- Abdominal aortic aneurysm
An aorta is basically the major artery responsible for supplying blood from the heart to the rest of the body. An abdominal aorta is the main blood vessel at the level of the abdomen. Hence, an Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm is the enlargement of this abdominal aorta which can be fatal if it implodes. It is common in older men and chain smokers. Cure/medications for Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm With safe and effecti Read More
Angina, also known as ischemic chest pain, is a result of a deficient flow of blood to the heart. It can be a symptom of coronary artery disease. Patients describe this pain as recurrent or sudden squeezing, pressure, heaviness and tightness in the chest. A primary cause could be fatty substances building up in the arteries supplying blood to the heart. Cure/medication for Angina A healthy fusion of behavior Read More
- Atrial fibrillation
Atrial fibrillation (A-fib) is an irregular and often very rapid heart rhythm (arrhythmia) that can lead to blood clots in the heart. A-fib increases the risk of stroke, heart failure and other heart-related complications.
- Da costa's syndrome
Da costa’s syndrome is also known as chronic asthenia or as cardiac neurosis. This condition is being studied for more than a hundred years for now and the description of this condition was described by the conditions of the soldiers. Usually, the symptoms of Da costa’s syndrome are more or less similar to that of various heart diseases.
An individual affected with Da costa’s syndrome may experience fatigue and dizziness upon exertion, har Read More
- Endocardial cushion defects
Yes, there is a cure for endocardial cushion defects. However, it is not always the most effective method of treatment.Endocardial cushion defects are often discovered in early infancy when the child has a heart murmur or irregular heartbeat. In some cases, doctors may not diagnose a defect until adulthood.If you have an endocardial cushion defect, you may need regular checkups with your primary care physician to m Read More
- Endocardial dysplasia
The risk factors for endocardial dysplasia vary depending on the type of the condition. The most common risk factor is a history of congenital heart disease, but there are also other risk factors that can be related to genetics or family history.If you have a family member who has had a heart condition, especially one that required surgery, it's more likely that you'll develop endocardial dysplasia than someone who doesn't Read More
- Functional cardiovascular disease
Functional cardiovascular disease is a term used to describe a group of disorders that affect the heart and blood vessels. These disorders cause symptoms such as chest pain, shortness of breath, palpitations, dizziness, and lightheadedness.The symptoms of functional cardiovascular disease are similar to those caused by more serious conditions like coronary artery disease (CAD) or heart failure. However, because these sympto Read More
- Heart disease and cardiac catheterization
Heart diseases are caused by various factors and are of multiple types. While some heart diseases are related to the blood vessels and arteries, others might be caused due to irregular heart rhythm. The types of heart diseases with their symptoms can be seen below.
•Problems in blood vessels- fatty plaques in the arteries and damaged or blocked blood vessels can cause heart diseases, whose symptoms include chest pain or pressure, or discomfort Read More
- Jervell and lange-nielsen syndrome
Jervell and Lange-Nielsen syndrome is a rare genetic illness characterized by congenital deafness that occurs in conjunction with anomalies in the heart's electrical system. The severity of JLNS-related cardiac symptoms varies among individuals. Some people have no symptoms (asymptomatic); others develop abnormally fast heartbeats (tachyarrhythmias), which can cause bouts of unconsciousness, cardiogenic shock, and potential Read More
- Loeffler fibroplastic parietal endocardi...
Wilhelm Loeffler initially described Loeffler's endocarditis in 1936, labeling it ""fibroplastic parietal endocarditis with blood eosinophilia.Endocarditis parietalis fibroplastica is a rare, deadly disease with an unknown cause is a type of subendocardial mural fibrosis that worsens over time. It is linked to peripheral blood eosinophilia, occasionally of leukemoid proportions.Loeffler's endocarditis is an unusual Read More
- Non-obstructive hypertrophic cardiomyopa...
Non-obstructive hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is a condition in which the heart muscle becomes enlarged and stiff. This can make it difficult for your heart to pump blood effectively, causing symptoms such as shortness of breath, chest pain, dizziness, fatigue and fainting spells.In some cases, you may also be diagnosed with mitral valve prolapse (MVP), which is caused by a defect in the valve separating your Read More
- Romano-ward long qt syndrome
Romano-Ward long QT syndrome is a rare heart rhythm disorder that causes abnormal heartbeats. These abnormal heartbeats can lead to a dangerous and life-threatening condition called ventricular fibrillation, which causes the heart to stop beating effectively. In people with Romano-Ward long QT syndrome, these abnormal heartbeats occur more often than in people without the condition.Romano-Ward long QT syndrome can Read More
- Sneddon syndrome
Sneddon syndrome is a rare, progressive blood vessel disease. Specifically, arteries transports pure blood away from the heart and into the body. It is largely characterized by net-like patterns of discoloration on the skin (livedo reticularis) and neurological problems caused by artery obstructions. It usually affects older adults, and the clinical manifestations starts with old age. Individual differences in symptoms and sev Read More
If you're like most Americans, you plan for your future. When you take a job, you examine its benefit plan. When you buy a home, you consider its location and condition so that your investment is safe. Today, more and more Americans are protecting their most important asset--their health. Are you?
Stroke ranks as the third leading killer in the United States. A stroke can be devastating to individuals and their fam Read More
- Surdocardiac syndrome -- jervell and lan...
Surdo Cardiac syndrome - Jervell and Lange-Nielsen is a rare genetic disorder that causes abnormal electrical impulse passage in the heart. It is most common during fetal development as a result of a genetic mutation, and it can cause arrhythmias, fainting, seizures, and cerebral palsy. Although there is no cure, treatments are available to help manage symptoms and prevent complications.The severity of these sympto Read More
- Takayasu disease (takayasu arteritis)
There is no cure for takayasu disease (takayasu arteritis). However, a comprehensive treatment plan can be followed to improve the symptoms, reduce inflammation and prevent irreversible damage to artery walls. Takayasu disease or Takayasu Arteritis (TAK) is a type of vasculitis, a rare familial disorder characterized by inflammation of blood vessels. The condition affects the aorta and its branches, which resist the flow of bl Read More
- Thoracoabdominal syndrome
One of the rare disorders with birth in an infant (maximum males) is called Thoracoabdominal Syndrome. Due to its association with all the crucial blood-vessel that connect parts of the heart and abdomen, it affects the area from the lungs, spine, and breastbone to the abdominal area and intestines. •Furthermore, it is linked with the defect of the diaphragm (the most significant respiratory musc Read More
- Ventricular septal defect
A ventricular septal defect is the second most cardiac abnormality in adults, often congenital. The ventricular septum is a curved structure that demarcates the two ventricles of the heart. Developmental abnormality of septal formation during complex processes of cardiac morphogenesis leads to the defect. VSDs can occur due to genetic factors such as chromosomal aberrations, single genes, and polygenic mutations. Toxins like a 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
