New frontiers in heart failure detection: Saliva testing
Punyadeera, Chamindie (2016) New frontiers in heart failure detection: Saliva testing. BMJ Innovations, 2(3), pp. 106-108.
Cardiovascular disease (CVD) covers a broad range of health conditions that affect the heart and blood vessels.1 The most common CVDs include coronary heart disease (CHD), ischaemic heart disease (IHD), acute myocardial infarction (AMI), stroke and heart failure (HF).2 This commentary will focus on the use of saliva to detect HF. HF is a complex pathophysiological syndrome that arises due to the inability of the heart to take in and/or supply sufficient blood to the body. The clinical manifestation of HF could arise due to myocardial disease, most commonly coronary artery disease, hypertension and cardiomyopathy. Even though the aetiology of HF is highly variable, HF syndrome represents the interplay between the cardiac, renal and vascular systems. ..
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
