Abstract

Postoperative atrial fibrillation is still a common complication in patients undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of preoperative statin therapy on new onset of postoperative atrial fibrillation in patients undergoing coronary arte...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.

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.

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.

Heart Rhythm & Arrythmias

Heart arrhythmias, also known as irregular heartbeat or cardiac dysrhythmia, are a group of conditions where the heartbeat is irregular (dysrhythmia), too slow (bradycardia), or too fast (tachycardia). Discover the latest research on heart rhythm and arrythmias here.

Antihypertensive Agents: Mechanisms of Action

Antihypertensive drugs are used to treat hypertension (high blood pressure) which aims to prevent the complications of high blood pressure, such as stroke and myocardial infarction. Discover the latest research on antihypertensive drugs and their mechanism of action here.

Atrial Filbrillation

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

American Thoracic Society: Allergy, Immunology & Inflammation

This feed has been developed in conjunction with the American Thoracic Society for the benefit of its Allergy, Immunology, and Inflammation Assembly. It highlights new and impactful papers on allergy, asthma, genetics, and the pathogenesis of lung diseases.

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.

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.

Cardiomegaly

Cardiomegaly, known as an enlarged heart, is a multifactorial disease with different pathophysiological mechanisms. Hypertension, pregnancy, exercise-induced and idiopathic causes are some mechanisms of cardiomegaly. Discover the latest research of cardiomegaly here.

American Thoracic Society: Clinical Problems

This feed has been developed in conjunction with the American Thoracic Society for the benefit of its Clinical Problems Assembly. It highlights new and impactful papers on clinical therapeutics, diagnoses, and practices pertaining to respiratory disease.

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (copd) is a progressive respiratory disease associated with increasing morbidity and mortality worldwide.

Hemochromatosis

Hemochromatosis is a genetic disorder characterized by excessive intestinal absorption of dietary iron, resulting in a pathological increase in total body iron stores. It leads to massive iron deposits in parenchymal cells of liver, adrenal glands, heart, skin, gonads, joints and pancreas, which disrupts the normal function of these organs.
