Ascending aortic dilatation (AAD) affects a significant percentage of subjects over 55 years of age and causes a high mortality, and more than 80% of cases of AAD are not associated with a previously detected hereditary syndrome. There is a real need to learn more about its etiopathogenesis in order to help prevent it. The methodology used by us to address the role of norepinephrine in the genesis and progression of AAD was systematic review. The hallmark histological features of aortic disease ...

The pulmonic valve is the least commonly involved valve in infective endocarditis. Pulmonic valve endocarditis is usually associated with tricuspid valve endocarditis, and isolated pulmonic valve endocarditis is exceedingly rare. The predisposing factors for developing pulmonic valve endocarditis include a congenitally anomalous pulmonic valve, intravenous drug abuse, and the presence of indwelling intravenous or flow-directed pulmonary artery catheters. More cases of group B streptococcus endoc...

: BACKGROUND AND AIM OF THE STUDY: Sutureless aortic bioprosthetic valves have become an alternative to conventional bioprostheses in high surgical risk cases. A significant decline in platelet count during the immediate postoperative period was observed in cases of Perceval S sutureless aortic valve implantation. The study aim was to determine how the reduction in platelet count after Perceval S prosthesis implantation compared to that after other bioprosthesis implants. METHODS: Between July 2...

Heart failure, characterized by the reduction in left and /or right ventricular function, is the most common cause of mortality and morbidity in almost around the world. This syndrome is induced by β1-adrenergic receptor (β1-AR) desensitization, which in turn is caused by the reduction in cellular cAMP concentration. Cellular cAMP concentration is modulated by adenylyl cyclases (ACs), a family of enzymes that are strongly activated by intracellular magnesium and circulating levels of the stress-...

Encouraging results were obtained by using left ventricular assist devices (LVADs) in patients with end-stage heart failure (HF) that exhibits extremely high mortality and who were not candidates for heart transplantation. By using this so-called destination therapy (DT), a substantial percentage of these patients achieved sufficient improvement in cardiac function to permit the explantation of the device. The combination of mechanical and pharmacological therapy increased the frequency and dura...

Abstract We describe a 33-year-old male with angina pectoris who was found to have abnormal origin and course of right coronary artery from left aortic cusp. The abnormal origin was identified by conventional coronary angiography but the abnormal course of the vessel between ascending aorta and the main pulmonary artery was precisely delineated by high resolution CT angiography. Patient underwent successful surgical transposition of the anomalous vessel with complete resolution of symptoms.

Secondary hypertension affects a small but significant number of the hypertensive population and, unlike primary hypertension, is a potentially curable condition. The determinant for workup is dependent on the index of suspicion elicited during patient examination and treatment. Specific testing is available and must be balanced depending on the risk and cost of the workup and treatment with the benefits obtained if the secondary cause is eliminated. This article reviews common manifestations, w...
