Clinical and Interventional Cardiology A clinical cardiologist diagnoses and treats conditions that affect the heart and surrounding blood vessels such as Coronary Artery Disease; Congestive Heart failure Management; Medical Management of Hypertension; Medical Management of Hyperlipidemia; Medical Management of Vascular Diseases such as Carotid Artery Disease; Medical Management of cong...

Cardio Vascular Diseases Cardiovascular diseases are a group of disorders of the heart diagnosis and blood vessels. Cardiovascular disease includes coronary artery diseases (CAD) such as angina and myocardial infarction (commonly known as a heart attack). Other related diseases include stroke, heart failure, hypertension heart disease, rheumatic heart disease, cardiomyopat... Read More
Hypertension High blood pressure is a serious medical disease The pressure of the blood being pumped through the arteries is higher during hypertension It often has no warning signs or symptoms Over time, the constant pressure overload causes accumulating damage that eventually becomes more than circulatory system can handle, often leading to serious health pro...

Cardiomyopathies Cardiomyopathies is a disease of the heart muscle that makes it harder for your heart to pump blood to the rest of your body. Cardiomyopathy can lead to heart failure. The main types of cardiomyopathy include dilated, hypertrophic and restrictive cardiomyopathy. Treatment which might include medications, surgically implanted devices or, in severe ... Read More
Atheroscleros Atherosclerosis is the narrowing of arteries due to plaque buildup on the artery walls. Arteries carry blood from the heart to the rest of the body. They are lined with a thin layer of cells that keeps them smooth and allows blood to flow easily. This is called the endothelium. Atherosclerosis starts when the endothelium becomes damaged, allowing t... Read More
Arrhythmia An arrhythmia is a problem with the rate or rhythm of your heartbeat. It means that your heart beats too quickly, too slowly, or with an irregular pattern. When the heart beats faster than normal, it is called tachycardia. When the heart beats too slowly, it is called bradycardia. The most common type of arrhythmia is atrial fibrillation, which cau...

Heart Stroke A stroke happens when the blood supply to part of your brain is cut off, causing your brain cells to become damaged or die. During a stroke, brain cells in an affected part of your brain are damaged because they don’t get the oxygen and nutrients they need from your blood. This can affect your speech, as well as the way you think and move. Ischem... Read More
Pediatric Cardiology Pediatric Cardiology is for diagnosing congenital heart defects, performing diagnostic procedures such as echocardiograms, cardiac catheterization and electrophysiology studies, and for continual management of the onset of heart disease in infants, children and adolescents. Different types of inflammatory heart disease include myocarditis (the dise... Read More
Obesity And Heart Obesity is a common problem in the United States. Current research suggests that one in three Americans is obese. Obesity and overweight are linked to several factors that increase ones risk for cardiovascular disease (coronary artery disease and stroke): High blood lipids, especially high triglycerides, LDL cholesterol, and total cholesterol and l...

Cardiac Imaging Cardiac imaging is a subspecialty of diagnostic radiology. A cardiac radiologist supervises or performs and then interprets medical images to diagnose diseases of the heart such as heart disease, leaky heart valves and defects in the size and shape of the heart. A cardiac radiologist uses imaging techniques such as X-rays, ultrasound (echocardiogra... Read More
Echo Cardiography Echocardiography or echo, is a painless test that uses sound waves to create moving pictures of your heart. The pictures show the size and shape of your heart. They also show how well your heart’s chambers and valves are working. Echo also can pinpoint areas of heart muscle that aren’t contracting well because of poor blood flow or injury from ... Read More
Cardiac Transplantation A heart transplant removes a damaged or diseased heart and replaces it with a healthy one. The healthy heart comes from a donor who has died. It is the last resort for people with heart failure when all other treatments have failed. The heart failure might have been caused by coronary heart disease, damaged heart valves or heart muscles, congenital... Read More
Cardiac intensive Care Unit Cardiac care units, or CCUs (which some hospitals call acute coronary care units, cardiac intensive care units, or critical coronary care units), are specialized hospital wards dedicated to caring for people with serious or acute heart problems. Originally designed decades ago to care for people with acute heart attacks, CCUs now also routinely pro... Read More
Cardiac Regeneration numerous pharmacological and device therapies have improved adverse cardiac remodeling and mortality in heart failure. However, none are able to regenerate damaged cardiac tissue. Stem cell based therapies using multi potent (adult) stem cells and pluripotent stem cells are new approaches that could potentially achieve the elusive goal of true card... Read More
Cardiac Surgery Cardiovascular surgery which is also known as surgery thoracic surgery is operated on the heart or great vessels by cardiac surgeons and it is the field of medicine involved in surgical treatment of organs inside the thorax. There are five types of cardiac surgery 1) Open heart surgery 2) Modern beating-heart surgery 3) Heart transplant 4) Coronary... Read More
Cardiology-Future Medicine Research advances have contributed to improved outcomes across all specialties, but the rate of advancement in cardiology has been exceptional. Concurrently, the population of patients with cardiac conditions continues to grow and greater public awareness has increased patients” expectations of new drugs and devices. Future Cardiology reflects th... Read More
Trans-Aortic Valve Replacement TAVR is a minimally invasive procedure to replace a narrowed aortic valve that fails to open properly (aortic valve stenosis). Tran’s catheter aortic valve replacement is sometimes called Trans catheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI). TAVR may be an option for people who are considered at intermediate or high risk of complications from surgical... Read More
Nuclear Cardiology Heart disease is the dominant reason of death in the western world. Each year in the U.S.A, above 500,000 men and women die due to coronary artery disease. During the last two decades, major strides have been done in the analysis and treatment of heart disease. Nuclear Cardiology is the main reason for beginning of the diagnosis of heart disease an... Read More
Heart Failure “Heart failure, sometimes known as congestive heart failure, occurs when your heart muscle doesn't pump blood as well as it should. Certain conditions, such as narrowed arteries in your heart (coronary artery disease) or high blood pressure, gradually leave your heart too weak or stiff to fill and pump efficiently. Not all conditions that lead ... Read More
Pediatric and Neonatal Cardiology Cardiac imaging is a central aspect of Cardiology. Cardiac imaging provides information about the inner workings of the heart in detail. This capability serves not only to help diagnose or prevent specific diseases of the heart, but also provides an important research tool for scientists to create the most advanced, efficient tools that will requir...

Cardio-oncology Cardio-oncology is a new term to describe the efforts to prevent or treat patients with cancer who face heart problems caused by cancer treatments. Although many cancer patients also have health conditions related to lung disease, infections or kidney disease, the rise of cardiac diseases in these patients has led to the growth of this new field. C... Read More
