Journal of Heart and Cardiovascular Research

About Journal of Heart and Cardiovascular Research

Journal of Heart and Cardiovascular Research is a peer reviewed journal that provides a worldwide platform for dispersal of current findings in the field of cardiology, diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular diseases such as cardiomyopathy, atherosclerosis, arrhythmia, heart attack, impairment of function of cardiac valves and congenital heart diseases. The journal also aims at creating awareness on prevention and early detection of CVDs by monitoring symptoms like frequent recurrence of cardiac angina.

The scope of the journal includes current advancements in diagnostic and therapeutic methods relating to cardiac dysfunctions, such as Percutaneous Transluminal Coronary Angioplasty (PTCA), Echocardiography (ECG), Coronary Angiography, Myocardial Biopsy, Pericardiocentesis, Cardiac Catheterization, Stent Placement, Bypass Surgery and Insertion of Pacemaker.

The journal accepts manuscripts providing knowledge on recent findings on various aspects of cardiac anatomy and physiology, cardiovascular pathology and other factors like obesity, smoking and lack of physical exercise which may lead to the incidence of cardiovascular diseases.

The journal accepts original research article, review article, short communication, case report, letter-to-the-Editor and Editorials for publication in an open access platform. All the articles published in the journal can be accessed online without any subscription charges and will receive the benefit of extensive worldwide visibility.

Processing of the articles will be done through the Editorial Manager System for hassle free operation by the authors and the publisher. It helps in maintaining the quality of the peer review process and provides easy access to the authors to track the process of manuscript evaluation and publication in an automated way.

All the submitted manuscripts undergo peer review done by the external subject matter experts under the aegis of the Editor-in-Chief or assigned Editorial committee member of the Journal of Heart and Cardiovascular Research. Approval of at least two independent reviewers and the editor is mandatory for any manuscript to be considered for publication.

Bypass Surgery

To create a new route for blood and oxygen to reach our heart, bypass surgery is a surgery that is done to the problems caused by coronary artery disease and leads the blood to flow through the heart muscle despite blocked arteries.

It is actually a surgery of heart blood vessel taken from your leg, arm, chest and abdomen. This surgery creates a new path for the flow of blood to the body. The surgeon in this therapy takes a healthy piece of vein from a particular part of the body and attaches to the coronary artery just above and below the blocked area of heart.

This allows blood to bypass the blockage. As an initial step, the surgeon first insert a heart-lung machine in the patient's body which allows the circulation of oxygenated blood through your body during surgery. When the surgery is done, the surgeons will remove the machine and the proper functioning of heart is checked.

Heart Attack

It is the blockage of the arteries and vessels that provide oxygen and nutrient-rich blood to heart. It is also called coronary heart disease and is the leading cause of death in humans. This occurs when the coronary arteries become blocked or clogged. Often this leads to an irregular heartbeat - called an arrhythmia - that causes a severe decrease in the pumping function of the heart. A blockage that is not treated within a few hours causes the affected heart muscle to die. The most common cause of heart disease is narrowing or blockage of the coronary arteries, the blood vessels that supply blood to the heart itself. Heart attack is sometimes fatal in its initial stage. However the chances increses if a person is already suffering from any type of cardiac problem.

Heart Failure

When the heart is unable to pump sufficiently and stops pumping blood around the body it causes heart failure. The most common causes are heart attack, high blood pressure and cardiomyopathy. Symptoms commonly include shortness of breath, swelling and fatigue. Lifestyle changes-such as exercising, reducing salt in your diet, managing stress and losing weight-can improve the quality of life along with the protection of heart failure. The most common cause of heart disease is narrowing or blockage of the coronary arteries, the blood vessels that supply blood to the heart itself. heart failure are sometimes fatal and can be present by birth. Heart failure change the normal flow of blood through the heart.

Angiogenesis

Angiogenesis Angio means blood vessels and genesis means creation. Therefore, Angiogenesis means the origination and development of new capillary blood vessels in normal or malignant tissue. Angiogenesis is an important process of the body which is controlled by chemical signals produced in the body during health and disease condition. These chemical signals can help to stimulate the repair of damaged blood vessels as well the formation of new blood vessels. Abnormal growth of blood vessel, whether it is excessive or insufficient, is known as a “common denominator”. It underlying many deadly and debilitating conditions which including cancer, skin diseases, age-related blindness, diabetic ulcers, cardiovascular disease, stroke, and many others.

Cardiotoxicity

Cardiotoxicity is a condition when there is damage to the heart muscle. It is the occurrence of heart electrophysiology dysfunction or muscle damage. The heart becomes weaker and is not as efficient in pumping and therefore circulating blood. This may be due to chemotherapy drugs, or other medications used to control respective disease.

Cardiac Surgery

It is performed by cardiac surgeons of heart. It also include the field of medicine involved in surgical treatment of heart diseases. To treat valvular heart disease from various causes including endocarditis, rheumatic heart disease and atherosclerosis, Cardiac Surgery is applied which includes heart transplantation. The most common type of heart surgery for adults is coronary artery bypass grafting, in which a healthy artery or vein from the body is connected, or grafted, to a blocked coronary (heart) artery.

Traditional way of heart surgery is done by opening the chest wall and then operating the heart. However, newer methods of heart surgery includes the insertion of a cardiac devise by making a small cut between the ribs instead of cutting the chest wall or breastwall.

Cardiovascular Diseases

Cardiovascular disease describes a disease of the heart. Cardiovascular diseases include a number of conditions affecting functions of the heart that include heart failure, heart valve disease, aorta disease, coronary heart disease, vascular disease, etc.

Congenital Heart Disease

Congenital heart defect is a disorder with the structure of the heart that is present by birth. Congenital heart defects are the most common type of birth defect. The defects can involve the walls of the heart, the valves of the heart, and the arteries and veins near the heart.

Coronary Heart Disease

Disease of the heart caused by a buildup of atherosclerotic plaque in the coronary arteries that can lead to Angina pectoris or Heart attack.

Congestive Heart Failure

Congestive Heart Failure is a chronic condition that affects the four chambers of the heart. Early symptoms include fatigue and weight gain, occurs when the heart muscle doesnot pump blood.

Myocardial Infarction

Myocardial infarction is defined as the cardiovascular disease which deals with insufficient blood supply and oxygen to heart, then heart muscle gets damaged. The most common symptom is chest pain, shortness of breath, nausea, vomiting.

*2016 Journal Impact Factor was established by dividing the number of articles published in 2014 and 2015 with the number of times they are cited in 2016 based on Google search and the Scholar Citation Index database. If 'X' is the total number of articles published in 2014 and 2015, and 'Y' is the number of times these articles were cited in indexed journals during 2016 then, impact factor = Y/X
