6 Dental Biomaterials Research Unit, Head of Clinic, Department of Periodontology and Oral Surgery, University of Liège, Liège, Belgium.

There is some evidence that periodontitis increases the risk of atherothrombosis. Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is a cardiovascular disease with specific risk factors and physiopathological mechanisms that can lead to rupture in the absence of treatment. The aim of the present systematic review was to explore the influence of periodontitis on the progression of AAAs as a specific disease. Read More

Predictive Value of Hepatorenal Status in Contrast-Induced Nephropathy Among Patients Receiving Coronary Angiography and/or Intervention: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis.

Angiology 2018 Dec 9:3319718816206. Epub 2018 Dec 9.

1 Department of Cardiology, Tianjin Chest Hospital, Tianjin, China.

Background:: Low serum albumin, high blood urea nitrogen (BUN), and uric acid are regarded closely related to the incidence of contrast-induced nephropathy (CIN), whereas it remains unclear whether they can function as predictors of CIN onset. The objective of this systematic review and meta-analysis was to explore the association between abovementioned indicators and CIN incidence rate in patients receiving coronary angiography (CAG) and/or intervention.

Methods:: Clinical studies were retrieved from the electronic databases of PubMed, EMBASE, Google Scholar, Clinical Trials, and ScienceDirect from their inception to July 13, 2018. Read More

Predictive Value of Endocan Based on TIMI Risk Score on Major Adverse Cardiovascular Events After Acute Coronary Syndrome.

Angiology 2018 Dec 4:3319718815241. Epub 2018 Dec 4.

1 Cardiovascular Research Center, Tabriz University of Medical Sciences, Tabriz, Iran.

We assessed the prognostic value of serum levels of endocan in patients with the acute coronary syndrome (ACS) through its correlation with the Thrombolysis in Myocardial Infarction (TIMI) risk score and compared the possible association with clinical outcomes. In this prospective cross-sectional study, we enrolled 320 patients with documented ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI), non-STEMI (NSTEMI), or unstable angina (UA) who underwent diagnostic coronary angiography. Endocan was measured soon after admission in the emergency department. Read More
