Cardiovascular genetics and genomics is a distinct subspecialty interest within the current clinical genetics and genomics practice. It has rapidly transformed into cardiovascular genomic medicine specifically aimed at delivering the multi-disciplinary team led precision and personalized cardiac healthcare. The scope and remit of the clinical cardiovascular medicine is very wide. It deals with a number of Inherited Cardiovascular Conditions (ICCs) that are collectively common in a busy secondary or tertiary cardiovascular service unit. These include isolated or complex congenital heart diseases, inherited disorders of the myocardium, disorders of the cardiac conduction and rhythm, isolated and complex disorders of arteries and aorta and a number of other genetic disorders with significant cardiovascular system involvement. This study provides an overview on commonly referred ICCs to a typical clinical cardiology service. In the UK, major tertiary service providers have joined up with the clinical genetics service and many other specialists. The National Health Service across UK has adopted the multi-disciplinary team approach for specialized genomic led services. Evidencebased clinical protocols and pathways are used to guide the comprehensive healthcare for patients, closely related family members. Emphasis is laid on referral and genetic/genomic testing guidelines that are jointly used by clinical geneticists, genetic counselors, clinical cardiologists, specialist cardiac nurses and other allied support scientific and healthcare members of the multi-disciplinary ICC team. The scope and applications of cardiovascular genomics in community/public health is also discussed

The prevalence of obesity and its complications is rapidly increasing worldwide. Body pump was created as a muscular endurance workout based on scientific research. The purpose of the present study was to determine of body pump exercise effect on adiponectin serum level in sedentary obese females. First of all randomly selected 22 untrained females with average age 25.36±7.50 years old, weight 91.15±13.12 kg, height 164.09±5.92 cm and body mass index (BMI) 33.95±5.95 kg/m² (experimental group) and 20 untrained females with average age 30.63 ±6.39 years old, weight 85.35±10.65 kg, height 163.55±5.72 cm and body mass index (BMI) 31.92±2.95 kg/m² (control group) who had no exercise training in last one year. The study method was semi-experimental research. In this study experimental group done body pump training with a progressive resistance training protocol (included 8 resistance training, 3 sessions per week, for totally 6 weeks) and the control group did not any training during protocol training time. Blood samples were collected after 12- 14 hour fasting in the same conditions at the beginning of program and at the end of 6th week of performance (per- test and post- test sample). Pre- test and post- test serum adiponectin values were measured. We used kolmogorov-smirnov statistical tests to analyse the results and dependent t- test to comparison of pre- test and post- test variables. The all calculations were accomplished by SPSS software, version.19. The results indicated that the body pump training on adiponectin volume in experimental group had no significant difference (p>0.05

Purpose: There has been extensive investigation of attendance rates at Cardiac Rehabilitation (CR) but little attention to client reasoning around attendance. This study explored participants’ decision-making drivers for attendance or non-attendance at CR programs available in rural Victoria, Australia. Method: All new patients referred to the CR programs at either the local hospital or community health service over a six months period were invited to participate and were interviewed before, after and at six months post CR. Content analysis was used to identify and group common themes that emerged from the semi-structured interviews. Results: Eighty-four of the 114 patients referred agreed to participate in the study. Multiple barriers or facilitators affected the decisions of all clients. Two main themes emerged; The first theme described the participant decision-making experience, the invitation and information about participation in CR and identified the need for a person centered approach to CR provision and on-going support. The second theme identified significant decision-making points: Following the cardiac event; before and after hospital-based CR; before and after community-based CR and at six months post the cardiac event. At any time, there is a risk that the client can become lost or disengaged in the service system but providing contact at these points can facilitate re-engagement. Conclusion: This study provided the opportunity to hear participants’ voices describing their decisions around CR attendance after a cardiac event and their ability to sustain lifestyle behavioral change. They highlighted the complexity of issues confronting them and suggested improvements to optimize their attendance and to maintain lifestyle changes.

According to World Health Organization, the cardiovascular disease was the leading cause of NCD (Non-communicable diseases) deaths in 2012 and was responsible for 17.5 million deaths or 46% of NCD-caused deaths. The purpose of this study to signify a key in the development of an area of research by identifying the importance of cardiovascular disease among blue-collar workers and timely measure for maintenance of their better health status. Using a cross-sectional research analysis, this study analyzed the incidence of cardiovascular disease among blue-collar workers. Prevalence of cardiovascular disease was proven to be relatively high. However, the awareness treatment and the control of cardiovascular disease in this population were very low; the prevalence was higher in Indians compared to Pakistani and Bangladeshi or other nationalities. Risks were higher among those who were having the smoking habit or high cholesterol food intake. Also and the majority was married, overweight or obese. It is hoped this study will contributes to the information on the issue and possibly adds some useful information for policy makers and blue-collar workers (industrial or occupational workers) about management practices of good cardiovascular health. This study clearly answers (addresses) the question why blue-collar workers are having more cardiovascular diseases then white-collar workers and further more studies are require to discuss this issue world-wide. Human resources development is one of the main fields which require attention in successful organizations. Blue-collar workers are the backbone on any country's economy; to get powerful economy of the country therefore it is very necessary to look for the blue-collar workers’ health. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), non-communicable diseases such as cardiovascular disease, cancer, chronic respiratory disease and diabetes cause 60% of all deaths globally, 80% of this mortality occurs in low and middle income countries. Dubai’s labor force depends on these low middle income countries like India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and other South Asian countries. In this population cardiovascular diseases are very common due to many reasons like there is no check and balance on governmental healthcare facilities, financial issues and health education etc. Ignorance of these life threatening conditions leading them to carry this burden till they end up in hospitals. If blue-collar workers would be fit physically and mentally then the result would be in the form of powerful economy and booming industrial zones. This research teaches us many facts regarding medical and social aspects of the life of blue-collar workers and just little help and care can save many lives of this very important community called blue collar-workers. This study clearly answers the question why blue-collar workers are having more cardiovascular diseases then white-collar workers and further more studies are require to discuss this issue world-wide.

Title: Kidney transplant and improve cardiovascular outcomes

Time : 14:00-15:00


Tabriziani has earned his MD with honors from Iran University of Medical Sciences (IUMS). He finished his Internal Medicine residency at St. Barnabas Hospital, Weill Cornell Medical College in New York. With passion for education and Transplantation, he accepted the fellowship in Nehrology and Hypertension at Georgetown University in Washington, DC and continued his education at University of California San Francisco (UCSF) with a Transplant Nephrology fellowship. He was appointed at the Medical director of Pancreas Transplantation at Westchester Medical Center, New York Medical college before moving to Loma Linda University in California to serve as an Assistant Professor of Medicine in Nephrology / Transplant division. He is an active member of American Society of Nephrology and American society of Transplantation. His interests are in Hypertension and Oxidative Stress in patients with chronic kidney disease and transplantation.


The prevalence of kidney disease and End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) continues to rise in the world. By the year 2030, the number of patients with ESRD in USA is projected to exceed 2.2 million. This is more than five times the current prevalence. During the past decade, kidney transplantation has increasingly been recognized as the treatment of choice for medically suitable patients with ESRD. As well as improving quality of life, successful transplantation confers major benefits by improving morbidity and mortality of ESRD patients who receive kidney transplant over those who undergo Renal Replacement Therapy (RRT). Cardiovascular (CV) risk reduction remains the leading cause of this improvement. There are many reasons for this drastic success in reduction of CV death. Higher Glomerular Filtration rate (GFR) usually result in lower incidence of high blood pressure. Many kidney transplant recipients are experiencing a significant improvement in blood pressure control with fewer medications within months of surgery. Oxidative stress also plays a key role in the pathophysiological process of uremia and its complications, particularly in cardiovascular disease. The level of oxidative stress markers is known to increase as Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) progresses and correlates significantly with level of renal function. Successful kidney transplantation results in near normalization of the antioxidant status and lipid metabolism by eliminating free radicals despite the surge of oxidative stress caused by the surgical procedure and ischemic injury to the organ during the operation. This success is associated with both improved renal functions, reduced cardiovascular complications and overall improved morbidity and mortality.

Increase of systolic blood pressure difference between arms was associated with increased risk of atherosclerosis and also identified as a predictor of cardiovascular event and mortality. The aim of this study was to investigate the prevalence of an inter-arm systolic blood pressure difference (sIAD) in hypertensive elderly and to identifity what factors include participant’s characteristic and physical performance between individual who have normal and abnormal sIAD, who living at Yasothon province, Thailand. This study was conducted  cross sectional study from review medical data and selected 196 hypertensive elderly without cardiovascular disease and who met inclusion criteria (average age 71.74 ± 6.58 years, 54.08% women, 68.37% never smoked). Blood pressure was recorded randomly sequential technique for each arm using an automated oscillometric device. The sIAD was expressed as the absolute systolic blood pressure, and difference were determined for individual subject, was calculated by subtracting the right arm systolic blood pressure (R) from the left arm (L) (|R-L|). Participants were evaluated vascular status by sIAD and physical performance was assessment by hand grip strength. The prevalence of an abnormal sIAD will report as a percentage and compared the between group was used Student t-test, differences were considered to be statistically significant where p < 0.05.  The prevalence of abnormal sIAD (defined as sIAD ≥ 10 mmHg) was 17 (8.67%) participants. Number of participant who reported smoke habit (ex-smoker and current smoker) together with resting systolic blood pressure were significantly higher in participants who had abnormal sIAD group (p < 0.05). The results instruct there is considerable that abnormal sIAD in the hypertensive elderly, which was risk factor for cardiovascular disease. Thus, in primary care may applied blood pressure measurement as a simple tool for assessment of cardiovascular status in Thai community population
