OPINION Volume 3 Issue 1
Abstract: The following are a sampling of exercise considerations compiled from various resources. They certainly are not all encompassing or all inclusive. The extent one exercises should be determined by their health and physical capabilities. Most certainly discuss your plan with your health care provider and start very slowly until comfortable with any exercise, then increase dependent on continued comfort.

Case Report Volume 3 Issue 1
Abstract: Coronary artery dissection in a blunt chest trauma is a rare injury and its clinical diagnosis is difficult due to symptoms related to the multiple trauma. There is lack of scientific evidences regarding the management of this pathology.
Research Article Volume 3 Issue 1
Abstract: In this comparable study, sixty patients were studied between March 2016 to November 2018. All of them were diagnosed having parapneumonic purulent pleural exudation (defined by the presence of purulent pleural effusion or pleural fluid with a pH below 7.2 associated with signs of chest infection and/or proven bacterial invasion of the pleural space). All of them were subjected to proper thoracostomy tube drainage with antibiotic coverage. Patients were divided into 2 groups. Patient selection was according to certain inclusion criteria for each group category.
Case Series Volume 2 Issue 1
Abstract: Cardiopulmonary resuscitation is usually performed after cardiogenic shock and cardiac arrest but conventional CPR (cCPR) might be unsuccessful to provide return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC). Some other methods have been developed to provide and restore circulation for this scenario and Veno-arterial (VA) Extra-corporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) has been safely used in cardiogenic shock, post myocardiotomy cardiac failure and after cardiac arrest for many years.
Case Report Volume 2 Issue 1
Abstract: Thrombocytopaenia is a recognized complication after aortic valve replacement (AVR), sometimes it has been reported as heparin-induced, and it can be associated with high mortality and morbidity. This case report is describing the first case of thrombotic thrombocytopaenic purpura (TTP) after AVR using the Trifecta bioprosthesis.

Abstract: New ISHLT 2013 criteria requires further study on significance of histopathological changes in Endomyocardial Biopsy (EMB). Guidelines concerning optimal EMB quality for rejection assessment are sparse in literature.
Abstract: Atrial Fibrillation (AF) is the most common arrhythmia following cardiac surgery, and contributes significantly to the post-operative morbidity. However, an understanding of the molecular changes to the left atrium in patients requiring cardiovascular surgery, which place them at greater risk for developing post-operative AF is not completely understood.
Case Report Volume 1 Issue 1
Abstract: Lung ultrasound is a useful tool in intensive care unit. In addition to imaging various lung and pleural diseases, LUS could guide interventional procedure. We describe a case of manual recruitment of atelectasis under lung ultrasound guidance in a child after surgical ligation of patent ductus arteriosus.
Abstract: Severe mitral annular calcification (MAC) is occasionally associated with degenerative mitral valve dysfunction especially in the elderly and renal patients. Dealing with the MAC at the time of mitral valve replacement is difficult and hazardous.
