Myocardial infarction: What is it? Causes, Symptoms and Treatment

Myocardial infarction

The heart attack is the destruction of part of the heart muscle called myocardium . It occurs when, for example, a clot prevents the blood from circulating normally in the coronary artery, an artery that irrigates the heart. The latter is poorly irrigated and the heart muscle damaged. Myocardial infarction, sometimes called a heart attack or acute coronary syndrome , is fatal in up to 10% of […]

Hyperlipidemia (cholesterol and triglycerides) Causes, Symptoms and Treatment


The hyperlipidemia is having a high rate of blood lipids (excess fat), which included cholesterol and triglycerides. This physical state does not cause symptoms. For many people, it does not have any harmful consequences. It is, however, one of the most important of the many risk factors that, added together, can lead to cardiovascular disease. The excess of lipids in the blood […]

Extrasystole: Causes, Symptoms and Treatment


Extrasystoles: what is it? Extrasystoles are very frequent and most often benign when they occur on a healthy heart; they can be serious when associated with heart disease.

Definition of endocarditis Endocarditis is a rare infection of the endocardium (internal membrane, covering the heart), but potentially fatal. The main cause of endocarditis is an infection with a bacterium, circulating in the body through the […]

Hyperlipidemia (cholesterol and triglycerides) Symptoms causes and treatment


Medical treatments for hyperlipidemia (cholesterol and triglycerides) The treatment varies according to the lipid balance values and the presence or The hyperlipidemia is having a high rate of blood lipids (excess fat) , which included cholesterol and triglycerides . This physical state does not cause symptoms. For many people, it does not have any harmful consequences. It is, however, one of the most important of the many […]

Apolipoprotein B

Apolipoprotein B

Definition The apolipoprotein B analysis is a blood test used to measure the amount of apolipoprotein B100 (Apo B100). The utility of measuring Apo B100 is in the context of a study of hyperlipemia and to evaluate the risk factors of atherosclerosis, circulatory, coronary, etc. Their elevation increases the risk of this type of disease.  Apolipoproteins are part of […]
