Ischemic heart disease Impact factor
Ischemia is the most common cause of death in most western countries. The term Ischaemia means "reduced blood supply". The coronary arteries supply blood to the heart muscle and no alternative blood supply exists, so a blockage in the coronary arteries reduces the supply of blood to heart muscle. Generally Ischemic heart disease is caused by atherosclerosis, The artery lumens appear normal by angiography but sudden narrowing or closure of large coronary arteries or of coronary artery end branches by debris showering downstream in the flowing blood. It is usually felt as angina, especially if a large area is affected. The narrowing or closure is predominantly caused by the covering of atheromatous plaques within the wall of the artery rupturing, in turn leading to a heart attack (Heart attacks caused by just artery narrowing are rare). A heart attack causes damage to heart muscle by cutting off its blood supply. Impact Factor is a measure of the frequency with which the ""average article"" in a journal has been cited in a given period of time. The impact factor is used as standard dimension and the relative importance of a scientific journal within its field. The Impact Factor is calculated by several scientific methods including citation analysis. International Journal of Cardiovascular Research emerges as a best indexed journal with impact factor compared to other competitive journals focusing chronic ischemic heart disease and other cardiology studies 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. "
