We read with great enthusiasm recently published article by Kim et al [1] entitled "Sodium bicarbonate administration during ongoing resuscitation is associated with increased return of spontaneous circulation ." In that study, out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) patients resuscitated in an emergency department (ED) for at least 20 minutes, unles...
Article
Atherosclerotic plaque rupture and subsequent thrombosis are major pathophysiological mechanisms as cause of acute coronary syndromes. Patients with stable obstructive coronary artery disease may live for many years without any cardiovascular events through only risk factor modification and prompt medical treatment. However patients with minimal co...

p style="margin: 0cm 0cm 0pt; text-align: justify; line-height: 200%; text-indent: 35.4pt;"> Severe aortic stenosis is associated with significant morbidity and mortality if untreated. The transcatheter aortic valve implantation(TAVI) is now feasable and effective gold standart treatment option in patients with severe aortic valve stenosis(AS) and...

p style="margin: 0cm 0cm 10pt; text-align: justify; line-height: 200%; text-indent: 35.4pt; -ms-text-justify: inter-ideograph;"> The endovascular aortic repair (EVAR) is the treatment of choice for the majority of patients with abdominal aortic aneurysms(AAA) by supporting endovascular technology. But there are some potential complications during o...
Article
The prevalence of hypertension is increasing among young population worldwide. So there is an interest in detecting prehypertension and hypertension in childhood. We determined blood pressure (BP) recorded at a screening test in a young population. We retrospectively evaluated the medical records including systolic blood pressure (SBP), diastolic b...
Article
Familial Mediterranean fever (FMF) is a disease characterized by chronic inflammation. Atherogenic index of plasma (AIP) is a logarithmic value of the triglyceride to high-density lipoprotein cholesterol ratio and it is a good marker for atherosclerotic heart disease and cardiac risk. In this study, we investigated subclinical atherosclerosis and c...

The no-reflow (NR) phenomenon represents an acute reduction in coronary blood flow without coronary vessel obstruction, coronary vessel dissection, spasm, or thrombosis. No reflow is an important complication among patients with acute ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) undergoing primary percutaneous coronary intervention (pPCI). Th...

Background: Heart rate (HR) recovery (HRR) reflects autonomic activity and predicts cardiovascular events. The aim of this study was to assess HRR in patients with myocardial bridge (MB). Methods: Medical recordings of 93 patients with MB and appropriate age, compared to 78 sex-matched healthy subjects were analyzed. MB was diagnosed via coronar...

Article
Takotsubo cardiomyopathy(TCM) is a reversible cardiomyopathy characterized by left ventricular dysfunction due to transient left ventricular apical hypokinesia or akinesia and basal hyperkinesis following some trigger factors like physical or emotional stressful events and may mimic myocardial infarction especially in middle age females. Pathophysi...
Article
Purpose of review: We discuss the relationship between several factors and the risk of vascular events in patients with Behçet's disease. Recent findings: Behçet's disease, a systemic, chronic relapsing vasculitis, is mainly seen in the Mediterranean area and is typically characterized by recurrent oro-genital ulcers, ocular inflammation, and sk...

Objectives: For the purpose of flight safety, military aircrew must be healthy. P-wave dispersion (PWD) is the p-wave length difference in an electrocardiographic (ECG) examination and represents the risk of developing atrial fibrillation. In this study, we aimed at investigating PWD in healthy military aircrew seen for periodical examinations. Mat...
Article
Background: No-reflow phenomenon is a prognostic value in ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). Monocyte to high density lipoprotein ratio (MHR) has recently emerged as a marker of inflammation and oxidative stress in the cardiovascular disease. Purpose: In this study, we aimed to investigate the relation between MHR and no-reflow...

We greatly appreciate the thoughtful comments by Balta, et al. on our study, which makes two points: first, the limitation use of transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) in defining epicardial fat tissue thickness (EFTT); and second, EFTT is highly dependent on inter-observer and intra-observer variability. We would like to respond to each of the poin...
Article
Background: Cardiovascular diseases, among which atherosclerotic heart disease, are known to be one of the most important mortality and morbidity causes in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Ischemia modified albumin (IMA) is a potential marker that can be used to assess atherosclerosis-related myocardial ischemia. Another frequently used ma...

Background: Plasma levels of estimated whole blood viscosity (eWBV) have been increased by endothelial inflammation. Because there were no consistent data for assessing the eWBV levels for prediction of cardiovascular event (CVE) in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). We aimed to investigate the relationship between plasma eWBV levels and...

Although early device embolization is a well-known complication of percutaneous atrial septal defect (ASD), closure late device embolization is rarely encountered one and the data about the management of it are very limited. Herein, we reported a case of late ASD device embolization into the abdominal aorta at the level of the superior mesenteric a...
Article
Acute myocardial infarction (MI) is a common entity in patients due to the atherosclerotic plaque rupture or coronary embolism. We present a patient who had a mechanical aortic valve and was admitted to the hospital for a sub-acute anterior ST elevation myocardial infarction due to the discontinuation of warfarin. In case of persistent thrombus for...
Article
Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a chronic autoimmune disease of unknown etiology. A major cause of morbidity and mortality in SLE is accelerated atherosclerosis. Endothelial-specific molecule 1 (endocan) is a potential predictor of vascular events and is expressed in response to inflammatory cytokines in endothelial cells. We investigated the...

Dual left anterior descending (LAD) coronary artery anomaly is traditionally classified as four types anomaly by classical coronary angiogram. Nowadays, coronary computed tomographic angiography (CCTA) allows clinicians to understand other variants of dual LAD anomaly. Up to date, 9 types of dual LAD variants detected from not only classical corona...
Article
Background: Pilots are exposed to various physical and hemodynamic stresses during flight. Aortic dilatation may be one of the important consequences of flight-related stress. In this study, we evaluated whether or not variation in aortic diameter was associated with the type of aircraft and the age of pilots. Materials and methods: Medical reco...
