We can consider Jugular veins of the neck as a naturally present right heart catheter. It faithfully reflects the live pressure and waveform data  from right atrium and ventricle . Can JVP tell us anything about left heart pressures? Is there any relationship between JVP and PCWP or LVEDP ? If you tell JVP reflects LV filling pressure in any graduate medical exams, you will be admonished. However in DM or post-doctoral exam, if you say there is no link between the two, you are likely to be chided.(It is unfortunate the answers vary depending upon the level of training , which I feel is not academically correct ) Thoug...

In patients with schizophrenia, cardiovascular disease accounts for nearly 50% of deaths and decreased life expectancy, and the incidence of sudden cardiac death is about four times higher than in the background population. While the majority of sudden deaths are due to ischaemic heart disease and its recognised risk factors, about 10% of sudden deaths are unexplained and are thought to be due to cardiac arrhythmias. This review discusses various factors that might contribute to this increased mortality, such as the effect of antipsychotic drugs on potassium and sodium channel function, increased incidence of Brugada patte...

The development of percutaneous structural interventions in patients with acquired heart disease is happening at an exponential rate, and some of this technology is being used to treat patients with congenital heart disease. This review describes the pathophysiology of valvular abnormalities specific to congenital heart disease and discusses the application of structural procedures in this population. Although the overall experience has been encouraging, especially in high-risk patients, this article will highlight the reasons that a cautious approach to adoption of this technology is necessary in these patients.

ConclusionThis paper presents a comprehensive synthesis of estimates of chronically ill patients ’ WTP for medical treatment and identifies the key factors determining WTP through a meta-regression analysis. The main finding is that economic and political institutions, cultural traits, the types of disease, socio-economic characteristics, and valuation methods all influence WTP estimates.

Background The number of coronary heart disease (CHD) patients treated with percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) has increased. The illness perception (IP) of PCI recipients needs to be evaluated. Yet, little is known whether patients' IP predicts perceived learning needs among patients treated with PCI. Objective The aim of this study was to assess patients' IP and to examine its influence on perceived learning needs post PCI. Methods A cross-sectional design was used. A convenience sample of 208 patients who had undergone first-time PCI participated in the study. Data were collected before patients were disch...

Objective: The Women's Health Initiative (WHI) assessed oral conjugated equine estrogens (CEE) taken with or without medroxyprogesterone acetate (MPA) for prevention of chronic disease in postmenopausal women aged 50-79 years. Methods: Women with an intact uterus (nā€Š=ā€Š16,608) were randomized to CEE+ MPA therapy or placebo for a median of 5.6 years; women with hysterectomy (nā€Š=ā€Š10,739) were randomized to CEE-alone therapy or placebo for a median of 7.2 years. Both cohorts have been followed for 18 years. Results: In the overall study population (mean age, 63 y), neither estrogen-progestin therapy (EPT) nor e...
