Abstract

Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) represents a generalized myopathic process affecting both ventricular and atrial myocardium. We aimed to assess left atrial (LA) function by two-dimensional speckle tracking echocardiography and its relation with left ventricular (LV) function and clini...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.

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 Filbrillation

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

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.

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.

Cardiac Remodeling

Cardiac remodeling in response to a myocardial infarction is characterized by progressive ventricular dilatation, cardiac hypertrophy, fibrosis, and deterioration of cardiac performance. Discover the latest research on Cardiac Remodeling 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.

Valvular Heart Disease

Valvular heart disease causes significant burden within the realm of cardiovascular diseases and is increasing in prevalence, especially that of aortic valve insufficiency. Rheumatic fever causing valvular diseases has decreased incidence in industrialized countries. Discover the latest research on valvular disease here.
