The role of urotensin II and atherosclerotic risk factors in patients with slow coronary flow
(Akademiai Kiado Zrt, 2016)
Background: Slow coronary flow (SCF) is an angiographic finding characterized with delayed opacification of epicardial coronary arteries without obstructive coronary disease. Urotensin II (UII) is an important vascular ...
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 ...
Arterial stiffness measured via carotid femoral pulse wave velocity is associated with disease severity in COPD
(Daedalus Enterprises Inc, 2014)
BACKGROUND: Patients with COPD face an increased risk of cardiovascular disease and increased cardiac mortality. Carotid femoral pulse wave velocity (cf-PWV) is a validated measure of arterial stiffness, a well recognized ...
The relationship between epicardial adipose tissue and P wave and QT dispersions
Amaç: Epikardiyal adipoz doku (EAD) kalpte pek çok endok- rin ve parakrin etkiye sahip olan çeşitli enflamatuvar ve atero- jenik ajanları salgılar. Bu çalışmada, EAD’nin elektrokardiyo- gafinin (EKG) basit, non-invaziv ...
Relationship of serum osteoprotegerin with arterial stiffness, preclinical atherosclerosis, and disease activity in patients with ankylosing spondylitis
(Springer London Ltd, 2016)
Patients with ankylosing spondylitis (AS) reportedly have a higher mortality and morbidity risk. Osteoprotegerin (OPG) was recently defined as an important cardiovascular (CV) marker in the general population. We aimed to ...
Relationship of osteoprotegerin to pulse wave velocity and carotid intima-media thickness in rheumatoid arthritis patients
(Springer Heidelberg, 2016)
Osteoprotegerin (OPG) is considered an important biomarker in cardiovascular (CV) disease. CV disease is the most common cause of mortality in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA), a consequence of accelerated ...
