Oxidative stress is one of the new and most intriguing pathogenetic hypotheses of heart failure; it involves various mechanisms such as endothelial dysfunction, mechano-energetic uncoupling and apoptosis. Xanthine oxidase, a key enzyme in purine catabolism, is overexpressed in patients with heart failure, and it is also an important source of oxidizing(More)
New researches have been performed on the analysis of some Italian dwelling structures dating from the Lower Paleolithic to Bronze Age. Different methods have been applied to each study according to the extensions of the areas explored. The following sites have been analyzed: Isernia La Pineta (Molise), Visogliano (Trieste) - Lower Paleolithic; Grotta del(More)
The burden of heart failure (HF) is increasing rapidly, on account of the aging population and the improving survival of patients with other heart diseases, most resulting in HF. It is further reflected in the associated mortality figures (first year mortality rates 25-35%) and substantial morbidity. The shortterm intravenous acute HF treatment with(More)
Endovascular aortic repair (EVAR) for abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA) is the preferred first treatment option in case of patients with advanced age and/or fit anatomy owing to shorter length of in hospital staying, less complications or laparotomy-related re-interventions, and lower initial costs. Although it is a less-invasive intervention, EVAR entails a(More)
BACKGROUND There is uncertainty about the prevalence and clinical characteristics of heart failure (HF) patients with preserved systolic function (PRESYF). AIM To analyze the prevalence and clinical characteristics of patients with PRESYF in an unselected cohort of subjects consecutively hospitalized for HF. METHODS The study cohort included 338(More)
