Abstract Background Despite WHO Framework Convention of Tobacco Control (FCTC) adoption, effective implementation of national smoking bans remains pending in several countries. This study quantified the association of second hand smoke (SHS) exposure and 10-year cardiovascular disease (CVD) among never smokers in such settings. Methods In 2001–2002, a sample of 1514 males and 1528 females (18–89 years old) were randomly selected in Greece. Frequency and duration of SHS exposure (i.e. exposure ex...

Abstract Patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) and right ventricular (RV) failure have a poor clinical outcome, but the mechanisms of PAH and RV failure development are not totally clear. PAH is associated with reduced NO bioavailability and increased endogenous NOS inhibitor asymmetric dimethylarginine (ADMA). Dimethylarginine dimethylaminohydrolase-1 (DDAH1) plays a critical role in ADMA degradation. Here we generated a novel DDAH1 deficiency rat strain using the CRISPR-Cas9 tech...

Abstract Background Guidelines suggest coronary computed tomography angiography (CCTA) should be performed with a heart rate (HR) below 60. Third-generation dual-source CT (DSCT) scanners, with improved temporal resolution, and end-systolic acquisition may facilitate imaging at higher HRs. We determined the influence of HR and end-systolic acquisition on image interpretability and quality with a third-generation DSCT. Methods Patients who underwent CCTA between July 2017 and December 2018 were r...

Abstract Background Trends on cause-specific mortality following acute myocardial infarction (AMI) are poorly described and no studies have analyzed where do AMI patients die. We analyzed trends in 28-day and one-year mortality following an incident AMI with focus on changes over time in the underlying cause and place of death. Methods We identified in the ‘Cardiovascular Disease in Norway' Project all patients 25+ years, hospitalized with an incident AMI in Norway, 2001–2014. Information on dat...

Abstract Objectives In the present study, we analysed the incidence of no-reflow phenomenon, its clinical and procedural predictors, and associated in-hospital outcomes for the patients undergoing primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). Background No-reflow phenomenon after primary PCI is a procedural complication associated with adverse post-procedure outcomes. Methods Data for this study were extracted from global registry, NCDR®, the site of National Institute of Cardiovascular Dise...
