    HDL subfraction distribution and HDL function in untreated dyslipidemic patients

    Mariann Harangi , Anita Szentpéteri , Bíborka Nádró , Hajnalka Lőrincz , Ildikó Seres , Dénes Páll , György Paragh
    Aim: The protective role of high-density lipoprotein (HDL) against atherosclerosis is well known. However, both structural and functional changes of the HDL particles may affect its protective efficacy. Increased levels of HDL-associated myeloperoxidase (MPO) and decreased HDL-linked... Read more

    Is insulin pro-atherogenic at the cellular level?

    Igor A. Sobenin , Varvara A. Orekhova , Andrey V. Grechko , Alexander N. Orekhov
    Aim: This study was undertaken to test the hypothesis that insulin treatment has unexpected pro-atherogenic effects at the cellular level, namely, proliferative activity and intracellular cholesterol content. Methods: Primary cultures of subendothelial cells derived from non-atherosclerotic human... Read more

    New markers of atherosclerosis: a threshold level of heteroplasmy in mtDNA mutations

    Margarita A. Sazonova , Anastasia I. Ryzhkova , Vasily V. Sinyov , Elena V. Galitsyna , Varvara A. Orekhova , Alexandra A. Melnichenko , Alexander N. Orekhov , Alessio L. Ravani , Igor A. Sobenin
    Aim: The aim of the present article was the detection of threshold heteroplasmy level of mitochondrial DNA mutations, above which a patient is at increased risk of atherosclerotic lesions. Besides, this parameter was detected for mutations, in which after reaching threshold heteroplasmy level, a... Read more

    Proinflammatory monocyte polarization in type 2 diabetes mellitus and coronary heart disease

    Nikita G. Nikiforov , Karina O. Galstyan , Liudmila V. Nedosugova , Natalia V. Elizova , Kira I. Kolmychkova , Ekaterina A. Ivanova
    Aim: Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is associated with rapid progression of atherosclerosis. There is no doubt that inflammation is involved in atherogenesis. Recent studies showed the relationship between the development of atherosclerotic plaque formation and the amount of pro-inflammatory... Read more

    Relationship between peculiarities of atrial fibrillation, body mass index and adipokines levels

    Oleksandr Bilovol , Yuliya Shaposhnikova , Iryna Ilchenko , Anna Shalimova
    Aim: To assess the value of body mass index (BMI) and adipokine levels in predicting development of atrial fibrillation (AF) in the general population. Methods: Three hundred and ninety eight patients were examined for the presence of phenotype metabolically healthy obesity (MHO), according to... Read more

    Adipose tissue-derived cytokines, CTRPs as biomarkers and therapeutic targets in metabolism and the cardiovascular system

    Ya-Jing Wang , Jian-Li Zhao , Wayne Bond Lau , Jing Liu , Rui Guo , Xin-Liang Ma
    Increasing evidence indicates that adipose tissue-originated cytokines mediate communication between obesity-related exogenous molecules and the molecular events that initiate the metabolic syndrome and the inflammatory responses in the cardiovascular system (CVS). Adipose tissue-derived... Read more

    An overview of different methods of myocardial protection currently employed peri-transplantation

    Sanjeet Singh Avtaar Singh , Sudeep Das De , Cristiano Spadaccio , Colin Berry , Nawwar Al-Attar
    Myocardial protection is integral to the functioning of hearts in day to day cardiac surgery. However, due to the longer ischaemic times, it becomes pivotal in the management of organs during transplantation. There are many different strategies employed to ensure diligent and judicious myocardial... Read more

    Energetic metabolism in cardiomyocytes: molecular basis of heart ischemia and arrhythmogenesis

    María Sofía Martínez , Andrés García , Eliana Luzardo , Mervin Chávez-Castillo , Luis Carlos Olivar , Juan Salazar , Manuel Velasco , Joselyn Joanna Rojas Quintero , Valmore Bermúdez
    Cardiac muscle contraction is a strictly regulated process which conjugates a series of electrophysiological, biochemical and mechanic events, resulting in the pumping of blood to all bodily tissues. These phenomena require a very high energetic demand both for generating the necessary mechanical... Read more

    Sternal malunion fixation using a Titanium Sternal Fixation System in a diabetic patient. The first of its kind in Scotland

    Sanjeet Singh Avtaar Singh , Massimo Capoccia , Kamal Deep , Nawwar Al-Attar
    Sternal non-union is a rare but serious complication post-sternotomy. It is defined as sternal pain with clicking, instability, or both for more than 6 months in the absence of infection and usually presents in an outpatient setting. It may result in multiple admissions to the hospital for... Read more
