Diseases of the heart and blood vessels (cardiology)

Atherosclerosis of the abdominal aorta and its branches

Atherosclerosis of the abdominal aorta is a chronic pathology. The disease is characterized by a specific lesion of the vessel, connective tissue proliferation against the background of fatty infiltration of the inner wall, which generally leads to organ and general circulatory disorders.

Cavernous sinus thrombosis

Cavernous sinus thrombosis is considered a rare disorder, and at the same time quite dangerous, since there is a significant risk of inflammation spreading to the area of cerebral structures. 


When pains are felt that are localized on the left side of the chest - where the heart is located, then when contacting a doctor, cardialgia will be indicated in the medical report.

Pericardial effusion

Pericardial effusion is more often a consequence, not an underlying cause: the disease develops in response to an existing polyserositis or other pathology, accompanied by a lesion of the pericardium.

Bradycardia Types

There may be no subjective sensations of slowing of the heart rhythm, and if they exist, regardless of their type, they appear the same. Isolation of different types of bradycardia matters not so much for patients as for the doctor in the context of determining treatment tactics.

Bradycardia: symptoms, degrees, effects

The lower limit of the normal heart rate varies within fairly wide limits for different age groups of patients. For adults of working age, this is considered to be 60 beats per minute.

Treatment of palpitations: first aid, what can and can not

Among cardiac glycosides, the most famous are Digitoxin, Celanid. Such drugs are prescribed only by a doctor, since their irrational intake can lead to disastrous consequences, even to a cardiac arrest.
