The risks of heart attack, stroke, or needing a coronary revascularization procedure were reduced by 37%, 28%, and 37%, respectively.[6] The Heart Protection Study evaluated the effects of simvastatin in people with risk factors including existing cardiovascular disease, diabetes, or stroke, but having relatively low LDL cholesterol. In this trial, which lasted 5.4 years, overall mortality was reduced by 13% and cardiovascular mortality was reduced by 18%. Continue reading

Ventricular dysfunction in heart failure – Britannica.com

Posted: April 14, 2018 at 4:46 am

Ventricular dysfunction in heart failure The major role of the ventricles in pumping blood to the lungs and body means that even a slight decrease in ventricular efficiency can have a significant impact on heart function. If the left ventricle encounters either absolute or relative functional insufficiency (called left ventricular heart failure, or left-sided heart failure), a series of compensatory reactions are initiated that may temporarily provide a return to sufficient ventricular function.
