To observe the effects of fastigial nucleus stimulation on serum inflammation, oxidative stress related factors, cardiac autonomic function and prognosis in patients with coronary heart disease


In recent years, with the improvement of the material living standards of the investigators residents and the change of working lifestyle, the prevalence and mortality of coronary heart disease (CHD) in urban and rural residents in China have increased year by year. According to statistics, the number of patients with coronary heart disease in China is currently 11 million. Coronary heart disease has become a major health problem in China. At present, it is found that inflammatory reaction and oxidative stress factors are involved in the occurrence and development of coronary heart disease, and their indicators such as heart rate variability are related to the prognosis of coronary heart disease. Fastigial nucleus stimulation (FNS) has been widely used in the treatment of various diseases such as cerebrovascular disease, migraine, and eye diseases. The study found that FNS can reduce inflammatory cytokines and oxidative stress factors in ischemic myocardium and improve heart rate variability in rats with myocardial infarction. The aim of this study was to investigate whether FNS can improve the aforementioned indicators and clinical outcomes in patients with coronary heart disease.

Cerebellar Fastigial Nucleus Stimulation in a Chronic Unpredictable Mild Stress Rat Model Reduces Post-Stroke Depression by Suppressing Brain Inflammation via the microRNA-29c/TNFRSF1A Signaling Pathway.

BACKGROUND We previously reported that cerebellar fastigial nucleus stimulation reduced post-stroke depression in a rat model by reducing inflammation. This study aimed to investigate the molecular in...

Combined Deep Brain Stimulation of Subthalamic Nucleus and Ventral Intermediate Thalamic Nucleus in Tremor-Dominant Parkinson's Disease Using a Parietal Approach.

Despite its efficacy in tremor-suppression, the ventral intermediate thalamic (VIM) nucleus has largely been neglected in deep brain stimulation (DBS) for tremor-dominant Parkinson's disease (tdPD). T...

Impact of subthalamic nucleus stimulation did not differ on young-onset and older-onset Parkinson's disease: a three-year follow up.

To assess the role of onset age in the results of bilateral subthalamic nucleus deep brain stimulation (STN-DBS), we carried out a retrospective study of two groups of patients regarding age at diseas...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Abnormal balloon- or sac-like dilatation in the wall of CORONARY VESSELS. Most coronary aneurysms are due to CORONARY ATHEROSCLEROSIS, and the rest are due to inflammatory diseases, such as KAWASAKI DISEASE.

A family of percutaneous techniques that are used to manage CORONARY OCCLUSION, including standard balloon angioplasty (PERCUTANEOUS TRANSLUMINAL CORONARY ANGIOPLASTY), the placement of intracoronary STENTS, and atheroablative technologies (e.g., ATHERECTOMY; ENDARTERECTOMY; THROMBECTOMY; PERCUTANEOUS TRANSLUMINAL LASER ANGIOPLASTY). PTCA was the dominant form of PCI, before the widespread use of stenting.

Surgical therapy of ischemic coronary artery disease achieved by grafting a section of saphenous vein, internal mammary artery, or other substitute between the aorta and the obstructed coronary artery distal to the obstructive lesion.

Treatment of disease by inserting needles along specific pathways or meridians. The placement varies with the disease being treated. It is sometimes used in conjunction with heat, moxibustion, acupressure, or electric stimulation.

Malformations of CORONARY VESSELS, either arteries or veins. Included are anomalous origins of coronary arteries; ARTERIOVENOUS FISTULA; CORONARY ANEURYSM; MYOCARDIAL BRIDGING; and others.
