Coronary Artery Disease Journals
"Coronary heart disease is the most common cause of death in the existing world. Acute coronary syndrome (ACS), a common complication of coronary heart disease, is associated with more than 2 million hospitalizations worldwide each year. The clinical disorders ranging from ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) to non-ST-elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI) and unstable angina (UA). It is estimated that a myocardial infarction (MI) is the most common heart problem and at least one person dies each minute from a major coronary event. Most cases of ACS are caused by rupture of an atherosclerotic plaque in a coronary artery, resulting in the formation of a thrombus. When plaques erode or rupture, the resulting thrombus restricts the flow of blood to the heart muscle. A prolonged lack of blood supply resulting in necrosis of heart muscle tissue is defined as an MI. Plaque rupture results in exposure of the contents of the plaque and sub endothelial fibres to the blood, leading to the activation of platelets, which in turn adhere to subendothelial structures. Aggregation of additional platelets causes the thrombus to grow. At the same time, the coagulation cascade is activated, resulting in the production of thrombin, which stimulates further platelet recruitment and aggregation. Thrombin also catalyses the generation of fibrin, which forms the main protein component of the thrombus. International Journal of Cardiovascular Research emerges as a best indexed journal with impact factor compared to other competitive journals focusing on Coronary Artery Diseases by bringing up the recent research to global scientific community through its publications. The papers submitted are undergone through perfect plagiarism checks, later peer reviewed by the expert group and published after through revisions. "
