• sudden cardi
  • In populations where hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is screened out prior to involvement in competitive athletics, it is a common cause of sudden cardiac death. (wikipedia.org)
  • Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) and sudden cardiac death (SCD) occur when the heart abruptly begins to beat in an abnormal or irregular rhythm (arrhythmia). (wikipedia.org)
  • Cases have shown that the most common finding at postmortem examination of sudden cardiac death (SCD) is chronic high-grade stenosis of at least one segment of a major coronary artery, the arteries that supply the heart muscle with its blood supply. (wikipedia.org)
  • myocardium
  • Pediatric cardiology - Heart - Chordae tendinae - Right atrium - Right ventricle - Tricuspid valve - Left atrium - Left ventricle - Mitral valve - Endocardium - Myocardium - Pericardial cavity - Transverse pericardial sinus - Pericardium - The cardiac physical exam focuses on portions of the physical exam that elucidate information about diseases and disorders outlined below. (wikipedia.org)
  • ARVD is caused by genetic defects of the parts of heart muscle (also called myocardium or cardiac muscle) known as desmosomes, areas on the surface of heart muscle cells which link the cells together. (wikipedia.org)
  • patients
  • 6. An ACE inhibitor (Captopril) should be given orally within the first 24 hours of STEMI to patients with anterior infarction, pulmonary congestion, or left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) less than 40% in the absence of hypotension. (slideshare.net)
  • We report on 21 consecutive symptomatic patients with PMR (median age 78 years) who underwent either repeat MitraClip therapy (n=7) or mitral valve surgery (n=14) after failure of the index procedure with 1-2 MitraClip implantations. (readbyqxmd.com)
  • Lungs
  • From here it is pumped into the pulmonary circulation, through the lungs where it receives oxygen and gives off carbon dioxide. (wikipedia.org)
  • Because the heart is between the lungs, the left lung is smaller than the right lung and has a cardiac notch in its border to accommodate the heart. (wikipedia.org)
  • adequate
  • Without organized electrical activity in the heart muscle, there is no consistent contraction of the ventricles, which results in the heart's inability to generate an adequate cardiac output (forward pumping of blood from heart to rest of the body). (wikipedia.org)
  • patient
  • 14 . A method of treating a patient comprising rerouting blood flow from the pulmonary veins into a prosthetic chamber, and then back into a portion of the heart. (google.es)

  • procedure
  • The lesions created are small, homogeneous and have no effect on cardiac function.The procedure may take several hours or even longer. (patient.info)
  • loop
  • More specific tests such as implantable loop recorders, tilt table testing or carotid sinus massage may be useful in uncertain cases. (wikipedia.org)
  • care
  • 1. A warm welcome is extended to Reid Love, who will take over the position of Program Team Manager, Intensive Care Cardiac Surgery on May 25. (blogspot.ca)
  • method
  • 23 . The method of claim 14 where the return conduit is attached in a first step, and a portion of the pulmonary veins are connected to the prosthetic chamber, before all of the pulmonary veins are disconnected from the native atrium. (google.es)
  • outlet
  • 24 . A prosthetic chamber made from implantable materials, including a one way valve, an outlet conduit and more than one inlet conduit and the inlet conduits are designed to attach to the pulmonary veins. (google.es)
