The Journal of Cardiovascular Diseases & Diagnosis volume no. 4, issue no. 4 of the journal has published case reports, research articles and short communications emphasizing the recent research outcomes related to vascular calcification, hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy, myocardial infarction, tachycardia in pediatric patients, ventricular arrhythmias, rheumatic heart disease, atrial fibrillation, valve replacement, coronary artery disease, heart failure, stroke and echocardiography. 


Algorithms of Relationships between Left Ventricle Dysfunction and Atrial Fibrillation
The hypothesis that atrial fibrillation is a protective physiological mechanism, based on the termination of atrial mechanical systole, reduces the enddiastolic pressure in the left ventricle by excluding the component of systolic left atrial pressure from the total enddiASTolic pressure and thus reduces the likelihood for development of pulmonary congestion.

How Can we Improve Non-Surgical Septal Reduction for Hypertrophic Obstructive Cardiomyopathy?
It is proposed that selectively treating the hypertrophied septum of HCM patients with injection of the anthracycline doxorubicin will lead to superior outcomes compared to ASA. Expand
Gla-rich Protein (GRP): A New Player In The Burden Of Vascular Calcification
Vascular calcification is a life-threatening complication of cardiovascular disease and an independent risk factor for morbidity and mortality and the vitamin K-dependent protein, Gla-rich protein, was proposed to have an important role in its inhibition. Expand
All-cause Mortality of High-normal Random Blood Glucose using Basic Demographics
A high normal random glucose level with limited covariates may prognosticate a greater risk of allcause morbidity and mortality compared to low normal glucose levels, which may help to provide estimates of risk in low and middle-income countries. Expand
Comparison of Neointimal Tissue Characteristics Between Bare-metal and Second-generation Drug-eluting Stents Nine Months after Implantation in Patients with ST-segment Elevation Myocardial Infarction
Neointimal tissue characteristics were different among BMS and second-generation DES at nine months after implantation into patients with STEMI, which might be related to the differences of future cardiac events. Expand
Does Anesthesia Induction during Electrophysiologic Studies Induce Tachycardia in Pediatric Patients
Sinus Tachycardia occurred in 10% of pediatric electrophysiology cases performed under general anesthesia, and was seen more frequently when IH agents were used compared to IV. Expand
