CONTEXT/OBJECTIVE The objective of the study was to evaluate the effects of normalizing glycemia through iv insulin per 24 h on markers of oxidative stress and inflammation in patients with diabetes submitted to percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) with stent. PATIENTS/METHODS This was a prospective, open-label, randomized controlled trial, comparing(More)
BACKGROUND Although coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) is a good alternative therapy in severe arterial disease, it may evolve with complications, especially infections. OBJECTIVES To determine the incidence of infection in post-CABG and its clinical predictors in a cardiology reference center in Brazil. METHODS Cohort study. Data were collected(More)
Vitamin D deficiency is frequent among patients with heart failure (HF) and diabetes, disorders associated with exercise intolerance and muscle weakness. This study aims to search for associations between vitamin D sufficiency and physical function indexes in patients with HF and diabetes. A cross-sectional study of 146 HF patients, 39.7% with diabetes, at(More)
BACKGROUND Drug-eluting stents have been used in daily practice since 2002, with the clear advantages of reducing the risk of target vessel revascularization and an impressive reduction in restenosis rate by 50%-70%. However, the occurrence of a late thrombosis can compromise long-term results, particularly if the risks of this event were sustained. In this(More)
BACKGROUND This study was conducted among individuals with diabetes and hypertension in order to assess the prevalence of erectile dysfunction (ED) and the association between ED and cardiovascular risk variables such as echocardiographic changes. METHODS We evaluated 114 men with type 2 diabetes mellitus and hypertension. ED was assessed by International(More)
We assessed the association between adherence to antihypertensive drug treatment and patient's perception of uncontrolled blood pressure (BP) in diabetic hypertensive subjects. This was a cross-sectional study that evaluated adherence to antihypertensives (Morisky questionnaire), patients' perception of abnormal BP, office BP, and ambulatory BP monitoring(More)
OBJECTIVE To describe clinical/laboratory features of patients undergoing coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) in a cardiology reference center. METHODS Cohort study; data from patients undergoing CABG (January 2004 to February 2006, n = 717) were evaluated for clinical/laboratory features before, during and after surgery (infections, duration of hospital(More)
BACKGROUND The association between hypertensive phenotypes of controlled hypertension (CH), white-coat effect (WCE), masked uncontrolled hypertension (MUH) and sustained hypertension (SH) with target organ damage have not been clearly established in diabetic hypertensive treated patients. The present study aims to evaluate the prevalence of the four(More)
AIMS The aim of this study was to determine the rate of major clinical events and its determinants in patients with previous cardiovascular event or not, and with or without diabetes from a middle-income country. METHODS REACT study is a multicenter registry conducted between July 2010 and May 2013 in Brazil. Patients were eligible if they were over(More)
BACKGROUND Blood pressure (BP) variability is associated with target organ damage in hypertension and diabetes. The 24 h ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (24 h-ABPM) has been proposed as an evaluation for BP variability using several indexes [standard deviation (SD) of mean BP, coefficient of variation (CV), BP variation over time (time-rate index)].
