Thyroxine is synthesized via the iodination of tyrosines (MONOIODOTYROSINE) and the coupling of iodotyrosines (DIIODOTYROSINE) in the THYROGLOBULIN. Thyroxine is released from thyroglobulin by proteolysis and secreted into the blood. Thyroxine is peripherally deiodinated to form TRIIODOTHYRONINE which exerts a broad spectrum of stimulatory effects on cell metabolism.Thyroid Function Tests: Blood tests used to evaluate the functioning of the thyroid gland.Calcinosis: Pathologic deposition of calcium salts in tissues.Coronary Angiography: Radiography of the vascular system of the heart muscle after injection of a contrast medium.

Echo-Doppler measurements of portal vein and hepatic artery in asymptomatic patients with hepatitis B virus and healthy adults. (1/430)

BACKGROUND AND AIM: The aim of this prospective study was to determine the range of various hemodynamic parameters of portal vein and hepatic artery with echo-Doppler imaging in asymptomatic carriers of hepatitis B virus (HBV) and healthy adults. METHODS: One hundred and twenty two healthy adults and fifty-three asymptomatic patients with chronic HBV formed two groups. All participants underwent color Doppler imaging of the portal vein and hepatic artery. A single operator performed all echo-Doppler measurements. The examination protocol included measurements of portal vein and hepatic artery diameter (d), blood flow (BF), time averaged velocity (TAV) and calculation of Doppler Perfusion Index (DPI) of liver. RESULTS: Asymptomatic HBV carriers showed a statistically significant decrease in portal vein TAV (12.8 +/- 6.1 vs 17.5 +/- 8.8), an increase in portal vein BF (411.38 +/- 211.31 vs 327.55 +/- 188.77) and decrease in DPI (0.18 +/- 0.14 vs 0.28 +/- 0.15). CONCLUSIONS: Echo-Doppler measurements of portal vein and hepatic artery can detect significant hemodynamic changes in asymptomatic HBV carriers.  (+info)

Common HBV genotype in southeastern Iranian patients. (3/430)

Asymptomatic hepatitis B infection is characterized as a type of hepatitis in which hepatitis B surface antigen is present in the patient's peripheral blood despite the absence of clinical symptoms. Previous studies have shown that a particular genotype may effect clinical manifestations of hepatitis B infection; hence, the aim of the current study was to determine the frequency of hepatitis B virus genotypes among asymptomatic carriers of hepatitis B.In this experimental study, the plasma samples of 100 asymptomatic carriers were collected and tested for HBsAg and anti-HBs using ELISA. The genotype of hepatitis B virus was determined by the GAP-PCR technique. The results of this study showed that all samples were positive for hepatitis B surface antigen and anti-hepatitis B core antigen was present in 60 (60%) cases. Our results also indicated that all patients had the D genotype of hepatitis B virus.  (+info)

Cardiac risk stratification: role of the coronary calcium score. (8/430)

Coronary artery calcium (CAC) is an integral part of atherosclerotic coronary heart disease (CHD). CHD is the leading cause of death in industrialized nations and there is a constant effort to develop preventative strategies. The emphasis is on risk stratification and primary risk prevention in asymptomatic patients to decrease cardiovascular mortality and morbidity. The Framingham Risk Score predicts CHD events only moderately well where family history is not included as a risk factor. There has been an exploration for new tests for better risk stratification and risk factor modification. While the Framingham Risk Score, European Systematic Coronary Risk Evaluation Project, and European Prospective Cardiovascular Munster study remain excellent tools for risk factor modification, the CAC score may have additional benefit in risk assessment. There have been several studies supporting the role of CAC score for prediction of myocardial infarction and cardiovascular mortality. It has been shown to have great scope in risk stratification of asymptomatic patients in the emergency room. Additionally, it may help in assessment of progression or regression of coronary artery disease. Furthermore, the CAC score may help differentiate ischemic from nonischemic cardiomyopathy.  (+info)

Objective: Although coronary artery disease (CAD) is the leading cause of death in type 2 diabetic patients, it is frequently asymptomatic. Myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) is reported to show ischemia in a significant number of asymptomatic diabetic patients. We studied the prevalence and severity of myocardial perfusion defects in asymptomatic diabetic patients and its clinical impact. Methods and patients: One hundred thirty consecutive asymptomatic patients, aged 35-65 years with type 2 diabetes mellitus and with no history of CAD and no cardiac symptoms were recruited in the study. Echocardiography, electrocardiography (ECG), routine laboratory tests and exercise treadmill test (ETT) were performed and patients with weakly positive or negative ETT underwent Dipyridamole MPI. Patients with positive ETT were referred to coronary angiography. Patients were followed for at least 17 months (mean 21.7 months) and any cardiac event was recorded. Results: We studied 81 female and 49 male patients with
One third of the subjects with CAC scores above the 80th percentile for age and sex and one fifth of the subjects with scores below the 80th percentile were randomly selected to participate in the risk factor analysis substudy. The choice of this particular cutoff point is based on the study of Raggi et al,43 in which subjects in the top 20th percentile of calcium scores had a risk ratio of 20 for future cardiovascular events, and the report by Rumberger et al39 on the sensitivity and specificity of various calcium score thresholds for obstructive disease in men and women of various ages.39 We believed that enrolling a higher percentage from the high-score group should result in a more useful range of observations by reducing the number of subjects with a zero score. The determination of age- and sex-adjusted percentile CAC scores was based on previous analysis of 5000 asymptomatic individuals who had previously undergone coronary screening at our institution, which is similar to the ...
The benefit of beta-blockers in the management of patients with heart failure and left ventricular dysfunction has been incontrovertibly established in multiple contemporary randomized clinical trials (1-5). The recommendation for use of beta-blockers after acute myocardial infarction (MI) is mainly based on studies (6-8) that predate routine implementation of a contemporary strategy of early reperfusion and modern medical therapy, although some observational data suggest that beta-blocker therapy may be associated with reduced long-term mortality after early percutaneous coronary intervention for acute MI (9,10).. In stable coronary artery disease (CAD), there is solid evidence to show that beta-blockers effectively relieve anginal symptoms and improve myocardial ischemia (11), and are therefore recommended as first-line agents for symptom relief in both U.S. (12) and European (13) guidelines. However, the evidence base for the use of beta-blockers to improve prognosis in asymptomatic patients, ...
The frequency of angiographically defined asymptomatic CAD in patients with carotid disease is 40%. Although the prognosis of patients with asymptomatic 1-vessel or 2-vessel CAD is good (annual cardiac mortality rate less than 2%), the prognosis of asymptomatic 3-vessel disease or left main CAD is substantially less favorable (annual cardiac mortality 5-8%). Preliminary data from nonrandomized studies suggest that coronary artery bypass surgery significantly lowers cardiac mortality in patients with asymptomatic 3-vessel or left main CAD. Further studies are needed to determine 1) vascular risk factor profiles that are predictive of asymptomatic CAD in patients with cerebrovascular disease and 2) the prevalence of asymptomatic CAD, especially 3-vessel and left main CAD, in patients with a variety of subtypes of cerebrovascular disease (e.g., carotid disease, atherosclerotic vertebrobasilar disease, cardioembolism, penetrating artery disease, stroke of undetermined cause). If the prevalence of ...

Background: Coronary CT angiography (CTA) is generally not established as a screening tool for asymptomatic individuals. However, it is controversial whether this test may have a role for screening asymptomatic individuals with diabetes mellitus (DM) due to the high prevalence of asymptomatic coronary artery disease (CAD) in this subgroup. Methods: We searched PubMed and EMBASE through May 2017 for studies that reported on the association between findings at coronary CTA and future cardiac events in asymptomatic individuals with DM. Summary hazard ratios for the presence of obstructive CAD (,= 50% stenosis), presence of non-obstructive plaque (, 50% stenosis), segment involvement score, and segment stenosis score were derived using a random effects regression model. I-2 was calculated to quantify between-study heterogeneity and causing factors were identified using meta-regression. Results: A total of 10 studies reporting on 5012 individuals with DM (median age: 62.3 years, median proportion of ...

The beneficial effect of hydroxymethylglutaryl coenzyme A reductase inhibitors (statins) on the progression of atherosclerosis has been noted in individual studies. This may be a "class effect," assuming equivalent improvement in lipid abnormalities. Hecht and Harman compared the effects of atorvastatin and simvastatin on the progression of asymptomatic coronary artery disease (CAD) using serial electron beam tomography (EBT) to determine calcified plaque burden.. Through an observational technique that employed serial EBT evaluation, lipid-lowering agents, and dosing (as determined by treating physicians), 149 asymptomatic patients with no history of CAD who had positive evidence of atherosclerotic disease on EBT evaluation were included in the study. Aspirin use and tobacco cessation were recommended to all patients, along with tight control of diabetes and hypertension. Patients were aggressively treated, resulting in optimal improvement in all lipid parameters. About 50 percent of patients ...
For a more detailed review on this subject, see ref. 48. Before beginning a program of physical activity more vigorous than brisk walking, people with diabetes should be assessed for conditions that might be associated with increased likelihood of CVD or that might contraindicate certain types of exercise or predispose to injury, such as severe autonomic neuropathy, severe peripheral neuropathy, and preproliferative or proliferative retinopathy. The patients age and previous physical activity level should be considered.. The role of stress testing before beginning an exercise program is controversial. There is no evidence that such testing is routinely necessary for those planning moderate-intensity activity such as walking, but it should be considered for previously sedentary individuals at moderate to high risk of CVD who want to undertake vigorous aerobic exercise exceeding the demands of everyday living (49). The prevalence of both symptomatic and asymptomatic coronary artery disease (CAD) ...

Atrial fibrillation is a heterogeneous disorder that is usually characterized by paroxysmal onset, particularly in patients without structural heart disease. Defining biological markers of atrial remodelling would help identify patients at high risk who would benefit most from prophylactic treatment and careful monitoring. Biomarkers of atrial fibrillation progression would be helpful for following patients that present with asymptomatic atrial fibrillation. Notably, the roles of such markers in the pathophysiology of atrial fibrillation must be determined. Some markers may indicate the presence, complications or progression of the disease, while others may be involved in key pathological processes and thus represent novel therapeutic targets. Although a number of markers have been reported as potential predictors of paroxysmal atrial fibrillation progression towards persistent arrhythmia, their usefulness and clinical value need further validation. This report reviews several newly identified markers
33 patients were analyzed, of which 19 (58%) had symptomatic RP (>= Grade2) and 14 (42%) had asymptomatic RP (=Grade1). Age, sex, pathology and stage in patients were similar between both groups. There is no significant difference in forced expiratory volume in 1 second (FEV1) between the symptomatic group and the asymptomatic group (2.23 + -0.60L vs 2.35 + -0.50L, P = 0.296). The symtomatic group had significantly more severe PE (LAV% 10.9 + -8.7% MD -880 ± 21HU) than the asymptomatic group (LAV% 4.4 + -4.0% (P = 0.025), MD -856 + -24 HU (P = 0.002)), respectively. Radiation dose was significantly higher in the symptomatic group (V20 24.6 + -5.1%, MLD 12.9 + -3.4Gy) than the asymptomatic group ((V20 19.9 + -3.3% (P = 0.005), MLD 9.1 + -3.2Gy (P = 0.002)). ...

Glial-neuronal cell interactions at the ventral midline are necessary for the proper elaboration of commissures in the embryonic CNS of Drosophila. In particular, migrating midline glial cells are required for the separation of segmental commissures. During this process the glial cells recognize specific neuronal cells at the midline, they migrate posteriorly along their cell processes and thereby separate the segmental commissures. The gene pointed (pnt) is required for this glial-neuronal cell interaction, as loss of function mutations lead to a change in the migration behavior of the midline glial cells. As a consequence, anterior and posterior commissures do not become separated and appear fused. Molecular analysis of pointed has revealed two differently spliced types of transcripts, which are encoded in a region extending over 55 kb of genomic sequence. In the CNS both transcript classes are expressed in cells of the midline, including the midline glial cells. Sequence analysis of cDNA ...
This concise guide to the often overlooked association between erectile dysfunction and hypertension/cardiovascular disease covers a wide range of aspects of importance to the clinician. It examines the impact of antihypertensive drug therapy on erectile function and explains how the management of erectile dysfunction in hypertensive patients depends on a variety of factors. Different treatment approaches are described, including lifestyle modification, PDE-5 inhibitors and other novel agents and behavioral therapy and helpful therapeutic algorithms are presented. A further focus of the book is the potential role of erectile dysfunction as an early diagnostic indicator of asymptomatic coronary artery disease and a prognostic marker for cardiovascular events. In addition, key background information is supplied on epidemiology and pathophysiology, and the significance of erectile dysfunction in different patient groups, such as the elderly and those with chronic kidney disease, is examined. ...

The University of North Carolina at Charlotte, NC, USA.. Although the elderly compose a significant percentage of the surgical patient population, postoperative pain management for this population has received little attention.1 According to 1990 data, more than 4,000 documents are published annually about pain, but fewer than 1% focus on pain in the older adult.2 Lack of published information and research about geriatric pain results in most patients pain being managed by trial and error.. Considerable evidence suggests that pain is undertreated in older patients. This may be due in part to the misconception that pain sensation diminishes with increasing age or that the elderly patient cannot tolerate narcotic analgesia.3 The perception that older adults have less pain sensitivity than do younger patients is influenced somewhat by the silent myocardial infarctions and emergent painless intra-abdominal surgical events that frequently occur in older adults.4 The research involving pain ...
Bio Dr. Marco Perezs research goal is to better understand the fundamental causes of cardiovascular disease through the study of genetics and epidemiology. His group studies the genetic variations and environmental exposures that are associated with conditions such as atrial fibrillation and heart failure. He has led the studies of atrial fibrillation in Womens Health Initiative, one of the largest nation-wide population-based cohorts. He is currently conducting a large study monitoring for silent or asymptomatic atrial fibrillation in women from the WHI randomized to exercise intervention, and is co-PI in the Apple Heart Study, a clinical trial using the Apple Watch to screen for atrial fibrillation. He is interested in understanding the paradox that atrial fibrillation is less common in African Americans and Hispanics, despite a greater burden of risk factors such as hypertension. As director of the Stanford Inherited Arrhythmia Clinic, he evaluates families with rare inherited arrhythmias ...
Introduction: Studies have shown a substantial prevalence of ischemic heart disease in asymptomatic diabetic patients. However, the relationship of symptoms to ischemia and events is unclear in the modern era of intensive medical management. We sought to identify the effect of symptoms on the prevalence of ischemia by SPECT myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) and subsequent cardiac events in a cohort of outpatient, stable patients with diabetes referred for SPECT MPI.. Methods: The study cohort included 575 consecutive outpatients with diabetes who underwent quantitative, gated-SPECT MPI. Data was prospectively collected and compared using Chi-Square, Kaplan-Meier, and Cox proportional hazards analyses.. Results: The study population was at intermediate risk of coronary artery disease (CAD) or had known CAD (40.3%). There were no significant differences between the symptomatic patients and asymptomatic subgroup in the prevalence of ischemia (21.8% versus 22.3%, respectively, p=0.890) or ...

Based on strong biological plausibility, many have proposed the use of IL-18 as a cardiovascular biomarker. Several studies have shown that higher IL-18 levels are associated with poor CV outcomes in patients with stable CAD and acute coronary syndromes, and with restenosis after angioplasty.12,14-17,34 However, to date, the relationship between IL-18 levels and the presence of atherosclerosis in sizable asymptomatic populations remains largely undetermined. After adjustment for traditional risk factors, our data demonstrate that associations disappear between IL-18 levels and subclinical atherosclerosis quantified by EBCT-determined CAC score as well as aortic plaque determined by MRI. These results concur with the observation that IL-18 levels do not associate with carotid atherosclerosis as assessed by intimal media thickness in a smaller study.19 One hypothesis suggests that traditional risk factors drive the associations between IL-18 levels and CVD. Therefore, IL-18 probably does not ...

Patients with type 2 diabetes are at high risk of fatal and non-fatal myocardial infarction and stroke. There is indirect evidence that agonists of peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma (PPAR gamma) could reduce macrovascular complications. Our aim, therefore, was to ascertain whether pioglitazone reduces macrovascular morbidity and mortality in high-risk patients with type 2 diabetes. We did a prospective, randomised controlled trial in 5238 patients with type 2 diabetes who had evidence of macrovascular disease. We recruited patients from primary-care practices and hospitals. We assigned patients to oral pioglitazone titrated from 15 mg to 45 mg (n=2605) or matching placebo (n=2633), to be taken in addition to their glucose-lowering drugs and other medications. Our primary endpoint was the composite of all-cause mortality, non fatal myocardial infarction (including silent myocardial infarction), stroke, acute coronary syndrome, endovascular or surgical intervention in the coronary ...

We thank Drs. Paraskevas and Giannoukas for their appraisal of our work (1).. The purpose of our study was to analyze the impact of post-procedural asymptomatic cerebral ischemic lesions on diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (DW-MRI) after carotid artery stenting (CAS) on the hard endpoints of death, stroke, and myocardial infarction, which, to the best of our knowledge, has not been done before.. We completely agree that 1 limitation of our study is that neuropsychological testing was not performed. This, however, is very important because it is a matter of debate whether these lesions negatively affect cognitive function. We are thankful to Drs. Paraskevas and Giannoukas for drawing our attention to a small but very interesting study (2) that was published after our paper was submitted. This paper and other only recently published work (3) are important findings admonishing us to take those "asymptomatic lesions" seriously..

Presenter(s): Josh Kidd, Cora Aytona, Chris Chase When a patient presents to a clinician with an apparent musculoskeletal problem, the clinician will aim to direct intervention at the body part they perceive to be the source of the patients problem. Hence, a basic requisite for the successful local management of extremity problems is that the symptoms are emanating from the extremity itself. Clinicians interpret the patients history and examination to differentiate between a spinal source of symptoms and an extremity source. Even though this differentiation process is pivotal in guiding management, it is fraught with challenges. If pain of spinal origin is interpreted incorrectly as a local extremity problem, it can initiate a cascade of poor decision making and inappropriate management. The challenges of differentiating between the spinal and extremity source of pain are compounded by the high prevalence of incidental extremity imaging findings in the asymptomatic population. This may be ...

The ARIC (Atherosclerosis Risk In Communities) study is a prospective, population-based cohort of 15,792 individuals enrolled from 4 U.S. communities: Washington County, Maryland; Jackson, Mississippi; Forsyth County, North Carolina; and the suburbs of Minneapolis, Minnesota. The study protocol has been described previously (12). Participants were recruited between 1987 and 1989, and examined at baseline and at 3 subsequent visits, at approximately 3-year intervals. A fifth study visit was conducted from 2011 to 2013. ARIC Visit 4 (1996 to 1998), at which hs-cTnT measurements were available for all participants, was the baseline for this analysis.. Of the 11,492 participants who attended ARIC Visit 4, we excluded individuals with a history of self-reported CVD at Visit 1 or a CVD event (including prior hospitalization related to HF, validated nonfatal myocardial infarction or coronary revascularization, or silent myocardial infarction by electrocardiographic criteria) at or prior to Visit 4 (n = ...
Cerebral small vessel disease (CSVD) is a common group of neurological conditions that confer a significant burden of morbidity and mortality worldwide. In most cases, CSVD is only recognized in its advanced stages once its symptomatic sequelae develop. However, its significance in asymptomatic healthy populations remains poorly defined. In population-based studies of presumed healthy elderly individuals, CSVD neuroimaging markers including white matter hyperintensities, lacunes, cerebral microbleeds, enlarged perivascular spaces, cortical superficial siderosis, and cerebral microinfarcts are frequently detected. While the presence of these imaging markers may reflect unique mechanisms at play, there are likely shared pathways underlying CSVD. Herein, we aim to assess the etiology and significance of these individual biomarkers by focusing in asymptomatic populations at an epidemiological level. By primarily examining population-based studies, we explore the risk factors that are involved in the ...
The Bartholin's glands are located bilaterally at the posterior portion of the vestibule, distal to the hymenal remnants and are secretory in function. Although not solely so, they are responsible for the natural lubrication of the vagina and vulva and are normally not palpable or visible on examination of the pelvis. Symptomatic Bartholin duct masses are a common presenting complaint in women presenting acutely to a gynaecological department and can present a therapeutic dilemma. Symptoms most often arise when an abscess forms in an obstructed duct, and unless this is draining spontaneously, it may require a degree of surgical intervention. Incision and drainage has proved to have a high recurrence rate and should thus be supplemented with the insertion of a Word catheter or the placement of sutures securing the ductal wall to the perineal epithelium, known as marsupialisation. Other methods of treatment have proved less effective. Less often malignancies can arise from the Bartholin structures

INTRODUCTION: New onset of ventricular fibrillation (VF) in asymptomatic patients with Brugada-type ECG is not frequent, but it cannot be negligible. Risk markers for predicting VF are usually based on results of analysis in symptomatic patients, and they have not been determined for asymptomatic patients. We analyzed ECG markers in patients with Brugada syndrome to differentiate the risk factors for VF in both symptomatic and asymptomatic patients. METHODS: The subjects were 471 patients with Brugada syndrome and we divided the subjects into two groups: Asymptomatic group (n = 326) and Symptomatic group (syncope: n = 122, VF: n = 23 ...
It is abundantly clear that subclinical atherosclerosis in 2 major consequential vascular beds (coronary and carotid) can be detected by noninvasive imaging and such assessment can clearly refine Framingham risk assessment in individual patients and do it better than biomarkers such as hsCRP and lipoprotein-associated phospholipase A2. Large-scale screening for subclinical atherosclerosis would be useful if it is simple, easily available, relatively safe and effective, adds value to prediction leading to better selection of subjects for aggressive treatment and sparing very low-risk subjects unlikely to benefit, and improves compliance and adherence to risk-modifying interventions. The CCS and CIMT fulfill many but not all of these requirements; in particular, the added value of imaging-guided management in improving patient outcomes has not yet been proven using randomized, controlled clinical trials, and therefore, in that sense, to a purist the "jury" is still out. However, we must ...

Coronary angiography is a key diagnostic tool in the management of patients with coronary artery disease. Coronary angiography is used to identify narrowing in coronary arteries and is used for decision support to ascertain the need for revascularization to minimize the risk of myocardial infarction. Various research studies have evaluated trends in the use and results of coronary angiography as key contributory factors to the variations seen in rates for coronary revascularization across the US. For example, a large study by Chan, et al. highlighted that inappropriate revascularization rates ranged from 0% to 55% in different facilities[i]. The use of diagnostic angiography has been advocated in different guidelines to ensure that the revascularization is warranted, however, this approach does not address inappropriate selection of patients for a diagnostic angiography.. According to the American Heart Association (AHA), coronary angiography is not recommended in patients who are at low risk ...
Results Most of the patients were euthyroid (78.4%), while the prevalence of thyroid dysfunction including subclinical ones was 21.6%. SCH accounted for 8.6%, while subclinical hyperthyroidism accounted for only 1.5%. There were more patients with hypothyroidism than those with hyperthyroidism including the subclinical ones (14% vs 7.7%). In euthyroid patients, the TSH level within the normal range was positively and linearly correlated with log-transformed total cholesterol (TC) and triglycerides (TG) (β=0.191 and 0.113, respectively; p,0.001 and p,0.05, respectively). The analysis based on the equations in path model analysis showed that the total effects of TSH on Log TC and Log TG were significant (path coefficient=0.2028 and 0.1138, t=4.5037 and 2.5028, respectively) in euthyroid patients with newly diagnosed asymptomatic CHD. The results of effects analysis showed that the total effects of TSH on TC and TG were 0.1936 and 0.1095, respectively. The direct effect of TSH on Log TC and log TG ...
In patients with a previous clinical manifestation of arterial disease or type 2 diabetes mellitus, the presence of asymptomatic carotid artery stenosis (≥50%) was related to a higher risk of subsequent vascular events, in particular of vascular death. Moreover, the relative risk for any recurrent vascular event was greater when the extent of asymptomatic CAS increased. The associations were independent of age and gender.. To the best of our knowledge, only two other studies examined the prognostic value of asymptomatic CAS in patients with clinical manifest arterial disease. A study of 809 patients with stable CHD showed that asymptomatic CAS of 50% or greater was related to an increased risk of vascular death or MI in a univariate Cox regression analysis (HR=3.4, 95% CI=1.5 to 7.8).12 After adjustment for age, sex, smoking, hypertension, diabetes mellitus, lipid status, and history of previous MI, asymptomatic CAS tended to predict vascular death or MI (HR=1.9, 95% CI=0.8 to 4.5). In another ...
Abstract. Approximately 8 million people have Trypanosoma cruzi infection, and nearly 30% will manifest Chagas cardiomyopathy (CC). Identification of reliable early indicators of CC risk would enable prioritization of treatment to those with the highest probability of future disease. Serum markers and electrocardiogram (EKG) changes were measured in 68 T. cruzi-infected individuals in various stages of cardiac disease and 17 individuals without T. cruzi infection or cardiac disease. T. cruzi-infected individuals were assigned to stage A (normal EKG/chest x-ray [CXR]), B (abnormal EKG/normal CXR), or C (abnormal EKG/cardiac structural changes). Ten serum markers were measured using enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA)/Luminex, and QRS scores were calculated. Higher concentrations of transforming growth factor-β1 (TGFβ1), and TGFβ2 were associated with stage B compared with stage A. Matrix Metalloproteinase 2 (MMP2), Tissue Inhibitors of MMP 1, QRS score, and Brain Natriuretic Protein rose
NEUROBLASTOMA IS THE MOST COMMON, HIGHLY MALIGNANT, SOLID TUMOR FOUND IN CHILDREN. WHEN DIAGNOSED IN ASYMPTOMATIC CHILDREN, THE PROGNOSIS IS OFTEN POOR. HOWEVER, WHEN DETECTED IN ASYMPTOMATIC CHILDREN AS A RESULT OF THE URINE TUMOR MARKERS SCREENING PROGRAM, THE NEUROBLASTOMA IS USUALLY LOCALIZED AND TREATABLE, AND THE OUTCOME IS FAVORABLE. MOST NEUROBLASTOMA CASES HAVE HIGH URINE LEVELS OF HOMOVANILLIC ACID (HVA) AND/OR VANILLYLMANDELIC ACID (VMA). THESE TWO TUMOR MARKERS CAN BE MEASURED ACCURATELY AND PRECISELY BY HIGH-PERFORMANCE LIQUID CHROMATOGRAPHY OR GAS CHROMATOGRAPHY, BUT THESE PROCEDURES ARE NOT PRACTICAL FOR DETERMINING HVA AND VMA IN LARGE NUMBERS OF URINE SPECIMENS.

I have had several lanced, had marsupialization, and finally surgery to remove the cyst wall (supposedly). The surgery was in 1993. I was cyst-free for many years, but I would notice a lump occasionally in that spot. It was painless and never changed size, but would come and go over the years. I went on to have two babies and am now mid-way through menopause. About two weeks ago, I noticed the lump, but it was tender. By the next day, it was ...
Prediabetes" is the term used for individuals with impaired fasting glucose (IFG) and/or impaired glucose tolerance (IGT) and indicates an increased risk for the future development of diabetes. IFG and IGT should not be viewed as clinical entities in their own right but rather risk factors for diabetes and cardiovascular disease (CVD). IFG and IGT are associated with obesity (especially abdominal or visceral obesity), dyslipidemia with high triglycerides and/or low HDL cholesterol, and hypertension ...

Chagas disease, caused by the protozoan parasite Trypanosoma cruzi, affects 7 million people in Latin American areas of endemicity. About 30% of infected patients will develop chronic Chagas cardiomyopathy (CCC), an inflammatory cardiomyopathy characterized by hypertrophy, fibrosis, and myocarditis. Further studies are necessary to understand the molecular mechanisms of disease progression. Transcriptome analysis has been increasingly used to identify molecular changes associated with disease outcomes. We thus assessed the whole-blood transcriptome of patients with Chagas disease. Microarray analysis was performed on blood samples from 150 subjects, of whom 30 were uninfected control patients and 120 had Chagas disease (1 group had asymptomatic disease, and 2 groups had CCC with either a preserved or reduced left ventricular ejection fraction [LVEF]). Each Chagas disease group displayed distinct gene expression and functional pathway profiles. The most different expression patterns were between ...
Febuxostat is a xanathine oxidase (XO) inhibitor indicated in patients with gout suffering from hyperuricemia and is used in its chronic management. Febuxostat is not recommended for the treatment of asymptomatic hyperuricemia. Febuxostat is marketed under the trade name Uloric by Takeda Pharmaceuticals America, Inc., and was approved by the FDA in February 2009.
Cancer screening is an attempt to detect unsuspected cancers in an asymptomatic population. Screening tests suitable for large numbers of healthy people must be relatively affordable, safe, noninvasive procedures with acceptably low rates of false positive results. If signs of cancer are detected, more definitive and invasive follow up tests are performed to confirm the diagnosis.. Screening for cancer can lead to earlier diagnosis in specific cases. Early diagnosis may lead to extended life, but may also falsely prolong the lead time to death through lead time bias or length time bias.. A number of different screening tests have been developed for different malignancies. Breast cancer screening can be done by breast self-examination, though this approach was discredited by a 2005 study in over 300,000 Chinese women. Screening for breast cancer with mammograms has been shown to reduce the average stage of diagnosis of breast cancer in a population. Stage of diagnosis in a country has been shown ...

A total of 130 patients were included; mean age was 53.6 ± 11.5 years, and 53.9% were female. The majority of patients reported no symptoms of heart failure or arrhythmia, but electrocardiographic and echocardiographic abnormalities were common. On CMR, left ventricular dilatation and dysfunction were frequent, and MF was found in 76.1%, with a mean mass of 15.2 ± 16.5 g. Over a median follow-up of 5.05 years, 58 (44.6%) patients reached the combined endpoint, and 45 (34.6%) patients died. MF was associated with the primary outcome as a continuous variable (adjusted hazard ratio: 1.031; 95% CI: 1.013 to 1.049; p = 0.001) and as a categorical variable (MF ≥12.3 g) (adjusted hazard ratio: 2.107; 95% CI: 1.111 to 3.994; p = 0.022), independently from the Rassi risk score. MF expressed as a continuous variable was also associated with all-cause mortality (adjusted hazard ratio: 1.028; 95% CI: 1.005 to 1.051; p = 0.017) independently from the Rassi risk score ...
102 patients in the control group. In prospective study in 98 patients with asymptomatic carotid artery disease in addition to the MRA findings cerebrovascular reactivity was determined by determining the "breath hold index" -a (BHI) before and after surgical treatment. RESULTS: Incomplete Circle of Willis was found in 25% of asymptomatic, 47.5% of symptomatic patients with carotid artery disease, and 59% of the control group patients, where the difference proved to be statistically significant. In asymptomatic patients with incomplete Circle of Willis BHI values were 0.62 preoperatively and 1.01 postoperatively on the side of the lesion. In the case of incomplete Circle of Willis preoperative BHI values were 0.88 preopertively and 1.09 postoperatively in asymptomatic patients. The differences are shown to be statistically significant between the groups before and after surgical treatment. The increase was significantly more pronounced in the group of asymptomatic patients with incomplete Circle ...

Researchers at the University of Washington have found just how easily people infected with herpes simplex type 2 virus, which causes genital herpes, can unknowingly pass it on to other people. On average, the researchers found those "who had had past herpes outbreaks were infectious 20.1% of the time, while the asymptomatic group was found to be able to transmit the virus 10.2% of time." Virus presence was detected "at least once in 83.4% of the people with symptomatic infection and in 68.2% of people with asymptomatic herpes." The authors say the study shows that even people with asymptomatic herpes type 2 "can transmit it to a sexual partner.". This further means that pregnant women with no symptoms can pass on the virus to their babies with devastating consequences for the newborn, including death. Moreover, HSV-2 infection can cause complications in people who have weakened immune systems due to chronic disease, and it can increase a persons likelihood of contracting HIV.. Condom use, drug ...
All the office-based screening calculations assess a patients 10-year risk of developing coronary heart disease. Over the last few years, coronary artery calcium (CAC) imaging, where a cardiac CT scan reveals information about the extent of hardened plaque in the coronary arteries (atherosclerosis), has been increasingly used to further assess a patients risk, particularly those in an intermediate risk category. However, there is a poor correlation between CAC and the degree of narrowing of the coronary blood vessels and its ability to predict which patients will go on to suffer a medical event, although there has been a large amount of data demonstrating its utility in predicting cardiovascular survival over 7 - 10 years. Patients who are without symptoms and assigned to the high-risk group with office-based risk assessment calculations will benefit from intensive risk modification. In asymptomatic diabetic subjects Raggi and colleagues (2) have shown that mortality rates are significantly ...
Aetna National also expanded coverage of CCT in 2017. The coverage not only covers those who are at low-intermediate risk (acute or stable chest pain), but include broad indications such as "Evaluation of asymptomatic persons at an intermediate pre-test probability of coronary heart disease or atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease who have an equivocal or uninterpretable exercise or pharmacologic stress test" and pre-operative assessment of high risk non-cardiac surgery and non-coronary (ie valve) surgery. The policy also covers calculation of FFRct (Heartflow) as well. Vein mapping, TAVR, and calcium scoring. Aetna is the first large payor beyond Medicare in several states to cover calcium scanning. Covered patients include: asymptomatic diabetics over 40 years old, 10-20% 10-year risk, and for pre-CTA assessment to evaluate if coronaries will be adequately seen ...

The main finding of this study is that ED seems to be strongly and independently associated with angiographically verified silent CAD in uncomplicated type 2 diabetic patients at relatively low risk for CAD. Indeed, the study population was represented by diabetic subjects without clinical conditions associated with CAD, such as history of artery revascularization, heart failure, uncontrolled hypertension, kidney disease, proteinuria, proliferative retinopathy or previous photocoagulation (used also to treat severe nonproliferative retinopathy and macular edema), previous stroke, or claudicatio intermittens.11,12. We found that about one third of patients with silent CAD showed ED, whereas among subjects without silent myocardial ischemia, the prevalence of ED was about 5%. In other words, the prevalence of ED seems to be quite 8-fold higher in patients with than in those without silent myocardial ischemia. In addition, it is interesting to observe that in uncomplicated diabetic patients at ...
Purpose: It was the main purpose of this study to investigate the influence of the moistening solution on TBUT measurements in an asymptomatic population.; Methods: An online survey was employed to determine the compliance of Spanish eye care practitioners with the recommended normalized procedure to administer TBUT. For the purpose of examining the clinical relevance of discrepancies from the recommended procedure, a randomized, double-masked, bilateral study was designed in which a micropipette was used to moisten fluorescein strips with a controlled volume of six different solutions, commonly available in the contact lens office, and TBUT was measured in 58 non-dry eye (OSDI , 15) subjects (age from 19 to 32 years).; Results: Results from the online survey revealed that 64% of Spanish practitioners frequently use (or have used) different solutions to moisten fluorescein strips during TBUT assessment. Statistically significant differences in TBUT values were found between the various solutions ...

This weeks View discusses some recent studies on a number of vascular topics, including blood pressure in patients with ischemic stroke, diagnosis and management of resistant hypertension, the plaque burden of subclinical atherosclerosis, and carotid stenting versus endarterectomy for asymptomatic carotid artery stenosis.
The current trend to often err on the side of using endarterectomy or stenting when significant carotid disease is found - regardless of whether there are symptoms - appears based primarily on two large trials in the 1990s. The Asymptomatic Carotid Artery Study and the Asymptomatic Carotid Surgery Trial basically showed the approaches were more effective than medical therapy. For example, the Asymptomatic Carotid Atherosclerosis study showed surgery reduced the five-year stroke risk by more than half in symptom-free patients with significant blockage of 60-99 percent. The original CREST, which started in 2000 and also followed about 2,500 patients, was the first to compare endarterectomy to stenting in patients with and without symptoms of carotid artery disease, and found they were essentially the same in both risks and stroke prevention. But a more current study, the SAMMPRIS trial, comparing stenting and current medical therapy in patients who have had recent transient ischemic attacks or a ...
