  • nerves
  • After other treatments had failed such as medications, catheter ablation and an implantable defibrillator, patients received surgeries to snip the cardiac sympathetic nerves destined for both sides of the heart. (redorbit.com)
  • Autonomic control of arrhythmias The autonomic interplay between organ systems is complex and its study in humans is constrained by the limited ability to measure neuronal firing within the sympathetic ganglia and nerves. (acancerjourney.info)
  • We were impressed particularly by the lack of agreement in the literature as to which of the extrinsic cardiac nerves were responsible for inhihition and acceleration of the heart. (docme.ru)
  • 1-3) Previously in the e-journal, were published a review of the role of renal sympathetic nerves and denervation by Prof Tendera , on identification and management of resistant hypertension by Prof. Ruilope , as well as the initial clinical reports on denervation by Prof. Clement . (escardio.org)
  • Although involvement of anterior horn cells in the spinal cord and motor neurons in the brainstem are the major sites of pathology responsible for neuromuscular signs, inflammation also may involve skeletal or cardiac muscle (myositis, myocarditis), motor axons (polyradiculitis), and peripheral nerves [Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS), brachial plexopathy]. (frontiersin.org)
  • ganglia
  • Other potential complications include inadequate resection of the ganglia, gustatory sweating, pneumothorax, cardiac dysfunction, post-operative pain, and finally Horner's syndrome secondary to resection of the stellate ganglion. (blogspot.com)
  • In addition, involvement of spinal sympathetic neurons and ganglia provides an explanation for autonomic instability seen in some patients. (frontiersin.org)
  • Sympathetic sprouting has been documented in the region of peripheral terminal fields of sensory neurons (262), at the site of nerve trauma (57), and within the dorsal root ganglia (DRG) containing cell bodies of sen- sory neurons (248, 343). (blogspot.com)
  • incidence
  • According to recordings from implanted cardiac monitors, the incidence of non-sustained VT is 13%, of sustained VT is 3%, and of VF is 3% in the early post myocardial-infarction period [ 6 ]. (clinmedjournals.org)
  • Kalyanam Shivkumar
  • We are always seeking additional options to help patients," said senior study author Dr. Kalyanam Shivkumar, director, UCLA Cardiac Arrhythmia Center and co-director of the Oppenheimer Family Center for Neurobiology of Stress at UCLA. (redorbit.com)
  • abnormal
  • The goal of this study is to determine whether cardiac sympathetic denervation can prevent these abnormal heart rhythms from occurring and therefore, prevent, ICD shocks which are not only painful, but have been shown to reduce quality of life and/or lead to depression, particularly in the period immediately after the shock.

  • fibers
  • In order to clarify the origins and pathways of vasoactive intestinal polypeptide (VIP)-containing nerve fibers in cerebral blood vessels of rat, denervation experiments and retrograde axonal tracing methods (true blue) were used. (lu.se)
  • Two weeks after bilateral removal of the sphenopalatine ganglion or sectioning of the structures in the ethmoidal foramen, VIP fibers in the anterior part of the circle of Willis completely disappeared. (lu.se)

  • Alterations in sympathetic fibers rapidly follow pe- ripheral nerve injury. (blogspot.com)
  • These sub- stances stimulate and direct the growth of sympathetic fibers, which form basket-like terminals around the satel- lite cells that, in turn, surround neuronal cell bodies (247, 248, 343). (blogspot.com)
  • acute
  • In the current setting of cardiac care units patients with sustained VA associated with an acute myocardial infarction are usually characterized by the following features: severe and/or prolonged ischemia or arrhythmogenic substrates prior to the acute event. (clinmedjournals.org)
  • Patients with delayed reperfusion therapy mostly due to delays between the first symptoms until transfer to an acute cardiac care center (late presenters). (clinmedjournals.org)
  • Acute kidney injury (AKI) is common after cardiac surgery and profoundly affects postoperative mortality and morbidity. (readbyqxmd.com)
  • postoperative
  • We determined the association between postoperative AKI and intraoperative urinary oxygen tension (PO2), measured via a fiber optic probe in the tip of the urinary catheter, in 65 patients undergoing high-risk cardiac surgery requiring cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB). (readbyqxmd.com)
  • function
  • The close relation between the energetic demand of exercising muscles and cardiovascular functions is testified by the fact that during dynamic exercise cardiac output (CO) normally rises linearly as a function of O 2 uptake [ 2 - 11 ]. (hindawi.com)
