Heart Diseases (Definition)

Heart disease is a condition in which a person has problems within his or her vascular system and heart, which includes both congenital birth defects and problems acquired later. Examples of heart disease include clogging (atherosclerosis) of the coronary (heart) arteries, heart attacks (obstructions of the arteries), damaged heart valves, heart muscle failure, and viral infections of the heart. Some major causes of heart disease include genetics, smoking, hypertension, high ...Read more

Are cardiovascular disease and ischemic heart disease the same disease?

Are cardiovascular disease and ischemic heart disease the same disease?

Close: The way i define it is that cardiovascular disease refers to the present of plaque (arterial disease) in the arteries of the heart.

Ischemic heart disease is a subset of cardiovascular disease. ...Read more

Is coronary heart disease serious?

Is coronary heart disease serious?

Yes.: Coronary heart disease can be serious. However, with modern understanding it can be managed. Drugs like Aspirin can reduce heart attack. Additionally drugs like Plavix (clopidogrel) have been shown to decrease this further. Statin medications can reduce risk for rupture of the plaque which is the precursor step for a sudden heart attack. Additional medications are also helpful in reducing the impact of cad. ...Read more

Pectoris atherosclerosis congestive heart failure coronary artery disease dilate hypertension myocardial angina pectoris, what are these?

Pectoris atherosclerosis congestive heart failure coronary artery disease dilate hypertension myocardial angina pectoris, what are these?

Cv words: These all refer to cardiovascular particulars. Pectoris = Chest. Atherosclerosis = vascular wall scarring from cholesterol deposit. Coronary artery disease = narrowing and atherosclerosis of heart arteries. Dilate = expand diameter. Hypertension = high blood pressure (within arterial network). Myocardial = heart. Angina pectoris = pain of chest from coronary artery disease, lack of oxygen to heart ...Read more

Is coronary heart disease reversible?

Is coronary heart disease reversible?

Unknwon.: Although there have been suggestive studies that showed coronary plaque regression, most data is focused on plaque stabilization. As long as the plaque is stable and the symptoms controlled, it is not essential that we "revers" atherosclerosis. In the future, cetp modifying drugs may prove to reverse plaque. Only time will tell. ...Read more

How are pulmonary hypertension, congestive heart failure interrelated?

How are pulmonary hypertension, congestive heart failure interrelated?

Closely: Impaired left heart function leads to elevated filling pressure of the left heart and this pressure is transmitted to the right heart creating pulmonary htn, this is the most common cause of pulmonary htn. When the right heart is the primary heart disease it reuslts in the right heart enlarging and pushing into the left heart. This will impair the forward flow of blood by the heart. ...Read more

Which heart diseases leads to valvular heart disease?

Which heart diseases leads to valvular heart disease?

Coronary disease/CAD: CAD can lead to weakened or poorly functioning heart muscle. The mitral valve is anchored to that muscle and will leak if CAD is severe enough. Rheumatic heart disease can lead to valve stenosis due to calcification, but has become less likely in the era of antibiotics. Also, being born with a bicuspid aortic valve (normally 3 cusps) can lead to calcification and narrowing at 50-60 years of age. ...Read more

Is there a relationship between coronary heart disease, angina, heart failure and heart attack?

Continuum: Coronary disease develops from our lifestyle and as we age real blockage develops in some or all coronary vessels. One or more plaques disrupt and obstruct. If adequate collateral pathways exist may just vagus transient angina or pain. Angina is pain without damage. If not adequate flow, or collateral, acute myocardial infarction- heart attack occurs and that is "damage". Heart failure may follow. ...Read more
