Clinical Cardiology and Cardiovascular Medicine



About Journal

The heart is a muscular organ of vertebrates, which pumps blood through the blood vessels of the circulatory system. Blood provides the body with oxygen and nutrients, as well as assists in the removal of metabolic wastes. In humans, the heart is located between the lungs, in the middle compartment of the chest. The branch of medicine that deals with the heart, its diseases, and their treatment is termed as cardiology.

 Core Fields Covered

Pediatric cardiology:

Pediatric Cardiology deals with the study of heart disease which usually occurs in infants, children, and adolescents. This study also includes embryology and anatomy, physiology and pharmacology, pathology, genetics, radiology, investigative cardiology, biochemistry, electrophysiology, clinical aspects and echocardiography, and cardiac surgery. Edelweiss Publications Inc, USA welcomes original manuscripts related to all Pediatric Cardiology related aspects which will be published in Clinical Cardiology and Cardiovascular Medicine journal.

Cardiogeriatrics:

Cardiogeriatrics also known as geriatric cardiology is the branch of science which deals with cardiology and geriatric medicine and cardiovascular disorders in elderly people.

Cardiac disorders such as coronary heart disease includes myocardial infarction, cardiomyopathy, arrhythmias, heart failure and others are common and these are a major cause of mortality in elderly people. Vascular disorders such as atherosclerosis and peripheral arterial disease cause significant morbidity and mortality in aged people. The journal of Clinical Cardiology and Cardiovascular Medicine running by Edelweiss publications Inc accepts all the research work, commentaries, review articles, many more articles related to Cardiogeriatrics.

Electrocardiography:

Electrocardiographyis the process in which electrical activity of the heart is recorded by using electrodes placed on the skin over a period of time. These electrodes detect the tiny electrical changes on the skin that arise from the heart muscle s electro physiologic pattern of depolarizing and repolarizing during each heartbeat. It is very commonly performed in order to detect any cardiac problems. Clinical Cardiology and Cardiovascular Medicine journal welcomes new research and techniques related to Electrocardiography. At edelweiss Publications we promote your articles worldwide.

 Vectorcardiography:

Vectorcardiography which is commonly abbreviated as VCG is a special method of recording magnitude and direction of the electrical forces that are generated by the heart by means of a continuous series of vectors that form curving lines around a central point. Clinical Cardiology & Cardiovascular Medicine (CCCM) provides a open access platform to put forth the ongoing research, reviews on Vectorcardiography globally.

Heart arrhythmia:

Heart arrhythmia is a group of conditions in which the heartbeat is either in irregular manner, too fast, or too slow. A heart rate that is too fast almost above 100 beats per minute in adults is termed as tachycardia and a heart rate that is too slow below 60 beats per minute is termed as bradycardia. Many types of arrhythmia conditions have no symptoms. When symptoms are present these may include palpitations or feeling a pause between heartbeats. In more serious cases there may be chest pain lightheadedness, passing out, or shortness of breath. While most types of arrhythmia are not serious, some predispose a person to complications such as stroke or heart failure. Others may result in cardiac arrest. Editorial board members of Clinical Cardiology and Cardiovascular Medicine ensures a rapid peer review process helping Edelweiss Publications to run it successfully.

Coronary artery disease:

This is also known as Ischemic Heart Disease (IHD) which refers to a group of diseases which includes unstable angina, stable angina, sometimes it may lead to myocardial infarction, and sudden cardiac death. It is within the group of cardiovascular diseases of which IHD is the most common type. A common symptom is chest pain or discomfort which may travel into the shoulder, arm, back, neck, or jaw. Occasionally it may feel like heartburn. Usually symptoms occur with exercise or emotional stress which may last less than a few minutes, and will be improve with rest. Shortness of breath may also occur and sometimes no symptoms are present. In many cases, heart attack is the first sign. This may also include other complications include heart failure or an abnormal heartbeat. The journal of Clinical Cardiology and Cardiovascular Medicine publish case reports and other research related to any Coronary artery disease. Journal belongs to Edelweiss publications Inc, it is running successfully since two years.

 Cardiac pacing:

The action potential caused to the electrical impulses in the heart muscle leads to contraction of cardiac muscle. Heart rate directly related to the rate of the impulse. Pace makers are the cells which creates the rhythmic impulses, which causes the blood pumping, also controlling the heart rate. Pace makers in the heart make up the cardiac pacemaker, also known as natural pacemaker. Edelweiss Publications accepts all the articles, reviews, commentaries, case reports related to cardiac pacing to publish in journal of Clinical Cardiology and Cardiovascular medicine.

Cardiac sarcoidosis:

Sarcoidosis is a disease which involves abnormal collections of inflammatory cells that form lumps known as granulomas.The disease usually begins in the lungs, skin, or lymph nodes. Less commonly affected are the, liver, heart, eyes and brain. Any organ, however, can be affected. If the disease begins in the heart and cardiovascular cells that is termed as Cardiac Sarcoidosis. The signs and symptoms depend on the organ involved. More often there are no, or only mild, symptoms.

Symptoms and Signs related to cardiac sarcoidosis may include:

  • Rapid or fluttering heart beat (palpitations)
  • Fainting (syncope)
  • Irregular heartbeats (arrhythmias)
  • Swelling caused by excess fluid (edema)
  • Chest pain
  • Fatigue
  • Shortness of breath (dyspnea)

Edelweiss publications maintaining the journal of Clinical Cardiology and Cardiovascular Medicine accepts all the original manuscripts related to Cardiac Sarcoidosis.

 Cardiac fibrosis:

Cardiac fibrosis refers to an abnormal thickening of the heart valves due to inappropriate proliferation of cardiac fibroblasts which is more commonly refers to the excess deposition of extracellular matrix in the cardiac muscle. Fibrotic cardiac muscle is stiffer and less compliant and which may see in the progression to heart failure. Clinical Cardiology and Cardiovascular Medicine is the Journal maintained by Edelweiss publications, which ensures of Rapid Peer review with the help of its Editorial Board.

 Cardiac neurosis:

Cardiac neurosis is one of the common issues related to performance of the human heart that does not necessarily caused by actual heart diseases. According to studies, about 60% of the patients who consults for a cardiac condition are actually suffering from an exaggerated and unnecessary anxiety feelings and not quite based from verifiable evidence. Cardiac neurosis symptoms include fatigue, shortness of breath, rapid heartbeat, dizziness, and some others. Research regarding Cardiac neurosis is accepted by Edelweiss publications and publish them in journal of Clinical Cardiology and Cardiovascular Medicine

Cardiac rehabilitation:

Cardiac rehabilitation which can be referring to as cardiac rehab is a customized outpatient program of exercise and education. Cardiac rehabilitation is designed to help you to improve your health and help you to recover from a heart attack, other forms of heart disease or surgery to treat heart disease.

Manuscripts related to Cardiac rehabilitation are welcomed to publish in Clinical Cardiology and Cardiovascular Medicine.

·         New Trend of Cardiac Myxoma - Case Series and Systematic Review

Author(s): Junhong Gui, Aadil Maqsood, Saroj Khadka, Kenneth Rodriguez, George Everett

Abstract

Although rare, cardiac myxomas are the most common primary cardiac tumor with an incidence of 0.5 per million per year. Previous case series have reported on the epidemiology, clinical characteristics, diagnostic technologies and therapeutic outcomes that were evident at the time of publication. Because of the evolution of cardiac diagnostic (particularly imaging) and therapeutic options, we theorized that cardiac myxomas would be found at an earlier stage and this would result in improved therapeutic outcomes. Accordingly, a new case series (Current Group) is being reported and compared to historical case series that were published after widespread availability of echocardiography (after 1985). The case series were further divided into those published before (group 3), after (group 1) or overlapping (group 2) the proliferation of chest and cardiac imaging technologies that occurred in the mid-1990s. All 28 patients with pathologically proven cardiac myxoma at Florida Hospital Orlando from April 2007 to August 2013 (the Current Group) were studied. For comparative review, PubMed was searched for case series of cardiac myxoma from January 1, 1985 to December 31, 2013, and studies that met inclusion criteria were divided into three groups: Group 1: cases collected exclusively after 1995 (10 articles); Group 3: cases exclusively before 1995 (31 articles); and Group 2: those not belonging to group 1 or 3 (23 articles). The gender (2:1 female predominance), age and myxoma location (85% left atrium) have not changed significantly over time. However, the tumor size has declined from 5.3 cm to 3.3 cm. Asymptomatic cases (found unexpectedly) have increased to 21% of the Current Group while fever, heart failure and embolism have declined over time. Echocardiography has become the dominant diagnostic technology, followed by CT. Catheter based diagnostic imaging has declined substantially. Surgical mortality and tumor recurrence have remained low but unchanged. In summary, cardiac myxoma has trended to smaller, more frequently asymptomatic tumors found mostly by echocardiography or CT, but this has not altered surgical mortality or recurrence.

·         The Impact of Cytochrome P450 2C19 Polymorphism on Cardiovascular Events in Indonesian Patients with Coronary Artery Disease

Author(s): Muzakkir Amir, Mirnawati Mappiare, Paskalis Indra

Abstract

The polymorphism of cytochrome P450 2C19 (CYP2C19) has been documented as the determinant variability in the antiplatelet effect of clopidogrel. The relation between CYP2C19 polymorphism and the antiplatelet efficacy of clopidogrel in Indonesian patients with Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) is unknown. To address this issue, we examined the distribution of CYP2C19 genotypes and platelet aggregation, and assessed the impact of CYP2C19 polymorphism on response to clopidogrel and Cardiovascular events.

·         Six-Minute Walk Test in Pediatric Cardiac Patients

Author(s): Mohammed Sayed Elyan, Salah El-din Amry Ahmed, Hekma Saad Farghaly

Abstract

The 6MWT is a self-paced walking test generally used toassess the functional capacity in people with chronic conditions the main outcome is the distance that a person can walk in 6 minutes. The 6 MWT is originally developed to measure the submaximal level of functional capacity in adult patients with moderate to severe heart or lung diseases and has been extensively used in other patient populations.

Because the test reflects an exercise level close to that of daily life activities, it is easy to administer, is well tolerated by patients, and is increasingly being used as a functional outcome measure for people with chronic conditions, including pediatric populations

·         Electrocardiogram Interpretation: An Exploration of Knowledge and Practice among Secondary Care Hospitals Emergency Physicians

Author(s): Aamir Hussain

Abstract

An Electrocardiogram (ECG) is a simple, easy, low cost and routine diagnostic tool. Nearly all private secondary hospitals of Pakistan have this facility. It is non-invasive, cardiac evaluation test. It has unsophisticated handling procedure. It is very important for duty doctors in their busy clinical practice to have good command on ECG interpretation. Likewise it is prime responsibility of doctors to timely order the ECG when warranted. A good physician has to interpret ECG precisely for timely manage and refer the cardiac related patients to tertiary care.
