Recent increases of life-style related diseases such as dyslipidemia, hypertension, and diabetes promote atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease rapidly, and the expansion of the elderly population also increases the number of patients with impaired cardiac function. We have adapted modern knowledge and techniques in cardiovascular medicine to diagnose and treat these disorders. Through these activities, we have investigated the etiology and pathophysiology of these diseases, and conducted a series of studies in order to develop and establish new diagnostic or therapeutic approaches.
