Anti-heart autoantibodies in ischaemic heart disease patients. (1/4783)

One hundred and ninety-nine ischaemic heart disease (IHD) patients were studied with regard to the prevalence of anti-heart autoantibodies (AHA). The incidence of AHA in IHD patients was 1%: one out of 102 patients who suffered acute myocardial infarction (AMI), one out of seventy-two patients who suffered from acute coronary insufficiency (ACI), and none out of twenty-five patients with other signs and symptoms of IHD, had AHA in their sera. An additional 2% of patients who suffered from AMI developed detectable antibody levels during a follow-up period of 15 days. In comparison,, 53% of patients (eight out of fifteen) who underwent heart surgery and who had no AHA prior to operation, developed these antibodies in their sera during 1-2 weeks following operation.  (+info)

Failing firefighters: a survey of causes of death and ill-health retirement in serving firefighters in Strathclyde, Scotland from 1985-94. (2/4783)

During the decade beginning 1 January 1985, 887 full-time firefighters, all male, left the service of Strathclyde Fire Brigade (SFB). There were 17 deaths--compared to 64.4 expected in the Scottish male population aged 15-54 years--giving a standardized mortality ratio (SMR) of 26, and 488 ill-health retirements (IHR). None of the deaths was attributable to service, the major causes being: myocardial infarction--five, (expected = 17.3; SMR = 29); cancers--three (colon, kidney and lung) (expected = 13.6; SMR = 22); road traffic accidents--two (expected = 4.17; SMR = 48) and suicide--two (expected = 4.9; SMR = 41). Amalgamating the deaths and IHRs showed that the six most common reasons for IHR were musculoskeletal (n = 202, 40%), ocular (n = 61, 12.1%), 'others' (n = 58, 11.5%), injuries (n = 50, 9.9%), heart disease (n = 48, 9.5%) and mental disorders (n = 45, 8.9%). Over 300 IHRs (over 60%) occurred after 20 or more years service. When the IHRs were subdivided into two quinquennia, there were 203 and 302 in each period. Mean length of service during each quinquennium was 19.4 vs. 21.3 years (p = 0.003) and median length was 21 years in both periods; interquartile range was 12-26 years in the first and 17-27 years in the second period (p = 0.002), but when further broken down into diagnostic categories, the differences were not statistically significant, with the exception of means of IHRs attributed to mental disorders (14.5 vs. 19 years, p = 0.03).  (+info)

Enhanced myocardial glucose use in patients with a deficiency in long-chain fatty acid transport (CD36 deficiency). (3/4783)

CD36 is a multifunctional, 88 kDa glycoprotein that is expressed on platelets and monocytes/macrophages. CD36 also has high homology with the long-chain fatty acid (LFA) transporter in the myocardium. Although platelet and monocyte CD36 levels can indicate a CD36 deficiency, they cannot predict specific clinical manifestations in the myocardium of a given person. We examined the hypothesis that a deficiency in LFA transport augments myocardial glucose uptake in patients with a type I CD36 deficiency. METHODS: Seven fasting patients with a type I CD36 deficiency and 9 controls were assessed by cardiac radionuclide imaging using beta-methyl-p-iodophenyl-pentadecanoic acid (BMIPP) as a LFA tracer and by PET with 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG). RESULTS: None of the patients with a CD36 deficiency showed myocardial uptake of BMIPP. The percentage dose uptake of BMIPP in these subjects was significantly lower than that in normal controls (1.31+/-0.24 versus 2.90+/-0.2; P < 0.005). PET studies revealed that myocardial FDG accumulation was substantially increased in patients with a CD36 deficiency. Quantitative analysis showed that the percentage dose uptake of FDG in patients with a CD36 deficiency was significantly higher than that in normal controls (1.28+/-0.35 versus 0.43+/-0.22; P< 0.01). CONCLUSION: CD36 functions as a major myocardial LFA transporter and its absence may cause a compensatory upregulation of myocardial glucose uptake.  (+info)

Cardiocutaneous fistula. (4/4783)

Infection of the Teflon pledgets on the heart suture line after left ventricular aneurysm repair, presenting late with a fistulous tract connecting the heart with the skin (cardiocutaneous fistula) is an uncommon but potentially serious condition. The case is reported of a 73 year old man who developed a cardiocutaneous fistula extending through the left hemidiaphragm and draining at the abdominal wall, which developed six years after left ventricular aneurysmectomy. Following radiographic evaluation, which established the diagnosis, the Teflon pledgets and fistulous tract were successfully surgically removed. Prompt diagnosis depends on a high index of suspicion. Eradication of infection requires excision of infected material, which must be planned on an individual basis.  (+info)

Usefulness of fractional flow reserve to predict clinical outcome after balloon angioplasty. (5/4783)

BACKGROUND: After regular coronary balloon angioplasty, it would be helpful to identify those patients who have a low cardiac event rate. Coronary angiography alone is not sensitive enough for that purpose, but it has been suggested that the combination of optimal angiographic and optimal functional results indicates a low restenosis chance. Pressure-derived myocardial fractional flow reserve (FFR) is an index of the functional severity of the residual epicardial lesion and could be useful for that purpose. METHODS AND RESULTS: In 60 consecutive patients with single-vessel disease, balloon angioplasty was performed by use of a pressure instead of a regular guide wire. Both quantitative coronary angiography (QCA) and measurement of FFR were performed 15 minutes after the procedure. A successful angioplasty result, defined as a residual diameter stenosis (DS) <50%, was achieved in 58 patients. In these patients, DS and FFR, measured 15 minutes after PTCA, were analyzed in relation to clinical outcome. In those 26 patients with both optimal angiographic (residual DS by QCA /=0.90) results, event-free survival rates at 6, 12, and 24 months were 92+/-5%, 92+/-5%, and 88+/-6%, respectively, versus 72+/-8%, 69+/-8%, and 59+/-9%, respectively, in the remaining 32 patients in whom the angiographic or functional result or both were suboptimal (P=0.047, P=0.028, and P=0.014, respectively). CONCLUSIONS: In patients with a residual DS /=0.90, clinical outcome up to 2 years is excellent. Therefore, there is a complementary value of coronary angiography and coronary pressure measurement in the evaluation of PTCA result.  (+info)

An unusual family of benign "X" linked muscular dystrophy with cardiac involvement. (6/4783)

A family of benign X-linked muscular dystrophy is described. Two of the 3 affected members appear quite representative of Becker's dystrophy. A third shows no pseudohypertrophy, only gross atrophy, affecting proximal and distal muscles and also shows early onset contractures and electrocardiographic abnormalities and is in these ways much more representative of the variety described by Emery and Dreifuss (1966). Two of the cases have distinctly abnormal electrocardiograms with extensive and deep Q waves and abnormal R/S ratios and VI. Both these have shown progression of electrocardiographic abnormalities during a 2-year follow-up. The family is reported to document this very unusual occurrence.  (+info)

Intensive care management of stroke patients. (7/4783)

Two hundred eighty patients were admitted to an intensive care stroke unit over a one-year period. Subsequent investigation indicated that only 199 of these patients actually had cerebral ischemic or hemorrhagic lesions, 10 had other cerebrovascular lesions, and the remaining 71 patients had unrelated diseases, predominantly seizures. Detailed analysis of 103 stroke patients revealed an overall incidence of 59% hypertension, and 72% had hypertensive, ischemic or valvular heart disease. Fifty percent of the patients had various cardiac arrhythmias, some of which were responsible for the acute cerebrovascular lesion. Fourteen patients died during the acute phase, 11 from apparently irreversible cerebral selling, mainly due to cerebral hemorrhage. Secondary complications such as pneumonia, pulmonary embolism, pressure sores and urinary infection were almost nonexistent, but beneficial effects on the primary cerebral lesions were more difficult to demonstrate.  (+info)

Digitalis. (8/4783)

Cardiac glycosides have played a prominent role in the therapy of congestive heart failure since William Withering codified their use in his late 18th century monograph on the efficacy of the leaves of the common foxglove plant (Digitalis purpurea). Despite their widespread acceptance into medical practice in the ensuing 200 years, both the efficacy and the safety of this class of drugs continue to be a topic of debate. Moreover, despite the fact that the molecular target for the cardiac glycosides, the alpha-subunit of sarcolemmal Na+K+-ATPase (or sodium pump) found on most eukaryotic cell membranes, has been known for several decades, it remains controversial whether the sympatholytic or positive inotropic effects of these agents is the mechanism most relevant to relief of heart failure symptoms in humans with systolic ventricular dysfunction. Herein, we review the molecular and clinical pharmacology of this venerable class of drugs, as well as the manifestations of digitalis toxicity and their treatment. We also review in some detail recent clinical trials designed to examine the efficacy of these drugs in heart failure, with a focus on the Digoxin Investigation Group data set. Although, in our opinion, the data on balance warrant the continued use of these drugs for the treatment of symptoms of heart failure in patients already receiving contemporary multidrug therapy for this disease, the use of digitalis preparations will inevitably decline with the maturation of newer pharmacotherapies.  (+info)

Sorry to hear about your problem. Just wanted to ask you a few questions. How old was your mother when she died? Also, do you smoke, have been exposed to smoke for a long period of time, or have any chronic pulmonary problems? The reason I ask these questions is that it usually takes years (more than your age) to develop atrial enlargement from COPD. Also, it is really important to find out about your family history of cardiac problems, especially serious ones at an early age. This is definitely something your doctor needs to know. If I were you, I would go to a cardiologist as soon as you get insurance. If you have anymore symptoms prior to getting insurance, go the the ER. I know its expensive, but it just may save your life. Dont mean to scare you, but anything to do with the heart can be very serious. Many times when someone of your age complains of any type of chest pains, doctors may assume its anxiety but never let anyone assume that. Have all the tests done just to be safe. Anyway, ...

Left ventricular thrombus is a blood clot (thrombus) in the left ventricle of the heart. LVT is a common complication of acute myocardial infarction (AMI). Typically the clot is a mural thrombus, meaning it is on the wall of the ventricle. The primary risk of LVT is the occurrence of cardiac embolism, in which the thrombus detaches from the ventricular wall and travels through the circulation and blocks blood vessels. Blockage can be especially damaging in the heart or brain (stroke). LVT occurs most often during the first 2 weeks following AMI. AMI patients most at risk display the 3 characteristics of Virchows triad: The risk of LVT formation increases as infarction size increases. A larger infarction means a larger area of tissue injury, which may be akinetic or dyskinetic, resulting in stagnation of ventricular blood. Monocytes and macrophages play important roles in healing after myocardial infarction. With the absence of monocytes and macrophages, chances of LVT formation are very high. ...

Heart disease is a very common disease which is affecting approximately around more than 7% of the population. The most common from of heart disease is known as arteriosclerosis. Arteriosclerosis form of heart disease usually leads to heart attack in the patient. This form of heart disease is characterized by a sudden process where the arteries often get hardened. Besides arteriosclerosis, there are also some other forms of heart disease which are often found to be very much deadly. Cardiomyopathy is yet another form of heart disease which impairs the hearts function. Cardiomyopathy form of heart disease often damages and weakens the heart. But the most important and the most dangerous from of heart disease is that which eventually damages the entire functioning of the heart. It may start from a simple form of throat infection which when not taken care of or when not treated may lead to the ultimate damage of the heart valves.. Heart disease may be any one among the various types but more ...

The most common etiology of bilateral AIS in patients in our stroke registry is cardioembolic stroke. Cardioembolic stroke occurs when a formed clot, typically in the left atrium, embolizes and travels into multiple vascular territories of the brain, effectively showering emboli throughout multiple parenchymal regions. We diagnosed etiology as cardioembolic per the Causative Classification of Stroke System[14], using TTE and/or TEE to identify potential cardiac sources of infarction. However, despite a higher rate of cardioembolic classification in patients suffering bilateral AIS than unilateral AIS, bilateral AIS did not increase the odds of cardioembolic stroke etiology. Yet, our results show that TEE was performed significantly more during workup of bilateral AIS etiology (Table 4), suggesting possible overutilization of resources and presenting an opportunity to reduce invasive workup, cost, and hospital length of stay.. Consistent with a previous study showing an association between ...
Among 364 patients, 31 (8.5%) developed LVT. The mean age was 62 years, 75% were men, and mean LVEF was 46%. Patients developing LVT had increased heart rate, lower LVEF, impaired GLS, and more frequently had prior myocardial infarction. Variables associated with low values of EPI included, among others, LVEF, LV aneurysm, and GLS. EPI and LVT formation were significantly associated in the univariable model (OR = 1.87 (1.53-2.28), p , 0.001), and EPI showed an AUC of 0.90. After multivariable adjustments, EPI and LVT formation remained significantly associated (OR = 1.79 (1.42-2.27), p , 0.001). Patients with an EPI , 1.0 had a 23 times higher likelihood of LVT formation (OR = 23.41 (10.06-54.49), p , 0.001). EPI and LVT formation are strongly associated in patients with STEMI, with low values of EPI indicating a markedly increased probability of LVT formation ...

Pregnancy has always been a major concern in patients with heart disease. Although many women with pre-existing heart disorders tolerate pregnancy well, complications are frequent and in some cases include life threatening conditions for mother and child. In western countries maternal heart disease has indeed become the major cause of maternal death during pregnancy. Furthermore, pregnancy can have a negative impact on the long term course of heart disease.1 Thus, screening for heart disease, appropriate risk assessment, and counselling are crucial. In women at risk who nevertheless desire pregnancy or who present already pregnant, adequate measures during pregnancy and delivery that may reduce complications and optimise outcome have to be taken.. The spectrum of heart disease in pregnancy has changed and differs among regions around the world. In the western world, the risk of cardiovascular disease in pregnancy has increased because of advanced age at first pregnancy and the increasing ...
Our study shows that nongated cardiac CTA can be readily incorporated into the acute stroke scanning protocol to effectively provide hyperacute screening for cardioembolic sources with minimal increase in time taken or radiation delivered and no increase in contrast dose. Discovering abnormalities through this expanded field of imaging may enable physicians to initiate treatment more promptly and better prognosticate the risk of recurrent stroke.. Although TTE is widely available, it is operator dependent and is often technically challenging with poor acoustic windows. It is not specific for detection of cardioembolic sources and can at times fail to detect a cardiac thrombus. TEE is considered the gold standard for the detection of potential cardiac sources of cerebral embolism but is an invasive procedure, requiring specially trained personnel and is usually performed under sedation, which may not be ideal for all AIS patients.11-13. To our knowledge, this is the first such study using ...

An worldwide analyze led by the College of Otago has disclosed how physical exercise can lower the chance of diabetic issues primary on to coronary heart illness. The analysis has identified that training triggers the launch of tiny sequences of genetic code in the coronary heart called microRNA, which raise protein creation to boost heart composition and functionality.. The study, Training regulates microRNAs to maintain coronary and cardiac function in the diabetic heart, has just lately been revealed in the journal Circulation Investigate.. Associate Professors Daryl Schwenke and Rajesh Katare, of Otagos Department of Physiology, observed that precise microRNA are adversely altered in the early phases of diabetes. These altered microRNA can reliably forecast the inescapable onset of heart condition. Affiliate Professor Katare thinks this is a pivotal new progress as microRNA can serve as a trustworthy early biomarker for heart condition in diabetic issues.. Weve proven that by using ...

According to studies, about 60% of the patients who consults for a cardiac condition are actually suffering from an exaggerated and unnecessary anxiety feeling and not quite based from verifiable evidence. These people who experience the common symptoms of a heart disease are likely just assuming to have cardiac problems but the results of examinations never really shows that they have one.. Patients suffering from cardiac neurosis believe that they have poor cardiac activity, thus concludes that their feelings of discomforts are due to having a heart ailment. The emotional reactions of patients of this disease may greatly vary as some may just have feelings of fears, while others may have a tendency of shortness of breath to suffocation and consequently become hysterical, panicking, or even conceive that they are going to die.. Most researchers suggests that the reason why patients assume that they have some kind of cardiac ailment is due to false information or comment given by either a ...

First, I had to ask myself, What do heart disease and cancer have in common?. 4. Heart disease and cancer all have a genetic factor. Well, thats true, yet the genetic factor only affects small percentage of population, and is beyond our control.. 3. Heart disease and cancer are associated with aging. While aging is inevitable, how you age inside and outside is really up to you nowadays.. 2. Heart disease and cancer have been linked to inflammation. Accumulating evidence suggests that inflammation plays an important role in the development of heart disease and cancer. The body produces elevated level of C-reactive protein (CRP) in response to inflammation, and studies show that CRP, a marker of inflammation, is tied to risks of developing heart attack, stroke and cancer.. 1. Heart disease and cancer are significantly influenced by poor lifestyle factors, including obesity, dietary, and other behavioral habits. Everybody knows that smoking can cause lung cancer, but not everybody is aware of ...
Famed cardiologist Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn once called heart disease a toothless paper tiger that need never ever exist. And if it does exist, it need never, ever progress. Yet heart disease kills more Americans every few years than ALL of our previous wars combined. Most alarming, people who die from a heart attack get no warning sign whatsoever. In fact, in his book How Not To Die, Dr. Michael Greger says of sudden cardiac deaths, you may not even realize youre at risk until its too late. And for some, their very first symptom may be their last. Here one minute…and gone the next. Its scary, and unnecessary. Yet a heart attack is also the number one reason that most of us, and those we love, will die. In fact, every 40 seconds an American will die of a heart attack, which equals 610,000 annual deaths from heart disease in the United States every year-thats 1 in every 4 deaths. So what is coronary heart disease, or CHD? Is it preventable? And if so, how?. Heart disease is a catchall ...

Introduction: Heart disease is the leading cause of stroke in children; however, little is known about the distribution of cardiac conditions associated with stroke.. Hypothesis: We assessed the hypothesis that patients requiring cardiac surgery, catheterization, or mechanical support account for the majority of strokes in children with heart disease.. Methods: All patients admitted to Lucile Packard Childrens Hospital at Stanford were included. A new diagnosis of stroke was identified using hospital data. Descriptive statistics were used to evaluate the characteristics of the population and tabulate common causes of stroke and stroke sub-types.. Results: Between September 1, 2009 and February 1, 2014, a total of 36 patients with congenital or acquired heart disease had a new diagnosis of stroke. The median age was 4.18 years (IQR 0.32 - 10.6 years); 64% were male. Overall, 50% of strokes were arterial ischemic, 17% hemorrhagic and 25% had both ischemic and hemorrhagic components. Transient ...
Women and Heart Disease; lower the risk know the facts More than any other lethal combination researchers have looked at, women and heart disease have resulted in a higher percentage of deaths among women than breast and cervical cancer combined. For reasons yet unknown, women appear to be at greater risk of heart disease than men, outranking the incidence by a 2 to 1 ratio. Long overlooked by researchers as the subjects of heart disease studies, women also often died as a result of their physicians lack of insight in diagnosing females. Finally that is changing. Knowing the facts about women and heart disease can literally mean the difference between life and death.
The cardiac effects of treatment for malignancy are likely to become an increasing problem over the coming decades. This issue is multifactorial and reflects the evolution of cancer from a malignant illness to a chronic disease, as well as the widespread use of cardiotoxic agents. Two groups of patients seem to be especially at risk. In survivors of childhood cancer, the risk for recurrence or progression of malignancy rapidly diminishes after a decade, and cardiac complications are the main cause of cancer-related mortality that is unrelated to recurrence (1). In adults, several of the most common malignancies (especially breast cancer and lymphoma) are often treated with anthracyclines and/or radiotherapy (2). Breast cancer is the most common source of cardiac problems, reflecting its frequency, the cardiotoxic effects of specific chemotherapy, and the consequences of radiation to the left breast. Improvements in detection and therapy have led to ,2 million American women who will have ...

September 15, 2020 - The world is facing a global pandemic with unknown implications, but it is now well known COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2) can have a severe impact on the heart. Patients with underlying heart disease or diabetes are at higher risk of severe illness for COVID-19.. Because of this, ultrasound of the heart, which can be performed at the bedside, has become a key tool for clinicians while treating and monitoring COVID-19 patients. Ultrasound helps healthcare providers by quickly gathering information on a patients heart condition in a consistent, repeatable way. It has proven useful as it is easy to clean and transport in and out of the small, negative pressure rooms being used to isolate patients.. With the cardiac implications of COVID-19 coming to the forefront, Bill Shirkey, RDCS, FASE, director of cardiac imaging at Naples Community Hospital System in Florida, explains his experience using point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) for monitoring patients with cardiac complications during the ...

Rhodiola has also been shown to be effective for cardiac problems caused or aggravated by stress. Its action for these conditions is in its ability to decrease the amount of catecholamines and corticosteroids released by the adrenal glands during stress. The abnormal presence of these stress hormones will subsequently raise blood pressure, cholesterol, potassium levels and increase risk factors for heart disease. Rhodiola has been found to decrease harmful blood lipids and thus decrease the risk of heart disease. It also decreases the amount of cyclic-AMP (c-AMP) released into cardiac cells. Cyclic AMP is related to ATP (adenosine triphosphate), the bodys primary energy molecule. C-AMP acts as a second messenger or liaison between the outer and inner environments of the cell. It assists in the uptake of more intracellular calcium into the heart thus promoting a greater potential for heart muscle contraction. Rhodiola thus regulates the heartbeat and counteracts heart arrhythmias ...
The problem with heart disease is that the symptoms often present when the disease is much advanced. This is partly because people ignore and compensate for the early warning signs, or if they do present to their physicians, they get palmed off with some specious excuse like its your age, or you are just unfit. Fatigue and inability to get fit are often the best warning signs that the heart cannot deal with an increased work load. This is why regular exercise is so important - the early warning symptoms come sooner. One must always be on the look out for warning symptoms, pay attention to family history and screen for risk factors. If you have a bad family history of heart disease, you must be screened for the risk factors - see Arteriosclerosis - what causes it and how to prevent it and Ischaemic Heart Disease - what really causes it?. If there is a particular form of heart disease in the family, such as cardiomyopathy, look for that too. Men are a particular problem because symptoms of ...
Heart disease are the conditions involving blocked or narrowed blood vessels, which could lead to a heart attack, stroke or angina (chest pain).
