It is observed from Cholesterol level modeling that Cholesterol level is higher for female heart patients (P=0.0013) than male, or at older ages (P=0.0012) than younger. It is higher for the patients with high maximum heart rate (P=0.0877), or having resting electrocardiographic at normal level (P=0.0107), or with thalassemia at reversal defect (P=0.0466) and at fixed defect (P=0.0940) than at normal. It is also higher for the patients having heart disease diagnosis (angiographic disease status) value 0 (meaning less than 50% diameter narrowing) (P=0.0515) than others. Variance of Cholesterol level is higher for female patients (P=0.0265) than male, and it increases as ST depression induced by exercise relative to rest (Oldpeak) (P=0.0095) increases. From maximum heart rate modeling, it is noted that maximum heart rate increases as the Cholesterol level (P=0.0325) increases. In addition, variance of maximum heart rate decreases as the Cholesterol level (P=0.0058) increases. Also from resting blood pressure modeling, it is observed that mean resting blood pressure increases as the Cholesterol level increases, where it is a confounder in the mode

Despite diagnostic and therapeutic advances, coronary artery disease and especially its extreme manifestation, ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI), remain the leading causes of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Early and prompt diagnosis is of great importance regarding the prognosis of STEMI patients. In recent years, microRNAs (miRNAs) have emerged as promising tools involved in many pathophysiological processes in various fields, including cardiovascular diseases. In acute coronary syndromes (ACS), circulating levels of miRNAs are significantly elevated, as an indicator of cardiac damage, making them a promising marker for early diagnosis of myocardial infarction. They also have prognostic value and great potential as therapeutic targets considering their key function in gene regulation. This review aims to summarize current information about miRNAs and their role as diagnostic, prognostic and therapeutic targets in STEMI patients.

Myocardial infarction (MI) is a condition when the heart does not receive enough blood flow due to the narrowing of the blood vessels. It is also known as heart attack and caused by the plaque deposition on the arterial walls. It is a leading cause of deaths worldwide. According to several reports, micro RNA plays a critical role in myocardial infarction (Fichtlscherer et al., 2010). MicroRNA helps in controlling many biological processes and plays a role in health and heart diseases. Depletion of Dicer (a microRNA processing enzyme) leads to various defects in angiogenesis, vessel formation and cardiac development (Van Rooij and Olson, 2007). MicroRNA is detected in blood circulation and therefore can be used as potent biomarkers for cardiovascular disease (Mitchell et al., 2008). These microRNAs are also called circulating microRNA.

The extensive use of plastic and the absence of efficient and sustainable methods for its degradation has raised critical concerns about its disposal and degradation. Furthermore, the escalated use of personal protective equipment (PPE) and masks during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has put us under tremendous pressure of generating huge amounts of plastic waste. Traditional plastic waste disintegration protocols, while effective, pose additional inevitable environmental risks. Owing to this, almost all the used plastic is directly discarded into the marine and terrestrial bodies, causing great harm to the flora and fauna. Plastic has even started entering the food chain in the form of micro- and nano-plastics, leading to deleterious effects. Considering the global need for finding sustainable ways to degrade plastic, several approaches have been developed. Herein we highlight and rationally compare the recent reports on the development of benign alternatives for the sustainable disintegration of plastic detritus into value-added products. Here we discuss, in depth, photoreforming of a variety of polymers to liquid fuels under natural conditions; enzyme-based deconstruction of polymeric materials via microorganisms

We report a unique case, which had combinations of rare findings like 1] recurrence of constrictive pericarditis in a patient who underwent pericardiectomy in the past, 2] calcification of residual pericardium in the atrio-ventricular groove like a ring leading to constriction of mitral and tricuspid valvular inlets, 3] presence of localized air all along the ring in the atrio-ventricular [AV] groove secondary to communicating broncho-epicardial fistula, 4] multiple tuberculous abscesses presented as collections surrounding the cardiac and mediastinal structures. The extensive tuberculous involvement of cardio-respiratory-mediastinal structures, which had a florid clinical presentation, and despite medical stabilization and surgical intervention, patient could not be saved. Indian subcontinent still has tuberculosis as an endemic disease, which involves socio-economically poor people, particulars those work in industrial areas. These combinations of clinico-pathophysiological findings as in our case were not reported in the literature.

Stent thrombosis following percutaneous trans-luminal renal angioplasty [PTRA] for renal artery involvement secondary to Takayasu's arteritis is a serious medical emergency, requiring early detection and urgent intervention to prevent permanent kidney injury. The incidence of renal artery involvement in Takayasu's arteritis is 8–38%. The involvement of the renal artery is identified as a poor prognostic factor as it leads to renal artery stenosis, renovascular hypertension that is often highly resistant to antihypertensive therapy and subsequent, hypertensive emergency and renal failure. We report a case of a young woman who had the complete thrombotic occlusion of the renal artery secondary to stent thrombosis which required an emergency PTRA and the implantation of a drug-eluting stent to restore the flow in a single functioning kidney in the setting of Takayasu's arteritis induced renal artery stenosis.

Dipping of blood pressure (BP) at night is a normal physiological phenomenon. However, a non-dipping pattern is associated with hypertension mediated organ damage, secondary forms of hypertension and poorer long-term outcome. Identifying a non-dipping pattern may be useful in assessing risk, aiding the decision to investigate for secondary causes, initiating treatment, assisting decisions on choice and timing of antihypertensive therapy, and intensifying salt restriction. To estimate the prevalence and factors associated with non-dipping pattern and determine the effect of 6 months of three antihypertensive regimens on the dipping pattern among Black African hypertensive patients. This was a secondary analysis of the CREOLE Study which was a randomized, single blind, three-group trial conducted in 10 sites in 6 Sub-Saharan African countries. The participants were 721 Black African patients, aged between 30 and 79 years, with uncontrolled hypertension and a baseline 24-h ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM). Dipping was calculated from the average day and average night systolic blood pressure measures. The prevalence of non-dipping pattern was 78% (564 of 721). Factors that were independently associated with non-dipping were: serum sodium > 140 mmol/l (OR = 1.72, 95% CI 1.17–2.51, p-value 0.005), a higher office systolic BP (OR = 1.03, 95% CI 1.01–1.05, p-value 0.003) and a lower office diastolic BP (OR = 0.97, 95% CI 0.95–0.99, p-value 0.03). Treatment allocation did not change dipping status at 6 months (McNemar’s Chi2 0.71, p-value 0.40). There was a high prevalence of non-dipping among Black Africans with uncontrolled hypertension. ABPM should be considered more routinely in Black Africans with uncontrolled hypertension, if resources permit, to help personalise therapy. Further research is needed to understand the mechanisms and causes of non-dipping pattern and if targeting night-time BP improves clinical outcomes. Trial registration ClinicalTrials.gov (NCT02742467).

he technique of performing coronary artery bypass grafting has remained unchanged for many years, while the development and improvement of methods for protecting the myocardium during coronary artery bypass grafting in patients with coronary artery disease is an urgent problem of modern coronary surgery. Techniques for performing coronary artery bypass grafting include the "traditional" approach using a heart-lung machine, aortic clamping and cardioplegic cardiac arrest, beating coronary bypass grafting without the use of extracorporeal circulation, and beating heart surgery under conditions of assisted cardiopulmonary bypass. Arrested heart bypass surgery with artificial circulation is the most common technique for myocardial revascularization. However, cardiac arrest inevitably leads to a period of global ischemia, and modern methods of cardioplegia do not always allow avoiding ischemic myocardial damage, especially in high-risk patients undergoing surgical treatment. Beating coronary artery bypass grafting makes it possible to prevent global myocardial ischemia (due to the preservation of native coronary blood flow) and avoid possible negative consequences of cardiopulmonary bypass. The main limitations of this technique are associated with a high risk of developing hemodynamic disorders due to a decrease in cardiac output, stroke volume when working with the heart, and exposure of target arteries.he technique of performing coronary artery bypass grafting has remained unchanged for many years, while the development and improvement of methods for protecting the myocardium during coronary artery bypass grafting in patients with coronary artery disease is an urgent problem of modern coronary surgery. Techniques for performing coronary artery bypass grafting include the "traditional" approach using a heart-lung machine, aortic clamping and cardioplegic cardiac arrest, beating coronary bypass grafting without the use of extracorporeal circulation, and beating heart surgery under conditions of assisted cardiopulmonary bypass. Arrested heart bypass surgery with artificial circulation is the most common technique for myocardial revascularization. However, cardiac arrest inevitably leads to a period of global ischemia, and modern methods of cardioplegia do not always allow avoiding ischemic myocardial damage, especially in high-risk patients undergoing surgical treatment. Beating coronary artery bypass grafting makes it possible to prevent global myocardial ischemia (due to the preservation of native coronary blood flow) and avoid possible negative consequences of cardiopulmonary bypass. The main limitations of this technique are associated with a high risk of developing hemodynamic disorders due to a decrease in cardiac output, stroke volume when working with the heart, and exposure of target arteries.

Coronary artery bypass grafting techniques have been unchangeable for many years, whereas development and enhancement of myocardial protection methods in coronary bypass grafting for patients with ischemic heart disease are still actual issues of current coronary surgery. Coronary artery bypass grafting techniques include the traditional/conventional technique with cardiopulmonary bypass, aortic cross-clamping and cardioplegia, off-pump and on-pump beating heart coronary artery bypass grafting. Coronary artery bypass grafting with cardiopulmonary bypass and cardioplegia remains the most common method of coronary revascularization. However the cardiac arrest inevitably leads to global cardiac ischemia, and current cardioplegias do not prevent ischemic damage to the myocardium in all cases, especially in high-risk surgical patients. Off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting allows preventing global myocardial ischemia (due to the constant native coronary blood-flow) and avoiding possible negative consequences of cardiopulmonary bypass use. The main limitations of this technique are associated with high risk of hemodynamic instability due to low cardiac output and systolic output caused by target arteries exposition. On-pump beating heart technique is a reasonable compromise between conventional on-pump coronary artery bypass grafting, cardioplegia and off-pump procedure. It is a safe and effective technique with outcomes that are equivalent or superior to the outcomes reported for conventional coronary artery bypass grafting in patients with unstable hemodynamics, low left ventricular ejection fraction and in high-risk patients. The literature review presents the results of on-pump beating heart coronary artery bypass grafting.
