, respectively, p=0.07). Also we did not find significant chance in the RV end diastolic diameter, RV end systolic diameter, vena cava diameter on inspiration and expiration. Conclusion: Bolus FUFA regimen chemotherapy does not diminish the RV functions as assessed by TAPSE and RV Tei index in GI cancer patients. © 2014, Hippokratia General Hospital of Thessaloniki.

Makale | 2012 | European Heart Journal Cardiovascular Imaging13 ( 3 ) , pp.251 - 256

Aims: To investigate the atrial electromechanical delay (EMD) duration that is a non-invasive predictor of atrial fibrillation (AF) in patients with Behcet's disease (BD). Methods and results: Thirty-eight Behcet's patients (24 females, 14 males; mean age: 43.6 ± 10.3 years) who were being followed in the dermatology or internal medicine department and 29 demographically matched controls (13 females, 16 males; mean: age 42.6 ± 11.1 years) were included in the study. The inclusion criteria were recurrent oral ulcerations and two of the following features: recurrent genital ulceration, eye lesions, skin lesions or positive pathergy sk . . .in test for Behcet's group. Using tissue Doppler imaging, atrial electromechanical coupling [time interval from the onset of P wave on surface electrocardiogram to the beginning of A wave interval with tissue Doppler echocardiography (PA)] were measured from the lateral mitral annulus (PA lateral), septal mitral annulus (PA septum), and right ventricular tricuspid annulus (PA tricuspid). The mean disease duration was 10.5 ± 7.7 years. The inter-atrial and intra-atrial EMD were significantly higher in the Behcet group than those in the controls (19.8 ± 8.2 vs. 13.1 ± 4.4 ms, P = 0.001; 11.5 ± 7.4 vs. 6.9 ± 3.7 ms, P = 0.02; respectively). The left atrial EMD was similar in both of the groups. However, the P max and PWD values were significantly higher in the BD group compared with those in the controls (120.5 ± 10.1 vs. 112.1 ± 5.9 ms, P < 0.0001; 44.9 ± 10.7 vs. 28.4 ± 5.9 ms, P < 0.0001; respectively). Conclusion: Atrial electromechanical conduction times were increased in the BD patients compared with those in the controls. The tendency of BD patients to go into AF can be easily and non-invasively detected using tissue Doppler echocardiography. These findings may be indicators for subclinical cardiac involvement.

OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to compare the effects of the new generation ß-blocker anti-hypertensive drugs carvedilol and nebivolol on aortic elastic properties which are important indicators of hypertension-related morbidity and mortality.METHODS: A total of 50 patients who had been diagnosed with stage 1 hypertension according to the Joint National Committee (JNC) VII criteria and who had not received any anti-hypertensive treatment were enrolled in this study. Patients were randomized to receive either 25 mg/day carvedilol (n=25) or 5 mg/day nebivolol (n=25) for 3 months at the beginning of the study. Three patients (1 . . .in the carvedilol group, 2 in the nebivolol group) who did not attend 3 month follow-up measurements were excluded from the study. The study was completed with 47 patients (25 women; mean age: 49 ± 9 years). The aortic elastic parameters such as aortic strain (AS), aortic distensibility (AD), and aortic stiffness index (ASI) were measured by echocardiography.RESULTS: Carvedilol and nebivolol provided a similar decline in both systolic and diastolic blood pressures (-12/-7 mmHg, Daha fazlası Daha az
