    The aim of this study was to evaluate left atrial (LA) volume and mechanical functions by real time three-dimensional echocardiography (RT3DE) in prehypertensive subjects. The study included 54 (34 male and 20 female) prehypertensive subjects and 36 (14 male and 22 female) healthy control subjects. Transthoracic echocardiography and RT3DE were performed in all patients. Interventricular septum thickness and isovolumetric relaxation time were significantly higher in prehypertensives than in controls (10.7 +/- 0.7 vs. 10.1 +/- 0.8 P = 0.001 and 89.9 +/- 10 vs. 82.4 +/- 11 P = 0.002, respectively). LA maximum volume, volume before atrial contraction, total and active stroke volume, total and active emptying fractions, expansion index, and LA max volume index were significantly higher in prehypertensives when compared with controls (P < 0.0001 for all). However, the passive emptying fraction was significantly lower in prehypertensives than controls (45.7 +/- 5.6 vs. 48.6 +/- 4.1, P = 0.006), and the minimum LA volume between the two groups was similar. The main finding of this study was that although LA volume and LA active systolic functions were significantly increased in prehypertensive people, there was a reduction in passive LA systolic functions. These parameters may be important in showing hemodynamic and structural changes in cardiac tissue caused by prehypertension. (Echocardiography 2012;29:1211-1217)

    Uric Acid Level and Its Association with Carotid Intima-Media Thickness in Patients with Cardiac Syndrome X
    (2012-01-01T00:00:00Z) Acikgoz, Nusret; ERMİŞ, NECİP; Yagmur, Julide; Muezzinoglu, Kubra; Karakus, Yasin; CANSEL, MEHMET; PEKDEMİR, HASAN; ÖZDEMİR, Ramazan; AÇIKGÖZ, NUSRET; ÖZDEMİR, RAMAZAN
    Objective: The aim of our study was to evaluate serum uric acid level and its relationship with carotid intima-media thickness (CIMT) in patients with cardiac syndrome X (CSX). Subjects and Methods: A total of 50 patients with CSX (28 females/22 males, 51.0 +/- 10.9 years) and 40 controls (27 females/13 males, 53.0 +/- 10.2 years) were included in the study. All subjects underwent a noninvasive stress test and conventional coronary angiography. Serum uric acid levels were measured and B mode ultrasonography was performed to assess CIMT in all subjects. Results: Serum uric acid levels were higher in patients with CSX than in the control subjects (5.1 +/- 1.8 vs. 3.9 +/- 1.3 mg/dl; p = 0.002). The CIMT was higher in patients with CSX than in the control subjects (0.75 +/- 0.18 vs. 0.63 +/- 0.09 mm; p < 0.001). A significant correlation was found between serum uric acid values and CIMT measurements in patients with CSX (r = 0.666, p < 0.001). Conclusions: Serum uric acid levels were higher in patients with CSX and elevated serum uric acid levels were associated with carotid atherosclerosis, thereby indicating that elevated serum uric acid levels might contribute to the development of subclinical atherosclerosis in CSX patients.

    Maternal arrhythmias detected with electrocardiography during labour: Are they significant clinically?
    (2011-07-01T00:00:00Z) Kosus, A.; Kosus, N.; Acikgoz, NUSRET; Yildirim, M.; Kafali, H.; AÇIKGÖZ, NUSRET
    This study examines the maternal and fetal effects of arrhythmias detected by electrocardiographic (ECG) monitoring during labour in parturients at term, with no cardiovascular pathology. Pregnant cases were classified into three groups based on determined stages of labour and a standard 12-lead surface electrocardiogram and long-lead 2 rhythm strips were recorded during the labour. Cardiac arrhythmia of any kind was detected in 82.3% of patients in all stages of labour. Sinus tachycardia was the most commonly observed arrhythmia. Arrhythmias in the form of supraventricular tachycardia, T-wave inversion and ventricular extrasystole were also detected. The highest rate of arrhythmia was recorded for the active phase and 2nd phase of labour. Arrhythmias that are detected by ECG during or after the labour in patients with no cardiovascular pathology display a benign nature and do not create any clinical risk for the mother and the baby.
