The relationship of plasma catestatin concentrations with metabolic and vascular parameters in untreated hypertensive patients: Influence on high-density lipoprotein cholesterol
(Turkish Soc Cardiology, 2015)
Objective: Catestatin has several cardiovascular actions, in addition to diminished sympatho-adrenal flow. Decreased plasma catestatin levels may reflect a predisposition for the development of hypertension and metabolic ...
Hair whitening and obesity are independently related to ascending aorta dilatation in young-middle aged men
(Kare PUBL, 2019)
OBJECTIVE: Hair whitening (HW) is strongly linked with aging. Ascending aortic dilation (AAD) and HW share common etiologic factors. We investigated the association of HW with ascending aortic diameters. METHODS: Our study ...
Epicardial adipose tissue is independently associated with increased left ventricular mass in untreated hypertensive patients: An observational study
Amaç: Epikardiyal adipoz doku (EAD) çeşitli enflamatuvar mediyatörler ve büyüme faktörleri salarak miyokart ve vücut üzerine endokrin ve parakrin etkilere sahiptir. Bu çalışmada hipertansiyonlu (HT) hastalarda EAD ve ...
Effect of epicardial adipose tissue on diastolic functions and left atrial dimension in untreated hypertensive patients with normal systolic function
Background: Adipose tissue is the source of many adipokines affecting the cardiovascular system either locally or systemically. Although hypertension is one of the most important factors in diastolic dysfunction (DD), the ...
Bilirubin level is associated with left ventricular hypertrophy independent of blood pressure in previously untreated hypertensive patients
(Korean Soc Cardiology, 2014)
Background and Objectives: Left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH), a sign of subclinical cardiovascular disease, is an important predictor of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. the aim of our study was to determine the ...
Increased circulating soluble CD40 levels in patients with slow coronary flow phenomenon: an observational study
Amaç: Koroner yavaş akım (KYA) epikardiyal koroner arterlerin obstrüktif hastalık olmaksızın yavaş dolması ile karakterize bir durumdur. CD40/ CD40 ligandı (CD40L) sistemi artmış enflamasyon ve protrombotik yatkınlık ...
Plasma catestatin concentration is independently correlated with high-density lipoprotein cholesterol levels in untreated hypertensive patients
(Elsevier Science Inc, 2013)
Purpose Catestatin (CST), a novel peptide derived from Chromogranin A, has diverse cardiovascular actions in addition to diminished sympathoadrenal flow. We intended to investigate metabolic and vascular associations of CST.
Premature hair whitening ıs an independent predictor of carotid ıntıma-media thickness in young and middle-aged men
(Elsevier Ireland Ltd, 2013)
Aim: Psoriasis is a chronic systemic inflammatory disease in which abnormally over-activated cellular mainly T cell mediated inflammatory response observed. Currently psoriasis is being reported to be associated with ...
