Overview Heart disease describes a range of conditions that affect your heart. Diseases under the heart disease umbrella include blood vessel diseases, such as coronary artery disease; heart rhythm problems (arrhythmias); and heart defects you’re born with (congenital heart defects), among others. The term “heart disease” is often used interchangeably with the term “cardiovascular disease.” Cardiovascular disease generally refers to conditions that involve narrowed or blocked blood vessels that can lead to a heart attack, chest pain (angina) or stroke Continue reading

AnginaAngina manifests as pain in the chest that results from reduced blood supply to the heart (ischemia). Blood carries oxygen around your body and depriving the heart of oxygen has serious consequences.Angina is caused by atherosclerosis, that is the narrowing and / or blockage of the blood vessels that supply the heart.The typical pain of angina is in the chest but it can often radiate to the left arm, shoulder or jaw. Continue reading

In the United States 11% of people between 20 and 40 have CVD, while 37% between 40 and 60, 71% of people between 60 and 80, and 85% of people over 80 have CVD.[1] The average age of death from coronary artery disease in the developed world is around 80 while it is around 68 in the developing world.[9] Disease onset is typically seven to ten years earlier in men as compared to women.[11] no data less than 70 70140 140210 210280 280350 350420 420490 490560 560630 630700 700770 more than 770 There are many cardiovascular diseases involving the blood vessels Continue reading

Journal of Heart and Cardiovascular Research is a peer reviewed journal that provides a worldwide platform for dispersal of current findings in the field of cardiology, diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular diseases such as cardiomyopathy, atherosclerosis, arrhythmia, heart attack, impairment of function of cardiac valves and congenital heart diseases. The journal also aims at creating awareness on prevention and early detection of CVDs by monitoring symptoms like frequent recurrence of cardiac angina. The scope of the journal includes current advancements in diagnostic and therapeutic methods relating to cardiac dysfunctions, such as Percutaneous Transluminal Coronary Angioplasty (PTCA), Echocardiography (ECG), Coronary Angiography, Myocardial Biopsy, Pericardiocentesis, Cardiac Catheterization, Stent Placement, Bypass Surgery and Insertion of Pacemaker Continue reading
