Do the Different Types of Pulmonary Hypertension Cause the Same Effect on Right Heart and Serum Asymmetrıcal Dimethylarginine Levels in Female Patients?

Synopsis: 
This study aimed to evaluate if the different types of pulmonary hypertension had the same effect on right-heart functions and serum asymmetric dimethylarginine levels in female patients. It was found that pulmonary arterial hypertension caused more impaired right-heart functions than pulmonary venous hypertension.

ABSTRACT

Objective: Right-heart function is a major determinant of clinical outcome in patients with elevated pulmonary artery pressure due to pulmonary venous hypertension (PVH) and pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). Asymmetric dimethylarginine (ADMA) is an endogenous inhibitor of nitric oxide synthase. This study aimed to evaluate if different types of pulmonary hypertension (PH) would cause the same effect on right-heart functions and serum ADMA levels in female patients.

Endothelial Dysfunction in Primary Sjögren Syndrome

Pages: 
870–2
Synopsis: 
In this study, we aimed to investigate endothelial functions in primary Sjögren syndrome. Although carotid intima-media thickness values were similar, flow mediated dilatation of the brachial artery was disrupted in patients with Sjögren syndrome compared to healthy controls.


ABSTRACT

Objective: In this study, we aimed to investigate endothelial functions in primary Sjögren syndrome.

Methods: Thirty-five patients with primary Sjögren syndrome and 20 age and sex-matched healthy volunteers were recruited to the present study. Flow mediated dilatation of brachial artery and carotid intima-media thickness were measured in the study population.
