- Coa syndrome
Babies with severe coarctation of the aorta may begin having symptoms shortly after birth. These include:
People with coarctation of the aorta may also have signs or symptoms of other heart defects, which often occur with the condition.
Signs or symptoms of coarctation of the aorta after i Read More
- Endocardial fibroelastosis
Risk factors for endocardial fibroelastosis include:
Age – The older you are, the more likely it is that you will develop endocardial fibroelastosis. This condition occurs most commonly in people over 65 years of age, but it has been found in individuals as young as 30 years old and even infants.
Family history – If your parents or siblings have had this condition, then you have a higher risk as well. It's Read More
- Fibroelastic endocarditis
The cause of fibroelastic endocarditis/Endomyocardial fibrosis (EMF), is not known, but it can be treated using antibiotics.
If you have fibroelastic endocarditis, it's important to take your medication as prescribed by your doctor.
The treatment for fibroelastic endocarditis will depend on what type of valve is affected and how severe the infection is.
In some cases, surgery may be needed to replace damaged Read More
- Fiedler disease
Fiedler disease is a rare genetic disorder that causes the immune system to attack healthy skin cells. The disease is most common in people of European descent, but it can be found in people of all races and ethnicities.The risk factors for Fiedler disease are not well understood, but researchers believe that there may be some things that make you more likely to develop the disease. These include:
Age: Ch Read More
- Heart transplant
People who need a heart transplant are typically those whose conditions haven't improved enough with medication or other procedures.Heart transplant treatment
Your doctor might suggest particular procedures or surgery if drugs are insufficient for your heart problems. Open-heart surgery for heart transplants lasts for several hours. If you've had previous cardiac operations, the procedure will be more difficult and t Read More
- Mirror-image dextrocardia
Mirror-image dextrocardia, the most prevalent type of cardiac malposition encountered, is dextrocardia, which is almost always linked to situs inversus of the abdominal organs. The aortic arch curves to the right and posteriorly, and the anatomic right ventricle is ahead of the left ventricle. On the left side is the three-lobed anatomic right lung. In general, the risk of an infracardiac malformation is not increased.Risk factors Read More
- Triatrial heart
The risk factors that can be managed (modified) include high blood pressure, high cholesterol, smoking, diabetes, being overweight or obese, not exercising enough, eating poorly, and stress.
Age (just becoming older raises risk), sex (men are often at higher risk of coronary artery disease), family history, and race are those that cannot be controlled (conventional).
The primary traditional cardiovascular risk factor Read More
- Wolff parkinson white syndrome
Episodes of a fast heart rate (tachycardia) can begin suddenly and may last a few seconds or several hours. Episodes can occur during exercise or while at rest.
Other signs and symptoms of WPW syndrome are related to the fast heart rate and underlying heart rhythm problem (arrhythmia). The most common arrhythmia seen with WPW syndrome is supraventricular tachycardia. Supraventricular tachycardia causes episodes of a fast, pounding hear Read More
