  • heart
  • 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. (ahajournals.org)
  • When the heart valves aren't functioning properly, heart valve repair or replacement may be done to relieve congestive heart failure symptoms and improve the quality of life. (crestorheartfailurelawyer.com)
  • early
  • In the right bottom panel of the Figure, where the decreased E es (1.1 mm Hg/cm 2 ) was demonstrated after PLV, the end-systolic pressure-area line did not connect the end-systolic points (left upper corner) of each loop but connected early ejection phase (right upper corner) of each loop. (ahajournals.org)
  • posterior wall
  • Evaluation of left ventricular dimension and posterior wall dynamics during systole (peak shortening rate, peak velocity of circumferential fibre shortening, and peak posterior wall thickening rate) showed similar findings in that only the group who died had abnormal values. (bmj.com)
  • The left ventricular dimension and posterior wall diastolic dynamics (peak relaxation rate, normalised peak relaxation, peak wall thinning, and normalised peak wall thinning rate), however, showed progressively slower rates in all the children in group 2. (bmj.com)
  • cardiac function
  • The aim of this study was to assess whether cardiac functional deterioration can be detected in pediatric patients with type I DM and whether or not a relatively short duration of DM and hyperglycemia influences cardiac function. (biomedsearch.com)
  • We recommend the early institution of close observation of patients with diabetes for alterations in cardiac function, in addition to other diabetic complications. (biomedsearch.com)
  • Second, the administration of BpV(HOpic) significantly reduced IS and suppressed caspase-3 activity following I/R injury and consequentially improved cardiac function at 28 day postinfarction. (biomedsearch.com)
  • Reversible, depressed cardiac function is frequently encountered during septic shock and commonly called septic cardiomyopathy. (pubmedcentralcanada.ca)
  • Peripartum cardiomyopathy (PPCM) is a form of dilated cardiomyopathy that is defined as a deterioration in cardiac function presenting typically between the last month of pregnancy and up to six months postpartum. (wikipedia.org)
  • mice displayed normal cardiac function at baseline and in response to pressure overload-induced cardiac hypertrophy, suggesting that these proteins are not essential. (wikipedia.org)
  • A study investigating AARP function in cardiac muscle in which AARP was knocked out alone or in combination with the other MARPs showed that mice displayed normal cardiac function at baseline and in response to pressure overload-induced cardiac hypertrophy, suggesting that these proteins are not essential for normal cardiac development or in response to a hypertrophic stimulus. (wikipedia.org)
  • It is also believed that angiotensin directly affects cardiac remodeling, and blocking its activity can thereby slow the deterioration of cardiac function. (wikipedia.org)
  • diastolic pressure
  • The index was derived from arterial diastolic pressure (DP) obtained by sphygmomanometer, left ventricular filling pressure (LVFP) obtained by pulmonary artery balloon catheter, and preejection period (PEP) determined from the phonocardiogram, carotid pulse, and ECG. (ahajournals.org)
  • findings
  • The findings in this paper support previously reported data showing enhancement of ventricular function following aortocoronary saphenous vein grafting and provide a means for the serial evaluation of large numbers of patients by noninvasive techniques. (ahajournals.org)
  • Abstract
  • An abstract of the study "Left ventricular function changes in a general pacemaker population," by W. Mampuya and colleagues is presented. (ebscohost.com)
  • An abstract of the article "Weight reduction surgery is associated with substantial long term reduction in left ventricular mass," by Rajarshi Banerjee, Oliver Rider, Jane Francis, Cameron Holloway, Andrew Johnson and Stefan Neubauer is presented. (ebscohost.com)
  • An abstract of the article "Potential utility of global left ventricular end-systolic wall stress measured by CMR," by Judy Luu, James Hare and Matthias Friedrich. (ebscohost.com)
  • Pulmonary
  • Its upper and left angle forms a conical pouch, the conus arteriosus, from which the pulmonary artery arises. (wikipedia.org)
  • reduction
  • Despite a growing body of evidence suggesting that prolonged strenuous exercise (PSE) is associated with a transient reduction in right (RV) and left ventricular (LV) performance, the exact mechanism(s) responsible for this phenomenon is not fully understood. (biomedsearch.com)
  • Weight reduction surgery is associated with substantial long term reduction in left ventricular mass. (ebscohost.com)
  • Sleep apnea is an under-recognized risk factor for heart failure Weight reduction - through physical activity and dietary modification, as obesity is a risk factor for heart failure and left ventricular hypertrophy. (wikipedia.org)
  • Muscle
  • The left ventricular muscle must relax and contract quickly and be able to increase or lower its pumping capacity under the control of the nervous system. (wikipedia.org)
  • Because the muscle cells are replaced with fibrous tissue, the heart loses its ability to contract, compromising heart function. (wikipedia.org)
  • apex of th
  • It is the hallmark bulging out of the apex of the heart with preserved function of the base that earned the syndrome its name "tako tsubo", or octopus pot in Japan, where it was first described. (wikipedia.org)
  • velocity
  • The phase shifts measured from left and right apertures are combined to give the axial and lateral velocity components. (wikipedia.org)
  • sinus
  • Normally, vagal stimulation predominates as, left unregulated, the SA node would initiate a sinus rhythm of approximately 100 bpm. (wikipedia.org)
  • mechanism
  • CARP was originally identified as a YB-1-associating, cardiac-restricted transcription co-repressor in the homeobox NKX2-5 pathway that is involved in cardiac ventricular chamber specification, maturation and morphogenesis, and whose mRNA levels are exquisitely sensitive to Doxorubicin, mediated through a hydrogen peroxide/ERK/p38MAP kinase-dependent as well as M-CAT cis-element-dependent mechanism. (wikipedia.org)
  • atrium
  • Such elongation prevents the valve leaflets from fully coming together when the valve closes, causing the valve leaflets to prolapse into the left atrium, thereby causing MI. (wikipedia.org)
  • volume
  • 1984) for obtaining ventricular volume is as follows: V = 1 α × ρ × L 2 × ( G − G P ) {\displaystyle V={\frac {1}{\alpha }}\times \rho \times L^{2}\times (G-G^{P})} where V is volume α is the alpha factor. (wikipedia.org)
