Abstract

Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) is an established treatment of patients with heart failure. Several baseline characteristics can influence the CRT outcomes, and little is known about the effect of gender. The aim of the present study was to elucidate the gender-related differenc...read more

HFpEF

HF-pEF is associated with left ventricular diastolic dysfunction and concentric left ventricular hypertrophy and has significant mortality and morbidity. The heterogeneity of the disease has resulted in the failure of any drugs for the treatment of HF-pEF. Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to this disease.

Ischemia

Ischemia results from lack of blood flow to a particular region or organ and can have serious consequences, including myocardial infarction. Different therapeutic interventions including stents, percutaneous coronary intervention and angioplasty may be used for treatment. Discover the latest research on ischemia here.

Cardiovascular Diseases: Risk Factors

Cardiovascular disease is a significant health concern. Risk factors include hypertension, obesity, dyslipidemia and smoking. Women who are postmenopausal are at an increased risk of heart disease. Here is the latest research for risk factors of cardiovascular disease.

Vascular Headaches

Vascular headache is an outdated term to describe certain types of headache which were thought to be related to blood vessel swelling and hyperemia as cause of pain. Headaches formerly classified as vascular headaches are now identified as migraines, cluster headaches, and illness-related headaches. Discover the latest research on vascular headaches here.

Arrhythmia

Arrhythmias are abnormalities in heart rhythms, which can be either too fast or too slow. They can result from abnormalities of the initiation of an impulse or impulse conduction or a combination of both. Here is the latest research on arrhythmias.

Coronary Artery Disease

Coronary artery disease is extremely prevalent in western societies and is the number one cause of morbidity and mortality industrialized countries. Known risk factors include hypertension, smoking and dyslipidemia. Discover the latest research on coronary artery disease here.

Atrial Fibrillation

Atrial fibrillation is a common arrhythmia that is associated with substantial morbidity and mortality, particularly due to stroke and thromboembolism. Here is the latest research.

Atrial Filbrillation

Atrial fibrillation refers to the abnormal heart rhythm characterized by rapid and irregular beating of the atria. Here is the latest research.

HFrEF

Heart failure with reduced ejection fraction (HF-rEF) is responsible for high costs and increased rates of hospital admissions along with high mortality and morbidity risks. Only treatment for HF-rEF has been shown to be efficacious compared to HF-pEF which currently has no useful treatment options. Here is the latest research on HF-rEF.

Brain Ischemia

Brain ischemia is a condition in which there is insufficient blood flow to the brain to meet metabolic demand. Discover the latest research on brain ischemia here.

Anti-Arrhythmic Drug Therapies

Anti-arrhythmic drugs are used to prevent abnormal heart rhythms. These medications are used in conditions including, ventricular tachycardia, ventricular fibrillation and atrial fibrillation. Discover the latest research on anti-arrhythmic drug therapies here.
