Background: Many questions concerning polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) remain unsolved, such as the long term evolution of cardiovascular (CV) risk markers and the risk for CV events.Methods: A total of 119 PCOS patients diagnosed in 2009 by NIH criteria at our Unit were evaluated at baseline for cardiovascular risk markers (hypertension, diabetes mellitus-DM, dyslipidaemia, obesity, carotid intima media thickness-cIMT, and epicardial fat thickness-EFT) ...

BMI may be a better predictor of cardiovascular risk than PCOS phenotype in a population of reproductive age PCOS patients

Introduction: Women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) are considered to have increased risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD), even though the syndrome encompasses hugely varying phenotypes. Research into CVD prevention demonstrated a variety of biochemical and ultrasound (US) markers predicting risk in the general population, but those are sparsely utilised for PCOS, in part due to the patients’ therapeutic goals.Aim: To evaluate if PCOS type or...

Introduction: Cardiovascular morbidity is more prevalent in primary aldosteronism (PA) than in essential hypertension. Preclinical studies have shown a possible association between ascending aorta dilatation and PA, probably mediated by the mineralocorticoid receptor.Patients and methods: A total of 84 patients attending the Endocrinology Unit of the S. Orsola-Malpighi University Hospital of Bologna, (Italy) were evaluated. Thirty-nine patients had a dia...

Prevalence and incidence of atrial fibrillation in a large cohort of adrenal incidentalomas: A long-term retrospective study

Di Dalmazi Guido , Vicennati Valentina , Pizzi Carmine , Mosconi Cristina , Tucci Lorenzo , Balacchi Caterina , Cosentino Eugenio , Paolisso Pasquale , Fanelli Flaminia , Gambineri Alessandra , Pelusi Carla , Repaci Andrea , Garelli Silvia , Galiè Nazzareno , Borghi Claudio , Golfieri Rita , Pagotto Uberto

Background: Chronic glucocorticoids excess leads to morphological and functional cardiac alterations, a substrate for arrhythmias. Autonomous cortisol secretion (ACS) from adrenal incidentalomas is a model of chronic endogenous hypercortisolism, leading to severe cardiovascular diseases.Aim: To investigate prevalence and incidence of atrial fibrillation in a large cohort of patients with adrenal incidentalomas and ACS.Methods: Afte...
