Diastolic Dysfunction And Hypertension
(W B Saunders Co-Elsevier IncPhiladelphia, 2017)
Assessment of structural cardiac abnormalities and diastolic function in women with gestational diabetes mellitus
(Sage Publications Ltd, 2015-05-01)
Background: The main manifestation of hyperglycaemia during pregnancy is gestational diabetes mellitus. It can herald diabetes mellitus type 2 and its deleterious long-term effects, such as hypertension and cardiovascular ...
Predicting pH at birth in pregnancies with abnormal pulsatility index and positive end-diastolic velocity in the umbilical artery
(INFORMA HEALTHCARELONDON, 2013-08-02)
Objectives: To identify potential associations between fetal surveillance tests and acidosis at birth in pregnancies with abnormal but positive end-diastolic velocity in the umbilical artery. Methods: A prospective ...
Combined exercise training in asymptomatic elderly with controlled hypertension: Effects on functional capacity and cardiac diastolic function
(Int Scientific Literature, Inc, 2012-07-01)
Background: Aging is associated with changes in cardiac structure and function that are associated with left ventricular diastolic dysfunction. Whether diastolic functional alterations during senescence are manifestations ...
Diastolic function parameters are improved by the addition of simvastatin to enalapril-based treatment in hypertensive individuals
(ELSEVIER IRELAND LTDCLARE, 2012)
Objective: Diastolic dysfunction (DD) is a frequent condition in hypertensive patients whose presence increases mortality and whose treatment remains unclear. The aim of this study was to investigate in a prospective, ...
Maternal left ventricular hypertrophy and diastolic dysfunction and brain natriuretic peptide concentration in early- and late-onset pre-eclampsia
Objective: Pre-eclampsia (PE) is associated with maternal cardiac remodeling and diastolic dysfunction. The aim of this study was to assess and compare maternal left ventricular structure and diastolic function and levels ...
Cardiac remodeling induced by 13-cis retinoic acid treatment in acne patients
Background: Currently, 13-cis-retinoic acid (13-cis-RA) is the most effective therapy for acne. Isotretinoin, a first-generation synthetic 13-cis-RA compound, is associated with numerous adverse effects. To investigate the ...
Assessment of longitudinal myocardial stiffness is not enough to evaluate diastolic function.
(Japanese Circulation Soc, 2013-02)
In the 1960 s, the first studies of diastolic function appeared and from there the interest in this phase of the cardiac cycle increased. Such interest has continued to the present day, when systole and diastole are equally ...
Rats with high left ventricular end-diastolic pressure can be identified by Doppler echocardiography one week after myocardial infarction
(Associação Brasileira de Divulgação Científica, 2007-11-01)
The severity of left ventricular (LV) dysfunction in rats with myocardial infarction (MI) varies widely. Because homogeneity in baseline parameters is essential for experimental investigations, a study was conducted to ...
