The aims of the study were to examine whether the triglyceride to high-density lipoprotein cholesterol ratio (TG/HDL-C) could predict future diabetes mellitus (DM) in a general population during a 15-year follow-up. The data were collected in 1992 and then again in 2007 from the same group of 711 individuals. Because 24 of them were found to be diabetic in(More)
BACKGROUND Numerous evidence has suggested that either hypertension or atrial fibrillation (AF) is associated with systemic inflammation. Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-gamma (PPARgamma) has been proved to have anti-inflammatory effects and is implicated as a molecular pathway involved in many cardiovascular diseases, such as hypertension. The(More)
The objective of this study was to evaluate high-density lipoprotein (HDL) antioxidative activity and its possible influencing factors in patients with essential hypertension and to investigate the correlations between HDL antioxidative activity and the carotid arterial intima-media thickness (CIMT). Thirty-three patients with essential hypertension and 32(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the correlation between serum visfatin and insulin resistance (IR) in non-diabetic essential hypertensive (EH) patients with and without IR, and to evaluate the effect of antihypertensive treatment on serum visfatin and IR in these patients. METHODS A total of 81 non-diabetic EH patients, including 54 with IR and 27 without IR,(More)
We reported a case of compression of the ostium of left main coronary artery caused by aortic root intramural hematoma after blunt thoracic trauma treated with percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). A 46-year-old man visited our hospital because of exertional chest discomfort and dyspnea for 4 months. He was diagnosed as compression of the ostium of left(More)
This experiment on rats was aimed to investigate the expression of intermedin (IMD) in hypertrophic cardiac myoctye of renal vascular hypertension induced by incomplete ligation of the left renal artery, and so to detect and compare the changes of the expression after administration of Valsartan, Amlodipine and Enalapril respectively. The criterion for(More)
To explore the relationship between apolipoprotein E polymorphism and cognitive function in primary hypertension patients, we collected 200 Chinese primary hypertensive patients. Blood pressure (BP), heart rate (HR), height, body weight, waistline, hip circumference were measured. The Mini Mental State Examination (MMSE) was applied to test the cognitive(More)
