Cardiovascular diseases are the number one cause of death globally. A number of medicinal plants have shown their beneficial effect on cardiovascular system. The study investigated the cardioprotective potential of aqueous C. albidium pulp extract on isoproterenol-induced cardiotoxicity. The extract of C. albidum was screened for the presence of phytochemicals and the concentrations of phenolics and total flavonoids were also evaluated. Male wistar rats (30) were equally grouped into five. Group...
Background: Syncope is a symptom complex comprising of a brief loss of consciousness leading to a transient decrease in cerebral blood flow that resolves completely. 2D-transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) is a useful tool to detect underlying structural heart disease, which can lead to syncope, e.g., aortic stenosis, atrial masses. This study aimed to find the subgroups of patients with syncope who would benefit the most from a TEE. Methods: We did a retrospective chart review of all patients a...
There is a large number of systems and technique patterns that deal with the extracorporeal circulation technique to reduce the biologic impact of the system. Nevertheless, there is no such thing as an evaluation quality score of the pathophysiology of the CPB cardiopulmonary bypass, as our world consists of a wide range of variants of the extracorporeal circulation, which are not provided with a quality yardstick.This work seeks to create a quality score, aiming at measuring the extra-corporeal...
Background: The effect of donor hypertension on the blood pressure of renal transplant recipients and the allograft outcomes are unclear. The aim of this study was to summarize the evidence about the effects of donor hypertension on renal transplant recipients’ blood pressure, renal allograft outcomes and mortality. Methods: Studies published from January 1960 to 31 January 2019 in English were identified through a systematic search of six databases; PubMed, Embase, SCOPUS, Web of Science, Cochr...
Purpose: To evaluate immediate and long-term clinical results of percutaneous mitral commissurotomy (PMC) in patients with severe mitral stenosis. Methods: In a retrospective study, data were included from 317 patients over 18 years of age (mean age 45) who had been treated for mitral stenosis between January 1993 and March 2015 with PMC using the Inoue balloon technique. Immediate results: Valvular function improved as evidenced by an increase in mitral valve area from 1.01 ± 0.24 cm2 to 2 ± 0....
Background: Tetralogy of Fallot is one of the most common congenital heart diseases in which four important cardiovascular defects. Pulmonary valve regurgitation (PVR) after TOF surgery is one of the indications for its replacement which is carried out with two surgical methods, on-pump surgery with and without cardiac arrest. Objective: The aim of this study was to compare the results of the pulmonary valve replacement surgery with and without cardiac arrest. Materials and methods: In this retr...
