Review Article of American Journal of Cardiology Research and Reviews INDUCTION OF EXPERIMENTAL TROMBOSES IN ANIMAL MODEL Arthur Hipólito Pereira Leite1*, Adriana Maria da Silva Telles2, Ana Lúcia Figueiredo Porto3 Introduction: In vivo studies, related to thrombosis, allow a better understanding of the biological behavior of molecules with thrombolytic properties. Goal: To evaluate the methodological characteristics as well as the efficacy of thrombosis induced by the association of the blood stasis method and ferric chloride (FeCl3). Methodology: Review of published literature on the topic “Experimental thrombosis”. This search was performed in the Pubmed, ScieceDirect, Scielo and Google Academic databases, by crossing the following descriptors: Thrombosis, Fibrinolytics and Cardiovascular Diseases. Articles, dissertations and theses written in Portuguese and English were selected without delimitation of the date of publication. Results: National and international studies have shown that the induction of thrombosis, by association of the methods mentioned above, is simple, cheap and reproducible. In addition, this combination of techniques allows adequate mimicking of the thrombogenic characteristics observed in humans. Conclusion: Studies in biological models are essential for understanding the mechanisms involved in thrombotic disorders. Keywords: Cardiovascular diseases, Fibrinolytics, Thrombosis ...

Chemotherapy-induced cardiotoxicity: Preliminary report from a tertiary cancer centre in India

Research Article of American Journal of Cardiology Research and Reviews Chemotherapy-induced cardiotoxicity: Preliminary report from a tertiary cancer centre in India Dr Suwarna Tambade MBBS, DNB- Medicine, Dr Sagar Bhalerao MBBS MD Oncology, Dr Rucha Sule MBBS, MD Psychiatry Dr Rajnish Nagarkar MS, MRCS (Edin), DNB BSS (UK), MNAMS HCG Manavata Cancer Centre, Nashik, India. Cancer has emerged as a major public health issue in India owing to significant epidemiological and demographic transition. As per literature, the overall ten-year survival rate for cancer is at 50% across the 20 most common malignancies. However, the ten-year survival rate is even more high, i.e. approximately 80% or higher for breast, melanoma, lymphoma, and uterine cancers. Contrary to the improved long-term cancer survival rates there has been an increase in adverse cardiac effects of cancer treatment. A retrospective analysis of patients admitted at HCG Manavata Cancer Centre, Nashik was conducted. The study was conducted at a single center comprising of 115 participants. Anthracyline chemotherapy has remained a mainstay treatment approach for cancer patients. Cardiotoxic side-effects of anthracyline chemotherapy regimens often limits their dosing. Although anthracylines have been associated with improved cancer outcomes, there remains an increased risk of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. Doxorubicin-induced cardio toxicity was 5.45% while trastuzumab cardio toxicity was 5.26% (Table 4). The estimated cardio toxicity rate for our two-year follow-up was 4.08% for all specified chemotherapy regimens. The early detection of cardio toxicity by appropriate follow-up and monitoring is essential. Evaluation of patients using LVEF as a key parameter would help prevent irreversible cardio toxic events. Our preliminary report may act as a base for researchers and academicians to conduct and review ongoing chemotherapy regimens.

RVOT Septal Pacing: Short review of History and Technical Requirements for successful implantation

Review Article of American Journal of Cardiology Research and Reviews RVOT Septal Pacing: Short review of History and Technical Requirements for successful implantation Sudeb Mukherjee Institute Of Cardiovascular Science, Institute Of Post Graduate Medical Education and Research, Kolkata-700020. The idea of Right Ventricular Outflow Tract (RVOT) septal pacing is based on the fact that the septal region of the RVOT and mid RV are the first zones of the ventricle to depolarise , suggesting that pacing from these areas on the right side of the septum would achieve as normal a contraction pattern as possible. This mini review describes short history of pacemaker and evolution of concept of physiological pacing like RVOT Pacing and its technical aspects of successful implantation. Keywords: Right Ventricular Outflow Tract (RVOT), Physiological Pacing ...

Hematological Change in Dogs Infected by Babesia Canis From Recife/Pernambuco

Research Article of American Journal of Cardiology Research and Reviews Hematological Change in Dogs Infected by Babesia Canis From Recife/Pernambuco Osório, M.O1, Albuquerque, E.N2, Accioly, C.C3, Behar, J.N.P4 1,2,3Psicóloga do Instituto de Medicina Integral Professor Fernando Figueira - IMIP, Tutora do Curso de Psicologia da Faculdade Pernambucana de Saúde - FPS 4Psicóloga do Instituto de Medicina Integral Professor Fernando Figueira – IMIP Introduction: The canine babesiosis is a disease caused by the intra-erythrocyte hematozoa Babesia canis, B. gibsoni and B. vogeli, mainly transmitted by Rhipicefalus sanguineus tick. In Brazil, the most common species is B. canis. Cases of canine babesiosis have been reported in several Brazilian states, and may cause serious damage to the health of animals. Objective: this study aims to analyze the hematological alterations of dogs treated at a veterinary clinic. Methodology: the research was retrospective, exploratory, descriptive and cross-sectional with quantitative-qualitative approach, and it was carried out at the clinic Bicho Estimado - Cordeiro, Recife-PE. Data collection was performed in the database of the Clinic laboratory, where reports of complete blood count and hematozoal examination were consulted, referring to the period from May 2012 to December 2014. Results: 716 laboratory reports were analyzed. A mean positivity of 20.11% was found for canine babesiosis, diagnosed by the blood draw technique stained by Giemsa. With regard to the hemogram, the following results were obtained: erythrocytes with an average value of 5.36 million/μL [reference value (VR)= 5,5 to 8,5] and platelets 183.5 thousand/μL (200-500 thousand/μL). Discussion: The hemogram showed the presence of anemia, with values of hemoglobin below the reference values. In the leukogram, monocytopenia and mild neutrophilia were observed. He also had thrombocytopenia and a high positivity for babesia. Conclusion: the results showed that babesiosis affects dogs of this region with a relevant frequency, causing alterations in some hematological parameters ...
