Cardio-Oncology Rehabilitation to Manage Cardiovascular Outcomes in Cancer Patients and Survivors: A Scientific Statement From the American Heart Association.

Circulation 2019 Apr 8:CIR0000000000000679. Epub 2019 Apr 8.

Cardiovascular disease is a competing cause of death in patients with cancer with early-stage disease. This elevated cardiovascular disease risk is thought to derive from both the direct effects of cancer therapies and the accumulation of risk factors such as hypertension, weight gain, cigarette smoking, and loss of cardiorespiratory fitness. Effective and viable strategies are needed to mitigate cardiovascular disease risk in this population; a multimodal model such as cardiac rehabilitation may be a potential solution. Read More

Effect of irradiation with intravascular laser on the hemodynamic variables of hypertensive patients: Study protocol for prospective blinded randomized clinical trial.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2019 Apr;98(14):e15111

Post Graduate Program in Biophotonics, Nove de Julho University (UNINOVE), São Paulo, Brazil.

Background: High blood pressure (HBP) is a multifactorial clinical condition, with a high morbidity and mortality rate and low rates of control. Due to its high prevalence, it is necessary to search for methods which aim to improve the quality of life of hypertensive patients. Studies have shown that low level laser therapy (LLLT) is capable of inducing a photobiological response within the cells which modifies the micro and macrovascular response; this accompanies evidence showing the systemic effects of intravascular laser irradiation of blood (ILIB).

Methotrexate therapy impacts on red cell distribution width and its predictive value for cardiovascular events in patients with rheumatoid arthritis.

BMC Rheumatol 2018 7;2. Epub 2018 Mar 7.

1Department of Internal Medicine II, Infectious Diseases, Immunology, Rheumatology, Pneumology, Medical University of Innsbruck, Anichstr. 35, A-6020 Innsbruck, Austria.

Background: Methotrexate (MTX) is well known to affect folic acid metabolism, so MTX treatment can result in alterations of mean corpuscular volume (MCV), which may impact on red cell distribution width (RDW), as MCV levels feed into RDW calculation. We thus questioned whether RDW levels and subsequently its diagnostic utility in RA subjects, as reported before, are influenced by ongoing MTX therapy.We assessed the impact of disease modifying drug (DMARD) treatment, especially MTX, on RDW and evaluated their influence on the predictive value of RDW for cardiovascular (CV) events in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA).

VEGF antagonism attenuates cerebral ischemia/reperfusion-induced injury via inhibiting endoplasmic reticulum stress-mediated apoptosis.

Biol Pharm Bull 2019 Mar 2. Epub 2019 Mar 2.

Department of Ultrasound, The First People's Hospital of Yunnan Province.

Endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress-mediated apoptosis pathway is considered to play a vital role in mediating stroke and other cerebrovascular diseases. Previous studies have showed that vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) antagonism reduced cerebral ischemic/reperfusion (CI/R) damage, but whether attenuation of ER stress-induced apoptosis is contributing to its mechanisms remains elusive. Our study aimed to investigate the protective effect of VEGF antagonism on CI/R-induced injury. Read More

A comparison of heparinised and non-heparinised normal saline solutions for maintaining the patency of arterial pressure measurement cannulae after heart surgery.

J Cardiothorac Surg 2019 Feb 26;14(1):39. Epub 2019 Feb 26.

Department of Cardio-Thoracic Surgery, Nanjing Drum Tower Hospital, the Affiliated Hospital of Nanjing University Medical School, Nanjing, 210008, Jiangsu, China.

Background: Heparinized solution (HS) use for the maintenance of arterial cannulas has been associated with coagulation disorders and has not been conclusively shown to confer additional benefits over normal saline (NS) alone. We tested the hypothesis that in adult patients admitted to the cardiac ICU (T0) after cardiac surgery, HS arterial cannulas might be independently associated with increased heparin-induced coagulation disorders and might not be superior to NS arterial cannulas in reducing arterial cannula occlusion.

Methods: In this cohort study, 170 patients who received NS arterial cannulas during the period from T0 to ICU discharge were included in this study from June 1, 2017, to May 1, 2018 (NS group). Read More
