    Long QT Syndrome, also called LQTS, is a disorder of the heart’s electrical system, like other arrhythmias. In LQTS, the lower chambers of the heart (ventricles) take too long to contract and release. The gap of time needed to complete a cycle can be measured and compared to normal averages. Development of the mature heart is a complex process that turns a field of mesodermal progenitors into a four-chambered organ with divided circulation. When this process goes awry, cardiac anomalies arise, and abnormalities of the heart present at birth, or congenital heart disease .

    The mouth serves as "a mirror of health or disease, as a sentinel or early warning system, as an accessible model for the study of other tissues and organs, and as a potential source of pathology affecting other systems and organs (Dr. Shantala Arunkumar, ).   Disease conditions that affect the human heart and the methods used to diagnose and treat them are all covered in one concise volume. Written by a past president of the Boston Chapter of the American Heart Association, Heart Disease is a comprehensive account of the leading cause of death in the West. Sequential chapters describe the structure and function of the heart, the various disease Reviews: 7.

Heart failure describes the inability or failure of the heart to meet the needs of organs and tissues for oxygen and nutrients. This decrease in cardiac output, the amount of blood that the heart pumps, is not adequate to circulate the blood returning to the heart from the body and lungs, causing fluid (mainly water) to leak from capillary blood vessels.

As the heart is a major organ in the circulatory system, it is obvious that the heart condition affects the normal functioning of the other organs.

Here is a HealthHearty article that will explain in detail on how heart disease affects the body. As we all know, heart disease and its complications are the leading cause of death worldwide.

MTHFR mutation—changes to a gene linked to an increasing number of medical conditions, including thyroid disease—has become a controversial topic among scientists. While the National Institutes of Health lists five conditions directly linked to the genetic mutation, a growing body of evidence has linked it, either directly or indirectly, to a host of disorders affecting the heart, eyes.

Ischemic means that an organ (e.g., the heart) is not getting enough blood and oxygen. Ischemic heart disease, also called coronary heart disease (CHD) or coronary artery disease, is the term given to heart problems caused by narrowed heart (coronary) arteries that supply blood to the heart muscle.

Tool: Heart Rhythm Disorders Irregular heart rhythms can cause the pumping function of the heart to fail. See how. See how. Heart Valve Disease You may not know what a heart valve is -- until it.

In this NKF Facebook Live Event, Dr. Max Gomez of CBS hosts a discussion between nephrologist Dr. Les Spry, cardiologist Dr. Michael Miller, and diabetes patient Anna Norton. Together, they discussed how to manage cardiovascular risk beyond LDL control, and why it is important for both heart and kidney health.

Your heart and kidneys are two important organs in your body. Despite the initial disease in the heart, the pathophysiology of HF evolves to affect multiple organ systems throughout the body, primarily the renal, autonomic, vascular, and cardiac system.

The structural and functional underpinnings of HF are diverse and accompanied by various cellular changes that compromised cardiomyocyte function and. Ankylosing spondylitis is also a systemic disease, meaning it can affect tissues throughout the body, not just the spine.

Accordingly, it can cause inflammation in and injury to other joints away from the spine manifest as arthritis, as well as to other organs, such as the eyes, heart, lungs, and kidneys.

Learn about symptoms, causes and treatment options in the congenital heart disease condition guide available at U.S. News and World Report. Autoimmune disease occurs when a specific adaptive immune response is mounted against self antigens.

The normal consequence of an adaptive immune response against a foreign antigen is the clearance of the antigen from the body.

Virus-infected cells, for example, are destroyed by cytotoxic T cells, whereas soluble antigens are cleared by formation of immune complexes of antibody and.

Cardiovascular disease - Cardiovascular disease - Abnormalities of individual heart chambers: Abnormalities of the heart chambers may be serious and even life-threatening. In hypoplastic left heart syndrome, the left-sided heart chambers, including the aorta, are underdeveloped.

Infants born with this condition rarely survive more than two or three days. Psoriasis also causes systemic inflammation, which can affect the heart and other organs. Psoriatic arthritis, a related inflammatory condition, causes joint pain, swelling and damage.

Summary of Research Activities by Disease Categories Chronic Diseases and Organ Systems Two-year-old Hannah's 56 great-grandmother, who was born indied of tuberculosis in her thirties. Polio crippled her grandfather, and other family members died at young ages of influenza and typhoid fever. A second major component of type 1 neurofibromatosis, or von Recklinghausen disease, is the presence of large, flat cutaneous pigmentations known as cafe' au lait spots.

A Wood lamp, which uses ultraviolet light, can be used to detect lighter spots. - The other options are chromosomal disorders and do not exhibit these pigmentations. Heart disease is an umbrella term which addresses conditions and disorders that affect the structuring and functioning of the heart in some way or the other.

Common known heart conditions include heart failure, heart valve diseases, congenital heart diseases, heart muscle diseases or irregular heart rhythms.

Often, the first reaction is to attribute these changes to the beginning of Alzheimer's disease. But blood flow problems may be to blame, as well. "An estimated one-third of all cases of dementia, including those identified as Alzheimer's, can be attributed to vascular factors," says Dr.

Albert Hofman, chair of the department of epidemiology at. Scleroderma can cause scarring of the lungs, kidneys and heart tissue, increasing the risk for serious conditions such as high blood pressure and abnormal heart rhythm.

Sjogren's Syndrome Like other diseases that cause positive ANA test results, Sjogren’s syndrome is an autoimmune disorder.

Ischemic heart disease (IHD), or myocardial ischaemia, is a disease characterized by ischaemia, or, reduced blood supply, to the heart muscle, usually due to coronary artery disease and myocardial infarction. Coronary artery disease is the narrowing of the heart arteries due to atherosclerosis, the deposition of fat on the walls.

Dextrocardia with situs inversus is a condition that is characterized by abnormal positioning of the heart and other internal people affected by dextrocardia, the tip of the heart points towards the right side of the chest instead of the left inversus refers to the mirror-image reversal of the organs in the chest and abdominal cavity.

Comorbidity of Depression with Other Chronic Diseases: Major depressive disorder is the leading cause of disability in the United States and affects approximately 14 million American adults annually.

Depression frequently occurs among individuals with other medical conditions, such as advanced heart disease, Parkinson's disease, and diabetes.

We also acknowledge previous National Science Foundation support under grant numbers. Other causes of valvular heart disease. As rheumatic fever appears to be confined to history, at least in the UK, other causes of disease of heart valves take importance. Many are congenital heart disease.

Ankylosing spondylitis may be associated with aortic regurgitation.Other diseases have internal causes. Insulin dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM) is a disease that severely affects homeostasis.

It is an autoimmune disease, meaning the body is attacking itself.
