Automatic activity in depolarized guinea pig ventricular myocardium. Characteristics and mechanisms. (1/1104)

Membrane potential was changed uniformly in segments, 0.7-1.0 mm long, of guinea pig papillary muscles excised from the right ventricle by using extracellular polarizing current pulses applied across two electrically insulated cf preparations superfused with Tyrode's solution at maximum diastolic membrane potentials ranging from-35.2+/-7.5 (threshold) to +4.0+/-9.2 mV. The average maximum dV/dt of RAD ranged from 17.1 to 18.0 V/sec within a membrane potential range of -40 to +20 mV. Raising extracellular Ca2+ concentration [Ca2+]0 from 1.8 to 6.8 mM, or application of isoproterenol (10(-6)g/ml) enhanced the rate of RAD, but lowering [Ca2+]0 to 0.4 mM or exposure to MnCl2 (6 mM) abolished RAD. RAD were enhanced by lowering extracellular K+ concentration [K+]0 from 5.4 to 1.5 mM. RAD were suppressed in 40% of fibers by raising [K+]0 to 15.4 mM, and in all fibers by raising [K+]0 to 40.4 mM. This suppression was due to increased [K+]0 and not to K-induced depolarization because it persisted when membrane potential was held by means of a conditioning hyperpolarizing puled gradually after maximum repolarization. These observations suggest that the development of RAD in depolarized myocardium is associated with a time-dependent decrease in outward current (probably K current) and with increase in the background inward current, presumably flowing through the slow cha-nel carrying Ca or Na ions, or both.  (+info)

Simultaneous assessment of effects of coronary vasodilators on the coronary blood flow and the myocardial contractility by using the blood-perfused canine papillary muscle. (2/1104)

Effects of 6 coronary vasodilators on the coronary blood flow and the contractile force of the ventricular muscle were examined simultaneously by injecting these drugs to the arterially blood-perfused canine papillary muscle preparation. All compounds produced a dose-dependent increase in blood flow rate, and relative potencies determined on the basis of doses producing a 100% increase in blood flow rate, ED100, were in the descending order : nifedipine greater than verapamil greater than diltiazem greater than dilazep greater than dipyridamole greater than carbochromen, and approximately 1 : 1/12 : 1/26 : 1/100 : 1/300 : 1/500. All drugs except for dipyridamole caused a dose-dependent decrease in the developed tension of the papillary muscle, although nifedipine and diltiazem in low doses produced a slight increase. Relative potencies determined on the basis of doses producing a 50% decrease in developed tension, ID50, were as follows: nifedipine (1), verapamil (1/13), diltiazem (1/40), dilazep (1/100), and carbochromen (1/270). Ratios of the ID50 to ED100 were as follows: diltiazem (5.2), nifedipine (3.5), verapamil (3.5), dilazep (2.5), and carbochromen (1.8). The higher the value the more predominant on the coronary vascular bed or the less depressant on the myocardial contractility were their actions.  (+info)

Electrical and mechanical responses to diltiazem in potassium depolarized myocardium of the guinea pig. (3/1104)

Effects of diltiazem on the electrical and mechanical activities of guinea pig papillary muscle were investigated in K-rich Tyrode's solution (Kc1 12.7 mM). The electrical properties of cell membrane in K-rich solution were also examined in the ventricular muscle fibers. It was found that the overshoot as well as the maximum rate of rise (Vmax) of the action potential were highly sensitive to the extracellular concentration of CaC12 in K-rich solution. Vmax was also affected by NaC1. Diltiazem at a lower concentration (1.1 X 10(-7) M) caused a reduction in the contractile force of K-depolarized papillary muscle without producing significant changes in the resting and action potentials. In the presence of a higher concentration of diltiazem (1.1 X 10(-5) M), the contractile force decreased concurrently with the change in the action potential. Addition of CaC12 restored the original strength of contraction in parallel to the recovery of the action potential, especially in its overshoot and Vmax. From these results, it is inferred that diltiazem may decrease the contractile force of guinea pig papillary muscle either by interfering with the intrasmembrane calcium influx or by intracellularly reducing the free calcium ion concentration in the myoplasm.  (+info)

Altered crossbridge kinetics in the alphaMHC403/+ mouse model of familial hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. (4/1104)

A mutation in the cardiac beta-myosin heavy chain, Arg403Gln (R403Q), causes a severe form of familial hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (FHC) in humans. We used small-amplitude (0.25%) length-perturbation analysis to examine the mechanical properties of skinned left ventricular papillary muscle strips from mouse hearts bearing the R403Q mutation in the alpha-myosin heavy chain (alphaMHC403/+). Myofibrillar disarray with variable penetrance occurred in the left ventricular free wall of the alphaMHC403/+ hearts. In resting strips (pCa 8), dynamic stiffness was approximately 40% greater than in wild-type strips, consistent with elevated diastolic stiffness reported for murine hearts with FHC. At pCa 6 (submaximal activation), strip isometric tension was approximately 3 times higher than for wild-type strips, whereas at pCa 5 (maximal activation), tension was marginally lower. At submaximal calcium activation the characteristic frequencies of the work-producing (b) and work-absorbing (c) steps of the crossbridge were less in alphaMHC403/+ strips than in wild-type strips (b=11+/-1 versus 15+/-1 Hz; c= 58+/-3 versus 66+/-3 Hz; 27 degrees C). At maximal calcium activation, strip oscillatory power was reduced (0. 53+/-0.25 versus 1.03+/-0.18 mW/mm3; 27 degrees C), which is partly attributable to the reduced frequency b, at which crossbridge work is maximum. The results are consistent with the hypothesis that the R403Q mutation reduces the strong binding affinity of myosin for actin. Myosin heads may accumulate in a preforce state that promotes cooperative activation of the thin filament at submaximal calcium but blunts maximal tension and oscillatory power output at maximal calcium. The calcium-dependent effect of the mutation (whether facilitating or debilitating), together with a variable degree of fibrosis and myofibrillar disorder, may contribute to the diversity of clinical symptoms observed in murine FHC.  (+info)

Phospholamban-to-SERCA2 ratio controls the force-frequency relationship. (5/1104)

The force-frequency relationship (FFR) describes the frequency-dependent potentiation of cardiac contractility. The interaction of the sarcoplasmic reticulum Ca2+-adenosinetriphosphatase (SERCA2) with its inhibitory protein phospholamban (PLB) might be involved in the control of the FFR. The FFR was analyzed in two systems in which the PLB-to-SERCA2 ratio was modulated. Adult rabbit cardiac myocytes were transduced with adenovirus encoding for SERCA2, PLB, and beta-galactosidase (control). After 3 days, the relative PLB/SERCA2 values were significantly different between groups (SERCA2, 0.5; control, 1.0; PLB, 4.5). SERCA2 overexpression shortened relaxation by 23% relative to control, whereas PLB prolonged relaxation by 39% and reduced contractility by 47% (0.1 Hz). When the stimulation frequency was increased to 1.5 Hz, myocyte contractility was increased by 30% in control myocytes. PLB-overexpressing myocytes showed an augmented positive FFR (+78%), whereas SERCA2-transduced myocytes displayed a negative FFR (-15%). A more negative FFR was also found in papillary muscles from SERCA2 transgenic mice. These findings demonstrate that the ratio of phospholamban to SERCA2 is an important component in the control of the FFR.  (+info)

Effects of AT1 receptor blockade after myocardial infarct on myocardial fibrosis, stiffness, and contractility. (6/1104)

Angiotensin II type 1 (AT1) receptor blockade attenuates myocardial fibrosis after myocardial infarction (MI). However, whether inhibition of fibrosis by AT1 receptor blockade influences myocardial stiffness and contractility is unknown. We measured left ventricular (LV) hemodynamics, papillary muscle function, and myocardial stiffness and fibrosis in rats randomized to losartan or placebo 1 day after MI and treated subsequently for 8 wk. Losartan decreased LV and right ventricular weights as well as mean aortic and LV systolic pressures in sham and MI rats. LV end-diastolic pressure increased after MI and was decreased with losartan. Maximal developed tension and peak rate of tension rise and decline were decreased in MI vs. sham rats. Interstitial fibrosis developed after MI and was prevented in losartan-treated MI rats. The development of abnormal myocardial stiffness after MI was prevented by losartan. After MI, AT1 receptor blockade prevents an abnormal increase in myocardial collagen content. This effect was associated with a normalization of passive myocardial stiffness.  (+info)

Regulation of energy consumption in cardiac muscle: analysis of isometric contractions. (7/1104)

The well-known linear relationship between oxygen consumption and force-length area or the force-time integral is analyzed here for isometric contractions. The analysis, which is based on a biochemical model that couples calcium kinetics with cross-bridge cycling, indicates that the change in the number of force-generating cross bridges with the change in the sarcomere length depends on the force generated by the cross bridges. This positive-feedback phenomenon is consistent with our reported cooperativity mechanism, whereby the affinity of the troponin for calcium and, hence, cross-bridge recruitment depends on the number of force-generating cross bridges. Moreover, it is demonstrated that a model that does not include a feedback mechanism cannot describe the dependence of energy consumption on the loading conditions. The cooperativity mechanism, which has been shown to determine the force-length relationship and the related Frank-Starling law, is shown here to provide the basis for the regulation of energy consumption in the cardiac muscle.  (+info)

Electrophysiologic effect of enalapril on guinea pig papillary muscles in vitro. (8/1104)

AIM: To study the direct effect of enalapril on cellular electrophysiology of myocardium. METHODS: Conventional microelectrodes technique was used to record the action potentials (AP) of guinea pig papillary muscles. RESULTS: Enalapril caused an increase of the AP amplitude (APA) and the resting potential (RP) in a concentration-dependent manner without any significant change of AP duration, Vmax and overshoot of AP. Superfusion of ouabain 0.5 mumol.L-1 reduced APA and RP, induced stable delayed after-depolarizations (DAD) at different basic cycle lengths (BCL) in a frequency-dependent manner. At BCL 200 ms, the amplitude of DAD was large enough to induce nonsustained triggered activity (TA). In additional presence of enalapril 10 mumol.L-1, the DAD amplitude at 500, 400, 300, and 200 ms were decreased from 5.3 +/- 2.3, 5.9 +/- 2.8, 7.4 +/- 2.1, and 8.9 +/- 1.3 to 2.6 +/- 0.7, 3.1 +/- 1.0, 3.7 +/- 1.5, and 5.3 +/- 1.1 (mV) respectively, all P < 0.01. The compensation intervals were increased in a similar frequency-dependent manner. The number of TA induced at BCL 200 ms was decreased from 3.6 +/- 0.7 to 0.8 +/- 0.2 (P < 0.05). CONCLUSION: Enalapril directly inhibits DAD and TA induced by ouabain through increasing RP and APA, which may contribute to its anti-arrhythmic effect.  (+info)

It is widely recognized that papillary muscle is prone to necrosis in ischemic events because the central artery of papillary muscle is an end artery.18 The frequency of papillary muscle rupture in MI has been reported at 0.4% to 0.9% on the basis of autopsies.19 Rupture of the posterior papillary muscle occurred almost 3 times more frequently than rupture of the anterior papillary muscle in the analysis of 22 autopsies (73% and 27%, respectively).2. On the other hand, papillary muscle necrosis without rupture was documented in 19% to 32% of MI patients in autopsies.20 Coma-Canella et al21 reported that the posterior papillary muscle was involved most frequently (13 cases, 52%), followed by the anterior papillary muscle (8 cases, 16%) and both papillary muscles (8 cases, 32%), in a total of 133 acute MI cases with autopsy.. Noninvasive detection of PapMI without rupture has been difficult premortem and seems to be challenging. Conventional echocardiography can detect only fibrosis and ...
Normal mitral valve function depends upon the maintenance of the proper spatial relationships between the papillary muscles, the chordae tendinae, and the mitral valve leaflets throughout the cardiac cycle. Papillary muscle dysfunction may occur as a result of (1) ischemia or infarction of a papillary muscle, (2) ventricular dilatation (including aneurysm), (3) rupture of a papillary muscle, (4) inflammatory disease of a papillary muscle, and (5) interventricular conduction disturbances.. Papillary muscle dysfunction results in mitral regurgitation and an apical systolic murmur. The characteristics of the murmur vary depending upon the etiology of the papillary muscle dysfunction. In the case of ...
The rupture of the anterolateral papillary muscle is less common than the posteromedial papillary muscle, as the anterolateral muscle has dual blood supply, whereas the posteromedial papillary muscle has a single blood supply. We present a a 49 years old male patient who has presented with chest pain and dyspnoea. A transesophageal echocardiogram was performed which showed that the mitral valve was normal in thickness with a flail anterior leaflet not coapting with the posterior leaflet due to the coronary artery disease. The patient underwent a mitral valve replacement and left anterior coronary artery and obtuse marginal bypass grafting.. Key words: Myocardial infarction; mitral valve insufficiency ...
Aftercontractions, delayed afterdepolarizations, and automaticity occurred in guinea pig papillary muscles that were reoxygenated after hypoxic conditioning. The emergence of dysfunction was dependent on the severity of hypoxic conditioning and on stimulation during reoxygenation. After 60 minutes of substrate-free hypoxia, reoxygenation induced automaticity in a high proportion of stimulated muscles; the automaticity appeared within 1 minute and lasted for 10-20 minutes. After similar conditioning, muscles reoxygenated for 7-15 minutes were stimulated at various cycle lengths. The incidence of automaticity and the amplitudes of delayed events had W-shaped dependencies on cycle length (200-1,000 msec), whereas coupling intervals had M-shaped dependencies. In ventricular myocytes that displayed automaticity after reoxygenation, extrasystolic upstrokes arose smoothly from delayed afterdepolarizations that reached threshold. In tissue, extrasystolic upstrokes usually rose sharply from delayed ...

Solitary papillary muscle (PM) hypertrophy is an unique type of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM), which is characterized by predominant papillary muscle hypertrophy sparing the rest of other left ventricular segments. It has recently drawn our attention about the mechanism of left ventricular mid-cavity obstruction and the influence of pressure gradient in the left ventricular outflow tract (LVOT), thus carries clinical importance. We reported a symptomatic, 83-year-old woman who presented with dynamic, high resting left ventricle (LV) mid-wall gradient without obvious septal hypertrophy or systolic anterior motion (SAM). Subsequent real-time (RT) three-dimensional echocardiography (3DE) and cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) demonstrated large, hypertrophic accessory papillary muscles squeezing mid-cavity of left ventricle producing dynamic pressure gradient during systole in the absence of left ventricular wall anomalies. We proposed that combined use of echocardiography particularly RT-3DE and

The left anterior division of the left bundle branch in AVSDs is increased in length and has fewer fibers than normal. The left posterior division is shorter than normal and provides small branches to the posterobasal wall of the left ventricle. These features of the left bundle branch result in early activation of the posterobasal left ventricular wall and in delayed activation of the anterior superior wall (3), anatomic and electrophysiologic characteristics that have long been regarded as explanations for the left-axis deviation and depolarization patterns of AVSDs.. Why then did Hakacova et al. (5), in this issue of iJACC, propose a new explanation, namely that leftward deviation of the QRS axis in AVSDs is the result of (correlates with) an imbalance in the positions of left ventricular papillary muscles? Papillary muscle locations relative to the interventricular septum and left ventricular free wall are examples of recent clinical interest in the positions of these structures.. The mitral ...
BACKGROUND Despite an incomplete knowledge of the geometry and dynamics of the mitral annulus (MA), papillary muscle (PM), and the chordae tendineac, chordal-sparing MVR is popular. METHODS AND RESULTS The systolic reduction in three-dimensional distance between each PM tip and eight MA sites (DT-A) was measured in nine normal closed-chest dogs by use of surgically implanted radiopaque markers. Three loci (tip, junction, and base) on each PM were also projected onto the MA plane at end diastole and end systole to assess PM dynamics. The anterior PM tip showed significant shortening of DT-A toward the opposite side of the MA or the midanterior MA region (P | .005 or P | .05, respectively, versus same MA side [MANOVA]); conversely, the posterior PM tip DT-A shortened toward the opposite side of the MA near the anterior commissure or the area between the anterior commissure and midposterior MA (P | .005 versus same MA side). Annular projection revealed three-dimensional motion (relative to the MA) of the
The behavior of linear rotor-bearing systems is investigated by using the exact approach of the dynamic stiffness method, which entails the use of continuous rather than lumped models. In particular, the theoretical formulation for rotor systems with anisotropic bearings is developed by utilizing the complex representation of all the involved variables. The proposed formulation eventually leads to the 8 × 8 complex dynamic stiffness matrix of the rotating Timoshenko beam; this matrix proves to be related, by a simple rule, to the 4 × 4 dynamic stiffness matrix, which describes rotor systems with isotropic bearings. The method is first applied to the critical speeds evaluation of a simple rotor system with rigid supports; for this case, the exact results of the dynamic stiffness approach are compared to the usual convergence procedure of the finite element method. Successively, the steady-state unbalance response of two rotor systems with anisotropic supports is analyzed; for these examples, ...
Introduction The understanding of gross cardiac anatomy has been relatively stable over the last 80 yrs, reliant on well-established autopsy findings. The advent of dynamic imaging by cardiac MRI (CMR) and CT provides a window to view anatomic features in vivo, providing insights typically masked at autopsy due to death.. Hypothesis We hypothesize that CMR with its high spatial and temporal resolution allows detection of anatomic features not previously appreciated at autopsy.. Methods Four hundred and one (401) pts underwent CMR (GE, 1.5T) examinations with 255 retrospectively and 146 prospectively examined to determine anatomic features of the LV papillary muscles (PM). Specifically, the basal origins of the PM were defined.. Results The insertion of the PM was seen in 401/401 pts (100%). In 392 out of 401pts (97.8%), the appearance of the PM was not a uniform appearing muscle arising from the inner face of the LV endocardium, but was a finger-like series of long, root-like slender trabeculae ...

Our study investigated POV-induced effects in various preclinical models, since potency for blocking hERG channels alone is not sufficient to assess its proarrhythmic potential.. POV inhibited hERG channels with an IC50 of 13.8 uM using a manual patch clamp assay. Action potential duration (APD) in the guinea pig papillary muscle was prolonged minimally by ∼3% at 1 uM but then was reduced by ∼20% at 10 uM. Thus, the in vitro data suggest that concentrations that could cause hERG-mediated APD prolongation are associated with other effects that lead to a substantial APD shortening.. The effect of POV on the QT-interval was investigated in anaesthetized Beagle dogs using intravenous infusion of 1, 3, 10 and finally 30 mg/kg using an escalating dose design. Heart rate (HR), blood pressure (BP), max. value of the first derivative of the left ventricular pressure (LVdP/dtmax), as well as the ECG were measured and related to plasma drug levels.. The step-wise infusions lead to POV plasma ...

We studied the distribution and nature of the electrical changes associated with myocardial hypertrophy induced by renal hypertension in rats. Standard microelectrode techniques were used to study transmembrane action potentials recorded from endocardial, papillary muscle, and epicardial stimulation from hypertrophied (HBP) and normal (SHAM) hearts. We also determined the effects of stimulation frequency on the action potentials recorded from these preparations. To assess whether altered intercellular electrical connections contribute to the electrophysiological changes associated with hypertrophy, we analyzed the spatial steady state voltage decrement produced by passing intracellular constant current pulses and determined the effective input resistance (Rin) of endocardial HBP and SHAM preparations. Our results show that the action potential prolongation that accompanies hypertrophy is not uniform. Thus, the entire course of repolarization is prolonged in epicardial and papillary muscle ...

The effects of chronic respiratory failure (hypoxia and hypercapnia) on the contractile properties of cardiac muscle are not established. A study was performed of the isometric contractile properties of isolated papillary muscle removed from rats exposed in a normobaric environmental chamber to 28 days of hypoxia (fractional inspired oxygen (FIO2) 10%, fractional inspired carbon dioxide (FICO2) less than 1%), hypercapnia (FIO2 21%, FICO2 5%), and hypoxia with hypercapnia (FIO2 10%, FICO2 5%). Rats exposed to both hypoxia and hypoxia with hypercapnia developed selective right ventricular hypertrophy. Exposure to hypercapnia alone did not alter right ventricular weight. No change in right ventricular papillary muscle contractility per unit muscle mass was observed as measured by maximum active tension, maximum rate of rise or fall of tension, or time to peak tension. Rat cardiac muscle adapts successfully to the altered acid-base environment and increased work load associated with prolonged ...
To test whether ryanodine blocks the release of calcium from the sarcoplasmic reticulum in cardiac muscle, we examined its effects on the aftercontractions and transient depolarizations or transient inward currents developed by guinea pig papillary muscles and voltage-clamped calf cardiac Purkinje fibers in potassium-free solutions. Ryanodine (0.1-1.0 microM) abolished or prevented aftercontractions and transient depolarizations by the papillary muscles without affecting any of the other sequelae of potassium removal. In the presence of 4.7 mM potassium and at a stimulation rate of 1 Hz, ryanodine had only a small variable effect on papillary muscle force development and action potential characteristics. In calf Purkinje fibers, ryanodine (1 nM-1 microM) completely blocked the aftercontractions and transient inward currents without altering the steady state current-voltage relationship. Ryanodine also abolished the twitch in potassium-free solutions, but it enhanced the tonic force during ...
Nitroglycerin was shown to induce significant positive inotropic effect in adequate oxygen supply in isolated papillary muscles of the rat heart left ventricle. The effect depended upon inotropic reserve of the myocardium. The decrease in oxygen supply of papillary muscles inhibited their contractile activity. In these conditions, nitroglycerin exerted no positive inotropic influence on papillary muscles. Positive inotropic action of nitroglycerin became weaker after preliminary perfusion of papillary muscles with propranolol. Calcium antagonist verapamil completely abolished the positive inotropic action of nitroglycerin. The data suggest that positive inotropic action of nitroglycerin depends upon transsarcolemmal influx of calcium ions and is partially associated with the stimulation of myocardiac beta-receptors.
The present study aimed to characterize the inotropic and vasodilatory properties of the K-ATP channel opener nicorandil (NIC) in isolated human cardiac tissue. For comparison, the Ca+2 channel blockers diltiazem (DIL) and nifedipine (NIF) have been studied. Concentration-dependent effects of NIC, DIL and NIF on the force of contraction (FOC) and the vascular tone have been studied on left ventricular papillary muscle strips (dilated cardiomyopathy, New York Heart Association Class IV, n = 20; nonfailing, donor hearts, n = 4), on right auricular trabeculae (nonfailing, n = 5) and on precontracted (prostaglandin F2 alpha: 0.3, 0.5 or 1 mumol/l) isolated human coronary artery rings (cardiac transplantation, n = 15). NIC, DIL and NIF concentration-dependently reduced the FOC of the papillary muscle preparations. However, the IC25 for the negative inotropic effect was significantly higher for NIC compared to DIL and NIF. The maximal negative inotropic effects of NIC, DIL and NIF (100 mumol/l) were ...
The papillary muscles are muscles located in the ventricles of the heart. They attach to the cusps of the atrioventricular valves (also known as the mitral and tricuspid valves) via the chordae tendineae and contract to prevent inversion or prolapse of these valves on systole (or ventricular contraction).[1] The papillary muscles constitute about 10% of the total heart mass.[2] ...
She was placed on extracorporeal membrane oxygenation that was successfully weaned 3 days later. Following this, she made a remarkable early recovery. One month later, just prior to discharge, she expired after developing pneumonia that progressed to sepsis with multiorgan failure.. Discussion. Papillary muscle rupture occurs most frequently within 2 to 7 days after a myocardial infarction.4 This patient presented at least 24 hours after the onset of chest pain. Rupture of the posteromedial papillary muscle occurs much more frequently than rupture of the anterolateral muscle. This is due to differences in blood supply, with the posteromedial muscle receiving blood only from the posterior descending artery while the anterolateral muscle receives a dual blood supply from both the left anterior descending and left circumflex arteries. Given the singular blood supply to the posteromedial muscle, about half the cases of rupture occur with relatively small infarcts.5. Transthoracic echocardiography ...
Previous studies have reported that enhanced antiarrhythmic effects occur when agents that prolong repolarization are combined with agents that block the sodium channels. The mechanism(s) of this interaction have not been elucidated. In this study, the interactions between the prolongation of action potential duration (APD) by a potassium channel blocker and the reduction in the maximal upstroke velocity of phase 0 of action potential (Vmax) by sodium channel blockers were investigated in guinea pig papillary muscle using conventional microelectrode techniques. Agents that produce selective electrophysiologic effects were chosen, including low concentrations of barium chloride (BaCl2), which selectively blocks the inwardly rectifying potassium current without effects on other repolarizing or depolarizing currents, O-demethyl-encainide (ODME), which blocks the activated sodium channel with slow onset/offset kinetics, and mexiletine, which preferentially blocks the inactivated sodium channel with ...
A theoretical ionic model of ventricular myocyte used by Bluhm et al. (8) to analyze changes in sarcolemmal ion fluxes following step changes in cardiac muscle length predicted that a sudden increase in muscle length might induce changes in sarcolemmal Na+ influx with a subsequent increase in intracellular Na+ concentration ([Na+]i) and a concomitant increase in systolic Ca2+ entry through the Na+/Ca2+ exchanger (NCX). However, the mechanism by which the increase in [Na+]i takes place was not proposed. Since NHE1 is an important Na+ entry pathway in cardiomyocytes and it is activated by ANG II, ET-1, and Ald, it seems a suitable candidate for the stretch-mediated increase in Na+ influx.. The first evidence suggesting myocardial stretch-mediated NHE1 activation emerged from experiments published in 1998 in which stretching cat papillary muscles maintained in bicarbonate-free medium (condition in which NHE1 is the only active pHi regulatory mechanism) produced an intracellular alkalinization that ...

OBJECTIVE: The incidence of recurrent mitral regurgitation (MR) after restrictive annuloplasty (RA) was 5% to 20% in several reports. There are many opinions in favor of adding subvalvular procedures to RA to reduce the tenting forces and improve the repair results. METHODS: From March 2003 to May 2010, 55 patients with severe ischemic MR who had undergone papillary muscle (PPM) relocation in conjunction with mitral annuloplasty in our institutions were enrolled. The patients were matched 1:1 with those who underwent isolated RA using the propensity score. The mean left ventricular ejection fraction was 42% ± 6%. The mean tenting area and coaptation depth was 3.2 ± 0.6 cm(2) and 1.3 ± 0.2 cm, respectively. The study endpoints were early mortality and clinical and echocardiographic outcomes, freedom from cardiac-related deaths, and cardiac-related events. RESULTS: In-hospital death occurred in 5 patients (4.5%), without a statistically significant difference between the 2 groups (P = .72). The ...
We sought to evaluate the geometric changes of the mitral leaflets, local and global LV remodeling in patients with left ventricular dysfunction and varying degrees of Functional mitral regurgitation (FMR). Functional mitral regurgitation (FMR) occurs as a consequence of systolic left ventricular (LV) dysfunction caused by ischemic or nonischemic cardiomyopathy. Mitral valve repair in ischemic MR is one of the most controversial topic in surgery and proper repairing requires an understanding of its mechanisms, as the exact mechanism of FMR are not well defined. 136 consecutive patients mean age of 55 with systolic LV dysfunction and FMR underwent complete echocardiography and after assessing MR severity, LV volumes, Ejection Fraction, LV sphericity index, C-Septal distance, Mitral valve annulus, Interpapillary distance, Tenting distance and Tenting area were obtained. There was significant association between MR severity and echocardiogarphic indices (all p values | 0.001). Severe MR occurred more
TY - JOUR. T1 - Echocardiography in acute myocardial infarction.. AU - Quinones, M. A.. PY - 1984/2. Y1 - 1984/2. N2 - Echocardiography has recently gained increasing popularity as a noninvasive technique to assess left ventricular function and regional wall motion in acute myocardial infarction. Detection of regional dyssynergy is possible in over 90 per cent of patients with acute infarction, allowing assessment of site and extent of involvement. Estimates of severity of left ventricular dysfunction on admission into the coronary care unit allow stratification of patients into risk categories in terms of acute and long-term prognosis. Complications of myocardial infarction such as right ventricular infarction, ventricular septal rupture, papillary muscle rupture, papillary muscle dysfunction, formation of mural thrombi, ventricular aneurysms, and pericardial effusion can be diagnosed echocardiographically at the bedside. This article discusses these applications as well as some of the ...
TY - CHAP. T1 - Negative inotropic influence of hyperosmotic solutions on cardiac muscle. AU - Wildenthal, K.. AU - Adcock, R. C.. AU - Crie, J. S.. AU - Templeton, G. H.. AU - Willerson, J. T.. PY - 1975. Y1 - 1975. N2 - In cardiac muscle, moderate degrees of hyperosmolality of the type encountered physiologically or clinically (i.e., less than 200 mosM above control) characteristically exert a positive inotropic effect, which presumably is mediated by increased Ca 2+ availability for binding to troponin. In contrast, skeletal muscle displays significant contractile depression on exposure to hyperosmotic solutions, even at mild degrees of hypertonicity. To determine whether a similar potential for hyperosmolarity induced depression also exists in cardiac muscle, right ventricular papillary muscles from cats were exposed to hypertonic solutions of mannitol or sucrose under circumstances in which positive inotropic effects were precluded by prior exposure to a bathing solution of 4.0 mM Ca 2+ and ...

47 year old male with history of alcoholic liver cirrhosis came in with severe bilateral lower extremity pain and new onset acute bilateral limb ischemia. Vitals at admission were stable and physical examination showed clear cut cool bilateral lower extremities below both ankle joints with all the 10 toes being black suggesting gangrene. Bilateral dorsalis pedis and Posterior tibial pulses were not felt and could not be detected with dopplers. A transthoracic Echocardiogram revealed that the patient had an Ejection fraction of 10-15% with diffuse hypokinesis, also were noted multiple biventricular thrombi with the largest in the left ventricle measuring 50x30mm in size extending from anterolateral papillary muscle upto the septal myocardium. Evaluation with a cardiac and aortic catheterization revealed non obstructive coronaries, complete occlusion of the bilateral anterior tibial, posterior tibial and peroneal arteries at the ankle level with zero flow below bilateral ankle joints.

Sodium exchange was studied in the arterially perfused papillary muscle of the dog. Three kinetically defined phases accounted for all the myocardial sodium: phase 0 (vascular)-λo (exchange constant) = 3.6 min-1 phase 1 (interstitial)-λ1 = 0.62 min-1; phase 2 (intracellular)-λ2 , 0.020 min-1 in quiescent muscles. The phase 2 exchange rate was proportional to frequency of contraction and increased by approximately 0.004 min-1 for each 1 beat/min increment in rate in muscles demonstrating stable function. A sudden increase in frequency of contraction was followed by a marked increase in phase 2 sodium exchange if muscle function did not deteriorate. This increased exchange required 14 min to achieve a steady state. During this time active tension increased (positive staircase) and then declined to become stable as the sodium exchange stabilized. In muscles in which increased frequency of contraction produced a progressive decrease in active tension and contracture, sodium exchange failed to ...
Liguzinediol (LZDO) ester prodrugs 3-5 were synthesized and evaluated in vitro and in vivo for their potential use in prolonging the half-life of the parent drug LZDO (1a) in vivo. Prodrugs 3-5 were found to display a potent positive inotropic effect on the myocardium, without the risk of arrhythmia. Prodrugs 3-5 rapidly underwent enzymatic hydrolysis to release the parent compound LZDO in 1-3 h in rat liver microsomes and rat plasma. The half-life of the parent compound was prolonged after intragastric administration of prodrug 3, which was found to be a superior prodrug candidate for increasing myocardial contractility.

LMAX, a trading firm, has released their Java concurrent ring buffer they call Disruptor (the name is a a play on the Java Phaser). Martin Fowler wrote a long, detailed overview of the architecture, and the project page has a brief, understandable technical paper that is a good introduction. The basic summary: they have very carefully engineered a ring buffer to pass data between threads in Java without locks and garbage collection. As a result, it gets very good performance, if this communication pattern matches your needs. Anyone interested in high-performance code, and high-performance Java in particular, should read the white paper. It contains many interesting lessons such as worrying about cache lines and garbage collection.. My minor complaint is that the Disruptor has been engineered for systems where there is a one-to-one mapping between threads and cores. You can see this in the way that producers add values to the ring: they first reserve a slot, then later publish it. If there are ...
Trisha Gee talks about using Java for low latency programming, the Disruptor, an open source concurrent programming framework developed by LMAX, agile management techniques, and diversity in IT.

  • Examination of the muscular connections between the papillary muscle head and the left ventricle free wall should be performed during myectomy to determine what additional measures may be required to maximize the relief of systolic anterior motion and LVOT obstruction. (acc.org)
  • Isometric contraction occurs where the muscle is prevented from shortening. (anaesthetist.com)
  • Isotonic contraction is slightly more complex - the muscle is preloaded, and then prevented from stretching any further. (anaesthetist.com)
  • Because the stimulated muscle can shorten, lifting the load, the force that the muscle encounters is "isotonic" - that is, throughout contraction the force is constant. (anaesthetist.com)
  • In examining the above curve, note that the curve reflects the sum of the tension generated due to muscle contraction and the resting tension. (anaesthetist.com)
  • If we examine the length of the muscle after an isotonic contraction, and the corresponding tension, we find this tension to be the same as the tension we would have obtained had we performed an isometric contraction at this final length! (anaesthetist.com)
  • Single anterior papillary muscle was found to be 97.22% while posterior papillary muscle was found to be single in 72.28% and double in 27.78. (who.int)

  • It can be seen that using experiments based on the above definitions, one can construct function curves that characterise some aspects of heart muscle behaviour. (anaesthetist.com)
  • Examining such preparations we find that when we "preload" the muscle (stretch it by adding weight before stimulation) then there is an increase in the tension that the muscle develops when stimulated. (anaesthetist.com)
  • As resting muscle is stretched, the tension increases exponentially. (anaesthetist.com)
  • Inotropy is the term applied to changes in heart muscle performance independent of alterations in preload and afterload. (anaesthetist.com)
