Departamento de Cardiopneumologia - FM/MCP

O Departamento de Cardiopneumologia está ligado ao InCor (Instituto do Coração). Foi criado em 1986 unindo quatro disciplinas: Cardiologia, Pneumologia, Bases fisiológicas da prática médica e Cirurgia Cardiovascular. Sua concepção tem como foco estabelecer uma ponte entre o ensino de fisiologia, propedêutica e patologia clínica. Atualmente, as disciplinas regidas pelo Departamento são: áreas de genética e cardiologia molecular; cardiologia; cirurgia cardiovascular; cirurgia torácica e pneumologia.

  1. Integrated systems biology approach identifies gene targets for endothelial dysfunction

    MOLECULAR SYSTEMS BIOLOGY, v.19, n.12, article ID e11462, 19p, 2023

    Endothelial dysfunction (ED) is critical in the development and progression of cardiovascular (CV) disorders, yet effective therapeutic targets for ED remain elusive due to limited understanding of its underlying molecular mechanisms. To address this gap, we employed a systems biology approach to...

  2. Small airways morphological alterations associated with functional impairment in lymphangioleiomyomatosis

    BMC PULMONARY MEDICINE, v.24, n.1, article ID 22, 11p, 2024

    BackgroundLymphangioleiomyomatosis (LAM) is a rare neoplastic and cystic pulmonary disease characterized by abnormal proliferation of the so-called LAM cells. Despite the functional obstructive pattern observed in most patients, few studies investigated the morphological changes in the small airw...

  3. Down the rabbit hole: reviewing the evidence for primary prevention of cardiovascular disease in people with obesity

    EUROPEAN JOURNAL OF PREVENTIVE CARDIOLOGY, v.30, n.17, Special Issue, p.1895-1905, 2023

    Obesity is a prevalent chronic disorder and a well-known risk factor for cardiovascular disease. However, the evidence of treating obesity for primary prevention of major cardiovascular events is still scarce and controversial. In this review, we provided a comprehensive description of the curren...

  8. Lipoprotein(a) and Benefit of PCSK9 Inhibition in Patients With Nominally Controlled LDL Cholesterol


    BACKGROUND Guidelines recommend nonstatin lipid-lowering agents in patients at very high risk for major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE) if low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) remains >= 70 mg/dL on maximum tolerated statin treatment. It is uncertain if this approach benefits patients...
