I schemic heart disease remains a most common illness and a leading cause of death. The purpose of this issue is to delineate currently accepted concepts for the management of transient myocardial… Expand
Hypertension in Sub-Saharan African Populations
Background— Hypertension in sub-Saharan Africa is a widespread problem of immense economic importance because of its high prevalence in urban areas, its frequent underdiagnosis, and the severity of… Expand
Controversies in ventricular remodelling
Ventricular remodelling describes structural changes in the left ventricle in response to chronic alterations in loading conditions, with three major patterns: concentric remodelling, when a pressure… Expand
Ischaemic postconditioning protects against reperfusion injury via the SAFE pathway.
AIMS Ischaemic postconditioning (IPostC) is a powerful protective phenomenon that activates prosurvival intrinsic signalling cascades to limit reperfusion injury. We propose that IPostC confers its… Expand
Corrigendum to: ‘2013 ESC guidelines on the management of stable coronary artery disease’
[Eur Heart J (2013);34:2949–3003; doi:10.1093/eurheartj/eht296]. In the legends for Figures 6 and 7, the amount of fractional flow reserve should read ‘< 0.80’ instead of ‘=0.80.’ There was also …
Metabolic mechanisms in heart failure.
Although neurohumoral antagonism has successfully reduced heart failure morbidity and mortality, the residual disability and death rate remains unacceptably high. Though abnormalities of myocardial… Expand
Pharmacological Preconditioning With Tumor Necrosis Factor-α Activates Signal Transducer and Activator of Transcription-3 at Reperfusion Without Involving Classic Prosurvival Kinases (Akt and…
Background— We previously reported that tumor necrosis-factor-α (TNF-α) can mimic classic ischemic preconditioning (IPC) in a dose- and time-dependent manner. Because TNF-α activates the signal… Expand
