Abstract Background and aims One of the objectives of the ESC-EORP EUROASPIRE V survey is to determine how well European guidelines on the management of dyslipidaemias are implemented in coronary patients. Methods Standardized methods were used by trained technicians to collect information on 7824 patients from 130 centers in 27 countries, from the medical records and at a visit at least 6 months after hospitalization for a coronary event. All lipid measurements were performed in one central lab...

Background: There is an increased risk for coronary artery disease (CAD) at modestly elevated levels of blood glucose which is still below the present threshold for type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). In the present study, we aimed to define impaired glucose tolerance (IGT) and T2DM in patients with stable CAD and observe the relationship between clinical and laboratory findings. Materials and Methods: A total of 132 patients who had stable CAD and who had not been diagnosed as glucose intolerance ...
Trimetazidine is a well-known, clinically effective antianginal agent recommended by guidelines for the treatment of stable angina pectoris. There is also substantial evidence for its benefit in patients with heart failure. Natriuretic peptides are markers of myocardial load and findings from recent studies suggest that trimetazidine treatment has a positive effect on this neurohormonal pathway in patients with ischemic heart disease or heart failure.

PP-333 Our purpose was to investigate the relationship between the prevalence of glucose intolerance and type 2 diabetes with cardiometabolic risk factors in patients with asymptomatic coronary artery disease. 132 patients who had not been previously diagnosed with glucose intolerance or diabetes

Background Risks for coronary heart disease (CHD) and diabetes (T2DM) of the ‘hypertriglyceridemic waist’ phenotype (HtgW) warrant further investigation. We studied this issue and whether partial proinflammatory conversion of apolipoprotein (apo) A-I by lipoprotein(a) [Lp(a)] is a codeterminant. Materials and Methods In a population-based prospective study, 1328 Turkish adults were analysed in four groups by the presence of abdominal obesity and elevated triglycerides (Htg). Results LDL-choleste...

The aim of this study was to examine the relationship between APOA4 gene T347S polymorphism with obesity measures and serum lipids in Turkish adults. Randomly selected sample of 1,554 adults (754 men, mean age 50.4 ± 11.9 years and 800 women, mean age 49.6 ± 11.8 years) were included in the study. 346 Women (43.2 %) were postmenopausal. Genotyping was performed by using hybridization probes in real-time PCR. Not men but postmenopausal women, carrying the S347 allele, were associated with 1.5 kg/...
