en] The aim of the present study was to determine possible effects of Escherichia coli endotoxin on peripheral vascular compliance and relate them to concomitant central hemodynamic disturbances. Endotoxin was infused at 0.25 micrograms/kg.min during 2 h in six anesthetized dogs, while six additional animals served as controls. Vascular compliance of the systemic circulation was calculated in intact animals from the changes in CVP after known changes in systemic blood volume. In control dogs, vascular compliance averaged 2.3 ml/mm Hg.kg body weight. During slow endotoxin infusion, cardiovascular effects were measurable only after a certain period of time had elapsed from the start of endotoxin insult and consisted of hypotension associated with systemic vasodilation. Systemic BP decreased gradually from 124 to 68 mm Hg while vascular compliance was finally increased by 100%, when compared to control values. This latter rise was responsible for a reduction in the cardiac preloads. Pulmonary wedge ...
Doppler echocardiography is the cornerstone of noninvasive hemodynamic assessment of any valvular prosthesis, as findings correlate very well with invasive hemodynamic data (14). Similar to surgically implanted bioprostheses, quantitative hemodynamic assessment relies on flow-dependent (measured by continuous wave [CW] Doppler: peak aortic velocity, mean TAV gradients) and flow-independent parameters (calculated from LVOT and aortic measurements: effective orifice area [EOA]; Doppler velocity index [DVI]). However, TAV valves have unique features. Indeed, in-stent flow acceleration occurs at 2 levels (subvalvular and post-cusp) (15), therefore LVOT diameter and flow should be measured at the inferior edge of the stent (Figure 3). Furthermore, final hemodynamic performance depends on the type/size of prosthesis, native valvular anatomy, and procedural variables (13). In this context, establishing a "normal range" is challenging, and comparisons to the baseline hemodynamic characteristics of the ...
Introduction: Coronary hemodynamic factors, in particular low endothelial shear stress (ESS) determine atherosclerosis progression. Vascular remodeling in response to plaque growth affects local blood flow profile and therefore the natural history of individual lesions. Compensatory expansive remodeling (ER) prevents a plaque from encroaching into the lumen, but an excessive ER response promotes high-risk lesions. Hypothesis: Excessive ER aggravates the local ESS microenvironment in humans, leading to accelerated coronary atherosclerosis.. Methods: We investigated the PREDICTION Study database of 3D coronary reconstruction by angiography & IVUS at the time of an acute coronary event (baseline, BL) and at 6-10 months followup (FU). At BL, we identified discrete plaques (max thickness ,0.5 mm, length 9 to 30 mm) with normal adjacent regions and assessed ESS (using computational fluid dynamics) and remodeling in 3mm-long segments of these plaques. At FU, we assessed ESS and plaque growth in the ...

N2 - Left ventricular hypertrophy is an independent predictor of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. However, predictors of cardiac structure and function in youth are not completely understood. On 2 occasions (2.3 years apart), we examined 146 youth aged initially 10 to 19 years (mean age, 14.2 ± 1.8 years). On the initial visit, hemodynamic function was assessed at rest, during laboratory stress (ie, orthostasis, car-driving simulation, video game, and forehead cold), and in the field (ie, ambulatory blood pressure). Quantitative M-mode echocardiograms were obtained on both visits. On both visits, black compared with white youth had higher resting laboratory ...
Background: Knockout mice (KO) deficient in S100A1, an endothelial cell (EC) protein with intra and extra-cellular activity, develop pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) with reduced endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) activity, impaired production of NO, and increased EC apoptosis. To explore therapeutic potential in PAH, the impact of exogenous S100A1 protein delivery on hemodynamics in isolated perfused lungs and signalling in cultured pulmonary ECs was examined in KO and wild-type (WT) mice.. Methods and Results: In vivo, KO exhibited elevation in right ventricular systolic pressure (28.41±3.6 vs.14.9±2.41 mmHg in WT, p, 0.05, n=5), with no change in left ventricular (LV) hemodynamics including LV end-diastolic pressure volume relationship (0.35±0.15 vs.0.33±0.05 mmHg/µl vs.WT, n=8). KO perfused lungs exhibited augmented basal pulmonary vascular resistance (R0) and responses to 1µg/ml Angiotensin II (0.15±0.03 and 0.23±0.06 vs.0.09±0.01 and 0.12±0.01 mmHg*ml-1*kg-1* min-1 in ...
Nearly half of all patients with heart failure have a preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF)1-3. This group is increasing in prevalence, has similar morbidity and mortality to systolic HF, and, despite increasing awareness of the healthcare burden, is without proven treatments1. This is related largely to a limited understanding of the basic mechanisms causing the disease3. Recent studies have added to contemporary understanding, but the pathophysiology remains controversial and incompletely understood4-8. A limitation of most prior studies is that the noninvasive measurements employed are merely surrogates for gold standard, invasive hemodynamic assessment9. There is general consensus that HFpEF patients have increased left ventricular filling pressures (LVDP) and relatively normal systolic function at rest5,8,10, but two critical questions remain: what causes the increase in LVDP, and, are there important deficits in the cardiovascular response to exercise stress in HFpEF patients3,4? The current ...

My research focus is the development of ultrasonic techniques for non-invasive imaging and flow visualization, primarily to elucidate the connections between vascular tissue changes and local hemodynamics. The development and progression of vascular disease involves an inherent feedback loop whereby local hemodynamics (e.g. oscillating shear) affect tissue changes (e.g. plaque development), which in turn affect the hemodynamics (e.g. turbulence). Hence, to investigate the role of hemodynamics in vascular disease, it is important to be able to map out and characterize the local hemodynamics relative to the tissue geometry and composition (available through various imaging modalities, incl. ultrasound), as well as follow any correlated tissue and hemodynamic changes.. ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Cilostazol is useful for the treatment of sinus bradycardia and associated hemodynamic deterioration following heart transplantation. AU - Uchikawa, Tomoki. AU - Fujino, Takeo. AU - Higo, Taiki. AU - Ohtani, Kisho. AU - Shiose, Akira. AU - Tsutsui, Hiroyuki. PY - 2019/1/1. Y1 - 2019/1/1. N2 - Bradycardia is a common complication at the early postoperative period after heart transplantation (HT). The heart rate (HR) usually recovers within a few weeks; however, several patients need a temporary pacemaker or chronotropic agents to stabilize their hemodynamics. Here, we report the first case of transient bradycardia associated with hemodynamic deterioration following HT, which was successfully treated with cilostazol, a phosphodiesterase-3-inhibiting agent. A 59-year-old man received HT for advanced heart failure due to ischemic cardiomyopathy. General fatigue persisted even after the HT. His HR was around 60 beats per minute (bpm) with sinus rhythm. Echocardiography showed no ...

Changes in the major parameters of central and intracardiac hemodynamics and bodys oxygen supply were examined in 93 patients with massive myocardial infarction in the in-hospital period of the disease. Traditional therapy was given to 71 patients; in addition, phosphocreatine infusions (a course dose being 30 g) were used in 22 patients in acute myocardial infarction. Phosphocreatine therapy failed to substantially affect cardiac pump function, but prevented left ventricular dilation and development of congestive heart failure. The patients receiving phosphocreatine showed an increase in bodys oxygen consumption due to its elevated tissue extraction. No adverse effects of phosphocreatine were found.
We retrospectively reviewed the clinical and hemodynamic findings in 397 patients with valvular aortic stenosis at their first hemodynamic evaluation. This series is considered representative of aortic stenosis because it is heavily weighted toward older patients (average age, 61.1 years) and severe aortic stenosis (87.3% of patients had aortic valve area less than 1 cm2). We identified two categories of symptoms: angina and syncope, which develop during a fully compensated stage of aortic stenosis ("prefailure symptoms"); and dyspnea or congestive failure, which signifies various degrees of left ventricular malfunction. The preponderance of soft or medium intensity systolic murmur and normal or widened pulse pressure emphasizes the changing clinical picture of aortic stenosis in an aging population. Coexisting coronary artery disease was found in 60% of patients, but those with and without coronary disease did not differ significantly, even in the presence of angina. ...
Background: Common conditions such as obesity and hypertension result in hemodynamic alterations that will induce remodeling of the left ventricle (LV). However, differences between the genders in the relationship of hemodynamics to LV geometry are not well known. The present study aims to investigate differences between the genders in this respect, in a sample of elderly persons. Methods: Echocardiography and Doppler was performed in a population-based sample aged 70 - The Prospective Investigation of the Vasculature in Uppsala Seniors (PIVUS) study (n = 922). Hemodynamic patterns obtained by echocardiography and Doppler were evaluated in relation to four LV geometric groups (normal, concentric remodeling, eccentric hypertrophy and concentric hypertrophy). Results: No significant difference between the genders was observed regarding the prevalence of the LV geometric groups. Mean values of most evaluated echocardiography and Doppler variables differed between men and women, such as LA, IVS, ...
Background. Complications of an inadequate haemodynamic state are a leading cause of morbidity and mortality after cardiac surgery. Unfortunately, commonly used methods to assess haemodynamic status are not well documented with respect to outcome.

We analyzed heart wall motion and blood flow dynamics in chicken embryos using in vivo optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging and computational fluid dynamics (CFD) embryo-specific modeling. We focused on the heart outflow tract (OFT) region of day 3 embryos, and compared normal (control) conditions to conditions after performing an OFT banding intervention, which alters hemodynamics in the embryonic heart and vasculature. We found that hemodynamics and cardiac wall motion in the OFT are affected by banding in ways that might not be intuitive a priori. In addition to the expected increase in ventricular blood pressure, and increase blood flow velocity and, thus, wall shear stress (WSS) at the band site, the characteristic peristaltic-like motion of the OFT was altered, further affecting flow and WSS. Myocardial contractility, however, was affected only close to the band site due to the physical restriction on wall motion imposed by the band. WSS were heterogeneously distributed in both normal and
blood pressure is typically reduced for ∼2 h after a single bout of dynamic exercise in sedentary and endurance-trained humans (20, 31, 34). In general, this postexercise hypotension is characterized by a sustained increase in systemic vascular conductance that is not completely offset by ongoing elevations in cardiac output (20). Both sedentary and endurance-trained women and sedentary men follow this typical pattern of hemodynamics, but endurance-trained men exhibit postexercise hypotension with a different hemodynamic pattern characterized by reductions in cardiac output (44).. Several mechanisms appear to underlie the sustained peripheral vasodilation following exercise. Halliwill et al. (23) demonstrated the baroreflex is reset to defend a lower pressure following exercise; thus, sympathetic vasoconstrictor outflow is reduced postexercise in humans (23). In addition to this reduction in sympathetic nerve activity, there is reduced vascular responsiveness to a given level of sympathetic ...
A hemodynamic control apparatus and method for regulating blood flow within the cardiovascular system in a closed-loop control system using ultrasound measurement techniques to determine a hemodynamic sttus of the patient and to derive a control parameter for modulating the hemodynamics of the system using electrical or pharmaceutical therapy. This apparatus and method provides for the monitoring of cardiac myofibril motion to assess heart contractility and hemodynamic performance, and to control an implantable cardiac assist or therapy device. In this manner, the invention maintains the patients hemodynamic status without invading the left heart or the arterial system of the patient.
This prospective, non-randomized, controlled experimental study looks at the effects of NΩ-monomethyl-l-arginine (l-NMMA) on haemodynamics, oxygen transport and regional blood flow in healthy and septic sheep, and compares these effects with those of noradrenaline (NA; norepinephrine). All sheep were chronically instrumented. Six sheep received l-NMMA (7 mg·kg-1·h-1), six sheep received NA, and seven sheep received the carrier alone (0.9% NaCl). The NA dosage was continuously and individually adjusted to achieve the same increase in blood pressure as observed in matched sheep of the l-NMMA group (non-septic phase). Treatment was discontinued after 3 h. Sepsis was initiated and maintained by a continuous infusion of live Pseudomonas aeruginosa. After 24 h of sepsis, the sheep were again challenged over a treatment period of 3 h with their previously assigned drug (septic phase). During the non-septic phase of the experiment, NA and l-NMMA both caused an increase in mean arterial pressure (MAP) ...
To evaluate whether etanercept, a tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-blocking agent, may counteract hemodynamic deterioration in endotoxemic shock, we designed a prospective, randomized placebo-controlled trial with parallel groups, consisting of 13 pigs aged 10-14 weeks receiving general anesthesia. Five pigs were given 25 mg of etanercept, 1 h before the start of a 4-h continuous infusion of endotoxin. Another 5 pigs were given the corresponding volume of saline, 1 h before the start of a 4-h continuous infusion of endotoxin. Three pigs were given 25 mg of etanercept, 1 hr before the start of a 4-h continuous infusion of saline. At 1 h of endotoxemia, mean pulmonary arterial pressure (MPAP) and pulmonary vascular resistance index (PVRI) increased identically in both groups of pigs receiving endotoxin. Thereafter, two distinct different patterns in hemodynamics were observed. TNF-blocked pigs showed significantly lower MPAP and PVRI compared to controls. In the etanercept-treated endotoxemic pigs, ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - The Effect of Compression Duration on Hemodynamics during Mechanical High‐impulse CPR. AU - Swart, Gary L.. AU - Mateer, James R.. AU - DeBehnke, Daniel J.. AU - Jameson, Stephen J.. AU - Osborn, Jeffrey L.. PY - 1994/9. Y1 - 1994/9. N2 - Objective: To determine whether shorter compression durations combined with fixed increased compression velocity during mechanical high‐impulse CPR (HI‐CPR) improve resuscitation hemodynamics, compared with mechanical standard CPR (SCPR). Methods: A porcine model of ventricular fibrillation was used, with each animal serving as its own control. Twelve anesthetized swine (20-25 kg each) were instrumented for hemodynamic monitoring. Ventricular fibrillation was induced and followed, after 3 minutes, by mechanical SCPR (50% duty cycle) for 10 minutes. Mechanical HI‐CPR was then applied, with compression durations varied randomly at 2‐minute intervals for 20% (COM20), 30% (COM30), and 40% (COM40) of the CPR cycle. A 2‐minute mechanical ...
Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH), which is defined as an elevation in pulmonary arterial pressure and pulmonary vascular resistance, is a severe hemodynamic abnormality common to a variety of diseases and syndromes. Elevation in pulmonary arterial pressure causes an increase in right ventricular afterload, impairing right ventricular function and ultimately leading to inactivity and death. The goal of PAH treatment is to lengthen survival time, to ameliorate symptoms of PAH, and to improve health related quality of life (HRQOL).. Remodulin® (treprostinil sodium), a stable analogue of prostacyclin, possesses potent pulmonary and systemic vasodilatory and platelet anti-aggregatory actions in vitro and in vivo. Recently, Remodulin received FDA approval for intravenous therapy based upon bioequivalence of the intravenous (IV) and subcutaneous (SC) routes of administration. Remodulin is more chemically stable than epoprostenol and may offer potential safety and convenience advantages compared ...
NEW YORK, June 22 (Praxis Press) Exercise training in patients with chronic heart failure improves work capacity, but effects on central hemodynamic function are not well established. Hambrecht and colleagues assigned 73 men younger than 70 with chronic heart failure to an exercise program or to a physically inactive control group (see paper). For the first 2 weeks of the program, participants exercised on a bicycle ergometer for 10 minutes four to six times a day under hospital supervision. For
The shortage of suitable donor hearts for cardiac transplantation is exacerbated by the exclusion of those that exhibit contractile malfunction during the period after brain death but before excision. We have replicated the phenomenon of brain death-induced hemodynamic deterioration in the rat in vivo. After 60 minutes of brain death (defined as the absence of electrical activity in the brain), a variety of indicators of cardiac contractile function fell by approximately 50% (thus cardiac index fell from 21 +/- 2 to 11 +/- 1 ml/min per 100 g body weight). However, once excised and perfused ex vivo, the hearts recovered a level of cardiac function that was identical to that from control animals that had not been subjected to brain death. Similarly, when hearts were excised, stored (6 hours at 4 degrees C), and reperfused ex vivo with blood, they also recovered a functional capability identical to that of normal hearts from animals that had not been subjected to brain death. Our results question ...
Since the E/e ratio was first described in 1997 as a noninvasive surrogate marker of mean pulmonary capillary wedge pressure, it has gained a central role in diagnostic recommendations and a supremacy in clinical use that require critical reappraisal. We review technical factors, physiological influences, and pathophysiological processes that can complicate the interpretation of E/e. The index has been validated in certain circumstances, but its use cannot be extrapolated to other situations-such as critically ill patients or children-in which it has either been shown not to work or it has not been well validated. Meta-analyses demonstrated that E/e is not useful for the diagnosis of HFpEF and that changes in E/e are uninformative during diastolic stress echocardiography. A similar ratio has been applied to estimate right heart filling pressure despite insufficient evidence. As a composite index, changes in E/e should only be interpreted with knowledge of changes in its components. ...

This prospective study compared geometric and hemodynamic parameters in unruptured sidewall intracranial aneurysms for different FD treatment responses at 2 follow-up time points. Other studies have reported on the parameters for differentiation of the aneurysm response,15,16 but we highlighted the relationship between in vivo aneurysm hemodynamics and the treatment responses, and tried to give a hemodynamic explanation for the delayed occlusion. Our results showed geometric and hemodynamic differences between the occlusion and remnant groups at 6 and 12 months. In addition, 4D flow MR imaging before treatment with a FD gave important insights into the ostium hemodynamics that were helpful in predicting the treatment responses. Among all the geometric parameters, a large ostium maximum diameter (,4.9 mm) was constantly and significantly associated with delayed occlusion, similar to a previous report.9. However, ostium hemodynamics provided new perspectives to investigate the influence of the FD. ...

Baseline and surgery characteristics were not different between groups. The mean age of patients was 66 years (SD 8) vs. 68(6), respectively. Mean duration of CPB was 105 minutes (SD 24) vs. 108(28). Weighted PaO2 during CPB was 220 mmHg, IQR (211-233) vs. 157 (151-162, P, 0.0001), respectively. In the ICU, weighted PaO2 was 107 (86-141) vs. 90 (84-98, P = 0.03). Median maximum values of CK-MB were 25.8µg/L, IQR (20.3-32.6) vs. 24.9 (18.0-31.2, P = 0.5) and of Troponin-T 0.35 µg/L, IQR (0.30-0.46) vs. 0.42(0.26-0.49, P = 0.9). Areas under the curve (AUC) of CK-MB (Figure 1) were median 23.5 µg/L/h, IQR (18.4-28.1) vs. 21.5(15.8-26.6, P = .35) and 0.30µg/L/h (0.25-0.44) vs. 0.39 (0.24-0.43, P = .81) for Troponin-T. Cardiac Index, Systemic Vascular Resistance Index, and serum lactate levels (Lactatemax median 2 mmol/L IQR(1.4-2.6) vs. 2.2(1.7-2.6, P = .52)) were similar between groups throughout the ICU period. ...
Shock is one of the leading causes of ICU admission, and is associated with a high risk of death, whatever its cause. Ad- renergic agents are the most commonly used vasopressor agents. Although the alpha-adrenergic properties of these agents raise blood pressure, they can also variably stimulate the beta-adrenergic and dopaminergic receptors. Accordingly, these agents have different haemodynamic profiles as well as different metabolic profiles. Minimal beta-adrenergic stimulation may be beneficial in preventing the decrease in cardiac output related to the increase in left ventricular afterload associated with the correction of hypotension. However, excessive beta-adrenergic stimulation (which can occur as the doses of these agents are adjusted for the vasopressor effect can have profound metabolic effects and promote arrhythmias. Whether these differences in haemodynamic and metabolic profiles impact out- come has long been undefined. Two randomized trials comparing dopamine and norepinephrine ...
Over the years, the hemodynamic monitoring systems market has witnessed various technological advancements in order to better serve the critically ill patients. These advancements have led to the development of minimally invasive and noninvasive hemodynamic monitoring systems with an aim to reduce pain, increase comfort, and most importantly reduce infectious diseases, primarily sepsis. In 2014, the disposables segment accounted for the largest share of the global hemodynamic monitoring systems market, by product; the invasive hemodynamic monitoring systems segment accounted for the largest share of the hemodynamic monitoring systems market, by type; while the hospitals segment accounted for a major share of the hemodynamic monitoring system market, by end user. In 2014, North America accounted for the largest share of the global hemodynamic monitoring systems market, followed by Europe, Asia, and the Rest of the World (RoW). In the coming years, the hemodynamic monitoring systems market is ...

Hemodynamic instability during the first 24-hours of Intensive Care Unit (ICU) admission is associated with increased risk of subsequent morbidity and mortality. Goal-directed hemodynamic support has been successfully used in a variety of patients to improve outcome. In contrast, a similar therapeutic approach applied later, or in patients with established multi-organ failure, has no beneficial effect and may even worsen the outcome.. It is conceivable that there is a window of opportunity during the phases of hemodynamic instability where therapeutic interventions have the greatest potential to influence the subsequent course of critical illness. Large scale uses of therapeutic protocols for early intervention have been hampered by logistic problems. The burden of installing invasive hemodynamic monitoring and protocols is labor intensive and requires a continuous presence of personnel with a thorough understanding of complex physiology. Various techniques have been introduced for monitoring ...
The 18th SPR Hands-on Cardiac MR Basic Course is a three-day intensive course. Goals are to review the necessary basic knowledge of heart disease in children and to illustrate the practical use of MR for morphologic, functional, and hemodynamic evaluation. The course will consist of didactic lectures, free-form discussion sessions, interactive MR scanning, and hands-on post processing sessions. At the completion of the course, the attendees should feel confident in initiating a cardiovascular MR program at their respective institutions to support the increasing demand for cardiovascular MR imaging in recent years. In addition, through this symposium, the organizers hope to create a support network for radiologists and cardiologists relating to issues that arise in the clinical practice of cardiovascular imaging..

Randomized controlled trial of 433 patients at 26 sites randomized to receive therapy guided by clinical assessment and a PAC or clinical assessment alone. The target in both groups was resolution of clinical congestion, with additional PAC targets of a pulmonary capillary wedge pressure of 15 mm Hg and a right atrial pressure of 8 mm Hg. Medications were not specified, but inotrope use was explicitly discouraged. Results: PAC did not significantly affect the primary end point of days alive and out of the hospital during the first 6 months (p = 0.99), mortality (p = 0.35), or number of days hospitalized (p = 0.67). In-hospital adverse events were more common among patients in the PAC group (21.9% vs. 11.5%, p = 0.04), although there were no deaths related to PAC use.. ...

Pacing optimization using information from an electrocardiogram (ECG) and echocardiography (Echo) has been conducted in efforts to improve pacing therapy but is known to be very time consuming and costly. Schaumann et al. showed that an improved method of optimizing AV and VV delays with the Electrical Cardiometry (EC) Monitors. Schaumann determined that by recording stroke volume and cardiac output at fixed atrial rates, for three different AV timing and 5 different VV delays in left-to-right ventricular pacing, optimization could be conducted more effectively. [1] The setup of the EC Monitors and real-time hemodynamic measurements during pacemaker optimization of both the AV timing and interventricular pacing delay proved to be a superior pacing optimization method compared to using ECG and Echo.. ...
Our research lies at the interface of vascular inflammation and endothelial mechanobiology, and addresses the mechanisms of endothelial vulnerability leading to atherosclerosis. We apply a multidisciplinary systems approach, and develop novel technologies and protocols to test how arterial hemodynamics locally regulates inflammation induced by systemic risk factors for vascular disease to affect lesion formation. The outcomes of this work will be the elucidation of a vulnerable endothelial phenotype and a better understanding of mechanisms to guide the development of novel strategies to prevent, diagnose and treat cardiovascular disease.. ...
