INTRODUCTION There is a remarkable increase in cardiovascular disease after menopause. On the other hand, metabolic syndrome as a collection of risk factors has a known effect on cardiovascular diseases. Hormone changes are considered as one of the main relevant factor regarding cardiovascular disease as well as some recognized relationship with metabolic(More)
BACKGROUND Myeloperoxidase (MPO) has an important role in the both processes of inflammation and oxidative stress. It plays proatherogenic role via low-density lipoprotein oxidation, functional inactivation of the high-density lipoprotein and endothelial dysfunction, and seems to be involved in the atherogenesis of coronary arteries. This study designed to(More)
BACKGROUND Immunopathological and inflammatory processes play important roles in the initiation and development of ischemic heart disease. Hence, this study aimed to evaluate the relationship between serum levels rheumatoid factor (RF) and anti-nuclear antibodies (ANA) and severity of coronary stenotic lesions. METHODS Totally 140 patients with acute(More)
BACKGROUND The current study aims to determine the relation between ankle-brachial index (ABI) and angiographic findings and major cardiovascular risk factors in patients with suspected coronary artery diseases (CAD) in Isfahan. METHODS In this cross-sectional descriptive-analytic research, patients with suspected CAD were studied. Characteristics of(More)
BACKGROUND Although the effect of cardiac rehabilitation (CR) on cardiovascular disease (CVD) prognosis has been well-documented by several systematic reviews, none have focused on the effect of CR on metabolic syndrome (MetS) and its related components. Therefore, the present systematic review and meta-analysis was conducted to assess the effect of CR on(More)
BACKGROUND The role of plasma fibrinogen, a key regulator of inflammation processes and increased carotid intima-media thickness (cIMT) to predict metabolic syndrome (MetS) is currently under investigation. We assessed differences in the indicators of cIMT and also plasma fibrinogen level between MetS and non-MetS subjects. We also assessed the role of(More)
BACKGROUND Increased lipid profile after each meal can disturb the endothelial function. The present study assessed the effects of bread supplemented with oat bran on serum lipids and endothelial dysfunction in patients with hypercholesterolemia. METHODS This clinical trial was conducted on 60 isolated hypercholesterolemic patients. The subjects were(More)
BACKGROUND Endovascular coil embolization is an approved treatment for pulmonary arteriovenous malformation (AVM) but it brings high rate of thromboembolic complications with subsequent morbidity and mortality. Hereby, we report two cases of AVM coil embolization and management of their compilations. CASE REPORT The first case was a 57-year-old male with(More)
Introduction: Non-invasive measurement of carotid intima media thickness (IMT) has been noted as a marker for atherosclerosis and can serve as a predictor of cardiovascular events. This study investigates the relationship between carotid IMT and coronary artery disease (CAD). Method: This is a descriptive, analytical cross-sectional study of 300 individuals(More)
ABSTRACT: Decentralized load frequency controller (LFC) for multiarea power system using the state feedback controller based on Imperialist Competitive Algorithm (ICA) is developed and studied in this paper.In this method, an objective cost function is used to design the gains of the state feedback matrix. The proposed cost function decrease the frequency(More)
