  • circulation
  • Congestive heart failure takes place when the heart is unable to maintain an adequate circulation of blood in the bodily tissues or to pump out the venous blood returned to it by the veins (Merriam-Webster). (bartleby.com)
  • adulthood
  • Objective Patients with unoperated single ventricle (SV) rarely survive into adulthood with good functional status and may develop Eisenmenger's syndrome (ES). (bmj.com)
  • Very rarely, a person with Single Ventricle reaches adulthood without treatment and without symptoms. (pted.org)
  • biodegradable polyester and gelatin fibers
  • To make the ventricle, the researchers used a combination of biodegradable polyester and gelatin fibers that were collected on a rotating collector shaped like a bullet. (eurekalert.org)
  • Collaborators from the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS), the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering, the Harvard Stem Cell Institute and Boston Children's engineered the ventricles by seeding rat or human heart cells onto 3D nanofiber scaffolds made of biodegradable polyester and gelatin fibers.

  • coronary
  • Wang LW, Baron DW, Wynne DG et al (2012) Coronary-cameral and coronary arteriovenous fistulae in a transplanted heart. (springer.com)
  • Ángel Luis Sánchez Bayón, a 66-year-old resident of Cadreita (Navarre), had a left ventricle with less than 15% capacity of ejection (blood pumping), added to which was a serious coronary pathology and diabetes as principal associated diseases. (healthcanal.com)
  • patient
  • The patient exercised for a total of eleven (11) minutes and thirty (30) seconds of a Bruce protocol with a peak heart rate of 161bpm. (medhelp.org)
  • The present invention relates to a catheter or surgical based system capable of closing off a portion of a ventricle of a patient. (patentsencyclopedia.com)
  • The operation was carried out successfully by the Heart Surgery Service at the University of Navarra Hospital last 27 September and, 18 days after the operation, the patient was released from hospital. (healthcanal.com)
  • Although the patient had a suitable profile as a candidate for a heart transplant, the, associated pathologies greatly complicated the viability of the operation", stated doctor Gregorio Rábago, Director of the Heart Surgery Service at the University of Navarra Hospital and lead surgeon in the operation. (healthcanal.com)
  • Thus, Ángel Luis Sánchez Bayón from Madrid and resident in Cadreita (Navarre) became the second patient in the whole of Spain who had an artificial ventricle implanted permanently. (healthcanal.com)
  • From the moment of discharge from the hospital, this patient has been admitted only once in order to adjust his treatment and then is monitored in an out-patient manner by his cardiologist in Tudela and by the Heart Surgery Service at the University of Navarra Hospital. (healthcanal.com)
  • The patient in question, Mr Ángel Luis Sánchez Bayón, showed very good tolerance to the artificial ventricle. (healthcanal.com)
  • Engineering and Applied Sciences
  • Our group has spent a decade plus working up to the goal of building a whole heart and this is an important step towards that goal," said Kit Parker, the Tarr Family Professor of Bioengineering and Applied Physics at the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences and senior author of the study. (eurekalert.org)
  • pump
  • Its principal function is to help the heat pump blood with the force required to get to all parts of the body, substituting for the action of the left ventricle. (healthcanal.com)
  • Failure
  • Participants with RV hypertrophy (or abnormal thickening of the RV) had double the risk of heart failure or death compared to those with normal RV size. (healthcanal.com)
  • These findings run counter to the traditional belief that for otherwise-healthy adults, the RV plays a limited role in clinical heart failure," said Kawut, who is also a member of the Penn Cardiovascular Institute . (healthcanal.com)
  • Growth failure is noted in many infants with a single ventricle who manifest both cyanosis and heart failure that commonly persist after palliative surgery. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Heart failure is a significant problem, and carries substantial mortality. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Prevention and reversal of LV remodeling are correlated with decreased risk of death and heart failure events. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • HLHS
  • To compare cerebral blood flow patterns in the fetus with single ventricle based on (1) obstruction to aortic flow (HLHS) or (2) unobstructed aortic flow but obstructed pulmonic flow (SVrp), and to assess for trends during gestation. (ahajournals.org)
