Mini-review: Dysregulated microRNAs and long non-coding RNAs in cardiac development and pediatric heart failure.

Lee Toni, Frehiwet Hailu, Carmen C Sucharov,

Non-coding RNAs (ncRNAs) are broadly described as RNA molecules that are not translated into protein. The investigation of dysregulated ncRNAs in human diseases such as cancer, neurological, and cardiovascular diseases has been under way for well over a decade. microRNAs and long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) are the best characterized ncRNAs. ...

Approach to a Child with Congestive Heart Failure.

Manojkumar Rohit, Sudhansu Budakoty,

Pediatric heart failure (PHF) is an important cause of mortality and morbidity. Whereas ischemic heart disease is the most important cause of heart failure in adults, congenital heart diseases (CHD) and cardiomyopathies are important etiologies of PHF. Management of PHF also differs from that of adults. Here authors have reviewed ... Read more >>
