ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVES@#Cardiac hypertrophy and fibrosis are major pathological manifestations observed in left ventricular remodeling induced by angiotensin II (AngII). Low-intensity pulsed ultrasound (LIPUS) has been reported to ameliorate cardiac dysfunction and myocardial fibrosis in myocardial infarction (MI) through mechano-transduction and its downstream pathways. In this study, we aimed to investigate whether LIPUS could exert a protective effect by ameliorating AngII-induced cardiac hypertrophy and fibrosis and if so, to further elucidate the underlying molecular mechanisms.@*METHODS@#We used AngII to mimic animal and cell culture models of cardiac hypertrophy and fibrosis. LIPUS irradiation was applied in vivo for 20 min every 2 d from one week before mini-pump implantation to four weeks after mini-pump implantation, and in vitro for 20 min on each of two occasions 6 h apart. Cardiac hypertrophy and fibrosis levels were then evaluated by echocardiographic, histopathological, and molecular biological methods.@*RESULTS@#Our results showed that LIPUS could ameliorate left ventricular remodeling in vivo and cardiac fibrosis in vitro by reducing AngII-induced release of inflammatory cytokines, but the protective effects on cardiac hypertrophy were limited in vitro. Given that LIPUS increased the expression of caveolin-1 in response to mechanical stimulation, we inhibited caveolin-1 activity with pyrazolopyrimidine 2 (pp2) in vivo and in vitro. LIPUS-induced downregulation of inflammation was reversed and the anti-fibrotic effects of LIPUS were absent.@*CONCLUSIONS@#These results indicated that LIPUS could ameliorate AngII-induced cardiac fibrosis by alleviating inflammation via a caveolin-1-dependent pathway, providing new insights for the development of novel therapeutic apparatus in clinical practice.

ABSTRACT

Objective:To investigate the related factors affecting intraoperative blood loss in patients with spinal tumors undergoing preoperative selective arterial embolization.Methods:The clinical data of 90 patients with spinal tumors who underwent preoperative selective arterial embolization in the Affiliated Hospital of Jining Medical College and the Second Affiliated Hospital of Shanxi Medical University from January 2017 to December 2020 were retrospectively analyzed. The influencing factors of intraoperative bleeding were analyzed by using multiple linear regression.Results:There were statistically significant differences in intraoperative blood loss of spinal tumor patients undergoing preoperative selective arterial embolization with different blood supply abundance and the number of tumors involving vertebral body (all P < 0.05). There were no significant differences in age, gender, body mass index, interval after embolization, operation time, pathological type, tumor site, embolization degree, the number of embolized vessels, preoperative Frankel grade among different groups (all P > 0.05). Multiple linear regression analysis showed that the number of tumors involving vertebral body and tumor blood supply abundance were factors affecting intraoperative blood loss, and vertebra number and tumor blood supply were positively correlated with intraoperative blood loss (all P < 0.05). Conclusion:For patients with spinal tumors undergoing preoperative selective arterial embolization, the number of tumors involving vertebral body and the abundance of the tumor blood supply are factors affecting the amount of intraoperative bleeding.

ABSTRACT

A limited number of microRNAs (miRNAs, miRs) have been reported to control postnatal cardiomyocyte proliferation, but their strong regulatory effects suggest a possible therapeutic approach to stimulate regenerative capacity in the diseased myocardium. This study aimed to investigate the miRNAs responsible for postnatal cardiomyocyte proliferation and their downstream targets. Here, we compared miRNA profiles in cardiomyocytes between postnatal day 0 (P0) and day 10 (P10) using miRNA arrays, and found that 21 miRNAs were upregulated at P10, whereas 11 were downregulated. Among them, miR-31a-5p was identified as being able to promote cardiomyocyte proliferation as determined by proliferating cell nuclear antigen (PCNA) expression, double immunofluorescent labeling for α-actinin and 5-ethynyl-2-deoxyuridine (EdU) or Ki-67, and cell number counting, whereas miR-31a-5p inhibition could reduce their levels. RhoBTB1 was identified as a target gene of miR-31a-5p, mediating the regulatory effect of miR-31a-5p in cardiomyocyte proliferation. Importantly, neonatal rats injected with a miR-31a-5p antagomir at day 0 for three consecutive days exhibited reduced expression of markers of cardiomyocyte proliferation including PCNA expression and double immunofluorescent labeling for α-actinin and EdU, Ki-67 or phospho-histone-H3. In conclusion, miR-31a-5p controls postnatal cardiomyocyte proliferation by targeting RhoBTB1, and increasing miR-31a-5p level might be a novel therapeutic strategy for enhancing cardiac reparative processes.

ABSTRACT

Objective@#To evaluate the effect of transcatheter aortic valve replacement(TAVR) using Venus-A valve for treating patients with severe aortic stenosis.@*Methods@#In this prospective study, 101 consecutive severe aortic stenosis patients with high surgical risk(Society of Thoracic Surgeon(STS) score ≥4%) or at prohibitive surgical risk were enrolled from 5 academic cardiovascular centers in China(Fuwai hospital, the second affiliated hospital of Zhejiang university school of medicine, West China hospital of Sichuan university, the first affiliated hospital of Nanjing medical university, Ruijin hospital of Shanghai Jiaotong university school of medicine) from September 2012 to January 2015, and Venus-A valves were used in TAVR for these patients. The primary endpoints were death from any cause and major stroke in 1 year. The secondary endpoints included efficacy and safety of TAVR in 1 year.@*Results@#TAVR success rate was 97.9%(98/101), and 3 patients were transferred to receive surgical AVR. There were 85 patients using 1 Venus-A valve, and 13 patients underwent valve-in-valve implantation using 2 Venus-A valves. There were 1 case(1.0%) of stroke, 2 cases(2.0%)of acute myocardial infarction, 5 cases(5.0%) of pericardial effusion, 6 cases(5.9%) of severe vascular complication, and 2 cases(2.0%) of death after 7 days of TAVR. Meanwhile, aortic pressure gradient derived from echocardiography was significantly reduced when compared with pre-procedure level(11(8, 15) mmHg (1 mmHg=0.133 kPa) vs. 59(45, 71)mmHg, P<0.01), and there was no aortic root rupture or leaflets thrombosis. Rate of NYHA functional class ≤Ⅱ improvements were observed at 6 months follow-up when compared with pre-procedure(94.4%(84/89)vs. 21.3%(21/89), P<0.01). The primary endpoint was 7.9%(8/11), and the incidence of all cause death and stroke was 5.9%(6/101) and 2.0%(2/101) respectively at 1 year after the procedure. Kaplan-Meier survival analysis showed that cumulative survival rate was 94.1% at 1 year after the procedure.@*Conclusion@#TAVR using Venus-A valve for treating patients with severe aortic stenosis is effective and safe in the early and medium term post procedure.

ABSTRACT

Objective To evaluate the effect of transcatheter closure of perimembranous ventricular septal defect (PMVSD) with symmetric ventricular septal occluder (SVSO). Methods Sixty-three patients with UCG confirmed PMVSD underwent transcatheter closure with SVSO. Results The implantation was successful in 58 patients (93.0%). The mean PMVSD diameter was 5.1?1.9 mm by angiography. The distance from the aortic valve to the rim of PMVSD was 2.7?1.0 mm and the mean size of SVSO was 7.2?2.1 mm. There was no residual shunt in 55 patients (94.8%) right after the deployment of SVSO. Arrhythmia was recorded in 15 patients (23.8%) during or after the procedure. New aortic regurgitation was observed in one patient after the implantation SVSO. Two patients developed myocardium injury and one patient developed obstruction of right ventricular outflow tract. Dislocation of the device was found in one patient. During the follow-up of 3 to 12 (means 7.4?2.7) months, no residual shunt, displacement or rupture of divices and endocarditis happened. Conclusion Transcatheter closure of PMVSD using SVSO is safe and effective, meanwhite attention should be paid to the complications such as arrhythmias.

ABSTRACT

Objective To evaluate the effectiveness and safety of transcatheter closure of membranous ventricular septal defect (MVSD) using Amplatzer membranous VSD occluder (AMVSO). Methods The patients, who were clinically diagnosed with VSD were recommended for further transthoracic echocardiographic assessment using multiple standard views. If there were left to right shunts across ventricular septum, the margin of defects to the aortic valve was more than 1mm and that to tricuspid valve was more than 3 mm. If there was an aneurysm, it should not interfere with the function of outlet of right ventricule. Finally, if the diameter of VSDs wasless than 14mm, catheter closure of VSDs was suggested in these patients. The patients, having residual shunt after surgical closure of VSD, were included. All procedures were performed under local or general anesthesia. Transthorac echocardiography and X ray were used continuously to monitor the procedure. Transthoracic echocardiography was performed immediately after the release of devices, 24 hours, and 3 months after the procedure, respectively.Results From June 2002 to March 2003, 32 consecutive patients (15 females), underwent transcatheter closure of MVSD. The mean diameters of VSDs measured by echocardiography was 5.1 mm (3~8 mm) and, while that by angiography was 4.4 mm (3~8 mm). The mean size of the occluder was 7.6 mm(4~12 mm). The successful rate of device implantation was 100% (32/32). The residual shunt immediately after the closure was 11.5%, whereas after 24 hours it was only 7.7%, which was not serious. After 3 months′ follow-up, only 3.8% trivial residual shunt existed. No death occurred during and after the procedure. Atrial tachycardia, ventricular tachycardia, and bundle (right and left bundle) branch block, which was considered to relate to catheter manipulation inside the chamber of ventricle, were common and transient. One aortic regurgitation and tricuspid insufficiency became severe after the procedure, but they were not serious. One patient developed III degree A-V block 24 hours after the procedure, and EKG became LBBB 3 days after the temporary pace making. Hemolysis was observed in one patient, and he recovered 7days after the medication therapy. Conclusion Transthoracic echocardiography was very much effective in catheter closure of MVSD. The asymmetric self-expanding nitinol double-disc Amplatzer device designed for the transcatheter closure of MVSD is implanted easily and stably. Due to low ratio of residual shunt and few serious complications, the Amplatzer device is a good choice for the transcatheter closure of MVSD.
