Abstract

Aortic dissection causes significant morbidity and mortality in adults and treatment guidelines are based on well-documented risk factors. Conversely, dissection after orthotopic heart transplantation is very rare, especially in the absence of infection, hypertension, or donor-recipient...read more

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.

Heart Transplantation

Heart transplantation is a surgical means of replacing a recipient's heart with a healthier organ. Find the latest research in heart transplantation here.

Coronary Artery Aneurysm

Coronary artery aneurysms are the dilation of the coronary arteries that supply the heart tissue with blood and nutrients. The dilation exceeds 1.5 times the normal artery size. Complications can occur if these aneurysms rupture. Here is the latest research on coronary artery aneurysms.

Dissecting Aneurysm

A dissecting aneurism is an injury in which blood enters between the intima and tunica media of the aortic wall. Often, the aorta is affected, and this is referred to as an aortic dissection. This may result in hemorrhage or in vessel occlusion and insufficient blood supply. Management is often both medical and surgical. Find the latest research on dissecting aneurisms here.

Cardiomyopathy

Cardiomyopathy is a disease of the heart muscle, that can lead to muscular or electrical dysfunction of the heart. It is often an irreversible disease that is associated with a poor prognosis. There are different causes and classifications of cardiomyopathies. Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to this disease.

Aneurysm

Aneurysms are outward distensions or bulges that occurs in a weakened wall of blood vessels. Discover the latest research on aneurysms here.
