Causes of Elevated Troponin in Patients with Normal Coronary Angiography

Cardiac troponin T (cTnT) in patients with normal coronary angiography was attributed to diverse etiologies, including hypertensive crisis, Takotsubo syndrome, severe aortic stenosis, atrial fibrillation (AF), chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) exacerbation, advanced heart failure, hypertensive cardiomyopathy, acute pulmonary embolism, malignant disease progression, and cardiogenic shock.

Detection of Hypertension among Cardiac Diseases Inpatients at Kirkuk City Hospitals كوكرك ةنيدم تايفشتسم يف نيدقارلا بلقلا يضرم ىدل مدلا طغض عافترا نع فشكلا

The results of this study revealed that the mean age and standard division of study sample is (63.1 11.3), the highest percentage 52(35.1%) of age factor for heart disease patients are reported at (70-79yrs.) group .

Pupils’ Knowledge Level about the Contraindicationsof Cardiovascular Diseases of the HeartlikeDilated Cardiomyopathy (DCM), Hypertensive Heart Disease (HHD) and Pulmonary Heart Disease (PHD) as Health Education Strategy in Preventive Health

High school pupils’ low level of knowledge about the contraindications of cardiovascular diseases of the heart as health education strategy in preventive health case d at University Secondary School is pointed out.

Special Issue: Hypertensive Heart Disease—From Pathophysiology to Therapeutical Challenges

This study highlights the need to understand more fully the mechanism behind the high blood pressure in women and its role in the development and progression of cardiovascular disease.

Undernutrition was a prevalent clinical problem among older adult patients with heart failure in a hospital setting in Northwest Ethiopia

Undernutrition was a significant clinical problem in older patients with heart failure and Nutritional interventions should be prioritized for patients with chronic and severe heart failure.



Classification of hypertensive cardiomyopathy.

A clinical pathophysiological classification of hypertensive cardiomyopathy has been established on the basis of the degree to which the heart is affected by chronic, systemic arterial hypertension:

Hypertensive heart disease. A complex syndrome or a hypertensive 'cardiomyopathy'?

The purpose of this review is to describe the various mechanisms whereby the heart is abnormal in hypertension and to discuss the possibility of a discrete entity called hypertensive cardiomyopathy.

Early recognition and treatment of hypertensive heart disease

There is an important need for physicians to recognize hypertensive heart disease, understand its pathophysiology, and become fluent in treatment options available, and this review of recent basic science and clinical data serves to accomplish this task.

Hypertensive Risk Assessment:
Cardiovascular Risk Factors and Hypertension

The report emphasizes that systolic blood pressure is more important than diastolicBlood pressure, citing an incremental cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk extending down to what was previously regarded as the normal range, defining a “prehypertensive” blood pressure category.

Hypertension, left ventricular hypertrophy, and sudden death

This review explores the possible mechanisms behind left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH), a form of end-organ damage in hypertension, and recent studies are addressing whether the latter translates into a prognostic benefit.

Mechanisms of Disease: pathologic structural remodeling is more than adaptive hypertrophy in hypertensive heart disease

The clinical relevance of ventricular fibrosis is that it might contribute to the increased cardiac risk of patients with hypertensive heart disease and the therapeutic strategies aimed to promote its reduction are discussed.

Atrial Fibrillation in Hypertension: Predictors and Outcome

It is indicated that in hypertensive subjects with sinus rhythm and no other major predisposing conditions, risk of atrial fibrillation increases with age and left ventricular mass.

Left ventricular hypertrophy as a predictor of cardiovascular risk

High-quality studies are needed to define how LVH predicts cardiovascular risk, which agents are most effective at eliciting LVH regression and how such reversal can affect cardiovascular outcome.
