Water hardness zoning of Isfahan Province, Iran, and its relationship with cardiovascular mortality, 2013-2015.

ARYA Atheroscler 2019 Nov;15(6):275-280

Researcher, Isfahan Cardiovascular Research Center, Cardiovascular Research Institute, Isfahan University of Medical Sciences, Isfahan, Iran.

Background: Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is one of the common diseases and today, it is considered as not only an important cause of mortality but also a significant aspect of health geography. The evidence presented in the literature indicates that hard water may reduce the cases of sudden death caused by CVDs because drinking water contains significant amounts of calcium and magnesium, which play a crucial role in the electrical activity of heart. Hence, the present study aimed at investigating the relationship between water hardness and CVD mortality rate in Isfahan, Iran. Read More

CASCADE screening and registry of familial hypercholesterolemia in Iran: Rationale and design.

ARYA Atheroscler 2019 Mar;15(2):53-58

Professor, Isfahan Cardiovascular Research Center, Cardiovascular Research Institute, Isfahan University of Medical Sciences, Isfahan, Iran.

Background: Familial hypercholesterolemia (FH) is one of the most common genetic disorders, which leads to premature coronary artery disease (CAD). It has been suggested that heterozygous FH affects around 1:250 to 1:500 in the general population or even more than this, and homozygous FH affects 1:1000000 of the population. If patients with FH are not diagnosed and treated early in life, many of them will develop premature CAD event. Read More
