Cardiac remodeling induced by smoking: concepts, relevance, and potential mechanisms
(Inflammation & Allergy Drug Targets, 2012)
Cardiac or ventricular remodeling is characterized by molecular, cellular, and interstitial alterations that lead to changes in heart size, mass, geometry and function in response to a given insult. Currently, tobacco smoke ...
Mitochondria in structural and functional cardiac remodeling
(Springer New York LLC, 2017)
© 2017, Springer International Publishing AG. The heart must function continuously as it is responsible for both supplying oxygen and nutrients throughout the entire body, as well as for the transport of waste products to ...
Influence of different doses of retinoic acid on cardiac remodeling
(Elsevier B.V., 2011-07-01)
Objective: The role of retinoic acid in promoting postnatal heart alterations is still unclear. The aim of this study was to evaluate whether the cardiac alterations caused by all-trans- retinoic acid (ATRA) in normal adult ...
Physical training attenuates cardiac remodeling in rats with supra-aortic stenosis
The aim of this study was to test the hypothesis that physical training (PT) attenuates cardiac remodeling and the severity of heart failure in rats with aortic stenosis. Wistar male rats were divided in sham (S, n=10), ...
Spondias mombin supplementation attenuated cardiac remodelling process induced by tobacco smoke
The objective of this study was to investigate the influence of Spondias mombin (SM) supplementation on the cardiac remodelling process induced by exposure to tobacco smoke (ETS) in rats. Male Wistar rats were divided into ...
Vitamin D supplementation intensifies cardiac remodeling after experimental myocardial infarction
(Elsevier B.V., 2014-10-20)
Role of vitamin D in the cardiac remodeling induced by tobacco smoke exposure
(Elsevier B.V., 2012-03-22)
Pentoxifylline Attenuates Cardiac Remodeling Induced by Tobacco Smoke Exposure
(Arquivos Brasileiros Cardiologia, 2016-05-01)
Background: Tobacco smoke exposure is an important risk factor for cardiac remodeling. Under this condition, inflammation, oxidative stress, energy metabolism abnormalities, apoptosis, and hypertrophy are present. ...
Mitochondria, myocardial remodeling, and cardiovascular disease
The process of muscle remodeling lies at the core of most cardiovascular diseases. Cardiac adaptation to pressure or volume overload is associated with a complex molecular change in cardiomyocytes which leads to anatomic ...
