Heart physiology Cardiovascular system starts with the heart, as heart is major organ in this system. The function of heart determines the functional status of the body. Any physical or functional abnormalities in heart leads to decrease in heart function. So, to know physiology of heart is important. It is the pumping organ which supplies oxygen and nutrients thro... Read More
Cardiovascular diseases Cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) are the events that are associated with any alteration in the functioning of heart and blood vessels and they include: • coronary heart disease • cerebrovascular disease • peripheral arterial disease • rheumatic heart • congenital heart disease • deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism Heart...

Risk factors There are many risk factors for cardiovascular heart diseases. Some of the risk factors cannot be avoided which may include age, gender, family history, genetic alterations, being post-menopausal. While some can be controllable are smoking, social habits, obesity, diet, stress and anger. Related societies: The World Society of Cardiovascular & Th... Read More
Hypertension Hypertension is also called as high blood pressure. Blood pressure is the force with the blood exerts against the blood vessel walls. Hypertension is the primary cause that leads to various cardiovascular diseases. It can stay asymptomatic for years, but the damage to blood vessels and heart continues to occur. Modifiable risk factors include unhea... Read More
Arrhythmias Abnormal rate or rhythm of heart is called arrhythmias. Arrhythmias may be slow (bradycardia), fast (tachycardia), irregular heartbeat (flutter or fibrillation), early heartbeat (premature contraction).Arrhythmias occurs when the heart's natural pacemaker develops an abnormal rate or rhythm or when the normal conduction pathway is disturb...

Angina Angina is discomfort or chest pain which occurs when the heart muscle doesn’t get sufficient oxygen rich blood supply. It is generally not a disorder or disease, but a symptom in the development of coronary artery disease. It is described as squeezing, pressure or heaviness in heart. Various types of angina includes stable angina, unstable angina... Read More
Atherosclerosis Atherosclerosis is defined as the narrowing of blood vessels due to deposition of plaques in the artery. Atherosclerosis does not show any symptoms until it severely narrows the arteries or completely narrows the artery. Age, obese, lack of exercise, high fat diet are some of the reasons for atherosclerosis. It leads to coronary artery disease wher... Read More
Congestive heart failure (CHF) CHF is also called as Heart Failure. It occurs when the heart muscle loses its ability to pump the blood too sufficiently. Not all the conditions that leads to heart failure can be reversible, but signs and symptoms can be improved. Shortness of breath, fatigue, weakness, reduced ability to exercise, are some of the symptoms. Types include Left Ven... Read More
Venous thromboembolism: (VTE) Venous thromboembolism generally refers to clot in the vein. VTE includes deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism. A deep vein thrombosis (DVT) occurs when a blood clot occurs in a deep vein, usually in the lower leg, thigh, or pelvis. When a clot breaks loose and travels through the bloodstream to the lungs, Pulmonary Embolism is formed. DVT i... Read More
Myocardial Infarction Myocardial infarction is also called as “Heart Attack”. It occurs when the blood supply to heart muscle is abruptly stopped causing tissue damage. Blood supply is stopped due to many reasons and one of them is deposition of fat, cholesterol etc. Risk factors includes high cholesterol, obesity, smoking, age, and family history. MI causes tightne... Read More
Cardiomyopathies Cardiomyopathy is the condition in which the heart muscle that makes it harder for heart to pump blood to the rest of body. Cardiomyopathy can lead to heart failure. Restricted, hypertrophic, dilated are the types of cardiomyopathies. This track gives information regarding the type of cardiomyopathies and the treatment used. Related societies: Th... Read More
Cardiac toxicity Cardio toxicity is damage to heart due to harmful chemicals that are given in the treatment of cancer. Radiation and chemotherapy causes damage to either physiology or anatomy of heart. Apart from causing cell death, various cardiac toxicity caused are cardiomyopathy, myocarditis, pericarditis, acute coronary syndrome, congestive heart failure. R... Read More
Cardiac diagnosis test The cardiac diagnostic tests are techniques used for determining the heart conditions by using sound versus unfortunate, pathologic, heart capacity. Various invasive and noninvasive tests are available to depict cardiovascular structure and capacity. • Electrocardiogram (ECG). • Stress test. • Transthoracic echocardiogram (echo or TTE). ...

Prevention and lifestyle changes Prevention is always a best than cure. In case of cardiovascular disorders, if not controlled or prevented it may lead to severe complications and adverse conditions. So cardio diseases can be prevented by various measures like avoid smoking, regular exercise, diet management, limit alcohol consumption, stress management, limit fatty food, etc. Re... Read More
Novel drug development systems The application of genomic technologies, along with systems biology approaches, identified multiple potential new cardiovascular drug targets and actual molecules with potential cardiovascular applications. Related societies: Asian Pacific Society of Hypertension; Association of Cardiologists of Kazakhstan, The Heart foundation of Malaysia; The ... Read More
Surgical and interventional cardiology • Adult congenital heart surgery • Angioplasty and stenting • Aortic and thoracic endografts • Carotid artery stenting, carotid endarterectomy, and atherectomy • Complex lower extremity revascularization (also known as limb salvage) • Coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery, including traditional surgery, robotic minimally inva... Read More
Molecular cardiology Molecular cardiology is fast growing area which focus on the application of molecular biological techniques for investigation, diagnosis, prevention and treatment. For the development of gene therapy and stem cell therapy for heart diseases, molecular cardiology is important to know. Related societies: Association of Black Cardiologists; Algerian... Read More
Cardio oncology Cardio oncology is characterized as the interdisciplinary field of medication which helps to concentrate on the heart conditions of patients who have been treated for malignant growth. The main aim of this track is to discover a harmony between oncologic viability and decreasing unfavorable cardiovascular impacts. Related societies: Canadian Car... Read More
Sports and exercise cardiology It is a multidisciplinary approach for evaluation of cardiac ability and function in athletes. It provides the athletes the maximum support to reach their goals. Related societies: Brazilian Society of Cardiology; Heart Failure Society of America; The Japanese Heart Failure Society; Japanese Society of Echocardiography; ; British Heart Failure So... Read More
Cardiac regeneration It is defined as regeneration of lost or injured tissues or organs of heart. However large organs like skin and liver loses the ability to regenerate, there is a hope for heart and lung tissues to regenerate. • Tissue graft cardiac cell replacement. • Cardiac remodeling • Cardiac regenerative therapy • Congenital heart disease and regen... Read More
Drug management in cardiovascular diseases Drug treatment is important to control various abnormalities in cardiovascular diseases. They also prevent further complications. Classes of drugs that are used in the treatment of these conditions are: • Anti-hypertensives • Anti-anginal • Cardio tonic drugs • Diuretics • Anti-arrhythmic drugs • Thrombolytic drugs • Anti-coagu...
