  • Precision medicine considerations for the management of heart disease and
           stroke in East Asians

    • Authors: Candida L Goodnough, Eric R Gross
      Pages: 101 - 108
      Abstract: Candida L Goodnough, Eric R Gross
      Cardiology Plus 2020 5(3):101-108
      Heart disease is the leading cause of death in Asian Americans. Importantly, people of East Asian descent are more likely to carry a loss-of-function point mutation in aldehyde dehydrogenase 2 (ALDH2), ALDH2*2, which reduces ALDH2 enzymatic activity by at least 40% relative to wild type ALDH2. Given the role of ALDH2 in removing toxic aldehydes from the cell, ALDH2 is intimately involved in the cardioprotective mechanisms of ischemic preconditioning and the pathophysiology of ischemia reperfusion injury. The ALDH2*2 variant is associated with an increased incidence of coronary artery disease, myocardial infarction, and stroke. Furthermore, this variant is associated with insensitivity to nitroglycerin, which is commonly prescribed in patients with cardiovascular disease. In this review, we discuss the genetic susceptibility and pathophysiology associated with the ALDH2*2 variant in regards to cardiovascular disease. We also present the considerations for the management of heart disease and stroke specific to East Asians carrying the ALDH2*2 genetic variant.

  • Cardioprotective effect of alpha-lipoic acid and its mechanisms

    • Authors: Qin-Feng Hu, Ai-Jun Sun
      Pages: 109 - 117
      Abstract: Qin-Feng Hu, Ai-Jun Sun
      Cardiology Plus 2020 5(3):109-117
      Alpha-lipoic acid (ALA), a sulfur-containing fatty acid ubiquitously present in living organisms, is a cofactor that covalently binds to mitochondrial enzymes, such as pyruvate dehydrogenase (PDH) and oxoglutarate dehydrogenase (OGDH). ALA is not only crucial to the function of major enzymes that provide carbon to the tricarboxylic acid cycle but also has strong antioxidant properties. Indeed, ALA has a variety of properties under physiological and pathological conditions. In particular, ALA has been shown to have a protective effect on the cardiovascular system. The specific mechanisms may involve an anti-oxidative stress role by scavenging reactive oxygen species (an antioxidant property), regulation of aldehyde dehydrogenase-2 (ALDH2), and anti-inflammatory properties. The present review discusses the endogenous disulfide compound ALA, with a focus on its roles in cardioprotection and the underlying mechanisms.

  • Adverse effects of air pollutant exposure on blood lipid levels in adults:
           A systematic review and meta-analysis

      Background: Air pollution is a crucial public health issue, but evidence on its association with blood lipids is still limited and inconsistent. Objectives: To systematically review and explore associations between major air pollutants (PM2.5, PM10, SO2, NO2, and O3) and blood lipid levels in long-, middle-, and short-term exposure durations. Data Source: Databases of PubMed, Embase, and Web of Science were searched for eligible articles published until August 16, 2019. Study Eligibility Criteria: English articles were explored for associations between air pollutants and blood lipids among adults using quantitative measures. Methods: Random-effect models were used to synthesize the association, and I2 value was used to evaluate the degree of heterogeneity. Results: Of the 15 studies that met the inclusion criteria, 11, 7, and 4 records were used to evaluate long-, middle-, and short-term effects. Generally, air pollutants had adverse influence on blood lipid levels, and results were robust across sensitivity analyses. For example, PM2.5 was significantly associated with increased total cholesterol and low-density lipoprotein-cholesterol levels, with a percentage change of 4.53 (0.12, 8.93) and 5.36 (0.37, 10.35) per 10 μg/m3 increment, respectively, in long-term exposure. However, associations with NO2, SO2, and O3 were still insufficient. Moreover, prospective evidence was considerably inadequate. Limitation: We only pooled the association of air pollution with major blood lipids. We were unable to clarify the health effects of chemical components or susceptible population because of limited studies. Conclusions: Ambient air pollutants have detrimental effects on blood lipid levels. Further prospective evidence is highly warranted to demonstrate these associations.

  • Expert consensus on clinical pathway of blood lipid management in patients

      Abstract: Chinese Medical Doctor Association, Expert Group of Clinical Pathway of Lipid Management in Patients with Acute Coronary Syndrome
      Cardiology Plus 2020 5(3):130-138
      Recently, the burden of coronary events in patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS) has increased with a high recurrence rate and mortality. The management of blood lipid levels in patients with ACS is challenging under the current treatment mode. Based on practice experience of domestic specialists and the reference of international clinical practice, together with the evidence of lipid lowering in patients with ACS, this expert consensus proposes suggestions targeting lipid-lowering interventions, commonly used lipid-lowering drugs, and the clinical pathway of lipid management in patients with ACS. This work aims to standardize the lipid management and reduce the recurrence risk of cardiovascular events in patients with ACS.

      Objectives: Percutaneous left atrial appendage (LAA) closure has been demonstrated to be an alternative to oral anticoagulation for the prevention of ischemic stroke in non-valvular atrial fibrillation (AF) patients using WATCHMAN. However, few data are available for the novel LAmbre occluder, especially long-term data. This study aimed to evaluate the feasibility of the LAmbre LAA occluder, over more than 5 years of follow-up. Methods: This study included 66 consecutive AF patients implanted with the LAmbre device from April 2014 to October 2015 in our center. Patients received 3-month dual antiplatelet therapy, and single therapy thereafter. Patients were followed-up until July 7, 2020. Results: The mean CHA2DS2-VASc and HAS-BLED scores were 6.0 ± 1.6 and 3.0 ± 0.8, respectively. The implantation success rate was 98.5%. No death, stroke, major bleeding, or device-related severe events were observed within 7 days of the procedure. Adequate LAA sealing was observed in 98.3% and 98.2% of patients at, 3- and 12-month follow-up echocardiographic examinations, respectively. After a mean follow-up of 67 ± 12.1 months, all-cause death was observed as 2.5 per 100 patient-years (n = 9). Equivalent values for ischemic stroke and major bleeding were 1.9 per 100 patient-years (n = 7) and 0.8 per 100 patient-years (n=3), respectively, both significantly lower than the cumulative expected rates according to risk factors. Conclusions: In patients with AF, the protocol of LAAC with the LAmbre device plus antiplatelet therapy was feasible and associated with few ischemic and bleeding events in the periprocedural period and in long-term follow-up of over 5 years.

  • Cardiac anatomy: The essentials

      Abstract: Siew Yen Ho
      Cardiology Plus 2020 5(3):148-154
      In presenting the essentials of cardiac anatomy for healthcare workers, this article aims to demystify the arrangement of cardiac chambers and valves one to the other. In so doing, it provides better understanding of imaging previously seen in 2 dimensions and in 3 dimensions in the current era. Fundamental to this is the central location of the aorta in relation to all four cardiac chambers. Furthermore, recognition of cardiac chambers is based on distinguishing morphological components irrespective of their location in the heart. Morphological criteria are especially useful in understanding of congenitally malformed hearts.

      Strokes with neuro-ophthalmologic complications after cardiac catheterizations have been reported, with potentially debilitating consequences to patients. We present an interesting case of a 55-year-old male who was managed for new-onset heart failure with reduced ejection fraction. He complained of diplopia and became drowsy immediately after a diagnostic coronary angiogram, a concomitant right heart catheterization study, and left ventricular catheterization. Neurological examination showed that he had bilateral vertical gaze palsy. Magnetic resonance imaging of the brain revealed a left paramedian midbrain stroke. His symptoms resolved within 3 days, and he was discharged well on medical therapy after a period of observation.
