Pathophysiology and Prevention of Atrial Fibrillation
Atrial fibrillation (AF) is a ubiquitous yet diverse cardiac arrhythmia whose incidence increases with age; with most forms of cardiac and some pulmonary diseases; and with a number of metabolic,Expand
Disruption of the myocardial extracellular matrix leads to cardiac dysfunction.
TLDR
This is the first animal model demonstrating that direct disruption of the extracellular matrix in the heart reproduces the changes observed in the progression of human heart failure. Expand
Gender-specific care of the patient with diabetes: review and recommendations.
TLDR
Gender-specific care of the patient with diabetes should be informed by evidence-based recommendations, and critical recommendations for women include exercise, testing for CAD, daily aspirin to counteract the prothrombotic state, depression screening, careful treatment to avoid weight gain, and aggressive treatment with coronary angioplasty for CAD. Expand
Women's perceptions of their general health, with special reference to their risk of coronary artery disease: results of a national telephone survey.
TLDR
A surprisingly large number of women are either not counseled at all or are inadequately counseled about their susceptibility to CAD, and the quality of the assessment of these women for CAD and thequality of the treatment they receive are subject to question. Expand
Coronary artery disease in women.

  • Medicine
  • International journal of fertility and menopausal…
  • 1 March 1996
TLDR
Since 1988, a flood of new information established that the epidemiology, risk factors, clinical features, outcome and therapeutic choices physicians make for female patients with cardiovascular disease are significantly different from those of men. Expand
Ultrastructure of the Atrial, Ventricular, and Purkinje Cell, with Special Reference to the Genesis of Arrhythmias
  • M. Legato
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Circulation
  • 1 January 1973
TLDR
The overall pattern of cellular organization in working atrial, ventricular, and conducting tissue is reviewed, and possible anatomic bases for current theories of normal and abnormal impulse generation and conduction in the heart are discussed. Expand

  • Biology, Medicine
  • Circulation research
  • 1 February 1979
TLDR
In contrast to the remarkable constancy of quantitative composition of the whole myocardium, myocyte shape and dimensions and the arrangement of intercellular connections vary dramatically over the age period studied. Expand
Principles of gender-specific medicine
TLDR
The Second Edition of Principles of Gender-Specific Medicine focuses on the essentials of gender-specific medicine and the current study of sex and gender differences in human physiology and pathophysiology. Expand
Atrial ultrastructure in patients with fixed intra-atrial block.
TLDR
The ultrastructural changes observed in the right atria of patients with P wave durations of 140 msec or more were much more extensive than in the patients with FIAB and P waveDurations of 120–130 msec, suggesting longer delays in intra-atrial conduction. Expand
Integrating topics of sex and gender into medical curricula—lessons from the international community
In the era of individualized medicine, training future scientists and health-care providers in the principles of sex- and gender-based differences in health and disease is critical in order toExpand
