Summary of "Association of erectile dysfunction with incident atrial fibrillation: the Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis (MESA)."

Erectile dysfunction has been associated with atrial fibrillation in cross-sectional studies, but the association of erectile dysfunction with incident atrial fibrillation is less well established.

Atrial fibrillation and stroke: how much atrial fibrillation is enough to cause a stroke?

The association between atrial fibrillation and stroke is firmly established, and anticoagulation reduces stroke risk in patients with atrial fibrillation. However, the role of anticoagulation in very...

MOLECULAR MECHANISM OF the association between atrial fibrillation and heart failure inCLUDEs Energy METABOLIC DYSREGULATION DUE to MITOCHONDRIAL DYSFUNCTION.

Atrial fibrillation (AF) and heart failure (HF) commonly coexist, yet the molecular mechanisms of this association have not been determined. We hypothesized that an energy deficit due to mitochondrial...

The association between atrial fibrillation and Alzheimer's disease: fact or fallacy? A systematic review and meta-analysis.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Rapid, irregular atrial contractions caused by a block of electrical impulse conduction in the right atrium and a reentrant wave front traveling up the inter-atrial septum and down the right atrial free wall or vice versa. Unlike ATRIAL FIBRILLATION which is caused by abnormal impulse generation, typical atrial flutter is caused by abnormal impulse conduction. As in atrial fibrillation, patients with atrial flutter cannot effectively pump blood into the lower chambers of the heart (HEART VENTRICLES).

Long-term changes in the electrophysiological parameters and/or anatomical structures of the HEART ATRIA that result from prolonged changes in atrial rate, often associated with ATRIAL FIBRILLATION or long periods of intense EXERCISE.

A cardiotonic glycoside obtained mainly from Digitalis lanata; it consists of three sugars and the aglycone DIGOXIGENIN. Digoxin has positive inotropic and negative chronotropic activity. It is used to control ventricular rate in ATRIAL FIBRILLATION and in the management of congestive heart failure with atrial fibrillation. Its use in congestive heart failure and sinus rhythm is less certain. The margin between toxic and therapeutic doses is small. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p666)

The inability in the male to have a PENILE ERECTION due to psychological or organ dysfunction.

Inability to achieve and maintain an erection (ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION) due to defects in the arterial blood flow to the PENIS, defect in venous occlusive function allowing blood drainage (leakage) from the erectile tissue (corpus cavernosum penis), or both.

Erectile Dysfunction
Erectile dysfunction (ED or impotence) is the inability to get and maintain an erection that is sufficient for satisfactory sexual intercourse, and affects half of all men between the ages of 40 to 70. The causes of ED can be both physical and psycholo...
