New Research on Atrial Fibrillation and Ischemic Heart Disease

New Research on Atrial Fibrillation and Ischemic Heart Disease

Author: Edward S. Hill Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 23/03/2020

Atrial fibrillation is a common supraventricular arrhythmia characterized by rapid and irregular atrial activation without a clear P-wave on an electrocardiogram. New Research on Atrial Fibrillation and Ischemic Heart Disease begins by discussing the risk factors, symptoms, and treatment of atrial fibrillation. Following this, the authors review the recently established relationship of atrial fibrillation with endurance sports activities in middle-aged athletes, connecting findings from various evidence in order to investigate this phenomenon since the pathophysiology of atrial fibrillation in middle-aged athletes is still unclear. Also explored are the associations between cerebrovascular risk factors and abnormal carotid and transcranial Doppler sonography and brain magnetic resonance imaging findings in individuals aged between 44 and 71 years without preceding neurological and psychiatric disorders. The association between perceived occupational noise exposure and hypertension among hospital nurses is examined, as hospital noise pollution is increasing worldwide. The concluding study aims to update and extend the existing burden of disease calculations by the WHO for road traffic noise-attributed myocardial infarction and stroke. All analyses were limited to 24 European countries and the year 2012.

Congenital Heart Disease: From Diagnosis to Treatment

Congenital Heart Disease: From Diagnosis to Treatment

Author: Curtis GiguAre Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 02/03/2020

Congenital Heart Disease: From Diagnosis to Treatment opens with a review of the most common forms of congenital heart disease in pregnancy, outlines preconception counseling, discusses the associated morbidity and mortality of each lesion, and reviews current recommendations for the management of congenital heart disease in pregnancy. Women with congenital heart disease represent over 50% of patients with cardiac disease in pregnancy today. Formerly characterized by high rates of maternal morbidity and mortality, the authors explore how advancements in medical management and surgical intervention are responsible for increasing numbers of women with congenital heart defects experiencing safe and successful pregnancies. Additionally, the authors discuss cardiac resynchronization therapy in adults with congenital heart disease. Treatment in the setting of heart failure is challenging due to heterogeneity of the underlying anatomy and physiology, surgical scars, residual shunts and valvular dysfunction. Since donor hearts are scarce, worldwide interest has increased for the application of cardiac resynchronization therapy in this relatively young population. This compilation goes on to discuss the four different types of atrial septal defects, categorized based on location and embryological development. While bicuspid aortic valve is the most common congenital heart anomaly in adults, atrial septal defects are not far behind, accounting for 10-15% of congenital heart disease. In the penultimate study, the authors focus on the state of the liver in children with congenital heart disease and chronic heart failure. Congenital heart disease represented: ventricular septal defect a in 26,7% of patients, secondary atrial septal defect a in 24,4% of children, a double discharge of the main vessels of the right ventricle a in 15,6% of patients, common atrioventricular canal a at 15,6% of children, tetralogy of Fallot a at 11,1% of patients, etc. The concluding study reviews the effects of high altitude effects on congenital heart disease in the Andean region, and in Ecuador as a study case. High-altitude hypoxia presents numerous challenges to human health, survival, and reproduction because of decreased oxygen availability brought on by lowered barometric pressure at high elevations.
