Ferroptosis is an iron-dependent cell death, characterized by the accumulation of lipid-reactive oxygen species; various regulatory mechanisms influence the course of ferroptosis. The rapid increase in cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) is an extremely urgent problem. CVDs are characterized by the progressive deterioration of the heart and blood vessels, eventually leading to circulatory system disorder. Accumulating evidence, however, has highlighted crucial roles of ferroptosis in CVDs. Hydrogen sulfide plays a significant part in anti-oxidative stress, which may participate in the general mechanism of ferroptosis and regulate it by some signaling molecules. This review has primarily summarized the effects of hydrogen sulfide on ferroptosis and cardiovascular disease, especially the antioxidative stress, and would provide a more effective direction for the clinical study of CVDs.
