However, these studies and the guidelines previously proposed are mainly based on small studies which included young men with a low risk of experiencing a myocardial infarction. Furthermore, there have been few randomized, controlled studies conducted to evaluate the effects of cardiac rehabilitation on cardiovascular morbidity.

The Danrehab study reported similar reduction in the length of stay for patients with heart disease and at high risk for ischemic heart disease. Transferring these findings into nursing practice will provide great benefits.
FA usually revels itself when children are between the ages of 3 and 12, but in rare cases no symptoms are present until adulthood. Nosebleeds or easy bruising may be a first sign. Blood tests may reveal a low white or red cell or platelet count or other abnormalities. FA sometimes is evident at birth through a variety of physical defects. While the total number of FA patients is not documented worldwide, scientists estimate that the carrier frequency for FA is somewhere between 1 in 600 and 1 in 100.
Study limitations The number of diabetic patients in this study is limited,because as a tertiary center diabetic patients referred to our institution were complex patients and most of them had overt hypertension. The second limitation of our study is;we could not make an analysis for determining factors of masked hypertension other than poor glycemic control,due to limited number of patients. Conclusion Masked hypertension incidence is increased diabetic patients especially with high HbA1c levels,even though it is not statistically different and patients of which HbA1c levels>6.5 had higher blood pressure measurements in ABPM. T2DM patients with a potentially high risk of clinical cardiovascular diseases and hypertension-induced damage to target organs should be finically evaluated for MH.
The heart may be directly involved by tumoral infiltration ranging from gross cardiac masses to microscopic infiltrations. Myo- pericardial involvement and valvular changes have been reported in association with lymphoma and leukaemia,but not early in the disease course(15, 16). There are few numbers of cases with ALL/Eo initially presented with cardiac mass; so the best therapeutic regimen in such patients has not yet been defined. L- Asaparaginase should be used cautiously in chemotherapy regimen of ALL/Eo since there are fears of thromboembolic events triggered by synergistic procoagulant effect of this drug and eosinophilia. Ronald S.Go et al reported a case of ALL/Eo treated by L-asparginase based regimen that developed fatal deep vein and intracardiac thromboses (17).
The main finding of this study is that the serum ADMA levels were significantly increased in MHT patients with DM compared to normotensive diabetic subjects. ADMA levels, BMI, and low HDL levels were independent predictors of MHT in patients with DM. ADMA levels positively correlated with ABPM measurements, especially daytime measurements, but were not related to office BP measurements. ADMA levels may play a role in prediction, with a good sensitivity and negative predictive value but poor specificity and positive predictive value. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first study to examine the relationship between ADMA and MHT in the current literature.

Clinical trials were carried out in patients suffering from Ischemic heart disease. Patients selected for the trials were suffering from severe angina and showed no or very little response to the medical therapy. Patients were either given a recombinant protein or gene delivery vectors by bolus delivery. The therapy consisted of growth factors like FGF-2, VEGF121, VEGF165 and recombinant VEGF-A165 and the results were not very promising .

Because there are no symptoms, people can develop heart disease and kidney problems without knowing they have high blood pressure. Some people may experience: bad headache, mild dizziness, and blurry vision. Traditionally, diagnosis of high blood pressure (BP) has relied on consecutive checks of clinic BP over a 2 to 3 month period, with hypertension confirmed if BP remains persistently raised over 140/90 mmHg. This method of diagnosis has significant limitations because the BP measured for an individual patient in a clinic setting may not reflect their BP in day-to-day life. The main concern is that as a result of the “white coat syndrome”, hypertension may be over-diagnosed when checked in the clinic setting; resulting ... ... middle of paper ... ... potassium level is higher than 4.5 mmol/liters.

According to Psychological Science, “ERP is an effective treatment for OCD, with up to 80% of the people who undergo treatment experiencing at least 60% reduction in their symptoms” (Tracy, Jo Anne, et. al., “Classical Conditioning in a Nonclinical Obsessive-Compulsive Population”). In conclusion, OCD or Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder is a very complex mental and anxiety disorder. It has many causes like genetics, life events and parenting and family issues, brain abnormalities, and infections.
Several studies have been carried out to explore the outcomes of endoscopic and open carpal tunnel release. A randomised controlled trial by Atroshi et al to compare endoscopic and open carpal tunnel release showed that less postoperative pain are associated with endoscopic surgery compared to open release9. This study involved 128 patients with confirmed idiopathic CTS diagnosed clinically and electrophysiologically9. Patients who underwent endoscopic released had less post operative pain in the scar and proximal hand and also less activity limitations compared to the other group (53% and 82% respectively)9. In both groups, the hand sensation and strength improved by 3 months9.
