Significance of absent or reverse diastolic flow in the umbilical artery Doppler as the only alteration in the evaluation of fetal well-being in fetuses with trisomy 21
Evaluation of fetal well-being is a clinical challenge. The finding of absent or reverse diastolic flow (ADF/RDF) in the umbilical artery Doppler velocimetry is considered a sign of placental insufficiency. However, it is ...
Diastolic shock index and clinical outcomes in patients with septic shock.
Abstract Background Loss of vascular tone is a key pathophysiological feature of septic shock. Combination of gradual diastolic hypotension and tachycardia could reflect more serious vasodilatory conditions. We sought to ...
Subclinical Detection of Diabetic Cardiomyopathy with MicroRNAs: Challenges and Perspectives

Dual-phase whole-heart imaging using image navigation in congenital heart disease
Abstract Background Dual-phase 3-dimensional whole-heart acquisition allows simultaneous imaging during systole and diastole. Respiratory navigator gating and tracking of the ...
Cardiac stress test induced by dobutamine and monitored by cardiac catheterization in mice
(MYJoVE Corporation, 2013)
Dobutamine is a β-adrenergic agonist with an affinity higher for receptor expressed in the heart (β1) than for receptors expressed in the arteries (β2). When systemically administered, it increases cardiac demand. Thus, ...
Effect of Warmed Irrigation Solution on Core Body Temperature During Hip Arthroscopy for Femoroacetabular Impingement
PURPOSE: To determine the effect of warming arthroscopic irrigation solution on core body temperature during hip arthroscopic surgery in patients with femoroacetabular impingement. METHODS: An analytical, prospective, ...
Surfactant deactivation in a pediatric model induces hypovolemia and fluid shift to the extravascular lung compartment
(John Wiley & Sons, 2013)
BACKGROUND: Surfactant deficiency is the pivotal abnormality in Neonatal and Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome. Surfactant deactivation can produce hypoxemia, loss of lung compliance, and pulmonary edema, but its ...
Positive impact of the participation in the ENCHANTED trial in reducing Door-to-Needle Time
(Nature Publishing Group, 2017)
Door-to-needle time (DNT) is a key performance indicator for efficient use of intravenous thrombolysis in acute ischemic stroke (AIS). We aimed to determine whether DNT improved over time in the Enhanced Control of ...
