Coronary artery diseases are mostly detected using angiographic methods demonstrating arteries status. Nevertheless, myocardial infarction (MI) may occur in the presence of angiographically normal coronary arteries. Therefore, this study aimed to investigate the prevalence of MI with normal angiography and its possible etiologies in a systematic review.In ... read more

Atherosclerosis is the main cause of cardiovascular disease, which has no effective preventive treatments. Lectin-like Oxidized LDL Receptor-1 (LOX-1) is a major receptor of ox-LDL in endothelial cells and plays an important role in atherosclerosis.This research aimed to determine the role of LOX-1 protein vaccination in inhibiting ... read more

Some mutations of methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) gene cause a decrease in MTHFR activity. Decreased MTHFR activity may, in turn, be associated with increased plasma homocysteine level and vascular disease.This study aimed to assess the effect of homocysteine, MTHFR C677T, and A1298C gene polymorphisms on the extent and ... read more

Distribution of mitochondrial oxidative energy metabolism is a characteristic of cardiomyocyte dysfunction and congenital familial and sporadic heart diseases. Several studies have indicated that mutations in mitochondrial DNA, particularly in tRNAs and MT-CYB coding for cytochrome B in complex III (CIII), were associated with cardiologic disorders. We ... read more

Acute hypoxemic respiratory failure (AHRF) during mechanical ventilation on high fraction of inspired oxygen is an unusual manifestation of respiratory insufficiency after an elective cardiac surgical procedure. A 68-year old man who had developed AHRF during his mechanical ventilatory support after an elective Bentall procedure was reported. ... read more

Isolated papillary muscle (PM) hypertrophy has been supposed to be a phenotypic variant of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. Whether this finding may explain an electrocardiographic pattern of left ventricular hypertrophy has to be demonstrated. A cardiac magnetic resonance imaging may add additional crucial information. Our case was a 26-year-old ... read more
