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 ...
Plication of the free wall of the left ventricle in dogs with doxorubicin-induced cardiomyopathy
Objective - To evaluate plication of the free wall of the left ventricle, which reduces the left ventricular area and volume, as a method to improve the left ventricular systolic function without cardiopulmonary bypass. ...
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 ...
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 ...
Reduction of diameter of the left ventricle of dogs by plication of the left ventricular free wall
Objective - To determine effects of reducing the diameter of the left ventricle of dogs by plication of the left ventricular free wall. Animals - 8 healthy adult mixed-breed dogs. Procedure - Left lateral thoracotomy and ...
Food restriction-induced myocardial dysfunction demonstrated by the combination of in vivo and in vitro studies
The aim of this study was to test the hypothesis that protein-calorie undernutrition decreases myocardial contractility jeopardizing ventricular function, and that ventricular dysfunction can be detected noninvasively. ...
