Proteção miocárdica ao coração hipertrofiado: O eterno desafio
The myocardial protection allowed great advance in cardiac surgery, decreasing the mortality and making more feasible complex surgeries. Latterly, the patient population elected for cardiac procedures has been changing ...
Aldosterone is associated with left ventricular hypertrophy in hemodialysis patients
Objectives: Patients with chronic kidney disease present a higher degree of left ventricular hypertrophy than expected for hypertension levels. In chronic kidney disease the plot between the quotient extracellular water/total ...
Anthropometric measures of increased central and overall adiposity in association with echocardiographic left ventricular hypertrophy
(NATURE PUBLISHING GROUP, 2010)
Left ventricular hypertrophy is an important predictor of cardiovascular risk and sudden death. This study explored the ability of four obesity indexes (body mass index, waist circumference, waist-hip ratio and waist-stature ...
Spironolactone is secure and reduces left ventricular hypertrophy in hemodialysis patients
There is recent evidence that aldosterone play a role in the pathogenesis of cardiovascular disease in dialysis patients, which leads to the opportunity to block its actions for the benefit of these patients. In nondialytic ...
Apical left ventricular hypertrophy and mid-ventricular obstruction in Fabry disease
(Wiley Blackwell Publishing, Inc, 2015-05)
We report the case of a rare cardiac presentation of Fabry disease. Although concentric left ventricular hypertrophy is a major cardiac finding in Fabry disease, there is no case report of dynamic obstruction at mid-left ...
Participação do Estado Contrátil e do Relaxamento Miocárdico na Disfunção Ventricular durante a Transição Hipertrofia-Falência Cardíaca
Purpose - To investigate the participation of contractile state and relaxation in cardiac muscle dysfunction during the transition from stable hypertrophy to cardiac decompensation in aging spontaneously hypertensive rats ...
