Background: The aims of this preliminary study were to determine the alteration of serum ischemia-modified albumin (IMA) levels and to investigate whether IMA may be used as an indicator of the cardioprotective efficacy of N-acetylcysteine (NAC) in patients undergoing coronary bypass grafting (CABG). Patients and Methods: Forty-four patients were randomized into one of two groups on the basis of cardioplegic strategies, either cold-blood cardioplegia enriched with NAC (50 mg/kg) or cold-blood…

TLDR
Cardioplegia type creates similar effects on glycocalyx integrity, however, myocardial protection could be provided with warm blood cardiopleGia.
N-Acetylcysteine for Cardiac Protection During Coronary Artery Reperfusion: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis of Randomized Controlled Trials
TLDR
Line of evidence support the potential benefit of NAC as an adjuvant therapy for cardiac protection against reperfusion injury and among the nine trials that measured ROS, seven showed a correlation between the reduction of lipid peroxidation and improved clinical outcomes.
Detection of perioperative myocardial infarction with ischemia-modified albumin
TLDR
Perioperative serum ischemia-modified albumin levels might be helpful in predicting perioperative myocardial infarction.
N-acetylcysteine use among patients undergoing cardiac surgery: A systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized trials
TLDR
A large randomized placebo-controlled multi-centre trial is needed to determine whether NAC reduces mortality, and low to moderate certainty evidence demonstrated that the addition of NAC resulted in a non-statistically significant reduction in mortality.
The effect of thiol-disulfide homeostasis in patients undergoing on-pump coronary artery bypass grafting.
TLDR
Investigation of the effects of thiol-disulfide homeostasis in patients undergoing on-pump coronary artery bypass grafting found decreased native thiol and increased disulfide levels during ischemic period may be predictive of postoperative atrial fibrillation.
Is the Measurement of Serum Ischemia-Modified Albumin the Best Test to Diagnose Ovarian Torsion?
TLDR
The elevated serum IMA levels with high sensitivity-specificity values observed in women with ovarian torsion seem to have a potential role as a serum marker in the preoperative diagnosis of ovarian tORSion in emergency settings.
Cord blood oxidative stress markers correlate with umbilical artery pulsatility in fetal growth restriction
TLDR
The correlation between cord blood OSM and Doppler blood flow changes shown in this study may contribute to understanding the underlying oxidative stress-related mechanisms.
[Anti-inflammatory efficacy of N-acetylcysteine and therapeutic usefulness].
TLDR
In humans NAC had been proven to improve idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, various forms of alveolitis and to avoid hepatoxic effects of paracetamol and paraquate through binding these compounds enabling biliary excretion.
Grundlagen der antiinflammatorischen Wirkung von N-Acetylcystein und dessen therapeutische Einsatzmöglichkeiten
TLDR
In humans NAC had been proven to improve idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, various forms of alveolitis and to avoid hepatoxic effects of paracetamol and paraquate through binding these compounds enabling biliary excretion.

N‐Acetylcysteine as an additive to crystalloid cardioplegia increased oxidative stress capacity in CABG patients
TLDR
NAC increased tissue capacity against oxidative stress and decreased inflammatory response in CABG patients with normal ejection fraction.
Ischemia Modified Albumin Is a Sensitive Marker of Myocardial Ischemia After Percutaneous Coronary Intervention
TLDR
Ischemia modified albumin (IMA) is a more consistent marker of ischemia than iP in patients who develop chest pain and ST segment changes during PCI.
Effect of N-acetylcysteine on oxidative stress and ventricular function in patients with myocardial infarction
TLDR
It was demonstrated that administration of NAC in combination with streptokinase significantly diminished oxidative stress and improved LV function in patients with acute MI, and would justify the performance of a larger controlled study.
Reduced albumin-cobalt binding with transient myocardial ischemia after elective percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty: a preliminary comparison to creatine kinase-MB, myoglobin, and troponin I.
TLDR
Preliminary results suggest that human albumin undergoes a significant reduction in its capacity to bind exogenous cobalt soon after transient coronary occlusion during human PTCA and before significant elevations of CK-MB, myoglobin, or cTn-I.
N-Acetylcysteine for Preventing Pump-Induced Oxidoinflammatory Response During Cardiopulmonary Bypass
TLDR
N-Acetylcysteine decreased pump-induced oxidoinflammatory response during CPB, suggesting that it could be a novel therapy for assisting in the prevention of CBP-inducedOxidoinflammatory damage.
