In the lexicon of the cell biologist, reference to a radical is quite specific. It is an atom or molecule with at least 1 unpaired electron, capable of easy, enzyme free modification of neighboring molecular bonds. This radical and its contribution to vascular disease are the focus of discussion.(click here to read)

We reviewed recent clinical data on the management of unstable angina and non-STsegment elevation myocardial infarction. We concentrated on the use of new therapies, particularly in combination with both older agents and other new methods, in order to
present health care providers with an overview of available treatment options.(click here to read).

Catecholamine Cardiac Toxicity
Animal models of catecholamine exposure and in Vitro experimentation have established that cathecholamines in high concentration may produce a toxic effect upon myocytes.(click here to read)
We sought to determine if the occurrence of postoperative atrial fibrillation (AF) affects early or late mortality following coronary artery bypass surgery (CABG) (click here to read more).
Atrial Fibrillation After Surgery
Cardiac Sarcoidosis
We report the case of a patient with sarcoidosis and ventricular tachycardia in whom cardiac magnetic resonance imaging provided supportive evidence of cardiac involvement by delineating regions of myocardial inflammation and fibrosis inconsistent with ischemic injury (click here to read more).
Heart Failure 2016
Read a pamphlet by Dr. Wilson that is about heart failure (click here to read more).
Stents or Surgery
Myocardial hibemation is reversible contractile dysfunction of cardiac myocytes caused
by chronic ischemia. Animal studies and observations in human beings suggest that the
term hibernation is a misnomer Repetitive ischemic insult that does not produce necrosis
results in functional and histologic tissue deterioration, which culminates in myocyte
apoptosis (click here to read more).
Heart Failure Summary
What is Heart Failure?
Heart failure refers to the inability of the heart to perform its normal
function under normal or expected
conditions. About 10% of americans will experience heart failure.

Not every lesion requires revascularization. Angioplasty is not without risk and frequently fails within the first 6 months after the procedure. In populations whose survival is unlikely to be affected by any revascularization procedure, PTCA compares favorably to coronary bypass surgery, albeit with a substantially greater need for more procedures.(click here to read more).
