Role of novel cardiac biomarkers for the diagnosis, risk stratifi cation, and prognostication among patients with heart failure

Background: Current guidelines for diagnosis and management of heart failure (HF) rely on clinical findings and natriuretic peptide values, but evidence suggests that recently identified cardiac biomarkers may aid in early detection of HF and improve risk stratification. The a...

Late discover of a traumatic cardiac injury: Case report

Blunt chest trauma leads to a wide range of lesions, relatively minor parietal injuries to

P wave dispersion in patients with premenstrual dysphoric disorder

Background: Growing evidence has revealed that fear and anxiety related situations could affect cardiac parameters. P wave dispersion (Pd) is an important index. In the present study, we aimed to evaluate Pd values in patients with premenstrual dysphoric disorder.

Severe Infantile Coarctation and Mid Aortic Stenosis in Williams Syndrome

We report a challenging patient with Williams syndrome and severe coarctation of the aorta. As in a few similar cases reported, several surgical and catheter interventions for recoarctation, intrastent intimal proliferation and stenosis of the left sub-clavian artery were required. Aortic patc...

C-reactive protein is associated with ventricular repolarization dispersion among patients with metabolic syndrome

Background: An increasing body of evidence indicates that inflammatory activation profoundly impacts the electrophysiological properties of cardiomyocytes. A marker of systemic inflammation such as C-reactive
protein(CRP), is associated with all parameters of the Mtabo...
