  • Doppler
  • S. F. Nagueh, I. Mikati, H. A. Kopelen, K. J. Middleton, M. A. Quiñones, and W. A. Zoghbi, "Doppler estimation of left ventricular filling pressure in sinus tachycardia. (hindawi.com)
  • myocytes
  • CARP is expressed throughout atria and ventricles, in development and in adult myocytes, however AARP is almost exclusively ventricular and only in adult myocytes. (wikipedia.org)
  • Classification of Blood Pressure in Adults Brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) is a cardiac neurohormone secreted from ventricular myocytes (ventricular muscle cells) at the end of diastole-this in response to the normal, or sub-normal (as the case may be), stretching of cardiomyocytes (heart muscle cells) during systole. (wikipedia.org)
  • Impaired diastolic function can result from the decreased compliance of ventricular myocytes, and thus the ventricles, which means the heart muscle does not stretch as much as needed during filling. (wikipedia.org)
  • reperfusion
  • 1. Experiments of coronary occlusion and reperfusion : We measured regional myocardiall contractility and myocardial blood flow by the colored microsphere method in dogs which underwent a breaf (15 min) occlusion of the left anterior descending branch. (nii.ac.jp)
  • findings
  • The findings in this paper support previously reported data showing enhancement of ventricular function following aortocoronary saphenous vein grafting and provide a means for the serial evaluation of large numbers of patients by noninvasive techniques. (ahajournals.org)
  • RESULTS: The conventional echocardiographic parameters, with the exception of early peak mitral inflow velocity, the findings of pulsed wave TDI at the annular level, and regional ventricular function by VVI, were not significantly different between the two groups. (biomedsearch.com)
  • The goal of the present study was to determine whether this improvement in left ventricular function was accompanied by improvement in symptoms and/or the physical findings of CHF or by a reduction in hospitalizations for heart failure. (ahajournals.org)
  • hypertrophy
  • mice displayed normal cardiac function at baseline and in response to pressure overload-induced cardiac hypertrophy, suggesting that these proteins are not essential. (wikipedia.org)
  • A study investigating AARP function in cardiac muscle in which AARP was knocked out alone or in combination with the other MARPs showed that mice displayed normal cardiac function at baseline and in response to pressure overload-induced cardiac hypertrophy, suggesting that these proteins are not essential for normal cardiac development or in response to a hypertrophic stimulus. (wikipedia.org)
  • Sleep apnea is an under-recognized risk factor for heart failure Weight reduction - through physical activity and dietary modification, as obesity is a risk factor for heart failure and left ventricular hypertrophy. (wikipedia.org)
  • LCAD knockout mice displayed a higher level of cardiac hypertrophy, as indicated by increased left ventricular wall thickness and an increased about of metabolic cardiomyopathy. (wikipedia.org)
  • ventricle function
  • The aims of this review are to: 1) detect heterogeneous microinfarction using viability imaging, 2) characterize the consequences of distal coronary microembolization on left ventricle function and perfusion and 3) illustrate the progress of non-invasive imaging modalities in assessing distal coronary microembolization. (scirp.org)
  • Infusion of Ucn2 into rat hearts resulted in an immediate and significant improvement in left ventricle function, increased coronary flow, significantly altered intracellular calcium handling and increased SR calcium. (wikipedia.org)
  • heart's
  • Also, damage to the cytoskeletal framework of the heart causes the heart to enlarge, stretch or alter in shape, also decreasing the heart's systolic function or output. (wikipedia.org)
  • mitral valve
  • a.k.a. floppy mitral valve syndrome, systolic click murmur syndrome or billowing mitral leaflet) is a valvular heart disease characterized by the displacement of an abnormally thickened mitral valve leaflet into the left atrium during systole. (wikipedia.org)
  • Mitral valve prolapse is frequently associated with mild mitral regurgitation, where blood aberrantly flows from the left ventricle into the left atrium during systole. (wikipedia.org)
  • surgery
  • Weight reduction surgery is associated with substantial long term reduction in left ventricular mass. (ebscohost.com)
  • Less common causes include: previous treatment with radioactive iodine, injury to the hypothalamus or the anterior pituitary gland, certain medications, a lack of a functioning thyroid at birth, or previous thyroid surgery. (wikipedia.org)
