Simultaneous Analysis of Global and Regional Left Atrial Function Using Three-Dimensional Speckle-Tracking Echocardiography

Accurate and reliable quantitative evaluation of LA size and function are necessary for the diagnosis and treatment of heart disease and prediction of prognosis. ...

Myocardial Regeneration: A Novell Multifaceted Strategic Approach

Myocardial infarction and cardiac failure is a major source of morbidity and mortality globally. Current treatment strategies are mostly palliative and suboptimal. Stem cell based treatment strategy for tissue regeneration has proven value in the treatment of some conditions. The optimal treatment of myocardial infarction/heart failure lays in restoration and maintenance of adequate functional myocardial syntitium. ...

Retrograde Cellular Cardiomyoplasty through the Coronary Sinus. An Experimental Study on Swines

The aim was to create a model of myocardial infarction (MI) with a borderline myocardial impairment which would enable to evaluate the retrograde cellular cardiomyoplasty (CCM) through the coronary sinus (CS) in a large animal model. ...

Developing a Cardiac Moonshot 2020 by Leveraging Precision Medicine

Cardiovascular diseases like cancer continues to accounts for millions of death and lost productivity in the USA so finding a moon shot to cure cardiovascular disease and cancer could be the defining moments in medicine as was the discovery of penicillin to fight infection about half a century ago. Precision medicine is an emerging approach for disease treatment and prevention that takes into account individual variability ...

Comparative Study Between Bi Leaflet Excision Versus Posterior Leaflet Preservation in Patients Undergoing Mitral Valve Replacement in Suez Canal University Hospital

Preserving the subvalvular mitral apparatus has been recognized as necessary for improvement of-left ventricular systolic function after mitral valve replacement. ...

Association Between Body Mass Index and Cardiac Parameters of Worcester Heart Attack Study

The present report aims to identify the association between the body mass index and the cardiac parameters of the acute myocardial infarction (AMI) patients in the Worcester heart attack study (WHAS). Based on the separate analyses of body mass index (BMI), heart rate (HR), systolic blood pressure (SBP), and diastolic blood pressure (DBP), on the remaining other variables/ factors, many cardiac parameters (BMI) have (has) been identified ...

Takayasu's Arteritis Associated With Hyperthyroidism in an Elderly Female

Takayasu's arteritis is rare, but most commonly seen in Japan, South East Asia, India, and Mexico. Incidence of TA is 2.6/million/year, affects usually female and usually presents in the 2nd or 3rd decade of life. We intend to report a case where a Bangladeshi female presented at an unusual age of 52 years with rather atypical presentations like multiple joint pain and swelling with a very uncommon association of hyperthyroidism. ...

Association of Irregular Intake of Antihypertensive Drugs and Socio Demographic Trend With Risk of Stroke

This case control study attempted to determine the relationship between irregular intake of antihypertensive drugs and stroke among hypertensive patients. Demographic profile of the patients was analyzed thoroughly, and risk factors among those characteristics were also sought. ...

"Left Ventricular Diastolic Dysfunction Detected By Speckle Tracking in Hypertensive Patients With Preserved Ejection fraction"

Hypertension is a well-recognized risk factor for cardiovascular disease and a major contributor to a large percentage of heart failure cases as it causes left ventricular (LV) systolic pressure overload due to an increase in vascular resistance for"… due to an increase in vascular stiffness… ". which results in various LV geometric changes that progresses to diastolic heart failure and/or heart failure with LV systolic dysfunction ...

Prevention of Thromboembolism in Patients with Long Standing Persistant Atrial Fibrillation Having Chronic Liver Disease with Hepatocellular Carcinoma

A 65 years old women presented in cardiac outpatient department with history of palpitation for the last 8 months, Initially she didn`t notice it but with the passage of time palpitation was associated with exertional dyspnea.It was mild dyspnea, there was no associated history of orthopnea, pnd, exertional ...

Long-Term Clinical Outcomes of Patients with Type-1 Spontaneous Coronary Artery Dissection

Spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD) is an uncommon cause of myocardial ischemia, myocardial infarction (MI), and sudden cardiac death. With paucity of data on long-term outcomes of patients with SCAD and lack of randomized clinical trials in this group of patients, the optimal management ...

Reevaluating the Frequency and Prevalence of Left Ventricular Thrombus on Pre Discharge Contrast Trans Thoracic Echocardiography of Patients in Current Area with Acute Anterior Myocardial Infarction

Cardiovascular diseases are major causes of morbidity and mortality causing more than 25% of deaths in the Indian subcontinent [1,2]. Atherosclerotic disease is expected to become the leading cause of global morbidity and mortality by 2020 [1]. According to an estimate, nearly one hundred thousand individuals suffered an acute myocardial infarction ...

Management of Prehospital Phase of Acute Myocardial Infarction

Thirty percent of deaths due to acute myocardial infarction occur before patients arrive at a hospital; thus prehospital care plays a critical role in the management of this disease. Accurate history taking is the most important step in this management, as about two-thirds of all cases of acute myocardial infarction show prodromal symptoms prior to onset. Characteristic symptoms are chest discomfort, including sensations of strangulation and pressure or pain in the chest. ...

Intrapericardial Teratoma in a Newborn: A Case Report and Review of Literature

Intrapericardialor mediastinal teratoma if detected intrauterine in fetal life, the mortality will be less. Tumor size can be large and associated with pericardial effusion, the combination of which leads to progressive cardiac tamponade, fetal hydrops, and death. In the neonatal age group most of these tumors are benign and mediastinal teratomas despite ...

Localization of Different Culprit Artries in Patients with Acute Inferior Wall Myocardial Infaction along with Deviation in Lead aVr.

Standard 12-lead electrocardiography (ECG) is a widely available technology that is routinely applied in the setting of chest pain to identify patients with ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) who would benefit from primary PCI [1]. The use of ECG to predict the location of the culprit coronary lesion within the infarct-related artery (IRA) could provide ...

Accidently Discovered Big Basal Left Ventricular Pseudoaneurysm: Case Report

The left ventricular pseudoaneurysm (LVPA) is rare but potentially fatal complication post myocardial infarction (MI). The surgical experience is limited and its surgical treatment remains still a challenge with an elevated mortality. We present our experience with acquired post MI huge LVPA that was accidently discovered ...
