  6. Balloon Angioplasty Of The Heart
    Balloon angioplasty of the heart is an alternative procedure to bypass surgery in order to treat atherosclerosis. In this process the tip of a rubber balloon is threaded into the affected arteries and then inflated to crush atherosclerotic plaques that cause blockage. This procedure has been proven effective to treat coronary heart disease, but blockage may recur. [read more]

  7. Ballooning Mitral Valve Syndrome

  10. Bantu siderosis
    Bantu siderosis is the overload of iron primarily seen in South African people. It involves unusual iron deposits in the liver. It is said that several African people are liable to an augmented skill to absorb iron. Initially, this was said to be a cause of ungalvanised barrels utilized to keep home-made beer that led to augmented oxidation and augmented levels of iron in the beer. Additional researches show that only those individuals that drink this beer acquires an overload in iron and the same syndrome happened in the people of African descent. Because of this, researchers were led to discover the gene polymorphism in the gene for ferroportin that prompts several individuals of African descent to overload iron. [read more]

    Bare lymphocyte syndrome 2 or the other term for the disease is Defective expression of HLA class 2. BLSII genetic basis is not because of the gene MHC II. The result of the mutations in genes is used as the genetic basis that codes for proteins that usually control the expression if the MHC II genes. [read more]

  16. Baritosis
    Baritosis a condition of the lung, that results from inhaling barium dust or barium that has compounds. It is a condition that is benign generally that does not result to symptoms except for irritation.
