BACKGROUND Microvascular damage of skin and internal organs is a hallmark of systemic sclerosis (SSc). Serum uric acid (UA) represents a marker of inflammation and endothelial dysfunction. The aims of this study were to evaluate the correlation between serum UA and intrarenal arterial stiffness evaluated by Doppler ultrasound in SSc patients with normal(More)
Raynaud phenomenon (RP) is the hallmark of Systemic Sclerosis (SSc). Visceral RP has also been proposed in SSc patients. Cardiac Raynaud's phenomenon (C-RP) was evaluated in a few clinical studies both as cold-induced transient myocardial ischaemia and as presence of advanced myocardial fibrosis and contraction band necrosis in autopsied patients. Until(More)
OBJECTIVES In systemic sclerosis (SSc) patients pulmonary vasculopathy (PV) is present in the early stage of disease and impairs dilation of affected pulmonary blood vessels, impeding pulmonary blood flow during exercise. Abnormal gas exchange findings were early investigated by cardiopulmonary exercise test (CPET). METHODS A total of 34 female and 6 male(More)
BACKGROUND Pulmonary hypertension (PH) in patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) has been investigated in a small number of studies. Purpose of this study was to assess the prevalence and its association with outcome in a population of consecutive HCM outpatients. METHODS We retrospectively analyzed data of 361 consecutive HCM outpatients in whom(More)
BACKGROUND Cardiorenal syndrome type 5 (CRS-5) includes a group of conditions characterized by a simultaneous involvement of the heart and kidney in the course of a systemic disease. Systemic sclerosis (SSc) is frequently involved in the etiology of acute and chronic CRS-5 among connective tissue diseases. In SSc patients, left ventricular mass (LVM) can be(More)
