Ventricular pressure-volume curve indices change with end-diastolic pressure. (1/476)

Many indices have been proposed to describee the diastolic pressure-volume curve mathematically and permit quantification of the elastic properties of the myocardium itself in hopes that changes in the muscle caused by disease would b.e reflected in the diastolic pressure-volume curve. To date, none of the proposed indices has been shown convincingly to discriminate one group of patients from another. While this situation in part arises from the relatively large amount of noise introduced by the technical difficulties of measuring synchronous pressures and volumes during diastole in man, ther is a more fundamental difficulty. In practice, one can measure only a short segment of the entire pressure-volume curve, and the values of all diastolic pressure-volume curve parameters investigated change significantly when one uses different segments of the same pressure-volume curve to compute them. These results were derived from relatively noise-free pressure-volume curves obtained by filling nine excised dog left ventricles at a known rate and monitoring pressure-volume curve used to compute the parameter. Merely increasing measurement fidelity will not resolve this problem, because none of these parameters accurately characterizes the entire diastolic pressure-volume curbe from a segment like that which one can reasonably expect to obtain from humans.  (+info)

2,3,7,8-Tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin alters cardiovascular and craniofacial development and function in sac fry of rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss). (2/476)

Hallmark signs of 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD) toxicity in rainbow trout sac fry, are yolk sac edema, hemorrhage, craniofacial malformation, and growth retardation culminating in mortality. Our objective was to determine the role of cardiovascular dysfunction in the development of this toxicity. An embryotoxic TCDD dose (385 pg/g egg) caused a progressive reduction in blood flow in rainbow trout sac fry manifested first and most dramatically in the 1st and 2nd branchial arches and vessels perfusing the lower jaw. Blood flow was reduced later in the infraorbital artery and occipital vein of the head as well as segmental vessels and caudal vein of the trunk. Reduced perfusion occurred last in gill branchial arteries involved with oxygen uptake and the subintestinal vein and vitelline vein involved with nutrient uptake. Although heart rate throughout sac fry development was not affected, heart size at 50 days post-fertilization (dpf) was reduced far more than body weight or length, suggesting that the progressive circulatory failure caused by TCDD is associated with reduced cardiac output. Craniofacial development was arrested near hatch, giving rise to craniofacial malformations in which the jaws and anterior nasal structures were underdeveloped. Unlike the medaka embryo, in which TCDD causes apoptosis in the medial yolk vein, endothelial cell death was not observed in rainbow trout sac fry. These findings suggest a primary role for arrested heart development and reduced perfusion of tissues with blood in the early-life stage toxicity of TCDD in trout.  (+info)

Left ventricular function in chronic renal failure. (3/476)

Left ventricular function was studied in 14 patients with end-stage chronic renal failure using non-invasive methods (echocardiography and systolic time intervals). Patients were divided into 3 groups. Group 1 consisted of 5 patients who were normotensive at the time of study and group 2 of 7 patients who were hypertensive when studied. Group 3 consisted of 2 patients: one was receiving propranolol and the other, studied 302 days after renal transplantation, was receiving digitalis for recurrent episodes of cardiac failure. All except the patient receiving propranolol had normal left ventricular function in systole with normal measurements of fractional fibre shortening (% delta S, EF) and normal measurements relating to the velocity of ventricular contraction (mean Vcf, mean velocity of posterior wall motion). Stroke volume and cardiac output were normal in some patients but were increased in patients with fluid overload. Early diastolic compliance of the left ventricle seemed to be normal except in the patient with recurrent cardiac failure. The study provided no evidence for the existence of a specific uraemic cardiomyopathy.  (+info)

Fetal pulmonary venous flow into the left atrium relative to diastolic and systolic cardiac time intervals. (4/476)

OBJECTIVE: To establish the nature and gestational age dependency of the pulmonary venous flow velocity pattern into the left atrium relative to systolic and diastolic phases of the cardiac cycle. DESIGN: This was a cross-sectional study of Doppler measurements of fetal pulmonary venous inflow velocities, which were correlated with simultaneous recordings of transmitral and aortic flow velocity waveforms based on an equal cardiac cycle length (+/- 5%). RESULTS: Successful recordings were obtained in 28 out of 60 (47%) normal singleton pregnancies at 20-36 weeks of gestation. Reproducibility of waveform analysis of the various phases of the cardiac cycle was satisfactory, within-patient variance ranging between 1.7% and 6.5%. A statistically significant increase (p < 0.05) in pulmonary venous time average velocity and velocity integral with advancing gestational age was established. A statistically significant increase (p < 0.05) of the pulmonary flow velocity integral was also found when related to each of the systolic and diastolic segments of the cardiac cycle, with the exception of isovolemic relaxation time. The duration of each of the diastolic and systolic segments of the cardiac cycle, as well as the pulmonary venous velocity integral expressed as a percentage of the cardiac cycle, remained constant with advancing gestational age. CONCLUSIONS: The second half of pregnancy is characterized by pulmonary venous inflow into the left atrium throughout the cardiac cycle. Pulmonary venous inflow into the left atrium occurs predominantly during the filling and ejection phases of the cardiac cycle. Absolute cardiac diastolic and systolic time intervals as well as the percentage distribution of pulmonary venous flow velocity integrals between these cardiac time intervals remain unchanged with advancing gestational age.  (+info)

Familial predisposition of left ventricular hypertrophy. (5/476)

OBJECTIVES: The study evaluated the contribution of familial predisposition to the risk of left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH). BACKGROUND: Left ventricular hypertrophy is a multifactorial condition that serves as an important predictor of cardiovascular mortality. At present it is unclear whether familial predisposition contributes to the manifestation of LVH. Thus, we determined whether siblings of subjects with LVH are at increased risk to present with an elevation of LV mass or an abnormal LV geometry. METHODS: Echocardiographic and anthropometric measurements were performed in 2,293 individuals who participated in the echocardiographic substudies of population-based MONICA Augsburg surveys. In addition, a total of 319 siblings of survey participants with echocardiographic evidence of LVH were evaluated. The risk of these siblings to present with LVH or abnormal LV geometry was estimated by comparison with 636 subjects matched for gender and age that were selected from the entire echocardiography study base. RESULTS: Blood pressure, body mass index, age, and gender (i.e., known determinants of LV mass) were comparable in LVH-siblings and the matched comparison group. However, septal and posterior wall thicknesses, relative wall thickness as well as LV mass index were significantly elevated in LVH-siblings (p < 0.001, each) whereas LV dimensions did not differ. Likewise, the prevalence of LVH was raised in LVH-siblings, as was the relative risk of LVH after adjustment for confounders (p < 0.05). More specifically, LVH-siblings displayed increased prevalences of concentric remodeling and concentric LVH (p < 0.05) but not of eccentric LVH. CONCLUSIONS: Familial predisposition appears to contribute to increased LV wall thickness, to the development of LV hypertrophy and abnormal LV geometry.  (+info)

Role of cardiac structural and functional abnormalities in the pathogenesis of hyperdynamic circulation and renal sodium retention in cirrhosis. (6/476)

The aim of this study was to assess the relationship between subtle cardiovascular abnormalities and abnormal sodium handling in cirrhosis. A total of 35 biopsy-proven patients with cirrhosis with or without ascites and 14 age-matched controls underwent two-dimensional echocardiography and radionuclide angiography for assessment of cardiac volumes, structural changes and systolic and diastolic functions under strict metabolic conditions of a sodium intake of 22 mmol/day. Cardiac output, systemic vascular resistance and pressure/volume relationship (an index of cardiac contractility) were calculated. Eight controls and 14 patients with non-ascitic cirrhosis underwent repeat volume measurements and the pressure/volume relationship was re-evaluated after consuming a diet containing 200 mmol of sodium/day for 7 days. Ascitic cirrhotic patients had significant reductions in (i) cardiac pre-load (end diastolic volume 106+/-9 ml; P<0.05 compared with controls), due to relatively thicker left ventricular wall and septum (P<0.05); (ii) afterload (systemic vascular resistance 992+/-84 dyn.s.cm(-5); P<0. 05 compared with controls) due to systemic arterial vasodilatation; and (iii) reversal of the pressure/volume relationship, indicating contractility dysfunction. Increased cardiac output (6.12+/-0.45 litres/min; P<0.05 compared with controls) was due to a significantly increased heart rate. Pre-ascitic cirrhotic patients had contractile dysfunction, which was accentuated when challenged with a dietary sodium load, associated with renal sodium retention (urinary sodium excretion 162+/-12 mmol/day, compared with 197+/-12 mmol/day in controls; P<0.05). Cardiac output was maintained, since the pre-load was normal or increased, despite a mild degree of ventricular thickening, indicating some diastolic dysfunction. We conclude that: (i) contractile dysfunction is present in cirrhosis and is aggravated by a sodium load; (ii) an increased pre-load in the pre-ascitic patients compensates for the cardiac dysfunction; and (iii) in ascitic patients, a reduced afterload, manifested as systemic arterial vasodilatation, compensates for a reduced pre-load and contractile dysfunction. Cirrhotic cardiomyopathy may well play a pathogenic role in the complications of cirrhosis.  (+info)

Patterns of body fat deposition in youth and their relation to left ventricular markers of adverse cardiovascular prognosis. (7/476)

The patterns of body fat deposition in healthy youth and their relation to future development of cardiovascular disease remain incompletely understood. To further evaluate these patterns, we measured indirect indexes of central and general fat deposition in healthy adolescents (mean age 15.4+/-2.3 years) with family histories of hypertension. We examined the relation between these indexes and echocardiographic markers of adverse prognosis as well as the effect of gender and ethnicity. All 225 subjects (64% black and 48% female) had > or =1 biologic parent and 1 grandparent with hypertension. Skinfold thicknesses, waist-to-hip girth ratio, Quetelet index, Ponderal index, conicity, and Z score weight - Z score height were measured. Left ventricular (LV) mass, indexed LV mass, relative wall thickness (RWT), and midwall fractional shortening (MFS) were determined using echocardiography. In both black and white subjects, the adiposity indexes were significantly correlated with posterior wall thickness, total LV mass, and indexed LV mass (p <0.05 for all). Additionally, in black subjects, central adiposity was inversely related to MFS and directly related to RWT and septal thickness. General adiposity independently predicted indexed and nonindexed LV mass, whereas central adiposity predicted MFS and RWT. Compared with subjects with normal LV geometry, those with abnormal geometry were heavier and fatter based on every index of obesity (p <0.03 for all). Thus, indexes of fat deposition are significantly correlated with LV markers of adverse prognosis in healthy youth.  (+info)

Changes in left ventricular filling and left atrial function six months after nonsurgical septal reduction therapy for hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy. (8/476)

OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study was to evaluate changes in left ventricular (LV) filling, left atrial (LA) volumes and function six months after nonsurgical septal reduction therapy (NSRT) for hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy (HOCM). BACKGROUND: Patients with HOCM frequently have enlarged left atria, which predisposes them to atrial fibrillation. Nonsurgical septal reduction therapy results in significant reduction in left ventricular outflow tract (LVOT) obstruction and symptomatic improvement. However, its effect on LV passive filling volume, LA volumes and function is not yet known. METHODS: Thirty patients with HOCM underwent treadmill exercise testing as well as 2-dimensional and Doppler echocardiography before and six months after NSRT. Data included clinical status, exercise duration, LVOT gradient, mitral regurgitant (MR) volume, LV pre-A pressure and LA volumes. Left atrial ejection force and kinetic energy (KE) were computed noninvasively and were compared with 12 age-matched, normal subjects. RESULTS: New York Heart Association (NYHA) class was lower and exercise duration was longer (p < 0.05) six months after NSRT. The LVOT gradient, MR volume and LV pre-A pressure were all significantly reduced. HOCM patients had larger atria, which had a higher ejection force and KE, compared with normal subjects (p < 0.01). After NSRT, LV passive filling volume increased (p < 0.01), whereas LA volumes, ejection force and KE decreased (p < 0.01). Reduction in LA maximal volume was positively related to changes in LV pre-A pressure (r = 0.8, p < 0.05) and MR volume (0.4, p < 0.05). Changes in LA ejection force were positively related to changes in LA pre-A volume (r = 0.7, p < 0.01) and KE (r = 0.81, p < 0.01). The increase in exercise duration paralleled the increase in LV passive filling volume (r = 0.85, p < 0.05). CONCLUSIONS: Nonsurgical septal reduction therapy results in an increase in LV passive filling volume and a reduction in LA size, ejection force and KE.  (+info)

PURPOSE: To compare cardiac cine MR imaging using steady state free precession (SSFP) and fast low angle shot (FLASH) techniques at 1.5 and 3 T, and to establish their variabilities and reproducibilities for cardiac volume and mass determination in volunteers. To assess the feasibility of SSFP imaging in patients at 3 T and to determine comparability to volume data acquired at 1.5 T. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Ten healthy volunteers underwent cardiac magnetic resonance imaging using SSFP and segmented gradient-echo FLASH, using both a 1.5 and a 3 T MR system on the same day. Ten patients with impaired left ventricular (LV) function were also studied at both field strengths with SSFP. RESULTS: For both SSFP and FLASH, field strength had no effect on the quantification of LV and right ventricular (RV) volumes, mass, or function (P | or = 0.05 for field strength for all parameters). At both 1.5 and 3 T, SSFP yielded smaller LV mass (e.g., at 3 T 109 +/- 30 g vs. 142 +/- 37 g; P = 0.011) and larger LV volume (e

N2 - Continuous ventricular volume measurement by the conductance method assumes a homogeneous electrical field dispersed throughout and contained within the ventricle. Because of dense trabeculation and complex geometry, right ventricular (RV) volume description by this method may be seriously compromised. This study sought to determine the accuracy and limitations of RV volume measurement by conductance, with magnetic resonance (MR) imaging (MRI) used as a reference, in the porcine RV.

The paper describes an experimental activity on the spatial and temporal liquid- and vapor-phase distributions of diesel fuel at engine-like conditions. The influence of the k-factor (0 and 1.5) of a single-hole axial-disposed injector (0.100 mm diameter and 10 L/d ratio) has been studied by spraying fuel in an optically-accessible constant-volume combustion vessel. A high-speed imaging system, capable of acquiring Mie-scattering and Schlieren images in a near simultaneous fashion mode along the same line of sight, has been developed at the Michigan Technological University using a high-speed camera and a pulsed-wave LED system. The time resolved pair of schlieren and Mie-scattering images identifies the instantaneous position of both the vapor and liquid phases of the fuel spray, respectively. The studies have been performed at three injection pressures (70, 120 and 180 MPa), 23.9 kg/m3 ambient gas density and 900 K gas temperature in the vessel ...

Left heart volumes were determined angiographically in 50 subjects of whom 18 had no abnormality of the left heart, 12 had lesions causing pressure overload of the left ventricle, and 20 had lesions causing volume overload of the left ventricle. The left heart volumes were in the normal range in the presence of pressure overload, but, with volume overload, end-diastolic, end-systolic, and atrial volumes were in excess of normal. A linear relationship was demonstrated between end-diastolic and end-systolic volumes, regardless of the pressure load on the ventricle. Thus, for all but one of the cases studied, total left ventricular ejection volume formed a nearly constant proportion of end-diastolic volume.. ...
Measurement of acute serial changes in left ventricular volume is often desirable. Although left ventricular volumes estimated echocardiographically correlate well with results of angiographic methods, the sensitivity with which echocardiography can detect acute alterations in volume is unknown. Accordingly, the effect on transverse left ventricular dimension of interventions known to alter left ventricular volume (tilting and administration of nitroglycerin and phenylephrine) was studied in six normal subjects. Tilting significantly reduced end-diastolic dimension (from 48 ± 1.7 to 41.8 ± 1.5 mm, P , .01) and end-systolic dimension (from 32.2 ± 0.6 to 27.5 ± 0.8 mm, P , .001). Nitroglycerin also reduced end-diastolic dimension (from 44.8 ± 2.3 to 39.8 ± 2.1 mm, P , .02) and end-systolic dimension (from 30.2 ± 1.3 to 26.5 ± 1.2, P , .005). In contrast, phenylephrine increased end-diastolic dimension (from 42.3 ± 2.6 to 45.6 ± 2.6 mm, P , .025) but did not significantly alter ...

Experimental characterization of the burning behavior of gaseous mixtures has been carried out, analyzing spherical expanding flames. Tests were performed in the Device for Hydrogen-Air Reaction Mode Analysis (DHARMA) laboratory of Istituto Motori-CNR. Based on a high-pressure, constant-volume bomb, the activity is aimed at populating a systematic database on the burning properties of CH4, H2 and other species of interest, in conditions typical of internal combustion (i.c.) engines and gas turbines. High-speed shadowgraph is used to record the flame growth, allowing to infer the laminar burning parameters and the flame stability properties. Mixtures of CH4, H2 and air have been analyzed at initial temperature 293÷305 K, initial pressure 3÷18 bar and equivalence ratio = 1.0. The amount of H2 in the mixture was 0%, 20% and 30% (vol.). The effect of the initial pressure and of the Hydrogen content on the laminar burning velocity and the Markstein length has been evaluated: the relative weight and mutual
We report the first comparison of cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging (CMR) at 1.5T, 3T and 7T field strengths using steady state free precession (SSFP) and fast low angle shot (FLASH) cine sequences. Cardiac volumes and mass measurements were assessed for feasibility, reproducibility and validity at each given field strength using FLASH and SSFP sequences. Ten healthy volunteers underwent retrospectively electrocardiogram (ECG) gated CMR at 1.5T, 3T and 7T using FLASH and SSFP sequences. B1 and B0 shimming and frequency scouts were used to optimise image quality. Cardiac volume and mass measurements were not significantly affected by field strength when using the same imaging sequence (P|0.05 for all parameters at 1.5T, 3T and 7T). SSFP imaging returned larger end diastolic and end systolic volumes and smaller left ventricular masses than FLASH imaging at 7T, and at the lower field strengths (P|0.05 for each parameter). However, univariate general linear model analysis with fixed effects for
Cardiac tamponade arises due to equalisation of cardiac pressures leading to impaired biventricular filling. The pericardial sack has some elasticity which is quickly reached with fluid accumulation. Cardiac volume becomes smaller during systole and venous return shifts to cardiac systole to reduce cardiac output. Normally, systemic venous return to the right side of the heart increases with inspiration and pulmonary venous return to the left heart decreases with inspiration so that systemic arterial pressure normally falls by ,10 mmHg during inspiration.. In cardiac tamponade, the rigid pericardium prevents the free wall from expanding. Thus, the distension of the right ventricle is limited to the interventricular septum and this causes the septum to bulge to the left, reducing left ventricular compliance and contributing to further decreased filling of the left ventricle during inspiration. This leads to an exaggerated drop in systolic blood pressure in inspiration called pulsus paradoxus. Our ...
Cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging (CMR), sometimes known as cardiac MRI, is a medical imaging technology for the non-invasive assessment of the function and structure of the cardiovascular system. It is derived from and based on the same basic principles as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) but with optimization for use in the cardiovascular system. These optimizations are principally in the use of ECG gating and rapid imaging techniques or sequences. By combining a variety of such techniques into protocols, key functional and morphological features of the cardiovascular system can be assessed. In the investigation of cardiovascular disease the physician has a wide variety of tools available. The key disadvantages of CMR are limited availability, expense, and special skills/technical training needed to perform CMR (vs other types of MRI). New volumetric acquisitions can shorten and simplify the scan as they can replace several sequences, acquiring the entire cardiac volume at once. The ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Intracardiac echocardiographic measurement of left ventricular volume. AU - Ding, C.. AU - Rao, L.. AU - Nagueh, Sherif. AU - Khoury, D. S.. PY - 2004/12/1. Y1 - 2004/12/1. N2 - We tested the utility of intracardiac echocardiography (ICE) in measuring left ventricular (LV) volume. In 4 normal dogs, a 10-F percutaneous sheath was placed inside the LV along its major axis. An ICE catheter (9 F, 9 MHz) was then inserted through the sheath into the LV. The ICE catheter was pulled back in 1-mm intervals starting from the apex, and 2-D tomographic images were continuously acquired. Subsequently, the ICE catheter was replaced in the LV by a conductance catheter to measure single-beat volume signals. Stroke volume was determined by thermodilution for validation. All measurements were made in each dog while pacing the atrium at two different cycle lengths (range=300-500 ms).

The value of the end systolic volume depends on the arterial blood pressure as well as on the force of ventricular contraction. The arterial blood pressure - especially in the large arteries leaving the heart - is not only pressure outwards against the arterial walls but also back pressure against the aortic valve and the pulmonary valve exerted by the arterial blood. An increased arterial blood pressure results in higher end systolic volume because of more afterload (more resistance to the outflow of blood from the ventricles). Contractility of the ventricular muscle can increase (e.g. from increased stimulation of the heart by the sympathetic nervous system), thereby causing more complete ejection of blood from the ventricle and a resultant lower end systolic volume. ...
The paper describes an experimental activity on the spatial and temporal liquid- and vapor-phase distributions of diesel fuel at engine-like conditions. The influence of the k-factor (0 and 1.5) of a single-hole axial-disposed injector (0.100 mm diameter and 10 L/d ratio) has been studied by spraying fuel in an optically-accessible constant-volume combustion vessel.A high-speed imaging system, capable of acquiring Mie-scattering and Schlieren images in a near simultaneous fashion mode along the same line of sight, has been developed at the Michigan Technological University using a high-speed camera and a pulsed-wave LED system. The time resolved pair of schlieren and Mie-scattering images identifies the instantaneous position of both the vapor and liquid phases of the fuel spray, respectively. The studies have been performed at three injection pressures (70, 120 and 180 MPa), 23.9 kg/m3 ambient gas density and 900 K gas temperature in the vessel. A pre-combustion of reactants filling the vessel ...

Real-time three-dimensional echocardiography for determining right ventricular stroke volume in an animal model of chronic right ventricular volume overload.
In the present study, the right ventricles of 10 Beagle dogs were investigated by means of 3DE and CCT in comparison with the reference method CMRI. The major challenge for determining right ventricular volume is the right ventricle itself. The complex shape with its segmentation in body, inflow and outflow tract, the thin RV wall and the heavy trabeculation make the RV measurement in two-dimensional echocardiography difficult [6]. CMRI is the gold standard for RV volumetric quantification in human medicine [18] and overcomes the limitation of 2D echocardiography by using a three-dimensional volume set, as well as the 3D modalities 3DE and CCT. Although the assessment of left ventricular function using two- and three-dimensional volume estimation is part of various veterinary publications [27]-[30], there are to the best knowledge of the author no veterinary studies concerning the evaluation of right ventricular function either by means of two-dimensional volume calculation or even ...
We postulated that changes in cardiac high-energy phosphate metabolism may underlie the myocardial dysfunction caused by hypobaric hypoxia. Healthy volunteers (n=14) were studied immediately before, and within 4 d of return from, a 17-d trek to Mt. Everest Base Camp (5300 m). (31)P magnetic resonance (MR) spectroscopy was used to measure cardiac phosphocreatine (PCr)/ATP, and MR imaging and echocardiography were used to assess cardiac volumes, mass, and function. Immediately after returning from Mt. Everest, total body weight had fallen by 3% (P|0.05), but left ventricular mass, adjusted for changes in body surface area, had disproportionately decreased by 11% (P|0.05). Alterations in diastolic function were also observed, with a reduction in peak left ventricular filling rates and mitral inflow E/A, by 17% (P|0.05) and 24% (P|0.01), respectively, with no change in hydration status. Compared with pretrek, cardiac PCr/ATP ratio had decreased by 18% (P|0.01). Whether the abnormalities were even greater at
We examined possible age- and gender-specific differences in the function and mass of left (LV) and right (RV) ventricles in 36 healthy volunteers using cine gradient-recalled echo magnetic resonance imaging. Subjects were divided into four groups (nine men and nine women in each): men aged under 45 years (32 +/- 7), women aged under 45 (27 +/- 6), men aged over 45 (59 +/- 8), and women aged over 45 (57 +/- 9). Functional analysis of cardiac volume and mass and of LV wall motion was performed by manual segmentation of the endocardial and epicardial borders of the end-diastolic and end-systolic frame; both absolute and normalized (per square meter body surface area) values were evaluated. With age there was a significant decrease in both absolute and normalized LV and RV chamber volumes (EDV, ESV), while LV and RV masses remained unchanged. Gender-specific differences were found in cardiac mass and volume (for men and women, respectively: LV mass, 155 +/- 18 and 110 +/- 16 g; LV EDV, 118 +/- 27 and 96 +/

N2 - The aim of this study was to examine the difference in the myocardial volume between end-diastole and end-systole in 24 human volunteers, using steady-state free precession gradient-echo cine imaging of both long- and short-axis views of the left ventricle and a newly developed three-dimensional (3D) analysis method. In addition, we examined retrospectively the cine magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) studies from 20 of the subjects that included a stack of short-axis views, from base to apex, suitable for a standard two-dimensional (2D) analysis. With the 3D analysis method, no significant variance in the myocardial volume was found (mean difference=0.1%±9.1%, p=0.88) between end-diastole (ED) and end-systole (ES), while the 2D technique yielded significantly larger values for the LV ...
LONDON - In the past year, total sales of heart failure (HF) therapeutics across the 7 major markets (including Japan, the US and 5EU) were estimated at around USD 3.2 billion. This figure is predicted to increase in the years to come, registering a 13.5% CAGR. By 2025, total heart failure therapeutics sales across 7MM are likely to touch USD 11.5 billion.. Meantime, the chronic heart failure therapeutics market across 7MM is expected to increase from USD 3.1 billion in the previous year up to USD 10.1 billion by 2025, posting a CAGR of 12.7%. In 2015, the US dominated the chronic heart failure therapies market, accounting for a share of over 60% of total sales. The uptake of Novartis Entresto is anticipated to perform as a strong driver of the chronic heart failure and also total heart failure markets in the 7MM; in 2022 it will likely reach peak sales worth of USD 5.9 billion.. The acute heart failure therapeutics market is expected to grow from USD 188.1 million in the past year to around ...
By combining conventional methods for recording pressures from the left ventricle and pleural cavity with a new procedure for estimating end-diastolic volume (EDV) and end-systolic volume (ESV) of the left ventricle it was found in the closed-chest dog that plethora increased EDV, ESV and stroke volume while hemorrhage had the opposite effect. There were linear relationships between EDV and ESV, and between EDV and stroke volume. There was little change in left ventricular effective end-diastolic pressure when the EDV changed over a wide range, beginning with the smallest EDV consistent with life; but after a certain large EDV had been reached, large increases in effective end-diastolic pressure were associated with little or no further increase in EDV.. ...

BACKGROUND: Whether the myocardium in nonischemic heart failure experiences oxygen limitation remains a long-standing controversy. We addressed this question in patients with dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) using a dual approach. First, we tested the changes in myocardial oxygenation between rest and stress states, using oxygenation-sensitive cardiovascular magnetic resonance. Second, we sought to assess the functional consequences of oxygen limitation at rest by measuring myocardial energetics before and after short-term oxygen supplementation. METHODS AND RESULTS: Twenty-six subjects (14 DCM and 12 normal) underwent cardiac magnetic resonance imaging at 3 Tesla to assess cardiac volumes, function, oxygenation, and first-pass perfusion (0.03 mmol/kg Gd-DTPA bolus) at stress and rest (4-6 minutes IV adenosine, 140 μg/kg per minute). Signal intensity change (SIΔ) and myocardial perfusion reserve index (MPRI) were measured from oxygenation and perfusion images, respectively. Furthermore, the effect of
The assessment of left ventricular (LV) volume and ejection fraction (EF) is vital to the practice of cardiology. These measures are used to inform prognosis in most cardiac patient populations, determine treatment decisions for a variety of therapies, and function as eligibility criteria in many clinical trials (1-5). Despite their importance, there is no consensus on the best method to routinely measure EF and volumes.. Two-dimensional echocardiography (2DE) is the most ubiquitous tool for assessing LV size and systolic function. Measurement of EF is the most common reason for referring a patient for an echocardiogram (6). This test is noninvasive, portable, inexpensive, radiation free, and quick. It does not, however, provide reliable, reproducible, and accurate measures of EF or volumes (7). Traditionally, 2DE has used the method of disks to calculate LV volumes based on areas in only 2 imaging planes (6). This method is subject to errors due to foreshortening, poor endocardial definition, ...
In 10 normal dogs, the right and left ventricular volumes and compliances were determined in the fresh post-mortem heart. With the use of a SigmaMotor pump, Ringers solution at 23°C was simultaneously infused into both ventricles within an hour after death. When the ventricles were full but open to atmospheric pressure, the mean volumes were 35.8 ml/m2 for the right and 23.1 ml/m2 for the left ventricle; when the transmural pressure was increased by 10 mm Hg, the mean volumes were 56.9 ml/m2 for the right and 41.9 ml/m2 for the left ventricle; at 20 mm Hg, the values were 60.8 and 48.5 ml/m2, respectively. The initial volumes and the increases in volume produced by increase in transmural pressure were affected by the position of the ventricular septum and by the presence of rigor mortis. With infusions into only one ventricle, right and left ventricular volumes were 20 to 74% greater at 10 mm Hg than the values when both ventricles were filled simultaneously. Compliance began to decrease 40 to ...
ABSTRACT: Ventricular pressure-volume area (PVA) is a specific area in the pressure-volume diagram, which represents the total mechanical energy generated by each contraction, consisting of stroke work and mechanical potential energy at end-systole. Animal experiments have shown that PVA is correlated linearly with the ventricular oxygen consumption (Vo2) per beat under a variety of loading conditions in a stable contractile state. The slope of the Vo2-PVA line has been shown to remain constant in different contractile states, implying a constant stoichiometry between Vo2 and PVA. As a first step to understand the nature of this Vo2-PVA relation, we devised a new crossbridge (CB) model to theoretically relate PVA with the total enthalpy change associated with the ATP hydrolysis for all CB cycles. One of the most important assumptions on which this model analysis depended was that the time-varying elasticity model could simulate the instantaneous pressure-volume relation. The result of this ...

In the professional opinion of one person who I was reading the confusion on the subject of kettlebells vs. dumbbells comes from a lack of proper instruction regarding how to practice with kettlebells. As a direct result many people make the critical mistake of attempting to use kettlebells as if they were traditional weights.. Traditional weight lifting is what is single-plane static. This refers to how your body is in a fixed position while moving weight towards and away from you in a linear manner through a direct line of applied force. All the while attempting not to use any momentum and targeting an isolated muscle or muscle group. Whats more traditional weight lifting builds muscles differently. Generally speaking the goal of bodybuilding is muscle hypertrophy meaning an increase in muscle size. Unfortunately most people associate size with strength. What most people do not know is that 50-70-percent of hypertrophy size is from fluid called Sarcoplasm. Sarcoplasmic Volume accounts for ...
