  • spironolactone
  • The purpose of the study is to collect information about the potential benefit and safety of low dose spironolactone for a patient with diastolic heart failure (DHF) and to determine whether spironolactone can cause the patient's condition to improve. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Hypertensive
  • Our findings suggest that APN may represent a novel target for hypertensive heart disease and DHF. (ahajournals.org)
  • Background- Specific treatments targeting the pathophysiology of hypertensive heart disease are lacking. (ahajournals.org)
  • Hypertensive heart disease is a common cause of heart failure (HF) in the community setting. (ahajournals.org)
  • Specific treatments targeting the pathophysiology of hypertensive heart disease are lacking and new approaches are required. (ahajournals.org)
  • 13,14 Effective therapies for hypertensive heart disease might therefore be expected to result in improvement of both systolic and diastolic function, depending on the sensitivity and accuracy of the particular measurement techniques used. (ahajournals.org)
  • diastole
  • The internal contours of the inferior thorax- My observations suggest that if the sternum is "too close" to the spine as a result of kyphosis, pectus excavatum, or internal rotation of each hemithorax, the diastole will be inadequate because of the physical constraints of the available space for the heart to expand its diastolic volume. (jaoa.org)
  • The heart cannot expand further into diastole when wedged between the anterior thoracic spine and the posterior sternum. (jaoa.org)
  • It is possible that their heart failure was primarily diastolic in nature, and using osteopathic manipulative treatment to enlarge the available space for diastole was sufficient for symptom relief. (jaoa.org)
  • fluid retention
  • hi i have been doing some reading on line to try and get to the bottom of my husbands many symptoms at this point i fear he has diastolic heart failure - he has a great deal of fluid retention in his ankles and feet - bloated stomach - lost of urinating at night - he also has high blood pressure. (healthboards.com)
  • Current guidelines suggest that patients should limit the salt content of their diet, as too much salty food can cause fluid retention and other problems in diastolic heart failure. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • lungs
  • The fluid which ought to really be pumped into the heart, when finds no channel to stream, goes into lungs, along these lines causing Diastolic Heart Attack. (mnheart.com)
  • Coronary artery diseases known as CAD, hamper the streaming of blood into the heart supply routes, making the liquid fill in the lungs. (mnheart.com)
  • elderly
  • Because of expanding levels of stress nowadays, heart failure incidents are increasing not only in elderly but also in younger people. (mnheart.com)
