Angiotensin-converting enzyme gene polymorphism and risk of insulin resistance in PCOS.

Onder Celik, Elif Yesilada, Seyma Hascalik, Nilufer Celik, Ibrahim Sahin, Lezzan Keskin, Elif Ozerol,

The aim of this study was to establish the frequency of angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) insertion (I) or deletion (D) gene polymorphism in women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and to examine the association of this polymorphism with insulin resistance. A total of 32 women with PCOS and 31 healthy, age- ... Read more >>

P-wave duration and dispersion in obese subjects.

Feridun Kosar, Yüksel Aksoy, Fahri Ari, Lezzan Keskin, Ibrahim Sahin,

<h4>Background</h4>Although previous studies have documented a variety of electrocardiogram (ECG) abnormalities in obesity, P-wave alterations, which represent an increased risk for atrial arrhythmia, have not been studied very well in these patients. The aim of the present study was to evaluate P-wave duration and P dispersion (Pd) in obese subjects, ... Read more >>

Diagnostic potential of serum N-terminal pro-B-type brain natriuretic peptide level in detection of cardiac wall stress in women with polycystic ovary syndrome: a cross-sectional comparison study.

Onder Celik, Ibrahim Sahin, Nilufer Celik, Seyma Hascalik, Lezzan Keskin, Hamdi Ozcan, Ahmet Uckan, Feridun Kosar,

<h4>Background</h4>In addition to the negative effect on fertility, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) has been associated with cardiac pathology. Brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) is a possible marker for cardiac risk, therefore we investigated whether N-terminal pro-B-type BNP (NT-proBNP) increases in women with PCOS compared with healthy women of comparable age and ...
