Aortic diameter and progression to thoracic aortic aneurysm are influenced by several factors. In this study, we investigated the association of alcohol consumption with aortic root and ascending aorta dilatation. In the context of the Corinthia study, we examined 1751 patients with echocardiography. Several demographic and clinical characteristics were recorded. Alcohol consumption was assessed based on a questionnaire of frequency, type, and quantity. Accordingly, patients were categorized as ...

The clinical significance of pleural effusions (PLEs) in the setting of acute pericarditis remains poorly investigated. We sought to identify predictive factors for PLEs and their association with the short- and long-term prognosis of patients with acute pericarditis. We enrolled 177 patients hospitalized with a first episode of acute pericarditis. In all cases an extensive clinical, biochemical, and diagnostic work-up to detect PLEs and establish etiological diagnosis was performed. All patient...

The role of dietary patterns, in cardiovascular diseases has been challenged. The role of breakfast as an element of balance energy intake has gained research interest. However, the effects of dietary patterns related to breakfast consumption on vascular function are unknown. We explored the association of breakfast consumption habits with arterial wall elastic properties and carotid atherosclerosis.In this cross-sectional study we enrolled 2043 inhabitants of the Corinthia region in Greece. Car...

Summary Background & aims Polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) may affect the cardiovascular system with a multiplicity of mechanisms. We assessed the effects of omega-3 PUFAs supplements on inflammation, fibrosis, left ventricle performance and endothelial function of ischemic heart failure (HF) patients. Methods In this double-blind, placebo controlled, cross-over trial we enrolled 31 patients with ischemic HF, followed by a 6-week wash-out period. Omega-3 PUFAs (2 g daily, 8 weeks) were admini...
