Ventricular tachyarrhythmias are uncommon. Intake of trans fatty acids and risk of coronary heart disease among women. This association can be used clinically: lowering a patient’s serum cholesterol level is rewarded by a two-for-one improvement in risk.

Soluble ST2 in ambulatory patients with heart failure: Association with functional capacity and long-term outcomes Hurst's the Heart Internet Edition. When blood flow through the coronary arteries is blocked by plaques or blood clots, part of the heart muscle loses its source of oxygen and dies. The worse the damage, the lower the chances of survival. In Western countries, artery blockages are common, even in asymptomatic young adults. A review of post-mortem examinations of American soldiers killed in the Korean War at an average age of just 23 years, showed that artery blockages were already present in 77 percent of the men Taigman's Advanced Cardiology (In Plain English). The listings in this section describe cardiovascular impairments based on symptoms, signs, laboratory findings, response to a regimen of prescribed treatment, and functional limitations. 3 Advances in Cardiovascular Pharmacology: A Society of Cardiovascular Anesthesiologists Monograph online. The study was designed to investigate the relative effects of saturated fat and dietary cholesterol in determining serum cholesterol levels. Coconuts were practically a staple in the diets, with up to 60% of their caloric intake coming from the saturated fat of coconut oil. The study found very healthy people who were relatively free from the modern diseases of western cultures, including obesity and heart disease Heart Failure in Congenital Heart Disease: From Fetus to Adult. Cough and wheeze are more likely to be of pulmonary etiology, but they can occur with cardiovascular malformations. As an example, a tight vascular ring can compress the trachea, leading to wheezing, coughing, or stridor [ 56,57 ] Developmental Cardiology: Morphogenesis and Function. Understanding symptoms of acute coronary syndrome (ACS) is critical to optimizing treatment and outcomes. An international study of 26,755 patients (29% women) with ACS found that “chest pain was the most common symptom for both men (94%) and women (92%)” (Dey et al., 2009). However, statistically significant sex differences were observed for nausea and jaw pain, both of which are more common in women Breakdown in Human Adaptation to 'Stress': Towards a multidisciplinary approach, Volume I-II.

Cardiac allograft vasculopathy is the leading cause of late morbidity and mortality in heart transplant patients. Although it is a complex multifactorial process arising from immune and non-immune pathogenic mechanisms, the approach to cardiac allograft vasculopathy has been modification of underlying traditional risk factors and optimization of immune suppression Upon A Trailing Edge: Risk, the Heart and the Air Pilot. Aortic stenosis is the most common type of heart valve disease seen in Europe. The symptoms of heart valve disease may depend on which of your valves is affected and how severely. You may not experience any symptoms, or your symptoms may come on so gradually you don’t really notice them Biopacemaking (Series in Biomedical Engineering). An editorialist commented that "risk factor proliferation puts patients and clinicians at risk for confusion" (Berkwits and Guallar, 2007). A report from the Framingham Offspring Study, a large, population-based, cohort study, found that apo A-1 ratio has little clinical utility in predicting incident coronary heart disease, and that measuring total cholesterol and HDL appears to suffice to determine heart disease risk (Ingelsson et al, 2007) Coronary Artery Diseases: Diagnostic and Therapeutic Imaging Approaches.

AF is often unrecognized and untreated in patients admitted with acute ischaemic stroke. Recommendations for antithrombotic therapy should be based on the presence (or absence) of risk factors for stroke and thrombo-embolism, and we refer further to the recent guidelines of the Task Force for the Management of Atrial Fibrillation of the European Society of Cardiology. 516, 517 In patients with ACS, dual antiplatelet therapy with a P2Y12 inhibitor plus aspirin is superior to clopidogrel plus aspirin Critical Care Medicine: The Essentials. Vitamin C is essential for the production of collagen and therefore protects the integrity of the artery walls. Vitamin C is used up very quickly during periods of stress. Researcher Kilmer McCully has found a positive relationship between deficiencies in folic acid, B6 and B12 and severity of hardening or stiffness of the arteries, as well as the buildup of pathogenic plaque.11 Vitamin B6 and vitamin B12 are found almost exclusively in animal products—the foods that proponents of the lipid hypothesis advise us to avoid Contemporary Diagnosis and Management of Cardiac Arrhythmias.

Despite the enormous burden of CVD, many patients remain undiagnosed and untreated. Even among patients with established disease, there are substantial treatment gaps; among patients receiving lipid-modifying therapy, 43% do not achieve total cholesterol targets (<4.5 mmol/L, 175 mg/dL) in Europe, 5 whereas 64% fail to reach LDL cholesterol targets in the USA. 539 There is also the issue of undermanagement and little improvement over time in other CVD risk factors such as smoking, high BP, and obesity. 540 The performance of primary prevention of CVD is even worse, at least partly because of additional difficulties in predicting those at greater risk who may benefit from treatment interventions Stressechocardiography.

If the blockage is complete, it can cause a heart attack (Myocardial Infarction or MI). If the blockage occurs in one of the arteries near the brain, a stroke can occur. If a blockage occurs in a leg artery, it causes Peripheral Vascular Disease (PVD) and can cause pain while walking called intermittent claudication.

When fatty materials such as cholesterol form deposits on the walls of the vessels (known as plaque), furring up the artery and reducing the space for blood to flow, this is described as arteriosclerosis or atherosclerosis. If the plaque ruptures the artery walls, blood cells (called platelets) try to repair the damage, but this will cause a clot to form. Over time, the walls of the blood vessels lose their elasticity Myocardial Ischemia and Arrhythmia: Under the auspices of the Society of Cooperation in Medicine and Science (SCMS), Freiburg, Germany. The guidelines also noted their higher cost of test compared with classical biological risk factors (e.g. blood glucose and lipids).
