Introduction: Overhydration is the main contributory factor of left ventricular hypertrophy and closely associated with cardiovascular events in end stage renal disease (ESRD) patients. The aim of this prospective-study was to investigate the impact of strict salt and volume control on hypertension and cardiac condition in ESRD patients. Methods: A total of 12 peritoneal dialysis (PD) and 15 prevalent hemodialysis (HD) patients were enrolled. All patients either PD or HD were allocated to intervention of strict salt restriction according to basal hydration state of empty abdomen in PD and midweek predialysis HD which were estimated . . .by body composition monitor (BCM) and echocardiography. Results: Mean ages were 48.3±16.7 years for PD, and 48.8±18 for HD patients. Extracellular water/height was 10.04±2.70 and 10.39±1.53L/m in PD and HD groups. Systolic blood pressures decreased in PD and HD from 133.1±28 and 147.3±28.5 to 114.8±16.5 and 119.3±12.1mmHg, respectively, (p0.05). LVMI and LAI were not increased in both groups. Conclusion: Strict salt and volume control in ESRD patients after assessment of hydration status with either using BCM or echocardiography provides better management of volume control leading to more precise cardiovascular protection. © 2013 Informa Healthcare USA, Inc Daha fazlası Daha az

Purpose: the aim of this study is to investigate whether P wave dispersion (PWD), measured before, during and after fibrinolytic therapy (FT,) is able to predict successful reperfusion and infarct related artery (IRA) patency in patients with acute anterior MI who received FT. Methods: Sixty-eight patients who presented with acute anterior MI were enrolled in the study. An electrocardiogram was performed before and at 30, 60, 90 and 120 minutes after the start of FT. PWD was defined as the difference between maximum and minimum P wave duration on standard 12-lead surface electrocardiogram. A multivariate logistic regression model wa . . .s used to assess whether PWD was predictor of IRA patency and STsegment resolution (STR) on electrocardiogram. Results: PWD 120 was significantly lower in patients with STR on electrocardiogram (38 patients) compared with those without STR (30 patients) (44.8±11.5 vs. 52.9±10.3 ms; p<0.001). PWD 120 was found to be significantly lower in patients with patent IRA (31 patients) compared to those with occluded IRA (37 patients) (42.3±9.7 vs. 53.5±10.6 ms; p<0.001). Logistic regression analysis revealed that PWD120 significantly predicted STR and IRA patency. A ?51.6 ms PWD 120 can predict an occluded IRA with a 87% sensitivity, ?51 ms PWD 120 can predict no reperfusion with a 74% sensitivity. Conclusion: PWD values, which were higher than 51 ms and 51.6 ms in patients who received fibrinolytic therapy, can serve as a marker of failed reperfusion and occluded IRA. PWD values, in combination with other reperfusion parameters, can contribute to the identification of rescue PCI candidates. © 2012 CIM Daha fazlası Daha az

Background/Aims: The aim of this study was to investigate atrial conduction times and left atrial mechanical functions, the noninvasive predictors of atrial fibrillation, in prediabetic patients with impaired fasting glucose (IFG) and impaired glucose tolerance (IGT). Methods: Study included 59 patients (23 males, 36 females; mean age 52.5 ± 10.6 years) diagnosed with IFG or IGT by the American Diabetes Association criteria, and 43 healthy adults (22 males, 21 females; mean age 48.5 ± 12.1 years). Conventional and tissue Doppler echocardiography were performed. The electromechanical delay parameters were measured from the onset of t . . .he P wave on the surface electrocardiogram to the onset of the atrial systolic wave on tissue Doppler imaging from septum, lateral, and right ventricular annuli. The left atrial volumes were calculated by the disk method. Left atrial mechanical functions were calculated. Results: The mitral E/A and E’/A’ ratios measured from the lateral and septal annuli were significantly lower in the prediabetics compared to the controls. The interatrial and left atrial electromechanical delay were significantly longer in prediabetic group compared to the controls. Left atrial active emptying volume (LAAEV) and fraction (LAAEF) were significantly higher in the prediabetics than the controls. LAAEV and LAAEF were significantly correlated with E/A, lateral and septal E’/A’. Conclusions: In the prediabetic patients, the atrial conduction times and P wave dispersion on surface electrocardiographic were longer before the development of overt diabetes. In addition, the left atrial mechanical functions were impaired secondary to a deterioration in the diastolic functions in the prediabetic patients. © 2017 The Korean Association of Internal Medicine Daha fazlası Daha az

BACKGROUND: QRS prolongation and the presence of QRS fragmentation in 12-lead ECG are associated with increased mortality and sudden cardiac death in the long term. In this study we aimed to assess QRS duration and fragmentation in patients with Behçet's disease (BD). METHODS: A total of 50 patients (mean age 42.7±12.0 years) previously diagnosed with BD were recruited. In addition, a control group consisting of 50 healthy people (mean age 39.4±12.5 years) was formed. The longest QRS duration was measured in surface 12-lead ECG and QRS complexes were evaluated in terms of fragmentation. Serum C-reactive protein levels were also obta . . .ined. RESULTS: QRS duration and corrected QT duration were significantly longer in patients with BD compared with controls (102.75±11.91 vs. 96.99±10.91 ms, P=0.007; 438.55±30.80 vs. 420.23±28.06 ms, P=0.003, respectively). Fragmented QRS (fQRS) pattern was more common in patients with BD than controls [n=27 (54%) vs. n=16 (32%), P=0.026]. Disease duration was longer in patients with BD with fQRS compared with those without (12.67±8.68 vs. 7.09±7.06 years, P=0.010). Furthermore, C-reactive protein level was higher in patients with BD with fQRS compared with those without (6.53±4.11 vs. 4.97±6.32 mg/dl, P=0.043). Correlation analysis revealed no association between disease duration and QRS duration (r=0.219, P=0.126). CONCLUSION: QRS duration is greater and fQRS complexes are more frequent in patients with BD. These findings may indicate subclinical cardiac involvement in BD. Given the prognostic significance of ECG parameters, it is reasonable to evaluate patients with BD with prolonged and fQRS complexes more in detail such as late potentials in signal averaged ECG in terms of cardiac involvement. © 2013 Wolters Kluwer Health / Lippincott Williams & Wilkins Daha fazlası Daha az

Sayin M.R. | Akpinar I. | Karabag T. | Dogan S.M. | Aydin M.

Article | 2013 | Journal of Cardiology Cases8 ( 1 ) , pp.391 - 392

Dual left anterior descending coronary artery (LAD) is a rare coronary anomaly and is divided into six subgroups in the literature according to the origin and course of the short and long branches of the anomalous artery. We present two distinct cases of dual LAD which are distinguished by two branches of equal length from their counterparts in the literature. Learning objective: In our cases a novel dual LAD variant is presented with two main branches of equal length and reaches the cardiac apex. Cardiologists and cardiovascular surgeons should be aware of these variants to avoid misinterpretation of coronary angiography and intrao . . .perative complications. © 2013 Japanese College of Cardiology Daha fazlası Daha az

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.

Sayin M.R. | Dogan S.M. | Aydin M. | Karabag T.

Article | 2011 | Canadian Journal of Cardiology27 ( 6 ) , pp.8.70E+19 - 8.70E+21

An unusual type of food poisoning, mad honey poisoning, is a well-known phenomenon in the Black Sea region of Turkey. Mad honey poisoning can result in severe cardiac complications including sinus bradycardia, nodal rhythm, various degrees of atrioventricular blocks, and even asystole. However, no cases of long QT interval have been reported so far. This paper reports the first case of extremely long QT interval to be associated with mad honey consumption. © 2011 Canadian Cardiovascular Society.
