Nutrition and Cardiometabolic Health

 Cardiovascular, Nutrition  Comments Off on Nutrition and Cardiometabolic Health
Mar 082018
 

Nutrition plays a key role in prevention of cardiovascular disease, the leading cause of death worldwide. Diet influences a broad spectrum of cardiometabolic risk factors, notably a cluster including excess adiposity, dyslipidemia, impaired glucose metabolism and high blood pressure. In the face of the rapidly increasing incidence of obesity and diabetes, maintaining cardiometabolic health through adoption of a healthy lifestyle is a top public health priority.

In this book, Nutrition and Cardiometabolic Health, international experts present state-of-the-art scholarly reviews of dietary and lifestyle effects on metabolic systems associated with cardiovascular health and disease. It covers a broad range of topics including biological and behavioral processes regulating food intake; lifestyle and surgical approaches to weight loss; nutritional considerations for optimal cardiometabolic health across the lifespan; the relationship of macronutrients, whole foods and dietary patterns to diabetes and cardiovascular disease; and diet as a modulator of gene expression, epigenetics and the gut microbiome and the relationship of these traits to disorders of metabolism. This book provides its readers with an authoritative view of the present state of knowledge of dietary effects on cardiometabolic health and will be of interest to nutrition and healthcare professionals alike.

Takotsubo Cardiomyopathy

 Cardiovascular  Comments Off on Takotsubo Cardiomyopathy
Mar 072018
 

Takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TC) is a relatively new pathological concept in cardiovascular disease, originally described in the Japanese population at the beginning of the 1990s. It is a left ventricular dysfunction that resembles acute myocardial infarction. This book examines risk factors, discusses management options, and reviews long-term outlooks of TC. Chapter One and Chapter Two provide an overview of the pathogenesis, history, risk factors, management, and prognosis of TC. Chapter Three presents current knowledge on personality traits factors in TC. Chapter Four focuses on the types of arrhythmias that occur in patients with this syndrome. Chapter Five studies biomarkers in TC. Chapter Six and Chapter Seven discuss the roles of multimodal imaging in TC. Chapter Eight examines possible electrocardiogram (ECG) clues that can make a TC diagnosis more likely, and describes common and uncommon ECG features in TC, along with their temporal modifications. Chapter Nine reviews the connection of TC and dental procedures. In the last chapter, Chapter Ten, the authors describe the link between health-related quality of life (HRQL) and emotional burden subsequent to cardiac events in stress cardiomyopathy patients

Disorders of Blood Pressure Regulation: Phenotypes, Mechanisms, Therapeutic Options

 Cardiovascular  Comments Off on Disorders of Blood Pressure Regulation: Phenotypes, Mechanisms, Therapeutic Options
Mar 052018
 

This book aims to present a comprehensive classification of hypertensive phenotypes based on underlying target organ involvement. Particular emphasis is placed on review and assessment of clinical presentation, pathophysiologic mechanisms, and possible specific therapeutic options for each hypertension phenotype. Several of these phenotypes are well known and well described in the literature, such as prehypertension, white coat and masked hypertension, isolated systolic hypertension, renovascular hypertension, endocrine hypertension, pediatric hypertension, and gestational hypertension. Other hypertension phenotypes, however, are not widely recognized, being reported only in special reviews; examples include hypertension associated with renal calculus disease and other rarer causes such as Turner syndrome, herbal and medicinal compounds, and pharmacologic agents. A detailed account of the various causes of monogenic hypertension is also included. Finally, a section is devoted to general aspects of hypertension, including the significance of blood pressure indices, the natural course of untreated and treated hypertension, hypertension mechanisms, genetics, and guidelines for blood pressure control.

Cardiac Remodeling

 Cardiovascular  Comments Off on Cardiac Remodeling
Mar 032018
 

Cardiovascular diseases are the leading cause of death in almost 40% of patients suffering from end stage renal disease (ESRD). Cardiomyopathy and ischemic heart disease are the most frequent causes of cardiac death. The risk of cardiovascular mortality in dialysis patients is 10 to 20 times greater than the general population, particularly in younger patients, taking into account that the relative risk decreases with age. Left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) is the most common cardiac abnormality in chronic kidney disease (CKD), and the survival risk ratio in such patients is independent. This book examines the molecular mechanisms, treatments and clinical implication of cardiac remodeling. The first chapter discusses risk factors for cardiovascular disease in patients on continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis. The following chapters examine the impacts tropomyosin, vitamin D, and coffee have on cardiac remodeling.
