Cardiology - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Cardiology (from Greek καρδίᾱ kardiā, "heart" and -λογία -logia, "study") is a branch of medicine dealing with disorders of the heart. The field includes medical diagnosis and treatment of congenital heart defects, coronary artery disease, heart failure, valvular heart disease and electrophysiology. Physicians who specialize in this field of medicine are called cardiologists, a specialty of internal medicine. Pediatric cardiologists are pediatricians who specialize in cardiology. Physicians who specialize in cardiac surgery are called cardiothoracic surgeons or cardiac surgeons, a specialty of general surgery.

Peripheral Vascular Disease (PVD)

Peripheral vascular disease (PVD) is due to atherosclerosis of arteries in the limbs. The level of arterial occlusion present is proportional to the symptoms. The pathogenesis and risk factors are the same as for coronary artery disease (CAD), and include: Hypertension Dyslipidaemia High LDL and low LDL levels Diabetes Obesity FH of arterial disease Smoking Age Male gender   Epidemiology

Shorter adult height is linked to raised risk of coronary artery disease, study shows

Genetically determined shorter adult height is associated with significantly increased risk of coronary artery disease, shows a large UK study that suggests the finding is due to a link between shorter height and adverse lipid profile.

DNA shows why being short can be bad for your heart

When Randy Newman sang his tongue-in-cheek tune about short people, he called attention to their “little hands, little eyes” and their “little baby legs.” Nowhere does his 1978 hit mention that short people also have an increased risk of coronary artery disease. But scientists have established...

Assessment of chest pain in a low risk patient: is the exercise tolerance test obsolete?

The coronary artery calcium score has high sensitivity for detecting coronary stenosis—so a negative result makes significant coronary stenosis unlikely—but low specificity, and 60% of those without coronary artery disease will also have a positive result

Cognitive-behavioural treatments for non-cardiac chest pain | Cochrane

Recurrent chest pain in the absence of coronary artery disease is a common, difficult to treat problem that sometimes leads to excess use of medical care. A substantial number of patients are not reassured by negative medical assessment, reporting persistent pain and limitations. Psychological factors appear to be of importance for treatment. This Cochrane review included all studies of psychotherapy for non-cardiac chest pain. Seventeen trials met the inclusion criteria, and included a total of 1006 participants. The review found that cognitive-behavioural treatments are probably effective (in terms of reduced chest pain frequency) in the short term, for the treatment of non-cardiac related chest pain. No adverse effects of the psychotherapy were found. Hypnotherapy is also a possible alternative. A limitation of this review is the high variability of the studies included, reflected in a wide range of outcome measures, although there was an overall fairly low risk of bias.
