Dr M. Jacobs (Baltimore, Md). The Norwood procedure, the most commonly performed open operation in the neonatal age group, was developed approximately 40 years ago by Dr William Norwood. This operation has probably been the subject of as many or more investigations or reports than any other operation for congenital heart disease, yet Dr Mascio and colleagues stated accurately in their article that the principles of the Norwood operation remain esse ntially the same today as when Norwood first conceived it.
Conclusion: This study provides some novel information on PH in Indian population. There is, however, a definite need to conduct a large-scale study involving urban as well as rural population to reconfirm the above mentioned new observations concluded in our study.

Functional analysis of the congenital heart disease‑associated GATA4 H436Y mutation in vitro. Mol Med Rep. 2019 Jul 09;: Authors: Fang T, Zhu Y, Xu A, Zhang Y, Wu Q, Huang G, Sheng W, Chen M Abstract Congenital heart disease (CHD) is the most common type of developmental defect, with high rates of morbidity in infants. The transcription factor GATA‑binding factor 4 (GATA4) has been reported to serve a critical role in embryogenesis and cardiac development. Our previous study reported a heterozygous GATA4 c.1306C>T (p.H436Y) mutation in four Chinese infants with congenital heart defects...
In conclusion, e-noise is a potential danger in our world, and further studies are needed of its effects on mechanisms of aging, disease, and human health.
Authors: Luo Y, Zheng M, Zhang Y, He S, Zhang L, Sun H, Liu X, Tan T, Zhu H, He J Abstract Patients with familial hypercholesterolemia usually present with high levels of serum low-density lipoprotein, xanthomas and early coronary artery disease. A 13 years old female patient was admitted to Children's Hospital of Chongqing Medical University presenting symptoms of heart failure. Laboratory tests showed that her cholesterol and low-density lipid levels were extremely high. Electrocardiogram test revealed that she had sinus tachycardia, QT lengthening and ST-T change. Multiple cardiac function abnormalities were dia...
New research in mouse cells sheds light on some mechanisms that help explain how dihomo-gamma-linolenic acid, an omega-6, prevents atherosclerosis.
Introduction: Alcohol intake has a monotonic detrimental role for several diseases (in particular some cancers), but is associated with reduced risk of ischemic heart disease when consumed in moderation. The association of moderate alcohol intake with total mortality remains controversial.
Authors: Bai MF, Wang X Abstract In the context of global aging, cardiovascular disease has become the number one cause of death among Chinese women. Lifestyle factors play an important role in the development of coronary heart disease, and as awareness of the pathophysiology of coronary atherosclerosis has increased, lifestyle interventions play an important role in reducing the risk of coronary heart disease. However, there is a lack of research on the factors affecting coronary heart disease in female populations. Strengthening health education for women with coronary heart disease, reducing the burden of d...

This study indicated that age, heart disease, motor distur bance of limb, ataxia, early neurological deterioration, diameter of infarction, size of non-responsible vessels, and large-artery atherosclerosis can be used to assess the prognosis of patients with minor ischemic stroke.
