Waist circumference, but not body mass index, is a predictor of ventricular remodeling after anterior myocardial infarction
Objective: The impact of obesity on ventricular remodeling after myocardial infarction (MI) is still poorly understood. Therefore, the aim of this study was to evaluate the role of waist circumference (WC) and body mass ...
Relações pressão-diâmetro e esforço-diâmetro do ventrículo esquerdo em seres humanos. Padronização e análise crítica do método.
PURPOSE--To provide a critical analysis of the fluid filled manometric system and M-mode echocardiography and, by their association, to standardize the determination of left ventricular (LV) pressure-diameter and stress-diameter ...
Could albumin level explain the higher mortality in hemodialysis patients with pulmonary hypertension?
Background: The pathogenesis of pulmonary hypertension (PH) in hemodialysis is still unclear. The aim of thisstudy was to identify the risk factors associated with the presence of PH in chronic hemodialysis patients and ...
Relação entre volume do átrio esquerdo e disfunção diastólica em 500 casos de uma população brasileira
(Sociedade Brasileira de Cardiologia - SBC, 2013-07-01)
BACKGROUND: Left atrial volume index (LAVI) increase has been associated to left ventricle (LV) diastolic dysfunction (DD), a marker of cardiovascular events (atrial fibrillation, stroke, heart failure, death). OBJECTIVE: ...
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 ...
