Repair of ostium secundum and sinus venosus ASD can be performed safely via minithoracotomy endoscopic approach with similar outcomes as sternotomy. Beside the mitral cleft suturing in ASD I patients, annuloplasty tricuspid ring implantation is the most common additional procedure. ASD II patients, who had undergone such annuloplasties needed the bigger pericardial patches.]]>

Resveratrol was found to attenuate the pulmonary arterial remodeling and decrease pulmonary arterial pressure in PAH rat models...

The research team concluded that SIRT1 plays a key role in PAH prevention by resveratrol as it mediates the regulation of expression of cell cycle regulatory molecules.
