Perioperative atrial fibrillation and the long-term risk of ischemic stroke

Abstract

Clinically apparent atrial fibrillation increases the risk of ischemic stroke. In contrast, perioperative atrial fibrillation may be viewed as a transient response to physiological stress, and the long-term risk of stroke after perioperative atrial fibrillation is unclear. To examine th...read more

Embolic Disease

Embolic diseases can result in serious complications, depending where the emboli travels and organs that it affects. Thromboembolisms arise from pieces of a blood clot breaking free. Treatment and prevention involves anticoagulants for the different types of embolic diseases. Here is the latest research on embolic diseases.

Cerebrovascular Disease

Cerebrovascular disease is an important cause of cognitive impairment and dementia in elderly patients. Discover the latest research on cerebrovascular disease here.

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.

Hemorrhagic Stroke

Hemorrhagic strokes consist of subarachnoid hemorrhage and intracerebral hemorrhage and are a dominant cause of death and disability worldwide. Discover the latest research on hemorrhagic strokes 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.

Intracranial Hemorrhages

Intracranial hemorrhage (ICH), also known as intracranial bleed, is bleeding within the skull. Subtypes are intracerebral (intraventricular and intraparenchymal), subarachnoid, epidural, and subdural. Discover the latest research on intracranial hemorrhages 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.

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.

Acute Stroke

A stroke occurs when blood supply to the brain is interrupted depriving the brain of oxygen and nutrients. This feed focuses cerebrovascular accidents including ischemic and paralytic stroke.

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.

Ischemic Vascular Disease

Ischemic vascular disease occurs when there is reduced blood flow and supply through a vessel. When plaque builds up in arteries it is known as atherosclerosis and can affect many different arteries throughout the body, including the heart, brain, legs, arms and kidneys. Discover the latest research on ischemic vascular disease here.

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

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

Kidney Disease & Type 2 Diabetes

High blood glucose levels can damage the glomerulus and lead to thickening of the glomerular basement membrane, over time resulting in kidney deterioration and failure. At present, there is no cure. Here is the latest research on kidney diseases in individuals with type 2 diabetes.

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.
