Phasic right coronary artery blood flow in conscious dogs with normal and elevated right ventricular pressures. (1/10358)

We studied phasic right coronary blood flow in well trained normal dogs and dogs with pulmonic stenosis. We installed electromagnetic flow transducers and pressure tubes under anesthesia to monitor right coronary blood flow, cardiac output, central aortic blood pressure, and right ventribular pressure. In normotensive dogs, systolic flow amplitude equaled early diastolic flow levels. The ratio of systolic to diastolic flow at rest was substantially greater in the right coronary bed (36+/-1.3%) than in the left circumflex bed (13+/-3.6%). Right diastolid flow runoff, including the cove late in diastole, resembled left circumflex runoff. Blood flow to the normotensive right (37+/-1.1 ml/min 100(-1) g) and the left (35+/-1.0 ml/min(-1) g) ventricular myocardium indicated equal perfusion of both cardiac walls. Throttling of systolic flow was related directly to the right ventricular systolic pressure level in the dogs with pulmonic stenosis. Retrograde systolic flow occurred in severe right ventricular hypertension. The late diastolic runoff pattern in dogs with pulmonic stenosis appeared the same as for the normotensive dogs. We obtained systolic to diastolic flow ratios of 1/3 the value of normotensive hearts in high and severe pulmonic hypertension. Electrocardiograms and studies of pathology suggested restricted blood flow to the inner layers of the right myocardium in the dogs with severe and high right ventricular hypertension. Normotensive and hypertensive peak hyperemic flow responses were similar, except for an increased magnitude of diastolic flow, with proportionately less systolic flow in hypertensive states.  (+info)

Regulation of chamber-specific gene expression in the developing heart by Irx4. (2/10358)

The vertebrate heart consists of two types of chambers, the atria and the ventricles, which differ in their contractile and electrophysiological properties. Little is known of the molecular mechanisms by which these chambers are specified during embryogenesis. Here a chicken iroquois-related homeobox gene, Irx4, was identified that has a ventricle-restricted expression pattern at all stages of heart development. Irx4 protein was shown to regulate the chamber-specific expression of myosin isoforms by activating the expression of the ventricle myosin heavy chain-1 (VMHC1) and suppressing the expression of the atrial myosin heavy chain-1 (AMHC1) in the ventricles. Thus, Irx4 may play a critical role in establishing chamber-specific gene expression in the developing heart.  (+info)

Insulin-like growth factor-1 induces Mdm2 and down-regulates p53, attenuating the myocyte renin-angiotensin system and stretch-mediated apoptosis. (3/10358)

Insulin-like growth factor (IGF)-1 inhibits apoptosis, but its mechanism is unknown. Myocyte stretching activates p53 and p53-dependent genes, leading to the formation of angiotensin II (Ang II) and apoptosis. Therefore, this in vitro system was used to determine whether IGF-1 interfered with p53 function and the local renin-angiotensin system (RAS), decreasing stretch-induced cell death. A single dose of 200 ng/ml IGF-1 at the time of stretching decreased myocyte apoptosis 43% and 61% at 6 and 20 hours. Ang II concentration was reduced 52% at 20 hours. Additionally, p53 DNA binding to angiotensinogen (Aogen), AT1 receptor, and Bax was markedly down-regulated by IGF-1 via the induction of Mdm2 and the formation of Mdm2-p53 complexes. Concurrently, the quantity of p53, Aogen, renin, AT1 receptor, and Bax was reduced in stretched myocytes exposed to IGF-1. Conversely, Bcl-2 and the Bcl-2-to-Bax protein ratio increased. The effects of IGF-1 on cell death, Ang II synthesis, and Bax protein were the consequence of Mdm2-induced down-regulation of p53 function. In conclusion, the anti-apoptotic impact of IGF-1 on stretched myocytes was mediated by its capacity to depress p53 transcriptional activity, which limited Ang II formation and attenuated the susceptibility of myocytes to trigger their endogenous cell death pathway.  (+info)

Adenoviral gene transfer of the human V2 vasopressin receptor improves contractile force of rat cardiomyocytes. (4/10358)

BACKGROUND: In congestive heart failure, high systemic levels of the hormone arginine vasopressin (AVP) result in vasoconstriction and reduced cardiac contractility. These effects are mediated by the V1 vasopressin receptor (V1R) coupled to phospholipase C beta-isoforms. The V2 vasopressin receptor (V2R), which promotes activation of the Gs/adenylyl cyclase system, is physiologically expressed in the kidney but not in the myocardium. Expression of a recombinant V2R (rV2R) in the myocardium could result in a positive inotropic effect via the endogenous high concentrations of AVP in heart failure. METHODS AND RESULTS: A recombinant adenovirus encoding the human V2R (Ad-V2R) was tested for its ability to modulate the cardiac Gs/adenylyl cyclase system and to potentiate contractile force in rat ventricular cardiomyocytes and in H9c2 cardiomyoblasts. Ad-V2R infection resulted in a virus concentration-dependent expression of the transgene and led to a marked increase in cAMP formation in rV2R-expressing cardiomyocytes after exposure to AVP. Single-cell shortening measurements showed a significant agonist-induced contraction amplitude enhancement, which was blocked by the V2R antagonist, SR 121463A. Pretreatment of Ad-V2R-infected cardiomyocytes with AVP led to desensitization of the rV2R after short-term agonist exposure but did not lead to further loss of receptor function or density after long-term agonist incubation, thus demonstrating resistance of the rV2R to downregulation. CONCLUSIONS: Adenoviral gene transfer of the V2R in cardiomyocytes can modulate the endogenous adenylyl cyclase-signal transduction cascade and can potentiate contraction amplitude in cardiomyocytes. Heterologous expression of cAMP-forming receptors in the myocardium could lead to novel strategies in congestive heart failure by bypassing the desensitized beta-adrenergic receptor signaling.  (+info)

An inhibitor of p38 mitogen-activated protein kinase protects neonatal cardiac myocytes from ischemia. (5/10358)

Cellular ischemia results in activation of a number of kinases, including p38 mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK); however, it is not yet clear whether p38 MAPK activation plays a role in cellular damage or is part of a protective response against ischemia. We have developed a model to study ischemia in cultured neonatal rat cardiac myocytes. In this model, two distinct phases of p38 MAPK activation were observed during ischemia. The first phase began within 10 min and lasted less than 1 h, and the second began after 2 h and lasted throughout the ischemic period. Similar to previous studies using in vivo models, the nonspecific activator of p38 MAPK and c-Jun NH2-terminal kinase, anisomycin, protected cardiac myocytes from ischemic injury, decreasing the release of cytosolic lactate dehydrogenase by approximately 25%. We demonstrated, however, that a selective inhibitor of p38 MAPK, SB 203580, also protected cardiac myocytes against extended ischemia in a dose-dependent manner. The protective effect was seen even when the inhibitor was present during only the second, sustained phase of p38 MAPK activation. We found that ischemia induced apoptosis in neonatal rat cardiac myocytes and that SB 203580 reduced activation of caspase-3, a key event in apoptosis. These results suggest that p38 MAPK induces apoptosis during ischemia in cardiac myocytes and that selective inhibition of p38 MAPK could be developed as a potential therapy for ischemic heart disease.  (+info)

Taurine modulates I(Kr) but I(Ks) in guinea-pig ventricular cardiomyocytes. (6/10358)

1. Effects of taurine on the delayed rectifier K+ current (I(K)) in isolated guinea-pig ventricular cardiomyocytes were examined at different intracellular Ca2+ concentration ([Ca2+]i), using whole-cell voltage and current clamp techniques. Experiments were performed at 36 degrees C. 2. Addition of taurine (10-20 mM) decreased the action potential duration (APD) at pCa 8, but increased the APD at pCa 6. Taurine (20 mM) enhanced I(K) at 70 mV by 22.4 +/- 3.1% (n = 6, P < 0.01) at pCa 8, whereas taurine inhibited the I(K) by 27.1 +/- 2.7% (n = 6, P < 0.01) at pCa 6. These responses behaved in a concentration-dependent manner. 3. The I(K) is composed of the rapid and slow components (I(Kr) and I(Ks)). When [Ca2+]i was pCa 6, taurine at 20 mM reduced the tail current of I(Kr) at 70 mV by 16.5 +/- 2.7% (n = 5, P < 0.05) and that of I(Ks) at 70 mV by 27.1 +/- 2.8% (n = 6, P < 0.01). In contrast, at pCa 8, the tail currents of I(Kr) and I(Ks) at 70 mV were enhanced by 13.4 +/- 3.2% (n = 7, P < 0.05) and by 22.4 +/- 3.1% (n = 7, P < 0.01), respectively. The voltages of half-maximum activation (V1/2) for I(Kr) and I(Ks) were not modified by taurine. 4. Addition of E-4031 (5 microM) to taurine had a complete blockade of the tail current of I(Kr), but not I(Ks). The remained tail current (I(Ks)) in the presence of E-4031 (5 microM) was not affected by taurine (20 mM), but was blocked by 293B (30 microM). 5. These results indicate that taurine modulates I(Kr) but not I(Ks), depending on [Ca2+]i, resulting in regulation of the APD.  (+info)

A comparison of an A1 adenosine receptor agonist (CVT-510) with diltiazem for slowing of AV nodal conduction in guinea-pig. (7/10358)

1. The purpose of this study was to compare the pharmacological properties (i.e. the AV nodal depressant, vasodilator, and inotropic effects) of two AV nodal blocking agents belonging to different drug classes; a novel A1 adenosine receptor (A1 receptor) agonist, N-(3(R)-tetrahydrofuranyl)-6-aminopurine riboside (CVT-510), and the prototypical calcium channel blocker diltiazem. 2. In the atrial-paced isolated heart, CVT-510 was approximately 5 fold more potent to prolong the stimulus-to-His bundle (S-H interval), a measure of slowing AV nodal conduction (EC50 = 41 nM) than to increase coronary conductance (EC50 = 200 nM). At concentrations of CVT-510 (40 nM) and diltiazem (1 microM) that caused equal prolongation of S-H interval (approximately 10 ms), diltiazem, but not CVT-510, significantly reduced left ventricular developed pressure (LVP) and markedly increased coronary conductance. CVT-510 shortened atrial (EC50 = 73 nM) but not the ventricular monophasic action potentials (MAP). 3. In atrial-paced anaesthetized guinea-pigs, intravenous infusions of CVT-510 and diltiazem caused nearly equal prolongations of P-R interval. However, diltiazem, but not CVT-510, significantly reduced mean arterial blood pressure. 4. Both CVT-510 and diltiazem prolonged S-H interval, i.e., slowed AV nodal conduction. However, the A1 receptor-selective agonist CVT-510 did so without causing the negative inotropic, vasodilator, and hypotensive effects associated with diltiazem. Because CVT-510 did not affect the ventricular action potential, it is unlikely that this agonist will have a proarrythmic action in ventricular myocardium.  (+info)

Effects of tumour necrosis factor-alpha on left ventricular function in the rat isolated perfused heart: possible mechanisms for a decline in cardiac function. (8/10358)

1. The cardiac depressant actions of TNF were investigated in the isolated perfused rat heart under constant flow (10 ml min(-1)) and constant pressure (70 mmHg) conditions, using a recirculating (50 ml) mode of perfusion. 2. Under constant flow conditions TNF (20 ng ml(-1)) caused an early (< 25 min) decrease in left ventricular developed pressure (LVDP), which was maintained for 90 min (LVDP after 90 min: control vs TNF; 110 +/- 4 vs 82 +/- 10 mmHg, P < 0.01). 3. The depression in cardiac function seen with TNF under constant flow conditions, was blocked by the ceramidase inhibitor N-oleoylethanolamine (NOE), 1 microM, (LVDP after 90 min: TNF vs TNF with NOE; 82 +/- 10 vs 11 +/- 5 mmHg, P < 0.05). 4. In hearts perfused at constant pressure, TNF caused a decrease in coronary flow rate (change in flow 20 min after TNF: control vs TNF; -3.0 +/- 0.9 vs -8.7 +/- 1.2 ml min(-1), P < 0.01). This was paralleled by a negative inotropic effect (change in LVDP 20 min after TNF: control vs TNF; -17 +/- 7 vs -46 +/- 6 mmHg, P < 0.01). The decline in function was more rapid and more severe than that seen under conditions of constant flow. 5. These data indicate that cardiac function can be disrupted by TNF on two levels, firstly via a direct, ceramidase dependant negative inotropic effect, and secondly via an indirect coronary vasoconstriction.  (+info)

Double-chambered right ventricle was diagnosed in two dogs, one of them a pup and the other full grown. Both dogs underwent surgery using the novel approach of right ventricular outflow chamber ventriculotomy via left intercostal thoracotomy with moderate hypothermia and moderate pump flow cardiopulmonary bypass under beating heart. No major complication occurred during and after the operation. On continuous wave Doppler echocardiography, the pressure gradient across the stenosis in the right ventricle decreased from 130 mmHg pre-operatively to 40 mmHg post-operatively at 1 year 5 months in the adult dog, and from 209 mmHg pre-operatively to 47 mmHg post-operatively at 1 year in the pup. Both dogs are active without clinical signs ...

left vs right ventricle of heart Apr 24, 2011 Left Ventricle vs Right Ventricle. The heart has several parts in it. This would include the left and right atrium and the left and right ventricle. Both of the left and right ventricles have a particular difference when it comes to their functions. The ventricles are the two lower chambers of the heart. left vs right ventricle of heart The left ventricle has very thick myocardium and wall whereas correct ventricle has thinner myocardium and wall. Right ventricle has lower pressure system. Left ventricle produces four to six situations as so much pressure than correct. Right ventricle receives deoxygenated blood from the correct atrium by means of the tricuspid valve. Jan 13, 2016 Mechanisms Underlying Left Ventricle versus Right Ventricle Differences.

AU - Ghersin, Eduard. AU - Abadi, Sobhi. AU - Yalonetsky, Sergey. PY - 2008. Y1 - 2008. N2 - Background: Multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) is useful for assessing left ventricular (LV) volumes and function. Validation has mainly been carried out using Simpsons method of summing up consecutive short-axis areas. Because the latter method is time-consuming, many users prefer using a quicker method, based on a single view or a pair of views. Objectives: To evaluate the accuracy of the long-axis area-length method (AL), which has not been validated for MDCT, using Simpsons method as the gold standard, as well as right anterior oblique LV angiography as a clinical standard. Methods: Twenty-three patients admitted with acute chest pain were clinically evaluated with electrocardiogram-gated MDCT and ...

Myocardial function can be evaluated using color-coded tissue velocity imaging (TVI) to analyze the longitudinal myocardial velocity profile, and by expressing the motion of the atrioventricular plane during a cardiac cycle as coordinated events in the cardiac state diagram (CSD). The objective of this study was to establish gestational age specific reference values for fetal TVI measurements and to introduce the CSD as a potential aid in fetal myocardial evaluation. TVI recordings from 125 healthy fetuses, at 18 to 42 weeks of gestation, were performed with the transducer perpendicular to the apex to provide a four-chamber view. The myocardial velocity data was extracted from the basal segment of septum as well as the left and right ventricular free wall for subsequent offline analysis. During a cardiac cycle the longitudinal peak velocities of septum increased with gestational age, as did the peak velocities of the left and right ventricular free wall, except for the peak velocity of post ejection.
Scaling left ventricular (LV) mass and other cardiac dimensions to account for individual body size is important. The traditional method of simple ratio scaling using, for example, body surface area (BSA) assumes a linear and proportional relationship and accurate measurement of both LV mass and BSA. These assumptions can be questioned; hence, we examined the appropriateness of methods and different indices using highly accurate magnetic resonance imaging scans. Cardiac and whole-body scans were performed in 172 young, healthy, male subjects (age range, 17-28 years) to assess LV mass, volume, linear dimensions, lean body mass and fat mass. Height, body mass and BSA were determined anthropometrically. Relationships were examined for linearity and closeness of fit using log-log least-squares linear regression to determine the slope exponent b (where 1.0 indicates linearity). The relationship between LV mass and lean body mass (b=.90+/-.15; r(2)=.66) was linear and geometrically consistent. This was also
BACKGROUND:. The transit of blood through the beating heart is a basic aspect of cardiovascular physiology which remains incompletely studied. Quantification of the components of multidirectional flow in the normal left ventricle (LV) is lacking, making it difficult to put the changes observed with LV dysfunction and cardiac surgery into context.. METHODS:. Three dimensional, three directional, time resolved magnetic resonance phase-contrast velocity mapping was performed at 1.5 Tesla in 17 normal subjects, 6 female, aged 44+/-14 years (mean+/-SD). We visualized and measured the relative volumes of LV flow components and the diastolic changes in inflowing kinetic energy (KE). Of total diastolic inflow volume, 44+/-11% followed a direct, albeit curved route to systolic ejection (videos 1 and 2), in contrast to 11% in a subject with mildly dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM), who was included for preliminary comparison (video 3). In normals, 16+/-8% of the KE of inflow was conserved to the end of ...

3d diagram of the human heart which I am using for a KS2 classroom display. Left ventricle and right ventricle contain sealed food bags with paint for pupils to feel and squeeze, representing oxygenated and deoxygenated blood. Really pleased with the result.
The pCa curve can shift to the left increased Ca2+ sensitivity or to the right decreased Ca2+ sensitivity. The extent of shift can be estimated from the difference of the pCa values at 50% activity. The shift may be small, 0.05 pCa, or large ,1.0 pCa.. There are several factors, which influence the Ca2+ sensitivity of the myocardium. In case of the Force - pCa relationship the factors are:TN-I phosphorylation, p-tropomyosin, aging, acidosis, sarcomere length, temperature, ionic strength, caffeine, or other agents (Bers, 2001). It should be mentioned that most Force - pCa relationship were measured on cardiac myofilaments with their sarcolemma removed by Triton treatment, skinned fibres; the Ca2+ sensitivity of the skinned preparations may differ from those of intact heart ventricles.. Some authors attribute the differences in Ca2+ sensitivity among hearts of various animals, frog, guinea pig, rat, rabbit, or cow, to differences in their TN-C content. On the other hand, others feel that the ...
What is the difference between Left and Right Ventricle? Left ventricle is the left lower chamber of the heart while right ventricle is the right lower ..
Your left ventricle forces oxygen-rich blood into your arteries, which carry it throughout your body. The blood returns to the right atrium, which passes it down to the right ventricle. The right ventricle pumps this blood to the lungs, where it picks up oxygen. Oxygen-rich blood then returns to the left atrium, which dumps it into the left ventricle, and the cycle repeats. Valves between the chambers prevent backwash.. When the left ventricle contracts, forcing blood out into the body, its called ejection since it is ejecting the blood out into your arteries. Since the big pumper on the lower left is the one that pushes blood throughout your body, that is where they usually measure heart function - the left ventricle ...
Ventricle, muscular chamber that pumps blood out of the heart and into the circulatory system. Ventricles occur among some invertebrates. Among vertebrates, fishes and amphibians generally have a single ventricle, while reptiles, birds, and mammals have two. In humans, the ventricles are the two
Methods for cardiac ventricular restoration include delivering an implantable expandable device into the ventricle via a catheter. The expandable device is anchored either to the wall of the left ventricle or to the inter-ventricular septum and then expanded. When expanded, the device assumes a size and shape which fills the lower portion of the ventricular cavity restoring the normal volume and ellipsoid shape of the remaining portion of the cavity and favorably altering myocardial oxygen demand and wall stress.
Cardiac ventricular trabeculae carneae are naturally arising strands of axially arranged cardiac tissues present in both ventricles of the heart. They are minute, seldom ,3 mm in length and 50-500 µm in diameter. Because of these features, they are much favored by experimentalists for the study of the ionic, mechanical, and metabolic function of cardiac muscle. Those most favored arise from the free wall and insert into the atrioventricular ring, but they can be found in almost any location within either ventricle. For studies of myocardial function, specimens that are free-running from origin to insertion are sought. Implicit in their use is the assumption that their tissues are homologous with those of the ventricular free walls and septum. An obvious index of homology is the extent of capillarization. Curiously, and despite the implicit assumption, the literature lacks an explicit test of homology for specimens from either ventricle.. However, in an extensive series of investigations over ...

Double inlet left ventricle (DILV) is a rare condition and its exact etiology is currently unknown. It occurs in 5 to 10 out of 100 000 births. It is suspected to be due to abnormal development of the heart tube during intrauterine life and it leads to the mal-development of heart valves and chambers. As a result, only one heart chamber is actively involved in pumping of blood.

Two pumps side by side.. Left = Oxygenated. Right = Deoxygenated. Atrium = Thin-walled and elastic, so it stretches as it collects the blood. It has a thin muscular wall because it only has to pump blood a short distance to the ventricles.. Ventricle = It has a thicker muscular wall because it has to pump blood a longer distance to the lungs or the rest of the body.. The left ventricle has a thick muscular wall, which means it can…. ...
We acknowledge and thank Dr Fukamachi and colleagues for their comments regarding our report describing the immediate effects of partial left ventriculectomy (PLV) on cardiac performance in a group of 8 patients with severe heart failure.R1 This study used pressure-area relations by echocardiographic automated border detection as a surrogate for pressure-volume relations to assess ventricular function in a predominately load-independent manner. Estimates of end-systolic elastance (Ees) and preload recruitable stroke work demonstrated variable immediate results of PLV. Changes in Ees and preload recruitable stroke work were inversely correlated with semiquantitative histological measures of myocardial fibrosis and directly related to degrees of hypertrophy.. Although Fukamachi et al raise some interesting points regarding the analysis of Ees from our data, they did not account for the fact that we used cross-sectional area as a surrogate for ventricular volume to estimate ventricular performance. ...
BACKGROUND: This study aimed to identify the impact of diabetes mellitus and related comorbidities on long-term survival of heart failure patients who had undergone surgical ventricular restoration. Surgical ventricular restoration is an optional therapeutic strategy for patients with ischemic dilated cardiomyopathy. Reported prognostic predictors for late morbidity and mortality are predominantly related to cardiac conditions, whereas the prognostic impact of comorbidities still needs to be defined.. METHODS: A total of 329 patients (234 nondiabetic and 95 diabetic) who survived the surgical ventricular restoration operation were admitted to this study. Cardiac mortality follow-up data were collected. Actuarial survival curves were calculated for the two groups; differences between groups and the impact of other comorbidities were established using a log-rank test and a Cox regression analysis.. RESULTS: The mean follow-up time was 44 months. Diabetic patients had a significantly worse survival ...

In guinea pig ventricular myocytes, 2 LVACCs can be distinguished under nominally Na+-free conditions on the basis of their sensitivity to the blockers Ni2+ and TTX as well as by their distinct electrophysiological properties. The Ni2+-sensitive current shares many characteristics with ICa(T) previously identified under similar conditions.26 When studying ICa(T) of guinea pig ventricular myocytes, almost all investigators eliminated INa by using Na+-free superfusion solutions.2 21 25 26 27 Most investigators even added Na+ channel blockers like TTX to the external solutions to block any residual current due to Na+ contamination or Ca2+ permeation.27 The presence of TTX certainly excluded the characterization of ICa(TTX) described here.. The ICa(TTX) characterized in the present study corresponds well to the ICa(TTX) described previously in human atrial17 and rat ventricular 18 myocytes. An ICa(TTX) was also detected in 1 study involving guinea pig ventricular myocytes; the IC50 value of 2.4 ...

Several conflicting models have been used to characterize the gating behavior of the cardiac delayed rectifier. In this study, whole-cell delayed rectifier currents were measured in voltage-clamped guinea pig ventricular myocytes, and a minimal model which reproduced the observed kinetic behavior was identified. First, whole-cell potassium currents between -10 and +70 mV were recorded using external solutions designed to eliminate Na and Ca currents and two components of time-dependent outward current were found. One component was a La3(+)-sensitive current which inactivated and resembled the transient outward current described in other cell types; single-channel observations confirmed the presence of a transient outward current in these guinea pig ventricular cells (gamma = 9.9 pS, [K]o = 4.5 mM). Analysis of envelopes of tail amplitudes demonstrated that this component was absent in solutions containing 30-100 microM La3+. The remaining time-dependent current, IK, activated with a sigmoidal ...
A heartbeat is one cycle in which your hearts ventricles relax (diastole) and squeeze (systole) to pump blood. This cycle includes the opening and closing of the valves of your heart.. When your hearts ventricles relax, blood flows from the atria to the ventricles. Your hearts atria squeeze and pump blood into the ventricles. The atria then relax. Your hearts ventricles then squeeze, pumping blood out of your heart.. ...
The determinants of left ventricular mass in children and adolescents have been controversial, and the relative roles of lean body mass, ponderosity, and blood pressure have been debated. The present study provides a more definitive answer to this question because of the use of DEXA, which is the most valid, reliable, and clinically useful method currently available for measurement of body composition in children and adolescents. This allows for separation of the influences of lean body mass and fat mass on left ventricular mass. In this study, we found that lean body mass and fat mass were both statistically significant correlates of left ventricular mass. However, lean body mass is a much stronger predictor of left ventricular mass than is fat mass. These results are consistent with the findings of Goble et al,7 who reported that body weight but not ponderosity is a strong predictor of left ventricular mass. Goble et al also reported that body fat as measured by suprailiac skinfold thickness ...
In the presented work, ischemia, represented by its three major effects, hyperkalemia, acidosis, and hypoxia, has been successfully integrated into two cell models of human ventricular myocytes. The basis of modeling these three effects has been performed according to other groups. However, various enhancements have been conducted as well. First of all, it is the first in the world using a human ventricular myocyte model as basis for modeling of ischemia. For hyperkalemia and acidosis the cell models needed not to be extended since variables for extracellular potassium concentration [K+]o and for the channel conductivities of INa and ICaL were already present. In case of hypoxia, a new ion channel has been incorporated into the models that was proposed by different groups such as Ferrero et al. [83] and Shaw and Rudy [84]. Both approaches have been analyzed and finally merged into one equation that fitted into the cell models of human ventricular myocytes. Therefore, the surface membrane area ...

Although the quantitative analysis of electromechanical alternans is important, previous studies have focused on electrical alternans, and there is a lack quantitative analysis of mechanical alternans at the subcellular level according to various basic cycle lengths (BCLs). Therefore, we used the excitation-contraction (E-C) coupling model of human ventricular cells to quantitatively analyze the mechanical alternans of ventricular cells according to various BCLs. To implement E-C coupling, we used calcium transient data, which is the output data of electrical simulation using the electrophysiological model of human ventricular myocytes, as the input data of mechanical simulation using the contractile myofilament dynamics model. Moreover, we applied various loads on ventricular cells for implementation of isotonic and isometric contraction. As the BCL was reduced from 1000 to 200 ms at 30 ms increments, mechanical alternans, as well as electrical alternans, were observed. At this time, the myocardial
Based on the MRI findings, 4 patients (group A) underwent isolated coronary bypass surgery, and the remaining 4 patients (group B) underwent SVR and mitral valve plasty concomitantly with coronary bypass surgery. Peri-operative changes in ventricular function were quantitatively assessed in each group. The mean end-diastolic volume index was reduced from 115 +/- 29 ml/m2 to 95 +/- 14 ml/m2 in group A and from 163 +/- 35 ml/m2 to 125 +/- 28 ml/m2 in group B. The mean end-systolic volume index was reduced from 91 +/- 25 ml/m2 to 68 +/- 16 ml/m2 in group A and from 135 +/- 36 ml/m2 to 98 +/- 28 ml/m2 in group B. The mean ejection fraction increased from 20 % +/- 6 % to 28 % +/- 9 % in group A and from 17 % +/- 6 % to 22 % +/- 5 % in group B. The mean NYHA functional class was reduced from 3.0 +/- 0.8 to 1.8 +/- 0.6 in group A and from 3.5 +/- 0.5 to 2.2 +/- 0.2 in group B. The authors concluded that DE-MRI was highly effective in helping to select which patients and which areas of the left ...
Since the 1920s, it has been a dogma that the only manner of normalising LV wall stress, for example during systemic hypertension, is to increase cardiac mass by means of hypertrophy (Karsner et al., 1925; Petersen and Baserga, 1965; Morkin and Ashford, 1967; Morkin and Ashford, 1968), where the myocytes are thickening due to parallel replication of sarcomeres (Dorri et al., 2007). Since then, however, a number of recent investigations of both healthy and sick hearts have shown that hyperplasia can occur after the postnatal period (Linzbach, 1960; Olivetti et al., 1994; Beltrami et al., 1995; Anversa and Kajstura, 1998; Beltrami et al., 2001; Leri et al., 2002; Engel, 2005; Brüel et al., 2007b; Du et al., 2010). It is likely that the pathophysiological response to increased afterload elicits both a hypertrophic response, and a hyperplastic response with formation of- and parallel placement of new cardiomyocytes (Kajstura et al., 1994). Importantly, the combined response to chronically increased ...
Cardiac diseases (e.g. coronary and valve) are associated with ventricular cellular remodeling. However, ventricular biopsies from left and right ventricles from patients with different pathologies are rare and thus little is known about disease-induced cellular remodeling in both sides of the heart and between different diseases. We hypothesized that the protein expression profiles between right and left ventricles of patients with aortic valve stenosis (AVS) and patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) are different and that the protein profile is different between the two diseases. Left and right ventricular biopsies were collected from patients with either CAD or AVS. The biopsies were processed for proteomic analysis using isobaric tandem mass tagging and analyzed by reverse phase nano-LC-MS/MS. Western blot for selected proteins showed strong correlation with proteomic analysis. Proteomic analysis between ventricles of the same disease (intra-disease) and between ventricles of different

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. ...
Left ventricular hypertrophy, defined as an increase in the mass of the left ventricle may occur as a physiologic response to exercise (athletic remodeling aka athletic heart), but is most frequently encountered as a pathological manifestation of cardiovascular disease. The early determinants of athletic remodeling in the general population are largely unknown. In order to longitudinally explore the early determinants of athletic remodeling, we will recruit from the community, physically untrained women who have volunteered to run a marathon. We will prospectively assess left ventricular mass and function by echocardiogram during three consecutive stages/visits:. ...

The heart consists of the right and the left who perform different jobs. Right departments collect the blood that enters from the entire body, and pump it into the lungs. From there the blood goes to the left heart where it is pumped throughout the body. Left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) is an enlargement and thickening of the walls of the main pumping chamber of the heart left ventricle. It can develop in response to certain factors (e.g. high blood pressure or heart disease), which cause the left ventricle to work harder. With increasing load, the muscle tissue in the wall thicken, and sometimes the size of the chambers of the heart also increases. If the hypertrophied left ventricle, it lose their elasticity and eventually can not pump blood throughout the body with sufficient efficiency.. ...
The ventricles are the large lower chamber of the heart. They are responsible for moving blood to the organs and tissues of the body. In ventricular fibrillation, the hearts ventricles contract in a rapid and chaotic manner. As a result, little or no blood is pumped from the heart. Unless medical help is provided immediately, ventricular fibrillation will lead to cardiovascular collapse and sudden death.. ...

Right ventricular (RV) strain analysis using 2-dimensional speckle tracking echocardiography (2D STE) permits practitioners to assess regional and global deformation of the myocardium. Recently, assessment of the longitudinal right ventricle (RV) strain and strain rate using 2D STE has been reported in dogs. Although longitudinal deformation is the dominant component of the RV systole, RV myocardial fibers of the superficial layer are oriented circumferentially and these contribute to the RV pump function (radial deformation). Because this strain component has not been investigated in dogs, we have assessed radial RV strain and strain rate using 2D STE in healthy dogs and dogs with pulmonary hypertension (PH). We have recruited 74 dogs (40 healthy dogs and 34 dogs with PH) in which we have analyzed radial RV free wall strain and strain rate using XstrainTM software. We have used the left apical 4-chamber view optimized for the RV for analysis of the radial strain and strain rate variables ...
In this paper, the Radial Strain (RS) and Strain Rate (SR) was calculated using tagged MRI (tMRI) data. Using tagged magnetic resonance imaging (tMRI), the left ventricle short axis of five healthy adults (three men and two women) and four healthy male rats was imaged during diastolic and systolic phases on the mid-ventricle level. The RS and radial SR of the left ventricle were calculated at the mid-ventricular level of the cardiac cycle. The peak RS for rat and human heart was found to be 46.8 ± 0.68 and 40.7 ± 1.44, respectively, and it occurred at 40% of the cardiac cycle for both human and rat hearts. The peak systolic and diastolic radial SR for human heart was 1.10 ± 0.08 s- 1 and - 1.78 ± 0.02 s- 1, respectively, while it was 4.25 ± 0.02 s- 1 and - 5.16 ± 0.23 s- 1, respectively for rat heart. The results show that tMRI data can be used to characterize the cardiac function during systolic and diastolic phases of the cardiac cycle, and as a result, it can be used to evaluate the cardiac

Methods and Results: Microarray analysis revealed subsets of miRNAs that were upregulated or downregulated in cardiac ventricles from mice at 1 and 10 days of age (P1 and P10). Interestingly, miR-195 (a member of the miR-15 family) was the most highly upregulated miRNA during this period, with expression levels almost 6-fold higher in P10 ventricles relative to P1. Precocious overexpression of miR-195 in the embryonic heart was associated with ventricular hypoplasia and ventricular septal defects in β-myosin heavy chain-miR-195 transgenic mice. Using global gene profiling and argonaute-2 immunoprecipitation approaches, we showed that miR-195 regulates the expression of a number of cell cycle genes, including checkpoint kinase 1 (Chek1), which we identified as a highly conserved direct target of miR-195. Finally, we demonstrated that knockdown of the miR-15 family in neonatal mice with locked nucleic acid-modified anti-miRNAs was associated with an increased number of mitotic cardiomyocytes and ...
A VAD is a mechanical device that is used to take over the pumping function for one or both of the hearts ventricles and may be required to support the heart in order to ensure the amount of blood pumped out by the heart per minute is enough to meet the bodys needs.

An artificial ventricle for use as part of a total artificial heart for implantation within a living being as part of its circulatory system. The ventricle includes a soft and flexible blood pumping sac which can be collapsed to the substantially flattened, squeezed or rolled-up structure of much reduced size. The sac includes inlet and outlet ports to permit the flow of blood therethrough and is contained within a semi-rigid and removable enclosure which provides pumping means for driving blood flow through the ventricle. The semi-rigid shell includes open and closed configurations to allow emplacement of the shell around an attached ventricle already sutured in place as part of the circulatory system. Removal of the rigid shell is likewise feasible without disturbing the attached ventricle.
The frog circulatory system consist of two atria and one single ventricle. It is the only organ within the coelom which has its own protective covering. The single ventricle is not divided into two compartments like a humans heart, but it is separated enough for the blood not to get mixed. This is done by the arrangement of the frogs heart, where the right atrium dips downward into the ventricle. Which causes oxygen-poor blood that is entering the right atrium to pass all the way down to the bottom of the ventricle. At the same time, oxygen-laden blood is received by the left atrium and enters the same single ventricle. The pool of oxygen-poor blood at the bottom of the ventricle holds up the oxygen -laden blood and prevents it from sinking to the bottom. Then the oxygen-poor blood flows from the ventricle into the vessels leading to the lungs and the oxygen-laden blood is forced into the arteries ...

During the last third of gestation, fetal sheep underwent exponential growth of heart and body (Fig. 2). LV-to-heart mass ratio did not change with advancing gestational age, but that of the RV to heart increased slightly during the same period (Table 1 and Fig. 3).. Lengths and widths of myocytes from the fetal ventricles over the last third of gestation are shown in Fig. 4. The lengths of binucleated myocytes from both ventricles and the lengths of RV mononucleated myocytes did not increase significantly with gestational age (Table 1). LV mononucleated myocytes significantly increased in length but only slightly. Binucleated and mononucleated myocytes from both ventricular free walls increased in width during this period. Accordingly, the ratio of lengths to widths decreased with advancing age in mononucleated and binucleated myocytes of both ventricles (Table 1).. Myocyte volumes, calculated from myocyte dimensions and a correction factor, increased with advancing gestational age (Fig. 5). ...

June 11, 1962 - Made famous by Clint Eastwood in the movie Escape from Alcatraz, Frank Morris and brothers John and Clarence Anglin vanished from their cells and were never seen again. A fourth man, Allen West, believed by some people to have been the mastermind, was also involved; however, he was still in his cell the next morning when the escape was discovered. An investigation revealed an intricate escape plot that involved homemade drills to enlarge vent holes, false wall segments, and realistic dummy heads (complete with human hair) placed in the beds so the inmates would not be missed during nighttime counts. The three men exited through vent holes located in the rear wall of their cell - they had enlarged the vent holes and made false vent/wall segments to conceal their work. Behind the rear wall of the cells is a utility corridor that had locked steel doors at either end. The three men climbed the utility pipes to the top of the cellblock, and gained access to the roof through an air ...
