Coronary artery disease in patients with adult congenital heart disease

Recently adult congenital heart disease (ACHD) has been one of the major topics in cardiology. Advance in surgical and catheter-based therapeutic technologies specific for congenital heart disease (CHD) not only reduced mortality but also improved quality of life in children as well as young adults, and thus, consequently elderly patients, who had CHD or post-operative CHD, increased. Thus, the ACHD population is growing with a progressive increase in elderly population. Since coronary artery disease (CAD) increases with age, comorbid CAD is an important issue that cannot overlooked in patients with ACHD.

(Natural News) Is there really “good” cholesterol and “bad” cholesterol? The medical community has branded low density lipoprotein, or LDL, cholesterol “bad” because high levels are linked to plaque buildup in the arteries, heart disease, and risk of ischemic stroke. However, a new study from Penn State University argues that LDL cholesterol is necessary in...

Abstract Heart disease (especially myocardial infarction (MI)) and cancer are major causes of death. Recently, aptasensors with the applying of different nanostructures have been able to provide new windows for the early and inexpensive detection of these deadly diseases. Early, inexpensive, and accurate diagnosis by portable devices, especially aptasensors can increase the likelihood of survival as well as significantly reduce the cost of treatment. In this review, recent studies based on the designed aptasensors for the diagnosis of these diseases were collected, ordered, and reviewed. The biomarkers for the dia...

AbstractCranial ultrasound on neonatal intensive care units is generally performed by intensive care physicians, but radiologists often provide this crucial bedside test to children on specialist paediatric cardiac intensive care units. On a paediatric cardiac intensive care unit, complex congenital cardiac conditions are commonly encountered in both pre- and postoperative scenarios, often with the use of extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO), which both increases the risks of a number of neurologic complications and results in significant changes in vascular physiology. The aim of this pictorial essay is to discuss c...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewCongenital heart disease (CHD), the most common of birth defects, can be serious enough to require a lifetime of medical care including multiple surgeries or other interventions.Recent FindingsAdvances in ultrasound technology and a better understanding of the progression of CHDs have made it possible to intervenein utero. This early-stage intervention allows the still plastic cardiovascular system to return to a more normal trajectory thus sparing the newborn from negative consequences to morbidity and mortality.SummaryFetal cardiac intervention (FCI) has been successful altering the course of rig...
